First Movie

Toy Story 3 premiered in theatres this past Friday. On Saturday we ventured out as a family (minus one baby girl) to the theatre. This was Ashers first movie theatre experience.
This expression on Ashers face sums up how he acted the whole time in the theatre....he was pretty much in awe of everything. He sat so well and seemed to love the theatre. I got Asher and Addison some characters from the Disney store in Calgary when we were there last week. We often see Asher kissing Buzz and cuddling him...sometimes he gets Addison's Woody and makes the two of them kiss....I think this is very cute!! We have such loving kids!

Yup, we were the ones with the camera in the theatre. Wes was reassured we weren't the only crazy ones when we saw a flash from somewhere else in the theatre. Yaaah for moms who capture moments on their camera :) (And for dads that cooperate and just smile with our crazy ideas...thanks Big Daddy Gies!)

8 Months Old

Our sweet Abigail is already 8 months old. At 8 months she is waving "hi" more then "bye". She claps her hands lots. She loves to sleep on her tummy and will almost always roll over in her crib when placed on her back. She loves to roll around on the floor and is starting to go into a "hands and knees" position sometimes pushing her little bum into the air. She is eating solid food a couple times a day. Abigail dislikes "cereal/pablum" and loves vegetables. She is kinda hit and miss with her fruit, sometimes she likes it, sometimes she doesn't. We already see little bits of her personality shining through, and yesterday she stretched her arms straight up and had her hands in little fists with her mouth clenched at Papa P. after she screamed in his arms when he held her. Yikes! She is loving all her brothers and watched them in wonder and starts moving/bouncing up and down when they are running around. We don't think it will be long before she is running around after them! This past week she has been waking only 1 time throughout the night (yaaah!) and has 2 naps throughout the day. She makes an interesting laughing sound that sounds like this...."aahhhh ahhhh ahhhh" and her voice sounds somewhat "husky." She also says "mum mum mum mum" (of course she does...she loves her mama!). When in sight of her mama she wants to be picked up, played with or held. She also loves her soother and a blanket snuggled up to her face when she is going to sleep. We are so stinkin' excited to have a little girl! Praising God for her and our other kiddies every single day!

Inline Hockey

Our Aidan is playing U10 Inline Hockey again this spring. This is his 3rd year playing and he is really enjoying it. Wes is coaching his team (one of the benefits of not working shift work) and Aidan is learning a lot from him regarding positioning and teamwork.

One of the benefits of dad being a coach is that mom can come and hang out on the bench and take photos :) Ya, Aidan loves it!

One of his "post-goal" moves...

My oldest boys in action....keep up the great work Aidan!
