Its been a hot week here, even though summer just officially started yesterday. Emma and Josh have spent the week playing in the baby pool, running through the sprinkler and eating ice cream. Sounds like summer to me!

1. She is becoming very independent.  She wants to do everything by herself including climbing into her car seat.  This means it takes no less than 15 minutes to get into the car and go anywhere.

2. She loves to run around and play ball with Dan.  She really likes catching the ball (or trying to catch the ball) but her favorite is kicking it.  She can even dribble a soccer ball and yesterday I watched her kick it all over the yard without stopping.

She loves beach balls, too

Pretty Emma


1. He has started calling us "Mom" and "Dad" instead of "Mommy" and "Daddy." He sounds so grown up saying it that way.

2. He loves to drink milk.  Its not uncommon for me to fill up his 10 oz cup all the way to the top and for him to hand it back 5 minutes later, saying "more please!"
