When you realize you don't know the surrounding areas that well and one day you decide your an explorer, you end up in stratford.

Stratford is half an hour drive from us. Its known for its modern and shakespearean plays and festivals AND also because the Beibs is from there. Startford is a cute little town with alot of character. The houses and the buildings are victorian looking, and absolutely gorgeous!  Its like a scene from a movie.

We had only ever been there because it was on our way to the beach and we were driving through, but never explored it. So we decided to do just that. 

We just went for the evening, after dinner. We arrived and parked on the main street and headed towards North shore Park.  We walked on a path that went around the little lake there.  On one side it led behind some gorgeous houses, and my mind is still daydreaming of them. 

After we walked around to the downtown area, or at least I think it was downtown.  It was late so the shops were closed but we did stop at little self-serve frozen Yogurt shop called Kiwi Craze. It was pretty good, at least the Caramel flavor I got and the Strawberry one Benji got.  Ruben was pretty unhappy with the vanilla one, but he had some of ours, and so did Jason AND with that, all was well in the world.

Since we were only there for the evening, and because kids like to go to sleep early, we didn't go to all the beautiful places. So, as I look online I think maybe next time we will go see some other nice touristy places in stratford and possibly a play.

So, on with the visuals...

Jason turned 9 months on Monday.  9 MONTHS!!  I cannot believe how fast time has gone by.  (Did I really give birth 9 months ago?)

I am not quite sure how I feel about this post.  Bittersweet, I guess.  That seems to be the anthem of my life. One day you are a mother of one handsome little boy, and the next day you are welcoming another handsome little boy.  It seems like just a little while ago, I was only indulging in my own little selfish pleasures, and now I am all about selfless giving, and to 3 men, intentionally!!  Ahhh life.

In less than a month, Ruben and I will be celebrating our 6 year anniversary. Wow.  Shortly after that, Benji will start school. Double wow!... AND shortly after that, Jason will turn ONE!!  I am baffled by all these milestones and changes.  Life truly is a rollercoaster.

All I have to say is.. Thank you Jesus, Keep them coming!

To Four!

My kids are both 4 and It’s probably the only time that will ever happen.  One is 4 years and the other is 4 months.  Jason turned 4 months and I am loving this stage of his life.  He is the cutest baby boy I have ever seen, and yes I am biased.  I can be. He is mine.

He’s so happy and smiley.  
It's SOOOO Adorbs. 

I love it when Jason wakes in the morning or after nap.  I hear him calling out to be rescued from the crib.  When I go over to him; his little eyes are closed and are struggling to open. After he finally gets his eyes open he sees me, and just gives me the most wonderful and gentle smile.  It’s my favorite part of the day.  (I posted a clip of it on Instagram)

At 4 months he:
-Does not need a haircut. (unlike Benji)
-Holds his head up,
-Reaches for things,
-Sits unassisted for like a minute
-Holds his bottle for like 2 seconds
-Rolls over with some arm assistance
-Screams in the middle of service, making everyone turn to look at me.
-Pulls the baby hairs on the back of neck.
-Tries to eat my face
-Smiles, laughs and plays with everyone.
-Is the cutest wittle babay! 

 Experts say (The expert being my dad. A title well deserved after having 4 beautiful girls *ahem) that at 4 months they begin to say mama or dada. ‘Til this day I haven’t heard a “mama” or “dada”.  So the big question is… What will he say first? The suspense.  I am constantly trying to get him to say at least “ma” but nothing.  Benji said Mama first, and only one time.  After that one and only time it was “dada.. dada.. dada.." blah blah yeah yeah.  I wholeheartedly refuse to believe this will be the case again.   It simply cannot be!  

What do you think he will say first?  
#TeamMama !!
