My Life in Photos

February is a short month to begin with, but with prepping for my first comic convention of the year, the month went by so quickly! I won't lie, February was a fun month but I'm looking forward to Spring. I'm hoping we see some semi-nicer days this month. So far, it's been freezing again but Mother Nature has 19 days to get her stuff together for Spring!

Through IGGPPC, we organized a Valentine swap last month and it was so much fun getting them in the mail! They brightened my day!

And after falling in love with all the Valentine products at Target, I picked up some discounted treats after Valentine's Day! The Vanilla Cupcake popcorn was so good!

I had a few more photos on my camera from our road trip to Hamilton a couple weeks ago. I love driving back home and seeing the Canadian Shield and hilly landscape. It makes for a beautiful view.

Snow has definitely piled up here... There's a snow bank completely surrounding the Costco/Indigo plaza turning their parking lot into a snow fortress.

And then there's the snow bank outside of our building. It's officially taller than me...

I started watching Escaflowne last month. I'm about 10 episodes in and I'm really enjoying it so far.

A few days ago me and Adam went to our favourite second-hand store here and I found this game for $5. Did anyone else watch the Pucca episodes online years ago?

Seymore is currently fighting a cold and Logan has been sneezing more than normal today. I really hope he doesn't get as bad as Seymore. My poor kitties. I think they need some fresh, Spring air too.

It's been decided, I'm starting up a superhero team with Emily!

How was February for you?

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…
