big boy!

My baby's not a baby anymore... On sunday we transferred him to a big boy bed. He is now officially in a single bed. He cried a little on the first night, i laid down with him for a few minutes and then he told me to close the door and go downstairs. He didn't even get out of bed. Last night there was no crying but i still had to lay down with him for 5 min. I think it'll take a week or two before he feels really comfortable and secure, but all in all i think the transition will be smooth.

what a week-end...

Oh boy! what a week-end, i can't say we did a whole lot but i just found it extreamly tiring. Or maybe it's the weather, all i can say is that today i feel like i could start crying at any moment, my patience is very short. Brady's cold got a lot worse during the week-end, his nose started running like a leaky faucet, and of course he doesn't "blow" his nose. So i'm always fighting with him to wipe it or succion it. This has been going on for a whole month now. I've been dealing with my cold for 1 1/2 month, it's really tough this year! To top it all off Dave (my husband) is gone to Vancouver until Thursday night.
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...

big day

Today was a big day, it was my baby's 2nd birthday party, although he'll only be 2 on monday. I made a Blue's cake with a template i found on the nick jr website. It uses a 9x13 rectangle and a 8 in circle cake. I think it turned out pretty good. check it out.

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.

i've been sick with a really bad cold for the past 3 weeks. The worst part of it is that i can't take anything. Brady is sick too with the same thing, we're going at the same rate. Runny and stuffy nose is almost done but we're coughing like crazy. Now this week-end Dave started getting sick too. I hope it goes away soon.

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.

Good Night

27 weeks

Oh boy i'm not a good blogger! I haven't written anything in months. Well i started working at Sandoz, a pharmaceutical company, as a junior purchasing agent. I'm mostly do the tracking of orders and stuff the others don't want to do. It's only a temporary position...obviously.

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.
