Patterson's Fruit Farm

So we attempted to go and pick apples. Little did we know that they weren't "picking" that day. Instead we took a wagon ride back to the family fun fest area and Emerson had a blast playing on the slides, in the woods, on the tractors and in the hay. She loved everything, except for the corn maze. Can't blame her, it looked a little too long, even from the outside. Turns out that Patterson's doesn't make their own apple cider, it is made for them. It also turns out that if Emerson drinks two servings of it we get to spend a lot of time in the bathroom! We also discovered that the crates in the Patterson Fruit Farm store were stamped with another orchard's name, from another location in Ohio. Hummmm?

Happy Birthday Sleeping Beauty!

Emerson decided she wanted to have a birthday party for Princess Aurora. So we did. She helped bake the cake, picked out sushi, made a card, wrapped a gift (one of her dolls dresses... talk about regifting!) and sang. Bryce watched. I am amazed by this chicks creativity and imagination. She can sit and play with three dolls for an hour and just make them have conversations and dance and play doctor... amazing.

Hello BIG Boy!

Bryce went for his two month check-up this week. He is currently 13.13 pounds, 23 and some inches and ADORABLE! He has been smiling for a while now, but he is also cooing up a storm. He will coo back and forth with you as if in a conversation. He has also been working on pulling himself up and balancing while sitting on laps. He so wants to be a sitter, he just doesn't know he has a little while till that will happen!

Happy Birthday to me...

34 was probably the most bizarre birthday to date. Although we all got to hang out together, Emerson was not having anything and Bryce was screaming most of the day. Every attempt on getting out of the house failed, until Eric called in reinforcements and we made it to Three Birds, The Market and The Rush. Emerson insisted on a cake, so at 7 PM Eric ran to DQ and purchased me the ultimate Princess cake!

Play Date with Hannah (and Andy)!

Hannah and Andy came over for a little play and lunch! Dang, does Emerson love her some Andy!

Hey... I can smile!

Bryce is working on his happy side. Not as easy to crack as Emerson, Bryce has managed to give us a giggle and a good smile at least once a day! He tends to be very serious and takes everything in.

2 Months ALREADY???

I seriously feel like the past two months have flown past, but at the same time it feels like Bryce has been here forever! He is doing really well! He has just started to really smile and make the cute baby noises (up until now it has been screaming...)! We are very happy that he has realized that night is for sleeping and he is working on sleeping past three hour stretches. We are very excited to see his personality come out even more over the upcoming weeks!
