Snapshots From Our Week

7.26.2013



Emerson is getting to that point where she just hates sitting in the grocery cart. I used to be able to entertain her with snacks from home and Mickey on my phone, but she's over that now. I've finally resorted to the one thing I said I'd never do: bribery. This week it was a sprinkle donut. 


The Great Gatsby was one of my favorite books in high school. I remember reading it several times and just loving it. I saw the Kindle version on sale so I decided to buy and it and reread it. I have to say it wasn't nearly as good as I remembered it. I did like it but it wasn't amazing or anything.

We've gotten lots of Facetime in with our favorite guy. It's been really nice and E is always so happy to see her Daddy. And I don't know why my head looks so huge in this picture but oh well.

A few nights ago Emerson was playing with her little animals and I heard her singing so I snuck up for a listen. She didn't know I was there so I didn't get very close and the video is kind of quiet, but I thought it was the sweetest thing ever.


I found Dry Erase crayons at Joann's and I knew they'd be perfect in the laundry room (which also serves as our little art room.) Now our washer is our own personal whiteboard. The crayons work really well and Emerson loved it. I'm happy to report that it comes off just fine, too. You do have to put a little elbow grease into it. Either way I wasn't too worried about it. Our washer is old (one of our first purchases) so a few crayon marks won't hurt it anyway. :)


I got a bag of samples from Motherhood Maternity the other day and it included a baby bottle. Emerson was so excited to feed her baby. I think she's going to be such a great big sister.


During Emerson's dance class, they usually do "fairy dancing." When she first started, E would just stand there and watch the other kids. We don't have to worry about that anymore!

And that is our week in Iphone videos and pictures. We have absolutely nothing planned today and I'm pretty excited about it. :)

Love the videos! I need to find somewhere around here that does dance classes for Aubrey- she'd love it!

Allison said...

I love that she is feeding her baby doll when soon enough she can feed a real baby! Have you ever done a blog post on how you discipline Emerson? My boy, Evan is starting to "experiment" with my patience. I would love to know how you dealt with introducing time out/consequences!

I've never read The Great Gatsby- probably should! Have you seen the "new" movie remake?

Glad you've gotten lots of facetime with hubby!

The singing and dancing are soooo precious!
