Ready for dance class!

Posing for the camera
Today Emmy had her first dance class. It was so adorable! Hopefully over time her and the other 2 year old kids will listen a little better(ha ha 2 year old listening). It was so fun to watch her. I can't believe my Emmy is getting so big!

This Is What I Wake Up To Every Morning!

This is what I wake up to EVERY morning! This picture was taken 5 min after Emmy woke up today and I swear I did not touch it! No wonder it takes us an hour to get out of the house!

Silly Girl

I had to add these. This was Emmy having whipping cream from the can for the first time. She obviously loved it!

Lately Emmy has been saying the funniest things. I figured I would write them down so I don't forget them
-Today we were at the store. I was looking at a candle and touched it. Emmy then took my chin and said " You don't touch that you understand? I don't want you to break it"

-A few weeks ago I was putting some clothes away in the baby's room. Emmy was sitting in my bed. All of a sudden I hear " Mom come back. Mom I said come back here." I did not come because I was busy and she was kind of being a brat. Then I hear " I will give you a treat" My own child was trying to bribe me. I thought that was the moms job?
- Ever since I have been pregnant Emmy seems to think she gets " contractions'. When we are at the store she will crab her tummy and say " OH mom I am getting a serious contraction!" She also says " Mom I can't I am getting a contraction" when I ask her to do something and she does not want to do it.

- The other day we were taking a bath. My stomach is huge and she was coloring on it with finger bath paint. I have been trying to talk to her about the baby. I asked her what she was going to do when the baby came. Her answer " I am going to scare him, then save him" It was so funny how she said it!
- Emmy and I like to take walks and drives up to the new temple. We talk about how it is Heavenly Fathers and Jesus home and how you pray, get married and take convents out at the temple. The other day when we were driving by and I was asking her questions she said " I want to marry Jesus in the temple!" Maybe she is going to be a nun?
- My dad and his girlfriend brought me a baby gift a while ago. My dad taught Emmy how to stick a goldfish up her nose and blow it out. ( thanks dad!) My dad was holding a book and Emmy accidentally tripped and ripped a page out. The page was a picture of a alligator. Emmy then said in such a sad and serious voice " OH NO! I AM SO SO SORRY ALLIGATOR!"

- We like to go visit Matt once a week for lunch. When we drop him off Emmy rolls down the window and says every time " I love you the most dad! See you later alligator. In a while crocodile." She does not understand that she should say the first part and Matt should say the last part.

- Today I was cleaning up while Emmy was coloring. When I came into the kitchen she has pulled out the time out chair. When I asked her what she was doing she said " Emmy sit it timeout. I draw on chair" It was funny but then when I was getting her dressed she made a mess. I never get mad if she makes a mess but she said " Oh dear mom Emmy made a mess. I better go sit in timeout" I think my child is enjoying timeout a little too much.

- Last but not least Emmy is talking in the 3rd person ALL THE TIME! I am working on talking to her in different ways and having her repeat things like " I want more please." Instead of " Emmy wants more please". It is just so funny how she always talking in the 3rd person. Hopefully it is not too big of a deal :)
- Emmy is in the picking nose stage. I have told her a few times it is gross. Every time I catch her doing it she hurries and takes her finger out of her nose and says " EWWWW Emmy don't pick your nose that gross!"

Those are just a few things that I can think of that she has said lately. She is getting so big and is so funny!!! She really is my pride and joy! I just love her to death!!!

The Gateway,A Shower & An Update

Emmy at the Gateway
I have no idea if Emmy liked it or not:)
Emmy would run and scream when the water went on.
My wonderful shower. Thanks Jen and Randi!!!
So many cute presents!!!
The food and decorations were great!
9 months!

Yesterday was busy busy! We started the day off by going to Gateway to play in the fountians with our playgroup. I am still not sure if Emmy liked it or not. She would scream at the top of her lungs everytime she got wet. She always loves playing with her little friends and I always enjoy the adult time at playgroup!

Later that night my friends Randi and Jen threw me a WONDERFUL shower!!! Everything was so cute! The decorations, the food, the friends... I really love the neighborhood we live in and am so glad to have so many wonderful friends. Thank you again to all who came and supported me! It means more then you know!

Just a pregnancy update. My due date is still Septemer 20th ( I know my baby ticker is about a week slow). I was having some serious pain and contractions this week and found out it was a wonderful bladder infection. He is measuring in a week small and I am still dialated to a 1 1/2. It looks like he is going to be in my tummy a little longer then I expected... Oh well I will do whatever it takes to have a healthy baby even if it means going through an extra week of hell :)jk

Family Date Night

Family Date Night was a blast!

Emmy thinks she is making a fish face with me here.


Last night we decided to go to Chilis. We decided to bring Emmy along. It was "family date night". We had so much fun with the exception of a 45 min wait and a 2 year old. Emmy was so good and loved every minute of last night! She could not stop eating!!! I am not kidding when I say the kid eats more then me at 8 months pregnant :) The cake was her favorite and when it was all gone she asked our server for more. When we got home she had a finger painting bath and we ended the night with the movie "The Incredibles".

Lately I have been having mixed feelings... I am so excited to welcome a new baby to the home. Every day it seems more real to me as we get things ready. Today as we were setting up the swing and bouncy seat it hit me that we are going to be a family of 4. We wont be just our family of 3 anymore. I am sure it sounds strange but I am going to miss just the 3 of us! I have loved the past 2 years of being our little family. Emmy has given me a joy I never knew I could have. I am so worried about how she is going to take things when the baby comes. I hope that she will love him and understand that we still love her. I know things are going to be hard and am not oblivious to that! I am so excited to start this new chapter of our family's lives but sad to see the one we have end! I have loved being a mom of 1! Wish me luck for being a mommy of 2.
