"You Lie"

Me: "Emerson, were you eating the paint while mommy changed Evan's diaper?"
E: "No."

Too bad Joe Wilson wasn't here to call her out.

In Case You Hadn't Heard...

No I am not pregnant.  We are a little nuts, but not that nuts. The real "in case you hadn't heard" news is....Garrett's baby sister Courtney/Aunt Coo Coo to my kids, is ENGAGED!!! We are so excited for her.

Coo Coo lives in Colorado so we only get to see her a few times a year. Lucky for us, she made a quick trip to Charleston last weekend for the Bridge Run. So, we made a detour thru the Holy City on the way to the Myrtle so we could congratulate her in person.  It made our hearts happy to see her.  Court, we love you so much and are thrilled for you and Chris!  Although, I will say I am a little sad that we will only share the same last name for a few more months.  Good for you though, Nicoletti is definitely a little spicier than Reed.
Court got to spend lots of time loving on baby Evan.  And regardless of how it looks in this pic, he enjoyed every second of it.

Emmy wanted to say congrats again to Aunt Coo Coo. Yay Coo Coo!!!!

40 Days

40 Days....that is how long it has been since I have touched this blog.  So sad. Honestly, things have just been busy. Between taking care of both of the kids by myself, working part-time, fun play dates with friends, and trips to the beach (rough life i know)...I really haven't even thought about blogging. Whoops. And without Garrett around, I seem to have lost my biggest source of inspiration. Have no fear though, we are headed to see him tomorrow. I'm feeling inspired just thinking about it.

Pretty much, I am really tired these days. Kind of like Emerson was after little Harrison's birthday party a few weeks ago.

My day starts at 6:15 (i have to get up before both kiddos to get ready) and ends around midnight. I constantly day dream about how amazing it would be if I could have a nap time every day.  Oh well, I can nap when my kids go to college. Until then, I'm going to enjoy every second of having these precious little faces wear me out. 
I have fallen so in love with this kid I can hardly stand it.
This little girl brings  light to the world. Yes she is wearing a leotard (and boots that are not pictured).
Hopefully I will be posting more this month. I feel like I am missing my opportunity to chronicle Evan's first year of life. It's so true, the second child gets the short end of the stick. I know because I am the second child.  What was my sisters first word??, "thank you," what way my first word??? no one knows. Evan I am vowing to minimize how many of your milestones we forget.  You deserve it....look how precious you are.
Yes, I nibble on his cheeks all day long.  All day. Every day.
