Everything Embry: March 1

Last Sunday at Home

Books and snuggles with Daddy

Tea party with Great Grandma Gordon

After Grandma treated us to a yummy lunch out!

Trying to teach her what "one more minute" really means

Snow Day in Dallas

Monday morning we woke up to a layer of snow...really ice. Unfortunately Jacob still went to work, but E and I were homebound. We got out twice to play in it in the morning and then our neighbors came over that afternoon and Embry and Eliot each decorated an "E" cookies I had saved in our freezer.

SNOW!! (Yes, I know it was pretty much ice, hah!)

E and A enjoying the snow

E was running laps in the backyard which I was strongly encouraging to guarantee a good nap ;)

Fell asleep in the middle of reading

Decorating her E cookie

Showing a TAD more interest in sitting and reading books on her potty chair....

Austin Visit

We were lucky to get out of Dallas Tuesday afternoon when the sun was shining and everything melted. Dallas got more ice Wednesday and tons of snow Friday! We loved hanging with family-especially my grandparents from Chicago, seeing a bunch of friends (including meeting one of my besties baby boy), a "sprinkle" (mini baby shower) for my niece coming in April, and Embry's first sleep over with her grandparents!

Captured the sweetest moment while I was putting her to bed. So glad I had my phone in my pocket. I was singing "Twinkle Twinkle" she started rubbing my face....sweetest girl. Love doing bedtime when Daddy's not around =)

Comfy cozy in "Mimi's crib"

Working with Mimi and Papa's tools

She just loves babies

Stealing Great Papa's milk shake

Embry's First Sleepover at Kiki and E-Pa's House

Friday Embry had her first sleepover at Kiki and E-Pa's house! She's of course slept there since she was a few weeks old, but always with us! She and I were scheduled to spend the evening there and have dinner, but since Ruthie's baby "sprinkle" was the next morning it made since for Embry to spend the night there and hang with E-Pa during the sprinkle. She had SO much fun and didn't even ask for Mommy or Daddy when she woke up the next morning. When I picked her up Saturday afternoon she wasn't quite sure what to do! She immediately showed me the puzzle she and E-Pa were playing with, then ran and gave me a big kiss....then wouldn't stop kissing me. Way too sweet!!

Ready to go with her overnight bag!

Making cookies with Kiki

Bedtime stories with E-Pa

I got picture updates from EPa after they played they went to DQ for lunch!

And the big finish, of course ice cream!

Lucy's "Sprinkle"

My mom and I hosted a "sprinkle" (a small shower) for Ruthie and baby Lucy on Saturday! We had fun putting together girly stuff and desserts and treats for the party and spoiling our little Lucy Girl!
The Fanning ladies! We especially missed you Tomi!!!

Lucy Hart cookies I made =)

Everything Embry: February 22

Play, Play, Play

Beading, beading all day long

I had to wear the was quite heavy! LOL

Feeding her baby a cup of milk

A new "thing" this week, giving her toys and dolls baths in the sink.

As much as she loves beading, and as much as she loved her candy necklace last weekend, I bought Fruit Loops to have her make her own "candy" necklace and she LOVED it! She concentrated on it for a good 30+ min, then, of course, loved eating it!

Modeling her necklace

So much fun!

Embry and William playing fetch at open gym...haha

Getting so big at the park!

Looking for our house on our walk with her fake binoculars

We hadn't been to the Dallas Museum of Art lately so we went and she had so much fun in the kids area

Birthday Parties

Saturday we had two birthday parties. Our favorite neighbor, Eliot, turned four at had a party at a park on the lake. Then in the afternoon, we had our friend William's cowboy birthday party!

Ready for "school" (MOPS)

Such a happy girl

Looking so old!

She has chosen this book for nap everyday this week---it's a photo album of from her first Christmas when she was 3 months old. She loves going through each picture and telling me who everyone is....especially "ME BABY"

We had to go back to Costco for the millionth (third) time in a week, so we treated ourselves to ice cream

Her favorite books are the Fisher Price flap books and we have most of them, but found one we didn't have at Goodwill! Woo hoo!
