This, That and the Other

4.11.2012

I am still working on a few real posts, so until then here are a few randoms for this Wednesday.

-First I would like to say thank you to everyone for your kinds words and prayers for Matthew. I know Jesse's brother and his wife appreciate it so very much.

- Emerson had a wonderful first Easter and I promise to share pictures as soon as I get them. We couldn't take our personal cameras to the Easter egg hunt so I'm waiting for the photographer that was there to post the pictures so that I can post them here!

-Emerson is getting braver by the second. She is now taking 3-4 steps to get from the couch to the coffee table and from one toy bin to the other. The question is: will she be walking by her birthday?

(Couldn't you just die over those thighs? Oh- how I love them!)

-I have been a photo book making fanatic lately! I always get coupons for different companies in my email so I've been trying to take advantage of that. So far I've made a family book for Emerson (more on that later,) a book about my parents visit earlier this year, two books of Emerson's first week and a book of her 6 month photos.  I've used Shutterfly, Picaboo and Paper Coterie and I have been happy with all of the books. I currently have a code for a free book from My Publisher so I'm working on one there. (You can get the code by liking them on Facebook.)  One day I hope to have a shelf full of books for us to look back on.

-I have made absolutely no progress on my blog book on Blurb. It just takes forever to do a single page so  I'm not sure if I'll stick with that or just go with an easier way- maybe Blog2Print?  Either way I definitely want my blog printed...

-The weather continues to get warmer and I know it's only a taste of what's to come. I feel so bad for Emerson because her carseat blocks the rear air vent. Sometimes after a fifteen minute ride her hair is wet with sweat. Poor baby! But it has been pretty nice in the evenings so we always try to spend at least an hour outside. We do lots of swinging, of course!


Speaking of weather, we actually got a little bit of rain a few days ago! Well, really it was just a few sprinkles but it was the first precipitation I've seen in over a year so I was pretty excited. I miss the rain so badly!


Other than that, there is not a whole lot going on here. Jesse and I are both counting down the days until our trip home! It will be so nice to be on U.S. soil again and we are so looking forward to seeing our family and friends.  We will also be celebrating a certain someone's birthday... :)

Joeylee said...

oh Emerson you are getting to be such a big girl. I love the chubby thighs!!!

Lyndsey said...

I can't believe she is already taking steps! I bet she will be walking by her birthday at that rate!

So the blurb blog books take a long time to make? I was considering trying them out because they appear to be a lot cheaper than the blog2print books...are they or am I just not reading the fine print, haha.

Natalie said...

Those little thighs are adorable...I bet she walks before her b-day! I need to do a photobook as well...I've got one up to Christmas of last year so at least I'm not too behind as I have been in the past!

Amber said...

She is getting so big and just adorable!

Mateya said...

We make a photobook every year on our anniversary. It is such a fun way to keep track of the time! Love both pics of E, too cute!

Mallorie said...

Oh. My. Gosh. Her. Legs. LOVE THEM! Seriously, so precious!!! And I am addicted to photo books. Emma Claire has one for each month so far and we have about 10 more! We are making our own personal library! :-) Can't wait to see Easter pictures!

Allison said...

Emerson is getting SO big! She's just so precious.

After living through the summer months in the desert, I know exactly how you feel about seeing some rain. It's so rare here too! :)
