It has been forever since I posted, and I apologize, but the summer has flown by! When Cade got done with Mother's Day Out, I was worried that we would be bored, but that is not the case. We have been having so much fun! Last summer, we couldn't do a lot since I had just had Emmy. So we are making up for it now. We have spent tons of time at the pool, and have found a couple of fun places to go on those really hot days. The summer will be over before we know it, then both Cade and Emmy will be in MDO. Hard to believe! I have posted some pictures below of the babies:
Cade is so into golfing these days. His beloved Pap got him these "real metal golf clubs", as he calls them. Note the cute little mini glove, too. He actually has a pretty darn good swing, and already can hit farther than me- ha! Heath has even taken him to the country club to play a few times, which he loves! Anything to be like his Daddy!
This is his other favorite activity this summer...playing baseball. he would let you pitch it to him1,842 times if you could! Like the golf, he is a pretty accurate hitter;)
Probably the highlight of Cade's summer (to me) is his swimming. After the first round of group lessons, I signed him up for a private lesson and oh my! Money well spent! The first lesson, he did not want to leave the steps, and by the last lesson, he was going off the board and swimming under water. He still needs plenty of help in the water and likes to wear his floaties some, but he has done such a great job learning. Pictures to come...
These two have been really playing together well this summer. This was an after church tea party- ha (future blackmail?)! As sweet as it is when they play nice, they definitely have their fighting moments, too. Emmy can definitely hold her own, though! She's gonna be a scrapper:)
And what about the princess? Well, we have finally cut our fourth molar. It has been a l-o-n-g month of teething, but we have reached the light at the end of the tunnel! She now has 12 teeth. At her one year appointment, she was only 35% for height and weight. She is a little peanut, which is funny because she is the best eater! The girl will eat (or at least try) almost anything. She is finally fully weaned ( I thought I would be sadder about this, but I was ready!), and loves to drink milk.
She is not walking yet, but can stand on her own and cruises around everything. I think she could walk if she really tried, but she shows no interest. Why walk when you can be carried? Back to the reason that she is the princess of the house...;)
As you can imagine, she has been began talking up a storm since her birthday. She says lots of words including mama, dada, up, down, bro bro (brother), Tucker (our dog), duck, cracker, drink, baby etc. Of course they don't all sound exactly like they are supposed to, but we know what she means;)
I worried about her being a tomboy because she has an older brother, but she is definitely more into her baby dolls and stuffed animals than Cade's trucks and tractors. She wants to hug, kiss and love on them at all times. Sometimes, she wants to hold 3-4 at once. She has also started blowing kisses (so sweet) and loves to give hugs!
So that is the latest with us! Until next time...
