And Baby Makes Five

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

The Annett family is happy to announce the arrival of Seamus Moriarty Annett on October 18th, 2011 at 5:48pm.  He weighed in at 3780g (8 lbs. 5 1/2 oz.) and measured 52cm long. The birth was an amazing experience.  We chose to have a midwife attend, as with our previous two children, but this was […]

A Photographic Frenzy

Friday, August 20th, 2010

Well, really just quite a bit to catch up on, since life has been busy enough to take many pictures, thus leaving little time to upload them.  Totally understandable. There are many more pictures in the July album, cataloguing a few birthday parties, a great visit from Grandmere, some birthday cakes, outdoor fun, and much […]

Now there are four…

Harry, Miranda and Sophie are proud to announce the arrival of our son/little brother Desmond Odin Joseph Annett.  He was born this morning, January 29th, 2009 at 7:27.  He weighed 3347 g (7lbs 7oz) and was 49 1/2 cm (19 1/2 inches) long. There are a few early pictures up in the gallery for everyone […]

And there were still three…

Monday, December 28th, 2009

So it looks like the majority of people who participated in our baby pool thought that this child would arrive early.  It looks like the majority of people were wrong.  Those of you who picked later dates have much less competition. News will be posted when there is anything to share.

It’s Baby Pool Time Again!

Thursday, December 3rd, 2009

Hello all!  Ziggy is nearing the end of incubation (how near?  Maybe YOU can tell us!).  We have set up an on-line Baby Pool similar to what we had when we were expecting Sophie.  This time you get to select the exact hour and minute you want, so there is no worry about coveted time slots […]

Ziggy on the way

Monday, May 4th, 2009

Miranda and I are “big toothy grin” happy that we have a sibbling on the way for Sophie.  Our little zygote now embryo (ziggy) should be making an appearance in the first week of January (as long as we have calculated correctly).  Sophie will be “big toothy grinning” soon as she is cutting her first tooth.  […]

Spring waiting to spring!

Monday, March 16th, 2009

As I write this I am sitting here peeling grapes for my little daughter.  I have to put this on the public record so that she can feel appropriately grateful for this later in life.  I’ve just returned from a shopping trip at the second-hand store where I picked up THE best sweater for Sophie:  […]

Fall Urges

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Most people spring clean, but I seem to really be getting the urge to purge this fall.  Everywhere I look there are so many things I would like to see get done.  True, it’s always been that way, but maybe it’s harder to take because there is a little one to look after so I […]

Two months old…

Tuesday, September 23rd, 2008

At two months of age our gorgeous Sophie is quite the conversationalist. Just the other day when Mum came over for supper (which she ended up making, more on that later) Sophie greeted her by bringing her up to date on all that has been happening in her little life. She was very sure we […]

Six Weeks Into It…

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

…It being the wonderful experiment that is raising Sophie. She’s been quite the little social butterfly, playing host to poeple from all ends of this country of ours. First to arrive was her Grandmere Rachel from Ottawa. She stayed with us for a lazy week spent trying to beat the heat in Edmonton, enjoying lots […]
