Father's Day!

How was everyone's Father's Day a few weeks ago? We had a great one over here!

On Sunday Adalyn and I made a big breakfast for Daddy! Pancakes, and bacon were on the menu! We then gave him his was all beer related of course..except for the mug that I made a few weeks ago at our pottery painting class with our baby group. He loved it all!

I found crackers made with beer, beer flavoured chips and a cool  antler bottle opener. I  also framed this cute picture I took of our little monkey:

It is hard to get some good pictures now...she is moving constantly but I thought these turned out cute!

I also made some Father's Day art with my friend Amanda and our babies! Can you see the white frame in the back? Adalyn made that!! With a little help from me of course!

We took our cardstock and some stickers..and spelled out "DADDY" with the stickers. Then we put them in large freezer bags with some globs of paint..and let the babies push the paint around!
 They used their feet too! :) cute is he!?!?
 Our finished master pieces!!! I have one hanging in the playroom too!! When the paint dried we took the stickers off and traced around the letters with black marker!
 Of course we had some time to play too!!! They are getting so big!
 We love our craft days with Amanda and Benjamin!!!

We also love Daddy!  Hope you had a great first Father's Day babe!

7 month Favourites

Hey guys! I haven't blogged in so long! We have been enjoying the weather...getting outside as much as we can! Adalyn is loving it! I have also started my part time job back up for the summer. (two afternoons a week!) 

Adalyn turned 7 months on the 13th! I am a little behind! I still can't believe it though! She has changed so much since the last month you wouldn't believe it! Here she is...looking all grown up!
P.S I thought I would change it up by taking her picture on the bean bag chair we have! She just sat there and relaxed and I could snap some pics! She wasn't rolling all over the place, trying to get up etc. It was very easy this month! I wish I had thought of this earlier! So cute!

7 month stats:

* She LOVES to eat. Cereal, fruit, veggies, cookies, puffs...everything! I have to share every banana, pear and apple now which is great! She also LOVES water and has mastered the sippy cup, tipping it and everything!
*She is rolling, crawling, pulling herself up on things and tries to stand on her own. It is amazing how fast this happened! One day I had to run out and get baby gates! She can move pretty fast now!
* She has started clapping and it is the cutest thing!
* Loves to sleep on her stomach now! Speaking of sleep I have started putting her in her crib for naps now..awake..and it is going better then I thought.

Here are a few of our favourites right now:

1. Addy loves these freezer pops. So far I have only done water but want to make some fruit pops for her!
2. Addy loves these too! Banana in them is her favourite...and I don't have to worry about her choking!
3. This sippy cup is stainless steel, a little bit safer..since there is so much plastic out there. It stays cold longer and the handles are very helpful!
4. Baby Mum Mums are the best! They melt in her mouth and she loves them! We have tried regular, banana, apple and vegetable and she loves them all!
5. I love the baby bullet! I have made all of her food (not cereal) so far which has been nice..I have made: apple, banana, pear, peach, peas, zucchini, squash and  sweet potato. It has been easy so far!
6.We like this adapter set..and it works great because Addy loves water! If we are out and I don't have her sippy cup we can just get a normal bottle of water!!! It is always in my bag!

I wonder what changes I will be writing about it a month!? I can't wait to see!
