Having fun with the girls!

We were having fun while daddy is home from work.... Guinness thinks all the my playmats and blankets are for her to pay on...

My first horse, I mean, dog ride:)

Last night I went to dinner with Amy, Kate and Parin.... Kate and I didn't cry until the end!

Pictures say it ALL


Our walk started so peaceful with two sleeping beauties....

Then Emma heard Kate was not happy...

Kate then stopped to hear what Emma had to say...

Then.... They both decided to voice their opinions....

Amy and I found it hilarious how one cried and the other listened.... They were talking to each other!

Today we have the BIG 1 month weigh in! The appointment is at 2:30... stayed tune to find out how much Miss Emma Rose is weighing! We have our predictions here but we will have to wait until this afternoon to find out! Make your prediction!

I don't want to go to the Dr!

Trying to stretch to show how big I have gotten!!!

I told you I grew.... Look at my cheeks! They are chubby

The weigh-in went well! Miss Emma is weighing in at 6lbs 14oz and 20 in! She was in the 2nd% for weight, 5th# for head (no Grevelding head on her yet!!), and 9th% for length... She is getting there!

What to do when it is 90 outside???

Well we were going to go for a walk this morning but someone slept in until 9.... Both Emma and I! Emma slept 9.5 hours last night! YIPPEE!!! We both needed it! Then when we got moving today it was way too hot! So what else is there to do when you can't go outside????? Take photos and go to the mall! We did a little shopping for Miss Emma Rose! She will be stylin' once she gains a little more weight and can wear all her clothes (thanks to her Cousins Hadley and Delaney and her friend Alyssa in CA for all their WONDERFUL hand-me-downs- She doesn't need to know they aren't new:)!

What should I do today???

Guinness thinks all of Emma's things belong to her as well!

incase you missed out:)

I am reposting these pictures just incase you did not see them under the injured daddy posting.....

me practicing dance moves for Dancing With the Stars....

This is where I learned my moves....

Playdate #2

Today we finally got out somewhere that did not include a doctors office, hospital or Walgreens to get a prescription! We went to Cleveland Park with Amy, Kate, Loren and Libby. It was HOT! 85 out and sunny. Emma slept the whole time:) Next week we are going to try to get together again and get a picture of the girls not in a stroller.

Injured Daddy...

Saturday morning was not what I was hoping for. Jeff had started play basketball with a friend and he played Saturdays at 6Am. So, Jeff decided to join him. He left around 5:45AM and at 7 he called.
"I hurt my ankle and Bob is driving me home..." he said. At first I thought yeah ok. I am sleeping and you just woke me up! Then I thought- hmmmmm, Bob is driving him home.... must be bad! When he got home he seemed ok so we let it go and he rested with Guinness. (see below)

When he got up he decided we better go to the ER, The doctor was not with him for more than 1 minute when she said, "yep its gone." Meaning his achilles Tendon. So we spent a little more time at the ER getting xrays and waiting to be discharged. Jeff will need to have surgery so I am hoping that we can get right into a dr on Monday and that we can schedule surgery sooner rather than later. We were planning on coming up north in the beginning of July but now we will wait and see what goes on with his ankle and surgery....
Lets hope this is it and only good things will happen from now on!!!

Sunday: EMMA GREW OUT OF 1 NEWBORN OUTFIT!!! This calls for a celebration!!! I can tell that she is growing. I actually feel like I am holding something now! She is getting longer too so that is why the outfit does not fit her. It is not because it is to snug in the width area!
Sorry Aidan that you will not see the frog on her anymore:( Today was the last day!
This is when it was too big on Emma.

Today Jeff is having his surgery... YUCK! for all of us involved!!! His mom came over and watched Emma for a little bit this morning and our friend Katy helped out as well! THANK YOU!!! Now Emma and I are just waiting to hear from the doctor or nurses that we can go pick up daddy! I thought I would be better sitting here waiting but I think I should have stayed at the hospital because I am a nervous wreck! It will be a LONG few weeks... 6-10 but it could have been a lot worst so we can handle it! Emma (and Guinness) will anxiously be waiting for daddy to get better so we can go to the park


Today was a much better day for me! Yesterday I lived in my car seat to the dr with mommy. taking dad to and from surgery and then going to get medicines for both of them! They are not healthy!! Today I took a good morning nap in my crib and went for a walk. I am going to rest up tonight for my playdate tomorrow with my friend Kate and our new friend Libby. We are going to meet at Cleveland Park for a walk with our mommies.

Above I am practicing my dance moves I learned from my dad.... See below;)

Resting after my Dancing With The Stars tryouts- or dance lessons from Daddy....

Emma is 3 weeks old today! It still isn't her due date but she is growing! She can now wear some Newborn clothes. They are still huge on her but at least I am not losing her legs in them anymore!
Today is the longest she has been awake since she has been born we are going on an hour of awake time! Emma is just looking all around and seems to keep focusing on Guinness and Sabol- although I don't think she can actually see them yet... Only when they are right up in her face.
It is finally sunny and has stopped raining so we are going to get outside and go for a walk!


Tired out and snuggling with Guinness :)

WOW! This Easter is much different than I thought it would be! I thought I would be sitting at home still pregnant stressing about what needed to be done before Emma arrived and worrying about the delivery.  I did not think I would be sitting here holding Emma! She continues to do great. We went to see our WONDERFUL pediatrician on Friday and Emma Rose is weighing.... 5lbs 7.5oz!!!!! She is above her birthweight so I no longer have to wake her up to eat at night!!! Shouldn't she be sleeping through the night yet???!!! HAHA! At least I no longer need to set an alarm every 3 hours! She wakes up on her own.

Today Emma got to meet her Great Grandma and got a million pictures taken by her crazy Mommy! What can I say I love to take pictures!!! Here are a few more from our Easter Photo shoot...
