Day 119

Telus World of Science
Adeline and I went to the Telus World of Science with our Mommy Group today. We watched a show (which Adeline did not last through) and went to Discovery Land to play. The kids had a pretend picnic (see top pic) while the mommies got to hangout and talk. Then we went to the very large piano and the kids to to make some music (which Adeline always likes to do) and then Adeline and I were pretending to be puppets! We had a great time...BIG thank you to Shaena for getting us into the TWOS for free!

Sleeping Baby
I love watching Adeline precious

Day 118

Babywearing Walk
We went on a Babywearing walk today. That means you go for a nice walk and rather than pushing your bebe in a stroller you wear them on your body. This is good for three reasons, keeps Adeline warm, keeps her happy (because she's close to mama) and it gives mama more of a work out (caring around 20+lbs of Adeline on her front or back). Unfortunately it was not as warm as it has been lately, but we still made it and walked for quite some time...slower than we would have liked, but far more exercise than we get sitting on the couch at home ;) Adeline did enjoy the walk (contrary to the look on her face in the first picture)...but her favourite part was swinging on the swings at the park. Half way through our walk we came across a park so we stopped there as a mid point and let the kids play or eat and mamas got to talk and hang out. There were children being carried (or walking on their own) from age 2 months all the way to 10 years and there was quite a one point there were about 17 mamas and 27 kids. It was AWESOME!

*Hey I just noticed...I'm actually in one of my daily pictures for once or maybe this is twice now ;)

Day 117

Sunny Days
Adeline and I have been enjoying these sunny, mild days lately. We have been doing quite a bit of walking and walking in the sun requires us to fashionably keep our milky white winter skin safe from the harsh rays of the sun. Such fashionable duds as the sunny day hat pictured above. I am happy to report that Adeline likes sun hats a trillion times more than she likes winter hats! And as you can see from Adeline's facial expression I can't day she really likes it, but what's more important, she doesn't hate it, and she will wear it (without clawing it off her head or screaming bloody murder when I put it on her). Please get out and enjoy this wonderful weather...I know we will, because who knows how long it will last!

Day 116

Bubbles in the Bath
We have not yet introuduced Adeline to the wonderful world of the bubble bath, but we have let her become acquainted with bubbles while in the bath. Daddy or Mommy will blow bubbles and Adeline will try to catch them in her cute! She loves it. Sometimes she just watches them, others she opens up wide and sticks out her mouth to see if she can catch a big one in there and now she has even started trying to catch them with her hands. Oh the fun and wonder of bubbles has begun, and I am looking forward to it continuing for a very long time...and at least at this point I get to have most of the fun, because she lets me blow the bubbles, for now ;)

Day 115

Eating Like a Big Girl
The other day we bought a bowl for Adeline to eat out of. She has been really enjoying feeding herself lately so we thought a bowl was in order...but the important thing about this bowl is that it has a suction cup on the bottom. This makes it so she can choose her pieces of food, but she doesn't just play with (and dump) the food out of the bowl. She is loving it so far...she loves to look into and choose the pieces she wants to eat and then eat them at her leisure. She IS growing up so darn fast!

Day 114

Adeline's First Easter
Adeline had a fun filled first Easter. We went to Church and Grandma came along too! After her nap, she and Daddy hunted for some hidden Eggs and Easter surprises. She loved finding the eggs and opening her easter basket...she especially liked the book!

Day 113

Jump Jumpin Again
Well, we moved the Jump Jump down to the new and improved basement!!! And it was a hit already! For mom, dad and baby! Adeline played while Mommy and Daddy enjoyed a meal while watching their favourite TV show...The Soprano's!! We are all still lovin the basement!

I needed to add this one:
Adeline likes to jump so hard now that she has to hold on ;)

Day 112

Family Time
We had a great lunch visit with Grandpa, Granma, Aunties Thea and Alisha and Uncle Nathaniel. We had some lunch, played a game (of which the ladies won) and had some fun visiting time...Adeline even had a nap while we were there (gasp). As you may notice from the photos Adeline had a great time reading to Grandpa and playing with Granma.

Hey Adeline, do you like our new improved basement?
What do you like to do in the basement?
What do you like to watch on the new TV?
After you watch TV what do you like to do?
A picture's worth a thousand words!

Day 109

Fun with Lauren's Toys
We had a fun time today getting together with our mommy group and their babies! We were at Lauren's house and Adeline had a blast playing with her fun and new (to Adeline) toys! Especially this exersaucer which had a book about animals and even made animal noises, which Adeline LOVES! If Adeline wasn't on the verge of growing out things like this I would look into getting one from Kijiji.

Day 108

Shopping with Mommy
Adeline was a great helper during grocery shopping this afternoon. She was happy for most of the trip and chose all the best produce. She even sat in the cart like a big girl...and even held on while we were driving around (something she doesn't usually do).

Day 107

In the Pack 'n Play
I took the baby insert out of the Pack 'n Play the other day and I think Adeline likes it. She sits in the there playing with whatever toys I pack there with her. Even though she is not moving yet it is still nice to have her contained. And it is easy to move it from the loving room to the kitchen when I want to make dinner and Adeline needs to be close to her mama.

Talking With Friends
We went to pick up a few things for the house at IKEA this afternoon and when we were on the way home Adeline got a bit fussy so I gave her her photo album. She preceded to flip through the pages, first Jack, then Daddy, then Mommy and then she got to the picture of her Jack and Carter she began talking to the babies, gently touching them and kissing them too. Kris and I just sat in the front seats quietly snickering, trying not to interrupt her.

Day 106

Baked Ziti
Kris and I have been watching a lot of The Soprano's lately and they seem to talk about Baked Ziti A LOT!!! Well today we decided that we would have some of that Baked Ziti for dinner tonight and that is just what we did. Baked Ziti is a lot like lasagna, it has noodles, it has a tomato based sauce, it has meat and it has a lot of cheese! For this baked ziti dish I made you make some meatballs (BTW this was hands down the best meatball recipe I have ever used) and cook them in your pasta sause and you make some ziti noodles and you toss them with some ricotta and mozzarella cheese then you layer and bake. So for Adeline tonight I gave her some noodles and meatballs from before the whole bake stage, without the gravy (that is what they call tomato sauce on The Soprano's...I'm not sure how she felt about the actual taste of the food, as she has not been a very big eater lately), but it was funny to watch her feeling the noodles with her hands and try to get some in her own mouth...we even got one of them on her finger as a ring ;)

Day 105

Teething Trials
Teething with a vengeance continues, but hopefully the end is in sight!! This Adeline's 6th tooth, her top left lateral incisor, has begun poking out and been the cause of much pain on our lives this week. Adeline now has her front two top and bottom teeth and her top and bottom later incisors on the left side only. Which makes me laugh...oh how I love(d) symmetry. Even though she is a little more grumpy and wayyyy more irritable that usual, she is still a pretty happy baby; and she still loves to laugh!

Day 104

The Perfect Nose Bubble
All other nose bubble pictures pale in comparison to this one! This is the one I have been trying soooo hard to get for soooo long! This evening Adeline blew the most perfect nose bubble then Daddy strapped her arms down by her sides so I could get my phone out and ready to take this wonderful picture...please just forget the fact that Adeline looks just a little bit drunk in this photo and take notice of that perfectly round, huge bubble of snot attached to her nose ;)

Day 102

Spring Swing
We got Adeline a baby swing for our play set in the back yard and she LOVES it!  She gets to relax and swing and Mommy gets some yard work done and we both get outside to enjoy the warmer, sunnier weather, it's the best of both worlds.

Day 101

  Clapping Hands
Adeline has been working on many new skills lately, rolling, the beginnings of crawling and coming to someone (well Mommy at least), therefore clapping has fallen by the way side in recent weeks.  Well today we created a renewed love of clapping and it is back with a vengeance!!! It took some encouragement, but Adeline is back to clapping.  She was clapping when she was happy today, when she was sad and even when Daddy was changing her clothes. Oh how I have missed Adeline’s clapping hands. 
Enjoy Our Cutie!

Day 100

Looking at Pictures 
So today I laid Adeline down on the living room floor and proceed to go to the kitchen and make dinner.  It was nice; I could hear her nicely playing with herself on the floor.  I assumed that she had not yet rolled over because lately as soon as she rolls over she gets really frustrated because she cannot roll back and wants someone to help her out.  Well I could hear these sweet little coos coming from her general direction; these noises intrigued me so I went to see what was going on in the living room.  To my surprise I found her, on her tummy looking at a picture of her buddy Jack.  She had in fact rolled over, found her photo album on the floor (had to move to do so), opened up to the page with Jack’s picture on is and was having a little conversation with her friend.  It was tooooo cute! Then she turned the page and started talking to Daddy =)

*100 Days down...265 to go!
