I spoke to soon....

Just this past week, we were on vacation in Florida with my parents. During a discussion with my dad, I made the comment that I was very thankful that our kids had not stuck anything into their ears or noses that didn't belong there. I spoke to soon....

Today at lunch, Emma asked me for more juice. When I came back from the kitchen, Emma's finger was in her ear and she had a very panicked look on her face. We make eye contact and she says: "Mommy, there is something in my ear!" I hurry over to see the object above in the opening of her ear canal. Carefully, I pull Polly Pockets cell phone from my daughters ear!

From now on, I am going to keep my mouth shut! Leave it to Emma to see what will happen when you put a cell phone in your ear!!!

Tooth Fairy to Visit Spring Hill Lane

We are happy to announce that Ethan has lost his second tooth! Once again, it required a little assistance from Dad but the tooth is now out and waiting for the tooth fairy!
We are so proud of Ethan and we love his toothless grin. We can already see the other tooth and we are looking forward to seeing him with his "grown up" teeth!
Just another little milestone to share. They seem to be coming very quickly these days and we want to be sure that we savor every one!
We love you buddy man!!!!

Emma Kate

This is what Emma should have been doing around 9:30 last night....but of course she wasn't! Emma has a hard time going to bed a night. Our night usually involves one trip to the bathroom and then a threat to take her blankets if she doesn't stay in her room. As I said before, last night followed our usual routine. I was in bed watching TV and after the threat to take away her blankets this was the conversation that followed. Please note that she is in her bedroom with the door shut and I am across the hall in our room watching TV.
Emma: Mommy.....Mommy....Mommy....Momma...
Me: Emma go to sleep!
Emma: Mommy, do you know how to say black in Spanish?
Me: Emma, I said go to sleep!!!
Emma: It's negro, Mommy. That's how you say black in Spanish. Good Night Mommy!
How can you not laugh at that! Emma can be so random and I love that about her.
Thought I would pass this along in the hopes that it will bring a smile to your face as it did to mine!

Lost Tooth!!!

We are very pleased to announce, that with a little help from Dad, Ethan lost his first tooth tonight!!! It has been loose for quite some time now and Jon finally convinced him tonight that it would be best to pull it. For Ethan, he was brave. There were some tears and some screams but also alot of laughs!

He is very proud of himself to say the least! His tooth is safely tucked into his tooth fairy bear and sitting next to his pillow. He is excited about the tooth fairy coming but he is not quite sure how he feels about the fact that the tooth fairy is a girl!!!

We are so proud of our little man! He is growing up way too fast but it is fun to share these firsts with him! Emma, on the other hand, is not so happy. She went to bed tonight crying because she doesn't have a loose tooth!!! What a drama queen!

PS - I promise that we will share our cruise photos soon but this took precedent over that!!!
