Happy 2nd Birthday, Emma!

Two years ago today...

A prayer was answered...

and a family was created...

Since then, there has been more laughter...

More smiles...

More love.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Emma!!!

The BIG girl bed

Today was Emma's first nap in her big girl bed...

Her big girl room is almost finished...the headboard comes in tomorrow...just in time for her 2nd birthday on Friday. More pictures of the completed big girl room to come :)

4th of July!

We had a great 4th of July this year. We spent the day at the river with our friends Mindy & Kenny Chadwick and Becca & Cory Hixon. Both couples have little girls right around Emma's age, so it was lots of fun!
Our day consisted of...
Watermelon eating
Riding on the boat
Enjoying each other's company
and just soaking up the rays!

Fun News!

I have some very exciting news to share...I'm pregnant! Baby #2 is due December 27, 2009. Brian, Emma, and I are very excited about this new addition to our family. I am about 9 1/2 weeks pregnant now, so I would like to ask for your prayers that this will be a healthy pregnancy and baby. I had blood pressure issues with Emma, so I am hoping to avoid that this time around. My morning (actually all day) sickness has been a little hard considering I have an almost 2 year old this time around, but I continue to remind myself that the nausea is actually a good sign. I'll keep you updated as the pregnancy progresses...we look forward to meeting him or her just in time for Christmas :)

Happy Birthday, Brian...a little late!

I've been so bad about posting lately! Brian's 28th birthday was May 4th, and I'm just now getting around to posting a few pictures from that. I made him a cake this year...not beautiful...but it was only the 2nd cake I've ever made. (Notice in the 2nd picture that Emma sneaked a bite of cake and knocked over Brian's candle!) As you can see, Brian had a laid back birthday this year...hence him shirtless and Emma pantsless. What can I say...we're rednecks, I guess!
