Where's the Pictures?

Well, it's been 5 days since I last posted and I've heard about it!!! So for those who asked, here are some of the things we have been up to:

-Saturday we spent the day running errands and stocking up on baby items that we needed. I can't seem to get much done during the day by myself!!!

-Sunday we went to church again and enjoyed seeing our church family. That afternoon was Chase's 8th birthday party and decided to celebrate with family since Emma is still adjusting. She did well and didn't mind the company. She and her little cousin Max are still getting used to each other. Christmas will be interesting to say the least! Chase had a Boston Red Sox birthday and got lots of neat gifts and money to buy some new basketball shoes.

-Monday was Chase's actual birthday so we couldn't not celebrate since he was out of school. We went to Chucky Cheese...not completely alone, Ryan joined me for fun and games. Chase wanted to eat at Shogun so we went there for lunch and Emma was captivated by the entertainment. Chase, Emma, and I went back to Chucky Cheese to use the rest of his tokens. We then gandered the mall and then went to Target. We finished by stopping by Barnes and Noble to pick up the newest Diary of a Wimpy Kid book. We finished the day of excitement by having dinner with Ryan's dad who shares a birthday with Chase. I don't know exactly how I managed to do all that!!!

-Tuesday was a "stay at home" day. I tried to get some things accomplished and did managed to make it to Wal-Mart! I still can't figured out how to clean the house and wash clothes during the day!!! Little Miss Emma was teething and wanted Mommy close so we played and forgot about the mess. I'm sure it will still be there when I get around to it!

-Today we had lunch with a college friend of mine. It was nice to spend time with her and I was thankful that our schedules allowed us to catch up. After that I dropped by to see Nana and her friends at her work so that could meet Emma. After picking up Chase, we went to the local boutique store to get another pink bow since Emma has discovered that she can pull them out and when she does, she shreds the end of it. I left with 4 different pink bows. Who knew there were so many shades??? :o)

-Tomorrow I am going to see my family at school and check in with my sweet students. I have missed them and I can't wait to see how they are doing.

Here's some photos of the past few days. I will try to stay caught up... I love that you all enjoy reading it!!! We enjoy sharing our life with you!

This is Emma in her 'jumper." She loves to jump up and down, but only for a few minutes as it confines her....

Emma has been teething. She already had her two bottom teeth when we got her, but her top right tooth has come through since she has been home. Today I noticed another tooth working its way through on top... These teething biscuits are great....but extremely messy. We needed a bath after this one.

Our sweet girl in her pumpkin outfit.

Did I mention she was teething?

She started crawling a few days ago, but today she really put it into practice and managed to get stuck behind the couch. She hasn't learned reverse yet.

Our pastor and his family got Emma this sock monkey. She was working him over tonight. I love that face...


  1. LOVE all that hair, such a cutie!

  2. Thanks for the comment on my blog. Families who have made it home with their little ones, give me hope and reassurance that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Your little one is gorgeous. Congratulations.
