You ever have one of those great days where everything goes better than expected?
Friday was one of those days for us.
Emme had her 2 year check-up. She typically screams shrieks the entire time we are at the doctor (she doesn't like male physicians), so this time I scheduled her with a female nurse practitioner who was AMAZING and wooed Emme into actually enjoying her visit.
(Emme even blew her a kiss when she said goodbye!)
I promised a trip to the park if the kids behaved at the doctor, and we went, had a great time...and no one (even me!) threw a fit when it was time to leave.
We came home, and Emme and I crafted while Max napped...then Max and I played outside while Emme napped.
And finally, while we were settling down before bed, I did my last Pinterest check for the day and noticed that one of my wreaths had been pinned by Country Living (they were a guest-pinner for Etsy). I ADORE Country Living, so it was kinda like noticing a hot guy checking you out --LOL.
Saturday was a different story...oh well, you win some, you lose some.
When I originally started this blog, it was called "Max and Emerson," and it was supposed to serve as a journal for my babies. Then I started my business, and changed the name of my blog - and the focus changed a bit.
Max and Emme - Christmas 2010
Yesterday, Emme turned 2 years old, and just like everyone says...I can't believe how quickly the time has gone.
My pudgy baby is gone, and she has been replaced by a truly terrible,wonderful one-of-a-kind two-year-old (I say that with all the love in the world.)
This morning, we were on our way home from taking Max to preschool, and I was thinking about how quickly time has gone since Max was born.
A song came on the radio that's typically considered to be a love song, but it described how I feel about my babies.
I know it's incredibly cheesy, but I realized I've already forgotten so many details of their short lives. For Emme's birthday, I wanted to do a post to record this moment.
I can't believe how many details I've already forgotten, how many photo opportunitues I've missed (or lost on old phones), so I really want to work on this.
Some of my future posts may be a little journal-y, but I promise to include the good stuff too.
Emme's 2nd Birthday - note that she has her fork securely gripped and she's ready for cake! (That's my girl!) Immediately after lighting her candles, Max blew them out. He tried to do a second time, but daddy assisted Emme and blew them out for her.
At the moment, Max is whining and has asked for the same thing at least 25 times in the last 5 minutes. I don't want to miss a thing, but if I do forget something, I hope it's the whining....I'd be okay with that.
