This week my Mom and I took the girls to the Muttart Conservatory. I’ve realized that planning activities in the morning – whether it be a special outing or a quick trip to the park, makes life with two kids much easier. I’ve recently made it a priority to stick to routine and be back home by nap time. This is because Brynlee experienced a significant sleep regression when we switched her to her big girl room and again when Jess showed up.
Jessica Olive is now 5 weeks old and is as sweet as can be. She currently has bright blue eyes just like her sister did as a newborn and the most amazing smelling chocolate brown hair. I am convinced she’s going to end up looking just like Brynlee with her long eyelashes and little button nose, but people keep saying they can see more of me. Ya well, I’m not going to get my hopes up just yet.
This little girly is growing up so quickly… here’s a little update
– says she wants to be a doctor when she grows up
– obsessed with singing “happy to you” and getting people to blow out “cannels”
– has stopped jamming the soose in Jess’ mouth
So it appears I’ve taken a 9 month hiatus from blogging. In fact, my last blog entry was July 31st, 2016… five days after we found out I was pregnant. From that point on, looking at a computer screen made me woozy, I was barfing six to ten times a day requiring IV Gravol and fluids, plus I was in charge of chasing around our busy toddler.
Yesterday we finally made it to the St. Albert Farmer’s Market and had an absolute blast! Brynlee loved people watching, holding Daddy’s hand and giving strangers hugs ^^^. We were so excited to cross yet another item off our Summer Bucket List… stay tuned for the full list of fun things to do around the city [and mountains] this summer!
One year ago, my lovely sisters and friends threw Brynlee and I an amazing pink and gold themed baby shower. There weren’t any games, but instead they introduced a “time capsule” concept. Each guest was invited to write down their predictions: who Brynlee will look like; her personality; how many siblings and cousins she will have; what she will want to be when she grows up, etc. Read More
This morning I was fiddling around with Photoshop (my nemesis) and came up with this cute stat sheet. We have quite a bit of family and friends who live out of town, so I thought this was a creative way to display and show them what Brynlee is up to these days 🙂
