We went to Jasper on saturday, so the boys could snowboard. Chelsea and I shopped around the town, and went for a nice walk around the lake, and of course took photos of my outfit. I have found it a little more difficult dressing with a belly. Lots of things I think will look cute I put on and immediately take it off because I feel like it looks funny! This dress is SO stretchy it makes it easy and comfortable to wear while pregnant.
After we packed our hospital bag we got together everything we thought the baby would need and put it in the diaper bag!
I ordered our diaper bag from OIOI and I am absolutely in love with it! I love that it isn’t too patterned so I won’t get bored with it in a few months. I also love that it isn’t too feminine looking so when Steve has the baby it doesn’t look like he is carrying a purse around.
– I ordered this diaper clutch off Etsy. It is nice because its holds your diapers and wipes, and its also a change pad. You can keep everything in one and just pull out the clutch when the baby needs a diaper change.
– My good friend Melissa made me two amazing breastfeeding covers! They will be perfect for public feedings.
– Newborn slippers
– Honest diapers
– Aden and Anais bamboo swaddle blanket
– Scratch mitts
– Going home outfit
You may have noticed in the first photos on this post that we put the cradle in our room beside our bed. Here is a close up of it! It was Stevens when he was a baby!

Anyone think I am missing anything??
I am in LOVE with how our maternity photos turned out. One of my best friends Kaitlyne from GreenTee Photography took all the photos for us, and they couldn’t of turned out more perfect! The next photos she will take of us will include our baby boy!
Even though it snowed here in Edmonton today I am being optimistic in thinking spring is around the corner. I made this fabric banner last year some time and didn’t have any idea of where I was going to put it in my home. I made it all neutrals so I could put it anywhere and have it work. It has been up over the old window in our kitchen for quite some time and I love it there, but everything was cream and neutrals. I went to fabric land and picked up some sheer turquoise fabric to add to it for a pop of color.
The banner is very easy to make. I got fabric in the colors I liked, cut it into strips with fabric scissors, and knot them over some twine.
I love the little change! The best part of it all is when I get tired of the bright color I can just take them off! Sometimes it is lots of work being someone who needs change in their life often!
