I absolutely cannot believe how quickly the time is flying. It feels like just yesterday I was still pregnant, and here we are, three weeks into my beautiful baby girl’s life. Three weeks ago today, Gwen came into our lives in a much more tangible way than she was previously. That little girl has turned our lives COMPLETELY upside down … and we couldn’t be happier!

Gwendolyn Eleanor Schellingerhoudt!!
She was born at 1:38 pm this afternoon in the comfort of our bedroom after 10 hours of active labour and around 45 minutes of pushing!! She weighed in at 5 lbs, 15 oz. and 19.5 inches long. Both Gwen and I are doing exceedingly well!

Alllllllll curled up in there and comfy! I must admit, I’m now getting a wee bit antsy to find out who’s in there. Boy or girl??? Continue reading
… said I to my husband last night as we went for a walk. “Slow down!”
(Yes. I call myself ‘waddles’. ‘Preggo’ and ‘preggers’ are also often used. Most often when talking about food, for example, “Preggers wants cake!” or “Preggo wants a hamburger!” I’m classy.) Continue reading
** Warning: Photo heavy post **
Well, my dad came up today to finish up the sanding on June Bug’s room, so other than priming that wall (which should take no time at all and I might do tomorrow), it’s done!! Here’s our photo journey of the past week of renovations. Continue reading
