Take Me Out to the Ballgame

This spring Stephen has been enjoying playing baseball, except when the ball is pitched "really fast". Greg & I are lucky enough to be the parent coaches for his team. Greg is a great coach - pushing the kids to do their best and learn about the sport and still have fun. So far, no one has been able to beat Greg running the length of the field, but they are getting close. I do all the administrative work - phone calls, pass out schedules, assign treats, etc. Stephen tries to pay attention to the game while outfield but most kids have a hard time too. They'd rather be up to bat. Emma likes to scoot along the dugout holding on to the chainlink fence. She is also our little cheerleader. This is definetly a family effort. Go Stephen!!!

The Day After

Emma's party was such an over stimulating event, I couldn't wake her up the next morning. She kept rolling over and falling back to sleep with each attemp. "Just 5 more minutes, mom." After her 1 year check-up, she got the OK to sit in the "big girl" seat. She is so excited!

The Big 1

It's hard to believe that our baby has turned the big 1 year old!! Emma had a good time eating cake, opening presents (big brother helped!), and "looking" for Easter eggs all on the same day! She is scooting along anything that will hold her up and once in a while will get brave and lunge for mom in an attempt at walking. She'll get there and then we'll be in big trouble!
