Happy Birthday Emily

March 28, 2020

One year old today and just a delight to have in the family. She crawls at a crazy pace and just loves going up stairs. She always rushes over to the bottom step and then turns around to make sure we’re watching. As soon as we make eye contact she’s off in a mad dash to the top.

She recently discovered graham crackers and just devours them with a grin. She loves talking and can say “uh oh” in the right context. She recognizes her name when called. She’s just a joy to have. Her personality is really starting to shine.

I really wanted her to wear this little hat but she would yank it off instantly. I barely snagged this.

Dad, can we play cars?

Well, it’s time to stay home. I’m actually pretty excited about the idea of keeping my kids home. They drive me crazy about half the time but that’s okay because the other half of the time it’s just incredible to see them become the little people that they are. Here’s to lots of playing and laughs and movie nights!

An escape to St. George

Winter is long, and exhausting and this weekend we had had enough. So we took off to St. George to stay with Kurt. Our first stop was the Train Park which is always a hit.

This morning as I was coming upstairs after taking a shower I saw that Elle had climbed in to Emily’s crib to keep her happy. I love my little girls.
