weekend recap countdown to goldfish

this weekend i just prayed. i prayed God if the goldfish decides to come this weekend let it be and let it be awesome but if it’s ok with you just give joe and i one last weekend as the two of us. i feel a bit like we’ve been given this gift to be […]

finally friday baby moon

well….. this is our last weekend before baby. what?!? WHAT??!?!! this is just nuts to think about but honestly, i don’t think i’ve ever looked forward to a weekend more. we really don’t have anything concrete planned other than a few places that we really want to go. (salt, pentwater, southerner) i know it’s not […]

thirty eight weeks

gulp again. as of today we are officially one week away from having the goldfish. unless it makes a debut before it’s scheduled date. thirty eight weeks officially of pregnancy.  last night my friend aimee and i went and got pedicures and the lady who was giving me a pedicure told me that the signs […]

meet earl gray

in all the hustle on the farm getting ready for baby and the surprise of new lambs i totally forgot to introduce the newest member of our clan… earl gray the ram. since the departure of our beloved ram stan (the sheep that got all our ewes pregnant and then died) we have been shopping […]

weekend recap preparing for baby

i was thinking this morning that i can’t remember the last time i woke up on a monday and did not have a sore back and shoulders. i’m not complaining, i love productive weekends around the house and cottage. this weekend we stuck close to home working on the house, nursery, garden and the bottomless […]

one year

it’s been one year since i first shared the story of the loss of our first baby. it’s been an odd week. i’ve known this day was coming and i’ve honestly just done my best to shove it aside and try not to think about it. it’s a weird feeling when you have a baby […]

finally friday nesting edition

this weekend i’ll be officially “nesting” maybe? i’m sure i’ll squeeze it in somewhere. we’ve actually been chipping away at things all summer so we are kind of nearing the end of getting everything ready. tonight we are heading to a company outing at the whitecaps (baseball) game. I’m so grateful that it’s not 90 […]

thirty seven weeks

yesterday was wild friends. wild. we went in for our last meeting with the specialist for an ultrasound and check up and yep baby goldfish is breech. head is snuggled right up into my left rib as suspected. little bugger. i knew it going in that it had not flipped it has been stuck there […]

doctor appointment

sorry this post is short and sweet but we are off to the specialist for what i believe is one last appointment before the goldfish comes! we are going to check if the goldfish is still the wrong way or turned and how the overall health is. say a quick prayer that everything is good […]

weekend recap mission accomplished

our goal this weekend was to knock several projects off the list before the goldfish arrives and i’m happy to report mission accomplished. we are dead tired, bones are sore and could barely get out of bed this morning but we woke up feeling good and almost ready for the little one. friday night we […]

finally friday after the storm

last night was one of the craziest nights of sleep/non sleep i’ve had in a while. first we came home to a blazing stuffy house because we had to close all the windows and then i kept waking up to the oddest labor dreams. not because i was particularly freaked out from class (surprisingly i […]

why i went to birth class

so tonight joe and i are going to birth class again tonight for session 2 of 4. i’m not going to lie the first one was a little intense. i mean the lady pushed a plastic doll through a knit cervix. that was alot to take in lol. however as corny as it is and […]
