Finally, pictures!


She just turned 5 months old on Nov. 17th. I absolutely can't believe that much time has already passed since she was born! She's starting to be so much fun! She babbles and blows bubbles non-stop. She has also discovered that she can scream really loudly and does it all the time. I swear it's so high-pitched, only Casey can hear it. She has a quick smile and is generally a pretty chilled baby. It took her a while to get this way though! She loved to hear herself cry for the first several months of her life. I think she has realized that being laid back is much better than being high-maintenance. At least, that's what I'm telling myself! She's sleeping until about 5am almost every night now. That makes a much happier mommy! She absolutely adores her big brother and cracks up at him every day. Which brings me to......


He turned 2 on June 9th. He definitely has his very own personality and LOTS of it! He talks up a storm--in fact, most days he never stops talking. He went straight from incoherent babble to full conversations it seems. He loves, loves, loves Diego and Dora and would watch them all day long if I let him. I have to say though that he has actually learned quite a bit of Spanish from them. He can count to 10 and knows the basic "Como esta? Bien". It's actually pretty impressive! He also loves his baby sister and his dog, Casey. He gives out kisses and hugs freely and will talk to anyone! He loves to run and jump and climb (in true little boy fashion). He had a recent head injury (see photo above) when he was standing on the Lazyboy and took a nosedive into the coffee table. He also loves to draw and is blossoming into quite a little musician. Piano and drums are his favorite instruments, with the guitar not far behind.

These two make my life crazy busy and I wouldn't have it any other way!

Change, Hope

I know, I know--I only have 2 blog followers and both of them are already fully aware of my political views. But, just in case some random undecided voter stumbles upon this blog and thinks it's a good idea to follow the advice of someone they don't know---VOTE OBAMA TODAY!! I firmly believe in the ideals of this candidate and have faith he will take this country in the direction it needs to go. But he can't do it if we don't elect him today! VOTE!

Bored at work

Ok, today my co-worker and I have no patients and suddenly thought blogging would be a great idea. So here I am creating a blog--something I said I would never do. (Although, I said that about facebook too and now I'm an addict)
A little background:
I'm a pediatric nurse at a small hospital in Avon, IN. I'm married to an amazing man (Bobby) and we have two children--Trey (2) and Emerson (4 months). My husband teaches at a large high school in Indianapolis. Hopefully, this will be a good way for everyone to keep up on our lives (those who care about it anyway). Since I'm at work and have no access to pictures, you'll have to stay tuned for photos.

PS. This could very well be my one and only post. We'll see how long it lasts.
