She Did It!!!

As of Friday, July 25th (her 8 month birthday), our baby girl is on the move! I had gone to my parents after work to help them out with the boys (Ryan and Amanda went out of town for their anniversary) and, after a movie, I sat down on the floor with a styrafoam bowl and she started bookin' it to get it! She's already soooo fast! She's not up on her knees yet, but she's army crawling...It's sooo cute! Unfortunately my video camera isn't fixed and I haven't gotten any good pics yet, but as soon as I do, I'll post!

Up, Up, and (Almost) Away!!!

So, Little Miss Emma is up on her knees and rocking back and forth, but not quite going forward yet! Should be soon! I tried to take a picture to post, but the little stink just laid down on her belly and I couldn't get a good one. Hopefully I will get my video camera fixed so that I can get video of it. I don't know how to get it on the computer, so you may not get to see her in action, but I will probably get pics either way! I know you all are waiting in anticipation, but you will just have to wait! :o)

I found this on a friends blog and left a comment for her, so I have to do one for myself, so here you go!

1. Add a comment on my blog, leave one (or 2 or 3...) memories that you and I had together. It doesn't matter if you knew me a little or a lot, anything you remember!
2. Next, re-post these instructions on your blog and see how many people leave a memory about you. If you leave a memory about me, I'll assume you're playing the game and I'll come to your blog and leave one about you.

The Fourth

Hope everyone had a great 4th! Ron had to work a swap in the morning and then his regular shift in the afternoon, so we didn't see him pretty much all day. We started off with the day with the annual pancake breakfast at the church. It was pretty good. I'm not big on pancakes, but they had eggs, hash browns, and sausage. Then it was off to my parents house. The kids played for awhile and then we went to the grocery store for last minute items. When we got back, I tried to put Michael down for a nap, but that was not successful! He gets so stubborn sometimes! (I think he gets it from his daddy...tee hee!) I went back to my house so I could get a few things for the "party". I ordered the kids the Animal Safari Water Park thing from Fisher-Price. and took it over there. When the older boys woke up from their nap, we all went outside to play in the water.

The next Abercrombie & Fitch model...

After a delicious BBQ Ribs, Hamburgers & Hot Dogs, it was on to Homemade Ice-Cream and Fireworks...

Jordan got to help light them this year...

The Funny Things She Does...

So, Emma is pretty much moving around EVERYWHERE! She's not crawling forward yet, she just rolls and/or scoots herself to get around the room. When I leave the room and come back, I often find her in the weirdest places...

The other day I gave her a bottle and when it was all gone, it fell off and underneath the bouncer. When I turned around, this is what I saw...

Ahh, much better!
