Apparently some nasty bots found it way into my hosting environment and left a path of destruction. I’ve removed most of the offending pieces from the site, but have been forced to update and probably have lost some stuff.

Sorry about that, such is life.

The Weekend to End Women's Cancers 2010

Walking for mom

Hello everyone, I just wanted to thank everyone for supporting my 2009 Walk to End Cancer. I have decided that because the walk didn’t go quite as planned that I am going to try again. I now know that drinking just water is not good enough and gatorade is now my best friend. I have created my personal page on the 2010 Calgary walk to end cancer.

My goal this year is to get my community involved and look for teammates and sponsors. It all starts now and in 11 months, I will be walking again. Thank you for everyones support. I couldn’t have done this without you.


He is almost six months…

LucasWell I said I wasn’t going to start cereals until he was six months but I went to a feeding your baby info session and found I can start now. So we started cereal last week with great success. Lucas sits in his Bumbo on the counter and makes a nice little mess of his face and bib. We tried the beef and broth baby food and he absolutely hated it. “What is this horrible stuff you have put in my mouth… Yuck!” So we are back to basic rice cereal which he loves. He has also started some new sounds… ma ma ma, br br br, na na na, hi , ah wa, his sontic sream and many more. He can also roll over from front to back and back to front.  He still loves his Jolly Jumper and can jump for over an hour at a time. Keep checking the pics and we will try to take as many videos and pics as possible.

Almost four months…

Well Lucas is doing very well. He weighed 13.7 lbs at our three month visit and is a little over 24 in long. He is smiling and cooing and comes up with a new sound every 2 weeks. This week it is the dolphin squak and last week it was brrr. (although he could have just been spitting at uslucas-070) He is still sleeping through the night with the odd slip up. All his newborn clothes do not fit him anymore and he fits the size 6 mon perfectly. We have lots of new picks of Christmas and stuff in the photo gallery, check back often as we’ll continue to upload pics.

Cara's ever growing tummy and other baby news

It is by popular demand that I post a picture of my ever growing belly. I find it to be a little bigger then what it should be, but are told that every pregnancy is different. I have not gained any weight and in fact have actually lost a few pounds. So maybe I was more fit then I thought I was.

Tummy Shot 2

I am feeling quite a bit better in the 2nd trimester then in the first. In the first, I felt nausea quite a bit but lucky for me, was never sick. Then the 2nd trimester hit and I got the stomach flu. Happy happy, Joy joy! Now that that is over with, I am feeling as normal as someone with a baby growing inside her would feel. Every once in a while I am dizzy, tired or just plain uncomfortable but all to be expected.

Next week will be our 18 week diagnostic ultrasound to ensure everything is going well and to find out the gender. Sam and I have also decided to partake in 3D/4D Ultrasounds, these will be taken at 20 weeks and 30 weeks. This way we get to see what our baby looks like before he or she enters the world. They will also confirm the gender of our baby to be. For those of you who have never seen 3D Ultrasounds… go to uc-baby.com and look at the gallery. The pictures there are amazing. I have spoken to a lot of mothers and fathers and all recommend the entertainment ultrasound. If you wish to be added to the live broadcasting of our 3D/4D Ultrasound, please comment back and we can add you to the list.

That is it for baby news… keep watching back for more pics and updates.

Happy Holidays!

This is my favorite time of year where we all get together and share the spirit of family and stuff… ok so I like getting lots of vacation and getting gifts but I really do love the spirit of Christmas time. Basil, Sam and I hope to be able to see all our extended family throughout the month of December. So watch for us on your doorsteps. This will also be Basil’s first Christmas… I really hope he likes the tree and lets us keep ours up… December 2nd will be the big day. (Lately he has decided that shredding paper is lots of fun… should make opening presents fun) Well that is all I can think of right now. Again hope to see all of you soon.

Merry Christmas & Seasons Greetings
