Blessing Day

Today we were able to bless Emma.

I just love when babies are blessed!! It was especially great because we were able to have some of our fmaily there. Matt and his family came from Sacremento and so did Brya and the kids. We also had my Aunt Cherie and Uncle Don and Loren from my family. Brad parents, Jess and Jake and Traci , and Matt and Angie were also there. Alot of Brad's Aunts and Uncles were here from out of town also. I wish there could have been more from my family but it was great to have the ones that were able to come!!!

Photo Shoot

Emma had her first photo shoot today for my friend Corrine's Etsty Store. She did really good until the end. Corrine got lots of smiles, of coarse they weren't there when we brought out my camera. Corrine made the tutu, braclet, headband, and flower. She does a great job, they are so cute!!

Dance Class

Well yesterday was the big day!! Madison had her first day of Dance!!Of coarse she had to pose with her little sister!
Then as she walked into the classroom she did her "Madison" pose...hands on the hips!!
They had tap first and that was a little crazy!!

They actually have decided to split the class up since there 14 kids in the class. They are 3-5 years old, which you can tell when you watch the class.
Then they did the ballet class. It was SO cute!!
Madison showing off her skills!
Makayla, Madison, and Lynnie
(Her best Friends, that's what she informed me the other day. Where she got that I have NO idea)
They had to jump over the pooh bear, which is a little difficult when it goes to your knees. She went around it first, then over it.
I think the class was a success!! She loved it and She actually did really well listening!!
(Sorry about all the pictures and the play by play.....but what can I say I'm a proud mom!!!)

How Birthday Expectations Change

So yesterday was my birthday and I was thinking about how things have changed from birthdays when I was younger to now that I'm 26. My Mom even pointed it out to me. When I was little I couldn't wait to get up and open my presents. Of coarse that never happened because I had to wait for my Dad to get home from work, but all day I was waiting sometimes I thought it would kill me to wait. Then there's now where Brad got up made me breakfast bathed both girls and got them ready for church, and we were still on time!! The day could have ended there and I would have been content!! Just him getting the girls ready was SO nice. That's when the LITTLE things mean the most!!! Don't get me wrong, the rest of the day was great with lots of birthday songs from family and gifts to open, But I just loved the morning ritual being done someone besides me!!

This our little "Dancing Girl" in her ballet shoes.
(that's what she calls herself when she's in her dancing clothes) Madison in her tap shoes
(Brad showed her how to pose for both pictures, it was rather funny!!)

So, today was a good day and sad day for me!! I signed Madison up for DANCE!! Which part of me is SO excited and the other part is So SaD!! I remember when I thought, I can't wait to put Madison is dance, it will be so fun. But that's forever away!! Well now its here and I still think it's going to be so fun BUT forever is here!!! She will be three in less then a month!! THAT is so sad to me!! Dumb I know but she's growing up and so excited to dance, might I add!! Today we got her shoes, she's doing tap and ballet, leotard and tights. They were the smallest sizes and still a little big, but what do you do!! When she got up from her nap she wanted to dance, not only did she want to dance but she had to put on her dance lothes and become a dancing girl!! I jus can't believe she getting so big!! Alright there's my whining about my little girl growing up!! It won't happen again.... till her birthday!!

Tea Party

Brad's parents have a Mrs. Potts and Chip Tea Set and Madison just loves it. So I decided to get her a tea set from Emma when we brought Emma home. Needless to say she loves it. So today we decided to have a tea party!! So,the three of us sat down to have our "Tea."
Then we taught Madison the proper way to drink your tea, pinkie up!!
Of coarse Brad did it best!!
We had a TON of tea!!
I foresee many Tea Parties in our Future!!!!
(the pink hue is due to Madison's curtains, they make the whole room look pink when they are closed, it's lovely)

The Kiss

Yesterday Jenna saw Brya holding Emma and she decided that she wanted a closer look!! And then a KISS!! It was so cute!! She kept going up to her and kissing her. This was just to cute to pass posting!! Dayton's the one with the shoes!! Apparently he was walking (or should I say prancing)around forever in them.

Our girls

Here is Emma 6 days old!! And to think I was worried about not being to have another one as cute as Madison!!!
Don't let this sweet face fool you, I can already see the plotting going on between the girls!!
After her first bath at home
They didn't bathe together obviously, but once Madison was done with her bath she had to come watch Emma. When we layed her on the counter and Madison wanted to lay next to her. Needless to say she didn't quite fit!!

Emma in her little dress her Aunt Brya bought for her.
Madison Just LOVES her Emma!! She always has to make sure that everyone knows that she is HER sister!!!
