Mommy Friends

I signed up for Baby Steps, a program offered by the health unit, a week after London was born. Our pre-natal classes instructor told us it filled up fast and I wanted to meet other mommy friends!

Baby Steps was awesome! We started classes when London was four weeks old and learned about everything from sleeping habits to what to do when your baby gets sick to the benefits of making your own baby food. The best thing about the class was just interacting with other mommy's and chatting about our experiences as new moms.

After Baby Steps, London and I joined another mommy group called "Mommy Connections." Most of my friends from Baby Steps did too and I also ended up meeting two other awesome ladies (Amy and Tawyna!)

When that class ended, a few of us signed up for stroller fitness class and ended up going for about four months. Now that the weather is nicer, we get together and do our own fitness thing twice a week. 

We also get together once a month for a social event. We all throw 20 bucks in the pot and someone wins all the money and plans our next monthly outing. I won the first one and we went to a pub for drinks and appetizers. 

Today, Nicole planned a fun outing at the park. We met at Henderson Lake for a picnic with our husbands (although, unfortunately, Jarod couldn't come!!) 

I am so thankful for the new friends I have made since having London. Nicole and Tawyna and I try to get together for play dates once a week which is so nice! I connected with them instantly and i feel like we have been friends for ages. Almost all of my friends in Lethbridge I met through Jarod, so it is so great to finally have my own group of ladies to hang out with!! I don't know what I would do without their friendships! PS Ladies!! We need another girls night soon and I need a photo of US (no babies lol!!)
