A Harry Potter Birthday Party {Part 2}

Angie had a ball at her Harry Potter themed birthday party – and I had a lot of fun planning it. If you missed it, take a look at yesterday’s Harry Potter party food post. Don’t you just love a good dress-up party? I couldn’t find a uniform small enough for Rafe, so I painted …

A Harry Potter Birthday {Part 1}

Earlier this year I introduced Angie to Harry Potter. She was hooked from the first chapter of The Philosopher’s Stone and has been living in her own Hogwarts-dreamland ever since. She even sent herself a Hogwarts letter. So, of course, she wanted a Harry Potter themed party for her seventh birthday. It works so well …

Four At Last!

As has become tradition, here is my birthday interview with Emmy. It’s really, really late because, well, there’s a baby in the house. (As I type, the baby is sleeping on my lap because, for reasons unknown, he doesn’t like his cot in the daytime.) My commentary is in italics. 1. What was your favourite …

A Letter To My Four-Year-Old

Dear Emmy, You’re four at last! You’ve been counting down for at least a month now, asking, “Is it my birthday yet?” every few days and giving a big sigh when the answer was no. But today, finally, the wait is over. Yes, sweet girl, you’re a big girl now. You are already so independent. …

{Currently} I’m A Zombie

It’s hard to believe that Rafe is already a month old. It felt like just the other day when I thought that my pregnancy would never end. Now, with one month gone, it looks like I may just survive being a mom of three. Rafe still seems so small, but he has already outgrown all …

On Turning Six

Angie is turning six tomorrow – SIX! Last year we started a tradition of birthday interviews. Here is what she had to say about being another year older. 1. What was your favourite thing about being five? Spending time with Daddy. 2. How do you feel about turning six? Excited! (She jumped up as she …

A Letter To My Son

My sweet boy, Today we finally get to meet you. I can’t wait to hold you in my arms, to see your face and feel your tiny fingers grip mine. For months I have felt you move inside me; gentle flutters at first, getting stronger and harder as you’ve grown and pushed and turned around. …

Interview With A Whirlwind (On Turning Three)

Emmy turned three on Sunday, and since I did a birthday interview with Angie earlier this year, I had to do one with Emmy too. It was challenging to get proper answers from her. She kept running outside to play with the dog. My commentary is in italics. 1. What was your favourite thing about …

Where did my baby go?

Sweet Emmy, You are three today. Three! It seems like just yesterday that we brought you home from the hospital; this tiny thing with a mop of hair. And now, look at you! You’re a whole little person, with opinions, and likes and dislikes, and the ability to reason. (Seriously, every sentence out of your …
