June 19th - Cue the Waddle

Tuesday, June 21, 2011

Back in January we downgraded to basic cable and while it took a few months of grieving adjusting before we stopped asking our PVR to record old favourites like HGTV, TLC, A&E, Spice, Spike, etc. we are now enjoying a lot more tv-free family time. We actually adopted a new rule - now that the playoffs are over - that the television does not get turned on until after 7 p.m. So what am I watching after Saiger goes to bed - if she goes to bed?... 'So You Think You Can Dance' (of course), 'Audrina' (don't judge) and sadly the train wreck of a show more commonly known as 'The Bachelorette' (I secretly can't wait to see Ashley's reaction to Bentley's behind-the-scenes a$$hole comments).
In truth Saige provides more nightly entertainment than NBC, ABC, CBS and Fox put together.
"I am a robot"

Saige hasn't been greatest with bedtimes lately; instead of sleeping, I catch her playing 'baby'...
 
Where she learned "baby needs to calm down" is beyond me (all I know is that Baby #2 is in for a real treat) and her use of "well" as a stalling tactic is becoming harder and harder to rebut. I also love the fact that she now refers to me as Grandma since she's the Mom - let's just say our conversations garner some odd looks when out in public.

Some of their "moments" make me misty eyed.
I don't even recognize the kid in this photo... Saige, where are you?
So we finally took the 45 minute drive to Salmon Arm to check out Jungle Mania. Admission for children 2 & under is $5.50 and parents are FREE which makes it one of the cheapest and funnest activities around... next time we're bringing Caleb-bear.



While we were near Piccadilly Mall, I was hoping to exchange Saige's Tiny TOMS for a larger size, but alas they were all sold out = so disappointing.

So cute and such a good cause - one pair sold, one pair donated. I'm thinking I might order them online instead and get myself a pair in the process ;)

Oh and during our travels we also picked up an IKEA Gulliver crib second-hand for cheap, cheap, cheap... 

I can't wait to paint it some fun non-toxic colour like navy, gray or maybe orange.

We had a lovely low-key Father's Day which started off with a delicious crepe breakfast courtesy of me (nailed it on my first solo attempt), a nice walk to Gram's to meet up with Papa and then we were off to Trev's parents for a big family BBQ with 10+ salads to choose from and twice as many people.

Saiger's homemade cards and questionnaires were a big hit

Papa loved his photo montage despite it being frameless


Trev got a kick out of the "Super Daddy" frame Saigers made him at daycare


It's a Saige sandwich

So I may have jumped the gun a bit in regards to which week this belly and I enter our 3rd trimester; my pregnancy book says we reach that milestone at 25 weeks, but my midwife says 28 weeks and my google search was all over the map. Speaking of maps, vintage maps are my new obsession; I've actually been day dreaming about hosting a "welcome to the world" map themed baby shower for whichever friend gets knocked up first (pitter patter ladies). Anyways, I digress...

"Popped" was definitely the word of the week, I guess that means I'm starting to look how I feel.

25 weeks with an audience
26 weeks - thank goodness the shirt has a zipper
(and boy do I need some sun or blush at the very least)

As we gear up for Baby K's September arrival - and our 3D ultrasound next week - we've been going through a bunch of "old" Saigerella stuff including videos of her...

Who doesn't love baby giggles? especially when it's your baby... I could just eat her up.
