busy busy bee

i know i have been neglecting the blog and many have mentioned the lack of posts lately. i have had a hard time finding time to blog. anyway, school is almost done and with that comes.....SUMMER! woot woot! i am excited to get to spend the summer with emerson and also do fun things with bradley and brad as well. its gonna be a busy last few days, and bittersweet as well, since i wont be returning to teach at the same school for next year. i have applied at so many schools but havent heard anything. i could be living in ny or maybe massachusetts, rhode island or even texas! we will see! of course, i might end up sitting on my tushie collecting unemployment if i cant find a job, but we will make it work.

anyway, to those of you have havent seen emerson lately, you are missing out big time! she is sooo funny! she still screams for fun and blows rasberries at you, but she makes her "mad" face all the time. i dont know if she is actually mad or not. she is picking up little puff baby food and getting it into her mouth.

she pulled herself up to standing on 6/16 when i was giving her a bath. she just pulled right up on the edge of the tub and grabbed a shampoo bottle and threw it on the ground. and so the destruction begins! i need to hire someone to come to my house and get rid of the junk and organize things.... MOM??? seriously, if you havent met my mom, she is possibly the most organized, neat, clean-obsessed person in the world. i, however, did not inherit that trait. that becomes obvious the moment you walk into my house. hello clutter city! it probably doesnt help that my house is only a measly 864 square feet. yeah....its tiny. without a basement. not sure how to even begin to de-clutter and organize this place to make it crawl-safe! hehe.

anyway, moving bed. well, i might sneak a few bites of my ben and jerry's first, but then off to bed. 3 more days of school left!! (and i think i am bringing emerson on wednesday!)

here ya go!

the past few weeks have been so crazy so i havent been able to find the time to post. and now probably isnt the best time since i am tired and its late and my brain is fried. but if nothing else, you get some new pics of the cutest baby in the world. hehe. she is doing well and has recently decided that 3 steps away from her is too far and she will cry. extreme seperation anxiety i guess. emerson is definitely extreme. hehe. she also says dada, nana, mama (though not often) and baba, which she just added yesterday. tonight she was talking to a horton the who stuffed animal (thanks robin!) and having a whole conversation and was actually mixing up the different sounded like she was having a gibberish conversation and she sounded mad and was yelling at horton. i'm not sure what horton did wrong but if he understood her, i'm sure he will never do it again. she just discovered today that she likes him. i think because he has an elephant trunk, which fits perfectly in emersons mouth to chomp on. also he has a fuzzy tail, which i think makes emerson think of the cats tails, which she sooooo loves to grab. i think by the time she learns not to rip out dante and ophelias fur, the cats wont have any left. also, horton has fuzzy eyebrows, which emerson likes to touch and occasionally licks (weird kid!)

anyway, here are some pics...first pic is of emerson on the new couches! yay! thanks mom and dad! i get to try out the sleeper part tomorrow night because brads son is coming tomorrow. i'll let you guys know how comfy it is!

see how happy she is that she has new couches??
going out for a walk in a cute outfit that aunt ashley bought her. the hat almost doesnt fit cuz emerson has such a big head!
emerson and daddy reading together...
her first biter biscuit. and possibly her last. it was MESSY! i am going to bed! one of these days i am going to start posting more (probably when school is out for the summer!)
