Preparing for Baby!

I remember how tired I was when Lily came home, and how much we ordered in for the first few weeks... I really didn't want to eat like that again, especially with Lily. So I decided to make and freeze a bunch of meals for us to have once our little guy arrives!

In the last 3 days I have made (with help from Nelson) 22 dinners and 24 lunches!

Here is what we made:
  • 1 lasagna
  • 1 shepherds pie
  • 2 beef soups
  • 3 ground beef soups
  • 3 beef stews
  • 3 chicken soups
  • 2 containers shredded BBQ chicken
  • 1 tomato beef broth
  • 1 sweet and sour pork meal
  • 5 pasta sauces
  • 18 servings pre-cooked chicken strips
  • 3 lunch sized ground beef soups
  • 3 lunch sized beef stews

Plus each of the dinner servings should make enough for lunch the next day! Also we have had some people mention that they want to help us out with food- so that is also greatly appreciated!! I am so relieved that we will have some healthy meals to eat once the baby arrives!

If anyone would like any of the recipes for any of the above meals just leave a comment and I will reply to you!!

Lily Swimming!

Lily is such a water baby... loves to swim! Here is a short video I caught on my blackberry while Lily was swimming with her Ava!

She is really good at kicking and moving her arms! I must say- the puddle jumper is one of our favourite purchases this summer!

Beach Pics! (finally)

Finally I have found some time to post our beach pictures!! We had a wonderful time at Wasaga Beach- it was relaxing, fun, and a much needed getaway!

Lily wasn't a fan of the sand- she just kept saying "dirty"... but eventually we got her to play in it!

Enjoy the pics!

20 Months!

Lily turned 20 months on Monday!! Growing up so fast!

She is now 24lbs (still) and is 31 inches tall!

There isn't a word she doesn't say- she repeats everything we do! We have corrected all of the words she was saying wrong (that sounded like bad words).

She recognizes all 26 letter and knows every picture on the back of her alphabet flash cards! She can count to 3, sometimes 4... and she tries to recite the alphabet- normally just "a b c d".

Her favourite songs are:
- patty cake
- baby bumble bee
- herman the worm
- row row row your boat
- and the Dora theme song!

Her favourite things to watch on tv are:
- Dora the Explorer
- Elmo
- Diego
- Finding Nemo
- Care Bears

Her favourite activities are:
- reading her books
- colouring
- dancing
- singing songs

Lily has been very picky with what she wears still- she loves to be "pretty" and she calls certain outfits "cute"- and will only wear those ones! She also loves to wear pretties in her hair and on her wrists, etc.

I will post lots of pictures from the beach soon, and of Lily over the last few weeks! She has been such a ham lately- posing, smiling, making faces! I love it!
