This year we were invited to my husband's employers Kids Christmas Party. We had a blast walking around the building, trying to craft with the other kids, and meeting Santa for the first time. Santa pictures to be sent. We are so grateful for the opportunity to make these memories with Spencer. Our next adventure is Christmas and New Years in Vancouver with our West Coast family and friends.

Bye for now! Click. 


Recently we celebrated our son's first birthday. The year went by fairly quickly despite the days feeling long (in a good way). Spencer has changed our lives indefinitely and we couldn't be happier. Nothing has made us feel more complete than spending time with our boy, and making memories.

Happy New Year! Today seemed like the perfect day to ask my hubby for time to post about the birth of our baby boy. Our son, Spencer was born on December 5th at 11:14pm. It was an interesting and exciting experience that was extremely rewarding in the end. Nathan and I couldn't be any more proud of our healthy baby boy. Since he's been born our priorities have shifted to Spencer, and we are enjoying every minute.

Well it's officially one week past my due date and we still have not gone into labour. It's very common for first time babies to be late, and a lot of our friends were 7/8 days late before they went into labour. We have a few Doctor appointments this week to keep monitoring my body, but if I haven't gone into labour towards end of the week I will be "induced." I will try to keep my digital journal updated..

Pictures from 12-weeks to 20-weeks with some of my girlfriends from Toronto, Saskatchewan, and Vancouver. My friend "T" below was due 2-weeks prior and has already had her baby girl! She went into labour 8 days late..

Our boy is really smart, the longer we wait until he arrives, the more I buy.. Found these awesome stuffed animals at Indigo Books + Gifts on the weekend. They had a buy 3 get the 4th free promotion so I bought these three stuffed animals, and we received a parenting book N8 wanted for free. Happy Holidays!
