Noah and Emme,
I just want you to know how much I love you. Tonight before going to bed, I checked on you both, prayed over you, and cuddled with you a little. Emme, I picked you up and rocked you back to sleep. I am sorry for waking you, but soon you wont want me to rock you anymore. You are growing up way to fast. I need to get all my cuddle time in now, while your still a baby. You are so precious. I love watching you sleep in my arms.

And Noah, you are growing up to be such a smart, funny, and handsome little man. When I checked on you tonight, I found you naked at the end of your bed. I don't know what happened from the time I put you to bed at 8 until 10, but you make me laugh. Luckily you kept your diaper on. I gave you an extra blanket and snuggled in for a bit. You never woke up, but I whispered "I love you" in your ear and kissed your cheek.

Sweet Dreams :)

She may never crawl...

This is Emme's new way of getting around. She may never crawl :(

Wow has the month of May flown by. A lot has happened this past may. I celebrated my birthday, mother's day, my brothers graduation from college, my Moms birthday, end of MOPs for the year, and so much more. We have really enjoyed the past few weeks and the weather has been beautiful. The kids and I have really enjoyed being outdoors. Noah has been a huge help in the garden and loves to play and dig in the dirt, but I think his favorite is using the hose to water the plants. He is such a water bug. By the time he is finished he is a wet rag. We go through 2-3 outfits a day. Ok...well I will just get to the pictures since probably nobody reads what am writing anyways. :)

Here is a flower from my garden. Its the first year that this plant actually bloomed. I was so excited!
Noah and Emme enjoying an ice cream cone on a hot evening.

mmmm soo good Emmers. This was her first whole cone. She was suppose to share with Daddy but she put up a huge fuss so we just gave it to her. She actually finished it all...cone and everything :)

Getting ready for nap time. My favorite time of the day :)

Peak Emme!
Emme figured out that she still doesn't have a door on her room. I looked in to see if she was ok and this is what i saw.

A week ago Friday, Pete, the kids and I participated in a 5k run to support healthy lifestyles and saint paul school district. It was a blast. It was my first 5k and I was so proud that I actually ran the whole 3.11 miles. We finished in 31:30.

Ready, Set, Go!

Shortly after our 5k, Emme came down with a fever and cold. She had the fever for over 5 days. It was awful and poor Emme was miserable. When the fever broke she broke out in a head to toe rash. It was later confirmed as roseola. Poor little girl.

Cuddling with mama during her sickness.

Planting the flower boxes. Noah is such a great little helper.

I'm Back!

Hello Everyone! Its been way to long since my last post. I apologize. The kids and I have been keeping busy this past month and I haven't found the time to get pictures uploaded. Well, that's not totally true....I have also been napping when the kids nap :)

Some quick news and then I will get to the pictures. Noah has moved into his big boy bed!!! He has done great and always stays in his bed. We are very proud of him. He also pooped in his potty this week!! Yeah Noah! Emme is so close to crawling but just doesn't seem to go for it yet. She gets up on all fours and rocks and sometimes makes one move and then plop....down she goes and the screaming begins. She may never crawl and this rate. She is also getting ready for her big 1st birthday soon. I cant believe she will be 1! This year has just flown by.

Noah with his reading material in the bathroom. He is trying to go poop so he can get another present. No luck on this try :( But he did make some pretty goofy faces to make all of us laugh. He is such a character.

Noah and Emme love to play together. Here they are after nap cuddling and jumping in Emme's bed.

Miss Hot Stuff with her wild hair after getting up from nap.

Peek-a-Boo Emme. I love her face in this picture. She was being silly.

On Mother's Day, Pete and Noah made a nice warm fire and played out in the backyard while I put Emme down and had some quiet time to myself. I don't know if Noah or Peter enjoyed the fire more. They both love making bon fires.

Emme is not to sure about the camera.

Happy cinco de mayo! On may 5th we celebrated the Mexican holiday and my birthday by going out to eat at my favorite Mexican restaurant. Noah had a blast.

Noah helping with the garden. We are making a square foot garden this year and Noah has enjoyed helping out. We planted a bunch of vegetables. Hopefully it will turn out.
