And wouldn't you know. The Angry Birds Baby collection starts shipping the day after my due date. Totally cool to get these as gifts but let's just hope the sounds of my newborn entering the world are nothing like that of birds being launched in the air...rrraahh!

Day one. We ate breakfast in our condo and got ready for an early start. I attended the bloggers' morning and had planned for everyone to be occupied during that time. Hannah would spend the morning at Treasures, Child Care Centre, and Chris would go to the Zipline Canopy Tour (an early father's day present).

I think I was most happy about the quick nature of the sale because I no longer needed to keep the house looking immaculate. But once the dust (and dog hair and toys) settled, it quickly hit me that we have less than 3 months to find a new place.

The cuteness started with "I like...". It was so cute and genuine at the beginning with I like mommy and I like daddy but when I like tires and I like medicine got thrown into the mix it didn't feel quite so special.
Then came I love daddy and I like daddy so much. My heart melted even though the cuteness wasn't directed at me.
And this weekend, she took it to a whole new level with " I want...". The beginning of full sentences but also many, many requests. I want supper, I want chocolate, I want it now...
The ultimate plus to this advancement in vocabulary has been a truly happy little girl. now that she can say exactly what she wants, the tantrums have all but disappeared.
Definitely a milestone week in our household!

Just $4.49 US a bottle, with lemonade and strawberry flavours, the fizzing action of these soaps is sure to get any kid excited about hand washing (especially during cold season).

It started off with a call from school last Friday that she coughed her way through nap time and was exhausted. A bit of puke, an extremely high fever and 3 days home sick.
What did I learn through it all? Stay at home moms are amazing! Granted we were a bit cooped up due to illness, I don't know how stay at home moms do it. Entertaining, planning, physical exhaustion. When I get home from a short day at the office I've been sitting for 5-6 hours so I've got the energy for Hannah from 3pm-7:30pm but this 24 hour kid thing takes everything out of you! Maybe the bun in the oven is partly to blame but kudos to all you 24/7 moms.
Then, I had my 2nd doctor's appointment and finally caved for the Diclectin. I'm going into week 15 now and my nausea symptoms aren't getting much better. So I took the first pill last night before my early bedtime of 9pm. I awoke at midnight (the third part of this post) feeling absolutely nauseous. I know the pills cause drowsiness but I wasn't expecting to feel nausea off the bat. My symptoms this morning weren't completely gone and now I'm contemplating popping another pill.
Finally, hives. The past two nights have been rough as Hannah is finally better from her cold but broke out in a sudden rash. Two nights ago my husband spent two hours on her floor, after coating her with ample layers of cream. Last night, her entire face was covered in hives.
I raked my brain trying to think of what was new (food, drink, routine) and finally realized that I had switched from Natural Bounce sheets to Outdoor Fresh Bounce sheets. And her pillow case had just been cleaned in them the day before. So to avoid any more late night calamity, she came into our bed (which my back is still blaming me for) and I'm in the process of re-washing all of her bedding and clothing.
So now we have the weekend to look forward to and 8 whole days off of school. At least we've got sickness and allergic reactions out of the way...now to solve the nausea dilemma. Hoping it will do that on its own :)
