the latest

After many attempts, Emery finally decided he likes watermelon!In an effort to avoid tantrums, Emery now eats in the front of the stroller (as he has boycotted the high chair)
Being silly
Here is my belly button
While I showered, Emery used his little chair to climb onto the tv stand, and then into the high chair to reach the light switches. I'm just lucky he didn't fall off!

Ever get to book group and think, "What page did such and such happen? Where was that quote I loved?" Or do you like to just take notes while reading? Maybe you love getting books from the library, but want to have some of your own thoughts documented when you return it? Dun Dun Dun...
This is my latest creation. It's a bookmark that you can take notes in. It is 3.5 by 7 inches (or I've also decided to make a smaller 3 by 6 size that will fit better in paperbacks) and has eight pages sewn together and a margin along the lefthand side of each page to reference chapters, page numbers etc. Now I can't take all the credit, I got the idea on the internet. BUT the ones they made were ugly! So, I busted out the scrapbooking supplies and this is how it turned out! Not perfect (it's handmade you know...flaw adds character!) but I'm excited to make some more! But alas I'll have to wait a few more days because in the process of making this one my paper cutter blade gave out. Now I'm in limbo wondering when in 3-7 days it will come. The all-powerful postal service always keeps me waiting!

ps-Anyone or their book club interested in this? I'm thinking of making them available for sale.

One of those days

Ok, so today was bad, really bad! Lately Emery has been really fussy and agressive (hitting and throwing things) and I kept hoping he was teething or sick and it would pass. But I guess this is just a new fun faze he's in. Then to make matters worse, today he (1)missed a nap to go to the pediatritian for his 18 mo. check-up where he (2) got a shot. Add it all up and what do you get? Terror child! He was screaming and reaking havoc all afternoon. Every little thing that I wouldn't let him do, he lost it! So I put him to bed early and after 15 min of screams he finally fell asleep. Whew! Now I'm just praying he sleeps through the night...
After many vain attempts to get Emery to eat dinner and asking him if he wanted to eat practically everything in the kitchen he would shake his head no. All he wanted (he points) was candy. Ug. Until I finally asked him if he wanted an apple, which he mutters, "uh hu". Here he sits, nibbling away on his apple.
ps-what do you do with an 18 month old when they thow a fit? I'm at a loss! Help!

Happy Birthday Joel!

Joel turned 27 on May 7th!
It's hard to take a pictures of yourself, but this is the best we got
Joel got the book "John Adams" and a few other gifts too.
We had a wonderful day hanging out with Joel, who took most of the day off. We had Chili's for dinner and German Chocolate Cake to celebrate. It was a nice break, since Joel is so busy these days!
Happy Birthday!
