A Mommy and her boys

Playing, diapers, learning diapers, feeding, diapers and growing…one day at a time!

It’s almost Halloween! October 23, 2007

I haven’t decided what Harrison is going to be yet.  I bought a bunch of costumes on sale after Halloween last year, so I need to go through them and find a costume.

My parents just got a webcam — how crazy is that?  I am SO excited about it.  We got it all hooked up today over the phone and we chatted over the webcam this afternoon.  It was SO fun.  Harrison waved and did most of his tricks for them.

Well, yesterday we went over to Brian’s cousin’s house and made sugar cookies for Halloween.  Here is Harrison eating some…mmmmmmm, messy!

Oh, and notice the short hair!  He got it alllllll chopped off 😦




I keep forgetting… October 17, 2007

to tell all of you that Harrison can swim.  We put water wings on him and he swims all around the pool.  I don’t have to hold him.  He just jumps in and swims away.  He is a fish, just like his dad!  I’m going to take video next time!


17 Weeks! October 16, 2007

Well, I’m 17 weeks.  I am not feeling good at all right now.  I am actually having some cramping and I threw up today.  This isn’t fun.  I am trying to take things easy. 

Anyway, last night I went to a Wedding Vendors meeting and met other people in the wedding business and there were quite a few other photographers there, but it was great anyway!  I actually got all dolled up for a change.  Also, check out the new haircut and I went back to blonde highlights!

 And the bottom picture is the most common site around here.  Harrison LOVES to lay on Inde and Inde takes it like a man!  I hear “cat cat cat” all day.

Aww…he is so precious! October 10, 2007

I just love watching him sleep.  I didn’t use a flash, so I wouldn’t wake him up, so that’s why it is dark.



A baby milestone

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 2:13 pm

I can feel the baby moving!  I SO missed this feeling.  I have yet another active one in there.  Harrison moved 24/7, I swear he didn’t sleep in there.  I feel this one all day too.  I LOVE it!  I need to update with a picture.  I’ll work on that!


Too much going on! October 5, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — harrisonandmommy @ 8:53 pm

Well, I thought I should update on what has been going on with us!

We moved on Saturday.  We were living in a really nice house, but they wanted up our rent to $1,650/month and we were already paying $1,500, which was too much when you add up the retarded cost of utilities.  So we moved into a tiny little 2/2 condo.  It will work.  The cost of living here is similar to Calgary.  I actually think it is worse here in most respects.  The only thing I have seen here that costs less is groceries.  Anyway, so we moved.  Thank goodness we had Brian’s mom here to help pack and to play with Harrison.  He was pretty attached to his Grandma! 

We went to Seaworld on Wednesday, which is always fun.  Harrison loves it there. 

On the pregnancy front, my ultrasound is on Halloween, so I’ll let you all know if there is just one baby in there!  I’m SO tired.  I thought your second trimester was supposed to be the best.  Not the case.  I’m not near as nauseous as I was in the first trimester, but I still throw up occasionally.  I have just never been this tired in my life.  I feel like I can barely function some days.  I’m taking my vitamins.  I just don’t know what to do.  It doesn’t matter if I get out and walk with Harrison, as soon as we get home I crash.  I have an entire house to unpack and all I want to do is curl up in a ball and sleep.  I see the midwife soon, so maybe she can suggest something.  Any ideas out in blogland? 

Brian is still working 12+ hours a day.  I miss him, and Harrison does to.  Brian is good to see Harrison first thing in the morning when he gets up, he gets him up.  And he tries to make it home in time to see him, but yesterday he didn’t.  I don’t think there have been many days where he hasn’t seen him at all.  It is a different life than we had in Calgary, but it will all be worth it in the end.

Hopefully McDs will give us news soon as to whether or not we are staying in South Florida.  It sounds like we probably are, but nothing for sure yet.  I’m hoping to buy a house before the baby gets here.  I can’t fathom having a baby in this little apartment, but I know there are some of you out there in little places with babies and kids. 

 Thanks for listening to me blab!
