5 months old

I can't believe that Easton is 5 months old today. It seems like I just had him and every time I look at him he just gets bigger and bigger. He no longer looks like an infant but a little boy. He is such a joy to have in our home. I am so surprised that he is still intact. Emmi loves him a little too much. One day she will get it back, but he is such a good sport about it. He love to laugh and smile. He is definitely a "good self-esteem" baby because he never cries with anyone. He is starting to grab things and loves to grab our faces when we hold hm and plant big slobbery kisses on our cheeks. He loves Emmi...even when she hurts him. He loves to be thrown up in the air. He loves to babble and drool. He loves his binky, fingers and toys. He is growing like a weed and is starting to sit up and can roll over from his tummy to back. I feel like he is a genius because Emmi only did that once until she was 13 months. He is such a sweetheart and I love him SO much. We love you East!!!

Funny things

Emmi has been talking SO much lately. She is finally catching up to where she should be with her speech and she says the funniest things.
~So this morning she was playing with her legos and trying to stack them into a big tower and they kept falling and she kept saying to me.."Mom, I have to practice. I have to practice."
~The other day she was talking to her bunny and I guess bunny was doing something it wasn't supposed to and I heard her saying to bunny "that is un-a-cep-ta-ble" because Clint says that to her sometime. Emmi that is unacceptable.
~She also loves to say "actually". It was bed time so I said for her to go to the bathroom to brush her teeth and she said "Actually mom, I come in 10 more minutes."
~She loves to give us a time on things. "10 more minutes mom", "2 more minutes", "one second mom". It is so funny. She sounds so grown up.
~She has also found the word "stupid" which we are trying to end ASAP.
~She has been hitting Easton lately and so when she does it I tell her I am angry. So of course the other day I did something that she didn't like and she said to me " make me so angry". It was in such a mad little voice too. I guess I need to watch how I talk to her.
Anyways, I thought I would post some cute little sayings before I forgot them.

Snowed in

So yesterday and last night we got hit by a REALLY bad snow storm. At 5:00 last night there wasn't anything on the ground and by about 9:00 Clint was out shoveling snow. Then when we woke up this morning there was about a foot of snow. For those of you who know the East coast, there aren't very many storms like this with good snow. It usually turns to ice as soon as it hits the ground. They also cancel/shut the whole city down if it is even forecasted to snow. So you can imagine what is going on. No one is driving and nothing is open. It is really fun though because Emmi has had a blast going out in the snow and climbing on all the snow drifts. It is really beautiful and kind of cozy. But this is about as much as I can handle snow. I am going to be sick of it by this time tomorrow. I am looking forward to Texan winters....50-65 degrees in January!!!! Anyways, I thought I would post some pictures of the kiddos and the snow!!
