Everett is 1 Year Old Today!

Time tends to go by faster the older we get, and this past year was no exception. I can't believe Everett is a year old today. It seems like last week we were meeting him for the first time, and wondering if he would ever stop crying. For the record, he did stop crying and turned into a silly, fun loving little boy. We can't imagine our world without him in it.

Here are a few pictures from his big day:

It's Finally Spring!

We've finally emerged from what seems like one of the longest winters in recent history. March was full of illness as it seems like a bug made the rounds in our house for the better part of the month. Here's hoping the arrival of Spring means a healthier household! This morning I took Emerson to Home Depot for their monthly kids workshops. What a great way to spend time together and it allowed her an opportunity to try something new. Her planter box turned out great and once the weather warms up a bit more we'll plant the seeds she picked out. Everett has a new favorite word. It's "No!". He likes to test us by crawling towards the steps, then he'll turn around and shake his head from side to side and say "No!"

Emerson at 4

A little late with this post, but March 10th marked Emerson's 4th birthday. We celebrated her birthday at Edinborough Park with friends and family. At her 4 year appointment, she weighed 40lbs and was 40 and a quarter inches tall. The doctor had her perform a few physical tasks, along with letter and number recognition, and a few other cognitive tasks.
We're hoping for nicer weather so Em can try out her new bike. Here is some video of her first ride:

Everett is 9 Months Old Today!!

Everett Louis is 9 month old already! Where did the time go?
At his 9 month check up, he weighed 19lbs and 28.5" long. His favorite food right now is bananas, but he's also eating cheese, noodles, strawberries, and pretty much anything we place in front of him. His two bottom teeth are all the way through, and one of his top teeth has just cracked the surface. His sleeping habits are amazing, and we're hoping that trend continues! We've had to watch him a little closer now that he's mobile to ensure he doesn't tumble down the stairs. Luckily Emerson is also a great big sister in that regard.

Everett is 8 Months Old Today!!






Keeping up with this blog is proving to be tougher than I had initially thought. Maybe I need some lessons in time management, or maybe the reality of us both having full time jobs and little time to spend with the kids during the week has finally set in. By the time we get the kids off to bed, we're often too exhausted to even think about updating these pages. So, here is a brief rundown of what's new in our life.
Emerson is loving her role as a big sister. She has been a great help when it comes time to feed, change and generally entertain Everett. She absolutely LOVES to make him laugh and will do anything and everything to accomplish that goal. We recently decided that giving the kids separate baths just wasn't working, so about every other night they both pile into the tub. It is pretty cute to see them getting along so well.
Everett cut his first two teeth over the Christmas holiday. We've been introducing solids to him for a while (his favorite is bananas). He also likes Gerber puffs and cheese. He's also showing signs of full fledged crawling, right now he's mastering the "army" crawl. All in all, he's a content little boy who in our opinion is growing up way too fast!
