Hat 332/265

When my grandparents were over, Emma grabbed my grandpa's hat and wore it for awhile. I practically had to beg her to give it back.

My grandparents got a kick out of Emma wearing the hat

Cool Emma

Loves the hat and her puffs!

Trains 331/365

Emma and Josh have this small train and they love it! Emma especially likes to lay on her stomach and watch it and Josh claps as it goes in a circle.

More Thanksgiving 330/365

Dan's parents were just coming home on Thanksgiving from their almost 3 week trip to Hawaii so we celebrated Thanksgiving with them on Saturday. I made a turkey dinner and we had a nice time!

Thanksgiving 328 and 329/365

We had a nice Thanksgiving at my parent's house. Emma and Josh ate a ton of food and the only thing they didn't try was the sweet potatoes because they had nuts on top of them (and Josh is allergic) But other than that, they did great. I can't believe this is their second Thanksgiving, they were so much older this year and even got to sit at their own table.

Josh liked the "Monkey in the box"

Another Daredevil 327/365

Josh has turned into a daredevil, too. I caught him jumping off the arm of the chair into the actual chair. He yelled "jump" right before he jumped and then when he was done, he kept saying "fun!" So cute.

Mid jump...

And he's done!

Kiss 326/365

Both Emma and Josh love to give kisses. They give them to characters in books, each other and even the wall. Today I caught Emma giving a kiss to Quincy from "Little Einsteins" and she even let her baby get in on the action.

Spider 325/365

We have a large spider that has made its home on the glass outside of our picture window. Emma and Josh love this spider! They want to feed it, give it toys and they always say they will catch it if it falls, its so cute.

Play 324/265

One thing that has changed with Emma and Josh is that they like to play now. I can give them a puzzle or a truck and they will play with it. They also are starting to play together, too. Of course, they still like to sit and watch Dan play games on his Ipod, too! And they ask for the games by name (I hear "fruit," "trucks" and "birds" alto when they sit with him)

Free Falling 323/365

Josh taught the kids how to "free fall" in the bed. Basically, they just lean forward and fall face first into the blankets. Emma loved it and did it about a million times!

She's up...

..and falling...

..almost down! (and look at her face, its priceless)

And down!

Hangers 322/365

Even with a house full of toys, Emma and Josh still love to sit in Josh's cribs and play with hangers. Go figure!

Josh was looking for the hanger that had Mickey Mouse on it

Of course one of them had to put the bigger hangers over their head!

Play area 320 and 321/365

The mall closest to us has an indoor play area and Emma and Josh love it. Of course, they also love running out of it so I normally end up chasing them around the mall, but its all fun, right?!

Stickers 318 and 319/365

Emma and Josh love to play with stickers. I peel them off and hand the sticker to them. They then place it on their paper and we talk about it (like what color is the sticker, what is on the sticker, etc) Of course, sometimes they decide they are done and just stick them on their faces!
