"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Should NOT be blogging

Why oh why am I sitting here updating when I should be doing dishes, tackling the laundry, working out, cleaning bathrooms, addressing announcements and writing thank yous? Ugh...well, I guess because I would rather do this than that!
There is SO much fun stuff going on around here, and I want to share. But time is getting crunched nowadays! So, hope the pictures do justice for the fun we are having!!
Best daddy ever! Emery is pretty dark and I can't seem to get her pretty features to show up without making daddy and I look more pale than we already are!
Little pumpkin is getting chunky! She's got a double chin and is now wearing newborn diapers! Yay Emme!!!

Keeping the bigs occupied while trying to keep Emery out of the heat. What FUN!

They were coming after ME!

Trying to wake Emery! Poor thing has her days and nights off. Well, I think its not too bad for her, but this mama needs to sleep between 1-4 if at all possible ;)

Our first pics of all 6 of us!!! Taken by the timer before church! I cannot believe they all looked at the camera! YAY!
So super sweet! Not the best camera angle, but hey, pretty good for the timer and me running after pushing the button! Good thing it didn't get my hiney!

Our family of 6 spent the weekend with my family for my birthday!!! We had so much fun celebrating the July birthdays and showing Emery off to the family!

What? Could you ever imagine my sweet angel making this face? Yep, she does it...and she does it well. This was at her Aunt Becki when she asked the kids to sit while eating their ice cream! Hilarious...you little booger.

I love capturing these sweet moments shared between siblings.

Guess who can "swim" now! I say that because she can't swim without a life jacket, but she can now keep her head up and float by herself! Yay sissy!

I love how quickly babies learn voices and noises. Sister already turns to me and follows me. Man, I love this mommy life!
