The Busy Month of May

We have been very busy this always. We're happy to finally have some nicer weather. Emily is obsessed with being outside. So we go out almost every evening to play for a little while before bath/bed time.

Em is saying more and more words each day...and learning lots of signs too. She signs please, more, eat, drink, milk. She's sooo smart! She says ball (all the time!!), Mama, Dada, Da (dog), arf arf arf (yep! what does a doggie say???), outside, this (when she wants something), can't think of what else.

I can't believe how fast she is growing. She seems to have such an attitude. She knows what she wants and if she doesn't get it she pitches a fit. It's starting to be a little difficult. She is still a very good sleeper and tells Mommy when she's ready for bed. I hope that lasts forever, but I have a feeling it won't.

Emily has a shoe obsession which you will see in the photos. She just loves to bring shoes to me for me to put on her feet. Then she'll wear them until bed time. Such a goofy girl.

Kory and I took a day and went ATVing - thanks to Aunt Kacey and Uncle Tony for babysitting. We went up to Black River Falls and had a really nice time. We just got back from Hayward for Memorial Day weekend. Always have a blast up there. Wish we could get there more often. Let's see..oh...we did the March of Dimes walk the first weekend in May. Had beautiful weather!!! Thanks to everyone who donated.

We're anxiously awaiting the arrival of Baby Zander - set to be here any day now - Emme says "Hurry up Aunt Kacey!!!". I'll post as soon as I hear something.

Here's the photo link for May (I even put captions on pics this time...yay me!):
