Picture was taken yesterday when he was feelin’ fine – minus the serious face he’s giving to my self-timer cell phone pic. I was taking OOTD shots for my Pink Blush #MaternityClothes.
Fall Style OOTD + Adorable Alfie pictures
The extend of my Fall decorating: these plush velvet pumpkins I bought years ago at one of my favourite stores back home in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Appropriately called ‘Home’. I whip’em out every Fall and never tire of them. I think they’re super classic looking and definitely go well in our bright white kitchen (although, yes the pic was shown in the bathroom, they’ve since been relocated). I’ve seen other lower quality one’s being sold at less expensive stores (like target and the like) but they’re not the quality that these are. I don’t remember who makes them, since Home carries a lot of independent brands. But I do remember, they were not cheap. YOLO.
I said it before, I think on my Instagram because I’m way more active there than anywhere else these days (IG stories mostly, to keep everyone updated about little Alfie), I think this pregnancy is easy for a reason.
I’m a little distracted, a little preoccupied with all my thoughts right now focused on keeping Alfie happy, and comfortable. Perhaps the baby boy knows I’m going through a lot of unexpected and unpleasant surprises with Alfie’s diagnoses, not to mention our first home, first baby, etc. So many firsts. And to top it all off, we still aren’t 100% unpacked nor do we have a fridge. Again, don’t ask about the fridge…I’m about as frustrated as I can get.
Our days are spent occasionally going for drives, Alfie loves them and has this huge smile on his face when he goes. My sweet little guy. He perked up for half of the day yesterday. Then last night Scott mentioned Alfie didn’t have a car ride all day. Alfie heard those famous words: “car ride” and immediately started smiling and wagging his tail. So at 11:30pm last night when we were all in our PJs we took him for a 5 min spin around the neighborhood and he, at that moment, you could tell was loving life. So happy to see him like that.
Today? It was difficult to get him to eat breakfast (not interested in chicken, turned his head after a spoonful of pumpkin puree – it’s ok Alfie I hate pumpkin stuff too), BUT!! He did eat an egg, which he didn’t want yesterday which was nice. He’ll eat again 3 more times today. We have to start getting creative with his food. We’re trying to keep carbs (although pumpkin has carbs) completely out of his diet, since cancer feeds on carbs. So we’ll see what the rest of the day brings. Keep an eye out on IG stories for more updates on him.
