Newborn Photos

And just like that, we are a family of three. We had our first family photos taken (aside from quick iPhone photos in the hospital) when Baby N was 10 days old. The girls from Gucio Photography came to our home and were super patient with us as we went through multiple feedings and diaper changes during the shoot. I’m so glad we had these photos taken. We can always look back on them and I think they capture our new reality really nicely. Here are a few (okay, a lot) of my favorites!

Maternity Photo Shoot

It’s hard to believe my due date is just three days away. We think he’s going to come late though – there are no signs that labor is near, and my doctor said it will still be awhile. That is fine by me – I’m enjoying being off work, having leisurely days in the sun, and getting lots of sleep now while I can. While this pregnancy feels like it has gone by really quickly, I can’t imagine my life before this experience – our little Bean is a part of our lives and we have bonded with him and love him so much. Now I’m just ready and waiting… and my only care in the world is that he get here safely and that he is healthy.

Awhile ago, I decided that I wanted to have a few photos taken to capture this special time.  We went to Lighthouse Park in West Vancouver and had a little photo shoot to document my changing body and our changing lives.  Here are a few of my favorite photos from that day. I remember Bean kicking the whole time, I think he liked being in the spotlight:

May 2015 Recap

I haven’t posted in awhile, not because I haven’t been up to anything exciting, but because I’ve been cramming so much in before Baby Bean gets here. Organizing a non-profit fundraiser, wrapping up work (hello, maternity leave!), socializing every chance I can, and getting ready for baby. Plus, the weather has been phenomenal in Vancouver this month, so it didn’t quite feel right to be at my computer when I could be on a patio, at the beach, or having a picnic…

Below is a recap of what I’ve been up to in the last month or so, and what’s coming up on the blog in the near future.
