happy easter

Happy belated Easter!!

I had the idea to have an Easter egg hunt in a field after first reading “Happy Easter, Little Critter” to our children last year. It’s one of our favourite Little Critter books and it’s just so darn cute.

So last year, I hid some eggs in the field directly behind our house and one afternoon that Easter weekend the kids searched for some eggs. I documented it all. Even though I was newly pregnant and very nauseated, we all had so much fun.

This year, I decided to hide the eggs in the farmer’s field beside the park that we walk to almost on a daily basis. It has a few more hills and trees than ours, and I thought that it would be a different experience for Remy and Wilder.

Also, baby sister was here to join us this year and she certainly made it all much cuter!

In all honesty, they love searching for eggs more than the gifts and the chocolate they receive at Easter. I hope to continue this tradition for many years to come. (I may even include the neighbour children next year just like in the book!)

Hope your Easter was hopping!

3 months old

Beau is now 3 months old! This month marks the last of the 4th trimester already.

Honestly, these newborn days are flying by. For the most part, she is a delightful little girl who smiles and coos the day away. She has been spitting up a lot more lately, which can make her more irritable, but with some changes on my end I feel as if we should be able to get a handle on it. I will start to give her probiotic more regularly, and plan to not nurse her for as long as I do. I’m just counting my blessings that she doesn’t have infant acid reflux like Remy did. Those were some hard days.

With that, here are Beau’s latest milestones:

– she received her 2 month immunizations

– she went from the 50th to the 85th percentile in weight

– she is discovering her tongue

– she is starting to give open mouth kisses

– she pushes her soother back in using her hands

– she is starting to teethe and is often chewing her fists

– she has laughed twice!

– she tries to sit upright from a reclining position

This month we are planning on buying her a Bumbo chair because we think she is ready for it. She is growing so quickly- even fitting into 6-12 month clothing! We love her so much and cannot wait to see what she does next.

Have a lovely week!

remy is six

Tomorrow, our beautiful, smart, funny, social Remy girl will be 6 years old!!

We will always have a special place in our hearts for the one that made us parents and who taught us about parenthood. She is such a light in this world and we couldn’t be happier than to call her our daughter.

We love you, sweet girl! Happy birthday!

Our beautiful baby girl is two months old today! How the time flies! 😭

In the last few months she:

– went from newborn to 3-6 month clothing

– went from newborn diapers to size 2

– has started cooing

– smiles all day long

– has discovered her hands

– can roll from tummy to back and back to side

– lastly, baths and us are her favourite thing

She is honestly the most perfect little gift and we are all delighted to have her in our family. She is so loved.
