I must admit I did a pretty horrible job of documenting this year in photos. Let’s be honest. It’s pretty Audrey-heavy.
But here it is, in some vague order.
The way things used to look
Shrimp and pesto pasta
My fingers were fine during pregnancy, but my water retention during the first few months post was craaazy, my fingers ballooned into sausages!
Superbowl treats for Greg and co workers
The view from our balcony on a clear night
Studying for a french exam while waiting for a bi-weekly pregnancy appointment. Things I would not recommend simultaneously doing; full course load and pregnancy
It’s always so exciting to watch things start to bloom
Attempting to dry out books and records after the flood…
Term papers that require visual submissions, beautiful
Saxon and Annyong
One by one doctors are replacing my spots with scars. Bye bye freckle.
Basil flowers from our balcony garden
I was so proud of last summer’s herbs, I grew more than I killed, now that’s a record!
I forget I don’t like cinnamon hearts every year…
An impulse one rainy day, the farmer’s market down the road is a beautiful thing
Easter treats for a friend I hadn’t seen in awhile. Jelly beans, mini eggs and strawberry cheesecake muffins!
My favourite breakfast
Scallops seared in white wine, pancetta and yellow peppers all tossed in arugula and baby spinach
37 weeks! It was about now I was regretting not buying any maternity clothes…
The last week of classes for the semester, fitting in desks has become a challenge
All the necessary ingredients for two delicious appetizers: bbq roasted spinach wrapped in goat cheese and prosciutto, and baby bel cherry tomato skewers.
Call everyone, we have a baby! Can I sleep now, please…
Two days old and first day home
Three days old
Our favourite bench to sit and feed the ducks, or just escape from the house on good days
Our place always seems to be in mid-project phase. Oh how I yearn for a work room
Aww Selina Kyle, silly kitten
Freshly gutted and fried caplin, imported from Newfoundland by my parents. Not even kidding. DELICIOUS.
The one part of the dining room that looks pulled together
I love good finds. This $0.99 matches the table runner PERFECTLY, ahh thrift stores
A beautiful fall evening on the way to our little park
Free Comic Book Day! Audrey’s first adventure
She was two weeks old, I mean look at her! All cocooned in there, adorable. And so LIGHT.
Treats from Choco Cafe, a coffee shop that melts real belgian chocolate into their mochas
My view, pretty much all the time. For months. For all it’s natural-ness, nursing is not easy.
Our thanksgiving table
I swear I watched her sleep for weeks. She was so still, I held my breath until I saw her chest rise every time
It would take ten minutes to slooooowly replace your body with the blanket and then hope to goodness she wouldn’t wake when you got off the couch. Ahh the early days
A museum exhibit of nerdiness
So many awesome things at the museum!
First plane trip! She was a champ.
Tiny baby limbs!
Mini lemon meringue tarts
The remnants of a lazy afternoon
It’s never too early to start music education! (Pomplamoose)
Look at those tiny hands…
Autumn is a fantastic excuse to eat more reese’s pieces
Balcony garden has become an indoor pot. Onions and parsley is all I have left
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! I was so sad when she outgrew this one
Late night marmalade making
Blue eyed beauty, let’s go for a walk
Audrey says ‘Mama made my dress and I look adorable!’
My own Charlie Brown tree
The Waverley Inn
New Years at the Waverley
Good bye 2012
