Eight Months

Emery is now 8 months old. I am so in love with this little girl. She is absolutely crazy, but Eric and I wouldn’t want her any other way. She has so much personality and is so spunky!

Milestones this month:

Along with army crawling she can now real crawl. She still prefers to army crawl because she is so much faster but about half the time she is really crawling.

Learned to pull herself to the standing position. She pulls herself up to everything? She is starting to become more stable but is still a little wobbly.

She is also starting to cruise along the furniture.

Emery also learned how to put herself into the sitting position from her tummy.

She is getting 4 more teeth. She has 4 right now that have broken through and her 2 front teeth are almost there and then her k9’s on the top as well. She has been a little fussy while this has been going.

Emery is sleeping so much better! Most of the time she sleeps all night but she still has a few nights where she cries for an hour or two.

Emery is not the best eater. She goes through phases where she eats well for a week or so and then hates it again. She actually really likes fruit but even that is hard to get her to eat.
She loves to imitate noises that we make. She thinks is so funny.

Emery Loves:

To feed herself. She loves puffs and cheddar baby Cheetos. She gets so excited when she sees me pull them out and can’t wait for more when she runs out
Her silky and binky. She really is completely obsessed.
Maddix. She mauls him all day long and he just loves it! She follows him around and wants to be playing with whatever he has.
To be noisy. She is constantly jabbering and screaming. She is starting to say mama, mama, but I’m sure it’s not referring to me
The bath! We have been bathing her in the sink and she loves that she can splash and play with the running water.
Her walker. She loves that she can be mobile and run all over the house. She can maneuver it anywhere and can even go on the carpet.

Emery Hates:

Getting dressed. She still screams whenever something goes over her head.
Being left alone. If I leave the room she crawls so fast to get to wherever I’ve gone.
Taking medicine.

We Love you Emery!


That's what Maddix and Cohen are!
They are each others best friend and Enemy all at the same time!
They seriously love each other so much but can also fight like no other.

We were lucky enough to have Cohen stay with us for a few days.
Maddix and Cohen had a blast!
We love you Cohen!

I’m so glad when daddy comes home…

We Love when Eric comes home to visit.

Maddix is especially excited and he loves going to the airport to pick him up, every time he asks if he can go on the plane too.

Eric also took Maddix to play basketball and fishing. By far his favorite thing was fishing! They went twice and he is now obsessed!

Emery enjoyed watching with her mommy!

Idaho Falls

We took a trip up to Idaho to see “the Girls” Maddix loves them and had a blast playing with them. Aunt Lisa, Cohen and Zander came up too and Nicole and Brady had a full house! We had so much fun and all the little kids loved playing all day and night with each other.

Went to the park!
The boys where more entertained with Papa Rog then the toys!
Emery and Zander sharing the sink together and having a blast!

While we were there Kendahl turned 7!

We also were able to go to Kendahl an Payton's Dance Recital. They both did so well and looked so cute...

Mother's Day

There is truly no greater joy in my life than being a mother.

It can bring me to tears at any given time when I think about how much I love them and what I wouldn't do for them. I never knew how much I could love someone.

Maddix, I am eternally grateful to be your mother. You make me smile and laugh every single day. You have the cutest little personality. You are such a mommas boy and I love it! The way you talk and how you express yourself makes my heart smile. I love when you wake up from your nap and you want me to cuddle with you and how when I’m putting you to bed and I say I love you then you say “I love you too or I love you more”

Emery, you have blessed my life in more ways than I can count. You are so crazy but so sweet at the same time. If you could talk you would probably say “mom! Please quit kissing me! You’re smothering me!” I can’t help but kiss you and try to cuddle you all day long. I love when I get you out of bed you pull down your bumper so you can see me, like you know I’m coming to get you and you just can’t wait another second to see me!

To my mother and mother in law, I love you both and am truly so grateful for everything you have done for us. Thank you for the example you have always set for me and for the support you continually show our family.

I’m a big kid now!

A couple weeks ago I decided I would potty train Maddix, I have been dreading it and figured it would be a difficult task. Day one started out pretty rough, we had 5 accidents before noon. At noon the first day he went in the potty for the first time. He was so excited. Every time he would go after that he was so fascinated with the process. He kept saying “Momma, it comes from that hole!”

Since day 1 Maddix has only had 2 pee accidents and 2 bowel movements where he didn’t make it to the toilet.

I am seriously so proud of him and amazed at how well he has done. He still loves that he is a big boy and gets so excited that he can go by himself!

Way to go Maddix!
