Emmett is 5 months old!

Well shucks! The upload feature of the site is currently disabled. I took pictures of E yesterday and his front tooth. The second bottom one is coming through the gum now as well. I'll post pictures hopefully in the next couple of days.
The little guys and I are going to Jacksonville Saturday for about 10 days. Unfortunately Mark cannot go with us. We are soooo excited to see Granny, Grandpa, Beesha, Dziedze, Aunt Jen, and Uncle Joe.
Talk to you soon!

NC Trip to see Grandparents

We had a great trip but I must apologize to everyone for not taking enough pictures. We don't get to see members of the extended family as often so I bought a new card for the camera but then did not manage to take all the pictures I should have.
Cael and Emmett both did great on the airplane rides. Cael got buckled in then said '1, 2, 3, blast off.' He also kept saying 'rocket ship to space.' Too cute!

We love Aunt Jen!

and Beesha of course!

Emmett got to meet his great-grandma Hiatt.

I love my grandma, Norma Jean. She and my grandpa helped raise my brother and I when we were younger. I have so many fond memories of her and my grandpa. Unfortunately she's had a tough time with breast cancer, but seems to be on the upswing. I am thankful for my aunts, uncles, and cousins who are there to help take care of her.
What a snuggle bug!

Look! All 3 could be sisters! :) I was glad to see one of my favorite cousins, Krista. It is fun to think back to our cross country driving adventure and our time in Utah together.
Cael got to play with cousins, which is always fun. The thunder cat back there is my cousin Tarron, and then his two kids, Ava and Campbell.
Aunt Tama is so sweet. No wonder Emmett loved snuggling her.
So the above pictures are from my mom's side of the family, the Hiatt side.
I did not get a picture of Dave or Maria but I would like to thank them again for letting us stay the night at their home. We appreciate their hospitality!

We also were able to spend time with the Sawyers side of the family.
This is my Papper, Arville Emmett. He is one of the great-grandpa's we named Emmett after (the other is Mark's grandpa Morgan)
Cael would barely hold still long enough for a picture.
This is Nana. She is a ball of fire! I like to call her Flossy 'cause she is so silly. :)
Pappers has a since of humor. He had a stroke back before Mother's Day and eats through a feeding tube. While we were there I helped him with his feedings and insulin shots.
I don't know how we missed taking pictures with Mimi and Poppi, my dad (Bruce) and his wife Jaime. They were kind enough to let us crash at their place for a couple of days and cooked us two tasty dinners. Again, the camera was there but we were too busy playing with kids and visiting to take pictures I guess.
I am glad all 4 of us were able to go and spend so much time together. Cael was able to be Daddy's buddy again; Mark put him down for naps and for bed so that was a nice break for me. I am so grateful for my little family!
Oh! And we were able to visit my childhood friend Saura and her family. That was really nice. Saura made us dinner and we got to visit as the kids played. Emmett was fussier than normal that night as his first tooth pushed through the gum! - Thank you Saura and Kevin for having us! I took my camera to take a picture and then I forgot to take a picture until we were on the highway back to the apartment.

More family photos...

Wild man Cael Morgan! He loves his cars and his spiky hair!

I was disappointed in Emmett's pictures. I have taken ones with him smiling that turned out better than this.

I thought the family pictures turned out great!

What a lovely couple! :)
The ones of the boys didn't turn out too good either. Cael was being wild and Emmett would not keep his hands out of his mouth. Aah! little boys!
