Bath Time!

First Immunizations

Jacob had his first set of shots last week. I made Darryl come and hold him because I didn't think I could bear to do it myself :(


Tack Room


Tents (11,000 square feet)

For my 30th birthday (early) my folks took me to Calgary to see Cavalia - a show created by the maker of Cirque du Soleil. It is similar, with acrobats, trapeze artists, and trained horses interacting in amazing ways. The show was well worth the trip to Calgary, and Dad and I had a great time at the show and at the stables afterwards.

Well, this month has gone by faster than the first I think. I blinked and June was over. Things have just been moving along so quickly that I have barely had time to stop and consider that he's growing and changing before my eyes. He's actually giggling in his swing in his sleep right now, and that's pretty cute :)

Motherhood continues to be difficult, exhausting, and more worthwhile than anything I've ever done in my entire life. I'm continually amazed by how much I can love another person - what a miracle.

Month 1

The first month went by in a blur. I can't even believe now that it's been almost two months and I'm just starting to adjust to motherhood. It is absolutely the most difficult and most rewarding thing that I've ever done in my entire life and I wouldn't change it for the world. I've never been so tired in my life, but I wouldn't give it up for anything.

Friends Shower, March 27, 2011

My girlfriend Cindy very graciously offered to host a shower for me on March 27th of this year. It was totally owl themed and so much fun. Thanks to all who attended, and especially to Jenn who drove up from Red Deer to be there! A huge thanks to Cindy for being such an amazing friend (and party planner!)


Hooty Cupcakes :)


My dog apparently decided to go from This:
(yes, those are bows and yes, I splurged to have her groomed for the first time in FOREVER)


Money well spent.

Ben, Abbi and Isaac

Taken this weekend while we were at Nate's birthday party. I cannot believe how BIG Ben is getting already. He had lots of smiles for his uncle Darryl :)

Oilers Game

Thanks to some sweet tickets from Darryl's work we enjoyed this weekend's Oilers vs. Avs game. Sadly the Oilers lost (not surprising) but we did manage to see our friend Eric in the intermissions - Good times!

Happy 3rd Birthday Nate!

Happy Birthday to my adorable nephew Nate. We love you!

Muddy Puppy

Apparently hiding under the car wasn't Muffin's best idea. Check out the "reverse skunk" look.
