Pregnancy Can Be Pretty Too October 12, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — oshikagang @ 3:07 am

Thanks to my good friend Shelley, who is a capable photographer, I was lucky to get some lovely pictures of my blossoming belly today! We haven’t been too on-the-ball about taking pictures of all this growth, so it’s nice to have a record of what it really looks like. And thanks to Shelley, it doesn’t actually look that bad at all. She was able to hide the chins AND the stretch marks!

Thank you Shelley, for a great experience!




 

J and the Girl October 11, 2007

When my sister was here, she and the cat became quite enamoured with each other. In fact, J charmed both the kids, and I’m sure they’re excited for her to come back at Christmastime.

Studying marketing:


And she snores too! (the cat, not J, that is…)

 

Showered! October 8, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — oshikagang @ 5:52 pm

Yesterday my beloved friends put on an amazing baby shower to welcome baby, shower us with gifts, and make me feel a little better about my recent ‘expansion’! Alexa, Kerri, and her mom Linda (who travelled out from Alberta!) went over and above to come up with food, activities, decorations, and make the whole day special.

These are the times when you appreciate how lucky you are, you know? I am still aglow.
Thank you to EVERYONE who participated in the event, brought gifts, and made me feel so loved.

Here are a few pics to share the experience:

Cake and decor (nothing could be more appropriate than the umbrella theme; it was raining cats and dogs!)


Everyone painted a onesie, so baby will have personalized outfits made with love!




The living room done up with decor and presents!

Thank you to Alexa and Kerri, who made it all happen.



My little sister ‘J’, who came out from Edmonton:


I’m starting to feel tired and heavy from carrying all this extra weight around. My body is starting to complain – and so was I when I saw the pictures of myself at the shower! You don’t really have a true sense of what you look like until you see photos.
My midwife says “I don’t think you have the smallest baby in the world in there”. Uh oh… I was hoping Asian husband = small baby. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what we get; only another month and a bit to go!
