3 +1 = 4 & A Happy Birthday!


It's been a while since i've posted. Since then my little baby girl, Arianna Mai, made her appearance into our lives on Friday, August 13th at 2:07am. I wasn't expecting to have her so soon! But all day on the Thursday I was having contractions. After a full day of contractions (10 minutes apart) we luckily made it to the hospital at 2am. My water didn't break (but almost did on the doctor) and I started to push in the truck on the way to the hospital. LOL. ALMOST had her in the truck. With only 2 or 3 pushes, she popped out. A whopping 5lbs 13oz 18.5inch long. She is such a beauty. I can't believe she's in our lives. From 3 to 4. I feel have everything I need in life. She's completed it. And she's such a good baby! A little bit of a "pig" as per her pediatrician yesterday. As of yesterday, she's now 6lbs 7oz. LOL. She eats all the time! But we all love her to pieces! Ethan has grown fond of her and is always on the lookout for her.

Before I go, I want to wish my hubby, TOMMY, a HAPPY 31st BIRTHDAY! LOVE YOU HUN! xoxoxo

Just a day this summer...


Wow. It's been HOT & HUMID here! Like, it was +32C but with humidity it felt like +42C?!!!! Yup. That hot. I didn't want to leave my house at all because once you step outside, you feel like you can't breathe. BUT, I had to leave. Tommy's work truck broke down & we had to go pick him up at the dealership. Ugh. I had the A/C on full blast the whole time. Seriously. I'm NEVER getting pregnant again if i'll be due end of August.

Anyway, while we waited for his truck to be fixed we had a quick snack/late lunch at Smitty's. Afterwards, we headed over to Tommy's work to drop off some of his paperwork & pick up supplies for his truck. Well, Ethan & I spent a good 45 minutes just sitting in my truck. Not fun. To top it all off, Ethan is potty training so while waiting patiently for daddy, I hear the words "Mommy, I have to poo & pee!". Oh no! Well, the warehouse has no washroom & Tommy had to rush over to the dealership to pick up his truck (before they closed at 5pm -- it was 4:45pm AND rush hour!!). Yup. I kept saying to E, "just hold it in longer! We're almost there!". LOL. Well, we rush into the dealership & guess what, NOTHING. He didn't have to do anything anymore. Whew. LOL.

In the evening, Tommy decides he wants to make Hawaii's Spam Musubi sushi but we need the mold & ingredients. We head to Osbourne Village looking for Wasabi at Home but then I realized it's no longer there and in it's place is Kawaii Crepe! Hehehe. Being preggers, I beg Tommy to get some bubble tea! LOL. He reluctantly agreed. He got his Taro and I got my honeydew. YUMMY! But, I still prefer Asia City's bbtea. We end up driving to 2 different Asian stores to pick up the rest of ingredients. But still no mold to make. So Tommy's trying to think of what can we use at home...picking up my box for printer cartridges (ewww), rummaging through the kitchen cabinets. Then *DING!* I told him to use the can of the Spam as the mold! Duh! LOL. He calls me a "genius"! Well thanks babes, that's why you married me! =P
It was delicious!!!

Yes, this was just a day in the life for us. LOL. Today's another scorcher, maybe i'll go visit my mom at her house (she has A/C too). =)

37 weeks pregnant!

Wooohooo!

I made it to "term"! So that means anytime now this baby will be popping. I wish she would make an appearance ASAP but I don't either because I love being pregnant (besides the aches/pains) and feeling her move inside my belly. Ugh. Huge BELLY! I'm only 5 feet tall...ok, I lie, 4'11 1/2" !! My face, feet, legs, hands are swollen. I'm NOT looking forward to labour again. The whole contractions and pain and pushing. I was watching Baby Story the other day and when the woman was starting to push & scream, I changed the channel immediately. Don't need that now. LOL.

Anyway, the nursery is coming together! I LOVE IT! I love having girly colors now aka PINK and PURPLES! Yay!

Here are some pictures of the kids'/nursery room! I made those pom poms myself after being inspired by all those nurseries on Apartment Therapy's Ohdeedoh or Nursery Notations. Tommy hates them but I LOVE IT! Sorry the room is still a mess. Need to tidy up some more. But I LOVE THIS ROOM! LOL.

Anyway, back to some making some cards & working on my little 2nd pregnancy minibook.
