Emily has never really been interested in the TV. We tried popping in a Baby Einstein video a few months back and she gave it a quick glimpse and walked on. But here recently shes started becoming  more interested. Earlier today she walks over and hands me my pillowcase off my pillow. She had robbed her bed of blankets and mine of pillows and was making her own pallet in our bedroom floor! After she was done getting her lounge spot just right she stretched out and watched about 10-15 minutes of a cute little cartoon on Disney called Kai Lan!! Shes becoming such a big girl..

Basketball Season

So the boys are playing Basketball this winter. Justin played one season a couple years ago, but this is Nicks first year! They are both having a BLAST (and so is mommy & daddy). Justin has already had two games (both they won...YAY) and Nicks had one game so far and they also won, even though they don't "really" keep score at his age!..

They are both so much fun to watch, but in different ways. I find myself on the edge of my seat and my hands blistered from clapping after Justins game. His age group is really competitive and its so fun watching them go back and forth. Both games have been close and had nail biter

And Nicks age is so much fun to watch because they are just learning the game. They usually have NO CLUE were to go, what to do, but dang they are so cute in their little uniforms, dribbling that ball down the court. My camera died at the last games, but I was able to grab a video of Nick with his first foul shots. Ill be sure to grab some of Justins next week!!!

Snow Day(s)

Well we were blessed with a few inches of snow again this week! Sunday night we had about 4-4.5 inches come in and then Monday night about another 1/2 inch of the white stuff.. Joe stayed home from work Monday and they had a blast playing in the snow. This was Emilys first real time to go out and play in the snow. Last year she was just too small! I was afraid she wouldn't care for the snow, but boy was I wrong. The girl loved it and I had to literally pick her up and bring her inside because she refused to come in herself.. After we came in it was hot chocolate and naptime!!! I love my snow days, but we are at the point today we are all going stir crazy! So it can leave anytime it wants too...

Sad/Good Day

Today was kinda hard for me, but thats just b/c I over think it! Today Emily and I sat down and together took her crib down! Over the weekend Daddy and I fixed Emilys room up with her new Big Girl bed and moved all her toys from our room to hers! This week she did awesome and slept every night in her room, in her big girl bed! So I knew it was time to say goodbye to the crib that held all three of my munchkins!

So now it sits in the garage waiting to be hauled off. Its hard to say goodbye to the thought of an infant, a baby, a little munchkin and say hello to the rest of our lives. Its slowly hitting me that our "baby" days are over now that Em is 20 months old. Its a sad but good day!

goodbye old trusty crib, goodbye Nicks chew marks, goodbye Justins marker marks, goodbye Ems toy bang It was put through the ringer!!

Emilys new "Big Girl" Room & Bed.. I think she likes it...

Changing Table has now been converted to a "plush" dream house...
