Well apparently summer has finally arrived around these parts... great timing, eh? I wish I could dazzle and wow you with stories and pictures from an adventurous and fun long weekend but alas, I spent most of the weekend on the couch. But I did manage to snap a few pics with my phone along the way.
Let's start with Emerson. She's been learning lots of new things. Like... How to dance. She's got the head bob going on whenever she hears music. Waving-- this isn't new-- but she's abandoned the concept of "less is more" and waves pretty much all day long. Crawling-- she's like lightening. And now she's walking along furniture and starting to stand on her own. Cuddling-- Eme will now cuddle with me for 5 second intervals. This is 5 seconds longer than Caleb (as a baby) would have ever sat still. As of this morning she's figured out how to grind her teeth-- it's driving me crazy.
And... she's been waking up with the sweetest hair lately-- think beehive-- flat on the sides with a big pouf on top. I dig it.
And now that other kid. Check out those muscles.
After days and days spent on the couch I was getting a little claustrophobic. So we tried to get out to a couple of different parks over the weekend. I did a lot of sitting around-- Doug and the kids played. Funniest thing ever was watching them play monkey in the middle-- frisbee style. Eme was the little monkey in the middle who just never seemed to be able to catch the frisbee flying overhead. We also hit up the spray park. Caleb's favorite thing at the spray park was the ziploc bag from his lunch-- he could have run around with that thing filling it up with water for hours. Why do I ever buy them toys? My favorite part of the spray park was the insane set of the stairs I had to climb up and down with my crutches. I'd better have some seriously ripped arms by the time this is over.
And of course-- like I mentioned before-- most of the weekend was spent right here, on the couch. But we've still tried to have fun. Like play monopoly. Caleb beat me quite badly.
And Caleb's continued to spend hours drawing on his Magna Doodle. This was an excavator.
