I told you all that Lyla showed no signs of rolling over... Wrong-o. She accomplished this awesome task on Sunday, rolling from her back to her front. My sister, mum and I got to witness. It was so amazing...and then I shed a little tear because she's growing up so fast. Gosh I love this little girl. Here's a picture of Lyla after she rolled. I think she's like..."so what now?"

I can't believe it was July 22nd, 3 months from today, that Lyla joined our little family (in a less-than-ladylike way). I feel like it was yesterday, and at the same time it's like she's always been here. I just wanted to post a little list of what my baby genius can do (I just think she's so talented!) I am going to print this right off and put it in her baby book, so I don't have to do it twice. Oh, so smart.

To celebrate, we went to OPA in the city on Saturday for lunch and then got a hotel room for the night. The best part was that we were asleep by 10 pm. We are soooo old. My parents took Lyla for the night, so we thought we'd take advantage of the sleep time (yea, she does sleep thru the night, usually 11-8, but you know, it's not the same as getting away!)
I have a few pictures from our day, but I don't know how to crop and edit, so I'll just post one for now.
Also, Beckey was asking where I was for the past little bit. I went to New Brunswick this past week to show Lyla to her family on my Mum's side. It was nice to get up there, even if Josh couldn't come, but I was glad we went before winter comes. I have some pictures of that too, but I'll put them on facebook.
On Sunday on our way home from the city we went to Stake Conference in Kentville. Afterwards we got some family pictures outside. Too bad it wasn't nice and warm out, we only had time to take a few. Oh wearing a bow, but Josh hid it on us before pictures. Jerk! Lyla's over 12 lbs now, and is about 23 inches long. She can babble like no one's business and giggles (only when Josh isn't around!). She is doing well holding her head up, and before I mentioned that she was going to see a specialist about working on her neck muscles, but I don't think we'll need to once she is assessed (which she hasn't been yet...sigh). Like I said, she still sleeps thru the night, usually 8-9 hours at a time, with 2 naps during the day. She's just so good and I love her to death. I know I am bragging, but I am just so proud of her all the time.
I guess that's all that's going on here. This week I am going to be working on her Hallowe'en Costume. It's a surprise, and I am sewing it, so I hope it actually works out. We're going to be coming to the city for the festivities, so get your kiddies dressed up and come on out with us!

So, as you all know, we went apple picking this saturday. It was so much fun. I was so thrilled to see a bunch of you, my halifax friends. It reminded me that I missed living near you all. Only 9 months until we're out of the valley tho :)

Here are the final details for tomorrow.
It's supposed to be sunny with clouds, 13 degrees.
We're meeting at Noggin's Farm at 12 noon. To get there go on the 101 to exit 11 (Greenwich, Port Williams, Canning). Turn left at the stoplights. They are the first farm on the right. It should take you around 40 minutes to get there (says Josh, I know nothing about timing).
The cost is 8 dollar per adult (12 and over), 6 dollars per child (3-11), and free for kiddies younger than that. This cost covers admission to the corn maze, the wagon ride to the apple orchard, and the barnyard funzone (tunnel slides, tire mountain, hay horses, corn and sand box). The apples are 10 bucks per bag (each bag is about 20lbs). You can also pick your own pumpkins, squash and herbs. I don't know those prices. Sorry.
I think that's all I have to say.
Hope you can make it. We're going rain or shine (unless it's like super super raining and gross). If we don't end up going, we'll post it on here. Or you can reach us on our cell phones 209-2292, or 880-9029.
