21 Weeks

The funny thing about blogging is that it feels like everyone knows how you are doing and what you are up to so they never ask:) Anyway, I know I already blogged in the wee hours of this morning but my friend Ali pointed out that I haven't shown my new haircut yet. I guess because I don't look too different, I never remembered to do it. This sounds weird but I'm not sure what's going on with my face...I'm assuming it's pregnancy but my face looks different to me these days. Maybe rounder? Maybe older? I'm pretty confident and always think I look `nice', but these days, I feel a little less nice looking:) Oh well, I just won't look in the mirror. At least I know that my husband always thinks I'm hot, no matter what:)
I took the boys sledding this morning but it was cold. I mean, only -7C but with the wind it was chilly! I wish I could have taken my camera but I didn't want to have to deal with two kids, sleds, my own comfort and a camera. However, they went down head first lying on top of eachother and it was pretty cute:) Maybe we can go with Gary later.

{Kai not happy to have his picture taken because I'm interrupting his practicing. He has great dreams of playing every sport well...}

I'm hoping the roads are okay because we're headed out to skating lessons soon. Kai has done 4/7 lessons so far and I asked him what his favourite part was. He said that it was when they skate around the whole rink. I was so surprised he said that because he is always last by about half a rink length. I'm proud of his perseverance. We go a bit early and last time I asked him if he just wanted to sit down and relax but he said he wanted to practice. He went out and practiced his skating and then gliding while touching his toes. He is a hard worker:)
{21 weeks}
In regards to this pregnancy, I'm feeling good. I've been walking less and my sciatica has gotten better because of that. Not ideal as I feel lazy but fortunately the recumbent bike works by not putting pressure on it. We had two weeks of sugary baking in this house and that is stopping today. If something is in the house, I eat it. My husband loves having homemade cookies in the house so I've always done it for him but I think we'll hold off on it for about 4 more months. Gary says, `Well, just don't eat them!'. Ya right. I've got to get back to those healthy muffin recipes and Gary will just have to `suffer':)

Have a wonderful day!
Love, Louise


  1. You are such a beautiful pregnant woman!! Really,you look great!

  2. looking good!
    it was -25 with the wind chill here today. i drove kids to school, but there is no WAY i'm playing out there. it's nuts. but i totally agree that sledding with two kids and trying to get pictures is quite a feat. sometimes we just have to enjoy the moments and rely on our memory to captures those moments (HARD for us photogs to do that, hey?)

  3. You are a trooper for heading outside to play in this weather. And I like your hair length and Gary is right, you do look good!

  4. you are beautiful! and your bump is too!

  5. I agree, you are looking beautiful!

  6. LOVE the new hair Louise- it looks fabulous!
