My MEME

I was tagged by friend Melissa to do this MEME thing. The idea is to write six things about yourself and then "tag" 6 more people to do the same. I think almost every one I know with a blog may have already done one so I don't know who I'll tag...the buck may just stop here but oh well. I don't know how exciting this will be but here goes.

1. I never thought that I wanted children until my nephew was born. I was in the delivery room for the entire birth, and god bless my SIL because she did it all naturally. (Pass the drugs to this girl please and thank you.) Anyhow..it was just such an amazing moment for me at that stage in my life and I fell so in love with that little boy and I just knew that I wanted to be a mommy one day. I really hope to have another baby one day but if I don't I am so so so content with the fact that I was given the chance to be a mom and that someone needs me as much as I need them. Emma has forever changed my life as all you mom's reading this can relate to.

2. I am very scared of the dark. (yes mom...still!!) I sleep with the t.v. on every night and if I am in bad weather I immediately start searching for any means of fire to keep the room lit with candles or lanterns and flashlights or all of the above. Like the power could go off in my office for example and if I am in sudden pitch black dark I will have a panic attack until someone can find a light source.

3. I used to swim and dive competitively and one year I made it all the way to the state championship in diving. It was held in Millidgeville, Ga and I think I was around 11 years old...that was a long time ago so I really can't remember. I do remember feeling so good about myself for making it there. I was a very competitive person when it came to sports so I was so excited. I didn't do that great, I think I came in sixth place. I remember that before I went to do my first dive I went out to "test" the diving board and you cannot do this in a state competition so I came to find out. Ooops. But it is still a great memory that sticks with me to this day.

4. I am fiercely loyal to my family and friends. My family means the world to me and my friends are amazing. It makes me happy that I am still such good friends with people I have known from the 3d grade, from middle school etc. I'm thankful for the new friendships I have made as well. So if you consider me to be a friend..I've got news for you, your stuck with me.

5. I would love to write Children's books and I think I would be good at it.

6. I love word games, word puzzles, crosswords, the jumble...if I don't make it on to the Wheel of Fortune one day I will simply be crushed. Words just make sense to me. I often wonder how I ended up working in accounting because I have to be honest...I suck at math. So go figure right?

videoThis will be short and sweet. Emma loves her "moon and star" pajama's and of course for some reason at the end out of nowhere she wants to do a somersault. Where did that come from? HA! She is the funniest little girl!

September Happenings



Yes, here is is October 5th and I haven't even finished catching up on September yet! Lets see..on September 12th Emma finally got her first haircut. We took her to Pigtails and Crewcuts and it is the cutest little children's salon. Emma did great. When it was all said and done you could hardly tell she even had a haircut but I still thought it was cute just as well. Emma was also chosen to be the Student of the week at her school. I just love her daycare and they are so great about making the kids feel special. I will be so sad if I ever have to move her from this center even though I have thought about doing it so that we can spend more time together, even if it is in the car. For right now I'm pretty content with just leaving her. Finding a daycare that you trust implicitly can be tough so I figure I shouldn't mess with something that is working so well.
On September 22nd our good friend Kiersten welcomed a new addition to her family, 10lb 3oz precious baby girl Allison! She is an adorable bundle of joy and I could not be happier for her and for her family. Emma and I went to visit and of course Emma loved the new baby as well as hanging with her pal Elliott. It is so fun to watch our kids grow up. Emma turned 2.5 on the 25th and I still can't believe she is on her way to 3 years old!
I cannot believe it is October already, where does the time go? We are starting to get ready for Halloween and Emma seems very excited about it. I still have no idea what she is going to be this year?? I probably need to get on this little task. Emma's Grandma and Grandpa Mac, my dad and step mom, will be coming into town that day and we are having some friends over so it should be a very fun Halloween. I am looking forward to it.
Oh, and Emma has taken a liking to Football............her daddy is so proud!! Seriously, we were at a birthday party yesterday for sweet little Kate and there was football on in the other room. Out of the blue Emma says "Come on Mama, lets go watch some football" It was too funny. We had a great time at the birthday party, hat's off to you Lolo for an excellent party, and I couldn't help thinking back to when Emma turned one..it seems so long ago.
