This might be it for a few weeks due to parent's 1997 computer...

So, dear friends, tomorrow Noal & I leave for another road trip & visit to family...I promise Im not such a jetsetter once Im back at work but Im trying to make the most of my maternity leave. Plus this Christmas we were supposed to be going home to visit my family but now that Baby #2 might make his/her appearance around then, a longer visit now works out best...

We will be staying with my little brother for a few days in which I am extremely excited about- I miss him more than anything living so far away all these years...We are actually extremely close for a brother & sister- I think I've treated him more like a sister in the fact that he is truly one of my best friends...

Eric is actually really cute with Noal and hasnt seen him since April- Noals changed so much & can play now so it will be fun to see Eric interact with him...


After that I will be home with my parents & friends for 2 weeks...then the hubs will meet me there to celebrate Noals First Birthday...
So, I apologize if I dont blog until then, my parents have a computer from 1997 & the time it takes to log on frustrates me enough to log out...So, until then I hope everyone has a good couple weeks...

Noal is brilliant that's all there is to it...

Mummy~Hood:So, a few of you have asked how things are going with Noal and I must say brilliantly...He goes down for naps & bedtime without a problem now, even plays in his crib before falling asleep at times & my only real complaint is he still wakes up earlier than Id like...5:30 comes a wee bit too soon...But were working on that...

It seems like in the last month or so hes grown into such a little man instead of a baby...He is just about walking, talks all day long & is eating pretty much anything/everything...He climbs stairs, full on plays catch with Deacon, & his baby blond hair is growing like a weed into the cutest curls...




In September I go back to work and now more than ever each day seems to be like a ticking time bomb...Im trying to not think about it & remind myself that in only a few more short months I will be off again with him & baby #2...but it still makes me wish sometimes....

I almost died with this cuteness overload...

Just had to share this cuteness...The other night the hubs surprised me with a new trick he taught the boys...Noal now walks Deacon by holding the leash from his stroller...


Is that not one of the cutest things youve ever seen...I just about died...

Pin Fourteen: This Taco Dip is what I'm craving...

Im so happy the word is out about Baby #2 & I can fully talk about what Ive been craving in the open now...Chicken & fish make me want to puke just writing out the words & dont even get me started on baby food...But pasta, pizza & anything Mexican bring it on!!! Its so weird to me how different each pregnancy is, especially considering I was pregnant with Noal just last year...I like the fact that I can remember everything so clearly...With Noal I was definitely not as pukey & although I wasnt a fan of the sea, I could still stomach chicken...With this little one its nearly impossible...Either way because I am still breastfeeding Noal & now pregnant I gotta get much more down my hatch than normal...

So Pin Fourteen is a little craving I had that I made the hubs try out at a friends last night...Lets just say it was a BIG hit...The adults liked it, the kiddos including Bubs gobbled it up & Big Momma t couldnt get enough of it...

Trust me this little Taco Dip from A Bitchin Kitchen is DELISH....

Had to buy a double stroller...

So, before I left for Calgary I hinted that I had a big surprise...Yesterday, I bought a double stroller & most of my small little town seems to know, so thought Id share our news...


Were having Baby #2 and it took us totally by surprise...I didnt even find out I was pregnant till I was 8 or 9 weeks pregnant- Only sign was I was exhausted but had started the crib training with Noal & blamed it on that...We are over the moon happy as we wanted the kiddos close in age...We know its gonna be a busy few years but I like that Im already in the baby stage & will just continue on...

Out in Calgary with the help of my cousin Rachel, we got a cake made with the following picture on it to surprise and share the news with my family...
So, let the adventure & madness begin...

Thank you Blog World...

I love what Guest Blogger, Justina wrote in her blog- “Life is meant to be captured”...I totally agree whether that’s captured by a photo, a letter or journal to write down the memory or better yet a blog...I feel that although this blog hasn’t turned out to be what I initially envisioned it is a great spot to mark moments in my life- Moments that would too easily be passed by or forgotten as the years go on...So, I guess this is a thank you or my ShoutOut to the blog world for existing...Thank you for giving all of the quarky weird, obsessively documenting parts of myself a place to live and thrive, thank you for giving me a place to share...The amount and variety of blogs out there is impressive- We are all so different & have different reasons for being here, for blogging and reading. ..I guess what I realized is that for me, it's all about saving a piece of this special time in my life...Freezing moments so I can always go back and experience them... It's the sense that even though time marches on, there is a small place in this huge world where everything is safe, where I can always return to and remember...So thanks...
