Yup, she’s finally here! Miss Josephine Adelyn Yee arrived on October 21st. Two days late; taking her sweet time … like mummy. My delivery was also much longer than #1 at almost double the time, and Jojo is almost two pounds heavier than big sister. I’ll probably be posting sporadically on Project Heart for the next while although I’m trying to brew ideas as I follow along over here this month.
For all things baby and kiddie-related, see here.

#2 isn’t willing to come out yet! I’ve been trying as much as I can to get things done around the house – a bit here and a bit there. I moved my office into the our room a few weeks ago (My desk is right next to my side of the bed!), and have been trying my best to organize and pare down (ie. throw SH*T out). But also I’m just trying to relax, enjoy the added time with only BK (She’s so playful right now!), and also get to some small and random projects that have always been on the back burner.
This is the calm before the storm …
P.S. I’ve been thinking of signing up for Blogging Your Way again (Starts beginning of November). I know I won’t be able to participate and do the assignments like last time, but is it worth signing up just to get all the course material?

Here we are, rolling into mid-week …
October 14th, 2013
I can check off two back-to-back Thanksgiving dinners this weekend with no signs of baby #2 yet still. We’re rolling into the final week now – official due date is October 19th for #2′s arrival. Let’s see what happens this week!?! When? When??
So with two weeks off from work now, and time to get some things done, I figure I should look for a new agenda for 2014. The last two years, I’ve been using a cutesy Pony Brown agenda, but since I’ll be on mat. leave for a good part of the year, I think I will buy something smaller, slimmer, and more light-weight. The Pony Brown agendas are compact, but they are thick and I don’t think I will maximize its use if I’m off from work. (I tend to write in my agenda less while I’m at home)

Here’s a sample of agendas that I’ve picked out:

Hello Coco Monthly Diary (NOTE: This calender only shows a monthly overview with no weekly pages) | 8. Journal, Journey Planner
I think I’m looking at getting no. 2 from the above gallery here – plain and simple next year. Most, if not all of these books come in an “undated” format. I always find it so hard to choose because the photography for each book make them all look so enticing. So neat and organized, but kind of “scrap-booky”, love it!

Rolling into the long weekend with no signs of #2 yet (I can’t believe it?!) so I guess continue as normal as much as possible. I can’t believe I’ve been able to get two weeks off from work now before #2′s arrival (Compared to the unexpected early arrival of #1 last time around!)
Here’s some Friday inspiration to welcome the weekend:
I’m just astounded by the breadth and volume of work that many people that I admire out there do like Geninne Zlatkis. I’ve been following Geninne Zlatkis’ work for a long time now via her Flickr feed –you’ll notice her theme is mainly birds but she dabbles in so many mediums). I only just discovered her Instagrams recently (being a very late newbie), and it’s been so nice to see these pages from her journal (Seeing how I’m not doing that much journaling lately – I’m in need of inspiration to get me going again!) I tacked on the fourth image of an envelope showing her stamp carving work. (She has also authored this how-to book on stamp making called “Making an Impression”). Much more deliciousness on Geninne’s blog and other links if you click through. Enjoy!
