We went to the "Mall"

So the other day when we were bored we decided to hike it on up to the Greenwood Mall (20 min drive). When we got there I discovered that it wasn't quite as bad as I thought it would be. There is a candy store, and a Bluenotes and a Suzy Shier. Not too bad. Nothing like the city (which I miss, even tho I never went shopping there). Anyways, we came upon one of those photo booths and Josh thought it would be fun. Here are the results of that. Sorry, it's smaller than I thought it would be.P.S It was fun. Poor Lyla didn't know what was going on. I just had to laugh at her expressions.

P.P.S We're coming to the city on Thursday evening. We're blessing Lyla on the 31st in Halifax and I am so excited.

P.P.P.S I have a video of Lyla talking and smiling, but it turned out really dark. Will post better one when I get it.

Very Important

I'd just like to remind all the mum's out there how fun it is to read to us babies. We love it! I am extra lucky because we just moved to the valley and my mum has lots of time to read to me. I don't know if mum is as thrilled as me tho :)
Love Lyla

P.S We have our first playdate with our church friends today. I think it will be lots of fun. It must be a big deal to mum because she dressed me in real clothes. Here's a picture of what I am wearing today. Mum is a loser for taking this picture, and she knows it!

Thanks Friends

I just wanted to post some thank you's to friends who have been really great to us, espcially lately since we're in the process of moving, and with new baby and all...sooo much going on. So here are some thank you's:

Thank you Tanya. The outfit you gave Lyla is going to good use. She wore it this Sunday to church, but you wern't there to see it so I just had to take a picture to show you.Thank you Nancy and Kent. Supper the other night was really great, and Bummy was a fun game to learn (mainly because I didn't loose, yet). Also, thanks Nancy for being so good at Mormon Mouthful, it was awesome being on your team!

Thank you to Kelly and Rob for coming to visit us all the way out here at my parents place (which really isn't that far out of the way, like seriously, 8 minutes from Clayton Park people!). It was nice to have you for a swim, even tho it wasn't very nice out. Oh, and thanks Kelly for the Gumdrop soother. We love it.
Thanks to Aunt Nicole for looking after Lyla so Josh and I could have a date night. You were very good, as if I ever doubted your skills!

And a big thanks to everyone of our friends for just being so awesome. We love you so much and are sad that we have to leave. We'll be back for Lyla's blessing at chuch on the 31st, so hopefully we can see you all then. Also, I'm going to try and be in the city often, I mean really, what else am I going to do with my time?!

I'm leaving you with a picture of our beautiful Lyla. We had some fun with a pink ribbon the other day and just had to capture the moment. I loved this picture because of the cute face she is making. It's like "who? me?". I just love her. More of the pictures from this are on facebook.
Oh, one more thing before I go. We went to Peggy's Cove the other day for something to do and um, can I just say that it's not stroller friendly. I don't know why I thought it would be but whatever. I accidentally packed my Snuggli carrier (from Kristine, thanks!) so it's in the valley, waiting to be used. Anyways, it was a nice trip out, and Josh took some amazing pictures. This one is our favourite. P.S It's nicer when you see it on a big screen.I am so proud of him for learning how to use the camera :) This one didn't need to be edited or anything. Good job hon. Ok, I'm done. Bye.

So cute

So, you know how everyone thinks that their baby is the cutest thing ever? Well I am totally one of those people. I am a total mum, and I love it. I can even find something to love about Lyla when she is crying (which doesn't happen often because Heavenly Father knew I couldn't handle it!)

Seriously, Josh and I are so blessed to have Lyla in our family. We lucked out with one sweet baby, and we can't get over how much we love her more and more every day.
Here's a little picture of our cutie. Side note: thanks to Kelly for the soother.
Anyways, I know I've been slacking with the posts, but I just want to keep holding baby in my arms, so there isn't any time for anything else. Hope you are all doing well. Can't wait for summer to be over (kinda) so all of our friends will be back from vacation. We miss you :)
