March is over....

Well, April is finally here. Emma will be 6 months old next week, I can hardly believe it! It seems like Harry's first 6 months took MUCH longer, but Emma's has just flown. Once she got over her miserable colic and the worst spit-up-itis I have EVER seen (well, she's mostly over it!), she's become such a little sweet potato. She absolutely adores her brother, she's actually getting ready to crawl simply because he sits across the room from her! She gets her little butt in the air and then up on her arms and then can't figure out what to do from there, but she can get a few feet away from her starting point simply from wiggling. Part of me is really excited that she can move and part of me is totally dreading it.
I played an April Fools joke on Jay yesterday, I sent him a text message saying, "I'm pregnant!" and then led him to believe it for a whole 5 minutes. I thought it was pretty funny being that I obviously wouldn't tell him that I was preggo in a text message, but he was pretty furious!! I felt bad, but he's over it now and, of course, relieved that I'm NOT pregnant! I sent one to Katie too, but she was much less mad than Jay. Although, pretty disappointed that we're not expecting. Sorry, Kates!

Okay, that's the last Easter picture, I promise!!! And yes, Harry IS mad, but not about the bunny- he loved the bunny, he just didn't want his picture taken. It was right after we'd had our pictures done at the studio, and he was pretty frustrated with me!
This is Ems getting ready to crawl. Don't you just love her little unicorn horn?
Harry got an easel and LOVES to paint. However, again, he did NOT want his picture taken!
But, I was allowed to take a picture of his picture. Isn't it beautiful??? :)
This is Emma's new face. She sucks in her bottom lip and goes, "MMMMMMM." I"m hoping it's going to lead to "mama," since Harry said "da-da-ya-ya" at least 8 months before he even came close to "mama."

And this is my doodle-bop again in her jumper. I just love how bright her little eyes get when she's happy. Her hair is starting to lay down, at least on top. The back is still crazy though, even with the bald stripe in the back that babies get from sleeping on their backs. It's been quite a challenge to style since it's too long to let go loose anymore, but not long enough all-over to do pigtails or anything. ;)

Love the new look of the blog - very Spring-y. And, as usual, Emma is so pretty!
