Journey with baby

Well I am very excited the past about four days cause the baby has been moving around like crazy. Its an amazing feeling when you finally get a connection with the little life inside of your belly. Ry felt the baby move for the first time this morning after me persisting him to keep trying..stubborn baby already lol!..always stops moving whenever we want him to.

Tomorrow we go for our second ultrasound and it will be Ryan's first time cause he couldn't make the first one. I am now 23 weeks along...the first ultrasound was at 13 weeks. I am excited but also can't help but being a smidgyy bit nervous. Any mother would understand the way I feel I am sure. We all just want healthy babies.

So my tummy is getting big..I've gained about 11 pnds so far. My belly button will start poking out soon..hehe I'm excited for that. I'm just happy because I have so much more energy now and I feel like I have my patience back ...well for the most part. I am also done vomiting finally. Just incase you wanted to know that special detail.

Me and Ry have been working on renovating our house..painting, garden/yard work, fixing up little projects here and there...nyway we are trying to get ready so we can sell our house and move a little closer to town. We hope to have the house on the market by August.

Also my sister is pregnant with twins!!! so we will need to live closer to eachother for sure. Me and my sister are really close and we need to be a big part of eachother's lives..and with three new babies ...well thats a little hard to see eachother every couple of days when you live an 45 min to an hour away. There are other reasons why it makes sense for us to move as well.

Well thats pretty much an update on our lives. I have been wanting to keep up with this blog because its so nice to be able to look back like a journal down the road. So I am going to make a better efort this time.

Little Baby K!

So for anybody that doesn't know yet me and Ry are having a baby!!! It is due on Oct 25Th and we are really excited. Yesterday it became a little more reality hearing the heartbeat and seeing the ultrasound. I am at 13 weeks.

I've been quite nauseated so I haven't been wanting to sit at the computer much these days but today I feel good so maybe the sickness is on its way out now!

I everybody is doing well.

Drop me a line when you get the chance.

Peace out

Buddies, O's birthday, and Galiano

We are fostering a friend's kitty for a year. His name is Taz. He is so handsome and he is fitting in nicely...such a cute boy, we are so lucky to have him. Here is a photo of Ike and Taz hanging
out. They are buddies!

It was my nephew Owen's 2nd birthday. I was lucky to be able to see him on his birthday and I even got to be at his party!!!!! He got a new bike from his parents..Boy is he cute and he is such a comedian, he loves to make people laugh! Happy Bday Owey!

Galiano was really really great. Did lots of hiking and exploring. Even in the fog it was beautiful. Here is a photo from our bedroom window. The cottage was 500sq feet and so cozy. It was perfect. I will definatly post more photos as many as I can...although it was tough taking pictures with the lack of light..most of them I took without the flash, I like getting the natural lighting.

Galiano Island

We are heading to our favorite Gulf Island, Galiano, for two nights in a ocean front, nestled in the trees cottage with a hottub on the patio. I bought this trip for ry as a surprise a while back. It is our 2nd anniversary this friday so this is how we are celebrating. I love it there its one of my favorite places in the world, the island is still much preserved and has great hiking, awesome scenery, spectacular beaches and a lot of birds, native plants etc.. We are bringing Tessa with us. These are the kinds of things I live for!

'Your life can be what you want it to be'

The Law of Attraction

You get what you think about, whether wanted or unwanted.
All forms of matter and energy are attracted to that which is of a like vibration.
You are a living magnet.
You get what you put your energy and focus on, whether wanted or unwanted.
Energy attracts like energy
Everything draws to itself that which is like itself.

Go Canucks Go

Ry and I went to Vancouver on our weekend and saw a canucks game (my Christmas present from husband). It was my first Canucks live experience! Canucks fans sure are the loudest and craziest fans out there thats for sure. We lost in OT but it was still a great game and last night I'd like to add that we kicked Edmonton's asses, so there that makes up for the OT loss to Columbus. Vancouver was fun but I always love coming home from the big city I guess I''m just not a city gal. Vancouver is a beautiful city though...pretty skyline and gorgeous mountains surrounding.

Mount Washington I unfortunatly didn't take many photos, but here are a few...I wish I brought the camera on the slopes with us!

The Conditions for skiing were amazing, couldn't ask for better... nice fresh layers of powder, sunny skies off & on... Oh yahh
I want to go back. I was trying to learn how to do jumps (while skiing) I managed to pull one off that was higher than the usual inch haha...ya gotta start somewhere right? anyways, I was proud of myself and thats all that counts. One day I'll do those big scary ones, but until then a foot of air will be just fine..anywho the chalet was so peaceful, it was not tough falling into that lifestyle. Good company, perfect skiing, hottub, sauna, drinks, yummy food and beautiful scenery mmm mmm mmmmmmmmm.......

Mount Washington

We are heading up the Mountain for three nights to stay in a chalet with some friends. I am pumped! Last time I went snowboarding I discovered muscles that I didn't know existed..I am bringing my skis up to so I'll be switching between snowboarding and skiing. I look forward to the peacefulness up there and there is a ton of snow up there! I get to try out my new Jacket too..I love my new jacket its cozy.

'The Big Gust'

Yesterday afternoon we were getting southwesterly winds and arctic air was on its way in from the north. So I think the two fronts met and we got a huge gust of wind and it knocked trees down everywhere. It travelled through Sooke, into Colwood and My parents up in Nanaimo got it about half hour later. It was the weirdest freakish wind gust ever. A single mother with her newborn baby one block up from us had a tree come right through her roof destroying the entire house and they somehow thankfully were spared and got out safely. Across the street from us, as we were watching the huge wind gust hit, we saw a group of four trees roots and all be taken over just missing the house and then another huge fir tree luckily missing the two homes across from us by maybe a cm. Maybe a part of the roof was damaged thats it. So lucky. All the wires came down. Scary stuff....these two photos are taken from our house looking across the street.

The Tragically Hip Concert

Monday, January 08, 2007

A few words from my favorite artist, BY FAR, of all time and for all time

I want them all back. The Iraqi kids, the American kids, and the kids that tied their stars to some idiotic fundamentalist crusade and traveled to Iraq to do what they were convinced was the will of God. I want the All Mighty to get off his ass and start sending some tsunamis at the Palestinian/Israeli coastline just to see how long it takes enemies to become necessary friends when all the bullshit that people create to divide themselves is no longer of importance.
I want them all back, every single one of them, along with every ounce of blood that flowed through their bodies, their dreams, their fears, their good, their bad, their truths, and their lies.
I want them all back because it has never been our right to take them.
Emancipation is the goal of all humanity. The greed implicit in controlling the emancipation of others is the goal of half of humanity. Looking the other way is the pastime of the other half.
In the end, everyone climbs thirteen steps, criminals or not.

-A few words taken from Matthew Good's 'Thirteen Steps'

oh and the Hip concert last night was oh so good....they were amazing and they played a lot of old stuff, my favorite stuff. To all you people who sat through the entire show....come on its a rock concert aren't you into the music enough to stand up and get into it a little more???I think we are a little lame here in Victoria...I don't ever remember this happening at one Vancouver show. What up with that?

My My Hey Hey

our computer is being so sloooooooooooooooooooow. It needs a cleanup. A laptop would be nice ..but must spend money elsewhere. Like on a hot tub..yup. I have hmm lets see here...I have 300.00 in my hottub account.I am slowly on my way....this same account was my previous Kayak fund...(dork)remember I spent the money on clothes though cause I desperately needed stuff. Hope I can let this actually accumulate enough to get a hottub. mmmmm hottub...sounds nice right about now.

Exciting month ahead..on Sunday The Hip concert, and then we are going skiing/snowboarding at Mnt. Washington for three nights (on the 13th) with some close friends and then January 30th Ry is taking me to Vancouver for a CANUCKS GAME!!! My first one too, Im physced! Ry got us tickets for Christmas. And then I bought Ry, for our 2 year wedding anniversary, a two night getaway to Galiano Island (one of our favorite places to camp), we have a ocean front cabin this time though with a hottub out on the deck and the puppy girl gets to come too! So we will be a little broke after it all is over but what the hell right..We don't do these things often. I look forward to getting away. Life has been tiring lately.

I was listening to the radio and they were about to give away hip tickets and I already have tickets but front row ones sound better so I am trying to win..anyway I call in cause a Tragically Hip song is playing and when two play you have to be the 9th caller and you win tickets, so I call and I get almost interviewed by the radio dude... asking me Tragically hip questions and what my hip memories are...and I knew he was prob recording me to play afterwards. So after I was off the phone he plays our conversation on the radio and I sounded dorky. I didnt win tickets though. That was my excitement for the day. Oh then I called Rich and Leah to help try win and they tried for me also but didn't win. Thanks for trying guys. And they aren't even Hip fans what nice friends!

Neil Young was just on...My My Hey Hey Rockn'Roll is here to stay better to burn out than fade away My My Hey Hey

I procrastinate too much. With my own life not at work though. I am actually quite efficient and get things done at work, but at home I am really really bad with procrastinating. I really want and need to change this and some other bad habits and such thrown in there too. I know what I need in my life to make me happier but why don't I do it. I want to finish painting inside the house but I haven't. I want to paint and draw more, I want to frame my photography. I need to work on my artistic side more. That is me, I am an artistic person and I havent been doing enough. I feel better just writing about it maybe it will help me change.

Merry Ho Ho and Happy New Year!

Hope everybody is having a fabulous holiday. Ryan and I had a great time over Christmas..Blogger would only let me put up a few photos...they all are from Christmas Day at my parents house in Nanaimo, but we also had a Christmas dinner at Ry's dad's house with 19 of us on Christmas Eve, and also a big dinner with Ry's mom's side of the family on Boxing Day, I will post them when it lets me. Anyway though it was so nice to see all our family this year. I love them.
