Alright well this happened nearly a year ago but we did go to North Carolina to visit his mom and stepfather and his brother. It’s a crazyyyyyyyyyy long drive from here in Ontario let me tell you! But with that being said I didn’t want to drive over there. After being on the highways there in North carolina (which let me say of all the states i’ve been to recently or drove through. This was the worst) I can see why his mom avoided learning to drive there for a while.
So the main reason was to see his brother’s Grad which we attended once we got there.
After that we had to do some Merica’n things of course
Here’s my shooting paper after the ex marine was showing me how to use the S&W.
I’d say you should all take a step back now. hahahahaa.
And I wanted to do some R&R so we drove down to South Carolina to Myrtle Beach
And as you can see BB got to try out grass for the first time .
But I do have a fantastic photographer, so just because of that Here is a few very late photos of her photo shoot. We had to make it look like she wanted to touch the cake. She really didn’t and mommy is quite proud of her first attempt at a Smash cake! It wasn’t perfect but looked ok in photos along with the ‘ONE’ Banner I made her.
Seems I’ve let this go like 10 months. Where did the time go?
I’ve still been KM’ing my house . It’s done but still getting rid of more and more.
I guess that’s a good thing as we might move again for his job. YES AGAIN. Back to where we were … ugh..
Trying to find BB some good quality wooden toys as well more thinking less flash and buttons.
We love Elmo, Sesame street , Blues Clues and her Cantonese. Basically the only TV mommy allows with the odd exception from time to time like the movie UP, which she LOVES because of the talking dogs.
She’s in LOVE with Puppies and Fishies . (We have a dog and several Guppies . Ours had babies. and I’ve graduated to 2 tanks. )
Let me update you on a few BB photos and a few more posts on things in a bit.
This is my beautiful Elizabella at 9 months
10 months. Helping mamama of course with her Diapers. We use cloth most of the time.
We’ve been working on the potty since 10 ish months
She isn’t by any means toilet trained but she does sometimes tell me SSSS when she needs to go. Sometimes.. not always lol
11 Months her and her “puppy”
This month we also stated Swim lessons. We still aren’t a huge fan of water in our face.
This is also the month our obsession started with Shoes and Hats
Soon to update a year and beyond as well as some other things .
I’ve missed posting!
So we are moving out of the GTA area.
I will miss the GTA greatly but its just not logical to stay here for us as housing prices are so far out to lunch us a average Canadians can never afford to buy a place. So hubby’s job
so time to leave.
I will have to commute back and forth in April until I decide what I want to do.
So other than leaving my friends i’ve made (sad) and area I like. There is some good points.
We are leaving a BASEMENT apartment with TINY windows (not good for anyone) and creepy crawlers.
I will miss free laundry and AC.
No bathtub here either.
When looking for an apartment I sacrificed space for location. I didn’t want to be in a bad area with our budget so a bit smaller living space was better. Nice safe feeling area and Dog friendly. Very close to the YMCA too for baby’s soon to be swimming lessons.
We are moving into an apartment 2nd floor that has a bathtub (will need this for baby soon) I CAN NOT WAIT for a hot bath its been over a year of just a shower.
WINDOWS , SUNLIGHT, FRESH AIR. I get to have plants again.
The whole apartment will be newly renovated. NO carpet, New hardwood , ceramic, new stove, new cupboards, small balcony (mmmm I can’t wait to enjoy my coffee on it..or by it since it will be cold by then)
We are 1 door from the laundry room.
No AC will need this still.
But Close parking.
Renovations in Progress 😀
In other news I RE fractured my Toe and then Nash stepped on it.. 😦
This is my Bibi’s first Halloween 🙂
She was getting grumpy in that photo but sure made a cute picture!!
We brought the dog too and she has a skunk costume.
Today we went over to a friends house to visit and see other babies.
She’s never seen so many kids and was entertained the whole time.
other than that not too much Hubby is working and baby is passed out for a much needed nap
I thought I would post a few of our photos we have got back from our photographer (but we are still waiting on more).
Also since I stole the car today I picked her up a few things.
PJ’s for next year
and a cute little bib. I couldn’t resist

I’m going to have to jump a bit around with a few things I miss here and there but at least its my “kinda” catching up
I can not BELIEVE how fast it has flown.
I love that my bibi is a bibi . Do not want her to grow 😦
