Christmas 2014 (Week 14)

  We survived our first Christmas as a family of three! Not only did we survive, we managed to have a blast visiting my family in Alberta. It’s so true that having a child makes the holidays extra special. Knowing they are experiencing everything for the first time is pretty cool and I found myself […]

Life with a Baby: Week 12

  Holy moly, our baby girl is 12 weeks old! These have been the absolute best, and most challenging/trying, 12 weeks of my life…but I wouldn’t change a thing. (Ok, maybe I would’ve changed the first 6 weeks of breastfeeding, sleepless nights, but oh well). I honestly never knew how amazing motherhood would be and […]

Life with a Baby: Week 15

  If I could use one word to describe Adriana over the past couple weeks it would be – changing! She is going through what appears to be many developmental milestones. This girl is always in motion. Her arms and legs are always flailing about. I call her squirmy girl multiple times per day. If […]

Life with a Baby: Week 16

  In an effort to maintain some of our sanity during what appears to be the 4 month sleep regression we’ve tried a couple new things this week. I’m happy to report that it’s been helping quite a bit! The first thing is putting Adriana down to bed earlier. One of the big lessons I’ve […]

Life with a Baby: Week 17

  I can’t believe how quickly she’s growing. Her legs which were once long and lanky, have now grown into these beautiful chubby, juicy thighs that I just want to kiss all day long. Oh, baby rolls are just the best! Of course, time is flying by. I know it’s felt like this since she […]

Yup, she discovered her glass-breaking vocal chords and currently loves to squeak, squeal, and shriek alllllll day long. hah. I’m not kidding when I say all day long.

Life with a Baby: Weeks 1+2

It probably sounds silly, but I already feel nostalgic for the passing days of this super sweet newborn stage. Everyone is warning me about how fast the newborn stage goes and I want to cry when I think about how quickly the days are flying by. There’s just something incredibly beautiful about a tiny human […]

Life with a Baby: Weeks 10-11

Before I get into this recap, I thought I’d tell you about my labour music story. During my pregnancy, I always read about other mama-to-be’s making a playlist on their ipods so they’d have music to listen to during labour. Genius, I thought. I need one too. And so I used my pregnancy card for […]

Life with a Baby: Weeks 19 + 20

  This week marked the start of something bittersweet – we transitioned Adriana to her big girl crib for overnight sleeps! It was clear that she had outgrown her bassinet, and I started to feel guilty for putting her down at night in the bassinet when she had this amazing crib mattress to sleep on. […]
