Animals and Birds


I have been accumulating some photos of birds and animals over the past few months and I got enough that I could make a blog post about it.  =]

I MAY be wrong, but these birds are Snipes. (who knew there was actually a bird called a snipe?!)




This is blurry but I caught him drinking some water! 



An ugly ol' Armadillo!


Mr. Cardinal waiting on the fence. 





I think this is some sort of woodpecker. 





Mr and Mrs. Cardinal enjoying the snow. 


I don't know why this picture is snowing...but ok. 






This doe was in our backyard. 


I could have sworn I got a picture of a bee on these flowers but I didn't, so heres. a picture of some flowers. 


This is my parent's neighbors cute little pup. 


Two pairs of ducks. 


All my ducks in a row. 


It's funny, these gees were not letting those ducks get too close. They would run them off. 


I love Canadian Geese. They are my favorite bird. A while back we had 20 or 30 on our pond at once. 



'Ol Oscar a few days before we got his haircut.


I'm glad I got a good reflection on this one. 


Beautiful!


Playing catch =]


We have two beavers on our pond. 


Butterfly.


I wish I could turn this!


CATCH BOY!


HOPE YOU ENJOYED =]

Emily is 2 months!

Wow! I can't believe how quickly these 2 months have went by! I also can't believe it's been a whole month since I have done a blog. Ugh..you think I'm busy? haha! I actually sat down to do one the other day and I SWORE in the blog that I would not let anything keep me from finishing the blog...well a week or so has gone by so I obviously gave up!  Oh well, I am starting fresh with this one!

I can't believe how much Emily has changed in just one month. She has started to get a personality. She is REALLY happy (98% of the time)! Whenever Taylor or I walk into the room her legs go crazy and she starts smiling! She is getting used to the camera too. =]

I asked her if she was going to help me with my blog today and this were the reactions I got...because of course like any person who talks to a baby I ask the same question 100 times in a high pitched voice just to see if they react! haha!





We started on somewhat of a schedule when she was about a month old and we have stuck with it and it is working really well. We start our morning between 6:30-7:30.  I feed her either when she wants or every 2-3 hours or before we leave for any long journey. About 7:30 at night we do bath, feed and bed by 8.  She normally sleeps until 2.  I set my alarm anyway just in case because I don't want her to go more than 6 hours without eating for now.  Then we go back to sleep until about 5:30-6:30 and I get up and open the bedroom door and peek out at Taylor (who is up by 4:30 for work) and he knows that means I want coffee haha!

We have Emily's 2 month appointment tomorrow so we will see how much she weighs!! I'm guessing 10#8oz....maybe a little heavier. She's a growing girl!

 
Happy 2 months little girl!
 
 
Here she is next to Kow! I have to make a side by side of last months.
 
 
Emily was baptized into our covenant family a few Sundays ago! She slept through the whole thing but that's OK. May God grant her faith in his time. =] LOOK AT THAT HANDSOME DADDY!
 
Why do we look so sad?
 
 
 
ANNNNNNDDDD GET READY FOR A PLETHORA OF PICTURES!
 
 
I told her to be cautious...

 
Doesn't she look like my dad in this picture? So funny!

 
Here she is posing with Kow and her shirt made by her BCF!

 
The other day we caught her sucking her thumb! Too cute!

 
The hat is a little too big!

 
Taylor being the wonderful daddy that he is!! =]] I sure do love them both!

 
Do you think that shirt is a little small for her now? She fit in it like a month ago! This is her lazy fat man pose haha!


She had a grip on that brush so I helped her brush her hair!
 
We took pictures the other day!

 
I'm thinking this would make a good meme?
 
 
Such a little thinker!

One Month. Too exciting!

I can't believe our little Emily is one month old today! At 9:18 tonight! This month has definitely has been crazy and fun at the same time! As Jim Gaffigan would say "I haven't slept in 7 years" That's about what it feels like haha but it's so worth it because I'm spending it with my little tiny girl!

Emily has come a long way in just a month.  I watched a video of her the other day when she was about a week old and she was so.....quiet....now it's like she grunts all the time and makes noise in her sleep! She is starting to smile more now and we even swear she laughs sometimes. She is also moving a lot more.  She flails her arms around and kicks her legs and lifts her head up. We got to try cloth diapering a few days ago and sadly I only have 2 diapers that fit her right now and they worked really well! And she looked super cute! She has to be about 10-12 pounds before fitting in the others!

Yesterday we got to go to church for the first time with her (outside the womb) and she did pretty well.   At the start she had to be fed but after that she slept through, then at the Sunday school she needed to be fed again.  It wasn't all that bad though.  It could have been worse.  Everyone was so happy to see her.  They all said how pretty she is and how blessed we are to have such a pretty daughter.  There is another family there who is expecting their 6th baby (they have 3 boys and 2 girls now) and they came over to us to see the baby and the little kids just went crazy "oh what a pretty baby...such a cute baby!!" They were so nice! I just love our church! Seriously...I've been to churches that even wonder why we are married so young..our church encourages marriage and sees children as a blessing. We are blessed with such great fellowship and consider them like family to us!

Right now Emily is sleeping in her swing.  Everyone tells me to sleep when she sleeps but I always find something that NEEDS to be done...like now I should probably vacuum or do the dishes or think about what to make for supper (everyone also tells me that stuff can wait...so I chose to write instead.)



She's one month! I think she's starting to lose her hair on top...so she looks like her GrandPop!


Emily and Kow!

Alright...who does she look like more?
Taylor?

Or me?


Daddy and Emily before church!


Just relaxing!

Silly!!
