What a GREAT weekend!

Hello All! Sorry, I know that I promised to post sooner, but life got away from me again. As you all know, Everett turned 3 months. Here is a few new pictures of our little man:

He is such a big boy! I am pretty sure that he would crawl if he could hold himself up. He is 25 inches long and 14 lbs 8 oz.

This is a classic example of Everett swimming. He's not really grumpy, but not terribly happy either...

He is one cool dude for sure!

It was our niece Emmerson's birthday on Friday. Happy 3rd Birthday Emmy! Check out the sweet cake Jessie made for her. I helped by advising on color (Hahahaha, seriously)

Brock once again participated in the Lethbridge Rotary Dragon Boat Festival. This is a yearly festival to support breast cancer research and survivors. Brock is the steersman for the local AMA team. This year they jumped up to division B from D. They had a best time of 2 min 30 sec. We are so proud of our team and Daddy Brock!

Our little trooper made it through the entire weekend with hardly a whimper. He was amazing as usual

Growing too fast

My little boy is growing up way too fast. Here are some of the things he is doing now:

-He can roll onto his side and with a bit of help can roll to his tummy
-He sticks his tongue out most of the time, rolling it, flattening it and pointing it
-He can grab toys and pull them, trying to stick them in his mouth
-He has discovered his hands and sucks on them constantly
-He is starting to discover his legs and feet
-He talks ALL THE TIME!
-He giggles and laughs when you tickle him or tease him with his blanket
-He went swimming for the first time and did not lose his mind (Thank Goodness, it was better than bathtime lol)

He is almost strong enough to play in the Exercauser. I am excited for him to be able to use it. I feel bad that he spends most of his play time on his back right now.

I will keep you posted to any other new skills he develops in the near future. Oh ya, and he is going to be 3 months tomorrow, so I will have to take a new picture and post that!

Yay for family and food!!

This weekend, my wonderful family in Calgary threw Everett and I a shower luncheon. It was awesome to get to see everyone and introduce them to my wonderful son. We got many wonderful things, including the ExerSaucer I have been eyeing up since last summer. I am so excited for Everett to be able to use it. Here are some photos:

Cupcakes mede by my cousin Kristi. Thank you for wonderful cream cheesy cupcakes.

A basket full of treats and fun stuff from Auntie Anne, Heather and Angie.

A diaper bear created by Vanessa. Can you believe that she created this on the fly? WOW!

And a diaper cake. I think I will never have to by diapers again. I can't believe the creativity!

While we are blogging and making announcements, it only took us 2 and a half months, but we have officially stopped using a shield to nurse! Mom (the writer) is super proud of her little boy! Here is a cool dude picture to celebrate:
