Now that it is summer and the nights are longer we usually go out and play in the front yard when Grant gets home.  Its so fun to run around and kick the ball and play t-ball.  We get to burn some energy and the kids love running with Dada.

Here we are waiting for Emmett's hip hop dance class to begin.  He is still loving the class.  I of course love watching him dance around and learn all the moves.  The freestyle is the best because the kids don't know what to do.  Emmett usually chooses to stand still and wave his arms or to jump in place.

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!
