"Goodnight Alberta"

We found the book "Goodnight Canada" just a few days ago, and just in time for Canada Day. We already own "Good morning Canada", thanks to Grandma. They are sweet books and I hope our little boy will learn lots about this wonderful country in years to come. I got a little sad reading this to him on the night we bought it when we came to the page "Goodnight Alberta". We miss our family in Alberta so much, especially Auntie Kayla. We love her so much and think about her all the time. She is working so hard for her little family and we are so proud of everything that she does to support herself and her husband! Alberta is being pretty good to her and that makes us happy but we do sure miss her.

summer 2017 with my baby

My heart has so much love for this little boy. He fills my soul with joy. We are both learning so much every single day. This summer is going to be one for the books. I get to spend so much time with my little Haig, making him happy and watching him grow. I can hardly believe he is already six months old. I can remember those first few days of his life so well. We were so worried about how long we were in the hospital, and concerned with his growth and development. Look at him now! He is a beautiful and healthy little boy. I just love when he meets new people and he always smiles at them. He is a social baby and has become very talkative. I have to apologize that my blog as become centered around the life of this little boy, but honestly I just don't know what else to talk about! He is my all day everyday, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

thanks for the amazing photos daddy Haig ;)

Flying Haig

okay where did my baby go? He looks HUGE in this picture. Obviously he didn't care about having his picture taken after church. 
He just wanted to go inside and have some booby for lunch. Nursing has been going so well. I love this new nursing dress from pinkblush !

Family selfies are hard these days. Maybe they will get easier when the little guy can sit up on his own. 
Or maybe that will make things harder once he is on the move. He looks so unimpressed! 
Get this camera out of my face you guys! 

Okay, now there is a happy boy, and a happy dad too. Haig Arthur loves being thrown up in the air. His new hashtag is #flyinghaig 

One of Haig's cousin's said this reminded her of her Uncle Haig throwing babies up in the air. Just keeping up with tradition.

Oh he just loves his daddy so much and looking relieved to be all finished with pictures for another day!

special present

Haig was gifted the most beautiful quilt from a family we love who now live in Utah, the Howards. They moved back to Utah last fall when I was pregnant. Before they left, they gave us the book "goodnight moon", which has become one of our favorites. They were back visiting for the month of June and they gave us this beautiful quilt. I am pretty sure Katie's mother made it and I just love it so much. It is so beautiful and looks so wonderful in Haig's monochrome nursery. It is the perfect pop of colour! I love that this family was still thinking about this sweet little boy months after his birth. We are grateful for their friendship in our lives, even from far distances!

walks with friends

On Wednesday this past week we went for a walk with two of my friends from work and their little girls. We walked on the trails right behind the mall and UPEI. It was nice to catch up with them on a cool morning walk. I made the big mistake of forgetting to bring my stroller pegs for a second seat, so my friend Kendra had to walk her stroller and her dog Murphy and she also accidentally locked her keys in the car after she got her stroller out! Good thing little baby Alice wasn't in the car! About mid walk, Kensley, Alice and Haig were all sound asleep. These three babies are so lovely! Hoping to spend more time with these ladies this summer. I am so grateful to have found such nice friends from my workplace that have had babies at the same time as me!

Haig loves to Play

Haig Arthur has been doing lots of playing lately! He still loves his zoo mat but he is also holding onto lots of his toys. He does really well with his links and also enjoys sucking his munch mitt. He is also on the move just a little bit so sometimes he prefers to lay on his foam mats in the living room as oppose to his zoo mat. He can flip from side to side and do little 180's on the mat. Sometimes he rolls over but still not very often. He can sit up on his own for just about a second but he is so strong and loves standing up at the couch with help. I can't believe my baby will be SIX months next week! Someone stop the clock!

Haig and I wanted to go see Wonder Woman so bad but we knew we wouldn't be able to go to the movie theater to see it. Haig mostly works close shifts until 9:00 p.m and it has been very hard for the baby to go to bed without me. I am super okay with that, it just makes going out in the evenings challenging as I have to be home around 8:00 p.m. The past weekend the Brackley Drive-In was playing Wonder Woman for their first show! We only found out on Sunday, so we did something we normally wouldn't do, and loaded up the car to see the movie. We had the baby all ready for bed and he finished his bedtime bottle shortly before the movie started and fell asleep within the first 15 minutes of the movie. He did so well that I think we will be trying to catch a few more movies this summer at the Drive-In. Such a fun experience for our little family.

boy club

Our 2nd boys club play date was a nice day filled with sunshine and cool breezes. We sat outside with the little fellas and watched them play and get to know each other better. It is always so good to see Stacey and Ashley too and catch up about all things motherhood. I don't know what I would do if I didn't have these girls to come over and keep me sane! Some weeks are crazier than others but hopefully we will all see each other again very soon!
