Jumping Bean

Aubrey would like to share some jumping fun with her cousin Quinn.

Eating Escapades


"Yummy...I think I like green beans."

"Do I have something on my face? Don't lie. I'm thinking I might have overshot my mouth a little when I was eating sweet potatoes."
"I think I'd rather brush my gums with this spoon than eat carrots. No thanks!"

Mom, I think I'll have what you guys are having...wait a minute...is that curry I smell? Mom, don't even think about it...you remember how poopy I get don't you?

Oh yeah! A break from eating. Look at me everyone! I got a new dress from Grandma Mo! Aren't I beautiful? Thanks Grandma for making me this gorgeous reversible dress! We all love it!

Famous for 30 seconds

I did an interview on Wednesday for Q13 Fox News up in Seattle on knowing your calorie numbers. Check out the video! Have a great weekend!

I want to go outside!

The weather here is beautiful this week but I have been locked up in my office and at the sports med clinic from 8-4 daily. I miss the days when I had summer break! Aubrey seems cagy too this week at day care. She is back to not liking bottles and is starting to get upset when I leave her after my lunch break. It's enough to break a mom's heart!!! My mom has reassured me in the past that she will not be psychologically traumatized by going to daycare. They are doing a great job but Aubrey is getting a little out of sorts lately.

Luckily, Aubrey's friend Natalie got in to her daycare 3 days a week starting last week. She is adjusting nicely and the two girls have had some nice quality time together. Emily and I get a chance to catch up while feeding the girls at lunch which is also really nice.

In other news, Aubrey has advanced to eating green beans and rice cereal mixed together. It's a big mess but she seems to really enjoy it. I'll post some pics soon of her food escapades.

No big plans this weekend. Going for a walk and to the Farmer's Market with some clients on Saturday then hopefully spending some time outdoors enjoying the beautiful weather. Maybe we'll go for a picnic? This has become one of my favorite things to do since becoming a mom.

We're Back!



A road just down the street from Grandma's house!

Hi everybody! We're back from our trip and doing well. One day of work down and one to go until another weekend. Not too shabby. It's about 90 degrees here which is great when you're not at work but not so great when you're at work...especially if your office doesn't have air conditioning like mine.

Below are some pics from Kelowna. We stayed with grandma Bodeux and visited with mom and dad Stephanson. It was great to see everyone and get a few away times for Aaron and I. We were able to enjoy Stromboli's at Boston Pizza, Poutine at Costco, appetizers and wine at Quail's Gate Winery and tappas and wine tasting at the Little Straw winery. Aubrey had a blast meeting Grandma B and seeing her grandma and grandpa S. She had a doctor's appt. today and was cleared of her ear infection despite her continued playing with her ear. Looks like the amoxacillin did it's job. Thanks Mom for administering so many doses while we were in Kelowna!

Hi Guys!

What a stylin girl in her baby wetsuit! Her and her cousin Quinn are quite proud of themselves in their new suits. Thanks Grandpa S!

4 generations together

Aubrey enjoyed her first spoon-fed snack tonight and did very well! She has been grabbing our place mats and cutlery lately and acting very interested in food. It was time to give her a little taste. She seemed very happy to finally get to taste something other than plain milk.
