Miscellany Monday

8.26.2013

-I was doing a little work on the blog this weekend and I noticed that I've done less than 100 posts this year! That makes me sad because I love looking back at old posts to see what we were up to. So, I'm going to do my best to get back into blogging more regularly!

-On Thursday afternoon, E and I were both needing to get out of the house so we headed to the Y to swim. I hate to admit that we haven't used the pool as much as I thought we would.  I'm hoping to go more over the next few weeks because she just has the best time every time we go. 

-While we were drying off she noticed her shadow and started dancing and watching it move. It was so precious.


-Jesse is getting better and stronger every day. He's able to get around a lot more and is able to go up and down the stairs now! He's been sleeping on the couch and I've been sleeping on an air mattress, so it was SO nice to be able to go upstairs and sleep in our bed. He's also been able to spend lots of quality time with Emerson.

-We went to a birthday party on Friday evening for some of our neighbors. They are twin boys and Emerson just loves them. They had a bouncer and she spent at least an hour in it jumping like a crazy girl!
(This isn't from the birthday party but it's cute, so I had to share it!)

-I've finally been motivated to get back into embroidery and sewing. I've made a few shirts for Emerson and baby sister and I have plans for many more!
 (Any guesses on baby girl's name?)

My mom made this skirt for Emerson about 7 months ago and I decided it was about time to make a matching shirt. I can't wait to see her in it!

-My dreams came true on Wednesday when I finally got the Vitamix I've been wanting forever. When we were in Abu Dhabi I was juicing almost every day and I loved it. We had to give the juicer back when we moved and I have missed it so much. I thought about getting another juicer but ended up going with the Vitamix instead because it grinds up everything and you don't waste any of the pulp. We have used it 2-3 times every day since we got it. I LOVE it!!

And that's about it for today. Tomorrow is my anatomy scan so I am super excited to see our sweet little baby again! :)
