Playing Catch up!

Wow!  Where in the world have we been??  I can’t believe it’s been so long since I last posted anything.  The last several weeks have been a whirlwind.  We have been busy trying to stay cool in this miserable Alabama heat! 

Sweet Emily Kate is growing so much.  I can hardly believe she will be 2 months old this coming week.  She has been a fairly good baby.  The poor thing has had thrush twice and a double ear infection.  Compared to Edward (as a baby), she is so much easier.  She sleeps good and for the last 2 weeks only wakes up for one feeding.  She just goes with the flow and spends a lot of time in her carseat.

Edward is learning more and more everyday.  He will be 28 months this coming week.  It’s amazing the things that he remembers.  He talks ALL the time and is all boy.  He loves to sing his ABC’s and count to 13.  In fact, he loves to put on a show for anybody!!!  He is a very loving brother and loves to take care of his “Emmi Kate”.  He has gotten a lot better with his meltdowns and seems to be adjusting to our newest family member.

Brooke has been gone majority of the summer.  I guess she has wanted to distance her self from the constant chaos and she’s the typical 13 year old girl.  She just recently returned from a two week trip to Kentucky, Michigan, Niagara Falls (Canada and New York), Boston and Virginia.  She traveled with her biological maternal grandparents.  She enjoyed her trip but quickly learned how much she missed us and that we weren’t so bad after all!!!!

We’ve enjoyed play dates, time spent with Gee (my mom) and time with Nana Clay (Thomas’ mom).  We have a jam packed week coming up and I can’t wait to blog about a Sip and See my mom is having for Emily Kate and my nephew William and a trip to the beach with my mother-in-law, sister-in-law, niece and my three kids.  Until then, here are a few pictures to update you.


This picture is so typical of Edward
