9 Months Old

This month was so special because it was our babies first Christmas! It was so much fun he loved to open presents but didn’t like santa one bit! He got a walking toy for christmas and loves to push it and walk around. He has his first New Years Eve party but was feeling very sick that night. He ended up having croup and we took him to the walk in clinic at the hospital. He is just starting to feel better now, thank goodness!

Me and my girls

Sometimes you meet a person and you just click. You’re comfortable with them, like you’ve known them your whole life, and you don’t have to pretend to be anyone or anything.

These girls know me. Girls who I can be my true self around. They know my faults. They know my strengths. And they have loved me for it. The good, the bad and the ugly. These 6 girls have loved me through it all.

Trailer Update 2

YOU GUYS!!! We have gotten so much done on our trailer and it’s looking awesome! Last post I wrote “I still have to sew new curtains, flooring, paint all the green, hang up a mirror/pictures, paint the outside, put the cupboards back on, and find some cute throw pillows!”

Sew curtains- DONE

Flooring/pictures- trying to find stuff we like

Paint the outside- we have it sanded now we just have to paint it

Paint all the green- DONE

Put the cupboards back on- DONE

Throw pillows- DONE

Oh, I still have to put the furnace cover on too.

Here are some photos of it without the curtains hung up yet! I painted all of the green a light purple. The table has been taken off to paint and lay the flooring. IMG_3795IMG_3794

Trailer Update!

The trailer has been such a fun project for me this summer! Here are the things that I have fixed up on it so far.

Everything is painted white so far except for the green around the fridge and heater. I am still trying to decide what colour I should go with for that!

One Month Old!

Yesterday marked a month since Hendrix has been in our lives. I never realized how hard it would be for me to see my baby growing this fast. A month goes by so fast and our little boy has changed to much already. He is holding his head up very well, everyone can’t believe how strong and sturdy he is. At his two week appointment he was 8 pounds 14 ounces so he is getting bigger, but not out of newborn clothing yet! We are so blessed with how he sleeps at night, usually 5 hour stints!

As much as I am excited for the future, I wish I could press pause on life right now. I want to cherish these cuddly moments with my son. These days have been the best days of my life so far.

These photos are some of the ones I have taken of his life so far. April222 copy April224 copy April227 copy April235 copy April241 copy April245 copy

One of my good friends daughters Rowyn and Hendrix! Rowyn was born two days before Hendrix. IMG_1228IMG_1219IMG_1215IMG_1206IMG_1197

He grabbed onto his owl all by himself, Steve was so proud of him. Funny how these little things bring such joy.


His face while getting burped always looks so concerned. 

Tough life!

And she loved a little boy very, very much – even more than she loved herself.
