- Thank you all for your sweet words about our darling girl. It is definitely hard to believe that she is 9 months old! Sometimes I do get sad that she is growing up so fast but then I remind myself how much fun it is to see her do all of these neat new things. It really is such a fun age!

-Speaking of 9 months old, I had originally planned on taking E to get 9 month portraits made but at the last minute I decided to do them myself. That's right, Emerson now has her very own personal mamarazzi! :) Obviously I am no professional and I have so much to learn, but I'm pretty excited about how they turned out. I'm still working on editing them, but here is a sneak peak.


Once I'm done editing, be prepared for picture overload! :)

-We had a friend come into town yesterday. She was with us in Africa and one of the sweet girls who threw me a little surprise baby shower. I haven't seen her in almost a year so I'm pretty excited!

-It's been fun to have so many visitors over the last few months. It's neat to be able to show everyone around and to have an excuse to go out to eat and shop. :)

- On the same note, I don't think the diet is going to fare so well this week. It's really hard to find healthy choices at a lot of the restaurants. It's also not really as fun! Oh well- you only live once, right? :)

-I'm also thinking my workout schedule might suffer just a little bit. I mean honestly- if I have to choose between relaxing on the beach or running in the gym- the beach is going to win out for sure. Especially this week...

- I have recently discovered a Starbucks just 5 minutes from our house. I haven't yet decided if this is a good thing or a bad thing.

- Tonight we plan on hanging out at home. We will probably play some games or watch a movie. I have The Help and Breaking Dawn on standby. :) We'll see if E will cooperate for movie night...

Having visitors is a great excuse for not exercising :)
