The Baby is Moving!

It has been a exciting week! I felt the baby move for the first time. I have to admit it actually felt pretty creepy!

Has anyone out there seen the commercial where the two Grandpas keep buying bigger and bigger stuffed teddy bears for the brand new grandbaby? Well that sums up the excited grandparents-to-be. Over the last week we have received two parcels from both! I am only halfway through my pregnancy and I think I already have nearly everything we need. My sister in law also sent 2 parcels of stuff my new nephew has already grown out of. We are already pretty damn spoiled!

Work is going good for both of us. It looks like I have about 3 more months of work left before I start my Mat. leave. Matt is also going to take a lot of leave with me. He will be off from mid June to mid September. I am really looking forward to us having 3 months together with our new baby!

And some none baby updates:

Matt was lucky enough to see two wolverines over the last couple of weeks. I think it is time for him to buy a license so he can get one the next time! The poor guy, while chasing the last wolverine, managed to get himself pretty stuck with the skidoo. It took him and a friend an hour to dig it out! Glad I didn't go! We have had no luck with the skidoos lately! Needed a new belt for one and the other one died on Sunday. Looks like we have to replace some chain thingamajig. Luckily the Co-op had the part we needed for a measley $150. Hopefully we get it up and running this weekend.

We are selling one of our machines and we are looking to buy a new two-up. Anyone have one that they could recommend? Right now we have Polaris 550 SuperSports. Not really a family machine. We will keep one of them though- the one that has electric start!

Well I think that is about it! Nothing much exciting going on around here at all!

Have a great week everyone!

Congratulations! Where will you get flown out to have the baby? I have had a great time reading your blog, would you mind if I put a link to yours on mine?

Hi Jen!

Please go ahead and put up a link! I will do the same from here!

We will be going down to Edmonton to have the baby. Mainly because I want to do some shopping! I will be able to shop and then have it trucked to the barge company. I will get everything in late August or early September. I have our plane tickets already booked! My folks also only live about 6 hours away, so they will come and visit as well. I hope these next 3 and half months just fly by!

oooooh! I'm so excited! i'm working on a baby touque for baby Went! It's only mildly creepy with an umbilical cord at the top :D hehe... I like it ! I am hoping to take the month of september off and go on a whirlwind tour of canada, with a visit to y'all up there in the north, but will be sending said hat along in the mail before then... don't want baby's head to get chilly!
much love to all 2.5 of you!
