Uncle Rod's

This weekend we went to Uncle Rod's to celebrate Tori's birthday.
Check out my super cute outfit, I love the new jeans!
Enjoying the afternoon sun with Dad and Uncle Jeremy.
Joseph was as cute as ever. In this photo he was working very hard watering all of Aunt Paula's plants.Isabella and I played and danced on the deck while Joseph worked.
Birthday girl Tori opening her presents.Uncle Jon in Tori's birthday tiara. It Looks pretty good on him.
And since it was a birthday party we had cake. I love cake!

Beej Turns 3

The Beej turns 3 this week. We weren't able to make his party, so we got together another day to celebrate.
Here I am with Aunt Katie in the bouncy castle. The bouncy castle isn't a birthday party thing, they just have one. How awesome is that???
Moms are allowed in, but are not allowed to bounce.
Beej was very happy to show me how to bounce. After I warmed up to it I loved it. Especially throwing myself down the slide. There are no photos of that since the photographer had to give up photo duty to catch me at the bottom of the slide.
After a lot of bouncing we needed to refuel with lunch and birthday brownies!Happy Birthday Beej! Thanks for letting us come over to celebrate with you!

I love playing outside on our new front porch.
The front garden is also a favourite of mine to play in. This wheelbarrow is perfectly Lola sized.

Dr. Jon makes me cry

This is why he is normally behind the camera!

Getting ready to go out

Now that I am one going out is definitely more work.
I have to make sure that I am wearing the right accessories.
Make sure that I have my keys.
I couldn't go anywhere without my favourite lipstick.
Okay mom my purse is packed and I'm all ready to go!

Back to Work

Monday was my first day back to work and Lola's first full day of day care. We both did well. Here we are all set to head out on our big adventure.
Lola also brought home her first pieces of art work from day care. We think that she definatly has natural talent!

Chewy is still around! And even though she is a bit slower and sleeps a bit more Lola is still pestering her. One of Lola's favourite things to do is to kick a sleeping Chewy out of her bed.
Sorry Chewy, we really can't control her!


The Etherington's and the Duntgomery's took a trip to Sandbanks.

Here are the ladies and the babies playing in the water.
Lola loved the beach, especially playing in the water and eating the sand. Note the sand ring around her mouth! We had a great time and almost all of us managed to not burn. Darcy was the exception and now the proud owner of a reverse farmers tan!
It was a great trip to the beach, there really isn't a better way to spend a summer day!

This is it!

It has been a good run and I've enjoyed every last minute, but today is the final day of my 13 month maternity leave (yes, I haven't worked in 13 months, how awesome is that???). I'm heading back to work on Monday. If you see me on the subway give me a little hug; I'll be the one with the red swollen eyes and mascara running down her face. I'll do my best to keep the blog up to date, so that you can still keep track of Miss Lola and her adventures.
Lola and I have big plans for today! We are off to enjoy the sunshine and our last day of full time togetherness!

Thanks to you a dinner is served!

For my birthday, rather than gifts, I asked people to bring canned goods that we could donate to the Daily Bread Food Bank.
Here we are dropping off the goods. Thanks to everyone who cleaned out their cupboards and supported a great cause!

The Next Fosse Girl

Big Nana Visit

We went to visit Big Nana in her new apartment. It seems pretty sweet and it has lots of stuff for a little girl to get in trouble with.
Thanks for having us for a visit Big Nana. Sorry if anything got broken!
