Picture Crazy

So I’m starting to go picture crazy!  I pulled out the SLR for Memorial Day to catch some pictures of the kids.  Ethan was his normal happy self.  We went over to the Martinezmoles house for a BBQ.  Emily played with Matthew, Hai and Ethan of course.  Eveyone enjoyed the kiddy pool and fun was had by all.

Emily continues to grasp the English language and learns a new word everyday although potty training is coming a bit slower.   She does a great job at daycare.  When all of her friends are watching she’ll walk up to the potty at school and just do it.  When she comes home it’s a totally different story.

We’ve gotten to the point where me and Jennifer announce when we have to use the potty.  The next step is bribery! 😀

I uploaded a video of Emily playing with my turntable. It’s odd to think she’ll probably never appreciate an LP record.

It happened! Ethan was on the floor with me and he made his first attempt at a real crawl. I was so excited! He still has a long way to go but it’s a first step to me having to put all the baby gates back up.

It must have been a rough day

In other Ethan news… I shot a cute picture on my iPhone tonight while we were having dinner. Nothing like falling asleep with the bottle in your hand… oh wait, look mom no hands!

Grandma, Grandpa and Aunt Kee Kee (Katie) are in town for the holiday weekend. The kids are LOVING all the attention and of course Grandma, Grandpa and Katie are loving every minute.

Absolutely Amazing

I woke up this morning to the sound of Emily calling for Daddy.  I had a feeling she had a bad dream or wanted comfort so I headed to her room to give her cuddle time.  This morning was one of the moments where I take a “mental snapshot”.  As we laid nose to nose I sat in amazement at how amazing she is.  She feel fast asleep while I sat awake looking at her.

Blackmail!

Nothing like taking a picture naked with your sibling!

I’m a firm believer that taking a bath with your sibling is a right of passage.  Later in life when all the kids do is fight we can think about the happy days when they could sit in the tub together smiling.

Not much has changed on the Ethan front.  He is weeks if not days from crawling.  Now watch, he’s going to make a liar out of me.

Emily is on the path to potty training.  She loves to wear her big girl pants.  She makes pee pee on the potty at school but has yet to do the deed at home.  We’ve had A LOT of false alarms and a few accidents. :)

Grandma, Grandpa and Auntie Kee Kee come into town Thursday night.  Emily is SOOOOO excited to see them all.

The Sounds of Da Da

I woke up this morning to the sound of my little Ethan saying “Da Da”. He’s 7 months today and even though it doesn’t understand fully what he’s saying, it still warms my heart.
