What's new with Emma & Evan. Well...Emma has learned to climb and she climbs on EVERYTHING!!! I am not excited about this but she seems pretty proud of herself. We have a couple pictures of our little climber! Evan is watching Emma closely and trying to climb himself but chunky monkey can't quite get himself up just yet. We had to take him to the doctor this week. He woke up Monday morning and his eye was red. He had been to the woods the day before with Justin and we weren't sure if something got in it or if it was pink eye. Thanksfully it wasn't pink eye. While we were there the doctor FINALLY gave him an antibiotic for his cough and congestion that he has had for 3 weeks. She didn't give us anything for Emma...just more cough medicine. Evan weighed in at 25lb 10oz. He is a big boy and I love every bit of him. Him & Emma both will give you hugs and kisses when you ask for them and it seriously make my heart smile each time!! Speaking of hearts...I decided to do the Heart 4 Kids program this year that His Radio...our local Christian station...is putting on. Each year a few weeks before Valentine's Day, they get people to make homemade Valentine's Day cards and mail them in. Then on Valentine's Day they take them to sick little children in the hospital. I heard on the radio this week that sometimes a child has gotten betwen 50 & 60 Valentine's day cards. Of course that depends on how many cards they receieve and how many kids are in the hospital...but that is awesome. I thought this would be a fun tradition to start with Emma & Evan. Plus, it is a reminder of how thankful we should be that our babies are healthy!! So, the whole family...Justin included...have been working on these cards. Emma & Evan didn't do to much because I didn't want them ruining the cards but I did let them glue the eyes on. Actually I put the glue on and they stuck it to the card. I am not brave enough to give them glue just yet!! :) See below our process and the finished product! I think they are adorable!
