My Life in Photos

Tomorrow is July 1st, which is Canada Day here. I'm hoping the rain will hold off tomorrow evening so we can go see some fireworks. It does blow my mind that June is over though. It was a jam-packed month, which looks to be the trend for the Summer.

My Mom and cousin came up to visit for a couple days earlier this month. Since Mary hadn't seen the Big Nickel yet, we went to check it out. It was a gorgeous day to be out so it was perfect.

As you can see, we're both big dorks! 

Before they came up to visit, I whipped up a batch of classic peanut butter cookies. For whatever reason, this batch turned out perfect! The cookies were delicious.

Hot weather = Ice cream!

I'm still reading lots and lots of X-Men comics, but I've also started Ms Marvel and Lumberjanes this month. Both of which I LOVE!

I also picked up the first two issues of izombie when I was last at the comic book store.

The hot weather has made the kitties extra lazy. Actually, let's be honest, everything makes the cats lazy. The biggest difference is where they decide to be lazy. In the heat, they've been spending most of their days on top of the cool sheets on the bed. 

Was June a good month for you? I'm pretty excited for July.... my birthday is in less than two weeks and we get the keys to our house at the end of the month!

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…
