A few months back I began working on a small display of photos for massage therapist/doula Anna Belanger’s clinic. It’s a one of a kind establishment dedicated to women in their birthing years. If you haven’t been there, you MUST check it out. She offers pre and post natal massage, labour support, infant massage classes, and yoga. Anna also has many wonderful associates that hold meetings at “the Mother’s den” in the lower level. Some groups have included breastfeeding meetings and birth preparation classes. Although she always has something new going on!

The lovely belly cast you can see in the window is by Ottawa Belly Casts.  They do amazing work!

Anyways, as some of you may remember, I had a polled my facebook fans to help me choose the lucky photos to order up for the display. Sometimes I just love ALL my babies so much it makes it so hard for me to choose! So these were the photos that were selected.

You can contact Anna through her website if you’d like to meet with her. Tell her I sent you! And while you’re there, enjoy looking at those cute baby photos! Open-mouthed smile

I don’t CLAIM to be a great cake maker by any means. But I find it to be so much fun to plan and design these little cakes for my kids. It seems like the more challenging cake they ask for, the more fun it is to try to plan it out. I’ve made a racetrack, a lion, a train, Chick Hicks (from the movie Cars) – I seriously think that was my worst one…but my son loved it, and that’s all that mattered Smile). I’ve made a Hulk (that one I’m most proud of), a ladybug, a beehive with little bees, a sand pail filled with sand and seashells, and now a flamingo has been added to the list. She was sooo excited; it made it well worth it. (Plus we had cake coming out the wazoo!!)

So if anyone is interested how the cake turned out, here are a couple photos from my little girl’s birthday party. I can’t take credit for the photo of her; I had my brother take over the photography duties while I was playing the mom role.

They don’t make them any sweeter than this. This tiny baby girl (only 5lbs plus some) fell asleep as I walked in and stayed that way the entire time! She barely fussed AND, I couldn’t believe it…did NOT pee on ANYTHING. That is just unheard of! As I was just packing up all my goodies she started to become more awake and alert. I took one look at her beautiful eyes and knew I had to photograph those beautiful peepers. So I made a quick set and popped her down for a few more shots. And I’m so glad I did. Her eyes were the most unusual colour I’ve ever seen, almost a blue-brown. I know, it sounds strange, but they were actually a really dark blue-brown colour! Okay, enough talk; introducing sweet little Madrid. (I just love her name too!)

What a cold and stormy day it was to make the drive out to Richmond last week.  But well worth the trek.  This little guy was so alert for a wee 6 day old, I just couldn’t believe it.  I was told he sleeps ALL the time. But he woke up the minute I arrived to set up, and was awake until the moment I packed up to leave. Who could blame him though, so many new things to see! There’s one good thing about a wide awake baby; at least I got a chance to photograph those beautiful blue eyes!

He LOVED to be wrapped up warm. So this gave me the perfect opportunity to try out some of my new hats. Yes, I have been knitting trying to keep myself warm this winter. (It’s a work in progress.)  Winking smile
