The beach in March

Two weekends ago, Martin's dad came down from Vermont to visit. We had such amazing weather that we drove down to Rehobeth beach for a few hours. I'm pretty terrible about taking pictures when we go places, but this time the reason I don't have many pictures is because the camera battery died!

The sky was an amazing shade of blue!

Emma was pretty pooped by this point:

Field Trip to Summit Aviation

Last Friday we went with a bunch of friends from church on a field trip to a local airfield that is run by the State Police. Emma enjoyed it and was able to take part a lot more than we had anticipated. She really liked watching the helicopters fly by and would point at them.

We got to go inside 2 planes also. She got a little freaked out here.

This is a smaller plane, which we went inside also

She enjoyed looking around in the small plane more than the picture shows!

And then her favorite (probably all the kids favorite too) was sitting in the cockpit of a helicopter!

And trying to fly it too!

We are so glad that it has warmed up early this year after such a cold winter, and are looking forward to spending a ton of time outside this summer!

Good Morning!

Emma, smile!

Why would I want to smile, Mommy? Its the middle of breakfast and I'm hungry!

See, I just want more to eat.

Ok, I guess I could give you a little smile.

Actually, this smiling bit isn't half bad.

Haha, its sooo much fun, Mommy!

Emma and Kellen

Earlier this week, Emma and I spent the day with Kellen, our friend's new little boy. He is so sweet and adorable, and Emma enjoyed being with him for the most part. She had a little bit of a hard time when he got his bottle; she really wanted it, and then she really wanted to sit in my lap too.

She also wanted to give him kisses

Strong little boy lifting his head!

Emma "reading" to Kellen.
It was a good practice day for Emma, learning how to be a big sister!

Little Sweetie

Extreme concentration here...precision is key.

Great book!

Still rocking the dimple!
More focusing going on

Why is Emma so excited?

She is going to be a big sister!

We'll be adding to the family sometime in mid-October, Lord willing!

We may have a girly-girl on our hands!

Emma has recently become obsessed with phones.

She learned the sign for phone, which she uses any time she sees someone's cell phone.

She talks on her old school phone.

She talks on her cell phone.

She talks on the TV remote.

She really likes to hold our phones when someone calls, but doesn't quite get that she is supposed to talk back. We're sure that will come...by next week :-)
