the kid... :o)

Here's a little video of EmJ (and mama) reciting one of her favorite books (Moo, Baa, La La La!)... she's hilarious!!!

And some pictures...

I really like this picture... but I'm pretty sure she's looking at the tv... stinkin' kid!

As you can see, EmJ loves to climb on any and everything she can.
And she's obviously proud of herself!

This is EmJ's favorite lego... she does this all the time and it makes me laugh every time. She also loves to play under our table because it's tall and she can walk around under it. Sometimes she even takes books under there and will just sit and read... :o)

This is EmJ saying "Where's Mama?" She'll do it with anybody she can think of, especially Daddy once he's left for work. Love it!

Here she is waiting for Daddy to get home from work...

And one more little video of a semi-new skill EmJ is mastering...

Tomorrow is Jeff's birthday... so hopefully we'll have more pictures soon. :o)

Just saying hello!

Just a few new pictures of EmJ... :o)

Just saying hello...

This is a calendar of EmJ's cousins (Janae and Jonah) and her Auntie Amy and Uncle Ken. One of her most favorite things to do is look at the pictures and say "Hi Nae-Nae" and "Hi No-Na!"

Smile for the camera! (She's such a ham!!!)

"Just waving while I'm walking!"

As you can see, she's getting super steady on her feet now and it's so fabulous!

She's looking at her daddy... and you can see how much she just loves him! :o)

I got a super cute video of EmJ the other day, but it's just a tad to big to upload! Dang it! I'll try to take another one soon to post - so stay tuned!

Crazy Fun Weekend!

Well... we've had quite the weekend! It's been crazy around here, but we've had lots and lots of fun! Here a glimpse of what we did...
The park is one of EmJ's favorite places to go... so I thought I'd share a couple pictures.
Woo-hoo for the slide! :o)
Just playin' around - gotta love those dimples!
This weekend Grandma Chuck and Grandpa Greg (Jeff's mom and stepdad) came out to visit. Here's EmJ with Grandma Chuck - learning about the finer things in life (like KU basketball!)
Grandpa Greg helping EmJ play catch
Too cute...
Just playin around with Grandpa Greg

On Sunday, we went to Aurora to visit Jeff's family - but I forgot the camera! Darn it! EmJ had lots of fun - especially playing in the water with Great-Aunt Pam!

On Monday we hung out at Nana and Papa's house (Maren's parents) with lots of family. EmJ is becoming a sidewalk chalk artist! :o)

Hey guys! Did you see what I drew?

Jeff smoked brisket and ribs for everyone for Labor Day... let me just say - the BEST BBQ I've EVER had!!! We all loved it - including EmJ!

We had a great weekend - but this picture sums up how we feel - in need of a nap! This picture was taken last weekend. EmJ had woken up from her nap and Jeff went to get her - he came downstairs with her and this is what happened... apparently, neither of them were really ready to be awake yet! :o)
