Emma's 3rd Birthday!


Emma's 3rd birthday was pretty low key... I am not into doing the "big" birthday thing.  We did a birthday party for Emma the first year and that was enough for a few more;)  Grandma came and Emma could not have been more excited to have HER grandma!  Apparently she is nobody else grandma.  Just HERS:)  She was not so happy to see her leave this AM;(  Luckily the little boy I watch was almost here so that made her happy that she was going to be able to show Ryan all her new things!!
Emma's cousin Delaney was sick AGAIN:(  so her and Hadley did not come but Aunt Kim and Aidan did.  Aidan is such a good kid!  I don't think coming to a 3 year old birthday party was on the top of his list of things to do but he did it with a smile and I think he enjoyed the cupcakes and some of Emma's toys;)  Mema and Papa were here too(no pictures to prove it)!!!
There are mema and papa's legs:)
Emma had a great time with just a few people and it was so easy for Mommy and daddy too!  Maybe one year she will have a "real" birthday party.  Until them... the family one will have to do!
Loves her Mermaid from Aidan, Hadley and Delaney.  I think H and D will be getting  the same thing for their birthday in a few weeks to prevent fights at Mema's pool:)

Grandma had to "eat" a lot of birthday cake with Emma this weekend!  After she left Mommy and Daddy had too!

Emma even let Liam help:)

What else is left in here???


Liam threw all the dress up clothes out and thought the princess box looked fun!

Happy Happy Birthday Emma Rose!!

Dear Emma,
Three years ago we were blessed with the sweetest baby girl!  I look at you now and think how amazing it is that you are now a big 3 year old!  You were the smallest little peanut I had seen.  You may have been small but you showed us your lungs worked within seconds.  You voiced your opinion to those doctors that you were NOT ready to join the real world!! 

I know to some people you were big but at 5lbs I thought you were teeny!!!!  After a week of struggling to eat and keep your body temp regulated you came home at just over 4 lbs.  You were in the less the 1% and now you are up to the 90% or so!  Just amazing! 








Now look at you!  39 inches or so and maybe 33ish pounds!  And you still like to voice your opinion loudly- especially to your brother!!! 

It is crazy to me how much you have grown!

Getting shy for Picture time!

This Birthday stuff is HARD work!!

Frog Cake from Heather!

When I look back at the last year you have grown a great deal.  Last May we went to the dr for your 2 year check-up and you were only saying maybe 10 words at the most.  Now.... you are non-stop, complete sentences, conversations and .... attitude:)  That comes with being a girl I guess;)

We hope you have a wonderful day and can't imagine what a day would be like without your smile and hearing you say I love you soooo much!!!  You bring much joy and laughter to those around you! 

LOVE YOU!!!!

Cakebatter pancakes.  Not exactly how I wanted them to turn out... but it worked:)

This year ALL you wanted for your birthday was Bolt!  We were able to fulfill that wish and hope that every year it is that easy:) and we can get you exactly what you want!!!  For some reason I am thinking in a few years it will be more then a 11$ stuffed animal!!!!

Broken Leg...

Emma seems to think that she broke her leg and has a cast. She would not wear these for Halloween but now that it is 85 degrees out... why not wear leg warmers:) She will say she has a cast like Hadley(her cousin who broke her arm).

Liam showing off his muscles

Liam LOVES his sister and copies all that she does ad just stares at her

Check out my abs ladies!

Liam is not a fan of the grass yet!!
GO SU!!!



Sitting like a BIG boy at the table!  Emma really was thrilled she was sitting there even though she looks annoyed;)

Enjoying summer...err Spring??

We have had some crazy warm and sunny days here and that is unlike Syracuse!!!  Yesterday we broke out the water table and the bathing suits!  I think that the weather will slip back to the cooler spring days but we will take this while we can.  It has been fun doing summer activities in March:)





We had to take pictures to document this event because it may not happen for another 10 years:)
