Ladybugs can swim

Well at least our little Lylabug can! Today Josh and I took Lyla for her first ever swim. We went to a parent/tot swim on the base. She got to wear her cute bathing suit I bought her back in the summer, and she totally rocked it.

I just had to post a picture of this special occasion. We have tons more, I will load them on Facebook one of these days. She did very well for her first time. No noises until we took her out and headed to the showers. We didn't want her getting too cold so we were only in the pool for about 20-30mins. She didn't really splash around like she does in the tub tho. She pretty much had this confused look plastered on her face for the whole time. It was so cute.
This past weekend we also took a trip to Yarmouth to visit Kelly and Rob. We hadn't seen them since, oh it must have been September sometime, so it was nice to hang out with them. We, along with Greg and Jocelyn, all went out for supper to Boston Pizza. It was so nice to get out with friends!
Josh also had today off, which explains how he was able to go swimming with us, and he of course has tomorrow off too. Four days of pure Josh-ness... HOLY COW! (Actually, as I write this he is at the lab at school, so we don't get his undivided attention all weekend, but at least we got a few extra hours.)
I hope you all had a nice weekend. And have a nice day off tomorrow too. Lyla and I are back in the city this weekend and we'll be around until the weekend after. Oh my, how I miss my city life. I love being there, if only for a week at a time :) Hope to see a bunch of you while I am around.

Lyla Ladybug

So this post is way overdue (Halloween was like a whole 5 days ago!) but I wanted to post a few pictures of Lyla in her costume. She was a ladybug, which is totally appropriate because that's what Daddy calls her. This one is compliments of Helene (mon ami extraordinaire). She a wonderful photographer and did an awesome job with Lyla. There are more pictures from the shoot on my facebook. Here's the link to it. I don't know how to make it so you can click and go to it. I am so not computer savvy. And I am lazy and care not to learn.

In other news, today Lyla rolled front to back. So now she's fully "rollable". Though she doesn't have the hang of it yet. After she does it she's like " now?"
Not too much else is going on. I was thinking we were going to make it to the city this weekend since it's a long one, but Josh says maybe not so much. Perhaps some of you could come visit me instead?! The next time I'll be in town is the week of the 16th. I will be around all week and then Josh will come that weekend since it's my mum's b-day. I'd like to throw a random picture in now. This was taken by Grandpa before church on Sunday. He was impressed with his skills. Way to go dad! Oh, and that's the bumbo we're borrowing from J.J. Thanks friend. Lyla loves it.
We had a great time in Halifax last week. Lots of stuff going on. Thanks to my parents for housing us during our stay. I know we're a handfull but we love seeing you! Also I'd like to thank the Petersen's for having us over for Halloween. It was a lot of fun, and there was a ton of yummy food! I always come back to the valley feeling a little empty and lonely since Josh has school but this week so far he's been home early everyday. And he's come home for lunch hour which has been a nice treat.
I guess that's all I have to report on today. I am sure more has been going on, but I just woke up and forget all of my life's events!
