I'm a total slacker...really I am so bad at blogging!

Anyway, not much has happened in our lives since my last post, but I'll share the boring details anyway.

So first of all we had a baby shower for Hailey...we had a good turn out and Hailey was a total doll - at least I think she was...I didn't hold her or really see her the whole night. I got loads and loads of really cute things for Hailey - she's one spoiled little girl! Being the first granddaughter on my side definitely has it's perks...I just hope it doesn't go to her head! Here are some pics from the big event:

Mom's playing some game with everyone - not sure which one!

Me and Emily's little guy Roel...and that's Hailey's soother in my mouth - it spends more time hanging out of my mouth than hers
More of the game - and the McVeity's
Yuka (and tummy baby), Sarah, Roel and Emily

Becc and Amy during Mom's game
Oh - and Laura Taylor and her new baby Heidi showed up too...I don't have pics but I just had to let you know how impressed I was. I definitely was going nowhere right after Hailey was born. Gosh even now I have a hard time going anywhere - Laura's a real trooper. So, there's a ton more pics from the shower....but I have other things to write about - so onto the next exciting event:

Then just the next day I wen to Time-Out for Women...an amazing conference just for us gals. It was really neat - even though I spent the majority of the time in the little 'nursing' lounge. I went with Mom, Tan and Sarah on Friday and then Becc took Sarah's place on Saturday. We went for a walk during out lunch break and just proved to the world how weird our family is. I'm just glad we were there on Saturday - cause if it was in the middle of the week I would have seen too many people I know from work and would have been too embarassed to be around these two:
Oh, and here's Hailey all dolled out for the conference...seriously she's such a cutie!

Then, Hailey and me spent a few days just hanging out and getting her back on schedule...those were a few tough days - but she's napping again and sleeping like a pro! And then this weekend Ben's friend James came up and worked on the electrical for the garage and Ben's friend Sheldon came up and installed our garage door. Ok - that's not interesting, but what was fun about it is that Sheldon's wife (and my friend) Chantelle came with her little 8 month old baby Jocelyn. Hailey's first play date! Well...Hailey spent the majority of the day napping and eating, but we did take a few pictures of them at the end of the day:

A little bit of tummy time...I think Hailey sometimes forgets that she's not a frog (especially when she has the hiccups, all she does is 'ribbit')

Jocelyn trying to figure out how she can eat Hailey's hand and get away with it...

Hailey, being the worry wort that she is telling, Jocelyn to sit still for the camera or she might fall...
Jocelyn flashing one of her famous smiles...Hailey giving one of her famous blank stares...
I think we need to work on Hailey's social skills because right after Jocelyn gave her a hug...
Hailey decided to knee her in the diaper...I hope they can still be friends!

And finally here is a picture of Hailey in the cutest little dress ever - she's obviously getting tired of all the pictures I take of her, but seriously she's too cute - I can't resist taking a few shots!!

Meagan, you are so funny! I was laughing out loud at your commentary of the two girls, they are SO CUTE!!!! And thanks for the note about me, i feel so special. I seriously never get to see you because you live sorta far away so i had to come at least to get to see you and Hailey for a few minutes while you were on "my" end of town! Oh and I love the outfit of Hailey at time out for women, can I steal it for our photo gallery since she is in one of our bows!!!! I am so jealous you got to go to that, I wanted to go so bad but I think that might have been overdoing it!

Angie said...

I love all your commentaries as well! Hailey's pic's are so cute, as usual!

Jewel said...

Great to see you (and finally Hailey too) at Time out for Women. She is a doll. Great shots!!!! I know of another great "first" you can take her on...another road trip sort of...it's a cute little town... just 2 hours south of you...!!!!!

What a cutie. I know what you mean about having the soother in your mouth all the time. I do the same thing. I find my self trying to find it and then eventually realizing it is in my mouth.

She is so cute! I love that little dress, and her littel bow for conference! haha
Meagan, you and your fam are all so fun! I love seeing your pictures of you guys all together and hearing about your fun times!
