Never a Dull Moment

We are about to have a new baby in our family....................................................................................................................and it is not from me!
We are so excited because my sister in law is going to be induced in the morning. Baby Reid will be born sometime tomorrow. I have never been a "real " Aunt before. I can't wait. I know he will be beautiful!

Emily always "over" smiles in her pictures, showing every tooth in her head. I told her to just look normal. This is her normal.

Emily has some funny sayings lately:

When Steve and I are talking about something she says, "What you speaking of?"

She tells me at least twenty time a day that she is a big girl and she also says,"I is a girl." She is very proud to be a girl.

She is also hung up on saying,"you think that be a great idea?" For example: "I going to watch Barney, you think that be a great idea?" " I going to eat dinner, you think that be a great idea?" But, she has trouble with the gr sound so it is freat. Makes me smiles every time.

When I try to get her to bed, for nap or bedtime, she says,"But, I didn't yawn!"

I am always telling her that she can do things when she gets bigger. Lately she has been telling me that I can do things when I get little. For example: "Mom, when you get little you can play with this Barbie, you think that be a freat idea?

I am fixing to put her to bed and I know what she will say when I say bedtime: But, I didn't yawn, I not yawning!"

HA HA...I love the "you think that be a freat idea?" My 2 year old is always saying, "wha happen?" Tonight she fell off the bed at my Mom's she's balling (we thought she may have broken her arm...heart attack for Mommy... but she's fine) and she looks at us, stops crying and says, "Wha happen?" and then "Oh I fall off da bed"

It's fun to watch them learn to talk.

Congrats Auntie! Emily reminds me of my Kennedy. Which I guess I should say a prayer for you now as she gets older! HA! Kennedy will be super tired and rubbing her eyes and say, "I'm not really tired. My eyes just are itchy. Must be my allergies." YEAH OKAY! Marlie still looks like SK I just cant get over it. I even showed my husband!

So cute! I love all of those sayings. When I'm talking to Derek or on the phone, EG will say "What you talkin'?" Cracks me up! Congratulations on the new addition to the family. Loved how you said right away, "It's not from me." That made me laugh!

Your girls are absolutely adorable! I followed your blog over from Kelly's! I love Sarah Kate's carseat cover! I was actually wondering if you could buy them somewhere or if it was a gift?!

Stopped by from K's Korner too! :) Seriously, Emily is too funny!! Your girls always look so sweetly adorable. Where do you find all of their dresses? I wish I lived in the South...I have such a hard time finding classic dresses with the smocking and everything. My oldest is having her 5 year portraits next month and I've been searching for the perfect dress!

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
