the last few weeks

A few things:
1. May 2nd we celebrated our 6 year anniversary! I am not gonna get all sappy and stuff but I will say it has been an awesome 6 years and I love this guy more than ever! He is the most wonderful husband and daddy and yay he's all mine!

2.Mandy Baker did an awesome photoshoot with Sophie and Grace. We threw the babies into a few pics too but the main focus was these little girlies. They were troopers and mandy was awesome! Check out her blog at 

3. We arrived in Calgary safe and sound! Our apartments are great and the area has everything. We have the LRT, library, walmart and a YMCA within a few blocks of our apartments. The best part is the Wolsey's are right across the hall which we all love. Since we have been here we have been potty training for the last week. Sophie actually took to it really good this time. I say "this time" because this is about round 35.... It's about time is all i can say. We will probably still stay home the rest of the week for the most part but she is doing awesome!!! We even went to Wal-Mart this morning for a few things and no accident! GOOD JOB SOPH!!!! She is giving me the best mothers day present I could ask for.

4. Ella is still as amazing as ever. She is just over 3 months and is the most perfectly contented baby and hardly ever fusses. I don't know what I did to deserve her... She has a good routine down and goes to bed at about 7:00 and only wakes up once a night averaging about 9-10 hours straight a night. I can't even believe how rested I feel in comparison to when Sophie was her age. Kristi let us borrow this little playmat and I am so grateful. I didn't have one of these with Sophie. It is so nice. Ella spends ALOT of time under there. I'm not gonna tell you how long i had her under the other day because I am pretty sure I will sound like the worlds most neglectful mother.

Anyway we are doing good and happy to be here. Spence is soooo busy and I never really see him but I am so proud of how hard he is working. He, for the most part loves being a manager this summer and is glad for the change. There is a lot more to deal with but it's worth it. Uh oh gotta go...  a certain little someone has to "pee on la polly".
