Best Buds





So the past few years we've randomly taken Caroline and Emmy to get thier picture taken together because let's face it, I'll take any excuse to go take pics. It's fun to watch them grow and they're so cute we just can't help ourselves. This time, Betsy and I tempted fate and actually crafted with 4 kids in the house. We made Valentine's shirts for everyone. I'm 100% sure they will fall apart when they're washed, but they look cute in the pics

Two three years old and two under 5 month olds makes for a unique picture taking experience =) We didn't manage to get a printable one of all 4, but who needs that. The outakes are MUCH better. In most of them Poor Caroline is trying her best to hold Easton who is pretty much making a plea for help. Beckett is trying to escape, and Emmy is doing her best "I AM freaking looking at you is this over yet" smile.













The sibling sets did a little better:
But the best ones had to be the Best Bud pics . Check out these handsome studs!

And these little ladies
I can't believe that it's already been 3 years since this one, which was taken for Valentine's as well. And a few glamor shots individually.





Happy Valentine's!!

First Haircut!

Emmy was a little slow to grow hair. She didn't really even have enough to do anything with until she was about 2. I decided that at 3 and a quarter years, it was finally time for a haircut! I was really kind of afraid that it would be an epic meltdown at the salon, but she did really well! The fact that Dora was on probably didn't hurt.

She even asked if she could have "straight hair like Mommy" (What she doesn't know won't hurt her). The lady tried to blow dry it straight but just like mine, it wouldn't really go all the way.

I don't really know who she looks like with straight hair, but certainly not like herself! I really prefer the curls. I'm hoping she doens't ever ask to make it straight again ;)

After five minutes outside on the way in to the library, the curls were back! Humidity is the bane of a curly headed girl's existence.

Beckett's 5 month pics

So B is a champ at taking pictures now =) I really wanted some picutres of his chunky monkey rolls. He's such a little stud =) Hats are going to become a wardrobe staple!















Emmys Big Sister Adventures

We've been trying to do some special things for Emmy since she's the Big sister now. I think we go and do so much all the time though that sometimes "treats" just seem like another day =)



She has been carting around her Belle doll since Santa brought it to her. Belle goes everywhere and does everything that Emmy does. We thought that she would LOVE Beauty and the Beast at the movies. She was sooooooo excited when we got to the movie theatre, like jumping up and down and squealing excited.

Turns out what she was REALLY excited about was the skittles. She spent the majority of the movie begging me for more skittles and then screaming "Where's Belle!!!!" everytime she wasn't on the screen. Oh well, maybe next princess movie!


We also took a quick trip on the "Train" (aka metrorail" to visit GiGi downtown for a lunch date. The ride downtown was pretty fun! The train was pretty free of crazies and Emmy has a great time seeing us slow down and speed up. Emmy is always looking for downtown when we drive and wants to know which one GiGi works in, so she was excited to finally get to see!
