Zoe is crawling!!!

This afternoon after her nap Zoe decided to crawl. I saw her make two steps (crawls?) forward so I grabbed the camera and did my best to get a decent video. I have about 4! Ally was also excited so she would get in on the action.

Wet Girl

Ally loves the water. She could spend hours in the tub or her little pool. Here she is fresh from a bath. Ally is 29 months and we are enjoying her more and more everyday. She is such a fun kid, her language is remarkable and she is starting to play imaginary games. I am starting to really enjoy the terrible twos ;)


We went to the zoo this past weekend and had a blast. Going to the zoo is getting to be a lot more fun with Ally because she is getting to know the animals. She loves elephants and asked to see them many times. She is even starting to act like an elephant.

Zoe - 8 months

Can you believe it? My baby is 8 months! She is coming into her own and showing more and more personality. She enjoys food and wants to eat what everyone else is eating. She was ecstatic the other day when I gave her some finger food. Zoe is also trying hard to start crawling, I think it will be any day now. Zoe also had her shots today and she is growing wonderfully! She is in the 25 percentile and weighs 14 lbs 5 oz.

Here is Zoe showing how displeased she is of the stroller and the fact that she missed her nap.


It has been a crazy month with 3 offers and many showings, our house finally sold! It has been so stressful but it will be worth it in the end. I am sure. As of yet we don't have a place to move into, we are contemplating building. There are so many decisions and options that I am sick of it and can't wait to be in our new home but that doesn't look like it is going to happen soon. Who knows what the future holds? But we are very happy that our house has sold and we look forward to what comes next.

Summer Time Fun

With having to show our house so much and the weather not being ideal, we haven't used our yard as much as we have wanted to. Last weekend we decided to enjoy the hot weather and we bought a pool and invited some friends and family over for a bbq. It was fabulous! Ally loves her new pool and yard, she demands to go outside every day. She also had a blast playing with her cousins and Daymond. We enjoyed the great company of Pat, Alicia, Chris and Leslie. It was a perfect afternoon.

Here is a picture of all the kids on the slide. You will not believe how hard it was to get this shot.

Grandpa's Birthday

On July 24 we all gathered in Didsbury to celebrate Grandpa's birthday. It was a simple but wonderful affair. We all pitched in and got him some wedges and a golf shirt. He is also getting a canoe to take on his summer holidays.
