Emerick goes to Preschool!

I cannot believe my baby is headed to school! These past (nearly) 4 years have flown by, and I have loved watching Emerick blossom into the most amazing little boy I know. He has a heart of gold, and is so outgoing and just a fun little person to be around.

May all your dreams come true little man!

Louis ~ 11 months

One more month till he's 1! His personality is to die for, and I think that shows in this monthly snapshot. He just cut his first top tooth, and 3 more top teeth are also about to come through. He has been pretty fussy while teething and needs to wear a bib all day long again because of the slobber ;-)

Life can change so quick..

So much has changed for our family in the past 2 months, I wasn't sure if I would ever blog about it. I am not really sure that anyone even follows this blog anymore, and people that may read it probably already know about it.

At 4:30 in the morning on May 29th, 2012 we were lucky to awake just in time, literally. Only a few minutes more and we wouldn't have made it out. As I ran up the back stairs, a sleeping Emerick in my arms, the fire just to my left- I fell, for a moment I thought I was actually on fire! I ended up with a small burn on my left shoulder (basically like a bad sunburn with a small, dime size blister) The fire was SO hot and so loud. I don't remember hearing any smoke alarms, only the loud sound of the fire itself!

 The home where we were living, and everything we have ever owned was gone in a matter of minutes. It took nearly 50 fire fighters 1 hour to get the fire under control.  I think we have all been in a daze ever since it happened. It doesn't seem real. It is the kind of thing that isn't supposed to happen to us. But it did.

On a happier note ~ we are about to move into this house. The first house we will actually own. Finally homeowners :-)

Emerick Spidey!

Emerick is obsessed with wearing his Spiderman costume lately. Most days he likes to wear it whenever we go somewhere. Before we get out of the car, he puts the mask on and says "everybody is gonna say - "look! there's spiderman!"" and they do....and he loves it :-) here are some iPhone photos of Emerick Spidey in action!
