Big News!!

Lily is going to be a big sister!! (and before I go any further, please, do not share this news yet... we don't plan on telling most people until we are 3 months along).

We found out 3 weeks ago that we are expecting again!! It was a big surprise for us as it took so long for us to be blessed with Lily. We were planning to head back to the doctors the end of January to start fertility treatments again... but we are very blessed and somehow did it on our own!!

I didn't want to say anything here until we knew everything was going well. I had my first ultrasound today and we saw one tiny baby, with one tiny heartbeat!!

As of now our due date is September 18th, but that could change next week after I see my doctor and she tells me what the baby was measuring on the ultrasound.

Here our little peanuts first picture: We are looking forward to this new adventure!!

Lily has been so much fun lately... she is constantly making us laugh!

She loves to play with all of her new Christmas toys, especially her playhouse and tea set. She pours us "tea" and pretends to slurp and eat the food- it is adorable!

She loves to climb on her chairs and bounce (we discourage this, lol).

She is always talking and babbling and making us and herself laugh- most of the time we don't know what she is saying, but we carry on a conversation with her. She is learning new words every day- it is so much fun to hear he say new things!

Lily is now in Baby Painting on Saturday mornings- she isn't too sure about getting dirty, but she likes to see her colouring results.

She is also taking swimming lessons Monday nights with Daddy... She loves them!!

I will do a pictures post soon!!

On our way to potty trained!!

We weren't trying to potty train Lily, but she gets the whole concept, so we are going with it!

She went 5 times on the potty today!!! She has gone poop everyday for the last 3 days on it as well. Tonight she even grunted and cried so I asked her if she wanted to go on the potty and she reached for me- so up we went to her potty and sure enough she started grunting and she pooped almost right away!!

She gets so excited and laughs and claps when she goes!! We cheer and sing for her and she gets the biggest, cutest grin ever!! I love it!!

I am so proud of her, way to go Lily!!!

Tea Party!!

Lily hosted a tea party tonight in her play house... it was wonderful and the best tea I have ever tasted!!

Daddy's Little Helper

Lily wanted to help Daddy build a new chair today, she was such a good helper!!




Boxing Day!

We spent most of Boxing day relaxing, although I did head out to do a bit of shopping with a friend, leaving Lily and Nelson at home.

In the late afternoon we headed to "the farm", my Dad's parents house. We had a very nice dinner followed by some gifts. It was a nice evening and Lily got to play with her cousins.

Christmas with the Duguays!!

Christmas posts are almost done... just one more after this!

We had a wonderful time with the Duguay family... always a big family event enjoyed by all.

I forgot to bring my camera, so I am hoping to get some from family members soon!!

Christmas Morning at Grandma and Grandpas

After we opened presents at our own house and got ready we headed to Cambridge to have Christmas morning with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Julie, Uncle Jeff and Aunt Michele! We had a great time and were spoiled all over again, especially miss Lily! She had a great time opening gifts and playing with everyone!

Such a Big Girl

We had a very long day today and have been so off schedule through the holidays- Lily hasn't been peeing on the potty as much as she normally does- she sits on it, reads, swings her legs, etc... but doesn't always pee.

Well... tonight when we got home I was changing her diaper and she started pointing at the potty, so I put her on it. After a few minutes of reading her book she started to really grunt and turn red... Then she cried a bit and then got a HUGE smile on her face as she jumped off... she turned and pointed inside and said "I did", she was sooooo excited! She had the biggest poop ever, and on the potty!! Nelson and I are soo proud of her, but we couldn't possibly be as proud as she is- she has a HUGE grin on her face and gets soo excited and points to the potty!!

How nice would it be if she kept this up, lol.
