It's about time!

I am just now posting everything that has happened the last month! Sorry it has taken me so long. Things have been crazy as usual, we still haven't heard if we got the house we put an offer on 6 weeks ago. Frustrating, but it will come sometime. It has been a rough couple of weeks......we are expecting again. Surprise! It was a big surprise for us but we are excited. We have already heard a heartbeat and everything looks good, which is very relieving. The morning sickness is also a sign that everything is great. Ryan and the girls have been very helpful around the house, since I don't do much but go from couch to bathroom. We are looking forward to the next few months of family visits and vacations (and hopefully moving). Yeah for summer!!!!

Daddy Daughter Date


Ryan took Emma to see Aliens vs. Monsters on Saturday. She was so excited, and they had a great time! I can't believe she is going to be four next week. So cute!

The girls

These are the outfits Ryan brought home from China for the girls. So cute!


Emma


A couple of weeks ago we went to a freinds house to play games. While us "responsible" adults were upstairs the kids were downstairs playing. There were 6 little girls downstairs between all of us. Well after we returned home from a great game night, one of the mommies called us. While putting her 3 year old to bed she had spilled the beans. They girls had gotten a hold of scissors and had cut each others hair! Emma swore up and down that her little friend Evie had cut all of their hair, that it was all Evie's idea and Emma didn't do anything (yeah right). A couple of days later at dinner Emma blurted out that she had cut Addison's hair (which was the worst of all of them, she had to have 8 inches cut off to even it out). We figured Emma thought she was safe because she had gotten in trouble a few days ago so she was out of the clear. Well, not so fast. The damage was pretty bad between the 4 of them. They had cut braids off, bangs, you name it they cut it. then they hid all of the hair and scissors in drawers. Funny kids! Here was Emma's hair the next day. (On the first pic: If you look at the left side of her head you can see the short pieces of hair that was cut)



Total hair lost: 3 inches from the bottom, and we left the short stuff!



China






Ryan returned safe and sound from China the end of April. He had a lot of fun and learned a lot of valuable things for work. They mainly went to factories and vendor shows. Any of the "tourist" pictures are from the car. I think his favorite part of China was the massages. Two hours long for $13! Ryan also brought back some great presents for us all, inclluding reall pearl necklaces, earrings, and bracelet set for $2, and some outfits for the girls. I think the hardest part of the trip was the jet lag. They are 14 hours ahead of us, so coming home was really hard. I think he has adjusted back completely just this week. He has yet to show me all of his pictures because they are on his work computer so here are just a few!

Sofie Anne


My little baby is growing up so fast! Sofie is so stinkin cute and we sure do love her. She is crawling everywhere. For the first month and a half she army crawled but now she is on all fours just a cruisin'. She is pulling herself up and standing everywhere. It's crazy how big she grew overnight it seems. She is quite the mommy's girl and I love it! Sofie learned how to clap today and it is so cute. Here she is:
