:: Baby No. 2 - First Photo ::
:: Here is our ultrasound (well actually our second) of baby no. 2 - there are definitely some similarities with Jacob, but "she" (as Paul says) seems to have smaller less defined attributes ::
:: Here is the ulstrasound - sorry it's such bad quality, my scanner won't work for me! :: :: Now here is Jacob's ultrasound picture - his was taken 4 weeks earlier ::
:: Now here is the two beside eachother for comparison - Jacob's is on top ::
:: Any guesses to the sex are welcome..if you send me your guess I will put it in our guesses file :) ::
:: Jacob had his first "official" haircut last night - He has had about 4 trims since he was born but we gave him his first big boy cut with the clippers last night ::
:: Here he is with all his crazy glory ::
:: "that comb tickles Daddy" ::
:: Almost all done...what a big {little} boy ::
:: Profile Shot ::
:: Daddy trimming up a few missed hairs ::


:: Before & After = Powder Room ::

:: Here are before and after pics of our powder room - I think it looked much worse in real life as the countertop had been painted and was peeling as well as the faucet was falling apart and the wallpaper was peeling - it was horrible, but now I would say the powder room is one of my favorite before & afters! ::

:: The green walls actually look much greener than they are - it is more of a muted ocean green than the colour that shows. Here you can see we replaced the sink, faucet, countertop, light fixture, mirror (a steal from Superstore for $24.00), floors, toilet and my favorite part; the wainscotting that my Dad installed. One thing we didn't replace was the cabinet - we just painted it white to match the wainscotting ::
:: Behind the picture - My Grandma Rosie (my dad's mom) gave this floral picture to me - one of the ladies in her home was giving it away and she thought that I would like it, she was right - I love it! I am not much of a flower girl but when I saw it I thought it would look perfect right over the toilet in the powder room and when we were picking out paint colours I had the picture in mind but it wasn't unpacked so I had to pick the wall colour without it. When we finally found it, it was the perfect colour match - just the right shade of green! I was delighted! ::

:: Our Summer Days ::

:: We went to Douglas Water Park yesterday with Lisa & the girls - we had a great time splashing in the water and playing in the playground - even Grammie & Grampy came by to say hello! ::
:: Jacob & Grampy watching his boat go down the "river" ::

:: Jacob's girl, Emma enjoying the swing ::
:: Jacob's older girl, Madelyne enjoying her "eggs" in the sand ::

:: My Preggo Body ::

:: Here I am with baby no. 2 - I am almost 24 weeks pregnant (which is now made official from my ultrasound on Wednesday - I originally thought I was 10 days earlier than I actually am).

:: My official due date is now October 28th - Yikes, that is getting very close to Paul's birthday on November 4th and then mine on November 11th - Oh well, what a birthday gift to receive! ::


:: Monster Cookies ::

:: This afternoon I made a batch of super monster cookies (actually it was a half batch) - It is such a huge batch...it calls for 12 eggs and 18 cups of oatmeal! ::
:: They turned out great - a half batch is probably enough to make at least 6 dozen cookies ~ Yikes! ::

:: Thanks Rachel for the recipe - Paul thanks you ;) ::

:: Trains Trains Trains ::

:: On Saturday morning we headed out to South Surrey to Art Knapps to visit the trains, plants & birds - Jacob had a great time running {or pretending to} about and seeing what new thing was around each corner! Paul on the other hand had a great time dreaming of the day he too could have a train set up in our home. We had a great time adventurizing around! :: :: Later on that day our neighbour dropped by and brought Paul a box full of model {still working} trains! Most of them are in the original boxes and in super good shape...such a blessing & what a day to recieve such a blessing. Just too perfect! ::

:: Long over-due ::

:: I just realized that with all of the renovations I didn't post any photo's from Mother's day - Ugh! I guess I just had too much going on. So here are some pictures from our Mother's Day Brunch at Fort Langley Golf & Country Club with my Mom & Family ::

:: More Canada Day Celebrations 2007 ::

:: On Sunday afternoon we headed to the Beach with Matt, Lisa, the girls and Aienoa (sorry if the spelling is wrong - she is their student from Spain). We had a great time getting sun, playing in the sand, flying kites and of course enjoying picnic like food! ::
:: Here are some of the pictures from our day ::
