I am still confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord
Psalm 27: 13-14

Happy New Year

Breakfast fun! This was from this morning. Evan is NOT a fan of cereal! So prefers to mash it all over his face! hee hee hee
Evan is TOTALLY in to biting his upper lip!!! It is the most hilarious thing I've ever seen!!
It almost looks like Bailey ate Evan and now Evan is trying to escape!!!! AH HA HA HA HA
Reminising - This was December 25/08 with Zac and Evan! Ahhhh, I miss that belly of boys!
Reminising - December 25, 2008 with Zac and Evan still blissfully inside! I was 18 weeks.
Wow, I can't believe it's 2010. It's hard to believe that this time last year I was still blissfully pregnant without any knowledge of the events that were soon to transpire. I have to say...I almost forget what it was like to be pregnant having missed my third trimester!! And to be honest...I MISS being pregnant! I miss every discomfort and every bulge and every movement and even every sleepless night! After almost 10 years...you cherish the things that a lot of people "complain" about. And even though you "complain" too...you do so with so much gratitude and thankfulness, and then remember to stop "complaining". It is everything you ever dreamed of and hoped for. You don't want it to stop before it's supposed to! And when/if it does before it should...you miss everything you should have kept experiencing. And it's hard to watch those who carry on to term because you wonder what it would have been like.
Anyhow, I'm unbelievably grateful for what I DID experience. I cherish each day of those 28 weeks.
New Years was fairly quiet. But that's good with us. We've never been ones to make a huge deal of New Years. We prefer to hang with friends and just enjoy each others company. But this year we just hung out at home so Evan could sleep. Ordered pizza and watched the Canada/US hockey game with my parents. OK, well Brett and my dad watched...mom partially watched...and me...well, whatever...I don't often get in to watching hockey on TV. So I started crocheting a little blanket for Evan. We'll see how that turns out!! Could be one of those funny keepsake kind of things!
Evan just keeps getting more and more active and more and more curious about everything around him. The other night Brett and I were watching him trying to figure out attempting to get up on his knees...which quickly turned in to a faceplant on the carpet...but it was crazy to watch the wheels in his head spinning! I know he wants to get places quicker...and once he gets crawling...WATCH OUT!!! I'm going to be racing all over the place!!
He is still working on his third tooth to totally come through. I can see it, but it's not completely there yet.
He is absolutely enamoured by music and when he hears it he starts doing this humming thing!! Maybe I have a singer on my hands!! Except Brett told me he was already looking at hockey sticks for Evan the other day! Heee hee hee hee. That's okay...I'm TOTALLY up for being a hockey mom, or whatever sport/activity Evan chooses!
The last couple of weeks have been nice not having appointments to race to with Evan. December was pretty crazy! We have a couple of appointments next week. One is his standard appointment with his physio and OT, and then his 3rd round of RSV shots. But other than that, we have a pretty appointment-free month. PHEW! It will be busy enough with packing up our house and getting it ready to sell! We aren't that far off from the new house being ready.
Anyhow, on that note I should sign off and get back to thinking about the packing I plan to do today!! I am TOTALLY procrastinating!!!!!!

  1. I know exactly what you mean about missing being pregnant--even though it can be SO uncomfortable (I often told John that it was VERY hard work to grow a human!) sometimes, the sheer miracle of it all just overrides that. You miss feeling like your purpose is so much bigger than it ever has been before. You miss being chosen as the vessel for a most prized treasure. At least, that's how it is for me...

    I cannot get over how cute Evan's cheeks are!! Precious!
