Hip Hop Class

Emmett is taking a hip hop dance class.  This was the first class he has taken where I do not go in.  All the parents sit outside and watch in the window.  He did great, he walked in, did exactly what the teacher said and he had fun dancing with all the kids.  The funny thing was when the teacher asked everyone what is their favorite fruit and he replied carrots.  Hahahaha he doesn't even eat carrots!

Father's Day Weekend

 We had a super fun Father's day weekend.  We went swimming at our house on Saturday.  On Saturday night we went to Sean's 30th golf birthday party. On Sunday we had breakfast with my mom and dad and took Emmett to his first ever movie, Cars 3!  We did more swimming and a BBQ dinner.  It was a really fun weekend.  Emmett swam across the pool with his head down all by himself.  We have been swimming everyday in our pool and practicing.

 Golf party in our golf clothes LOL

Father's Day morning!  Emmett got Grant some tiny lego and we went to see a kids movie.  Hmmm Father's day seemed more like kids day.

 We loved the movie.  It was so cute, Emmett had his little box with popcorn and candy.  He ate the whole thing and sat and watched the movie not getting up even one time.
Looking good in his Cars shirt, hat and tin box.

Around the House

In the last few days Calvin has started to get his top teeth and he is not happy about that!  He is in so much pain, and I feel really bad for him.  Luckily they are coming in fast so hopefully it will only be a few more days of this screaming and unhappiness.

The June gloom has really hit hard haha, everyday its overcast till about 3pm.  When the sun finally breaks through normally its too late to swim or do any summer activities, but I know by next month it will be really hot.

We having been doing small upgrades around the house.  As something breaks or goes out we replace it with something better.  The people who owned this house before us had installed all these weird lights that have bulbs that are impossible to find in the store.  SOO when the front door light went out we had to replace the whole fixture, but it looks much better now with the new light.  I plan to do the same thing in the back yard too.

Emmett has been saying some super funny things lately:
Early in the morning we hear the cookie monster doll singing old mc donald had a farm.  Emmett is laughing and Calvin is screaming.  Emmett comes in our room and says, "cookie monster woke up Calvin with a Moooooo!"  (more like you woke up Calvin with the doll LOL)

Time for a nap... I say, "shh you have to be quiet, talk quietly Calvin is sleeping."  Emmett screams, " I am not going to be quiet, I am talking loud!"

I need to remember to start taking more pictures, I now understand what so many people have told me about the second child, you just forget to take pictures.  With the first child you take pictures everyday of every thing they do and by the second child you can barely remember to take pictures of important things.

Well that's what is happening around here!

Calvin is 8 Months Old

So much is changing so fast!  Calvin is already 8 months old and he is getting so big!
He has a lot of new tricks and it seems like he is learning more and more everyday.

On the day he turned 8 months he started getting his top 2 teeth, he learned how to push himself into a sitting position from the crawling position and he started eating big chunks of food.

He also started to do the pincer grasp.  We noticed he would gather a bunch of the cereal in one hand and then pick them out with the other hand!  Its crazy how fast its all going.
The best part is he has started to finish off Emmett's food.  There was a square of Emmett's sandwich left and I broke off little bits and he chewed them up and ate it with no problem.

We lowered the crib last night because I know he will soon be pulling himself into a standing position.

P.S. its just about impossible to get a good clear picture of these kids!

Visiting with Nana

Nana's visit flew by.  On Saturday we went to Balboa and had lunch and walked around.  On Sunday we had Nana and Col to our house for swimming and playing.  On Monday, Memorial Day, we had a BBQ at Jo's place.  It turned out to be a little cool so we didn't do much swimming.  They left this morning super early so we said goodbye yesterday.

We were lucky to have 4 days with quality time for Nana and the kids.  Emmett was so excited to see Nana and very sad to say goodbye.

Nana Is Here

Yesterday we got to visit with Nana and Col.  They are in town for a few days and staying near the beach.  Emmett was so excited he didn't sleep the whole day! We had a great time catching up and swimming and barbecuing.  Today we are heading out for more adventures.

 Emmett was in heaven!  He got Lego and a remote control truck!
 Nana had this special blanket made for Calvin and we Love it!

Last weekend it was so hot that we were able to go swimming.  I think its the beginning of the heat, but who knows we will probably still get some cool days.
This was the first time Calvin was able to swim in the big pool.  Just as I guessed he loved it.  He has always loved the bath so really this was like a huge bath for him.  Being in the sun for just a short time has made me realize he will tan easily.  Emmett is the type of kid you have to really watch in the sun cause he is so white, but I can tell Calvin is going to be able to get tan.  Regardless we will always use sun block and have them covered up.

We spent quite a bit of time splashing around and having fun.

Happy Mother's Day

We had a great Mother's Day today!  We were up at 545am so we decided to head to breakfast early.  We went to Coco's right when they opened.  I think we were there at 7am and guess what there were other people in there too!  We had a delicious breakfast and we were done and home be 830am haha.  
The good thing about eating super early is your kids can make a lot of noise and no one cares because there is no one in the restaurant.

Emmett, Calvin and Dada all made me a really cute card and we spent the rest of the day playing at home.  I did go grocery shopping while Grant watched the kids. Its so much easier to shop without kids!  I just made sure I got a special treat for Emmett because he really wanted to go with me.

Beach Day

Yesterday we went to Newport Beach and had lunch and walked around.  We took the ferry over to Balboa Island and walked around and had an ice cream.  A huge highlight for Emmett was the construction that was being done on one of the streets.  They were pouring concrete so he was super excited to see that.  After all the walking we headed to the light house park so Emmett could run wild and have more fun.

 After breaking this stroller we bought a replacement at full price.  That is how much we like it!  A few days ago I was looking on the App Offer Up and I saw someone was selling a second hand one for $20.  so I jumped on it and now each boy has their own!  I can't believe I have been buying brand new stuff when its so easy to find great kid stuff used.

Grant has been doing some extra projects on the weekends, here he is showing me what he has to wear for today's grinding project.  I guess its going to be messy!
