I skipped a week there as the stomach flu tore through our house. I had only been able to get one run and one bike in so it didn't seem worth keeping track of. This past week was a good one though! Good health, good weather, good quality workouts Monday... Continue reading

I hope all the mamas out there have been feeling the love this week in whichever way their family is best at showing it. While I was out for my Sunday morning run yesterday my husband took our little ones to the store. Emery picked me out a huge bouquet... Continue reading

Training was going great this week until I woke up early Sunday morning with the stomach flu and was forced to take that day completely off. That's okay though because it had been a pretty solid week until that point and I went for my longest run in almost 2... Continue reading

Thanks Leigh! I remember one of my favourite parts about New Zealand was how close everything felt - not the case in Canada haha some big road trips are required here! And yes you are so right about 3 years old being an easier age for travel, I would imagine your 18 month old wasn't so keen on sitting still! I remember you asking about swimming tips - I'm going to make a post on that, that is a great idea!

I've signed up for my first triathlon post-baby (baby number 2 that is) and it's got me all kinds of motivated to train. I'm not someone that needs to feel motivated in order to workout, I'm quite dedicated and can usually get myself to do it even when I really... Continue reading

Man I miss blogging. I've been making sure to post monthly baby updates at the very least because I absolutely love being able to refer back to Emery's and want to have those points of reference for Sully's first year too. It's just the frequency of writing that I miss,... Continue reading

My family headed west in search of Spring last week (this Winter is breaking records across the board: record snowfall, days below zero degrees, no sign of Spring and it's mid-April- it's been insane) and we feasted on our eyes on the green forests and blue waters of Vancouver, Salt...

At eight months old, Sullivan is: wearing 9-12 month size clothing still waking 2-3 times a night usually. I night weaned him early in the month (after the magic effect of ditching the night nap wore off- I had mentioned it in his 7 month post but the "voila- way... Continue reading

Man it's fun having a little girl! She was a little confused when she woke up on Valentines Day to flowers for me and a present for her from Daddy sitting on the kitchen table. Even though last year she went to a super fun Valentines Day party for her... Continue reading

I snapped a few pictures of Sully on Christmas day so I can put one in a small ornament frame for his first Christmas ornament to hang on our tree. I was even able to find the exact same ornament that I have for Emery which I was pretty excited... Continue reading

These were my best nine from instagram (Mom- that means the 9 most liked photos that I posted to instagram this past year. there's like an app that generates it) and since I hardly blogged at all this year that's sort of the best summary of 2017 I've got. Thankfully... Continue reading

At five months old, Sullivan is: reaching for and grabbing everything in sight, which is actually why this post is so late (he turns 6 months old next week..). I sat down in front of the computer while holding him a couple of weeks ago and he grabbed my tea... Continue reading

Caesarean is one of those weird words that looks like it's never spelt right. My eyes keep wandering up to the title of this post double-checking my spelling. It's also one of those words I never thought I would have to spell because I never thought I would be a... Continue reading

I've shared the story of Emery's driftwood door sign before when it belonged on the nursery door, but haven't since shared it's new location - the entrance to her new big kid room. We moved the sign a bedroom over in the Spring, a couple of months before the baby's... Continue reading

At three months old, Sullivan is: being pretty much exclusively going by "Sully", or "Sully Wully", or "Sully Wully Bully". ha, I basically only ever say the name "Sullivan" when introducing him to someone for the first time. it's a good thing we think the nickname "Sully" is so adorable!...

We hit up the Edmonton zoo over thanksgiving weekend so Emery and her cousin could check out the animals. I enjoyed all the animals too, but my favourite were the monkey and bear I brought with me :) My monkey has got some wild toque hair going on. When we... Continue reading

I escaped into the woods for a backcountry dinner date with this cutie last weekend to celebrate our anniversary - our SIX year anniversary! Time is flying.

Our girl turned 3 at the end of August and I still can't believe it although she reminds me every 5 minutes. Three is a big deal, to her and to us. Three is big-kid everything: bed, undies and of course parties. I've learnt that big-kid parties means that the... Continue reading

We escaped to our favourite little piece of paradise last weekend, the cabins where my in-laws live, to spend time with family and share baby snuggles. The cabins were full so we ended up sleeping in my sister-in-law's camper trailer, so it was sort of an unintentional first camping trip... Continue reading

I've been busy mailing and delivering baby announcement cards. I have always loved making cards of all kinds, but using Shutterfly to create beautiful cards from our favourite photos has really taken it up a level! My sister in law came over to our house when Sullivan was just 6... Continue reading
