baby no. 2

... looks like this. Cute nose and a good-looking spine.

We're at 22 weeks, 2 days. Due date: October 2, 2010. So if you're looking for me on October 2, I will be busy, giving birth. I marked it in my day planner already.

garden gnome

Joe helped me out on Sunday with some gardening. Mostly the watering part. That's his favourite part.

dandelion fluff

... is funny.


Joseph loves his strawberries... "babbies." A lot. To the point of refusing brownies in favour of strawberries. Crazy.

why I love my zoom lens

And of course, we went to Shaunavon for all the other people, too, having fun playdates with Papa, Mammie, Becca, Kaycee, Ireland, Auntie Chelle, Uncle Al, all the cows, Uncles Jason, Auntie Paige, and Great-Mamma. Here's what the fun looked like:

my early mother's day

... was today! Joseph (and Daddy) surprised me with a super-duper surprise... a brand new Nikon. A big fancy one with a zoom lens. So we went outside to try it out... here's Joe posing.


Thank you, Joseph, for a super Mommy Day!

a public service announcement for other moms who are probably smart enough to figure this one out even before trying...

A 16-month-old is too young to finger paint with fabric paint. It does not come off easily. So we're putting off crafting in this house for another few years.
