Emma Sue Turns Two!

video

4.27.08 Happy "Happy Two" Emma Sue! We were so blessed to have all of our family here to celebrate! We were especially blessed to have Emma's G.G. (aka: Gloria the Greatest-Grandma) and all her grandparents here! Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures of them...tons of video, but no pictures. (I guess that will be our next project, trying to figure out how to upload video.)

We had "happy cake," tons of presents, and ladybugs! It was a fun day! Thank you for celebrating this special day with us!!

Nathan is Six Months!

Happy 1/2 Birthday, Nathan! At six months, Nathan is becoming a very efficient crawler. He is really getting his technique down. Unlike Emma, he likes to travel in stealth mode....crawling quietly and sneaking up on his targets....or hiding from Mom. His favorite target is the cat! I have also found him down the hall, in the bathroom, and in the utility room! He's so fast! He and Emma are becoming great friends now. She loves to "jump" him in his jumper...he laughs hysterically. He wants to be into whatever she is doing....and eat whatever she is eating!

Big Bath

4.15.08 Today Nathan had his first bath in the BIG bath tub! Emma was there to tell him all about it!
No, the water's not cold! This is great!

This is my favorite toy! Of course I'll share it!

Nathan's First Real Food

3.15.08 Finally! Real Food! Nathan was so happy....and so hungry. He ate every bite and hasn't quit eating since. He is definitely a growing boy. He looks so little in the high chair!










More please!

Easter Sunday





Happy Easter!! Today was a busy day. The Easter bunny came first thing and delivered Easter baskets and hid eggs. Emma loved her basket...and Nathan's. We went down to Ennis to see Gary's family, then over to Jen's house for Shealy Easter. Jen did a great job and everything wa so yummy! It was so busy, we didn't get many pictures....and those we did try to take Emma and Nathan were too busy to sit still! :-)

Easter Saturday


Today was a special day!! Jenn's boyfriend, Tad, was baptized and joined the church today! Yea Tad! Emma and I also made a bunny cake for tomorrow. The Minors came over for dinner before going to the Easter Vigil. It was a fun day!

Coloring Easter Eggs










Emma's first Easter Egg coloring. She concentrated very hard and made some beautiful eggs!! She was very particular about what colors she put on each egg.

Nathan's Baptism

Happy Day! Nathan was baptized March 1 at St. Ann's. He did so great....he didn't cry at all when Deacon Kory poured the water on him. He looked so handsome! Emma kept everyone busy...she found this to be a perfect opportunity to explore the big church. Yep, one long, super-fast sprint all the way up the center aisle, around the front and back down again. I'm just glad it wasn't during mass!! Everyone came back to our house for a reception afterwards. It was a great day. We missed Grandma Sunie and G.G. though!! Pictures coming soon.

SNOW!!





3.8.08 It finally snowed!! Twice in one week! Emma was so excited. Her favorite thing to do was eat the snow!! She also loved throwing the snowballs at Daddy and up in the air. Nathan was so fascinated. He kept looking up at the sky. We did get to build a snowman...he had toppled over by the next day. We'll try again next year!

Welcome to my Blogspot!

No, the title is not a foreign language. Well, I guess it depends on how familiar you are with toddler-ese. The title is two of my favorite words that Emma, 20 months, can now say. Bapple, which is my favorite, is for apple or banana....whichever she wants at the moment. Broklee is just what it is spelled like- broccoli, which she loves to say but can't stand to eat! I could have used "wee-waa" (pacifier) or "waahhhh" which is baby Nathan-ese for I'm hungry. He's showing off for you now, so I guess I'd better go.
I hope to keep this spot up to date with all the latest pictures and happenings of our family!
