Weekly Adventures

The past week has been pretty busy for us. After celebrating Valentine's Day last Friday, I spent Saturday at work, doing some errands, promoting IGGPPC, and packing for a quick Hamilton visit.

Round 11 of the International Geek Girl Pen Pals Club opened on Saturday. Registration is still open and you can sign up here. There's a giveaway happening on our Facebook page right now as well.

Then really early Sunday morning we headed off for Hamilton. It was a nice drive. The sun was out and being a Sunday, the traffic was light. We spent the afternoon at our niece's third birthday party, then I had a dinner of frozen yogurt with two of my best friends for one of their birthdays. Afterwards we drank Italian Soda and played Big Bang Theory Clue.

We finished off our day with a few games of bowling with some family members. It was a long day but bowling was super fun. I started off strong and got worse as the games continued. I guess my tiredness was catching up with me.

Monday morning we headed home after breakfast with my Mom and a quick visit at my sister-in-law's. Again, it was a gorgeous day. The sun was out, traffic was light, and we stopped for a treat at Tim Horton's. We picked up coffee and doughnuts and admired all the snowmobiles hanging out in the parking lot and the brand new ones that one of the stores was selling.

These pictures are blurry since we were driving on the highway, but the ice on the rocks was just crazy to see.

Since getting home I've been taking care of some chores and working on more comic convention prep. I'll be spending my evening working on pillowcases.

How has your week been?

My Favourite Baby Must-Haves

Having my first child has been eye-opening. I've learnt so much and made so many mistakes. It becomes a guessing game of what your child needs at times. You want to be 'perfect' but the reality is we're all just winging it and doing the best we can. Sometimes that means spending hours on Google, texting every 'mom' friend you have, or on hold with poison control because your baby licked eczema cream off your finger when you were putting it on her cheeks (or trying to).

With Christmas around the corner, I thought I'd share the top baby items that have saved us over and over again. They would be perfect gift ideas for new parents-to-be or stocking stuffers for infants.

1. Swaddle blankets - even if your child doesn't like to be swaddled these blankets are amazing. They're extra large and made from a breathable cotton. They were perfect for the spring and summer to bring with us on walks. If there was a cool breeze, too much sun, or Emma was upset, hav…

New Mom Must-Haves

It's been just over 9 months since Emma entered this world. It's been crazy. So many ups and downs. But I wouldn't trade this experience in for anything. She's amazing. It's definitely a learning experience and I wouldn't have gotten through the last 9 months without the support I've had. My family and friends have been welcome resources to help me in this new chapter of my life.

Emma has been a great baby - she sleeps well, she eats well, she's overall content and happy. We haven't experienced many problems. But that doesn't mean every day has been easy. Some days I don't get the chance to shower between Emma, chores, and just trying to eat; other days, naps are on schedule, feedings run smooth, and I have the opportunity to not only shower, but write up a blog post or bake cookies.

Since it's the time of year when people are out buying gifts, I thought I'd share the top must-haves I've needed over the last 9 months. They would …

New Beginning

It's a new year which always feels like a new beginning to me; a fresh start. I've never been one to hold myself all that accountable for new year resolutions. I wrote down a few goals I'd like to work on this year, but honestly, the only things that matter to me this year are making memories and doing what makes me happy.

We have some fun plans this year, some set in stone and others that we need to finalize. Emma will be walking this year and she's already proved 2019 to be interesting since she's now crawling and trying to stand up. I can only imagine how many new adventures we'll encounter this year with her.

I've also found new inspiration in my creative life - artists, creators, crafts, fabric. So many things have sparked new motivation in me. I haven't felt that in a while to be honest. It's nice. It's nice to feel these things again which make me want to spend time in my craft room or sit at my laptop and write .

My first step in my newf…
