The Itsy Bitsy Spider

The itsy bitsy spider crawled up the water spout
Down came the rain and washed the spider out
Out came the sun and dried up all the rain
And the itsy bitsy spider crawled up the spout again

15 months.

Oh my, I have a 15 month old!  My little baby is not such a baby anymore!  Here is what we have been up to since the last month:

  • Trip to Indiana for Elyse's birthday, got to visit with our friends Meredith and Finn again.  Finn is so cute and such a hugger!  Elyse is getting so big, and has bypassed Emmy in height....almost there in weight.  Emmy and I flew out there with my parents, she did a good job!
  • Pink eye and a few trips to the doctor.
  • Emmy is now the proud owner of squeaky shoes and she really thinks she is hot stuff in her shoes!  She was starting to walk on her toes and these have cured that bad habit.  She is VERY close to running now.
  • Up until this point, Miss E didn't care much about the boob tube unless it was "The Office".....but we found a show she cannot live without now....The Backyardigans.  My niece Grace also watched this show 7 years ago and it bring back such good memories.
  • We bought Emmy a little Backyardigans couch, it's one of the collage pictures.
  • In all the trips to the doctor, we found out that Emmy really hasn't gained even a pound since her 12 month appointment.  She eats, she's just moving so much more.  She is definitely thinning out, so she must be growing in height.
  • Not too many new words, but Emmy is trying to imitate the things we say.
  • We have rediscovered "The Itsy Bitsy Spider" and her favorite part is "washed the spider out".
  • For Halloween, Emmy was "Pebbles"- the only thing missing was the orange hair.  She was too cute.  We didn't do much trick-or-treating.....maybe next year.
  • Emmy has a little "primal" yell...I'll have to scour the phone and video camera to see if I have it captured.  I'm afraid that if she continues, she'll hurt her vocal chords.
  • If possible, this month has been more fun than the last is so fun watching Emmy grow into her own little person, with her own little idiosyncrasies.

Anniversary #4

Happy Anniversary to us! Here we are celebrating year number four @ Tucci's (our traditional anniversary dinner spot).

Since it's year #4, I'm going to make a short list of 4 things that I love about my hubby.

  1. Chris is very adaptable to change.  This comes in handy many times in marriage, whether it be big changes or just small day to day things.
  2. I've never dated, been friends with, etc ANYONE with a stronger work ethic than my husband.
  3. He puts me in my place when I need it.  This one may sound a little harsh, but I don't mean for it to come across that way.  He stands his ground, I don't always win.  At the moment I dislike that feeling, but in the end I am glad for this.
  4. I think he might love our daughter even more than me.  He is tender and gentle when needed.  He rough houses and can get her to belly laugh.  He has her attention before he even walks in the door.  When she hears the garage door closing, she knows that daddy is home.
There are many more things, next year I'll come up with 5 new ones (well, I might have to reuse some if I'm tired that day!)

Month 15 for Emmy is coming to a close.  We have done lots in the last month, so I might need to make 2 collages.
