Time again...:)

As all of you guessed it and most already know, we are preggo again. I'm 3months in already and feeling great. Our due date is July 1st "Canada Day". Ella already know's where Mommy's baby is, she will point to the belly and kiss it. I think Ella will be a great big sister, she's so much of a mommy already! It's so funny, every baby that come into our house Ella right away wants the baby to poop and give it a change. She just loves her little friends (Hudson, Adriana, Hannah and Austin). It's baby fever out there, with so many of my friends with new born's and more to come. I'll be on maternity leave with April (4 months together ) Lindsay (8 months together) Erica and Bryanna will still have time off in the summer. It's going to be so much fun! Will post a baby bump picture soon and will keep you posted.

Hudson Nicholas Besth

On Dec 11th early in the morning my little 8lbs 6 oz new nephew arrived for the best Christmas gift ever. He's beautiful and he's here to stay. He's the first boy on my side of the family of the grandkids. The grandparents are so happy and the new family of 4 are doing great. So thank you Hudson Nicholas Besth for a early Christmas gift to the whole family.

One at a time Ella, good job!

So the last two days for Ella have been big maybe huge milestones for her. All weekend she kept asking me to go poo hies on the potty. So we tried and tried some more, but nothing. Monday came along and she asked again."Poo hies Mommy Poo hie". OK, sure! She looked right into my eyes and she Poo hied in the big potty. I couldn't believe it, I was so happy! She got a sticker and I couldn't stop talking about it at work to my other mom clients. And then it happened again, she poo hied the next night to. Ella got another sticker and her Mom and Dad are very proud. Hopefully it's all a good sign for things to come. It was a moment I will never forget, no joke! haa.

It doesn't happen often but Ella and I where home alone for the whole weekend. David my Dad and Brothers and friends went to Calgary to see the Grey Cup Game. It's always a fun and challenging this to do when there's only one parent around. But Ella and I had a great time together playing and going for walks. We read a ton of books and changed her baby's bum over 100 times, I'm sure of it. She seems to be poophie all the time :) We napped together and made cookies to. I did have to work on the Friday and Saturday and Grandma came over for the whole day Saturday to be with Ella. They had a blast, going to mom's work and seeing the bunny and kitty. And I'm sure Ella made her change baby's bum too. Peeyu! (not sure how to spell that one). We had a good time but ready to pick up Daddy tomorrow and tell him all that we did. I'm sure he has some story's of his own, what would they be?? hmm.

The day started out with a great morning hanging out with my family. I did have to work on my birthday but it turned out to be a great day. When suddenly, I was chatting to my client in my chair and a man in the front yells out..." Is there a Jolene that works here". I was like who is that yelling my name?? Then I saw the dozen roses in his hand, I got flowers!!!. So I waved my arms around yelling back at him...." I'm here , over here". The last time I got flowers was when I got my wisdom teeth pulled..hee. I was very surprised! I first thought it was from my girlfriend Bryanna b/c the writing looked like hers. But once I opened the card , it wasn't from bry .....it was from David??? Love you so much hun but I was sooo shocked. You hate flowers, " they die" remember. It caught me so off guard I had tears in my eyes, then my client started to tear up too. It was a great moment, even thought Dave hates flowers ...he knows they make me happy! Thanks you again babes. xox

Once I got off work and over the shock. We got ready and sent Ella to Nanna's house for a whole night's sleep over. She was so great for them, slept all night and have tons of fun too. Thanks you so much Nanna and Pappa, couldn't of done it without you. xoxox.

So here we go, off to the big city. Something we don't do every often. We got to the Hotel and had another surprise with a nice big room. So all my friends can meet up in the room have some pre drinks, thanks to Dave's mini bar he lugged around in a huge suit case. Got ready for the party to start. We all gathered and had a great little house party of our own in the room. Lots of laughs and story's being told, was so great! Then we all got ready for a very wet walk to the Kingston Bar/Restaurant. I totally recommend that place for the service and the hard work they did for our large group. The food was awesome, and drinks were flowing. And when it flows the camera starts clicking. So the strange pictures of my friends faces is a normal thing on a night out. We have this things where one person holds the camera and the other shakes there heads, it's more funny when you've had a few to many. But it happens so often it was about time I put some on my blog...sorry guys. But when you have my camera it's fair game. xo

It's was a night to remember and I'm so thankful that I have amazing friends and family. I feel very luck to have you all in my life. With all of us in the same way of life, being youth family's that we are. I know how much of an effort it is when you can come out like you did. And all I can say is Thanks and it means a lot :) And Dave you make me so very happy and I'm so thankful to have a wonderful husband and Father to Ella. love you
