tired? who me?

Since l'il E has come along, sleep has been pretty much non-existent (yawn!). The funny thing is when I do fall into bed at night for a couple of hours it's the most comfortable bed on earth (I don't remember it ever feeling so plush and inviting). Today I spent the majority of the day in and around my bed while E slept and fed and I feel so much better. I figure I have to surrender some days and not feel guilty for resting.

If you're pregs and about to pop do the following things now (and repeat)!

  • Go to bed at 9:00 pm and sleep until 9:00 am
  • Take a 30 minute shower, shave your legs and your arm pits, exfoliate
  • Lounge in your pj's and read the newspaper on the couch in total silence
  • Watch a movie with your Hubs and eat popcorn
  • Take your time while you eat every meal and sit at the table

Enjoy your last few weeks of freedom and sweet dreams.



i'm a mom

The Hubs and I are officially parents! After a great Sunday doing yoga, going for brunch and watching the Superbowl with friends our little man decided it was time to get on with things. We welcomed our baby boy (Ethan) into the world respectfully early on Monday morning at 7:24 a.m. Unfortunately I had to have an emergency c section after several hours of hard labour, but thankfully both Ethan and I are thriving.

As I mentioned before, I promise this won't become a mommy blog but I can assure you I will have to post the odd Ethan story every one in a while. He's just too cute!

Happy to be back!
