March Wrap up

I was such a slacker this past month. No Craft posts. No Space posts. I honestly just did a lot of relaxing and detoxing. We had a hint of spring that was quickly taken away and now we are back to winter... Boooo! My card for this past month said it's okay to relax, so that's my excuse for being so lazy. I don't regret it so no apologies!
I got Raindrop Therapy with essential oils and a massage, I went to a calming yoga class every week, and I spent a lot of time enjoying my days with Ray

I wasn't a complete bum this month, I have been working on a secret collaboration project with my man. We are hoping to be announcing and unveiling this soon. NO it is not another baby we have been busy making. I've snuck a few photos of what we have been up to into my monthly wrap up photo collage.

I'm looking forward to April. Mine and Josh's birthdays are 3 days apart, this year mine is on the Friday and Josh's the Monday so we will be spending the weekend doing fun family things together.

I hope April brings Spring, I am so over the snow. I want to go play outside!

8 Months!

I love this kid to the depths of my soul. He has come a long way in only a month. He has 2 little teeth poking on the bottom, and he chomps HARD with them! I'm not looking forward to the teeth on the top coming in, ouch! He had some pretty bad teething pain and at the beginning of the month there were 3 days straight of a very unhappy baby. We tried frozen fruits and cold wet cloths, I'm not sure how much that helped. We then bought an amber necklace for him, since wearing this the days have definitely been less fussy plus less drool.
He has also been trying so hard at crawling. Since we have hardwood floors he ends up inching backwards and now he has mastered the art of crawling backwards. He can go from sitting to crawling, and from crawling to sitting.
It was certainly a shock the other morning when I went to wake him out of his crib and he was just sitting there, quietly playing with toys.
He has tried lots of different foods now and I am trying to get him used to more textured food now. This isn't going all that well. But soon enough.
His favourite food is still yams. He also loves apple cinnamon oatmeal, dry toast, apple juice and watermelon.

I love the colourfulness of this months photo, it was honestly a last minute idea for this one and it's now one of my favourites. It's getting harder to think of something different for each month, I normally spend the entire month thinking of what I can do for the next photo. I have a couple of the later months already planned (we will be finally going outside when winter is over!) but I am stumped for the next photo. Hopefully by the end of this month I'll think of something!

March Goose

The goose flies in to tell you to take time to rest and recuperate rather than continuing to strive. It is critical to your health and well being to take time for yourself.
A few suggestions from the goose are to sleep in, get a massage, take a bath or get out of town.
I couldn't have pulled this card at a better time, I need this!
After a bit more research into the goose I came across the saying "what's good for the goose,  is good for the gander". This couldn't be more true! I am interpreting this as - rest for mama is good for papa.
So this month I plan on taking it easy, no deadlines for project's and no making plans any further than a couple days in advance. I plan on using my phone and computer less and spending time outdoors.
The goose also wishes for us to pay attention to stories, myths and legends. So I will also spend this month with Mother Goose by reading lots of childrens books to my little gosling.

I won't worry and patiently wait for spring, happy March!
