    A very eventful day

    The day of Ethan’s Super Bowl(they didn’t win) was pretty eventful for Ethan.  He almost poked his eye out tripping at Oshkosh and then lost his first tooth. We went into Oshkosh to get Emerson a jacket, she didn’t want one (although she did end up getting one) so I asked Ethan to go and look at clothes. He went over to the boys side of the store but wasn’t exactly happy about it. He was mopping and pouting and ended up tripping and slamming his face into a metal hook protruding from the wall. It caught him at his cheek and went up to his eyebrow. Thank goodness for…

    Emerson

    I really neglected to blog about Emerson turning 3and I feel really bad about it so the next couple of posts will be about her. I don’t know how my sweet little girl, my baby, is already 3.  We made it through the 2s with little incident, so I guess it is only fair that the 3’s are hitting us hard. She has become defiant and outspoken, funny and artistic. She loves to dress up and sing songs into her Hello Kitty microphone. She plays mommy to her baby dolls and wizards, Mario and Luigi, and guns with her brother. Just when I think she couldn’t be any girlier she…

Well yesterday while I was making dinner Craig said she said da da and today when he got home from work she looked him right in the face and said dada. Picture my jaw hitting the floor. I am convinced that she was really calling him da…

    That's a sun

    For years I have been looking at squiggly lines left to guess what Ethan’s drawn and usually resort to “Tell me about your picture, baby” but not yesterday. Yesterday, Ethan said I’m going to draw a sun and then drew a circle with lines coming off of it. I couldn’t believe it. On another note while I was trying to put Emerson down for a nap Mr. Do It Himself got chicken nuggets out of the freezer and started eating them. He came in and said “Mama, I like them cold”. UMH, eww gross!! I called the company and they assured me that they were made out of already cooked…
