My Ottawa Baby Shower

My Halifax Baby Shower

Pregnancy Update – Month 8

By Friday, March 18, 2016

ONE MONTH. This is going to be a very long post. Stay with me! Around 33 weeks, on our 8th anniversary (February 29th) I feel like a blog post could never sum up the last 30 days. It's not so much that a lot has happened (although there ...

Pregnancy Update – Month 5

By Wednesday, December 16, 2015
