Abby the Giant

Abby went to visit her new friend Norah on Friday. Norah is just 2 weeks old, and she is so tiny! Abby looks like a giant next to her!

Congrats Dale & Kathleen, she is beautiful!


We went over to Dwight & Tracy's tonight for dinner (it was awesome, thanks guys).

Abby and Josh hit it off quite well, I think we may have a budding romance on our hands.

Josh is almost as big as Abby, as you can see in the pictures, and he is about 4 months younger! Thanks for sharing your toys Josh!


That's all for today. Happy Canada Day!

250 Days Old!

I haven't posted Abby's stats in a while, and since I am a slacker with the baby book, I need to do it on here so that I can go back and look! She turned 8 months old last week while we were away, and she is 250 days old today! I thought she had grown a ton while we were away and I was anxious to weigh and measure her when we got back. Well I did, and she is 15lbs 10oz and 27" which is only 2 oz more and half and inch longer then she was at 6 months old. I am a little worried that she basically hasn't grown in 2 months! And I know that scales are different and stuff, but I weighed her both times on the same scale. She is eating like there is no tomorrow, so I figured it was a growth spurt, but no weight gain. I know she is also more active now, but shouldn't she be gaining a little weight? I know I worry to much, but I am a mum, its my job to worry!

Anyway, she also got 4 more teeth while we were away, so she is no longer "Fang Girl". She has 7 now: 4 on top and 3 on the bottom.

We have also discovered a new "trick" that Abby does. Our camera is set to flash 4 times when taking a picture (for red eye and stuff). No matter what Abby is doing, by the time the 4th flash goes, she is looking at the camera and smiling, even if you aren't taking a picture of her! It is hilarious! And her new favorite toy is a straw, she grabs onto it and wont let it go. I now keep a stash of them in my diaper bag!

Ok, there is your Abby update. The pics are ones that my cousin Shannon took while we were in Ontario.

We're Back!

We had a great time. It was busy, but it was good. We saw lots of Family and lots of sights. We have just under 500 pictures, and I would love to show them all to you, but here are just a few. There are 2 more posts, one for Ottawa and one for Toronto.
J&K - Sorry we didn't get a chance to meet up with you.
West Jet is a great way to fly with kids, they were awesome!
And I have to send a shout out to all of my family, we have way more readers then I thought! It was great to see you all again!
