So I really want to change the pic on the top of this page to a new updated one.  I can't figure it out!!  I need a crash course on blogging!

Well.....this little doll turned TWO earlier this month!  I wanted to write a little bit about my Emily Sue at the age of 2!

*  She's starting to ask a lot of questions..."Where are we going?"  I hear this everywhere we go.  I give her the answer and 2 minutes later she asks again.  Over and over.
Other questions she asks...."Where's "Kiki" (what she calls Kaitlyn, her sissy)  "Where's Dadda", "Where did my pa-pa (paci) go?"  Also "What are you doing??" is what she says as soon as she walks in a room and finds me.

*When she wakes in the morning, I hear the sweetest voice..."Ohhhh Moooommyyyyy!!!!

*She does the cutest of them is she bends down and pats her legs (as if you would call for a dog to come...) and she calls for people.  Like she pats her legs and says, "Come here momma!"

*She has a crazy cute obsession with the MOON!  "Moon out??"  Moon and stars we always have to draw on paper or with chalk.  If the moon is out, she HAS to go see it.  And she really really really wants to HUG it!  My mission is to make a stuffed animal or buy one with a big soft moon so she can actually HOLD and HUG the moon!  If she's cranky or sad or hurt, seeing the MOON ALWAYS makes it all better!

*Emily LOVES LOVES LOVES to read books.  Of all her toys, she would rather grab a book and have someone read to her or "READ" herself.  She will make up words and find things in the pictures she knows and says them.  It's so fun to watch her.

*She can count to 11 and say her ABCs...she can also name animals and say their sounds.  She can recognize the letter E (for Emily) M (for momma) D (for Dadda) and K (for Kaitlyn)  Sometimes she can say A (for Apple)  We are working on colors and shapes.

*Emily is very sensitive to sound.  She didn't like the vaccuum for a long time.  She doesn't like being in crowds and clings tight to momma.  She doesn't like very many guys and is more comfortable with a soft voice.

*She loves to eat Peas.  Even frozen peas.  She also loves anything chocolate.  She loves to eat ICE pieces.  She lovest to eat fruit snacks, yogurt, macaroni, french fries, fish sticks, eggs, rice, broccoli soup, strawberries and other fruit.  Oh and a sucker will totally help her when we are trying to get through grocery shopping.  Well most snacks will help keep her distracted/busy.

*Sometimes we have a hard time figuring out what she's trying to say.  If we do figure it out, she smiles so big and starts to laugh, sometimes she will clap for us.  Aww she has such an adorable big smile and you can see her scrunch her nose and show her teeth.  It's precious.

*Lately when talking to her, she says, "hmm" alot.  I think she knows what we are saying, she just wants us to keep repeating ourselves.  She will say Hm? a whole lot if you let her.

*She knows what she wants and she will tell you a definite NO or YES!  She can say the whole sentence, "I don't want that momma." She also says, "Uh-huh!"

*Favorite phrase she says quite a bit is "Hold you mommy!"

*when getting settled on the couch to read a book, she will sometimes say with a sigh, "ALRIGHTY"

*She loves our dog and is a little too rough on her with pulling her ears.  She runs around the back yard with her and just laughs and laughs.  Molly luckily is a very easy going dog and will put up with a lot!  Emily will say, "Ohhhhh Moweeee, come here!"

*She copies Kaitlyn a lot!  She will repeat anything she says or does.

*She's been trying to jump lately.  She wants to so bad.  She enjoys going out and jumping on our small trampoline.

"Emily loves many different shows..we really don't watch TV but once or twice a day...her favorite shows are Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Elmo, Doc McStuffins, Sofia the First, and Peppa Pig.  She LOVES the movie Frozen and can sit through nearly the whole thing.

*Emily loves to sing.  She can pick up on a song (especially) from church very quickly and will sing it all day long.  She loves "Let it Go" and "Do you Wanna Build a Snowman"  She also likes "Shake it off" by Taylor Swift.  :)

This lil sweetie is a joy to be around and we love her soooo much!  I am so glad I finally sat down and recorded all that I can think of for my 2 year old before she gets any bigger!

VACAY 2015

We have been having a wonderful summer!  We went on vacation to Port Aransas, Texas in mid-June.  The girls loved the beach!  We built sand castles, played at the beach, jumped waves, looked for sea shells, ate at great restaurants, went to St. Joe's Island and went to the Texas State Aquarium.  We also went to San Antonio for a night and road a boat on the riverwalk.  We also went to Rain Forest Cafe.  Coming home wasn't so fun, we got in a bad car accident.  Thank God we are all okay...but I want to focus this blog on the good times we have as a family.  Here are some pics!

I'm back in 2015

It has been a really really long time since I've been on here... Not sure if anyone will read this, but I would like to try to start posting again every once in awhile. I am so glad I had this blog when Kaitlyn was smaller... So much that I wrote about her that I will be able to keep forever.  Since then, Emily was born!  She's now 20 months old. She has brought even more love and happiness to our little family. I have enjoyed seeing her little personality form.  Here is a little bit about Emily:

🌸she loves to eat!  I've never seen a baby eat so good as her. She will eat anytime anywhere. One of her absolute favorite foods is green peas.
🌸emily loves to cuddle!  I still have to rock her to sleep for naps and nighttime. I don't mind and I love every minute of it. Sometimes she just wants me to hold her during the day, she will say "hold you mommy!"  Or she reaches up and says "aw baby" bc she knows that's what I say when I pick her up.
🌸she can repeat after everything I say!  My favorite thing that she says is "I love you...or if I say it first she says "I love you too". So sweet.
🌸she loves baby dolls and stuffed animals.
🌸emily loves books! She will pick one up, climb in her little chair and blabber off made up words like she's reading. Her voice will go up and down and every now and then we will understand a word that's actually in the book.
🌸emily is now very mobile and everywhere we go she wants to take off!! Thank goodness for a stroller. And my new carrier.
🌸emily loves Frozen. If she sees anything with the characters on it, she will sing "let it go!" It sounds more like "et gooooo!!" Very high pitched.
🌸she loves the Taulor swift song "shake it off".  No matter how upset she may be, that always cheers her up.
🌸she loves her sister snd calls her "Kiki". She wants to do everything "Kiki" does!
🌸she loves putting on shoes. Anyone's shoes. She likes to take hers on and off. And she likes putting her socks on her hands.
🌸emily loves church! She gets excited to go to bible class!
🌸she looooves going outside and usually cries when we have to come back in.
🌸she gets so excited and claps when I understand what she's trying to tell me.
🌸she sings all the time! Twinkle twinkle, wheels on the bus and row your boat are all fun to sing. And of course she sings "let it go"
🌸she can sleep thru the night but it doesn't happen too often. She has to sleep with her white bear.
🌸she likes to have a bow in her hair. She asks for one and then claps. But she usually pulls it out within a couple hours.
🌸she's tiny! Only about 4 percentile in height and 13 percentile in weight. You wouldn't know she was such a good eater!
🌸poor girl...she falls and gets hurt a lot! Kinda a clumsy little thing!
🌸she's recently learned the fun of picking flowers!
I'm sure I could go on all night. She's such a joy and so much fun!

I would post a picture but my phone isn't letting me now so I will next time I blog...

Now my big girl... Kaitlyn

This girl absolutely amazes me. She is such a good big sister and has the kindest heart. I can't believe she will be 6 years old in two months! She is in prek but can pick up a book and read already. She's currently in tap dance and soccer. She loves babies and stuffed animals and dolls. I love her fun imagination and watching her grow. She can count past 100, say the New Testament of the Bible and can remember things from when she was 2 years old. She remembers things I don't remember sometimes!  She loves animals and says she wants to someday have a job where she saves animals from the side of the road. She is always dressing up fancy and loves having tea parties! She loves writing stories.

Ok I suppose that's enough braggin about the Bryan's :). Until next time ...
