5 Months

You are getting to be such a big girl! You are becoming a little bit mobile and love rolling all over the floor to get to whatever you want. Gone are the days when I could leave you in the middle of a blanket to play in the living room while I cook. You are trying to get into everything, and require CONSTANT supervision. The only way that I can get anything done without another person there to play with you is to put you in your exersaucer. You will play in that thing for approximately 15-25 minutes, and I madly dash around the house trying to get a few things done.

You love: having us sing to you (the Acorn song is still a favorite), rolling around on the floor, jumping and stomping the keyboard in your exersaucer, eating, playing with toys, eating your toes, doing stretches, watching the puppies play, "talking," and having things YOUR way.

You dislike: the dark, being ignored (or even perceiving that you might not be getting some one's full attention), your pack-n-play, the words "bye-bye," startling noises, and your car seat.

This month you are going to start trying baby food so we shall see how that goes. You seem content with milk right now, but your Nana is freaking out that she doesn't get to feed you baby food. We shall see how that goes.

April's Baby Shower

April's baby shower was a lot of fun.  If you know April, you know that she likes to travel the past of least resistance if possible.  This is not in any way supposed to be a way of calling her lazy.  There were several hostesses, myself included that made the shower a success.  Dana made the beautiful cupcakes that you see below.  They tasted SO good.  They recieved a lot of amazing presents that they can put to use once Oliver Liam gets here, and I know they were very greatful to everyone that helped.  Below are a few shots that I stole from Facebook since I took all of the pictures with her camera. :)

Happy 3rd Anniversary

We celebrated our 3rd Anniversary today.  Since Bradley had to work, it was quick dinner and out the door for him.  It really doesn't seem like it has been three years already, but this year more than the other two years, I really feel like things have changed drastically.  I can't find the picture of the two of us...even though I know we took I am going to put a picture of Bradley opening the card from my parents.  (They bought us a memory foam topper for our bed.  Best. gift. ever.)  Happy 3rd Anniversary Brad!!



Emmarie was a lady bug for Halloween. I found the costume online and ordered it after having a mini-heart attach when I saw the price of costumes for little kids at Carters and Babies-R-Us.  I think it was super cute, and I was really happy that she showed some personality while we were taking pictures.


Pumpkin Patch

A local sorority in EC does a pumpkin patch every year.  They decorate the park with fall decorations and pumkins, and you buy pumkins so you can take pictures of your little ones.  It is a really cool event, but in the past, I did not have a reason to go.  It worked out really well with the exception of it raining right as we were trying to leave.  Fortunately, Emmy did not get wet because Brad had already started walking her back to the car.  Enjoy some of the pictures of our "little pumpkin." (I couldn't resist)
