remy’s birthday photography

Nearly one month ago, we celebrated Remy turning three. I decided that I wanted to throw her a big party this year, given that last year’s party didn’t go as planned. I had originally booked a room at an indoor playground for her second birthday, but my side of the family were fighting with one another and were threatening not to come in order to avoid certain relatives, so I had to cancel it all to make them happy. In the end, it was such a chaotic and depressing birthday and I didn’t want that to be the case again this year. Hence a party for my best gal at one of our favourite places- the Western Development Museum.

The museum was so quiet that morning. I think there were only a few families besides our big group. We spent almost two hours running around. The kids went in and out of buildings, played on the old cars, with trains, and everything else that you could think of. When Remy wasn’t holding hands with her cousins or friend, she was getting held or chasing someone. She loved the attention and everyone there.

I had rented the Palace Theatre for the morning of March 2nd. That included a large room on the second floor, and entire balcony, and a few other little rooms that were up there. I also paid for a catered lunch. Honestly, it was the best and easiest thing ever. It was such a beautiful setting and everyone raved about the food. We had soup, wraps, sandwiches, cheese, pickles, pie, coffee, tea, juice, and more. It was very reasonably priced as well. I can’t wait to have more events there.

This and her Moonrise Kingdom party have been two of my greatest days ever. What a way to celebrate the previous year, as well as turning another year older. I love celebrating her, and getting friends and family together to do so as well. If only people could get along for the sake of a child. Hopefully in time everyone can happily coexist with one another. That would be wonderful.

remy is three

You guys. Remy turns three years old today. Three!!

I feel like this past year went the quickest of all since she was born. Geoff was still living in a different city at the beginning of last year. Then in February, she turned two, and little did I know that I was already two weeks pregnant. Shortly thereafter we found out, and so we filled the year with finalizing renovations on our home, cherishing the pregnancy, and relishing in our last year of having her as an only child.

Over this last year, Remy has gone from barely talking to barely staying quiet. She is now potty trained, can count to fifty (forwards and backwards), knows how to spell her name, can draw faces and recognizable shapes, gets dressed by herself, and helps out with everything related to Wilder. She is still fiercely shy around adults that she does not know, but loves all children of all ages. I would say that this was the year that she grew up.

We love our little goose more than anything. She is certainly not perfect, but she is a sweet, kind, and stubborn little girl who is turning into a beautiful soul. I am sad to let go of two, but am excited for her to turn three and all that it will bring.

Keep growing, my darling. Happy birthday. I love you!

three months old

Our beautiful baby Wilder turned three months old a few days ago.

Last month, I shared on Instagram that he loves his sister, car seat, baths, holding his head up, playing peek-a-boo, and his sister. Lately, he is also really loving his play gym that we bought from IKEA. He can hold onto toys and bring them to his mouth to chew on, and loves to talk when he is happy and content. He also thinks it is hilarious when you stick out your tongue.

Wilder weighs around 14 pounds and is mostly in 3-6 month clothing. His hair is turning from dark brown to blonde, and he has the curliest eyelashes. He is such a smiley, happy, easy, sweet, and loving boy.

We love our rainbow baby so much! Happy three months, mister.

geoffrey’s 33rd birthday

My dear husband recently took another year around the sun. I am not sure why I tend to dedicate a blog post to his birthdays and not mine- maybe because it is more fun to celebrate the birthdays of those that you love. Regardless of the reason, this year, celebrate we did.

We chose to go to the Remai Modern art museum in Saskatoon. Even though it had opened in 2017, we had yet to visit it. After spending the morning getting ready (and trying to help Remy feel a bit healthier), we finally made it out the door. We drove a very short distance, parked, and went inside.

We unfortunately chose a day where they were working on a new exhibit, and so a few of the galleries were closed. The Learning Studio was also not open until later that day. But the museum was relatively empty, and so we explored all three levels with ease. We began with the Picasso Collection, and ended in the gift shop.

It really is such a beautiful building. Everything about it is so eye-catching. The artwork, although minimal, was really engaging as well. The only downside was that it felt like more of a great date destination for us, and not so much a welcoming place for our children. Remy’s favourite part was the play area, which consisted of foam seats, a few children that happened to be on their way out, and the gift shop. She still had fun, but we were mostly telling her “don’t touch that!”

I would love to go back with just Geoffrey if and when we actually start date nights again. Until then, here are those photos from our lovely morning.

Happy birthday, husband!

video of my pregnancy journey


I am very excited to be sharing my pregnancy journey video with you today. I feel as if this pregnancy went much faster and smoother than my first one. Even though I don’t really enjoy being pregnant (from all of the worry and physical symptoms), I certainly do miss it when it is over.

I chose the song “Pray” by Sam Smith to accompany this video. Last year, when I was experiencing so many issues with my second pregnancy, I prayed and prayed for God to make the decision as to whether or not our baby would survive, and to help me accept the outcome. After I miscarried, I couldn’t believe that He chose to take our child away. However, deep down I knew that it was for a reason- one that I didn’t realize until Wilder was born.

I held off on praying for most of this pregnancy. That is, until the end. I was filled with worry that we might lose another one in the final weeks, so I began praying to be able to safely bring Wilder into this world. I did that every night until he was born, and by God’s grace, he was.

Now that Wilder is here, I understand that we had to lose our second child in order to have this beautiful, sweet, easy, calm, and happy baby. My blessed rainbow baby.

Feel free to look back at my first pregnancy video with little Remy.
