Feet Continued

When you can't find what you're looking for, you do it yourself. :-)

Last week our feet took us all the way to the Discovery Centre. Its a really neat museum type place on the bay front in Hamilton and my first time visiting too. They had lots of neat exhibits and facts on Canadian history, it was really quite educational for the kiddies and it was pretty just to be down on the water. After we walked over to Pier 4 and the kids played at the park and splash pad. (I went down on the bus with my neighbour, as our car isn't able to fit that many kids). To finish the day we all had ice cream before taking the trolley bus back downtown to catch our bus home. It was a really nice day! :-) Paisley had fun in the beaver's den and swimming with the fish. Don't mind the red-eye in the fishy picture, I was too lazy to edit tonight.

Rowan's been alot happier these days and the smiles are really coming out. She has her fussy times but for the most part she's pretty tolerable now, I'm really enjoying her alot more. She's getting so big too and starting to fit into her fun clothes. In these pictures she's sporting a $1 shirt and shorts I got her a walmart a few weeks ago.

I've been knitting a bit more these days. The girls have been going to bed at the same time for last few weeks, in between 8:30-10pm and it's been quite nice. As the colder weather approaches I think more and more knitting will be accomplished. Rowan's (most nights) is now sleeping all the way through to the morning which is a real nice treat. :-) Only 2 more week and Paisley is off to Senior Kindergarten. She's very excited to be going back so stayed tune for first day back to school photos!!

2 Months Old

On Thursday Aug. 5th, Rowan turned 2 months. It's crazy and hard to believe that that much time has already went by. Unfortunately I have no knitting to share with you but I thought I'd at least post something.
Every time bring the camera out to catch a smile, we aren't so co-operative. Her crying seems a little less excessive these days, but she still cries ALOT. We've went through a few formula changes and she seems alot happier on Isomil a soy-based formula, just the original one without the Omegas because the higher iron was making her poops really hard. She had her 2 month check-up and got all of her needles on the 5th. She is doing great according to the doctor. Paisley also had a check-up and got her 4-6 year booster and she was a really good girl. Both of them are doing well on the growth chart, Paisley's above average and Rowan now weighs 9lbs 7oz and is in the 50th percentile. The doctor said that is excellent considering her lower birth weight. She eats like a tank though, so I'm not surprised. *LOL* I think things are coming along with Paisley as well. She truly does love her baby sister. On a whim Paisley went to my parent's house for a week while they were visiting us this weekend, so Rowan and I get a nice quite week. I miss Paisley like crazy even though I'm sure the break will be nice. This is the very first time she's been up to her grandparent's in Owen Sound all by herself. I guess she's a big girl now! :-) Maybe there is knitting in my future this week??
