Emma you are awfully cute these days, but this attitude that you have picked up is atrocious! You love to lean your neck back and arch your back and throw a fit, or throw yourself on the floor and throw a fit, or squirm out of your car seat (while being put in it) and throw a fit. It is a good thing that we love you so much! During stages like this your Nene always loves to remind “that this is why God gives them to you as babies, so you bond with them, and love them through the hard times.” She is always full of good advice.
Puff and Dick
Run and see.
Look up, Baby. Look up and see Puff.
Look up, Baby.
Look up and see Dick.
See Dick go up.
See Dick go up, up, up.
Oh, Jane. See Dick come down.
See Puff come down.
Down, down, down.
Oh, oh, oh.
See Puff come down.
You are also learning to spell, and you are proving to be more grown up and mature every day. Your daddy and I love you so very much, and are so proud of the Little Man that you are becoming. Speaking of Little Man this weekend while you and your daddy were headed to Bass Pro it was discovered that you have little man hairs all over your legs, and now you can’t wait to point out your “hairy man legs” to anyone that will stop and listen. I love you baby boy.

Within the past couple of days I have pulled this little doll out and let Emma and Lucy play with her. Yesterday Emma and I were “actually” playing with her, and Emma grabbed her blanket and pulled it by the lace and this stuff just ripped like soggy paper. I could not believe it. The lace was so delicate that it literally ripped easier than paper – it had just disintegrated. I am thrilled that I could pass this doll own to Emma to play with, but I wish that I had played with her more when I was little.
I have learned that it really does not pay to save things or collect things, and we just need to use what we have when we have it. I can literally apply this lesson to a lot of things in my life!
I am so proud of myself and I did not eat any donuts, but I did have a nice little cup of coffee as we were leaving. I am trying desperately, once again, to loose weight. Seems to be the broken record of my life! But we will see how it goes this time around.

Hope you enjoy all of these posts!!!!
Sweet story - At one point I heard Taylor say to Kenneth "Kenneth I wish that we were brothers."
Manna watched Emma Grace and Taylor, and we truly appreciated her for doing so. Ryan and I have actually had a date night twice in the last two weeks! I think we have gone about 2 year with out one so I guess we are making up for lost time.
Thanks for letting us hang with you last night Mary and Jonathan – we love you guys!
The other day the kids and I stopped by Krispy Kream to get donuts to celebrate successfully getting our flu shots. Taylor wanted an order of 10 donut holes and a donut, so I ordered him this and got Emma Grace a donut. I said to Taylor that his sister would probably want on of his donut holes when she saw him eating them. He argued that they were his, and he did not want to share. I reminded him that his sister was the one that actually had to get 5 shots at the doctor, and he got out lucky with the “flu mist.” ( Taylor did not actually have to get a shot, but as tradition we actually always go to KK after visiting the doctor!” Again he argued that they were his and he ordered them, and I came back with “Taylor we are a family that shares,” and this went on back and forth a couple more times. Finally Taylor said “fine mom I will just give my sister all of my donut holes so you won’t think that I am a bad son anymore.” Wow, is all that I have to say about that comment. I told Taylor to knock it off, but I was floored that he has learned to put the guilt trip on so thick at the grand old age of 5.
Yep, I just copied and pasted this story right off of Mary’s Blog, so I could have it for my own. As you read be aware that this is Mary’s writing. She entitled this blog post “Best Friends.”
I (Mary) dropped Lucy off at playschool this morning and as we walked in we were happily greeted by Emma Grace. Emma Grace waves and smiles so big when she sees her favorite cousin. I put Lucy down and Lucy ran and plopped down to sit next to Emma to have her morning snack. The funny thing about snack is that Lucy loves to eat it even though she eats three pancakes for breakfast at home. The workers told me that the girls are so sweet to each other. Then they told me a story which is actually why I started this post. They said," When Lucy wakes up from nap the first thing she does is goes over to Emma Grace to wake her up." I said," how does she wake her up." (I was thinking she softly rubs her back and whispers wake up BFF.) Instead they said that she lays on top of her. Ha. They also said that she doesn't wake up any of the other kids just Emma Grace.
Isn't that sweet! Well here is the rest of the story.
They girls have been going from 2 naps a day to one. Needless to say they are cranky when they get home. Laura has told me that Emma has been in the worst mood ever when she would get home like she wasn't getting enough sleep. Well come to find out Lucy has been cutting Emma's nap short everyday.
We missed you on Thursday Shannon, Chandra, and Leslie!

This is a picture of Ryan (dark headed) and Sean (light headed) both with pigtails. Don’t Emma and her Daddy look just alike!
This morning we noticed that Taylor has two of his bottom big boy teeth coming in. I am a little bit worried because the baby teeth in front are not the least bit loose. He kind of reminds me of a shark right now with rows of teeth, HA! He is pretty excited though, he ran around church morning telling people that his “Kindergarten Teeth” are coming in.
