Harvest time.

Look what the Hads and I harvested from our garden this morning:

Mmmmmm. I love fall. And there are LOTS more where these came from!

My little helper:

Not one of her best pictures. The sun was bright okay.

And in other news Hadley is crawling (like a for real boot around the house crawl)!! See:

Yes, we wear our PJ's all day around here. Don't judge.

An ode to summer.

Wow, I have been off the posting wagon for a while now. All I can say is that we tried to enjoy summer around these parts!!

This is what we were up to:

-Swimming - lots of swimming. Anytime it was nice we were in the WATER - pools, lakes, legislature grounds - you name it!

-And swinging - lots of swinging! We have a school park about 2 minutes away from our house and boy oh boy, do we ever frequent it.

-Just hangin' out in the sun (don't worry, baby was out of the sun as much as possible)

-Went to Heritage Days and Taste of Edmonton (our favorite summer activities)

-Frequented the Terwillegar dog park......the Hads and the dogs LOVE the river!!

-Matching pedi's

-Spent many a night/evening out on our outdoor sectional on our new deck......LOVE.

And now that it is over I am already looking forward to next summer.......hmmmm do ya think I should move to a warmer climate or what!? But the cool nights are welcomed! And fall....I love fall. The smells, the sights, the food.

So, so long summer. You were too short and sporadic for my liking. Maybe next year you can bring your A game? Maybe?

7 months.

7 months. I compared these pictures this morning and I cannot believe that my girl is 7 months old. She feels so grown up.

For instance, Dman and I were trying to remember last night when the last time she really cried was. She will whimper when she is tired or grumpy but no full on cries anymore......like the oh my gosh, what does she need cry where it just doesn't stop. That represents age to me....like she's got this life thing figured out.

Recent developments include:
-Talking (indicriminate baby talk) like crazy.
Has added ma-ma (finally!), go, row, whoa, ta-ta, and pa-pa to her vocab
-crawling backwards but not forward yet
-can go from sitting to stomach and laying to sitting
-rides in the shopping cart like a big girl
-eating arrowroot cookies and the like
-16 lbs (25th percentile)
-26.5 inches (50th percentile)
-Don't remember the exact measurement but her head is in the 75th percentile. Ha!
Maybe she is going to be smart....big brain?

And just cause, here is another pic from our little 7 month photo shoot:
