10 on Tuesday

Rachel kindly reminded me the other day that I haven't updated my blog in about a month. Ack! I hadn't realized it had been that long. It just seems like things have been so busy lately! Has it really almost been a month?

1. Mimi (Garett's grandma) came and stayed with us for a few days. She is our first official house guest! The kids had a blast with her, though it took Emma a day to get used to being held by someone else. E is going through that stage where only mama will do!

2. While Mimi was here,we took her to the local zoo. I LOVE the Lufkin Zoo, amazingly. Is it crazy that we are going there again tomorrow--which makes two times in one week--with our friends, Erin and Kendall?

3. Speaking of the zoo, Nathan is TERRIFIED of peacocks. There are a ton that just roam the zoo. I end up having to hold him the whole trip. Anyone know how to get rid of an irrational peacock fear????

4. Emma is sitting up! She still topples over some, but she is getting better and better everyday! I am so proud of my baby girl!

5. It has been beautiful here the past few days. I mean, where on earth did this great weather come from? We live in Texas for Pete's sake. And its May. Anyway, I'll take it! Emma, Nathan, and I have been playing outside a lot. I thought I'd try to put Emma in Nathan's old car and see how she liked it. Man oh man did she like it! She knew right where to put her hands and how to sit. She's a natural born driver! Nathan likes to push her, though it makes me a little nervous. I love this shot because of little N's tongue sticking out. That is so him. He sticks out his tongue when he is concentrating.

6. Who is this woman with Emma???? I really have two or three pictures with me and her. I am just always behind the camera. Garett grabbed my D300 and took a few. I'm sort of protective of my camera.

7. I started Jillian Micheals' 30 Day Shred. You can see why in the picture above. I just can't seem to stop gaining weight after Emma. I am breastfeeding her still, so I am always hungry, but something has got to give! Anyway, that work out video, ummmm ow. I was hurting for two days after starting it. I had to stop due to company and going out of town, but Jillian, here I come!

8. We still haven't finished unpacking.

9. Guess what I have done for the last two weekends. I mowed the grass, or uh, helped Garett mow the grass! I have never touched a lawnmower in my life. I thought it might be good exercise. It was actually pretty fun, safety glasses and all.

10. Three superheros down, tons more to go. The list keeps getting longer and longer.
