My Life in Photos

It's May! Happy Free Comic Book Day! Unfortunately, I didn't get to go out today to pick up some free comics since I worked all day. May does have a lot of of fun things coming up during the month. But I'd like to see a bit more 'Spring' this month. I was teased with Spring this past week.

We headed to New York City this past Monday for a few days. And let me tell you, Spring is in full force there! But I'll get to that trip in another post. The rest of April was a great month. We celebrated Easter, Adam's birthday, and we had company up for a weekend.

We saw A LOT of snow this past month. Things started to melt and then we got another snow storm about half way through the month. It did look pretty but it covered up all the bare grass.

On one of the warmer days, me and Adam had a date day... we headed downtown to check out Comics North and the candy store that carries imported treats and some things I've never seen before, like this soda pop.

Afterwards was dinner at a burger joint we hadn't tried yet and then we saw Captain America 2.

Adam's birthday fell on Easter this year so I made dinner and cake (berries and coconut as per his request) on Good Friday. And then on Easter Sunday we hung out and ate hot cross buns and drank coffee until he had to head off to work. It was a lovely weekend. 

Yes, I have a plush Peep...

And as usual, the cats were adorable and curious. Logan desperately wanted this giraffe that Emma had sent me.

How was April 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…
