Comments Off on Feet First into Summer

One part of me is craving the super hot days of summer and then the other part of me is wondering if that is going to lead to extra swollen pregnancy feet and being uncomfortable. The most common statement I think I have received this pregnancy is something along the lines of “Good luck making it through summer”.

This first few hot days I am not going to lie, they took me by surprised and I was feeling super exhausted. Since taking that into consideration and being more conscious about staying hydrated I have seen such a difference. Making the effort to do more walking and embracing the weather has also allowed me to feel more comfortable in the heat. Being pregnant in the summer shouldn’t be something that is feared or have warning labels stuck to it, but rather something to look forward to.

So instead of focusing on the heat and how it could possibly make me feel uncomfortable this summer I am going to look forward to the benefits of the heat. This summer I will have a solid month together with both of the kids giving them attention and exploring before baby makes her arrival. For all you pregnant Mommas out there this summer, don’t let the usual comments get you down, but instead focus on the benefits you get from being pregnant this summer and enjoy your time (whether the feet swell or not it won’t last forever).

  • "Big Grandpa died Mom and we need to go get him back." Sophie said as she pulled at my arm from my bed. I lay down not feeling well trying to explain to Sophie about heaven and she said, "Mom, I don't want my parents to die, get better mommy." Oh my heart.

This weekend, we lost my grandfather. He had been sick for a little while, though I really did think his stubborn character would pull him through for more days here on earth. He's resting now, in heaven with our Heavenly Father. There is so much peace in that, though it is never easy to say goodbye, I am especially thankful for God's love and his sacrifice.

For anyone else mourning a loss right now I'm praying and sending love to you tonight. Especially those with little ones who we want to be honest with, that we have the words to let them understand in the most suitable way.

  • For a minute I thought Ezra was only a head shorter then me. We still have time people, notice the feet on tip toes in his shoes... not quite there yet. (Soooo... it's been noted that I'm wearing heels and he really IS THAT TALL NEXT TO ME!)
  • Weekend started early with a little trip to the island with my sister @roxannredekop. The weirdest part about being away from the kids is always bedtime. We are tucking into bed early tonight and I can't help but feel weird knowing that the wee ones won't be around in the morning.
  • The whole family gathered for a taste around my latest @DQcanada creation. Sophie kept asking if it was for Evelyn's birthday, which I think it would have been perfect for since I custom designed the top border with florals.⠀
•⠀
So here's how I made it. I went into dqcakes.com and found this heart shaped cake. It originally had balloons and "Happy Birthday" on the top with a plain white border around the edge. In the personalization option I simply asked for no words or decor on the top and a floral border in purple around the outside top border. Voila! You can do it to! Head to the link in my profile and play around with the different styles and options available on DQcakes.com⠀
