hello motherhood

June 5th; It's hard to believe that you were ever this small. Carrying you around for 39 weeks, I had already grown so attached to you. Then the moment I saw you, I fell in love. I was filled with so much joy, but also overwhelmed with fear and excitement.
You were finally here, you've arrived.

my most favourite

it's been a long time coming. (but deep down I always always knew it would be you & me).

Besides labour, I think that the most challenging thing was not having my ma there with me (She had left 2 days before on a business trip to Pennsylvania). I obviously had all the support that I could ever imagined - but not having ma there definitely hit a soft spot in my heart. I had to act like it wasn't eating me up inside, but at times, I just couldn't hold it in. This reminds me, when I turned 13, my ma was alway on business as well. I acted like it didn't matter to me, but I was screaming inside. How could she do this to me? How could she not be there for me, on my special day? I was distraught. I held a grudge. But this time around, it was different. This time, I came to understand. But funny thing, I didn't. I guess it makes me believe that I'm "growing up".

five things that inspire me ...

(1) even though i'm super new to the scrapbooking world, i often preferred traditional layouts and pages versus digital - but now that i've been luring around this site - i may just have to change my mind! but only to hybrid, of course.

(2) ryan. there's just something about his passion for cooking & food that makes me want to create. it's so funny because he comes up with all these idea for dishes and additions to the menu at work (usually at night time) & he jots them down on a pad of paper always handy at the side of our bed. i think he's brilliant.

(3) my 4x6 black ringed sketch book. i love being able to just write random thoughts, ideas, lists, etc.. there's just something about imperfections that makes the book so perfect.

(4) ali freaking edwards. if you don't know her (well, I don't really know her, lol), check her out - she'll probably inspire you too.

(5) & aiden - obviously.

I feel like my life is filled with never-ending to-dos.
doesn't yours?

Sunday is Aiden's baptism.
this weekend can either be smooth sailing OR super duper stressful.
I'm leaning on the super duper stressful end, only because I do feel like I'm a perfectionist. (although I'll never really admit that out loud - but I think I just did, no?)

okay! short, short post. off to feed my baby, then out to withdraw cash & purchase my long awaited square punch.
(making LO and pages are getting a lot easier, I think I'm hoping I can get one published!)

happy friday :)

thursday afternoon

things I plan to complete by end of the day:
(1) get everyone to pay their registration fee for the CIBC Run for the Cure
which reminds me, next year - I'll start the whole process much earlier!

(2) finish my LO of Aiden's ultrasound
I'm having a block with the embellishments, whomp

(3) gather up $3500 in cash for Aiden's baptism on Sunday (excited!)

(4) email professor with group names and student ids
why must I always be stuck with the leadership role?

(5) eat some ice cream

(6) purchase a square punch for my next LO

(7) give Aiden lots and lots of kisses

This is Aiden.
Our baby boy.
