What's Emme up to now?

Well September has been a fun month so far. The weather has been georgous! I love this time of year in Wisconsin. Over labor day weekend, we went up to Hayward and spend a long weekend with my parents and Casey & Mike. It was fun. The boys got a lot of atv-ing in minus a few atv issues! ha ha I won't go into those :) The rest of us hung out, drank beer, shot guns...oops...did I say shot guns???

It was so much fun! The boys were teaching the girls how to shoot - for those of you concerned - Emme was napping and we were only shooting at a beer can and then a cardboard face that Mike made.

I am not so sure how to caption this picture, but I thought it was hysterical. It's a plastic flower holder...Emme decided it also made a nice hat :)

We also went on a boat ride for the last time of the season. Grammy even let Em drive! She loved it.

Since we got back from Hayward, we've just been busy around the house. Nothing too exciting. Emily is talking more and more. It's pretty amazing how every day she learns new words. We are working on saying 2 word sentences now. She hasn't quite got it down yet - other than "See Ya" - she says that all the time!!

Yesterday we went to Lake Geneva and met some friends at a park. It was really nice to see some of my High School friends and all their kiddos. It was a georgous day too! Emme had fun playing. When we got home yesterday, Em took a nap and then we were playing outside when she suddenly wasn't feeling well. She ended up throwing up out on the lawn. Poor little girl. In the middle of her puking session, the neighbors dog came over and ended up getting a shower of vomit!! Nasty! She threw up another 4 times last night - but woke up this morning seeming ok. She seems a little run down and more tired than usual, but other than that she seems fine. We've been taking it easy all day hoping she continues to feel well. One thing that was kind of funny out of all of this - was that she would take a drink of water out of a sippy cup and then about 15 - 20 min later she would throw up. So then she would make us go get her another cup. We went through about 5 cups last night. So this morning she woke up and was at it again....good thing we have a lot of sippys!!! She is too it's the cup that was making her sick!

Here is Emme at the park yesterday:

Here is Emme playing at the park with my friend Katie's son, Nolan. They are only 3 days apart in age:

Here are the two newest babies. Kyla is my friend Jen's daughter (the baby on the left), Morgan is my friend Allison's daughter (the baby on the right). Kyla is 5 months old and Morgan is 2 months old.

Here is Mason and Alina. Mason is Morgan's big brother and Alina is Kyla's big sister:

Here is the group hanging out. We had a blast! I hope we can do it again soon sometime.

Had to get a good belly shot of Katie. She is pregnant with twin girls!!! She's 23 weeks along. Can't wait to meet the two new little cuties! We brought her all of Em's baby clothes. Only 5 boxes of clothes -- and that's just up through 6 months!!

That's it so far. Been a good month. Looking forward to the next few weeks too. Gotta enjoy this weather before the snow comes!!!

Here is a video that I promised Auntie Kristen. It's Emme early one morning yelling for Otis. It's sooo cute!!!

Hope you are feeling better, Emily! Glad that you guys had a great day with your friends--super pictures. The video is sooooo cute!!! She is talking non-stop, what a sweetie she is.

Awww, poor Emily. I hope she is doing better now. It is no fun feeling like that as an adult, I can't imagine going through that as a little kid. Give her kisses from us! We LOVED the video of her yelling for Otis. Thanks for including that! Absolutely adorable! Can't wait to see you in November. Take care!
