Emma Bean

Emma was so excited about her backpack for dance to carry her tap shoes and ballet shoes in that I had to take a picture. I'm going to put her name on it but we just got it so we didn't have time.

Dance is going great, she absolutely loves it and asks everyday if we're going!!

Emma and Brooks

Here is a picture my mom got of Emma and Brooks. Emma's like her mommy and smiles so big you can barely see her eyes open!!

In other news, Brooks is OFFICIALLY walking now. He's even trying to run at times. I can't believe he's already walking. Where has the time gone! He's so cute I could just eat him up. My babies aren't babies anymore technically although they'll always be my babies no matter how big or how old they are. They are MY WORLD!!! I love them so much!!

Labor Day weekend...

I'm a bit behind but I wanted to post some pictures from Labor Day Weekend. We spent the weekend at the lake and some friends came up to join. The weather was great and we had a great time! Here are some pictures.

This is Brooks before we left Saturday morning. We were loading the car and he was playing with Zoe's cage. He loves it for some reason!

10 Months old...


You were 10 months old on Saturday. Time sure is flying by and we're already talking about what we're doing for your first birthday. You are still so happy and so laid back. You really only fuss when you are hungry or tired. You don't like it when we are eating something and don't offer to share but other then that you are always happy. You sleep from 8 at night till somewhere between 6 and 8 the next morning. It really just varies from day to day. You take 2 naps a day 1 in the morning that's about 30 min and then 1 in the afternoon that's an hour or 2. You can say dada, momma, nana and then babble a lot more stuff. You wave when someone says bye bye or hey and waves at you. You can give high fives now and you are walking like crazy. You are still crawling more then walking but you can walk without anyone's help and we find you trying to walk to toys all by yourself a lot more every day. You are eating a mixture of table foods and baby food. You have 2 bottom teeth and then your top 2 teeth have broken the skin but aren't completely in yet. You still take a bottle 4 times a day as well and you drink well from a sippy cup. You absolutely adore your sister and you are starting to pay a lot more attention to Zoe as well. We love you so, so, so much and can't believe you're already 10 months old. Every month when we take your picture Emma sings Happy Birthday to you, it's so cute!!

It's harder each month to take your picture as you don't want to sit still for anything but we managed to get a few good ones!

We love you baby boy!!
Mommy, Daddy & Emma

Cheese Puffies...

Ever since we gave Brooks big people food he wants to try everything we are trying. One of his favorite things is cheese puffs. Here are some pictures of him enjoying some.

Here's Zoe hoping he'll share with her.

He's all done so he decided he could share and she loves it and he does too.

Dance, Dance, Dance...

We started a Mommy & Me dance class 3 weeks ago. At first Emma wasn't so sure about it but she's warming up to it and now looks forward to it every week. I look forward to it as well because it's just me and Emma time for that night. I started dance when I was 2-3 so I figured what better thing to do then have her start young as well. This is nothing real structured, it's just more or less a way to introduce them to dance. I actually enjoy it myself...who wouldn't enjoy getting to sing, dance and act like a kid again! Here are some pictures of her before dance class from the last 3 weeks.
