Day 49

I know, I was doing so good with putting my pictures up that same day.
In my defense, I was only home for the morning yesterday.
I went to the city with a friend,
shopping, dinner and a movie.
What more could I want?!
Anyways I used my new toy yesterday morning.
 I realize I am no Bakerella  
but I sure tried!

Day 48

Tomorrow is my 21st birthday,
hubby suprised me by taking the day off
and taking me to the city!
We went to my FAVOURITE restaurant,
where I consumed massive quantities of my favourite soup.
Italian wedding soup.
I really should learn how to make it.
We then shared a pizza and went to the movies!
He also got me something I have been begging for!
A new KitchenAide mixer!

Here he is setting it up for me!
What an awesome way to spend the day!

Day 47

I've gone a little bump crazy.
I don't think it is the best I have done,
but I was in a hurry to see the Canada vs USA game!
(By the way, WE WON!)

Day 46

Look at me go!
Posting a picture the same day I took it!
I know, two bump pictures in a row.
I just can't help myself.

Day 45

Today I tried on my pre-pregnancy jeans.
Needless to say, they didn't fit.

Day 44

Yesterdays photo.
I know, I'm getting in a bad habit of not posting the same day.
I will do my best today.

Day 43

Yesterday I didn't get home till late
which means I didn't post my picture.
So here it is.
Two bumps on a couch.
We watched the Canada vs USA game. 
And yes, I did yell at all of our players...
Next time boys, play like the girls.

Day 42

Today I started to prepare our prefold diapers.
It was a tough and long battle with pots of water and
wait, who are we kidding.  
I watched Burn Notice while preparing them.
Now, before you stop reading this 
because of some misconception about what green parenting is.
There are many different shades of green
Today's picture
(Great book by the way, "Green Babies, Sage Moms" by Lynda Fassa) 
I would like to say that I do want to be a "cloth diapering, babywearing, co-sleeping,
attachment parenting, EC'ing, granola making, organic eating" Mama. 
I also thought I would share the pictures I took of diaper prepping.
First picture, two large pots full of boiling water with a squirt of Dawn.
Second picture, the Bummis prefolds.
Third picture, the Bummis boiling in the water.
Currently they are in the washing machine finishing the prep stage.

Day 41

Today we folded and folded and folded (and "ooh'd and aww'd)
all of Sweet Baby Boy's clothes.
While putting them back in his room I decided to take this picture
And since I feel like a giant puffy version of myself,
I decided to take a picture of how I feel when I see myself.

Ah yes, the glorious chipmunk cheeks, how I love them.

Day 40

Because the 31lbs I have gained haven't been enough
Insert sarcastic laugh here
I decided to make cinnamon buns today.
Yup I'm brilliant.
And yes, it was amazing.

Day 38


Feeling the need to prepare for the arrival of the baby by cleaning, organizing, etc. Often happens toward the end of pregnancy.

I think I have started nesting, seriously I washed all of the little mans clothes and blankets today.
I wonder how much longer this phase will last.

Day 36

Happy Valentine's Day!
Today was the first V-day, hubby and I have spent together.
Even if it was only half a day, I am thankful.
Hubby even made my favourite breakfast for me!
I love you baby. 

Day 35

We went out for Chinese food last night
I snapped this picture while waiting for my spring rolls.
Ps, my Spring rolls had meat in them. Is that normal?
I`ve only had them with veggies in them...

Day 34

I decided to start doing a mini series in honour of Valentines Day.

Day 33

I know, for the most part, that everyone thinks that their husband is the best.
But they are wrong. 
My husband clearly outshines everyone else's.
My husband is the best
He loves me, clearly this is not an easy task.
I am selfish, unmotivated, lazy, look like a beached whale, and whine...just to name a few.
He washes the dishes, even without me asking him. 
He bought me a new hard drive, to store all my pictures so that I wouldn't lose them again.
He reads to the baby, which clearly puts him at number 1.
He's a firefighter, which sometimes drives me nuts. 
He is patient with me, and really everybody else.
He is a hard worker, at one point he was working 3 jobs just to pay for my engagement ring
He is mine, this coming May we will have been together for 6 years. 
We were off-again-on-again dating that time but always within arms reach.
Happy early valentines day my love.
Love Kait.

This is one of the books.

Day 31

Not sure where I got the inspiration for this picture,
but it was so nice and warm outside (+10c) that I needed to go for a walk.
So I cut myself a felt heart, grabbed my camera and off I went. 
This is what I came up with. 
I think I should go outside more often!

Day 30

What has been occupying my time recently.
Knitting the a blanket for SBB (Sweet Baby Boy)
and also watching copious amounts of Tv. 
Love Kait.

Day 29

How I hate it.
Except for the hoarfrost.
I think its beautiful.
It has been foggy here the at night the past week or so, resulting in 
beautiful hoarfrost.

Day 25

You never realize how much you miss something
until it is gone. 
I want my fire place back.

Anyone care to guess how far along we are?

Day 24

Day 24
The hubster and I have decided to do cloth diapers. 
Yes, you read right.
Cloth. Diapers.
So we bought our "kit".
My picture for today is of some of the "prefolds" from the kit.

Day 23 (aka the day the fire place broke)

Funny story, we got home yesterday and my darling hubby was all "lets build a fire!". Since we have a fire place that heats our house for free (cheap? yes) I said "why not". While the fire was burning, a log rolled off (fire faeries I'm sure) and smacked the glass door...Not uncommon. We ignored it and went to bed. This morning rolls around and I come and sit at our computer and glance at the fire place and see that the door is shattered but still in place (does that make sense?) ...perfect photo opportunity. 
Seeing the picture kinda makes me wish I had washed the doors more often....
Here is pulled back picture
Gotta love the "rumpas room" furniture. 

Until tomorrow...
