Summer in April

Today was unusually hot and beautiful; it felt like summer in the middle of April. It felt like a good excuse to be outside and make snow cones.

Hospital Life

I love looking back at the hospital pictures from Dayla and Sebastian’s birth. Something about those first days of life feel so precious, so special.

Each hospital stay was unique. For Dayla we were on the “Birth Center” floor. I delivered and recovered in the same room, and we got a queen bed to sleep […]

And Meatball the 3rd’s Name Will Be…

Ginette and I put a lot of thought into our kids’ names. Some would (accurately) say too much thought. I’m talking multiple meetings, collaborative spreadsheets, naming “rules”, etc. Look, it’s a BIG DEAL naming a kid alright?

So what are we naming baby Sundin #3? After much consideration we’re going with…

Yup. […]


For Christmas this year Daniel got me a label maker. I was so excited! I don’t know if baby will be here soon…but I am most definitely in “nesting” mode:

It turns out that it was the perfect gift for a nesting mama.
