20 weeks

First of all, thank you all so much for all of your kind words on my pregnancy reveal post! You guys are seriously the best. :-))) And now I’m at the mid point of my pregnancy!

So much has happened between weeks 18 and 20. For instance:

baby can now hear our voices
– it has finger and toe prints
– its legs are finally in proportion with its body
– it is covered in vernix
– it can now open its eyes
– I felt its first kicks

This is our babe at my 12 weeks ultrasound appointment. I explained on Instagram that seeing his/her movements and beating heart was just so emotional. With our second baby, I had two ultrasounds. At 6 weeks, it had a slow heartbeat. At 8 weeks, there was none. I specifically waited until I was further along to even book an appointment with this baby, just in case I lost another one. During the appointment, he/she was waving at us on the screen, so I took it as a sign that it was doing fantastic and everything would be OK!

Feel free to revisit my 20 week update with Remy.

Have a lovely weekend, all!

eighth anniversary

Today is our 8th wedding anniversary! 

I truly can’t believe that eight years have gone by. I still feel like those young kids who eloped after dating for less than a year. We had a condo and two vehicles to our name, but neither the life smarts nor careers that we really needed.

I’m not sure if we’re much smarter, and Geoffrey is the only one with a career, but I’m happy with the way that things have turned out. Our lives centre around our child(ren), and we spend every free minute with one another. We have our ups and downs, but still love each other and each other’s company above anyone else. 

This is life, our married life. I love you Geo.

mother’s day

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
– Sophia Loren

Friends, I am stopping in a bit early to wish you all a Happy Mother’s Day!

Remy is the light in my life. She is the greatest blessing that I have ever known, and she makes life worth living. I love our family more than anything, Rowen and future children included. Being a mother takes top priority. Hardships aside, this is the life that I was meant to lead.

Whether you’re a mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, daughter, pet mom, or female in general, you deserve to be celebrated! I hope that you all enjoy your weekend!

“We are born of love. Love is our Mother.”

remy’s 2nd birthday photography

This year, Remy’s birthday party didn’t go as planned. I had initially booked a room at a local play centre and had invited all of our family members that live near us. As her birthday drew closer, more and more of our family were unable to make it. This included my husband! With less than two weeks to go, I had no choice but to cancel everything. Instead, we ended up having about four mini parties with various family members on the days that worked for them. It was a week of sheer exhaustion (given that no one actually lives in the city), but we made it! Remy is so loved, which makes me so happy.

For our own intimate celebration with just the three of us, I decided to do a Morning in the Life where I photographed our daily ritual at home. It began with Remy’s bath. Next, we played in our master bedroom. Then Geoffrey and I sat with her while she ate her late morning snack, we opened birthday presents, and then we sat on the couch and played with some of her new toys.

Even though two rooms in our house are under renovations, I wanted to document exactly how we spent even just part of our day at this moment in our lives. From the gentle light of the morning sun in our bathroom, to Remy playing with her toys on our bed, to the length of her beautiful hair, to the shortness of mine, to Geoff’s clothes, I feel as if I have to capture it all. Our home is almost exactly how we would like it- which means that we are probably getting ready to sell it. But, all of this is what makes us unique. This is our life with a now two-year-old.

What sorts of things do you wish to never forget? Good or bad, let me know below.

this time last year

Hey everyone! My not-so-little girl will be celebrating her second birthday in just a few days. I intend on having a post dedicated to her then. In the meantime, I recently had a look back at the photographs from her first birthday. What a whirlwind. It was certainly my favourite party that I’ve ever thrown and attended (probably because the guest of honour and occasion was so special). ;-)))

Here are some additional pictures that I didn’t publish, but love dearly.

See you in a few days!
