Who knew having kids could change everything? I started this blog to keep my family and friends up to date on all the adventures and mishaps of being a mom.

A spring of zoos

Emersyn has been going through the zoo each spring since she was born. Kind of just phoning in this blog post by doing lots of pics but.....  Here is a timeline of my cutie....

 And because she is 2 1/2, there was bound to be a tantrum this year.
 Since it is my blog, I am dedicating this to three years of zoo shots with my girl :-) 

 Notice the hat? I took off the flower and it is now Logan's hat. Springtime zoo trips are now on his schedule too :-)

My Funny Valentine

Emersyn has hit the "silly" stage. Everything is for a laugh. She makes up funny words. She adds "poop" and "boobie" to every conversation because they are funny, etc. She is constantly trying to get people to laugh and it usually works. Here are just a few of the recent silly moments:

 Thumbs up and a wink. She does this when she approves of what you are doing.

Daddy's beanie for morning cartoons is a must.

I can't wait to see if this little ham becomes the class clown. She is headed that way :-)

The past 2 months

I really haven't posted since my new man came home. Being a stay at home mom with 2 kids under 2 1/2 has left me busy every spare minute. However, it is one of those rare moments in the house where both kids are sleeping and before one/both wake up.... I am taking a moment to blog :)

So what has changed in our house since adding a second kid?

1) I never realized how much I was able to just sit with Emersyn. If I am not feeding, changing, playing with or putting down Logan, I am playing with Emersyn since she desperately needs attention. I never had "me" time anymore.

2) My house is SO dirty. I am lucky it anything gets done.... really!

3) I live for 3:45 when my husband gets home. Finally there is someone else there for me to talk to.

4) I almost never leave the house. My new wardrobe is workout pants and a tee shirt (my poor husband).

5) With Emersyn- if she cried I rushed to get her. I didn't want her to be upset. With Logan- I sit and tell him he is fine and let him cry it out while I finish what I am doing. Don't believe me... he has been crying since #2 on this list :-)

6) I am more happy than I ever imagine. Yes my life is hectic but then I get to look out of the bathroom while peeing since all moms know you pee with the door open and see this...

Side note- the camera was not in the bathroom with me. It was in the office where I could grab it before they saw me and the moment was ruined. :-)
