I know I have said this before... but I am so blessed. I have two beautiful, loving children and a wonderful husband. We have been having so much fun as a family this past few months with the addition of Emme. We joined the YMCA this past weekend and have been going daily to swim in the fun kiddy pool and playing in the gym on the play mats and with basketballs. Noah loves it. He gets so excited to go to the gym. However, when we put him in the daycare so that we can work out, he is not a happy camper.

We have also been spending a lot of time around the house doing some small home improvements and yard work. The past few months have seemed to fly by. Its all a blur. Emme is doing much better with sleeping. She takes 2 long naps during the day and a few cat naps. Nights she wakes up twice and then likes to get up around 6 am to hang out with Pete while he watches sports center and drinks his coffee before work.

Next week we leave for the cabin for 4 days. I cant wait to get out of the cities for awhile and relax on the beach. It will be fun to watch Noah on the beach. I am curious to see how he does with being on the boat and fishing. Hopefully we don't get a hook in the eye. A fishing pool and a toddler might not be a good mix.

That is all for us. Hope all is well. God Bless!

Photo Shoot

Last Friday we had a friend come take pictures of the kids. She did a great job. Here is a sneak peak at some of the gorgeous pictures she took. We are very grateful and pleased with the results. Thanks Beth!!

Choo Choo

Just hangout waiting for Dada to finish building his train set!

Playing with his new Choo choo train

Noah is in love with choo choo trains so of course we had to buy him some Thomas the train stuff. He is way too spoiled. However, it does keep him busy when I have to nurse Emme. Definitely worth every penny!!

Emme's first smile and 4th of July Parade Pics

Be prepared to see a smile that will melt your heart.....
Isn't she beautiful???

We had a blast on the 4th at my aunts house. Here is Noah and Papa in the pool. Noah loves to jump into the water. He has no fear :)

Me and my 2 beautiful kids getting ready for the neighborhood parade.

We decorated the stroller for the parade. Noah thought it was so much fun. He was proud of his stroller and loved waving the flags.

Here is Noah and his buddy Theo.

Yesterday we spent a wonderful day in Stillwater. It was so nice having quality family time. Noah had a blast at teddy bear park and watching the boats on the river. We also had a great dinner at the Freight House. The weather was perfect with a nice breeze.

At the park, Noah was so excited about the train. He kept pointing at the train and screaming "CHOO CHOO." It was so cute. It is fun to see life through his eyes. Even going to a kids park is fun and enjoying. I cant wait for Emme to get a little older so she can play too with Noah. But then again...I don't want her to grow up either.

Do they look alike?

1 Month Today!

Look mom.... Emme is sleeping. SHHHHH. Noah loves Emme's vibrating chair. Here he is relaxing and listening to some lullaby's. Oh how I love my little peanut. I wish he would stop growing up so fast.

Here is Noah and his best buddy Mia! Look how well they are sharing. They look so much a like they could be brother and sister. They definately fight like siblings :).

Time is just flying by. Emme is 1 month old today. This picture was taken this afternoon. She is doing so well. She is more awake and alert which is a lot of fun. We are really enjoying our new addition to the family.
