I forgot to mention my mom's cousin, Beverly, stopped by! She lives in Ontario and they haven't seen each other in about 31 years. It was awesome meeting them! They(she and her hubby Glenn) were driving to Palm Springs and stopped by on their way. When they arrived I had had a bump on my wrist. I had no idea what it was and she told me... It was a Ganglion Cyst. I went into the doctor this past Monday and had him take care of it. He did the local anethstigesa(SP) and popped it. It was interesting. Much less painful that just hitting it with a book, which is what Beverly suggested.
I sign into Blogger every morning and check on my friend's blogs etc and keep saying to myself I need to update my blog. I just never get around to it, but I'm taking the time now.
I'll post pictures of the boys in a separate entry. I'm not very good at getting them in the order I want with the explanations in the right place with Blogger.

Valentines Day
We dropped Chase off at our friend Megan's house(she does a Date Night every month where we offers babysitting, she is also our babysitter when I work). We took Emmett with us and we went to TGI Fridays for dinner. We love that place! After dinner we walked around the mall and did a little window shopping. We didn't do to much money was a bit tight with me being on maternity leave and not getting that extra paycheck. But if you think about it why should we go all out one day a year to show our love to that one person? Why not do a little everyday. I mean it's all good to have a couple times where you go all out, but really we should be showing our love to that special person(and others) all the time.

Little Bit O' Lately
Emmett is now over a month old. He is so fun! Still sleeps great and doesn't cry much. He only cries when he wants something. Chase is such a great helper, he wants to be the one to buckle Emmett up or put his binky in his mouth and the list goes on. My aunt sent an outfit down for Emmett, she lives in Canada. I love it, it's a long sleeved onesie that says "Lil' Canuck"! It came with a hat and bib that say the same! Emmett is very smiley. His eyes have gone the dark brown like my and Chases. We noticed the other day that his ears are different shapes.
Chase stepped on Emmett for the first time yesterday. I know it won't be the last. He didn't get to hurt, just startled. He cried for maybe half a minute. We started potty training Chase again this week. He has been doing fantastic! He has gone at least 3 hours staying dry and going in the potty every hour. He told us twice today that he had to go and he did! I've been getting up early the past several days and exercising with the Wii Fit for about 20 minutes. I'm feeling the burn and am hoping to keep that up and get back down to Normal Range.

Emmett is 2 weeks

I figured I should post something about him now that he has reached 2 weeks. Emmett is such a good baby. He hardly cries and he sleeps really well. He will go for almost 6 hours at night. Chase is such a good big brother! He loves to sing to Emmett and hold his hand if he makes noises in his sleep(trying to comfort him). The other day Chase just sat next to Mark as he(Mark) was holding Emmett and kept saying "you're so cute!" He is my big helper, he will grab things for me when I'm feeding Emmett. We took Emmett to church this past Sunday, he slept the entire time! Emmett had his 2 week check up this morning. He is now 10 lbs 1 oz and 22 in long. The nurse told me that usually with big babies when they do the PKU test they have to prick babies foot twice, but Emmett bled well and she only had to do it once. He still has a bit of jaundice, but doctor says it's fine. Emmett's belly button is all clear now of the umbilical cord stump etc. He has had a bit of gas the past day, so he grunts alot in his sleep. But he is just wonderful!
