Watch the Bump Grow: 19 Weeks to 40 Weeks

Capturing the moments of pregnancy and how our bellies develop is something that I feel is overlooked by so many. Even for me and the first time around I didn’t think that it was something that I would care to look back on and because of that I didn’t take as many photos as I would have liked now. With Evelyn I made a conscious effort to capture weekly photos of the bump and I love looking back now and seeing the progress.

A couple tips for making sure you can remember to document each week.

1. Use an app that reminds you to take a ‘bumpie’ or set it in your calendar.

2. Some people like to wear the same clothing to see how it changes in a more accurate comparison

3. Don’t delete any photos if you don’t like them at the time, save them because I can almost guarantee you once baby is here you will love looking back at the ones you have.

4. Have fun and maybe even make a cool collage like this at the end of it.

Surprise to us! Evelyn arrived just before our due date and our 40 week bump was more of a 12 week bump (hehe!) and we had baby on the outside.

  • A quick snap before we head out this morning, Sophie jumped in at the last second smiling with alllll her teeth 😍❤️ my shirt .. which is actually a bodysuit is @gentlefawn | hat @gigipip | shorts and cardigan @shophunnis | Hair curled with new wand from @conaircanada
  • May have gone a tad overboard on the swim gear a couple of days ago to get them excited for their swim lessons.

Goal: Can never be too prepared.

Reality: The whale floatie popped in our house the day I bought it, the morning of swim lessons was a rush to get ready, I regretted not findinng and organizing all their swimwear the night before, got breakfast through the drive through on the way over and somehow successfully completed day 1 of swim lessons. The kids were all smiles.... for the most part.
  • I was reading an article recently that said floral is the flavour of the year, thanks to the Royals serving a Lemon Elderflower wedding cake. Hopping right on that elderflower trend for this new recipe by experimenting with my new @sodastreamcanada FIZZI One Touch sparkling water maker.

Here's what I used: • @sodastream Sparkling Water that I created in seconds at home • Sparkling Elderflower
• Peaches
• Rosemary

Check out my latest blog post for the full recipe. 
Fun Tip: Turn any favourite sparkling water recipe by using half as much sparkling water and adding in your wine of choice (doesn't hurt to top it up with more berries either 😉 )

  • On our way to drop this guy off at the airport again. We had five glorious days with him at home and now it's back to single momming it. #deepbreath
  • Picked up this wreath from @eucalyptuspopup today for a video shoot tomorrow (see my last post for what that’s about) and def think wreaths are perfect home decor all year round. What do you think?
  • A good night’s sleep makes a huge difference for how our kids behave throughout the day and how much energy they have to do the things they love!⠀
