Things I've learned

-There are as many child rearing philosophies as there are children. Do what works for you and screw everyone else's 'opinion'.

-Dark furniture + baby powder = WAYYYY too much dusting! Next child is getting light furniture!

-The little ruffles on disposable diapers? They are actually necessary. Make sure they are out or the poo may escape. Blech!

-Formula burps are smelly.

-It IS possible to forget to eat.

Even she loves Rasputin!

When we're in the vehicle and Kirra gets fussy what do we do? Throw on Boney M 'Rasputin', crank the volume and enjoy the 'silence'.

Is that better than singing 'Baby got back' to make your baby smile?

Moments in motherhood

Deciding between changing your daughter's poopy diaper now, or after you feed her. If you feed her first, she's happy and you try not to breathe through your nose. If you change her, she screams bloody murder the entire time leaving you with ringing in your ears.

Guess which one wins more often?

Such a good little munchkin!

Kirra had her first long overnight trip this past weekend, and she did soooo well! Dad was so proud of her :)

We drove down to Calgary, stayed with Daryn's brother and went to Isabelle's (Kirra's cousin) Dedication. Kirra slept all night, didn't fuss much during the service and was a happy girl at the restaurant afterwards.

And she slept both ways in the car. Way to go Kirra! *heart*

Things I missed while pregnant

Hot baths.

Hot baths.

Like nearly-scalding-your-skin, turn-you-into-a-lobster, hot-DAMN-does-that-feel-good hot.

Don't even get me started on the 6 week post-partum bath ban....

Smiles make it all worth while

I hated being pregnant. I know many people who enjoyed the experience and say they miss being pregnant, but not me. I was sick for 7 out of the 9 months, exhausted ALL THE TIME and by the end I was a huge uncomfortable blob that couldn't wait to be done with the whole process.


I knew it would be worth it in the end, that I would have my beautiful baby in my arms. And now I'm getting face-lighting smiles that just melt my frozen little heart and remind me why I did it once and why I'll do it again.

I mean, how can you look at this face and NOT feel better? I find it physically impossible to not smile when looking at my munchkin smiling
