sweet remy in the prairie grass (and other outtakes)

Hello, friends! Welcome back. I hope that you all enjoyed celebrating Canada Day and Independence Day this year. :-)))

Today I wanted to share a few extra photos from my first maternity session at Cranberry Flats. These are some that I didn’t include in the original post, but still wanted to share with the world. They are more truer to how the morning went- Remy walking away on her own, us pushing the stroller with Truman attached, a certain toddler not wanting to be in any family pictures, and constant water breaks.

It was 30°C that morning, and we were all sweaty and tired by the end of it. Hitting the timer and running back into the frame on rough terrain was no joke! But it was oh, so fun. It is still one of my favourite personal sessions to date!

Enjoy this short work week! See you in a few days.

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!

surprise! i’m pregnant again!

My beautiful friends and family- today is something that I have been wanting to share with you for months. I’m currently pregnant for the third time! We literally cannot be more excited!

As you may recall, I experienced a miscarriage in December. We lost our second child when I was two months pregnant. While we were going through it, Geoffrey and I both agreed that it would be my last pregnancy. I was convinced that it was my fault, and I didn’t want to carry that guilt again. However, shortly after it ended, I knew that I needed to have hope in my life again. I wanted to look forward to raising another tiny human and everything that came along with it. Its perfect scent, its milky breath, its little smiles, its cooing, even the sleepless nights and blowout diapers and colic cries. I wanted Geoffrey to have another child to love and Remy to have a sibling to play with. I wanted our family to grow. So, two months later, we conceived.

I am currently 4.5 months pregnant. Our little babe is due to join us mid-November. I’m scheduled to have my next ultrasound in a week’s times. We can opt to know what the sex is during that appointment, but we have decided to wait again until baby is here. We have so few surprises in life and I love not knowing what I will be having until we meet him or her. It’s usually a shock, but a good one. :-)))

I haven’t yet been as ill this pregnancy as I was with Remy. With her, I was sick several times a day and had the worst migraines. Then I was put on bed-rest at 31 weeks until I delivered her at 38 weeks. With this pregnancy, I’m only sick once or twice a day. So far, I haven’t had one migraine, just regular headaches. However, being ill assures me that baby is healthy and growing. While I don’t wish for it, it does bring me a sense of peace. That said, fingers crossed that I won’t be confined to a bed for my last trimester!

I hope that you will enjoy taking this journey with me. Motherhood is such a wonderful gift, and I’m so lucky to be able to do it once again with another child.

Love you all!

zara haul

With small children, the turn of the season usually means an almost entirely new wardrobe. Remy is nowhere near fitting into last year’s spring and summer clothes. At age 2 and wearing 3T, I didn’t have one item of clothing that she could wear on days that were above 0!

This year, I decided to not only buy a few pieces from Zara, but to buy her entire wardrobe from there. I wasn’t feeling very well when she needed clothes for warmer weather, and really didn’t feel like zipping around the city in search of cute wears. Zara had free expedited shipping (and free returns), so I really couldn’t say no to that!

Here are some of Remy’s new clothes:

1. Embroidered Dungarees

2. Jersey Two Piece Set

3. Anchor Striped Swimsuit

4. Smiley Face Parka

5. Checked Jumpsuit

6. Floral Jumpsuit

7. T-shirt with Ruffles

8. Ruffled Trousers

9. Jacquard Dress

10. Triangle Print Leggings

11. Linen Bermuda Shorts

12. Frilled Sleeve Dress

13. Leather Boots (I also bought a checked shoe- as seen in the photos- but cannot find them on the website! These I purchased later, and Remy likes them a lot more.)

What are your favourite stores to shop at for children’s items?

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.”
-Rumi
