Enjoying the weather....

Today was such a beautiful day...we decided to enjoy it before heading to dance class. Emma loves being outside. McCool loved it for a while and then wanted his mommy to hold him. (think he was tired) I can't wait for SPRING....and today McCool is 8months old...it is flying by...makes me soo sad...things McCool is doing at 8 months: he slept on his stomach for the first time last night, loves to KISS, loves his sister, Mickey Mouse and Bob the Builder, Filmore, his pacifier-we make several paci runs at night, sits up very well-when he falls, yes-i panic, everything goes to the mouth, smiles non-stop, rolling over some, and just in general a sweetheart...here are a few pics of us enjoying this nice day!!!!

Colin's birthday party....

Today, we went to Colin's 4th birthday party. Everyone was to dress up. Emma loved that. And she went as Tinkerbell. They had a magician for entertainment...too cute..
Colin-spiderman and Emma....(didn't realize how big the bow was)

Entertainment....

Emma and McCool have learned to entertain each other. It has been way too cold to go outside. So, when they are tired of playing with toys, this is what happens. Emma puts some sort of toy on his head. When the toy falls off, they both laugh uncontrollably. It really is funny. The other night, all 4 of us were laughing sooo hard. imagine that...
placing the object on the head....
they both love it....

New Year's DAy and visit with the Silmons...

Happy New Year's!!!!! The Silmons arrived on New Year's Day.....Rich and Jeff graduated from LSU ortho school together and we have been wonderful friends since then. Our children have never met. They have 2: JAckson (3) and Mary Francis (14 months) Emma and Jackson hit it off well. They loved each other at times and then would fight because they really don't understand sharing!!!! Will they ever? WE had an amazing visit. Lots of eating out, laughing, and of course ROCKBAND...Jeff and Meredith had never played, but they LOVED it.
2008 was a GREAT year....I quit nursing in March and became a stay at home mom, after working for 7 yrs as an RN. WE moved to a new house in April, while i was 30 weeks pregnant. WE had McCool in May, our sweet precious boy. Also, had a scary incident in June when McCool chocked and we had to call 911. Thankful that God was watching over and protecting my sweet family. McCool was diagnosed with reflux and put on Prevacid. He is doing much better now. He is finally sleeping in his bed (with NO carseat), only taking Prevacid once a day, and is loving his baby food. We are soo blessed that he is doing soo well. My baby girl turned 4. What a sweetheart she is. Took her to Disney World for the first time and had a great experience besides strep throat. Had a wonderful 2008 and looking forward to 2009!!!!!
