Week 27: 90 days or so to go....






Helen came for a visit from London! It was a nice surprise to see her again.


Last Friday Helen and Sarah came for a sleepover. Sarah made us both feel old by not knowing the movie 'Ferris Bueller's Day Off'. But then she redeemed herself by making buttermilk pancakes in the morning. Yum! I had them with vanilla ice cream and real maple syrup and they were amazing!


Allan, Helen and I took a road trip to Niagara Falls on Saturday. We stayed at Doubletree, which was bling-bling. They had a really nice gym and a wonderful pool. It felt so refreshing floating on my back and doing laps. I felt like a star fish.


Then on Sunday we went to an outlet mall in Buffaloo to do some shopping. I was all hyped up because they had a Mother Maternity Factory Outlet store there...or at least they did! They closed that location a week or so before got there. :~( It was rather tragic but Helen bought me a slushie and then it was okay.






In baby news: I'm two-thirds of the way to the end and now in the third trimester. The baby is about two pounds now and around 37 cm. I can feel Logan moving around a lot now.

Pretzel Cravings

I pressed snooze this morning and as I laid in bed I look over to my left. Where the bookcase use to be there was a pretzel store and two guys making fresh pretzels!
I nudged Allan and said 'Al, I think I must be dreaming. There's a pretzel store our our bedroom!'
He replied 'Nope, we're both awake.'
The pretzels looked buttery and salty and I felt it was too good to be true. 'Are you sure, Allan?'
'Yup, we're definately awake -I just pinched myself'
OMG!!! Feeling like the luckest pregnant woman ever, I reatched over from the comfort of my bed to grab a warm pretzel...and my alarm went off. :(

But having the wonderful husband that I do, he took me to get real ones on the way home from work today. :)

Logan's Kicking

Logan's kicks have been getting alot stronger lately -more distinct and less like 'bubbles'. Allan was able to feel him move for the first time on Saturday!


Our house is also coming along. The foundation has been poured...


We have a massive backyard!

A Busy Baby Weekend

A great weekend for us! We went to the Mom to Mom Green Baby show. I found it really interesting and learned a lot -did you know they make material out of bamboo? And despite what family and friends have said I'm still interested in cloth diapers -maybe not 100% but I think it could be an option to use at home. It's something that I'm going to investigate further.
This show was a warm up for Allan and I since next weekend is the 'big' baby show downtown.



We also visited Lori and Jason's new addition Evan. Sooooo cute! Jason also gave us a very graphic play-by-play of what to expect. They had their baby at the hospital we will be at, so we also got the gossip on the nurses -we got a full description of the one nurse to avoid but overall they thought everyone there was wonderful.


Our house is coming along -finally! If things went as planned we would have moved in this September. Last news we got is that it would now be ready June 2008. However in the last few weeks things seem to be on a role. The foundation for the garage is in now and it looks like the house foundation might be poured in the next week.



On Sunday Vicki, Mom and I went to the Johnston and Johnston and the Procter and Gamble warehouse sales. It was worth the long line ups and got lots of goodies for the baby.

Logan gets his first blog!


Allan and I are starting a little blog for the newest member to the family so that our friends and family out of town can get their weekly updates...
We're at 23 weeks now. He's about 11 inches long and around a pound. Logan is moving around a lot more now but dad has yet to feel him. He can hear too! Daddy is talking to him about basketball and playing him music. We've also got the 'Baby Plus' system going on the tummy twice a day since 18 weeks -Logan's on lesson 5 now(http://www.babyplus.com/).
And I'm happy to report that I'm not in too much discomfort. None of my shoes fit and I get growing cramps in my side and sometimes in my legs but nothing too bad.
