Just So You Know..........

Em is 6 months old!! Well she has been for around 3 weeks now, but since her mom tends to forget to blog, we're just barely informing you of her half birthday. She's now sitting up which is the cutest thing ever because she is just so little. She's also letting the whole world know that she yells and jibber-jabbers. She can make really obnoxious cat noises.....No, she doesn't say "meow". You know when you hear cats outside at night fighting or mating (I know, gross)??? Well those are the noises that come out of her mouth.
Em also loves to watch her big brother. She laughs out loud when Braddock runs crazy around the house or does naughty things which really makes me nervous to think that those types of things amuse her. I'm nervous for when the time comes that they are able to really start playing together. Oh well. I won't think about that today, I'll think about it tomorrow.
Anyway, Em is also scooting all over the place. She is my on-the-go child! Rarely does she cry unless she's super hungry or tired, but other than that I'm pretty sure the song "What a Wonderful World" is always going through her head.
She's our little ray of sunshine and we're sure lucky to have her!

So here I am again after a whole month of no posting. I'm sick of apologizing for it! I just need to get my bum back into gear and start blogging again. Like every month this past summer, MUCH has happened, so I'll just list off a few of the things we've been up to along with some random pics.
1. A Wedding (Jim's step-brother Adam's wedding to be precise). Here's a picture of our family. Braddock looks like he's going to hurt someone.

2. Braddock modeling my shoes. My sister Alyssa came over to watch the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics a couple of weeks ago and that's when Braddock came prancing out in my red shoes. It was a lot funnier in person, believe me! Okay, so maybe it wasn't THAT funny, but when it's your own child, everything they do is hilarious and cute, right?
3. Yeah, I don't know what happened here. Alyssa made me put the shoes on next and model. I also did this amazing dance move (an impersonation of Fran from "Strictly Ballroom"). If you haven't seen the movie, you need to. Disregard me from neck up. I went to the gym and hadn't showered yet.

4. The next five pictures were taken at the Utah County Fair! Woo Woo!

Braddock wanted out of his stroller.
So Jim held him and showed him around.
This is them on the army truck. I promise that Braddock was thrilled.
I so wish I did this picture in color. Oh well, too late.
Emma & Me.
That's my favorite necklace & hers too.

Test driving.
5. I found this really awesome website called

This is me in 1990. Glorious.

Me in 1958. Stunning.

I think you should all try this website out and post your favorite pic on your blog because I like to laugh.

Okay, so that's all the pictures I have for now. Here are some other random things that have been goin' on.

- Target shopping

-Working on my unfinished basement

-An awesome vacation to Midway, UT provided to us by Jim's awesome mom. So mad I forgot the camera!

-5 AM spin class

-Staying up til midnight to watch the olympics

-Cooking. I heart the Pioneer Woman.

-Girls night. Thank you, honey for taking Braddock to Scout Camp.

-Getting excited about Christmas. I know it's early.

- Braddock learning new words every day!

-Emma sitting up......better.

-Baptisms for the dead with the YM/YW

That's all I can think of for now!
