I’m at the stage where they recommend going for lots of walks to induce labor. They also recommend resting in case you go into labor... It’s like some sick game to confuse the already emotional. #thirdtrimesterproblems
Had the best birthday eve today!!! Spent most of the day with @torystender trying as many different foods as we could and doing some brainstorming for an upcoming project and then I came home to Ryan baking me a cheesecake 🙌. I mean really, does life get any better?!
Ps. Turmeric lattes are delicious but they will stain your teeth and tongue. Drink with caution 😂
Ryan is out picking up the last of the stuff I need for postpartum and hospital bag... meals are in the freezer, clothes are organized and put away for babe... I’m 38 weeks pregnant but now that I’m ready, I’m feeling antsy. I prefer not being ready I think 😂
Banana Dulce de Leche ice cream 😍
Keep your eyes peeled for @blackmountaincreamery at farmers markets in #YEG this summer. So good!! Plus some of the proceeds go to charity which cancels out all calories right?!
Good morning! We are off to our labor class from 9-4 today. I’m not sure if I’m dreading it because I think its going to be boring or if it’s going to make things too real 😂
What’s everyone else up to today?!
Have you ever heard of Friendship bread? It’s sour dough so it takes awhile to ferment but at the end of ten days you have enough dough to make two loaves and gift three starters to others. And it is ridiculously good! I originally planned on taking a picture of the loaf... but all that was left was these two slices 🤫
Give me some more ideas to get some #simpleactsofkindness going because I am obsessed!
Baby’s first outfit??? What do you guys think??? I’m just sitting here staring at it and freaking out 🎉😭💕
Ps. Newborn diapers smell like baby powder. Anyone else smell diapers while they were pregnant or is it just me?
My brother should have turned 29 today. How do you celebrate that? The irony is that he hated birthdays, found them redundant to celebrate since everyone gets one
Last year my dad suggested we call this “uncles day”. We make this a fun day for the kids so they look forward to his birthday each year. The hope is that it will make it a little easier for us to get through but also gives us an opportunity to tell them about who he was.
I snapped this photo of Layla today at the trampoline park. She was born a few months after he passed. He will never get to meet any of his nieces or future nephews and that breaks my heart. As much as I miss him for me, I hate the fact that I’ll never get the opportunity to see him play with Elizabeth.
If you got the chance to meet him, you probably only saw the serious side (sitting in a corner with his notebook trying to come up with new math laws or disprove old ones) but he was so much fun too. He loved to make jokes and be goofy. Seeing him with toddlers would have been the funniest thing to witness.
So today we went to the trampoline park and then to McDonald’s. I’m gonna have a couple slices of homemade bread in his honour, pretend that I could be eating one of his cinnamon scones or rosemary sea salt crackers instead but be grateful that there’s no watery curry I have to pretend to enjoy 😂
Miss you Calvie.
