Vancouver

We had a great trip, it was fast, and we were tired when we got home, but I am really glad we went. The wedding was beautiful, and the reception was amazing. And it was nice to get away, even if it was for only a day. It was funny though, I only started to really miss Abby once we landed in Edmonton, but she was great for Grandma & Granddad.
Here are some pictures of our adventure:

Waiting for our plane in Vancouver:


It was a great weekend, except for me losing my cell phone somewhere between the Vancouver airport and the Edmonton airport. I keep calling it though and no one is answering... So if you have tried to call me in the last 24hrs, Sorry! I don't know where my phone is!

10 Months Old


I can't believe Abby is 10 months old already! The doctors appointment went well last week, they checked Abby over and thought she looked quite healthy, and they aren't to worried. They just want to monitor her, and I am supposed to weigh her often to make sure she is gaining and then go back and see them in 2 months. So I was quite relieved. We have also finally found a dayhome, the lady is quite flexible and part of an agency, so I think it will be a good fit for us & Abby. The thought of leaving my baby kills me though, but by starting gradually I am hoping it will make it a little easier.

We went camping this weekend, it was nice to get away. We played a lot of shang-hi, some Bocci, and went for a few walks. It was quite relaxing.


Bri and I are heading to Vancouver on Saturday for a wedding. It will be my first night away from Abby, but I am looking forward to it. It will be a quick trip, about 26hrs, but it will be fun.

This is how I found Abby after her nap last week:


That is all from Gallitown for now. Have a great week!

Abby Update


Abby is doing well. She is finally growing! YAY! She had been about the same size for almost 4 months, which had the doctor (and me) concerned, she even referred us to a pediatrician, which we go to see on Thursday. But she gained 5oz 2 weeks ago, and 4 oz this past week, so hopefully we are back on track. I think all the ice cream & cake has helped too!
Anyway, she is crawling like crazy now, and pulling herself up to everything which means that we have to babyproof the house, fun times! She also claps her hands, gives kisses, and will blow a kiss to anyone she sees, even on TV, it is quite cute. She also does a few other tricks that I can't really explain, but they are hilarious. And she is now in her big girl car seat.

So there is your update, I'll let you know how Thursday goes, I am still a little worried, but not nearly as much as I was now that she is gaining weight!

I almost forgot this picture of Abby doing one of her tricks:

We're Back... again

We are back from Regina. We had a nice time with Mum and Dad. They have an awesome house. And Regina is a great little city. It was nice to just spend the days doing nothing.

Although we did have our share of adventures. Mum and Dad had to work, so they pointed me in the direction of Wal-Mart & Superstore and Abby & I were set!

We also made our way downtown to see their office and have lunch.

We went to an RCMP Sunset Ceremony one night, it was neat, and we were nice and close to the horses which Abby liked!


Bri arrived on Friday, and we went to Buffalo Days on Saturday.
Abby was tuckered out after winning all of her prizes.

It was a great week. Thanks again Mum & Dad. We are looking forward to many more visits in Regina! And passing crazy stuff on the highway (Only is Saskatchewan!)



Stay tuned for an Abby update there is lots to tell...

Sad and Lonely

I am sad and lonely.

My wife and baby girl have left me.

Chrissy and Abby are in Regina living it up. Shopping, hanging with Granny and Grandpa (Anne and Brian), going to shows and who knows what else. And here I am, all alone, just me and the pups.

I went golfing yesterday. Had the worst round in about 3 years. I am a bad golfer. Should be sent to the corner! haha

I am totally blaming Chrissy and Abby for my bad round! haha


The good news is I get to fly out to Regina on Friday to spend the weekend there and then drive back on Monday. I am looking forward to it!

Please come home family!
