And then we were FOUR!

On January 27th 2016, after waiting 12 loooooong days past my due date, we welcomed Mackenzie (Kenzie) Thea into our family!

She arrived at 9:10pm under what I consider miraculous circumstances, weighing 7lbs6oz and (I think) 20inches.

Most of you who follow my blog know that Taylor was born via C-Section and that it was my biggest hope to not have another one. Well hurray I did not need another one and Kenzie was born naturally by the grace of God.

Waiting to be admitted (5ishPM):

Hurray she's here! (9:15ishPM):
 The next morning:

 Meeting big sister (just perfect!):

Snuggles at home!: 

With love.

Testing 1,2,3...

Wow, I can't believe it's been 2 years (question mark) since I last posted. Hoping to start fresh on here  and maybe even do a little backtracking. I will start with what's current and maybe get to the backtracking. It is hard to know.

Well turns out I don't know how to upload pictures while on my phone.

I will be back!

With love.

Stampede Weekend

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer :) Heat waves and all!

The title of this makes me chuckle but it seemed most fitting. We are not actually big fans of the Calgary Stampede even though it is a worldwide attraction. It seems to bring out the scandalous side of people and it breaks my heart that the level of infidelity rises greatly in Calgary during the 10 (?) day event. One day when Taylor is a bit older we will most likely take her to do some of the kiddie things, but for now we just like to enjoy the free Stampede Breakfasts that get put on throughout the city! So, our version of a "Stampede Weekend" haha is taking Taylor to a Stampede Breakfast! Free pancakes and sausage and juice O My! (It is not super thrilling but we did have a fun time and it was just a really nice weekend!)

Ok so Ian doesn't quite look awake yet haha I don't think either of us were but here we are ready to head into the big city (hehe) Taylor was really ready for the day :)

On the drive (gotta love a bad selfie!)

See, a beautiful day!

At the breakfast. She must have been thinking.. "Mom and Dad, this is a lot like every other time I am in my stroller." 

BUT then we went to Petland! (All the pictures that really show her excitement are too blurry because she was showing her enthusiasm, but I assure you she was happy happy!)

That was Saturday and then Sunday we just hung out in the backyard after church but it was still a fun time! 

So these are not stellar photos BUT I am pleased to have captured some of Taylor's firsts :) 

Happy summer! With love.

Half a Year already!!

Hello everyone!

I cannot believe how time flies! It is crazy that it has been 6 months since our little girl was born and we got to bring her home! She has grown so much and is such a bundle of fun. I have so so many pictures but for now I will just give a quick overview of her growth through the months.

Just fresh at home:

And the rest are pretty self explanatory :)

So there you have it. It truly is crazy how fast they grow! There is no other way to describe it.

Hope you are all enjoying the warmer weather! 

With love.
