After spending the afternoon out running errands, I went out back to shovel some snow to bring the BBQ over - it is the end of March and we haven't BBQ'd yet! Highly over due. The temperature is perfect, just the snow isn't!. So I made a path. Tym helped.
We then made a beach with snow from the sand toys we found. Which was fun. Then Tym decided to scale the 3 foot high pile and dive into the backyard. Check out the pictures - she is standing next to our lawn chairs, which you can only see a few inches of! She proceeded to move snow into our neighbors yard. It was cute.
Last night we had a sleep over with Annie - went well until Annie woke up at 5 - and wanted her mama and mom. She Jesse came over - unfortuntaely still no baby, s/he is taking it's time!
Tym slept like crap - she was complaining about a bug in her ear. We I took her to the Dr's on Wed they said her ears were very full of wax and they couldn't see anything, so we've been putting oil in to try and loosen it up. Nothing would help lastnight, the bug was making noise. ( I am assuming there was water in there). So me and her slept off and on on the couch - needless to say she passed out for over a 3 hour nap at 10!
This morning also marked a big day in her growing up. We went to Gymnastics. And she went to class ALL BY HERSELF! I stayed in the viewing area and she went with her class. Weird! She did great. she made it about 40 minutes before she needed to sit with me for a few minutes. But in 1 hour, she was only with me for maybe 10 minutes. My little girl sure is growing up!
She also will not wear any pants that has a button on it right now. Track pants and gym pants only. Oye!

Tym is napping now - as is Annie who is also here for the day as Beth might be in labour. Maybe by tomorrow there will be a new litle bundle in Annie's house! Labour well Beth!
All I have to say, thank god they are both napping - and at the same time! :)

Of course I am back at work and sneezing up a storm. Feels like my head is in vice grip! Of course I get a head cold within a week of being pregnant and can't take anything for it. ARGH!
We called my mom yesterday and Tym told her she was going to be a big sister, mom squealed on the phone. It was good :) Gramma is going to come up and spend Christmas with us this year, which will be awesome.
1 more day then 2 days off!

Holy cow! It's amazing to think that 3 years has already passed since we were in the hospital having you. You've had an amazing and busy weekend leading up to your birthday. Still sick - the fever finally broke on Monday - but quickly got followed by a very stuffy green runny nose. You did somewhat Ok at daycare yesterday, but you are home sick with me today. We went to the doctor and you had a huge nose bleed. What a way to celebrate your day!! And the only thing you want to do on your 3rd birthday is nurse. It's like you are brand new again! Or watch TV of course. It's a good thing it's your birthday!
This morning you called Gramma and told her that you were going to be a big sister. She squealed. It was awesome. And Gramma is going to come celebrate Christmas with us this year. It should be fun.
You can almost dress yourself now (just need a little help with your shirt) and talking a mile a minute. You love all the cut up food you got for your birthday and made mummy a wood sandwich this morning. YumYUM! I am sure it's just the start of many weird things to come!
I am so glad you are growing up and turning into a wonderful little girl. I can't wait to watch you grow more and to make you a big sister :) Every day you make my heart smile like I never thought possible.
I love you Bubble.

Sunday morning we had Tym's 3rd Birthday Party complete with her dolphin cake. She did really well even though she'd been restless the night before with a bad fever. We debated about cancelling the party but with family here.....she braved it very well and only petered out at the very end. Thanks to all who came to help us celebrate - you're welcome to come back and help us finish off the cake!
Once Beth and the kids pulled out to head back to Kitchener, Tym crashed. Her fever kept spiking at 40.3 with only going down 1-1.5 degrees on Advil. She physically looked in pain and was complaining of a headache all day. Last night wasn't much better though it seemed to help a bit that she was snuggled in between Deah and I all night. Deah and I have plans for a date day tomorrow with Tym back at daycare - here's hoping!
And the best news: DEAH"S PREGNANT! She's due December 5th and we couldn't be more thrilled. We'll have the same midwife (Sarah) that we had for Tym and are crossing our fingers for the home birth we wanted before. We had a huge "honey-do" list for the next year that has now been modified into "MUST- do" within 6-8 months and "Will have to wait". Tym will make an amazing big sister!

After running around all day Friday to get everything we needed for the party, decorating all Friday night, The Texans Dirty Thirty was almost here.
Mel was in town this week - unfortunately she came down with a belly bug and was not able to join us for the festivities. Thanks for helping out with the prep! We enjoyed a lovely Family Day at Gymnastics. Meag, Mel, Christa, and Abby came to cheer Tym and I on. Tym loved all the attention and had a fantastic time!
Sat afternoon decorating, and cake after supper - the little one Tym helped me with. She was very excited to help with Mummy's birthday cake - and helping decorate. She was also a dream in going to bed. She slept through the entire party! All 25+ guests, all the debauchery, all the drunkinness. Meag had a blast at the party. She made it till 11:30 this time before she went to the washroom and never returned. Damn Sarah and her every 15 minute shot schedule! Once every 5 years right? Not so bad!
I took Tym out of the house first thing Sunday morning and went to Annie's while her moms went out for an adult breakfast. We decorated Easter Eggs. The girls had a blast. Meag was still sleeping when we got home after 11 - she roused around 12. And was her normal self by supper at Matt and Sarah's. Just in time for Matt's home made Black Forest Cake! YUM!
Pictures will hopefully be uploaded to flickr this evening.
Now we need to get the house ready for this fun filled weekend!! Easter, Beth and crew, and Tym's Party. Oye! Is March over yet??

We were suppose to go away last weekend - but with our babysitters coming down with the chest cold going around, Meag just starting to feel better, and the huge threat of a snow storm - we postponed the weekend until April. Just as well since I started feeling like crap on Sat and couldn't swallow by Sunday. And we got 49 cm of snow in less than 36 hours. It's crazy to look outside!
We enjoyed a lovely family weekend inside just the three of us. Meag made awesome home made granola bars! YUMYUM. It was awesome just to have some low key family time.
We are now starting party swing mode. Meag's birthday this weekend - which I am not postponing due to illness and such - a girl only turns 30 once! Then next weekend a visit from beth and the gang, Easter and Tym's party. Oh my!
It's amazing how much TYm is growing up. She can now dress herself almost entirely. She talks a mile a minute and repeats things a lot. (Some things we would rather she didnt!) She is having a great time at school - even though they are not able to play outside due to the playground being covered in 3 feet of snow! She is very excited about Meag's party and having visitors next weekend. She is still the lovely snugglebug she's always been - which I love. she won't be like this forever right? So I'll take it now :) It's amazing to think she's almost 3!
I am in the process of loading up some pictures on Flickr... Go take a look.

Later that same meal, I told Tym that Annie would be coming over to play. She quickly brightens and announces "Oh good. A full house for me to have my babies!"
More laughter ensued
