Emmy has the worst mullet! Luckily her super curly hair hides it pretty well. I'm posting a pic of her in the bath - that's the only time you can really see how long her hair really is. But it's short on top and I don't know why! She's never had a hair cut, only her bangs. So, until the top grows more, she's stuck with a mullet, that's right, she's mulleticious! (Mulleticious = a wonderfully delicious mullet) (:

I lied, here's another New Words post :) I knew there were some words that I forgot . . .
"Backpack" - Sounds like "ba pa". I absolutely love it when she says this.
"Hello!" - the way she says this is oh so cute!!! With personality and all!
"Nemo" - sounds like Mo Mo
"Max" - sounds like "Ma". Her boyfriend's name is Max :)
"Bop bop bop" - says this when she wants to hear "The Nicest Kids in Town" from Hairspray
That's all for now. I'm sure I'll have another post soon. I guess I'm not retiring the New Words post after all!

I think this will be my last post on new words. She's learning so many words, its too hard to keep up! So here are her newest words:

We decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather on Saturday and went to the park to fly Emmy's new Dora kite. We had such a fun time! Jake helped Emmy with his kite flying skills while I took pictures on my new camera. She was interested in the kite for a little while but was more interested in running around.
She can see her Dora kite flying high in the air!
I think Jake had more fun than Emmy flying the kite!

The other day when I was cleaning my room, I noticed it was really quiet and thought, "Uh-oh, where's Emmy?" Any of you moms out there know that when you can't hear your child it's usually not a good thing. So I started calling her name and looking around for her. I found her in our bathroom and there she was, plunger in hand! She had seen us using it a few days before and now she apparently wanted to use it, too. She has been copying us a lot lately, she's such a big girl!

My birthday was this past week and I just have to say I had a GrEaT day, thanks to my wonderful family!
I have such a wonderful husband who will do ANYTHING for me - I'm so lucky!!! I really like photography so he got me a new camera! I'm so excited to learn all about it so I can take some awesome pictures! It's a Canon Powershot SX100 IS. Doesn't it look nice? Stay tuned for some pics from this baby.
My sister got me this charm bracelet from Lea Sophia - I LOVE it!
And I'm anxiously awaiting a gift card from Joann's from my sister-in-law.
And my mom went way overboard, of course, and got me some much needed new clothes!
Thanks to my family for such a great birthday!

Well, I'm back from my adventures in China! It was an amazing trip, I'm definitely glad I went. I love learning about new cultures and seeing the way people live. I've posted a lot of pics to show you just a little of what I saw on my adventure. I do have to say that I NEVER want to be away from my family for that long again - 9 days is WAY too long!!! I was ready to come home and see my baby and husband!
We started in Beijing, then went to Suzhou, Hangzhou and ended in Shanghai. I didn't like Beijing that much, but the rest was awesome.
Here is a picture journal of what I did and saw:
This is the Olympic arena where the 2008 Olympics will be held in Beijing this summer.
Lingering Garden - there are more pic's of Lingering Garden in the next post.
They need help translating, I think . . .
The entrance to The Forbidden City, where emperors lived for many, many years.
Garden area inside the Forbidden City. The Forbidden City was seriously huge. It just kept going and going, courtyard after building after courtyard.
Rickshaw ride - a guy rode his bike w/ us in this little carriage behind him
We ate in a Chinese person's home. He cooked us lunch and it was soooooo good! I was a little scared about what we would have to eat but it was the best meal of the trip, by far.

The Great Wall - it snowed while we were there! That's why the pics are not very clear. But we still climbed the wall. It was amazing! And it was really steep. And cold.
A ton of Chinese people wanted to get pic's with me! Usually one by one. So I decided to get a pic w/ a group that wanted pic's w/ me. I guess because I'm tall and white :)
Lingering Garden. It was so beautiful!
Notice that the child is wearing split pants w/ his diaper sitcking out. All babies wear these there. When they get a little older, they don't wear a diaper underneath so you just see their bum. When they have to go potty, they just squat wherever they are and go!
So cold! In front of Tiger Hill
Tiger Hill. It's a 7-story leaning pagoda on top of a hill that is over 1,000 years old.
People working hard in the tea fields, that's right, tea fields. Those are all tea bushes.
In Suzhou, they call this area the Venice of the Orient - there are bridges going across and people live right on the water, just like in Venice
There were so many BeAuTiFuL gardens
You can always count on McD's to be wherever you are!
