Life changes

Sorry for the delay. Busy life changes have kept me from the blog. We decided as a family that I was going to go back to work full time (3 days a week plus an extra shift every other week) so that we could be together as a family. Oh yeah because Shawn will be staying home! He and Emolyn will get to spend the days together that I don't work and we will all get to spend the other days together, as a family. I am really looking forward to seeing Shawn more, and to having enough money to go see a movie every once in a while!
Emolyn updates include that she is teething like a maniac! She is shoving anything and everything in her mouth! I picked up those cool netting eating things Kristen and she loves it, thanks for the idea! She is eating some more foods but still prefers her mommas milk! We go to the Dr this friday to check on her weight but I think she is looking so big! She can almost sit up on her own buts its hard to show off since she seems to always be being held! I think she is going to start crawling soon because she can get her butt up in the air and her head and solders up just no at the same time! Which is fine by me I like her to stay in the spot I left her.
I hopefully only have the boot on for 1 1/2 more weeks. I am getting an xray before my next appt so that should give us all the answers. It is feeling better I am just sick of this boot.
I found this rad resale kids store from my friend Laura and it as the best quality kids resale clothes ever and so cheap! I got Emolyn 7 sleepers, 5 from the disney store, for $1.99 each. I could have bought so much more. But next time I will take in some of her Preemie clothes and trade them in for new stuff!
Emolyn and I have a horror story from going to the mall. I made a video blog about it but Shawn still has to fix it up for me. So soon to come! Oh and Emolyn makes her talking debut!

I am so happy for you guys...you will love sharing in the memories together raising Emolyn! I can't wait for Joe to get on the fire dept because the main reason for him doing it is to be home with us more!! 10 days a month is all he will work :) He starts his EMT basic tomorrow! I would love a little hidden camera in your house to watch Shawn with Emolyn...especially when she is a toddler and potty training ha! He will do great. love ya guys.

That top photo looks so much like one that I have of Shawn and Amy when they were little. Shawn's in the walker and Amy just harrassing him. I'll have to find it and post it sometime.
