Ok so i did it! While Brady was sleeping, my husband was out with his daughter skating, so i took out my tripod and played with the digital camera. So i had fun doing a whole bunch of self-portraits of my pregnancy, and i'm having alot of fun tweeking them with Picasa (very simple program to use) here are just a few that i had time to touch up.

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

latest update

Well, I had my doctor's appointment this afternoon and i'm happy to say that things are pregressing well. I am now 2cm dilated and still 50% effaced. My next appointment is next friday the 5th (1 day before my due date) I don't forsee any problems until then, but i think the baby is getting a little anxious. It has been doing gymnastics in my belly since last night, so who knows maybe i'll be a little early. At least x-mas is past. I've gained 22 lbs so far and even though i got the gastro 5 days ago, i still gained 1 lbs this week. Oh well! Let's say it's water retention... i am starting to notice that my hands and feet are a little more puffy than usual. I have to harasse my husband tonight for him to take a picture of my BIG belly, we missed 2 pics already and i'm not too happy about that! The other option is that i try and take it myself with the timer on the camera and my camera stand. Maybe i'll try that tomorrow.

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. :-(

This will be a short post. on friday i had my appointment at the doctor's i'm still 1cm dilated and 50% effaced, sounds good to me!

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 ( 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!

icicle boxes

I found this icicle box template on a forum and i absolutly fell in love with it. So much so that i made 14 of them in a very short period of time. I put Lindt chocolates in them and my husband will give them to his office employees

pics of daycare book

ok so here are the pics of the book i made for the Brady's daycare worker.

it's almost x-mas!!!

Well it's almost X-mas and i had told myself that i'd try and rest after i stopped work. That kinda hasn't happened yet. I've been baking cookies, pies and tourtieres. I've been scrapbooking a little (which is more than usual) and of course i've been finishing up my x-mas shopping.

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.

my kid

Here are a few pics of Brady. The first ones are of him decorating a gingerbread cookie and the other is of him watching his favorite movie (for the time being) CARS

You know, he didn't even budge when i took the pictures (2 of them)

just the 2 of us

Yesterday was a nice day. My husband had the day off, so we brought Brady to daycare, went out to breafast and caught a movie (Casino Royale, very good btw) It was really nice to spend some time with him outside the house, especially since he'd been travelling so much in the past months.

no luck

Well no luck on the shut eye thing, i didn't get back to sleep until 3 or 3h30 am. Hopefully this won't become a regular thing.

I think i'll try to take a nap today

NOT again....

Oh boy, I hope tonight's a fluke and this won't become regular. It's 1 in the morning and i'm up with heartburn. With Brady's pregnancy this is something that happened on an almost daily basis during the last 2 months. Hopefully this is only because i ate 2 toast right before bed.

little virus update, my husband fixed it really quick this time. He figured since i'd be home i'd probably want to use the man.

I'll soon post some pregnancy don't despair.

off i go to try and get some shut eye....night night!

pregnancy update

I had my latest doctor's appointment yesterday, and good news everything is fine. I'm at 35 1/2 weeks and I'm 1cm dialated and effaced at 50%.....don't panic! The same thing happened with my first pregnancy, i was like that for 4 weeks.

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!!!!

Oh Christmas tree...

finally, it's the first week-end of December. The time that i put up my x-mas tree and decorations. It took me all afternoon, but they're up. Only the outside balcony is left, it was just too cold to do that today. Maybe tomorrow?

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....
