Well I haven't been on here in awhile and I thought It was about time for a new web log entry!!! Well there is so much news and story's I have to tell everyone!Well first of all my mom is pregnant and secondly so is my sister!! so I will be an aunt and a new sister around the same time... I guess that means that I will be babysitting for quite awhile
Not only that My Dad will be acting kinda goofy for awhile on account of the new baby! hahah Goofy daddy I know so many other people that are pregnant as well like are pastors Paul and His wife Tammy are two weeks behind my mom! When I heard they were pregnant I thought she ment that they were going to have another child, when my mother asked me if I was surprised, I was like I knew they were going to have another one so not really and then she told me they already were! I was very suprised!!! and they all thought I thought they were trying to get it on how embarassed do you think I was? not only that but pastor Paul not only found out but told the entire youth group! I am perty sure that I turned beet red, luckly It was kind of dark! I was on the verge of falling right off the pew I sat on! But on another note I will be starting school in 2 weeks I am actually pretty mellow about the whole idea, but one thing I have to work on is doing way better on keeping my marks up last year was definatley not good, My mom said that if I didn't try this year woah I would be being chased down by a 2 by 4, I think I'll try. The only thing that scares me a little about going back to school is the fact that I will be going into Gr.11!!!! 2 more years to go and then Bible College! I will be going to CPC in Saskatoon, I fell in love with that school when I went to College connection with my youth group, it was the greatest feeling in the world and once I went I knew that I was supposed to go there, I would like to become a Missionary and a Pastor one day, I will also study English as a Pass into many countries. The places I want to go most is Africa, India, and China, mostly China though, I think I have had a facination with it since I was quite young.But till then I have to go look for a job
most likeley at Mc Donald's , but I have to go now alrighty!!

First Ultrasound

Monday I had my first ultrasound! It was a pretty cool experience, and I can't believe how clear they are compared to 13 years ago....At one point we could even see baby drinking!

We were afraid that there was going to be more then one in there, but as it turned out, there was one. However he/she is bigger then we all thought! and never quits moving ....The tech was having difficulty trying to get a heart rate, as everytime she tried , baby would change position. .I think we might be in trouble! When we tried to get pictures of it, it would present it's little backside, and so the tech had to poke and prod and try some different things before we were able to get a profile shot!

Kendal was just about as funny to watch as the baby, and alternated between smiles and tears.....

By the end of the ultrasound, he wanted a doppler machine of our own!

So....the end result is that we are having a baby! (a rather active one.)

It also looks like they are going to change my due date (again-aprox Feb 7th, but we will know Monday....) as baby is measuring far bigger then thought. They say we are 15 weeks (as of today actually...) instead of 13.

We don't agree....but that's ok, as baby will come when it wants to anyways!

We will post an ultra sound picture when we can figure out how to safely scan it!

Week 12!

Age of your fetus - 12 Weeks week 12

How Big is your Baby
The crown to rump measurement is now 8-9.3cm and the weight of your baby is about 25g.

How big are you
At this stage of your pregnancy you may be needing to start thinking about maternity clothes. You will only enjoy your pregnancy more if you are wearing clothes that are fitting instead of trying to hold on for as long as possible by leaving the buttons undone or the zip unzipped.

Each pregnancy is different, not only between different people, but also between pregnancies. Your body will grow at different stages to different people and previous pregnancies. You may start showing sooner or later than previous pregnancies.

How your baby is developing and growing

By this week your baby's ears are now on the side of his/her head.

The neck will continue to increase in length, and the chin will no longer be resting on the chest.

Genital development continues and it will much easier now to be able to distinguish the differences in the sex's.


just thinking of Maternity clothes....I have already been in them for 4 weeks.

Not much else is new this week though...I am still really really tired....

Most of my morning sickness is gone now although I still have days where I feel nausea.

The heat is killing me. It has been 30 or higher now for weeks.

Monday is my first ultrasound.....YAAAAA!


my friend Chi!


This is my friend Chi from Japan. She lived with us for two weeks while she visited in Canada. We miss her and hope that she will come and visit us soon!

Buffaloo Days Parade

Buffalo Days Parade!

Sat. I brought my girls to the parade. We go every year since we have moved here. We even have our own spot and woe to anyone who dares to sit there!

This year Kendal ended up working...and we were dissapointed as this was the first year that he has ever missed it...

However, right from the start it was definatly entertaining.....We went an hour before it started so that we could get a good place, but we shouldn't have worried this year. It was the only cold day we have had this summer....and wouldn't you know it...for once I actually dressed for hot weather! It was really really windy.....

The first problem we had was that when we parked some woman almost drove her van into us...and then she parked so close that we couldn't open our door...NOT we moved the car somewhere else where she couldn't damage our car door....

The Parade itself was a dissapointment to be honest...It seems every year it is a little bit worse. There are fewer and fewer actual floats and more and more vehicles with advertising and politicians....Pretty soon it won't even be worth going to. The funny thing though, was that there was a crazy lady sitting across the street from us....and she was by far....more entertaining ....then the parade. She was yelling at EVERYONE! The first time we noticed that there was something not quite right was when our mayor....Pat Fiaco went by in a car.....she started yelling at him..."You'de better start doing a good job....You only have one year left and then your gone. You'de better get your act together...." He blew her a kiss! You rock Pat!

Then she yelled at SGI (who probably deserve it...) the girl guides (but at least she was nice to them...oh....and then the RCMP rode by on their horses in uniform, and she told them they were doing a good job in Iraq....

She embarrased some of the PATS Hockey team boys, by basically telling one young man that he was hot....(he went red) and yelling at another one to quit being lazy and get out there and play some hockey!

She stood up and played in an air band all by herself when the Rock Station Mascot went by.....

Anyways, You get the picture....It was very amusing....

BUT that wasn't all. I had Taco with me.... and

taco smiling

He didn't seem to mind most of the parade...until the BC float went by with the growling bear. He was under my coat shaking within two seconds flat!

Taco was almost gettting more attention then the parade!

He was stealing the show. You would think People had never seen a chi before....(and I know there are a ton of them all living in Regina, because we see them every time we go to the park!

Some older man with a video camera came up and asked if he could video tape him. I was uncomfortable, but I let him. He stood there for five minutes....

and every person walking in the parade, had to come over and pet him....(He growled at some of the ones in costume...)

People were waving at him off the floats!

When we went to leave however, I had to stand and wait AGAIN because I needed a can opener to get into my car...and I couldn't imagine trying to crawl over seats pregnant!

The girls abandoned me after the parade in favor of the carnival.....

but that's ok...cause Kendal and I had a date night....

which I am sure will be rare occurances for a while after baby comes....

We went for dinner to a pasta restauraunt called Alfredo's on Scarth..

It was really nice...but I guess I am not much of a judge on food right now....

I didn't like anything I ate.

although Kendal said it was really good. He had Chicken Cordon Bleu...Which I promptly spat out when I tried it....He laughed at me. I had a seafood pasta which made me sick to my stomach because it tasted like white wine to me....(That would be because it was cooked in a white wine sauce.....) I guess I will be sticking to plain old meat and potatos until the end of my pregnancy......(LOL)


Oh....and did I mention that while we were standing there waiting to pay, I dumped pasta sauce all over (You guessed it- My Stomach)

The waitress had to wipe me and the floor off. Real classy Robyn.....

(it was a pretty cool restauraunt though...I will go back when food tastes good again...)

Then we went and played some pool...which made me feel much better when I promptly whooped Kendal's ass. Not once thankyou, but twice.

We gave up on the third game, when neither of us could even sink a ball for 15 minutes......

We went and watched

The Lake House (G)

It was pretty good for a sappy girly movie. Kendal and I both liked it.

Basically I was just impressed because for once I managed to stay awake past 9 PM!

Sunday we went out for lunch to Bonanza with our friends Susan and Dennis. We haven't seen them in two months because they have been gone all summer so that was nice.

Bonanza scares me though.

I got food poisoning the other two times I went there. I avoided their salad bar. Nothing tasted good there either...but with my taste buds being what they are right now? WHo knows.....

(I still like Subway....mmmmmmsubway......)

Oh.....and I forgot.

Today is Kendal's and my tenth anniversary.....

(He phoned and reminded me!) oops......

I was on my way home from work last night, and a great big bear of a dog wandered across the road in front of my car. No owner. Headed towards the highway.

This seems to happen to me ALOT.

So. I park the car, and go chasing after the bear, who for all I know might want to eat me.

Someone else saw me trying to head the bear dog off of the highway, and so they stopped to help me. Between the three of us, we managed to herd it back onto the side of the road. Fortunatly for us the bear was friendly, and submitted to being cornered and petted by all three of us, while we decided what to do with it, since it had no collar or leash.

It was finally decided that since I was headed out that way anyways, I would bring the bear to the SPCA.

Problem 2. How to get the bear to my car. It had no collar and it was bigger then me.

While we were discussing how to do that, the bear decided he had enough of us, and headed BACK onto the highway....By the way, there was heavy traffic, as it was rush hour....

We stood there and called it, and the fellow tried to go on the road to get it, but fortunatly for us, the wind changed, and the dog came back to the side of the road. He had smelled a treasure. Dead Rabbit. Ughhhhhhhhh

It probably saved the dogs life, but ughhhhhhh

First he rolled in the rabbit. (which by the way was full of maggots and various other creepy crawlies....and it stunk)

Then he rolled in it again.

Keep in mind that I am pregnant.

Unhappy tummy....OK...but the girl who was trying to help me almost killed me!

The dog started eating the rabbit and the girl ran away gagging......and every time she came back she would start to gag again.....

I couldn't help it....I started laughing. I laughed so hard I almost peed. Meanwhile the dog kept eating his rabbit and the girl kept apolagizing and gagging. "I'm a farm girl, " she said, "and not even pregnant, but I'm sorry I can't do this!"

Finally, a woman from a kennel across the street came over with a leash and managed to put it on the dog, who looked woebegone because he couldn't keep his rabbit. It was decided that I should still take the dog...only because no one else would offer....nice...make the pregnant women do it.

The kennel lady went to get me a blanket so the dog didn't leave any maggot friends on my seat, when a teenage boy crossed the road.

Thank God it was his, and I didn't have to try to fit the bear in my car.

However, he didn't even bother to say thankyou.

Some people shouldn't be allowed pets.




Krystal e-mailed me this picture yesterday.

She is due now on Sept. 28th according to the ultrasound....

She is doing quite well, except that she is tired most of the time, but then she is working two no surprise there......

Week 11


Your Baby: Week 11

Your baby's organ systems are now functioning and he has a skeleton, nerves and blood circulation. Your baby's tiny feet are fully formed and shaped and could stand on an adult's fingernail. The most critical part of baby’s development is now over, the remainder of the pregnancy is about rapid growth, organ maturation and getting ready for delivery. In fact, your baby grows so quickly now that he will start out this week being approximately 21 - 25 mm or 0.85 - 1.0 inches and by the end of the week will be 44 - 51 mm or 1.75 - 2.0 inches and weight approximately 7 grams! Your baby’s head is about ½ of his body length. The baby’s eyelids are fused now and the irises are developing. Also, your baby will begin to get baby teeth, fingernails, toenails and hair follicles this week, too.


Unbelievable...I am almost through the first trimester, with very little morning sickness, or other problems...I am however...exhausted most of the time..

We were thinking of moving before the baby was born....I think that I will be holding off on that...till afterwards. It is enough to work right at the moment! I can't imagine trying to pack up my house at this point! I have to drag myself out of bed in the morning. I have wanted to call in sick everyday this week so far...but I won't because I will miss enough work as it is between Krystal being pregnant, and getting my teeth fixed, and my pregnancy...

To make matters worse, I dumped water all over my work bag this morning on the way to work...everything is soaked! I should go dry that now.....

Love Robyn!
