The last 3 months

apparently I am not a very good blogger. I am great at checking others, but fail to update my own. Here is a look from October until now. Enjoy!

On our way home from Portland we stopped to see some sights.

We got a new puppy, Zoey!

We went to a pumpkin patch and let Emily pick a pumpkin!

Emily discovered her love to decorate with natural products.


Christmas was at the Walker house this year and we had a blast. We drove over late Thursday night. Matt went snowmobiling with his dad and brother early Friday and I had to take Emily to quick care. She had an eye infection in each eye, and an ear infection. Later that day, I started feeling very sick and I had the fever. I also started to get a cough. Christmas morning Emily started feeling a little better, and I broke my fever, but Matt got the fever.

Emily got a stoller, crib and swing for her baby from Santa.

A vacuum from Aunt Sarah

I have trained her well!

Just us kids

The Family


The crazy bunch!

Today, Emily is feeling fine, Matt has an eye infection and a cold, and I have bronchitis, a cold, and I possibly an ear infection. We are all headed to quick care tonight! Hoping for a happy and healthy 2011!

Emily turns 1!!!

I can't believe it has already been a year! I look at Emily and her baby face is gone! She is turning into a little toddler, and I am not sure I am okay with it. We love her personality, and I wish I could constantly snap pictures of her many smiles. She rarely goes without one on her face. She is a little jabber mouth and if it is quiet, she takes the opportunity to talk.....loudly! She says Mama, Daddy, Daw (dog), baby, tickle, dow (don't) nana, and now gampa...but those last two come and go in spurts. She will answer questions with a nod and say "yeah" or if she will shake her head for no. She has not learned to say "no" yet..which we are thankful for. She loves to swing and play on the slides, swim and go for rides in her wagon. She loves giving hugs and kisses. She hasn't decided she wants to walk yet, which again, we are thankful for. She is super busy and curious. We love our Emily!


Update: At her 12 month Dr. visit, her stats were: 17.63 lbs (5%), 28 in tall (20%), and her head is 17.75 in (50%)


So it has been a crazy busy summer. We had a couple family reunions, starting with Matts reunion in Missoula. Emily got to meet her Great Great Grandma!

5 generation picture. This is amazing!

The next week Emily and I went to the Rigby reunion in Estes Park Colorado. We got a 4 generation picture, but me being the dork I am forgot my battery charger, so they are on a different camera.
Emily and Great Grandma
We had a great time visiting both families and wish we could see them all more!
She is even stylin' while she sleeps!

Even though we have a hard time with our dog, it is times like this I couldn't imagine not having her! Emily adores her dog.
Emily has learned to push Sadie away and says "Dow" Meaning don't Apparently we say that to Sadie a lot! Emily uses the dog as a step stool, a pillow, a chair and a jungle gym and Sadie just loves the attention.

Last month we went to visit Matts family to spend time with them during their fair. We entered Emily into their Cutest Baby Contest just for fun. There were 150 babies and I was pretty sure she wasn't going to win. There were a TON of cute kids. They had everyone sit in rows and the judges walked around and then they called out the top 10. Surprisingly enough Emily's name was called. I was shocked and my sis-in-law told me to have more faith in her. She was so stinkin' cranky from only 3 hours of sleep and cutting a tooth that morning. We lined back up and the judges again walked through to pick the winner. Emily was the cutest! I am still shocked she won! She made out awesome! There were over $700 in prizes. The best one was this......
Of all the prizes she one, her favorite was her trophy! These pictures are priceless!
She was so wiped out, but would not let go of her new prize! Love it!

Been A While

We have had an exciting start to our summer. Emily just turned 10 months. At her 9 month appt. she was only 16 lbs, which doesn't give me much hope for the forward facing car seat. She is finally crawling on her knees, rather than her army crawl. She also is starting to stand on her own. I look at her and my baby is growing into a toddler WAY TOO FAST!! She is very active and probably the loudest baby I have ever heard. She says Mama, Dada, Yaya, blabla, and her newest is Nana. We our working on grandpa, or bapa, but it is a lot harder.

We in in the final stages of our family room remodel. The carpet is in, the molding is up, and now it is just curtains and a decorations (which I have all of it, but haven't had the time to get it up) Once it is all finished I will add pictures, but for now, you get our first time on the carpet!
Emily LOVES swimming. We have a pool in our back yard, and Emily has frequent visitors. We also took her to the public pool and she had a great time. She loved being dunked, crawling around, and playing in the fountains.
Matt played in Hoopfest in Spokane and their team had a great time. It was fun going up with
friends and hanging out for the day.

8 Months

I cannot believe how fast time goes! Emily is CRAZY busy and wears me out every day! She is pulling herself up to a stand on everything pushes her little table around the room and walks behind it. We have had a lot of falls and a few bruises, but she is getting the hang of it. Here are a few pictures I have recently taken. She has such a fun personality and her new love is eating her biscuits in her high chair, and then chillin after she is done. She cracks me up!

Also, We have been working on the house again and Carpet is scheduled to be installed in the Family room on the 20th! As is Matt doesn't have enough projects around the house, he tore out our front grass and we are reseeding it. We rented a sod cutter and got everything cut up, and since then it has rained or snowed almost every day so our yard is a mess right now, but hopefully it will be looking better soon!! I will be so glad when we have small projects, instead of huge undertakings!
