I remember like it was yesterday, having you in my arms for the first time.  I felt elated that you were here, but scared too.  My first baby.  I look at you today and I feel proud of how far we’ve come, together. The older you get, the more I realize how much you and […]


One year old – One last time.

One year since you entered the world, 3 weeks early and all 5 lbs 7 oz of you came out, latched on and gazed around the room. One year since I felt your warm dewy skin and drank in your newborn scent. One year since we excitedly told Elle and Noah that ‘the baby is […]


Five years

To my everything, my sweet little man, the love of my life, my Noah Kingston. Today, you turn 5.  The last five years have been just the beginning of your little life and the very best years of mine.  You bring me immeasurable happiness.  The way you talk, your gestures, your excitement about everything, the […]


Three Months Later…

Has it really been over 3 months since my last post?!  Life is happening.  And happening so fast that I can’t seem to find a minute to sit in front of my computer and type about it. Between going away for the holidays, Chloé catching bronchiolitis (which I could write an entire post about), two […]


This is our time

Even the thought of writing you this letter brings me to tears.  This year is our year together.  The last year before you enter kindergarten and are gone from me all day long.   Our days are filled with walking back and forth, bringing Elle to and from school, morning, lunch, and then picking her […]


Chloé Penelope

Getting up early with Chloé, before anyone else is awake is one of my favourite things. She’s in a fantastic mood in the morning and we usually sit in the living room while I have a coffee and I talk to her while she stares back and smiles and kicks. I’m clinging to these moments. […]



It’s so funny the way things work. I love being a mother and I love my children more than anything in this world. But I feel like a bad mother, like, all the time. No matter what I do, I always feel this way, like I’m not doing enough. Am I talking to them enough […]


To my lovely Elle…

To my lovely Elle, There is no way for you to know fully how much you mean to me.  Simply put – you are everything.  I see so much of myself in you.  When I see you hold back when you are in a crowd and shyly observe those around you – I remember myself […]


Month Three

Chloé has almost reached her 3 month milestone. You know, the one where babies are suppose to be less fussy, sleep more at night, not spit up as much and cry less? Well, I don’t know about all of that but the days and weeks and months just keep getting better and better with this […]


Month Two…

Another month! My new goal is to write at least every four weeks, when Chloé turns yet another month older. I’m finding it very hard to find the time to sit without a baby in my arms. This will have to do. Even as I type, my older babies are still asleep and Chloé is […]
