My sister just sent me this photo of Cas in her sheep costume sam made her, how cute does she look?

This is why sam's house looks like a sheep was killed there with little bits of white everywhere.

This year I was unable to make cy a costume but we found a super cute purple dragon one, I will be posting pics later.

Happy Devil's Day to All!

Pregnant/Cold/2yr Old

I now have a cold so sleeping is entirely out, Cy has been really good, he seems to be very content to just hang out with Mama when I am doing nothing more then lying on the couch.

I can't wait until the c-section because then I will be able to take cold medicine, this is a bad cold, probably the worst that I have had in a long time.

Everybody should use hand sanitizer like it's going out of style!

False Labour Sucks!

Last night I was sure that I was in labour. All the signs were there, very regular contractions that not only were noticable but they were painful, I was actually leaning over the sink when they came cause they were so intense. Also the pain raidiated into my back. These are sure signs of labour. All of this from 3:30pm ish until 9:30ish when Q asked how I was and I grundgenly answered fine! They just seem to taper off when I am not paying attention. This has been the third time this month that I was sure it was labour.

The first time around my water broke at home so it was very ovious that it was labour, I wish mine would break again so then I would know without a doubt!

Nov 2!

Nov 2nd is the offical birthday to be for my baby to be. We have to be at the hospital at 6am! You would think that they would give new mother's to be the chance to sleep a little that last night before they never sleep again for about 18ish years. Oh well, baby should be out by 7:30am and then I will be able to pee on my own schedule not on a kick schedule!

It's really weird knowing when you are going to meet your new baby. I could argue that I knew when Cy was comming because he came on his due date but that is just a fluke of nature. A fluke similar to my mother having natural triplets 28 years ago! We have a very large family, plus another sister 2 years older then the triplets!

Q and I may have a huge family as well, who knows. First though I will see how hard having 2 is. I am a little worried about having enough energy for both of my babies plus a little left over for husband at the end of the day. I guess it will all work out but it's really hard to picture right now. Wish me luck!

Baby to be update

I went into the doctor's last thursday but someone else was in labour (lucky) so I had to reschedule my appt for friday.

On friday we scheduled the c-section for Oct 30 or Nov 2, the hospital has to call me to confirm, it depends on how many other ladies are having babies at the same time.

Q wants the 2nd because it turns out Oct 30 is considered Devil's Night. I looked it up to find this:

Devil's Night is a name associated with October 30, the night before Halloween. It is related to "mischief night" practiced in other parts of the United States and the world.

Devil's Night in Detroit dates as early as the 1930s. Traditionally, youths in Detroit engaged in a night of criminal behavior, which usually consisted of acts of vandalism (such as egging, soaping, or TP'ing). These were almost exclusively acts of petty vandalism, causing little to no property damage.
However, in the early 1970s the vandalism escalated to more devastating acts, such as
arson. This primarily took place in the city, but surrounding suburbs were often affected. Property owners unable to sell in the rapidly declining housing market would use this night as an opportunity to burn down their homes, collect the insurance money, and claim that an arsonist was at fault.
The crimes became more destructive in Detroit's inner-city neighborhoods, and included hundreds of acts of arson and vandalism every year. The destruction reached a peak in the mid- to late-1980s, with more than 800 fires set in 1984, and 500 to 800 fires in the three days and nights before Halloween in a typical year. (

I had no idea about this, Q said that he celebrated it when he was a kid in Ontario. The vandel!

That's all the news as of right now, my camera is at the camera doc's so it may be a bit before new pics!

Cy's 2nd Birthday

We had Cy's b day on the 10th of Oct because it was a saturday. Everyone came, even Auntie Lauren because she was in for a few days.

We made taco's and Kate made a cake. Q decorated it, it looked great and tasted great. Cy loved all his presents and his balloons. They are his obsession. Here are a few pics, Uncle Devon took more so I need to remember to ask him to send me some.

Also Devon just had shoulder surgery, it went well and I hope he feels better soon!

Ontario Holiday

On sunday night we came home. It was only 5 days in Ontario but they were very busy fun filled days.

Day -1:
Fly out of calgary arrive in hamilton @ 12:00am ish
Go to grandparents house

The plane ride was good. For anyone trying to fly with an almost 2 yr old and a very pregnant belly, make sure your husband is with you. Cy did good though just a bit wiggly which is to be expected. Q was a bit wiggly too! Ha ha.

Day 1:

Q and grandad installed trim in the grandparents living room. They got it all put up in 1 day with just patching nail holes to do later. Grandma and I and Cy went to walmart for food and any other extras we needed. Cy was overtired from not sleeping on the plane, he was sick everywhere in walmart! Then he pointed out that he had made a hugh mess! " i made a big mess mom" so cute!

The rest of the day was spent just hanging out at the grandparents house watching the boys work. Later that night the boys went go carting as the groom party. Groom was Q's bro. Grandmas and I met up with Q's sister and her 3 kids to go to a indoor playroom where you just sit and watch the kids play while you drink your coffee! It was great, Cy's cousins Ethan (7) and Emma (9) took Cy under their wings and all I had to do was relax and talk to Danielle , Marijanne, and Sarah (15). When did the kids get that old? We all went out for wendy's where Cy ate his whole dinner (very rare). Then home to bed.


Wedding rehersal day. I think we just hung out until 6ish where everyone got together for the wedding rehersal. The wedding was held in a Heritage Village. It was so neat, all the old buildings and a old train too! Nice weather for the rehersal. Cy slept right through the whole thing. In fact he also slept right through dinner when we all went out to this huge chinese buffet place. There were probably 14 of us, I think. Q, Me, Cy, Grandad, Grandma, Mike, Kate, Joe, Aunt Shirley, The photogropher and his wife and son, Matt, I think that's it. Cy slept from about 5pm until 7 am the next morning. What travelling will do to a little guy.

Day3... I will write more later, I am tired of writing.

On another quick note Cy did his very first poo in the potty on his 2nd birthday which was this past monday Oct 5! I was so proud of him that I almost took a picture. Don't worry I thought better of it, and just flushed the prized poo!

It seems with kids that you try to teach them something and one day it just clicks for them. The poo, (he did one yesterday too!) also with going down the stairs backwards so mama doesn't have a heart attack. He rocked the stairs at his grandparents house!

Cy is have his b-day party on sat! It will be so fun, I am going to make taco's and cake. I love that he is two! My sister asked me that other day If I totally can't believe that he's two. But for me it seems just right that he is. It's not like it was a shock when his b-day came.
