A Whole New World...

It's a new chapter.

I have not updated my blog as of late for many reasons. I have been adjusting to many changes in my life, the biggest one being my husband and I separating. This has been a huge adjustmnet period, but I believe has been a very healthy change for both of us. He has moved on to a new career and seems positive, and I have bought a little condo for Hunter and I near my work and her daycare. I love it. It is small, but big enough for the two of us. It is funky and has a lot of character. I am looking forward to making it a happy home for Hunter and I.

I love my neighbourhood. Everything is within walking distance, and the Quay and lots of great parks are really close. I have 3 days left of school, and then I have 2 months off to enjoy time with my daughter. I am so excited to get some free time:)

Hunter's 1st trip to the Beach!

Recently, I went with some friends to Sandy Cove, which was great timing, as Hunter was just given some new beach toys for her birthday. She had a great time dipping her toes in the water, and digging around in the sand. She loved filling up her pail with small rocks, and dumping them out again. Of course mommy could not resist some photos!

Snack Time!!!!!!!!!!

1 Year...Can you believe it?

I am officially the mother of a 1 year old. This past year has been full of so many ups and downs, changes and craziness. As I write this, I am at peace, knowing that my beautiful happy daughter loves to smile, laugh and play, and is very much loved. I love you Hunter...with all my heart.

My water baby....

I can't believe I will be back at work in 6 weeks. My mat leave has gone by so fast. I will miss being with my little girl every day! I am fortunate that I will have great daycare. One of the parents of former students at the school I work at takes care of some of the staff members children. She only does it for a couple of them, and she is amazing. She brings them by the school for special events, to play on the playground, and for lunch time visits. It will make me feel less nervous having Hunter so close. And, I know all the children that she will be with, as they are the children of my co-workers. As soon as I got pregnant, I pretty much ran to this woman to make sure she would have room....lucky me! And her rates are very reasonable too.

We have been taking Hunter swimming at the pool quite a bit lately...she loves it. She is definitely a water baby:) But then we knew that at 6 weeks when we started having baths with her.....we have never used her baby tub as she enjoyed the bath too much!

Dusten is going to start swimming lessons with her in January.
