    Water baby. This is Remy's new "walk." I feel like it's an indication that she's spending way too much time with our dogs. 👶🏼🐶🤦🏼‍♀️

mother’s day

“The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the love of a Mother.” St. Therese of Lisieux

I recently had the pleasure of photographing a beautiful family just outside of the city in which we live. They have a young daughter, and so naturally, I couldn’t have been more thrilled to capture them on film.

Both mother and father were so attentive and so affectionate. It was the mother’s love, though, that really stood out to me. Their deep bond was visible. It made me very much yearn for Remy. I couldn’t wait to get home and embrace her!

Here are just a few of those photographs. To see more, or to book your own session, visit Prudence + Me Photography.

I hope that everyone has a wonderful Mother’s Day. Whether or not you have a child of your own, you deserve to be celebrated as a woman.

purdy’s chocolatier saskatoon

Purdy’s Chocolatier is a family-owned company based in British Columbia, Canada. In operation since 1907, they have been a “national favourite” for over 100 years.

Purdy’s Chocolatier recently opened its first store in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. I am so excited for this. Their chocolates are elegant, velvety, and delicious. Ranging from Himalayan Pink Salt Caramel to Snowball, they are unique and distinctive as well. I would say that my favourites so far are Mini Hedgehog, Petit Chocolat, and Almond Caramel. I prefer any chocolate that is simple and melts in my mouth.

Honestly, they were all so good! Try them out for yourself!

dutch growers

I don’t know about you, but I love spending time among plants. I feel like it’s good for my soul.

I recently took Remy to one of my favourite local greenhouses, Dutch Growers. It was a misty spring day and rather than going for our afternoon walk outside in the rain, I decided to instead walk around a greenhouse. That way, we were able to keep warm and take in a bit of nature. It did wonders for us.

Remy adores plants. Every Sunday we water all of the succulents around our home. We also have to water the air plants every second day. She loves watching me do it. I name every plant for her and afterwards she plays with the watering can and plant mister.

It took me years to get acquire a green thumb, so I hope to instill one in Remy at a young age. I’m already very lucky that she has such an interest in greenery!

If anyone ever finds themselves on the Canadian prairies, then please stop by Dutch Growers. You will not be disappointed.

did you ever go to meeting uncle joe?

Has anyone ever put their child in Kindermusik? When my nieces were still young, my sister and sister-in-law enrolled them in the program. All I knew about it was that they sang “toys away” each time it was time to clean up. It was a bit that we did at home, and I didn’t know much about the class aside from that.

I put Remy in Kindermusik when she was eight months old. This picture was taken after her first-ever class. It was actually quite late in the game, as Cuddle & Bounce is from 0-12 months. Each class is 45 minutes in length and is filled with singing, circle dancing, baby massages, reading, sign language, and playing with a lot of different instruments. At first she was overwhelmed with the people as the noise. She’s a very serious baby in public and it takes her usually around 30 minutes to warm up in a room. After that, she squeals and zooms around. I loved Kindermusik from the start, but knowing that Remy wasn’t really into it at first had me questioning if I was even going to keep her in it. I’m so glad that I did! Not only have I made some really amazing friends from the program, but she so enjoys it now. I’ve also learned a lot about her overall development.

Tomorrow, Remy is going to graduate from Cuddle & Bounce and begin Sing & Play, which is for children from 12-24 months. I’m excited but also a little nervous. However, two of her best friends (and mine) will be joining us, so we should be just fine.

I highly recommend Kindermusik for any parent and child! Above is one of my favourite songs that we sing.

11 months

remy-invitation-5Guys, Remy turned 11 months old yesterday. While I’m so happy that she’s growing and is happy and healthy, I’m also really sad that this is our last full month before she turns one year old. It’ll also bring an end to the monthly updates.

Let’s take a look at the extremely eventful previous month. It was what I like to call The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.

remy-invitation-6The Good:

– she now talks! Her first word was “hi” and her second word was “choo-choo”
– she went through a growth spurt and now none of her clothes or pjs really fit her
– she can walk while only holding on with one hand
– she can climb steps

– she loves our cat and will play with him all day
– she makes the cutest lip smacking/tongue sucking sounds
– she’s now in 3 programs; swimming, Kindermusik, and Baby Talk
– she’s down to one nap a day

– she now sleeps 11 hours a night

remy-invitation-11The Bad:

– she won’t sleep in her crib longer than 2 hours, which means we now co-sleep
– she bites when she’s done nursing to signal that she’s done
– she hates to see me leave the room and will crawl and chase me around the house all day

remy-invitation-14The Ugly:

– she got sick for the second time in her life, which turned into roseola

remy-invitation-3Month 10 was the first time in quite awhile that I’m actually considering only having one child. Between her sleeping issues, sickness, and separation anxiety, it was a tough month. However, now that she sleeps with us, she’s getting a solid 11 hours per night, which is nice. She is also happy all day long, and reached a big milestone with talking. In the end, even with its challenges, it was an amazing month. I’m sure when we’re celebrating her birthday next month I’ll be crying for another baby. ;-)

remy-invitation-9I hope that you all enjoyed these updates. Next month Remy will officially be a toddler. Please pass the Kleenex!
