At Last

This happened a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't had a working computer to upload it.  Here I am singing At Last for one of my band concerts in the park.  It was a ton of fun!  Let me know what you think!!

There are going to be a lot of pictures in this post!  My computer has been broken, so I haven't been able to post anything.  But, here is the catch-up post! 

This is a quick video of Emalee's very first hair cut!  I'd wanted to cut it for a while, but Kirk didn't want me to.  Well, he finally relented and she got a quick trim.  My mom was here this last weekend, so I had her do it because I have no idea what I'm doing!

My mom and sister came to visit over Labor Day weekend!  We had so much fun!  We ate so much junk food, went out to eat, went and saw Eclipse together, and just had an amazing girly weekend!  My sister is also pregnant, and it is so fun to be expecting at the same time.  She's 14 weeks and I'm 24 weeks, so we are not that far apart.  It was funny to see how we are craving the same exact things! 

Here is our first pregnant picture together.  (I really should have not worn stripes.  wow.)

Here's a picture of me and my mom

I had to get a picture of both of them with Emalee.

Here is Grammy reading a book to Em.

Here's the whole group together!  I'm gonna miss them so much.  I really wished we lived closer.

Emalee found a binder of music that my mom had written.  She opened it up, sat on the kitchen floor and gave us a concert!  She knew it was music and she really wanted to sing!  It was so adorable.

My Big Performance

I'm a member of the Caldwell Centennial Band, and it is so much fun.  I get to play my flute, and I love that I still get the opportunity.  I'm probably the youngest player in there, and most of the members are over 70.  It's awesome!  We do concerts in the park every other Monday night during the summer, and this was at one of our concerts.  They always have someone do a kareoke number in the middle to give the players a break, and I was asked to sing!  I was so excited!  I'm singing 'Don't Get Around Much Anymore' and aside from a big voice  in the second verse I think I did pretty good!  I'd love to hear what you think!

Kirk was the one who did the camera work, and while I know how to turn a picture 90 degrees, I have no idea how to do it with a video.  You'll just have to turn your head to watch me ;)

4th of July

Here's a little of what we did together on the 4th of July

We went to the Caldwell Parade.  Afterward, there was a petting zoo in the park.  I was worried that Emalee would be scared of the animals, but she absolutely loved them!!  We didn't get the greatest pictures, but here are a few.  This is a camel that tried to eat her shoes and her hat.

She's trying to pet a baby goat here.

We finally had to put her in the cage with the animals because she couldn't ever get close enough!

Here she is with a sparkler during our firework show.  We had to wait until almost 10 pm because it doesn't get dark until then!

I know this picture doesn't look like much, but to me it's adorable.  She was dancing with the sparkler and this is a picture of her dance from behind.  She was so cute!

Here is a picture of Emalee and I during our amazing firework show. 

This picture has nothing to do with the 4th.  This actually just happened tonight.  Kirk gave Emalee a bath and then did her hair - this being the result.  She knew that she looked funny, and when I wanted to get a picture she just started to cry!  It was like she was so embarrassed.  It was too funny!

Lots of Pictures

Last weekend we had the Stephens/Stevens family reunion campout.  It was so much fun!  We camped just outside of Evanston, WY.  It was so great to be with my family again!

Here is Brad, Kirk, TJ, and Lindsay, with Emalee in the front - relaxing by the firepit.

Here is a quick picture that I took of me and my sister Jill.

This is how Emalee ate her meals - we just put a little chair right up next to a log, and she thought it was great!  She was such a trooper.

A cute picture of Emalee and her Dad.

This picture is blurry, but this is how her face looked 99% of the time we were there.  So dirty!!

And here is a picture of how her jeans looked the second she stepped out of the tent.  Covered in dirt.

Emalee had such a fun time with her Grammy!!  She didn't want to leave her side!

Here is Emalee with her cousins and Grammy - Hopefully she'll get some more cousins soon!!

We had 3 dogs up there and Emalee followed them around everywhere.  I'm so glad that she loves dogs! 

A quick picture of Kirk and I sitting by the campfire.

Emalee has had a rough couple of days - which is another completely long story.  But, we decided to have a fun day with her today to help her feel better.

This is a picture of Emalee and Dad at the park.  The look on Emalee's face completely says how she felt about the park - D IT!

We bought a kiddie pool and Emalee had so much fun!!  She was crazy with the hose in her hands.  She splashed all of us, but she was laughing the whole time. 

Here is a picture of her swimming with her cousins.  They had a great time together.

It was a really fun day for Emalee.  Hopefully she starts to feel better!!

Some Big Updates

Here are a few updates as to whats been going on in our lives:

 Grammy (my mom) came to visit!!  Emalee loves her Grammy and they had such a fun time together.  I love the look that Emalee is giving her in this picture.

We went camping for the first time this summer.  Emalee was in 7th Heaven!  She loved the dirt, the tent, the fire, and especially the smores.  This is a picture of her right after she ate a huge marshmallow!

A cute picture of Emalee and her dad right after they shared a smore.

She loved camping so much, but it completely wore her out.  We took this picture about 2 minutes after we got in the car to head home.  She was exhausted!

And, lastly - drum roll please!!!  We are having another baby!  This was an ultrasound when I was 7 weeks along, and now I'm over 12 weeks.  Our due date is December 29th, and we are so excited!  This pregnancy has already been going SO MUCH BETTER than Emalee's.  We feel so blessed to be parents again, and can't wait until December!!

A few pictures

I know that I haven't posted in forever!! 7 months to be exact.  So I'm not even sure if anyone is going to even see this post.  Emalee has changed SO much!  She's walking and bumping into everything.  She can say anything - our favorite is 'I love you' which sounds more like 'I view', but it's still cute. 

Here she is sitting in one of her cousin's chairs.  She always thinks she is such a big when she sits here!

Her grandpa is probably her favorite person on the planet right now.  She just loves him!  He had surgery this day, and Emalee knew that he needed some comfort.  So she crawled on his lap and just stayed there until Grandpa was asleep.  And, luckily, her Grandpa loves her just as much!

She loves to crawl up on this little stool and look out the window.  She's always fascinated by the things she sees.  Especially if a big truck drives by!

Kirk is a t-ball coach right now, and Emalee loves wearing his hat!  She will leave it on for a long time - just trying to be like her dad!

This is the face I get to see every morning after breakfast.  She's completely covered in oatmeal, because she insists on feeding herself.  Messy, but adorable.

Pictures Pictures Pictures!!!

I've been really bad at posting recently because I've been borrowing my sister-in-laws computer, and I didn't want to take up too much time. But, I decided to just do it tonight. I've got a ton of pictures!

We went out to lunch with Uncle Brent!! It was great to see him again, and he had a ton of fun with Emalee.

This is what Kirk and Emalee look like every day when Kirk gets home from work! She gets so excited when her daddy comes home!!

I've been going running in the mornings, but it's been pretty chilly. So, I dress up Emalee like and eskimo and she goes with me. She looked so adorable I had to take a picture!

Here she is ready for Halloween!!!

I took her outside a few days ago to enjoy the mildly warm weather. And she is in a ball phase right now - she just loves them!!

She looks adorable in this picture!!! One of my favorites

I gave her a flower and she was fascinated by it.

She loves being up in the air. She grins so big everytime!

She loves being on her daddy's shoulders, too.

Her face is cute in this picture. "Enough kisses, Dad!!"

I cracked up when I took this picture. She looks so annoyed with me.

She loves playing with her spoon after she eats.

Her high chair is right next to the blinds. She LOVES playing with the string. It's so cute. She gets scared when the blinds fall down. That's what the video is below.
