4 Teeth Less Wise

Kris had his wisdom teeth removed today.

He came home a bit loopy. He kept asking if he could call Jamie (his boss) to let him know he'd be into work in a couple minutes.

I don't think he's going anywhere today...

A rendezvous that started as a trip to the Germantown Library became an impromptu lunch at the Germantown Chick-fil-a. A little less academic, but equally as cool. Who new the library didn't open till 1 on Wednesdays?!

I don't know what he's doing in this picture. He must have been pointing out something on this little boy's face.

Emma didn't get to climb on any of the apparatus, but she sure did a good job of being cute!

A Tooth for a Tooth

Well, Emma's first tooth arrived on Sunday. It's always such a relief when one of those boogers busts through. Emma is in happy spirits.

Unfortunately, the same day her tooth arrived, Jack lost a big chunk of his! He was trying to take a zipper sweatshirt off and got tangled in it and fell face first into our kitchen floor. It was so sad. I never imagined something like this happening to my little boy. I tried to get a picture of it today, but it's kinda hard to capture, but it will work for our purposes.

(Of course every picture with Jack has to have lots of drool in it.)

Another milestone for Emma is that she can now roll from back to belly, and she sure loves doing it! She did it for her Nonna on Saturday for the first time. She's scootin' all over the place now, doing the belly crawl.

The older Emma gets the more Jack enjoys interacting with her. She makes him laugh now. This morning they both woke up at 5 and Kris brought Jack into our bedroom and I followed with Emma. They both laid on our pillows making each other laugh while Kris and I sat back and enjoyed them both in our drowsy state. We love being your parents, Big Jack and Sweet Emma.

Sick, Real Beds, and Complete Sentences

I hope this is Jack's last cold of the season. I think this one makes 5 for the winter. That's a lot of runny nose if you figure that each cold lasts 10-14 days. And now, when Jack gets sick, three days later Emma does too!

Well, at least when you're sick you get to watch videos! This was my boy this evening watching is favorite video, "Petting Farm". I thought he was cute sitting there in a daze with his balloon by his side.

I think about half of Jack's brain is occupied with things solely from this video.

In other news, Emma is finally sleeping in a real crib! She has been in a pac n play up until this point. (The second kid never has it as cushy as the first.) On Saturday Jack transitioned to sleeping in a "big boy bed" and bequeathed his much-loved crib to Emma Kate. He's taken to it well. Today for his nap he slept for 2 hours, got up, cried for some juice, played for an hour, and then fell back asleep for another hour. I'm not sure what to expect with this new bed thing. Some moms have said their kid stopped napping altogether when they made the transition. Lord help me, but my kid needs a nap.

One other update, Jack's vocabulary is skyrocketing. He's putting together very short sentences now. Today he said something like "Jack eat banana." (We've also noticed he loves to talk about himself. For those of you who know me well you'll agree with me that he gets that from his father).

So Cute!

She was just looking so cute this morning I had to share it with others...

Emma's First Cereal Meal

I'm not sure how much she actually swallowed, but our little Princess had her first rice cereal yesterday. By the looks of it I think she enjoyed it!

A Day at Nonna and Pop Pop's

Emma and Sophie had so much fun playing together. :)

A Day in DC

Yesterday we took advantage of the amazing weather and went to DC for the day.

Jack had so much fun chasing the birds and Emma greatly enjoyed playing with her toes!

Here's proof we let her out of the stroller:

The boys had a great time together.

Meanwhile, Emma fell asleep. I just couldn't resist turning it into a photo shoot. (Ok, so I rarely resist a photo shoot opportunity with my girlie.)

But with toes like those, who wouldn't want to take your picture!
Thank you, Babe, for making yesterday such a joy for all of us.
