...Emmy started rollin'! I was making dinner and Emmaline was laying on the kitchen floor on her back watching the ceiling fan. I was doing something at the stove and when I turned around she was on her stomach. I was so surprised that I flipped her over just to see if she could do it again, which she did. What a strong girl!

We've had a bird's nest in a porch light since last winter. We decided yesterday that we should take it out so it wouldn't start a fire. Wouldn't you know that when Nathan took it down there were 4 teeny-tiny eggs in it?! The kids were excited to see them and it looks like we'll be without a porch light until the eggs hatch.

On Monday, Emmaline turned 3 months old. It is hard to believe how fast the time has gone and how much she has changed. When she was born, I wasn't sure how I'd handle being the mom of a special needs baby, but now I honestly can't imagine anything else. Sure, we have more dr.'s appts. than most, but other than that Emmy is just like any other baby. She is such a sweetheart who loves to laugh and cuddle. I'm so glad God picked me to be her mommy!

Nathan and our neighbor, Clay, really enjoy weight-lifting. They stand at the fence in the backyard and talk a lot about lifting weights, buying weights, making weights...you get the picture. Their new thing is to figure out how to make their own weight-lifting equipment for cheap. Clay got a mold and make his own concrete ball that weighs 175 lbs. Nathan was really proud of himself when he was able to lift it (although his shoulders and elbows are still recovering!).

Well, I am officially 30! Can't say that it feels much different than 29 though. Nathan took the kids and I to see Shrek 3 (hilarious!) and then Mom brought over banana split cake for dessert after dinner. It was a fun day!
Make a wish!
Jacob shows off his muscles!

Here are the flowers again and a trivet that I had made to give to my Mom, Nathan's mom, and his grandmother. It turned out so cute that I had to give myself one too!
