Henry @ 7 months...

We were a little late, but here are his deets....

19.5 lbs (into the 12-18month clothes, since the 6-12, and 9-12 are all a little too tight).
30 1/2 inches long

Still wakes up at least 2 times a night, which is killing me. Last night was a miracle, and he only got up once between 9:00 and 6:00. Let's hope its the start of a trend.

Emma is FIVE!


Emma turned five on Thursday. We had a fairly low-key day with her. While I was gone at work, she got to go out to breakfast with Shane. By the time I got home, she had a fairly bad cold, and so she didn't get to go to school. We played and napped in the afternoon, then at night, we put Henry to bed and watched "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory". That was our first chapter read-a-loud book this summer, and she's been dying to watch it.

Then we had a family party on Saturday night, a la "Charlie & the Chocolate Factory" as well. We tried to fill Emma's room with balloons as the "bubble room". We had a candy cake, a chocolate fountain with yummy food for dipping, and lots of fun visiting. It was fun to have lots of family squished in our little house. :)

Best Friends

H & E

I Love that these two get along so well. While the 4 1/2 year age gap wasn't planned, it sure worked out well for our family. Emma is such a good big sister, and can make Henry laugh on demand. She's so good at entertaining him and keeping him happy--especially when I'm trying to get dinner finished. She loves to take care of him and has been wanting to pick him up all by herself lately. She's getting better, but we only let her try once in a while.

And Henry, ADORES his big sister. Sometimes when I get him up from nap, he won't even make eye contact with me. He is immediately looking around the room for Emma, and won't stop until we find her. I think its sweet. And there's nothing better than those big belly laughs he makes when she's making him laugh.

Best Park Ever

Cheeky Boy

We found Pine Like Park a few weeks ago. It's up by Emma's new school, and it is the most amazing park ever. It is nestled in the trees, on the banks of Pine Lake. The dock and water area are beautiful! Its got a couple of play areas, swings and lots of fields. There's not many places better than this to be at Sunset. I highly recommend this park. :)
