Mommy Note

My favorite part of the day...
When my husband and I are ready for bed, he always goes into Emily's room to check on her. He puts her covers back on, arranges her fuzzy bunnys and baby doll, kisses her and whispers to her "love you baby girl". He walks out shutting the door behind him. But it is the small loving smile he has on his face that makes my heart melt EVERY night. I'm not sure if he knows that I watch his nightly ritual, but if you are reading this...you are a good dad James, I love you!

Monkeying around at the zoo.

Mommy and I went to the zoo last Friday. It was so much fun. We decided to go after all the kids went back to school. So we had the zoo all to ourselves almost. We walked around for HOURS seeing everything multiple times. My favorite is the lions and penguins. I made mommy go back over and over again to see the lions hoping that they would roar, but they didn't. I can't wait to go back.





State Fair

Mommy and Daddy took me to the Michigan State Fair. It was a lot of fun. I got to see all the farm animals, ride some rides, and had cotton candy for the first time. YUMMM! Check out the cool tiara and light sword I won.

Camping Trip!!!

Mommy and Daddy took me camping with Aunt Sue and Uncle Greg. It was SOOOO MUCH FUN!!!! I had a great time. Who wouldn't like being outside for three days straight. Aunt Sue and Uncle Greg were nice enough to let us sleep in their brand new camper when it was too chilly to sleep in our tent. Here are some pictures of our wonderful time.

Grama Jan came for a visit....

... and boy was she surprised at how grown up I am. She really wishes we lived closer so she could see me more often. We told her she can move into to the guest room if she ever retires. But she would miss Poppa Bob too much. We did a lot while she was here. She took me shopping and a LONG walk looking at garage sales. She even took me to church. I loved it there, we sang and listened very carefully. I might go back the next time Grama comes down. Here is a video of Grama working with me on my flash cards. I know all my colors and shapes. And now I am practicing my numbers and letters. (please ignore daddy's legs at the end of the video, he forgot how to turn off the filming mode on the camera...heehee)

Music in the park

Thursday's by my house they have music in the park. Mommy and Beff (Mommy's friend Beth) took me last week. It was a lot of fun. They played Bob Seger music. And from what Mommy tells me was my Grandpa Bob's favorite. I liked the music a lot.


"Take my picture, Mommy"

Mommy and Emily

Bye Bye Huggies!

Well….it’s official, I AM POTTY TRAINED! I feel like such a big girl now in my big girl panties. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of me. I still wear my princess diaper (pull-ups) at nap time and bedtime, just in case.

I’ve been enjoying my summer vacation. Daddy is home most of the time with me and I visit with Miss Norma twice a week. My Daddy bought me a pool, a big pool. But I don’t have my little pool anymore. (Emily says this all the time. She also wakes up every morning, and the first thing she says is “I swim now?”) Here are some pictures/video of me swimming by myself.

Memorial Weekend

Here are a few pictures from our Memorial Weekend. My Grandpa got very sick, so we had a very eventful and exhausting time. Grandpa is doing much better and we had a great time toward the end of our visit.
