Valentine Day Presents!

I love ALL occasions. I'm sure you all know this about me already. I love to celebrate for the kids, and make it fun! Fun food, decor and maybe a few presents too!! I knew I would be busy with a new baby at the beginning of February so I ordered Adalyn and Wyatt's Valentines gifts this month! (Not knowing if Wyatt was a girl or boy of course!) I ordered everything from Etsy, except the books which I got off Amazon!

Here is a look at Wyatt's Valentine's Day Gifts:


1- I got this cute "love bug" car. I thought it was sweet. Also made in Canada which is a bonus!
2- I had to get a slouchy beanie for the new babe! I got black because it is gender neutral! Also made in Canada!
3- It was hard to find leg warmers that would work for a girl or a boy! I think these are the perfect fit though! These also came from Canada!
4- I had to get the baby a "First holiday book".  I got one for Adalyn each holiday and wrote a special message inside! Wyatt will get a book each holiday as well!
5- I also had to get this cute teether/rattle. Also made in Canada! I could have personalized it but didn't know if we were having a girl or boy so I stuck with "LOVE"

Here is what I got Adalyn:


1- I had to get Addy Pete the Cat Valentine's Day book! She loves Pete and we have like six already!
2- I totally could have made this button snake myself but didn't think I would have the time! I love the hearts. I think Adalyn will like it too!
3- I got Addy a cute little personalized bracelet! Aren't they sweet?!
4- I also got her an "I Spy" bag. I'm not sure if she will actually look for the items yet, but we will see!

I will also get her some little treat as can't NOT get chocolate on Valentine's Day!

Looking forward to showing you our decorations, crafts and baking we are planning on doing! I just love the holidays!!

Dear Baby,

Dear baby,

It's your Mommy here

I can't believe today is the day we go to the hospital to meet you! I have high blood pressure again so we are meeting you a little bit early. You will be 38 weeks. You were supposed to be a February baby, but now you will be a January baby. It is for our safety though! A lot has happened since your Dad and I found out we were having you. Some good things, some bad. You were definitely the best thing out of them all!

You have a two year old sister named Adalyn. She thinks there is a baby in her belly too! 

She is excited to meet you. She tells everyone she is a big sister. I think you will like her. She is smart and very funny. She will make you laugh, like she makes us laugh! We are ready to meet you too. I can't wait to hold you and cuddle you. I also can't wait to see if you are a girl or a boy. Adalyn guesses differently every day. She said if you are a girl we should name you "Girl". If you are a boy we should name you "Baby Liam" (Just like Ben's new baby brother) We have two names picked out, we will just have to wait and see! The last ultrasound I had said you were about 6 and a half pounds. We will also have to see if that is true!

I can't believe we will be meeting you today or tomorrow! I can't believe we will now be a family of four. I am so excited!

See you soon, sweet babe.

Love, Your Mommy!

A little update!

Wow, I haven't posted since August! AUGUST! So much has happened since then...I guess the big thing would be that.....We are expecting AGAIN! I actually found out in June but didn't want to say anything until I was further along! That is the main reason I haven't been blogging! I was just so tired and there was no time!

Here was our announcement:

My original due date was February 12th, then they changed it to February 4th and now I am being induced next week because my blood pressure is high it will be January 21st or 22nd. I'm guessing the 22nd. We are all very excited but also very nervous. We don't know if it is a boy or girl. Mike is leaning toward another girl, but I still don't know. I am 37 weeks this week:

We also bought a new house! After 8 years of renting we will finally be home owners! It is a new build so we get to choose everything! Floors, cabinets etc. It is also in town. I'm not sure how my husband is going to do with this, because he has lived in the country his whole life but he is doing it for Addy and I. It will be a big adjustment for all of us. Move in day is scheduled to be May 5th, but I'm sure they will be late. I am so excited about this!

Since I last posted Addy turned two, we celebrated all the holidays like all the others...decorated the playroom, did lots of crafts and had fun with sensory play! You know I love the holidays! Addy had her first hair cut, and I just turned thirty. I am kind of sad I haven't been documenting all of this! Hopefully I will have some time to start to blog again. I have no idea how...but I will see what I can do!

I am looking forward to meeting my new baby and also for Valentine's Day! We have already started decorating! I am excited this baby will be born with all of this occasions coming up! You know I like to take themed photos! And since I did it for Addy I have to do it for this baby too! 

Hoping it won't be another five months before I post again!!
