New Stuff

Yesterday hubby and Cy went to Calgary to find flooring. We found click flooring in dark wood for 30% off plus we do not have to pay for a year! We have enough to do the livingroom and the two bedrooms. I am so excited! Thoes were the last rooms that needed flooring from the origional gutting of the house we did when we bought it.

Picture this:dark wood, green fuzzy rug, tree painted on the's room! It's going to look awsome! I am so excited to finally really decorate Cy's room, soon to be shared with the new addition in Nov. Can you tell that I am nesting? All I wanted to do today is stay home from work and organize the house.

Cy is almost 22 months, where did the time go? I am trying to teach him to say 22 months if he is asked how old he is. Almost there! Today and tomorrow are my last work days during the week....I cannot wait, I really miss being home with him all day. Plus I want to have some more time with him before the new baby. It will never be just Cy and Mama after Nov, I am not really sure how I feel about this. Don't get me wrong I am SO excited for the new baby, but it will be such a change in what we have will be fine I know but I cannot help but can I love another as much? Will Cy feel left out? Time will tell and consiously thinking about Cy time as well.

Have a great Monday!

Day 5 eating clean!

Today is my day firve of eating clean and it's going great! I already ate pretty healthy already but I definately had trouble getting enough veggies and eating too much junk food!

The only chemical food I have was a sip of Q's pop last night....woe is me! I got a headache almost immediately. Since I always seemed to have headaches and migraines I am not surprise to find that my diet had something to do with it.

Does anyone else seem to have trouble eating enough foods? I eat a ton or so I think, being pregnant I need about 2000cal/day. It seems that I get to the end of my day and I am usually short. Love that rye bread and pb after dinner!

Auntie Sheron

Today was the first day that Cy went to Auntie Sheron's house while I work. I am very excited that he will go there 2 days, and I will have him the rest of the week. The last two weeks I have been at home, I realized how much I miss being at home with my bean. Also how much cleaner our house is, better our dinners are, ect. I miss being at home!

I only have to work until Oct then I will have enough hours for maternity leave when the new baby comes near the end of October. Two will be so much fun!

Cy didn't mind going to Sheron's at all, I was not worried that he would be upset, he is so easy going. Plus Sheron is a mother and grandmother so she is perfect for the job!

Sleepy head

Lately Cy has finally gotten into a great bed routine, bath, book, teeth, then bed. The best part is that he lasy down, puts his water aside, and pulls up the blanket, we say goodnight and usually within 10 minutes bean has put himself to sleep! Nothing reduces stress more then knowing that baby bedtime is no longer a fight!

Today we went to the quarry with Auntie S, and Auntie A (once removed?) and Uncle M and cousin C. 18 months old. Bean only dipped his ankles and Cassie went right in! Brave girl...very cold! A great day, I love summer!

Cy has been all about playing outside. I am finding it hard to go for walks with him because he does not stay close to me or listen when I call him back. An almost 2yr old. Anyone have any ideas of how to make this a little easier. It kind of reminds me of training my dogs to come back...but they want to please me more then my baby does. Hmmmm possibly if I walked with cookies, like I used to with the dogs.

Last day today at Donna's house. Our babysitter. I am really looking foreward to being home more with baby. I really miss him. The longest days are my 10-7pm shift. I get home and have about 1 hr before I have to get baby to bed. Never enough time.

Our garden is taking off! The potatoes are huge! Everything else is comming along too. I can't wait until we can start harvesting. I always had a fear of nothing growing after all our hard work. Q always thought...why wouldn't it grow? He is so trusting. Plus he used a ton of manuer.
