10 months old

Beau Emmanuelle is now 10 months old!!

She now:

– walks along furniture

– will let go of objects while standing and attempt to stand on her own

– tries feeding herself with utensils

– mimics more and more words and sounds

Here is a look back at Remy and Wilder’s 10 month update. We had his pictures taken in the very same field only three years ago. And Beau is going to the very same mountains in BC that Wilder did at her age. It’s funny how things in life repeat themselves.

Only two more months until she’s one year. Time, slow down.

remy is five

Our smart, strong, spirited, one-dimpled girl is turning 5 years old this week.

She is our lover of life. She greets every morning by exclaiming “what a beautiful day” and calls everybody, young and old, her best friend.

She already fights for what is good and just. If you are sick, sad, or hurt she will race to your side and not leave you until you are well again.

She wants to be both a veterinarian and a superhero when she grows up.

A lover of all people and animals, you will always have a friend in Remy.

Happy birthday my beautiful, pure-hearted soul. Never, ever change who you are.

photo of the day

Screen Shot 2016-02-21 at 10.39.27 AM“[My father] harboured a curious theory about how to develop a sense of beauty in the minds of his children. Every time my mother became pregnant, he would wait until the last three months of her pregnancy and then he would announce to her that ‘the glorious walks’ must begin. These glorious walks consisted of him taking her to places of great beauty in the countryside and walking with her for about an hour each day so that she could absorb the splendour of the surroundings. His theory was that if the eye of a pregnant woman was constantly observing the beauty of nature, this beauty would somehow become transmitted to the mind of the unborn baby within her womb and that baby would grow up to be a lover of beautiful things. This was the treatment that all of his children received before they were born.”

past the golden hour

SHEIN Dress - 3I wanted to try an after Golden Hour photo shoot. The evenings are getting shorter, and I had never successfully done one before. While the lighting can be tricky, the shots don’t always come out clear. Even with a tripod. I also move around a lot when having my picture taken, so that certainly doesn’t help when the camera is already having difficulty focusing.

I will definitely need to experiment more with the editing tools in my Lightroom program. Until then, these were the results.

Enjoy your last day in November, all!

the red dress

Red Dress OOTD - 3Now that my body is ever-changing, I have come to the conclusion about a couple of things in my wardrobe. One is that I really love the colour red. The second is that I hate mini dresses.

Pre-prenatal, I used to only wear dresses.  Most of my frocks tended to be long sleeve, but with a shorter hemline. This would allow me to be able to wear them all year and throughout the changing seasons. If the weather was cold then I would roll down my long sleeves, put on thick leggings and chunky boots. If it was warm, my sleeves would go up and I would forgo leggings and stick with flats. Now, I no longer want to draw attention to my legs. I feel as if I am getting bigger everywhere, and so I want to cover up my pins and put them away until the baby arrives. 

Red Dress OOTD - 4This will probably be the last mini dress that I purchase until after Spring. It will not be my last wine-coloured dress, however. If I can no longer drink it, then I will have to resort to wearing it. :-)

Happy Friday the 13th, everyone!
