Family time

This weekend was definitely a relaxing, family filled weekend. Sometimes I kinda feel like this is the calm before the storm. Right now we only have a few weeks until the new baby arrives and I think Francis has successfully joined me in my nesting phase of my pregnancy. I didn't really get to go through this living at our old house on Langdon so naturally, living on our own for the first time drove me to want a clean house.

It's so surprising how different my pregnancies have been. This time around seems so much harder. Given yes I have a 14 month old to take care of but my body just feels like its about to just give up sometimes. I have sciatica, horrible heartburn and ache all over the place.

But regardless, when I look at Alana, all I can think of is how lucky I am to be having another one. People would die to be in my position and I don't take it for granted. A few years ago I thought I would have a hard time conceiving and so I understand the importance of what I have now.

For this weekend at least, I welcomed the quiet simple moments with my growing family.

So I don't like to post pics of my stretch-marked belly but this was adorable. She was kissing her little sister!!!

I know a lot has happened since my last entry but we've been so busy!!!! We recently got new jobs, moved into our new house, and are expecting another beautiful baby girl this Christmas/New years!!! So much to do and so little time.

But regardless life has blessed us with so much this year and I just can't wait for baby #2 to be the best Christmas gift we have ever received :) I have no idea what troubles a toddler and newborn are going to bring but I know the happiness will far outweigh anything that life throws at us. I promise to do my best at documenting it all.
