The Kids

Since I have been behind on my blogging, I thought I would do an updating entry about the kids.

First up, Emma: She is already 9 months! She continues to be a very easy baby; good eater, good sleeper, loves her big brother and sister. This week was a busy week for her. She had her 9 month well-baby check-up and also her cardiologist follow up appointment. Thankfully, she looked good for both appointments. The cardiologist said she still has the openings, (he didn't expect them to close in 3 months) and they haven't grown or anything. He told us to come back in a year, but even if she still has them, she will still have a "normal" heart and it will be considered normal and it won't be an issue in any way. We were thankful to hear that! I did take a quick picture of her getting the EKG. Poor baby:Charlie: 100% boy, enjoys "playing" all sports-especially basketball, golf, and baseball, enjoys shooting everything with his "gun" (the vacuum cleaner wand), and loves playing with his blocks and cars. He has a pretty good imagination and it is fun to watch him get excited about little things. His catch phrase right now is "last time" as in "Last time we go to the park". He says that all the time.
And last put not least, Macy: She continues to be super-talkative and super-friendly to everyone she meets! We visited a nursing home this afternoon and she did such a good job passing out the cookies and visiting with the older people. (Now her behavior at the end of dinner is a different story.) We are enrolling her in a dance class for the fall and she is of course super excited. Her highlights this week were getting a package from Grammy Kelsey and getting a bag of dress up clothes from someone at church. She was so excited! Here she is modeling as a "ballerina bride" (notice the unevenness in the bangs, someone got ahold of the scissors when I wasn't looking): I still can't believe we have 3 kids, and we are very thankful for all of them!

So it has been awhile..

Alright, I know Emma is now almost as old as Charlie is in the picture in the banner and I know it has been over a month since my last post, so I apologize my two blog readers. Some highlights over the past month include a trip up to Oklahoma City and Lawton to see my parents, visits from Seth's family and my brother and his family, so there has been a lot going on. However my camera lens is still busted, so I haven't been taking a bunch of pictures, hence the lack in blog posts.

But, I couldn't pass up posting a couple pictures (taken by me holding the lens up to the camera) of Emma in her dress today!
