    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

fin & vince

fin-vince-13One night a few months ago, Remy was up with the flu. Too worried to sleep, I laid beside her awake for most of the night. To pass the time, I was looking up children’s clothing companies on Instagram. Even though it was a horrible night, I ended up coming across the most beautiful company that makes clothes for kids. They are are called Fin & Vince.

fin-vince-15Fin & Vince’s slogan is “kidswear for the imaginative.” I just love that. To me, the pieces are retro-inspired but wholly practical. The fabrics are soft and the designs are unique. I also love that most of the pieces can be worn for either boys or girls. I don’t like dressing Remy in overly girlie clothes, and I often shop in the boy section for her pieces. This is where the gender-neutral items are.

fin-vince-12I just adore the look of rompers. I often wear them, and I love how they look on Remy. I prefer them over dresses, mostly due to mobility reasons. While dresses are lovely, they are not practical when it comes to crawling. They often get tangled under her knees, restricting her forward movements. I end up having to tuck them into her tights. With rompers, there’s no worry about the fabric becoming tangled. You also don’t have to worry about tights, or pairing a top with bottoms. It’s all one piece. They’re perfect.

fin-vince-14I bought Remy the Stork Romper because I liked the pattern. The pockets are a great feature as well.

fin-vince-11I purchased the Striped Baby Romper for her because of the pattern. Look at it. Isn’t it the cutest thing ever?

fin-vince-10I think that from now on, I will always order from Fin & Vince. However, it will only be a few items at a time due to their prices. It’s a little expensive, but it’s so worth it!

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 3)

This is the last post of Remy’s birthday pictures. I wish that I could publish more! Having you all see the photographs makes it feel as if you were there as well.

Selecting only thirty-six of 333 images was so difficult. However, I think that the ones that I did settle upon embody the essence of the party. In my opinion, it was visually stunning, filled with all of the best people, and love. I wouldn’t have changed a thing.

I am so glad that we went with Meraki + Light. These pictures turned out to be the most beautiful ones that our family now have.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 2)

A few days ago, I revealed the photographs from the first part of Remy’s Moonrise Kingdom party. 

When I had booked Tammy from Meraki + Light, we had discussed having family portraits taken. Given that there was no natural light in the room that we rented, we decided to go into the library itself and take some pictures by the large windows. Here are a few of those photos. I think they turned out perfectly.

remy’s moonrise kingdom photographs (part 1)

2y5a00796-copyWe had decided to hire a photographer for Remy’s birthday party shortly after deciding to make it a big event. Much like her birth, we knew that we didn’t want to worry about capturing the many moments, but to be completely focused on our little girl without any distractions. 

2y5a00837-copyThere is an incredible amount of photographers in our city, so which one would we choose? Knowing that my neighbour has had a few family portraits done, I enlisted her help. I asked her if she could pick her top three photographers in the city, which ones would they be? Without hesitation she answered that she would give anything to be photographed by Meraki + Light. 

2y5a00752-copyWith that in mind, I took a look at their website. I immediately fell in love with each and every one of their pictures. I contacted Tammy (who is also the sweetest person ever), and after a few conversations, booked her for the party.

Here is part one of the pictures.

1st birthday: video

Processed with VSCO with a4 presetI am amazed that my darling Remy will be celebrating her birthday in just two days. Although I have been preparing for her party for over a month, to have a one year old is shocking. 

This last year was by far the best year of my life. My life only truly began once I had my daughter. Before her, I think that I was lost. Now I have a purpose.

Remy is an intelligent, independent, and serious little girl. She loves to talk and eat. She adores books, animals, and being outdoors. She has two teeth, can say four words, mirrors every sound we make, is learning sign language, crawls, and is so close to walking on her own. She looks like her daddy but has my personality. She and I just get one another. 

This last year was not always easy. From acid reflux, to work and school, to all of our family residing in another city or province, to living in three different houses. Yet, the fact that we always had a little face smiling up at us seemed to make every challenge almost or completely bearable. I tried hard to cherish every moment of every day with Remy, and in the end, I very nearly did.

Thank you for joining me in my pregnancy and baby journey. I will always be grateful for our little girl and how she made me a mother. I hope that you enjoy this video that I made, and will continue to follow along for the second year of her life. You guys are honestly so amazing!
