Welcome to our blog!

The newest member of our family just entered the world, so we thought we'd start this blog to show her and our other two boys off.

Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I have been very busy. I am trying to potty train Bryson and I am having an impossible time. I am flying through laundry soap because I will tell him to go potty and he'll insist that he doesn't have to go and then not two minutes later, he'll come out with new clothes on because he has wet his pants. At least it's not number 2 anymore, I guess. FRUSTRATING! Anyway...Emerie is just as beautiful as ever. Everytime I go in to get her up in the morning or from one of her naps, she greets me with a huge smile full of sunshine. She now has two bottom teeth and she's starting to roll over from her back. She's been rolling from her stomach to her back for a few months now. She's also trying to sit up. Kids, they're always in a hurry to grow up!

I have been tagged by my sister-in-law, Crystal! So here is some info about me.

The rules of the game:
• Link to the person that tagged you and post the rules on your blog.
• Share 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself on your blog, as we all want to know them.
• Tag 7 random people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs.
• Let each person know that they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I am supersticious and I hate chain letters. You never know. I don't need any more bad luck!

2. My favorite place to be is the ocean because I feel like anything could be on the other side and that is thrilling to me.

3. There's nothing better than cuddling up on the couch with a good book or movie on a rainy or snowy day.

4. I am actually a writer and I have started about a hundred stories that I have left abandoned around my house because I haven't found the inspiration I need to write my novel yet. (VERY FRUSTRATING!!!)

5. I want to own my own country inn.

6. I don't want to be rich. I just want a nice home that belongs to me, two reliable vehicles, some money aside for the kids' college, and maybe a vacation once a year. That's my dream.

7. Funny fact...From age 2 until about 16 I wanted to be a singer. I used to make all my cousins sit and listen to me. Then one day I realized that I lacked talent and that's sort of important! :)

Now I need to figure out how to tag several other people. :p

Someone likes my singing!

I sang Jingle Bells, and this was her reaction. I like to think she enjoyed my singing and wasn't laughing at me. :)

Happy Tubby Time!

I have been nervous to give Emerie a regular bath so I have been just "sponging" her off. Well I started bathing her in the sink and she became the happiest clam! She loves tubby time and she screamed at me when I started getting her dressed after I dried her off. HAHA. C.J. and Bryson both hated baths. It's a nice change. Oh...Her cold also seems to be improving finally. She's not coughing near as much and her eyes have stopped weeping. Yay!

Comfort Zone

Well, Emerie is now 8lb 9oz. This is due to the fact that all she does is eat and sleep! :) Bryson is doing excellent as far as the baby is concerned, however, he can't seem to stop getting into everything and I feel exhausted. He's just curious but my lack of energy is making it hard for me to remember that. :( It turned out that the cold we thought Bryson had was actually an ear infection. We had no idea because he never pulled at his ear or said anything about it until the morning we took him to the doctor. He has done the 10 day antibiotics and he seems better but I'll feel better about it after his next check up. Christmas is almost here!
