Thursday, January 9th, we welcomed our daughter Bo into the world. She was 8 lbs, 6oz and just over 20 inches long – bigger than her brother! Ben was very excited to meet his sister and loves having her home. He showers her with hugs and kisses and is the first to reach her when she cries, pulling me by the hand behind him. Here are some pics from mine and Bo’s hospital stay.
We had the most wonderful Christmas. It was easy and relaxing as I am pretty much immobile at this point in my pregnancy – almost 38 weeks! Ben isn’t at an age where he understands what exactly is going on but, he loved Christmas trees, the colourful wrapping paper and bright lights. He also was eager to open everyones gifts. We hope everyone had a great holiday!
Going to get the mail has taken on a whole new meaning since winter arrived. It is a much longer process that Ben MUST be involved in. God forbid David or I go outside into the glorious snow without him. We’ve been waiting for the snow to come to see him in this red snowsuit. Doesn’t he look like Ralphie’s little brother Randy from The Christmas Story?
PS – I think I’m adjusting well into country life to the shock of some of my friends. When driving to Detroit a couple weeks ago, I pointed and gasped seeing some farms have not yet harvested their corn into the month of December.
I love Facebook’s ‘Year In Review’ option. It is a great reminder of what happened in 2013. With the click of a button, your 20 biggest moments of the year are rounded up. Mine were all big and funny family moments. You can see mine by clicking here https://www.facebook.com/yearinreview/cemacdonald1 and can check yours our by going to your own profile page.
Here’s our Christmas card. Take that Kardashians! I added in a few more pics from New Town Images. You can see more on her Facebook when you click here. I’m still loving my HBC vintage coat – what a great piece. Click here for an outfit post of me wearing it when I wasnt pregnant.
I’m really excited about my latest Ebay purchase. This hand-knit sweater came from Vancouver – they are impossible to come by in vintage stores and so expensive to buy new. A great find! If you’re in the market, search ‘cowichan sweater’.
