Is it really only 11:00?

It feels so late to me...I think b/c Emma had such a hard time falling asleep tonight. She already went to bed a couple of times and ended up getting back up, but now I think she is finally down for the night. I was ready to go to bed around 8:30 actually.

She took a step or two tonight!!! She has been pushing her little chair around the living room all night (she does that all the time) and I put her down about two feet from it, she stood there for a minute and took a step toward it so I scooted it back a little and she took another step, but then she went down on her hiney!! She didn't do any more than that, though!! It won't be long I'm sure until she is walking!

I ordered her a couple of birthday presents tonight, too. It's still a couple months until her birthday, but I found something I really wanted to get her and it was on sale/clearance so I was afraid if I didn't order it now then it would no longer be offered later. 

We had a busy morning today - we ran err…

It finally happened...

This morning as soon as Michael got up he went to check on Emma. Normally, he doesn't go in there until he is ready to leave for the day...but not this morning - thankfully! After about thirty seconds he came back in our bedroom & said, "Hey, can you come in here and help me?" Emma had managed to take off her dirty diaper during the night or sometime this morning - either way it was all over the place. When I walked into her bedroom he met me at the door with a naked baby!!! I just took her to the kitchen and sat her in the sink (we have deep kitchen sinks) and bathed her there while Michael stripped the bed - bumper pads, comforter/blankets, sheets, her teddy bear, night shirt...everything got a little touch of it!!

Every parent I know has a story about the mess their child made with a dirty diaper...well, no we have ours, too!! Thanks for that memory Emma! Ha ha!

I'm still here...

just extremely busy with work and school! After an 8:00 AM meeting tomorrow at least there will be a little relief at work, though...and after Thursday night a big assignment will be done for the case we've been working on - soooo, that means this weekend I should be able to relax!!!! Yay!

It didn't help that I didn't get to go to work on Monday either, so that made today even that much busier b/c I had to play catch up getting ready for the meeting in the morning. Monday morning after I dropped Emma off at the baby sitter and tried to crank my jeep and go to work it wouldn't start. :( Turns out it was the battery, but we couldn't jump it - I called roadside assistance b/c I thought we were going to have to get it towed, but the wrecker driver was able to jump it. He connected the cables to something other than the battery itself - got it cranked so we could take it home, but then had to get a new battery. I was just glad it was really the battery - when we couldn&#…

Thank you!

My mother went in this morning to have a biopsy done on a spot in her lung - she's been pretty worried about it with all she went through last year. Daddy just called me this morning to let me know that they went in, but didn't find anything. The spot was just gone!!!! They said everything looks good and she is going to be fine!!

Thank you Lord for taking care of my mother!!!

The Bracelet of Bordeaux

I read in the news this morning that a film was shot here in the area where I live - it went straight to DVD & I think I might check it out! I don't know if it's be a top 10 for me, but I still think it will be interesting to see regardless! It's called The Bracelet of Bordeaux and the star of the show is a papillon named Rufus...well, if the star is a pup then I think it will definitely be worth watching!!

Sneaky! Sneaky!

Michael, Elaine, and a couple other friends have been going behind my back for a couple of months it seems planning a surprise 30th b'day party for me!! Saturday, the "dinner" I was supposed to be having at Elaine's house for my b'day turned into a birthday party - there was a house full of my family and friends waiting when we got there!!! I was very excited to see everyone!! It was so sweet! I think everyone was thrilled they pulled it off! Thank you all very much! I had a great time!

Goodbye 20's!!

I can't believe it...I'm 30 years old today! Wow!!! Does this mean I have to act all grown up now? Michael says I do that anyway...too serious!! ha ha!

I've been up since about 4:00 this morning. Not thinking about this (30 really doesn't bother me) - I just couldn't sleep. So I got up to finish working on some homework for class tonight. Yep, I gotta go to class on my b'day! That's alright we're going to celebrate this weekend. We're having dinner out on Friday and then going to Kenny & Elaine's Saturday night - Kenny is going to be cooking dinner!!!

Well, Michael just left and Miss Emma and I need to get dressed and head out now, too!!

Feeling better...just tired!

I think we're pretty much all better now...just laying around being a little tired. I had hoped that we would get to visit Miss Katelynn today, but Emma and I decided to stay home while Michael went over to his brother's house to watch football. Emma isn't contagious, but you know better safe than sorry. Katelynn's isn't even a month old yet. I would feel so bad if she got sick because of us! Maybe we'll get to see her next weekend.

I think Emma and I are going to rest up this morning. I may see if my parents want to come over after church. There is a new store in Old Towne Spring that I want to check out and I am sure mother wouldn't be opposed to checking it out either!!

We're watching Pretty Woman right now, but I think Emma is getting ready to take her morning nap and I need to put up laundry, too. I'm kinda hungry, too. I haven't really eaten anything since lunch on Friday b/c I have been so I think I'll find me some brunch!!!

Learning to share...

ugh...Emma had a little tummy problems and she was so nice and shared them with her mommy. I was sick all evening yesterday and through the night and still feel a little queasy this morning. She's all better now running around playing and I'm the one laying around on the couch now. I hope by this afternoon it will be all over with...

My Darling

I just love this picture..., err Tuesday morning!

After five days off it is hard to come back and get on schedule this morning. I have staff meetings every Tuesday morning and I had to remind myself that was today& not tomorrow!! I'll be good after the coffee gets down, though!

We did have a great Labor Day weekend, though. We went up to East Texas for the annual Stanley Cup (clay shoot at my sister's) - Michael shot this year with our neighbor. I took the pictures again and will hopefully have them all posted tomorrow. I've decided that next year I am going to shoot. I can still take pictures, but just won't be able to shoot all the different teams shooting. We'll just have to make sure to snap pictures of each team once they return to the deck! Michael and his partner both won $50 gift certificates this year. There were several more teams shooting this year than before, too.

It was also fun to see family and all the kiddoes! Emma had a blast! It's always fun to get away for a few days - I just hate having …
