Thanksgiving in Cape Breton

This year we spent thanksgiving in cape breton with the conner clan. It was a full house with auntie elisa, grampie conner, monica, chance, dani and baby blake...and of course, the three of us! Mya seemed enamored with her new buddy blake (even though she was so big next to him, she could've probably had him for breakfast):

It was also grampie and monica's first thanksgiving as grandparents:

There was good food, good wine, good people. Everyone had a good time. I would say it was a pretty successful first thankgiving. So good in fact, i think we'll celebrate it next year too! Although, my favorite part of the weekend had to be this:

It's just too cute not to share!

In other mya news: she finally cut her first tooth and it's about time! I've been waiting patiently for this tooth and it has finally arrived! Now we just have to wait for the other 9 or so to come in and we'll be all set! Her crawling is coming along nicely as well. She gets up on all fours and lunges forward but doesn't move her arms. It's very cute to watch and i've tried getting a video of it but some things are hard to get on camera.

Our trip to Alberta is coming up soon! In a little over 2 weeks we'll be on a plane to the other side of the country. I've been obsessively making lists to avoid missing or forgetting something. Lists of things to pack, lists of things to buy before we go, lists of things to remember to put in the carry on rather than checked luggage. I don't think i'm going to like traveling alone with an infant, but you gotta do what you gotta do.

19 more days!
