Emma is 3 months old today!

My sweet, sweet baby girl turned 3 months old today. I am totally in love with that little girlie. She is such a happy baby most of the time and has really showered us with smiles and coos. Just this week she has started to laugh and they are the softest little laughs ever. This month has been full of accomlishments for her! Between the smiles, the coos, the laughs and rolling over, she is just growing more and more each and every day. She love to kick those little legs and dance to music or just gaze at her big bubby, Nathan.

And Nathan! Oh my goodness, he loves her so much! He calls her his brother/sister Emma. It it too cute. He is very protective of her and sometimes doesn't like for us to even pick her up. In the mornings he cuddles up against her, strokes her face and her hair and talks to her about his dreams and her dreams. How did I get to be such a lucky person to have two of the greatest kids in the world?

Here are some pictures taken of litte E on her 3 month birthday, sporting her 3 month monthsie. I love you baby girl!

10 on Tuesday

1. Emma rolled over twice in a row today! She has rolled over a couple times before, but I think that today's rolls were intentional. Go Emma!

2. We had an Open House on Sunday and 15 groups of people came to it. Good right? Well you'd think so, but we still haven't received an offer. Grrr. Know anyone who wants a house? I think one of the major things that is hurting us is that there are so many other houses on our street for sale. It's crazy!

3. Nathan is sick. It is heartbreaking to see your little one in such misery. Hopefully he will get better soon.

4. I'm seriously thinking of taking up photography again. I need a hobby and I actually enjoy taking pictures, especially of newborns. So, if you know any newborns, send them my way!

5. Have I mentioned how fun it is to dress a little girl? I'm having a blast! I ordered some of these already for her hair and cannot wait to get more! She just looks so darn cute all dressed up!

6. Do you think it is crazy for use to want to buy a fixer upper when we move? We found this great house (over 3400 sq ft.) with a huge yard (over an acre), but it was owned by an older woman. So, that means that there is wallpaper EVERYWHERE! Plus, every single room needs an update. But, Garett and I both think that it would look so beautiful all fixed up. We just keep going back to this house.

7. Nathan came up to me today while I was changing Emma and asked me if I had a present for him. I told him, "Sorry, baby, I don't." He insisted that I did, left the room and closed the door behind him. I then hear the door under the stairs being opened up, some noise, and the pitter patter of his little feet, followed by a dragging noise behind him. That little boy had found a present that I had bought and hidden under the stairs. It was a pirate costume set. I had planned on filling a suitcase full of dress up clothes for him to play with and giving it to him for his birthday. Anyway, needless to say we had to open it right away. Ah, well! He made such a cute little pirate.

8. I can't believe that we have a new president, and one that I didn't vote for. That is all I am going to say on that matter.

9. Garett won his first case in court last week! I am super proud of him!

10. I tried doing V Day pictures of Nathan this morning while Emma was sleeping. Poor kid enjoyed his sucker, but you can totally tell that he is sick. I just want to kiss him!

And Mine to Her's...

Her onesie reads, "My heart belongs to Mommy."
We went to Target today because N's new favorite thing to play/say is "Take your order?" I wanted to buy him a cash register and some play food so we could play it properly! We bought that and this onesie--gotta love Target!

What she thinks of tummy time...

and how she feels when I roll her over...

And one of Nathan enjoying some chocolate chips from the cookies that we made. He was not too keen on sharing with me, hence the death stare. Are those not the bluest eyes ever???

Emma and Me!

I have been wanting to surprise my mom with family pictures (including Jason and his family and Rachel) for years now. This Christmas, I finally got the chance to get them taken. My longtime friend, Lisa, took these pictures for us, and I am in LOVE with them! My mom was so happy to get them, too!

I was telling Lisa that I have not one picture of Emma and I together because I am always the one behind the camera, so we set this shot up. I adore this picture (even though you can totally tell that I have not lost my baby weight yet). I cannot wait to blow it up larger and frame it. I have all these photo walls in mind for our new house!
