Squirmy Wormy

I just went down to check on Abby, and this is how I found her, she has been like this the last few mornings, but not during nap time. I've been putting her near the end of the crib now, but I think it might be time for the bumper pads, don't want her hitting her head. And yes, she is in her jammies from last night still. I have been lazy today.

Speaking of lazy... if you know me, you know that I hate to clean, and I don't like cooking, usually because I burn things. Well I am cooking dinner again today, this is getting a little crazy, and I am about to vacuum, and Bri didn't even ask me to do it. CRAZY! I know that cooking and cleaning are things that most people do everyday, but for me, this is big! I have gotten quite lazy since being on Mat leave, I am not to sure how I am going to go back to work. Oh well... better go vacuum.
Have a great weekend everyone!

That's My Girl!

I am so proud of Abby, she has 14 pairs of shoes! Actually 13 and a half, 1 shoe is missing, I need to chat with the dogs about that. She also got her 2nd tooth today!

We've had Dodger staying with us for the past two nights too, it has been a little crowded on the bed!

And I made a roast beef dinner last night, pretty much from scratch! With some help of course (thanks Lori & Megs). It turned out great, at least that is what they told me, I hope they weren't lying!

4 Months Old

I can't believe Abby is 4 months old already! She had her immunizations on Friday, she weighed 13lbs 11oz, and was 24.5" long. She is right in the middle, an average size baby.
Here are some pics from the weekend:

"Just call me Six"

"These boots are made for walking..." picture a tray in her right hand.

All ready for church

Self explanatory. I love Abby's face!

It's a...

Abby got her first tooth on Tuesday night! Poor little thing. It is so hard to see your baby in pain. And I think the second one wont be to far behind. She is growing up way to fast!
I tried taking a picture, this was the best I could get, and I think I was starting to blind her!

Have a great day everyone!

Pics from the weekend

Our Pink Bear

Daddy-Daughter nap time

Hundreds of birds in our back yard on Sunday Morning, a little creepy!

Do you think we need a bigger nursery at church?? They are in the process of renovating it to make it better. These aren't even all of the babies, they were just the ones in there at the time. I think the oldest in this picture is about 9 months old, and the youngest is a few weeks old. (starting on the far left, going clockwise: Carly, Micah, Kassidy, Anna, Logan, Abby)

Just because

Bare Naked

We went to the Barenaked Ladies concert last night. It was great, they are quite an entertaining band. I was worried that they wouldn't do any of their classics, but they did, yay!
I tried taking pictures with my phone, but they sucked, and I don't know how to get them from my phone to the computer.
I remember getting my first Barenaked Ladies Tape, Gordon, from my grandparents. They gave it to me with an article from the Toronto paper on the Barenaked Ladies and the Sally Ann being band from some place in Toronto, I don't remember why now though...

I need Help!!!

I've got a cold and it is nasty! I am on the phone with Health Link, and have been for 20 minutes, I guess they are busy. I thought this might be quicker. Does anyone know of any cold medication that I can take while nursing? Every package out there says to contact your doctor, but by the time I get into my doctor, the cold will be gone. I am past the sore throat stage, into the stuffed up stage, it sucks. I hope Abby doesn't get it... Any ideas?

UPDATE: I just got off the phone with Heath Link.. Their suggestion "tylenol" Thanks Tips! So, I am still up for any suggestions you have

Awesome Weekend

Thank you everyone for the birthday wishes, it was a great day, and it has been an awesome weekend. I didn't have to change 1 diaper on Friday, that was fantastic. Bri and I went to the Olive Garden for dinner, it had been so long since I had been there. mmmmmm...breadsticks, It was awesome! And yesterday, my wonderful husband, and all of his little helpers, threw me a SURPRISE PARTY at the bowling alley! We were out at Superstore and he blindfolded me and wouldn't tell me where we were going, next thing I know I am in a building with loud music, I can finally take off the blindfold and there are about 30 family and friends standing there staring at me! It was the coolest thing ever! We all bowled 2 games and then went to the party room for Pizza and Cake. We had a great time! Thank you so much Bri and thank you to everyone for coming. But it doesn't end there, today we are going to my parents place for roast beef dinner after church. mmmmm.... more chocolate cake!
Thanks again for all of your birthday wishes, and thank you to those who were able to come to my party! I am so blessed with wonderful family and friends. Thank you.
Here are some pics from last night:

Abby's 1st Oiler Game

The band was playing the national anthem at the Oiler game last night, so we thought it would be the perfect time to take Abby to her first Oiler game. I was a little worried, but she did great!
We were able to go underneath where all of the players come in. Steve and Abby and I were just hanging out while the band was doing a soundcheck. I was all prepared with an Oiler bib and a sharpie, but I was such a chicken. The players would walk by, look right at us and smile, but I just couldn't ask for an autograph. Bergeron was even checking me out! Steve saw it too! I am kicking myself now for being such a chicken, stupid me, I should have just asked for their autographs!

Anyway, Abby did great. The first time the Oil scored, the screaming and the loud horn sound scared her, but after that she was fine. She had a little nap in the 1st, and I had to take her for a little walk for part of the 2nd, and then slept for most of the 3rd, even when the Oil scored again! She slept right through the cheers and loud horn! (that's our daughter!) Fernando even had 3 points, he must have known Abby was there. And the Oil won! It was a great night!
