baby roo

summer has been off to a bit of a slow start for us. i am finally over the morning sickness that stopped me in my tracks during the first trimester, but am now so tired. definitely a fine tradeoff, and by no means complain-worthy (though i suppose thats what i am doing... just a little) but we haven't been doing all that much adventuring as a result. each day gets better, and we make an effort to get out of the house and keep busy, but its definitely effort and something we are taking day by day.

i have however been making an inspiration board on pinterest of a few things we hope to collect in preparation for the new babe joining us this winter. that's always the really fun part of pregnancy- planning their little space, anticipating what you might need this time around, getting excited about all the itty bitty things that start coming back into the house! we got rid of a lot of finn's old baby things- hunting for treasures was always my favourite part of baby shopping, so i am happy to get to start all over again. we wont be finding out the gender of this babe- we didn't with finn either, but i just felt from the very start he was a boy. with this one, i'm not 100% sure, but i sometimes feel (hope?) its a girl. obviously we will be over the moon with any healthy baby, but a tiny piece of me is hoping (just a little bit) for a girl. we will see! either way, we are keeping things pretty neutral which is kind of my style anyways. here are a couple things we are currently smitten with...

ONE - The Sisters Pillow by Three Bad Seeds || TWO - Pendleton Heroic Chief Crib Planket || THREE - Aden + Anais Bamboo Swaddles || FOUR - Maileg Fox with Scarf Doll || FIVE - Scruffy Rabbit Leggings by Salt City Emporium

finn is three

i cant believe my baby turned 3. i know everyone says this at every single birthday, but honestly- i don't know where the time goes. a lot has happened in this last year, and i can wholeheartedly say it has all been so so sweet.

each year we take a birthday portrait of finn. this year proved to be a pretty big challenge - between him needing to see the LCD screen after each shot to the fact that he loathes getting his hair brushed, it was definitely work to capture this spirited 3 year old. i love these pictures though. to most, these are probably the least perfect of the bunch, but to me, they are a totally perfect memory of what life is like with this guy right now. unpredictable, funny, SO stubborn, but so so kind. sweet, polite and incredibly generous. his life revolves around trains- he loves watching youtube videos of kids playing trains (and semi-creepy old men reviewing various thomas and friends paraphernalia). he loves fancy nancy books, eating cereal, going to the library, skateboarding, cars, crafts, and all his 'best friends'. he loves dinosaurs (though they sometimes scare him), dogs, looking at maps, picking out his own shirts, and playing hide-and-seek with anyone who will oblige. he is a great baseball player and loves being barefoot outside. he says some of the funniest things (that he apparently learns from curious george), loves pancakes, watermelon, and corn on the cob, and is becoming so smart and independent with every day that passes. he is just such an incredible little man and i am so grateful to call him mine. i love you, my sweet boy!
