After my husbands job transfer, a move across the country, and a new baby, I was exhausted. I needed to take time off and just focus on myself and my family. I didnt have time to blog anymore. I still dont have much freetime, but I wanted to just start up again with family type stuff so that one day I can look back at my blog and smile at the memories of my babies growing up.
My Emmie is 8 months old tomorrow. I cant believe she is that old, and that I have been living in this state for that long. I still feel like a Minnesota girl, I dont know if I will ever fit in here.
Emmie is into everything! My goodness, she is trouble LOL! She has been crawling since 5 1/2 months. She must get her hands on anything and everything. Especially if its her sisters! She laughs most easily at her big sister and looks at her with such admiration it fills up my heart with joy. Two little girls, how did I get so blessed?
She still sleeps great, always has. Thank goodess for that! She is always smiling, so happy to socialize. If she is sad, the instant I hold her she is calm. She reaches for me now, which makes me feel so loved :) She loves solids, but has become a litlle more picky lately. Today a tooth popped through, her very first one!
Her big sister is 4 now and starts preschool in a few weeks. She is so smart and says the funniest things, I am always laughing with her. She is nervous about school because she had a rough class over the summer. Some of the girls were mean to her which absolutely brok my heart into a million pieces. There is nothing worse than your child losing their little innocence and learning those hard lessons. I am trying to be positive about school and let her know what to expect. She will have different kids and a different teacher, so it should be a different experience. Its also at a church so I am hoping that will help infuse kindness, not bullying.
Life is good...stressful at times, but we are hanging in there. Luckily I have had lots of family come out to visit me, but I still miss them all like crazy. I miss being a quick car ride away. I miss them on the different birthdays and holidays. I miss seeing the joy my girls bring to them. So we are getting by, day by day.
I feel like I have missed so much in the online world! If anything is new in your life, I would love to hear about it! Hope you stuck around during my break and check back from time to time!
some pics of the fun we've been having together!
