::14 Month Update::

Emma has been keeping me busy so I have yet to post a little update on her so here it goes. She is going on 14 months old and is such a little firecracker. She love running around the house, playing behind the curtain, crawling behind the couch, climbing the couch and Madison's bed. It is no wonder she always has some kind of bruise on her head.

She is starting to communicate more, when I say communicate I don't mean talking. Emma has learned a few words in sign language, thank you and milk. But she has developed a few things of her own. She will smack her lips when she's hungry, bark when she sees a dog, bites me when she's sleepy and brings me her shoes when she wants to go outside. We're working on the talking but so far it's only mama and dada. She also says "coco" alot but we have yet to determine what it actually means.

Of my two girls, Emma is the silliest. We used to call Madison silly monkey and Emma is following suit. She puts plates of food on her head, makes silly faces, and immitates her daddy snoring all just to make us laugh. She loves it when we laugh at things she does. Maybe she'll be some sort of performer? She loves attention!

We are loving this stage and seeing her personality develop. I'll be sure to post recent pics and write an update on Madison as well.

I love my girls!!!

I feel like lately I have been taking this time in their life for granted. I get so frustrated sometimes when Emma is crying and Madison screaming that I forget how fast this time passes. Then there are those weekends, like this past one, that everything goes smoothly. Both girls are happy and Mommy is well rested. I realize just how much I love this age. They crack me up everyday with the little things they say and do. Emma with her crooked little teeth and awesome laugh and Madison with her sassy comments and gorgeous face. I could hug them all day!!! Emma is running around the house chasing her sister and Madison just looks too grown up. I look at her expecting to see a chunky baby with bangs but instead I see a little girl who likes nail polish and has to have a purse when leaving the house. This weekend I took them to the park and Emma was climbing and going down the slide all by herself. That girl is fearless!!!I also put a pony tail on Emma for the first time. She is finally getting some hair and she looks so freaking cute with her little pebbles do. I just want to freeze time and keep them this little forever! They are a ton of work and wear me out but when I see them playing together it is so worth it. So I made a vow to myself that every time I get frustrated or cranky at them I have to remind myself that I will miss this once they are 15 and don't want to hang out with Mommy anymore. One of my favorite songs describes it perfectly.

Five years later there's a plumber working' on the water heater
Dog's barking', phone's ringing'
One kid's crying', one kid's screaming'
She keeps apologizing'
He says They don't bother me.
I've got 2 babies of my own.
One's 36, one's 23.
Huh, it's hard to believe, but ...

You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days hadn't gone by so fast
These Are Some Good Times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this
You're gonna miss this
Yeah, you're gonna miss this

I love them, I love them, I love them!!! And now I'm crying! I'm such a sap sometimes.
