I'm Back!!

So I haven't blogged in awhile and it has actually kinda caused me some anxiety. I left my cord for my camera at home so I couldn't transfer my pictures onto my laptop. Kara came up and brought it with her, hence the overload of pics. Well Edmonton has been pretty good lately. It has been hot as can be and without a/c that has not been fun but we are surviving. My sisters came up for a visit a few weeks ago. I loved having them here. We went to the waterpark and it was a blast. Sophie loves her aunts and found plenty of time to give them some good cuddling.





The worst thing!! Sophie got that hand, foot and mouth virus. It's a viral infection that causes you to break out into blisters all over your hand, feet and mouth. The worst part is that the blisters are so bad in there mouth that they can't hardly eat anything. They are saying it is the next chicken pox because they have pretty much vaccinated out chicken pox. It starts with a super high fever for a few days and then the rash comes for a good 4 or 5 days. It is really contagious. Sophie got it from one of the techs little girls. Anyone who has to go through that- brace yourself. I know i am evil for taking a picture while she was in so much pain. I get choked up just looking at this pic.
Sophie loves her new little friends. Haley has been so great with Sophie.. treats her just like a little sister. She loves to push her in her stroller and play with her. It has been sooo nice!!
This little Ava is the cutest, sweetest thing. I love this pic of her. It had been a long day at the park and she was sportin a little bit of a Richard Simmons look.

















The nice thing about being in Edmonton is being so close to home. Sophie and I spent a week there before we even came here. It was so great to be home. I am actually going back on Sunday, which i am really excited about.








I love this picture of SOphie because I think it is Spence to a tee. We are finally starting to see her daddy in her.

Seriously her big blues will make you melt! The pictures are gorgeous, and well I guess it doesn't hurt when the subject is as cute as she is!

That bath picture is crazy with the water splashing. Great picture!

I remember when we had a neighbor girl that loved to take Laurel and Michelle to the park. It was a nice break. Older girls are fun to have around because they love little babies.

She is such a cutie! Glad to see you are getting good use and experience from your new camera. Those are some great shots!! I know what you mean about taking pics when they are in pain or really sad. I took one of Samantha when she was sick a few months ago too.
