Emall Cut

Our favorite joke when we were little was :
Q:"Did you get a hair cut?"
A: "Nope, I got emall cut!"

Q: "What's emall cut?"
A: "I got them all cut!"

Cute- I know. But we loved that joke and repeated it time and time again.

So, now Emily Grace has had them all cut!!! It was getting a little curly, a little straight, a little frizzy and flat-out all over the place. So we took the plunge and cut 'em all!

As you can see from the date on the pictures, I'm about a month late posting these. Sorry about that!

EGU's First Steps


IT HAPPENED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Drum roll please......

Emily Grace took her first steps last night! As you all predicted, it was more of a run than a walk- but I don't care- IT HAPPENED! YAY! Chris and I had tears in our eyes. Of course, I ran for the baby book to write this all down. (We're also learning to pee pee in the potty.) Man this is all happening fast! I'll try to post a video tonight of our new little walker!

Next stop- big girl bed...

Lord, please be with the loved ones of Daniel Swanson. I want to say something profound but I can't. I'm completely shocked and numb at the fact that the person who sat beside me day after day, who shared comical or frustrating details of his life from time to time, who had a son he was proud of, who I told to have a good weekend, is now gone. May peace be with him and his loved ones on this sad Monday morning.
