This one i took when Brady got up from his nap.

Soon i'll post a recent picture of myself and my belly.
I've been tired lately, for the past few days i've been naping in the afternoon when Brady goes down. I wanna scrapbook but i feel like i've got no inspiration, i don't have any really good pictures of Brady (which is usually my main subject for my pages) he just moves around too much OR he wants to be behind the camera taking the picture so that doesn't work well either. I have some pictures of Cuba (and really nice papers) and of Paris/Barcelona trip that i should scrap, but i jusst don't know how to get started. I'll have to get my friend Josee to come visit one day and help me out (travel pages were her specialty until her daughter arrived)
Now's the perfect time for scrapping since it's all re-runs of my shows on TV. Too bad i don't feel the energy. :-(

On friday my husband came down with the gastro. Since 1am last night, i've had it as well, up until 8am this morning i couldn't even hold down a sip of water. All i can say is i can't wait for Brady to go down for his nap (...in 45 min) so the i can get my ass back in bed, Oh and in case you're wondering, my husband started having diarhea again during the night, he got up with B this morning, went out and got me some Gatorade when i was able to keep down some liquid and he went back to bed about 1 hour ago.
So with all that, i'd like to wish you all a Merry X-Mas and a Happy New Year!

Yesterday was fun and relaxing. I went to visit my friend Josee (JosieSensi) another scrapbooker. I had lots of fun, we had lunch and i finally met in person her 2 month old daughter Maeva, that is sooooo cute and adorable. We chit-chatted all day and it was nice not to be running around. We'll definetly have to do that again.
Today i went to Tyco to have lunch with Danielle. It's nice seeing the people that are still working there. I also went to Fairview to pick up my husband's Kernal BBQ popcorn. I tell you he's spoiled. I go all the was across the island every x-mas to get him some. (there's no Kernels on the south shore) And of course i stopped by Scrapbook Centrale (double stamp day!!!) Well i needed some rub-on monograms to finish up the book i did for Brady's educatrice. It's finally finished and i hope she'll like it. Later tonight i'll scan it and post the pictures.

On another note, Dave has been gone to Winnipeg again this week (he wasn't supposed to be gone, but problems arrised that could lose them the contract so he had to go). Since he was supposed to be home all week i had booked my nail appointment on monday and my hairdresser appointment on wednesday. Well thank heavens my dad lives nearby and that he was on vacation this week, he was able to come bb-sit Brady. Tonight we're gonna go have supper at his new apartment and this week-end he's bb-sitting Brady because we have Dave's x-mas party in Tremblant and we're sleeping there on Saturday.....yeah!!! i'll get to sleep in on Sunday morning!
I went festive for my coloring, i got my regular blond highlights and i added some Fushia...I just love it, but unfortunetly it doesn't last very long.
Oh yeah and we have a virus in our computer at home! Trojan virus! Last time that happened we had to reformat the whole hardrive and i was out of a computer for almost a month! That can't happened i won't be working anymore, how will i keep in contact with people!!!!

Other good news is that i'm starting my last week of work on monday. After that maternity leave, i can't wait. I need to rest up before this bb gets here AND I need to start getting things ready for him/her. Wash all the little pj's from Brady that are in a box and arrange the dresser. At this point in time for Brady everything was done by the time i was 7 months pregnant. Now i'm at 35 weeks (8 1/2 months) and nothing is done. That's stressing me out a little.
One thing at a time....

Dave was already uneasy about leaving for another trip this week, this will make him feel even worst, but there's nothing he could've done about it, i probably would've fallen anyways.
So far the only consequence to this whole thing is a MEGA bruise on the side of my left thigh. I think i fell on my left bum cheek and then on the side of my left thigh. It happened so fast, next thing i knew i was at the bottom of the stairs looking up at Brady.
I'm just glad there's nothing wrong.
Keep you posted

So we went to quebec city for the annual halloween party at Emilie's house (dave's daughter). Since i'm pregnant i didn't know what to dress up as so i used my makeup artist talents to paint my belly into a pumpkin. Dave just put on one of my dresses. He'll kill me if he knew i posted this picture... :-) and Brady didn't want to keep his costume on at the party but he did wear it to go trick or treating.

The way that were sitting, my back is to the entrance of the restaurant, but there are mirrors in front of me, all of a sudden i see my sister behind me! then my mom next to her!
My husband, the sweetheart that he is had flown in my sister from Saskatoon, SK and my mom from Fredericton, NB. And guess who picked them up at the aeroport? My dad. so it really was a family supper for my b-day.

I'll be back soon with an updated pregnancy picture and a few pictures of my son at halloween and some other ones we took at trampoline this week-end. He absolutly loves the trampoline and i got some good pics for a page i'll have to work on at the crop on Nov 18th.

I think i might work through my lunch and take Brady to the clinic, just so that i can be told (again) that it's only a cold and there's nothing we can do but wait it out!
I think i'll go to bed really early tonight, like 8h30 or so...
That should do me some good.
ok enough ranting for today, this is not very constructive...

I did this page about myself for a contest on the Scrapbook Centrale website, i really don't think i have a chance of winning 'cause there are some really nice layouts, but at least i participated. I think this is the first time i actually make a LO specifically for something. I usually don't take the time. I love theses papers, they're Rouge the Garance papers, and it's so nice i didn't want to put too many things on the page and take away from the beauty of the paper. So my LO is very simple, I wrote down 6 things about that i know to be true.
1. I'm a TV-aholic
2. I love Starbucks
3. I'm a procrastinator (that explains why i don't get that many pages done)
4. I love to bake
5. I'm unorganized
6. I love my family
On the pregnancy front, i feel good, the bb is moving alot more than before. I was being paranoid about it at first when i thought it wasn't moving very much, then again Brady moved ALOT!!! I feel more pressure in my stomach through out the day than i did with Brady, then again, i've got a 2 year old at home that likes to be picked up and likes to play rough. I think it's just more fatigue than the first time around, my doctor didn't seem worried yesterday at my appointement. My next appt is in a month, after that it'll be every 2 wks. Boy time flies, before you know it i'll be off work (i can't wait!) and it'll be X-mas, New Years then the arrival of the new baby.
I can't beleive i've got nothing done yet, the room isn't primed (i want to wait after it's born to paint with color, depending on the sexe the decor will be different) and at 35 wks i want to mold my belly like i did with Brady (that makes a really nice souvenir) here's a picture of it.
I painted it to resemble leather, and it's in the colors of his room. I find this is one of the best things i did as a souvenir of my first pregnancy. Love it!
Anyways, it's late and i should really get to bed. Tomorrow i'm going to a crop with my friend Michelle so i'l be going to bed late and on sat morning we've got Brady's 1st swim class at 8am. So it'll be up early. I think i'll take a nap at the same time as him...

Also last week-end i finally took my first pregnant pictures at 27 weeks. here they are.
Anyways i'd have more pictures to show but my previous download didn't work so i don't want to do this for a third time. Maybe next time i'll add other pictures.

We had such a beautiful thanksgiving week-end; nice, warm and sunny. Yesterday, after Brady's nap we went to St-Bruno and walked in the mountain, it was really nice. Brady enjoyed himself, he was running up the path picking up rocks and leaves. We walked around 3 km, i think maybe we should've turned around a little sooner because towards the end i was getting more and more false contractions. I should be more careful. As soon as Dave finds me the right cable to download the pictures we took i'll post them. I also have a couple of pregnancy pics.

On the preggie side of things, everything is going extreamly well. I'm now at 27 weeks along and no problems. I have been getting Braxton-Hicks contractions, but i had thoses with Brady starting at 5 months. I am more tired than the first time around, probably because i can hardly ever rest, this is a time of the year where my husband travels alot and Brady is very active and likes to be picked-up. It breaks my heart when i have to tell him that i'm NOT gonna carry him up or down the stairs, to walk up himself (it's not that he can't, he just wants me to carry him) Then he starts crying and fussing, but i have to hold my end because he's 30 lbs, and that's getting kinda heavy to carry upstairs + the baby weight + my own weight. I get upstairs and i'm out of breath.
I have a doctor's appt on the 18th, nothing should be different. I should get the results from my glucose test i did yesterday though.
Saturday (the 14th) we're have Brady's b-day party (his b-day on the 16th but that's a monday...) It's a Blue's Clues theme, 'cause he's a huge fan!
Well it's past 11 pm and i should get my ass to bed 'cause God knows Brady won't sleep in later that 6h30 am (if i'm lucky...) I put him to bed later than usual tonight 'cause we waited for Daddy to get home from Halifax....but i'm sure he's not gonna sleep any later tomorrow morning, and since i usually get up on Saturday's than i should probably get some sleep.

Well i've got to get going, i'm going to get the second prenatal blood test done this afternoon. Hopefully this time the girl can stick me on the first try (she stuck me 3 times before drawing blood last time)
Geez...i've never been fired from a job in my life and then all of a sudden, twice in 4 months.

Everything looked good. And we finally saw the baby and the heart was beating fine, so i know everything is ok. The baby is smaller than expected and maybe it's because my cycle is longer than the typical 28 days, so the baby is about 11.6 wks instead of 12.2 I don't care as long as he/she is healthy. We leave tomorrow for Europe (3 days in Paris and 3 days in Barcelona) Should be really nice, i'll let you know when we come back. Also i will scan the pics of the ultrasound and post them.
Talk to you all when i get back!
Thursday, June 15, 2006
I can't wait...I'll let you know how it went and i'll post the pics of the ultrasound when we come back from vacation. :-)

Ok, so i have my first appointment on the 14th and be my calculations, they'll have to do the fetal translucency to determine chances of downs syndrome, either the week leaving or the week coming back from Europe. i'll let you guys know more when i know.

Now I'm waiting for a call from one of the agencies i'm with about a job i applied on. hopefully i'll get an interview.
On the upside, i've had time to paint the office and takeover half of it to make myself a scrapbook space... That's really great. Once it's s completly done i'll post some pictures.
gotta go do some cleaning.
Thursday, April 20, 2006
Keep your fingers crossed for me, i know i am (including my toes and anything else i can cross)
Wednesday, April 19, 2006
Don't worry, i'm not dead. I've been a little busy lately. I can't tell you exactly what i've been doing ('cause i don't really know) well since i have a little time on my hands i decided to repaint the office ('cause i'll be making a scrapbook space for me in there) and after that i'll paint the bedroom. I should probably be using all this free time for finding another job, but i'm also enjoying this time at home. I did make a new LO two weeks ago and i'm really proud of it. I used this really cool paper from Basic Grey, and i made a funky little book with the pictures and the journaling.
