HUGE NEWS!!

Guess who hit 15 lbs?? EMMA!!! Our tiny girl finally hit the 15 pound mark last week weighing in at 15lbs 5oz!! And it "only" took her 5 weeks to gain this last pound, as opposed to the 8ish weeks it usually takes her to gain a pound, so our hard work is actually paying off :)
Emma has also had a speech explosion in the last couple of days. She went from having only one word, "dad" or "daddy" to saying "hi", "ding dong", and.... MAMA!!! This of course all happened after her speech therapist came for the week so I can't brag to her, but we are so excited. She's also "talking" a lot more and her play has become a lot more purposeful. Instead of pushing her little wagon around all.day.long, she'll play in her new kitchen and actually sit down and try a new activity for a couple minutes, which she never wanted to do before. Don't get me wrong, she still rarely stops moving, but we're making a little progress :)

Some of you Nuggets fans might know the "birdman"

We have our very own birdman right here at home :)

Emma says "bring it!"


We have some baby birds on our porch!


Happy Mother's Day!



I made a cake and had to show it off :) It's the "spring fling" cake recipe from the Market



Emma's new playhouse. My parents got if for her birthday and we finally put it up. She LOVES it! (and I love that she's out of the sun)
