Happy 1st Birthday Emersyn

What? How are you a year old already?  Emersyn you are my heart and soul.  You have a laugh that is beyond the funniest thing I've ever heard. You smile and will reach out for anyone to hold you.  You are very much a "hip baby" meaning your favorite place to be is on someones hip. You also love to headbutt.  If you're mad and are sitting on the floor you headbutt it.  If you like something or someone you headbutt it.  Maybe I should get you a helmet for your birthday?

You can take steps and are a very good walker when you forget that you are walking.  The best part is when you take 4-5 steps, stop do 4-5 squats and then finish up your walking.  Whenever you get close to the person you are walking towards you dive for them like you couldnt possibly walk one more step. 

You love to eat finger food!  You are not really into the sippy cup because you just want to drink out of a regular up like a big girl.  But slow down honey... let's not rush things.  Your my baby and I'm not ready for you to be a big girl.

About being a big girl you are so so long and skinny.  Although you weigh 22 pounds and I feel like you are as light as a feather.  Everything about you to me is small/baby.  I just look at you and think baby, baby, baby.  Sorry tuts, I think this will last until your 30s.

Happy Birthday my little lady.  I love you so very much!

Happy 4th or 15th of July!

 Happy 4th of July!!  It's a little late but seriously I believe that if you are following this blog at all you'll just be happy that there is actually a post!

We went up to the cabin for the 4th.  It was a great time.  My friends Jenny and Hilary and Hil's family came up for the day. It was cloudy but thankful not raining like Kentucky. Chad set off fireworks and we only had one that went kind of crazy into the yard and had everyone diving for shelter.  Good times!!

On Saturday was the boat parade.  Chad took one for the team and took Gray and Cami.  No one else wanted to go but I think they had a good time.  Cami only dropped one flag in the lake so I consider it a Win!

 Cami and Uncle Chad going to boat parade. Gray rode in a tube on the back.

 I'm not sure if it was Friday or Saturday but it was raining so we took the girls into the Indianapolis Children's Museum.  Not a bad drive from the cabin.  Cami had a great time. Emmy did a lot of chilling in her stroller but she did get out to play for a little while in the baby area.

Cami at the Children's Museum Theater. We saw Tangled preformed.  It was a hour.  Emmy wasn't as entertained.  It was like wrestling an Alligator for a hour to keep her still.  

On the way home we need a little snack.  Scott wanted White Castle (nasty) and he asked Cami if she wanted to try it.  Here she is taking her first bite of a slider.  Before she took a bite she said, "I'm not real sure about this."  She said it was good but didn't eat another bite.  I think she was just trying to make her dad happy. 

 So, the BEST THING EVER at the cabin is the Aqua Lily Pad.  Mom got this fun new toy at the Lake. It's so awesome.  You put it out on the lake and can walk on it, play king of the mountain, ride the waves, just lay on it (when the kids aren't around).  It holds up to 1300 pounds so everyone can get on it! It's so fun.  Thanks Mom!

Random Iphone pictures~

Emmy's first Mexican.  Yes, we have messy rice face.  Cami picked out these "beautiful" skirts at Sam's Club and wanted one for Emmy.  She LOVEs to match.  I hate it so it doesn't happy too often. 

Emmy still love Pickles.  If you want to see a FIT just try to take her pickle away.  It's bad, oh so very bad!  My office had an outing at the Lexington Legends baseball game.  Cami played in the play area most of the time and did great hitting the ball.  And YES she doesn't have any shoes on at the ballpark.  Only due to bouncing houses near by so please stop judging! 

Emmy is almost a year old!  I'm in the current stages of planning a party.  Not anywhere near the crazy planning for Cami first.  Sorry Emmy second child is no fun!  But with the first birthday comes the removal of the bottle. Emmy hasn't found a sippy cup that catches her interest so I'm a little worried.  This baby loves to get milk drunk and pass out on a bottle.  

And finally, a picture of my sweet girl Cami.  She is challenging with her mood swings.  Maybe its a girl thing.  One moment her life is over the next she is being sweet and then she is being so very silly.  If this is a toddlers mood swings I don't know if I'll be able to handle the teen years!
