Getting ready for baby = hard work

Chloe is with Grandma (Danielle's mom) in Victoria this weekend. Its serves multiple purposes: one last Chloe free weekend before baby arrives, lots of clean-up, and rearranging our room and Chloe's room.

Chloe is getting a new big-girl bed (its being delivered tomorrow), and the crib (which we had turned into a toddler bed before Christmas) is now next to our bed so the baby can sleep next to me for the first few months. We also took the time to give our rooms a really good vacuum & dusting, and to clean up all Chloe's toys which were spread on her floor.

In addition to this, we're taking a load of cardboard to the recycling depot, some other stuff to the dump, and a whack-load of books we don't want/need to the Salvation Army. We really just need more space, it seems.

Oh yeah! Last night we went (with Jordy and Juana) to Fleuri's at the Sutton Place Hotel for their all-you-can-eat dessert buffet. It was 10-ish kinds of chocolate squares & cakes, crepes, a chocolate fondue fountain, and ice cream and sorbet. We were there from 8:30 to just before 11, and we had an awesome time eating sweets and visiting. The atmosphere was really nice and the food was good. Be warned though, its very expensive, and is not something we plan on doing very often.

Cousins, and being sick

On Saturday night, we had Chloe's cousin Ava over while her mommy went out for dinner. Here's a great picture of the two of them on our fireplace. They both had a great time. While there is still a mild language barrier (Ava is only 16 months old), it was still a lot of fun watching them interact and play together.

That night, Chloe woke up at 1am with a fever of 38.9C. It seems she picked up the cold I had last week. Her fever has since gone down, but now she has a really nasty cough, and she sounds so funny when she talks. We had lazy days yesterday and today, and a lazy evening with daddy as well.

Tomorrow is two weeks to my due date. I sure hope we can get everything ready on time...

Well, here goes

You know, I tried the Live Journal thing a few years ago, and let it fall by the wayside. Really, only my Lethbridge friends knew about it anyway. I'm starting this now in an attempt to keep everyone updated on our lives now that we're going to have TWO kids O.o 2.5 weeks to go to my due date of March 10!

I'm at home right now trying to get over a cold, and Chloe is watching Dora the Explorer. While I don't like "TV" that much, but it sure is a life-saver when I feel as icky as I have the last few days. It's also really neat to watch Chloe interacting with Dora, answering her questions and telling me what will happen/has happened.

Mark is still working making props for Stargate. They're in pre-production for Stargate: Universe, which starts filming soon and will be on TV this fall. Its lots of work, but its also rewarding. I still think Mark has one of the coolest jobs EVAR.
