Saigon Sundays: Merry Christmas!

It's been a busy week, as I'm sure most of you can relate to, and I can't believe Christmas has come and gone in the blink of an eye! It's still hard to believe that our next Christmas will include a new, little member of our family. Christmas as we know it will never be the same and we can't wait! As for this year, we kept Christmas low-key while enjoying just how much fun Saigon truly has during gift opening. He's quite a hoot and he never fails to amuse us with how excited wrapping paper makes him. 

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your loved ones!
Love, Brie, Jim and Saigon xo

Saigon Sundays: Top Model

Sometimes, when we are taking  photos to document where I am in my pregnancy, Saigon feels the 
need to be centre stage. This dog loves the camera! I may be biased, but he'd be my top contender on Canada's Next Top Model: Pit Bull Edition! Plus, can this dog rock a mock turtleneck or what?

Hey, Baby! It's A...

Before we ever got pregnant, I always thought I would want to be surprised by the baby's sex. But then, when we found out we were pregnant, I was convinced it was a girl and Jim was pretty confident Baby Fraser was a boy. I knew then, we needed (and wanted) to find out what we were having: Mini Brie or Mini Jim? And it seemed everyone in our family was eager to know boy or girl, so on our 18-week ultrasound, we decided to find out the sex of our little bun.

I had decided from the beginning that the nursery would be gender neutral (no all blue or all pink rooms for this mama), so that wasn't an issue, but my mom and I did find it challenging to buy much in the way of baby clothes when the sex is unknown. Newborn, sure. Lots of yellow and green gender neutral sleepers there. But when you start looking at 3-6 month clothing and older, it's pretty tough to stay neutral. Plus, come on - have you seen the baby clothes out there nowadays? That stuff, boy and girl, is just gosh-darn adorable! I didn't want to wait to start shopping for it! Of course, and I'm sure it's needless to say, but I'll say it anyway, all we really hope for is a healthy baby.

So with that being said...

And we couldn't be happier! Most days, I still can't believe we'll have a little son of our own in just a few short months. And I've accepted that the testosterone in our house will outnumber me 3 to 1. More boys to spoil this mommy, I figure! :)
