Good morning

Just wanted to let the 3 of you that read this know that Emolyn is like 80% potty trained. Its very exciting. We ran out of diapers and instead of going to the store we said "you have to wear your big girl panties there are no more diapers" and she did it! Shawn did go buy her Elmo panties which helped but still!
Its fun to think of having another baby in the family. And a little scary of course. I love the baby stage. holding and feeding and cuddling. Im glad Emolyn still likes to cuddle with me.
We have a busy beginning of summer planned so look forward to some vacation pictures while I can still get out of town! Mexico x 2, payson and New York! Shawn and I are taking a 5 day trip in May, sans Emolyn. It should be awesome!

Garden and special news!

I haven't posted about my garden yet! I took this pictures shortly after planting and wow has the whole thing taken off! Shawn created an above ground planter for me from some recycled pavers (Thanks Try family) and we filled it with soil and mulch and were on our way. Our broccoli yielded one delicious stalk.
Our special gardener is very helpful. She loves to tell us when the srawberries are ripe!
And of course help water.
We have had some delicious salads from our 2 lettuce plants. Our onions are sprouting like crazy and our tomato plant is 4 times the size. but only like 3 tomatoes :(. Our bell pepper plants have yet to bring any food but look really healthy and are growing!
And a quick flash back to Easter of last year. Look at this little peach! How precious!
And guess what? By Easter next year she will be a big sister! We are having a baby in October! We are so excited. Yesterdays ultrasound said it looks like another girl! Emolyn keeps saying "sister"! Its pretty fun!

Easter + Emolyn DDS

Emolyn had a great Easter filled with a super cute dress, gloves and miles of candy. But unfortunately due to my need to keep the lights on at home I had to work. So I set out her dress and her little basket, and off to work I went. Cold and alone. And Easter is supposed to be about celebration. But look how cute she looked!
Recently Emolyn has been fascinated with teeth, mostly my teeth. And she has been investigating them.Why she has to pinch my nose I don't know.

But I get a kiss after so its all worth it.Emolyn Kate (as she calls herself) has taken to being very independent. Both with going potty (yes!) and cleaning up. She is also very into candy and cookies, awesome. But she still holds n affection for veggies so we are working on keeping that relationship open! She loves to give hugs and "massages" where she rubs your shoulders for 5 seconds. And while she might be without clothes around the house she is never without shoes.
