My beautiful baby girl Camille is born

My wife Grace just finished a marathon it feels like, giving birth to our 7.35 lbs baby girl. Grace didn't use any epidural and was instead using laughing gas for pain management. We came in to the birthing unit at 7pm but her contactions started around 3pm. Thank goodness my mother-in-law is here and Philip also agreed to sleep over to help her look after Kyle. I can't believe how much we missed Kyle as it was the first night we spent away from each other.

We received Camille Kate November 4 2009 at 1:53am at the Surrey Memorial Birthing unit. She came out very quiet at first but was soon crying and I immediately noticed her two dimples on her cheeks. Very nice. She also has a full set of hair already and I know she will be very beautiful just like her mother. I cut her umbilical cord and was very happy with the miracle. I just can't believe my wife's strength for delivering this bundle of joy. You should have seen Grace. She was in a lot of pain and I truly love her for going that.

We spent a night at the hospital just so they could watch over Grace and Camille Kate. I didn't actually get to sleep the night before and was so tired. I went home to see Kyle and we must have crashed at 8pm and didn't wake up until 6a.

I just wanted to get back home and away from any possible flu. The nurse saw us today (turned out to be Jade's ex-girlfriend Rena's mother) and she discharged us. We are now glad to be home. I've got some pictures to upload later so stay tuned.

Mother's Day in Whiterock

Here is a picture my brother Jade took of me and my wife at the Whiterock wharf. We took my mother out to lunch during Mother's day by a Greek restaurant across the street from the beach and then headed out here after lunch in an attempt to walk off what we ate. The tide was low that day and we were able to walk under the walkway for some awesome picture taking. To the right is a picture of my beautiful wife Grace.

Frustrating experience we had with a Honeywell baseboard heater

Here is a review of a baseboard heater for use in your basement if you are in the market for one. I just thought I would write one up because of the hassle I had to go through with my initial choice for a heater. I bought the Honeywell HZ-515C baseboard heater at Canadian Tire for $59 back in August 2008. It was for the basement suite where our friends Gabriel and Natasha are. It worked well for medium to large rooms and was quiet which was a great selling feature. However, by April 2009, the unit had stopped working and I was forced to get it replaced. The replacement warranty was 3 years for these units and it was only 9 months of use. The replacement unit was fine until it stopped working again in March 2010. This was almost a full year of use but I wasn't impressed at this point. I went back to Canadian Tire and wasn't surprised to see that they no longer carry this model. Even if they did carry it, I would probably just pick a different model for the same amount which is w

How I Fixed My In-Sink Garburator

Our kitchen garburator had been out of order for the past few weeks and I thought I would give it some tender loving care this Christmas Holidays because we'll need it. It's a Mainline Model 1900 and has been very dependable for the past 6 years. This happened a few times before and all I did was run a wooden barbeque stick through the serrated edges of the garburator blade to dislodge whatever gunk was in there and that did the trick. It didn't this time and I was ready to spend some money.  I was tempted to call our plumber and have them fix this for me (here take my money) but I thought to myself, how hard can this be. I was also tempted to take the whole thing apart to clean whatever was causing the blade to not spin but I'm sure I would have lost a few fingers or two if I did that. What did work was using something everyone already has lying around the kitchen - a butter knife. Take the butter knife and find the gap in the blade to insert the tip of the kn
