This week I am taking a break from "Monday Musings" and "Wordless Wednesdays".

I have been so busy, that I just haven't had the time.  I have some things (good things) going on in my life right now that have kept me distracted.  But I'm here to share the latest!

In Emma news:

Yesterday we had to run errands and Emma dressed herself.  She does this often and whether it works or not is hit or miss.  Yesterday it was borderline "hit", so I let her wear what she had chosen (which was a shirt that had a pink sea horse on it and jeans that had all these hot pink patches with flowers).  She completed her ensemble with a purple sparkly jeweled necklace, a strawberry shortcake bracelet, and her sparkly princess shoes (similar to the ones below).  

We hadn't been in the car for 5 minutes when Emma let out a big sigh and said, "Its hard being a princess!".

That about sums it up folks.

Here she is after a princess birthday party she went to last week:


In Brody news:

We have a crawler people!

This milestone has made my life crazy!  But Brody is the cutest crawler I have ever seen!  Think bear cub meets sumo wrestler.  Classic. 

This is one of the only ways I can contain him (Mark actually came up with this idea):

Doesn't he look thrilled?:
Brody is 10 months old this month and I can hardly believe it!  He is the sweetest little boy and is really into cuddling with his mama right now.  I am savoring every moment!

Being a princess is tough, isn't it?

I can't believe he's crawling already. That just makes me realize how close we are to crawling...if I never put her down, she can't crawl, right?

(Looking at SITS gals blogs and came across yours - hi there!)

These are the cutest pictures I've seen all morning! (And I've been looking at a lot of cute so far.)

My sister was a crawler too. There was about a 1ft gap between the bottom of our couch and the wall and she'd always crawl behind it and peek out and say "Boo!" - until she started getting stuck :)

Lovely blog! I can't wait to

Brody is getting so big, can't wait to see him and watch him crawl. He has more teeth also, such a cutie. Emma is a beautiful princess, she looked so pretty dressed up and with all the make up. Great job Emma.
