Spring Break

Last week was our spring break. And while it doesn't change things much around our house..just no school Monday and Wednesday for Stella and no dance, I thought I had to make the week extra fun. Well, after looking at the pictures I took it looks like all Stella did was eat, but I promise you we did more than that :)
We tried new things..I bought Stella a snack of Nutella since I've heard raving reviews. Well, she loved it! I tried it and quite honestly I don't know all the hype, but that's just my opinion.
Despite this smile, Emerson was kind of a bear this past week (I blame teeth), but anyway we tried the teething necklace. I don't know what I think of it.
These poor girls wanted to play outside so badly, but of course it was a pretty wet forecast, so we did a lot of coloring (no pictures sorry).
We made sweet treats. Stella loved putting the M&M's on top.

We escaped and joined up with some friends for a little play date. These little ones watched Mickey Mouse Clubhouse like they'd never seen it before. Ha!

We stuffed our face with a yummy cupcake from sweet friends right before bed...perfect bedtime snack, right? IT'S SPRING BREAK!

Of course we dressed up like a princess so we could read about princesses!
And when the sun finally came out, we jumped at the chance to play outside.
YES, Stella loves this yellow polka dot dress and requests it almost everyday so if it's clean she's wearing it. I'm sure there will be many more posts with her sporting this dress.
Friday we had a blast at a tea party with some friends, but that will get it's own post. So on Sunday our little family topped off spring break with a trip out for frozen yogurt or ice cream as Stella insist it is. It was super fun!

13 Months..What you Love

 Miss Emerson, at 13 months you are keeping us on our toes. Yes, you are eating crumbs from your sisters chair here. I dont' know blame you...she just finished a Pioneer Women Cinnamon muffin.
 Now that you're a fulltime LOVE to climb
 Lord help us! I wish I could catch the look she normally gives me when I say no.
 You love to go into your sisters room and drag out her clothes. I mean love it. I hope this isn't a look inot the future teenage years. For some reason I don't think Stella will be as generous then :)
 Loving your baby.
Always on the go. You love being outside too. As soon as we open the door you're on the move.

This month has been a busy one for you Miss E. You started walking and continue to master the skill daily. You're working on 4 upper teeth, but still only have two on the bottom.
You're still a little peanut. I don't think you've reached 19 pounds yet. You're wearing 9-12 month clothing, size 2 shoe, and size 3 diaper.

You eat like a champ and love your sippy. You are a carb girl for sure :)
You usually sleep from 7pm-630am. I think you're in the process of dropping a nap, but on some days you still take two about an hour to two hours each.

You continue to amaze us each day and we can't wait to see what the future holds!

Love you Emerson Kate.


 We've been meeting new friends. Emerson so so excited to play with Boothe. I think she may have a little crush.
 We've busted out the bubbles in this awesome weather.
 We've been WALKING everywhere. I'm still getting used to her rounding the corner walking.
 We've been celebrating sweet friends birthdays. I barely took any pictures at Cilla's bday, but her mommy did an amazing job.
 We've been sliding...
and sliding. Emerson would do this all day if we let her.

Hope you've been enjoying the weather lately. I'm still in denial that winter is almost over. I feel like we didn't even get one this year.
