Just an update

Our little guy is definitely busy and active. I feel him every morning, evening and sometimes in the afternoon. I guess unborn children do not need sleep :-) For the first time in like forever I slept perfectly on Sunday and Monday, I must figure out what was different.

Geoff started working on the nursery on Sunday I am hopping he can get all the painting done. the next step after that will be the floor will most likely that 2 weeks. Calling all help :-) If anyone wants to donate there time let us know we would appreciate it.

Last weekend I got a bunch of cute little clothes for baby and a few toys at this great baby bazaar that is held by the Toronto Association of Multiple Births. I also got this cutest Calvin Klein outfit, little jeans, a one-zee and a hoodie. I also checked out the Value Village in our Area and Kim and Danielle are right there are lost of great buys there. I also made my way to the Blinds to go to start looking at a blind for the nursery I think we are going to get a fabric roller shade that has a black out material pasted on the back, once Geoff is done with the painting we will go look a them together.

Well Happy Halloween - So how much candy is an unborn baby aloud to have?

hello from inside

I have tones to share as I have not written in over 2 weeks. My parent were in town for 2 weeks and a bit so we were pretty busy and when we were not we spent some family time or just vegged in front of the TV. My dad (love him to death) spent most of his time working on my house, always making sure to talk to me fist to ensure that nothing he was doing was bad for baby. On the house front for those of you who have seen our house you will not recognize the front half, paint has gone up, some mouldings, some carpet has been removed.... It's now up to Geoff to do the floor and finish the rest of the mouldings. The living room feels so much bigger now and I have lights in there. Yeah for lights. I can't wait to spend evenings rocking our son in our new glider in our new living room.

Yes that is what I said our son. It's was confirmed on October 22nd that we are having a boy. Time to shop :-) My mom calls him his little wiseman (ha ha) I think she may drive both him and me crazy with that and Geoff can probably relate. For some strange reason from day one I called baby a he, it's like you know what is inside you it's very strange.

Other then the house we have been out shopping started to by all sorts of sweet little outfits and toys (mostly gifts from memere) However I found these great little pjs that say cranky on the front and on the but an could not resist.

Other interesting news is that I am turning into an absent minded crazy person to say the least. Every time I try to open a door I drop my keys. I probably forget to do something somewhat important everyday at work (need to write everything down), and I succeeded to be involved in 2 collisions in less then a month (baby and me are fine as they were both at sub 10 speed). The first one was with a parked car and the second one not as forgiving to my car was while changing lanes in front of a parked transport truck that decided to move forward into me. So I guess I am no longer aloud to drive at speeds slower the 40 and then everything will be fine.

about 2 weeks ago a milestone in our sons life happened I started feeling him move. At first I was not sure what it was and I could only feel him when I was sitting or right after meals it felt like he was tickling me from the inside right behind my belly button. i immediately had to itch my belly it was quite annoying yet pleasant because i knew it was him. After about a week I started feeling it much more often and the feeling changed it was more like a small firework because it was a sharp point with tingling all around it almost like a singular pin from having pins and needles in your leg because it feel asleep. I now feel him everyday many times almost every-time I am sitting still or lying down. Another feeling of almost a round pressure has been added sometimes when I lye down which makes me think that this is him turning maybe his back against me. Geoff is always asking baby to move a lot as he wants to feel him to but not yet he needs to grow a little more first.

I will let Geoff write about the (oh there goes baby I can feel him wiggle around) ultrasound as he was able to watch the full 1 hour and I only got a 15 minute tour at the end.

That is it for now my son and I say by by.
