Navigating Life With Two


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.

First Few Weeks With Jess


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.

Easter Wabbit

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.

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!

I Got Us Coffees…

Processed with VSCO with a6 preset

Thursday evening Craig came home from work but had forgotten something in the car. When I asked what it was, he simply said, “I got us coffees”. I was in the middle of reheating my 10am coffee for the 5th time… #momlife and when I told him this, he quickly responded with “well don’t pour it out!”
