I haven’t blogged in a LONG time. I keep thinking about it but couldn’t bring myself to put anything in writing. I’m still struggling with it as I sit here. March wasn’t the best month for us. The Japan earthquake, our house got broken into and we were robbed, and then on March 27th Pitt was in an avalanche. It was so scary and I still can’t believe the story. It sounds terrifying for everyone involved. One of our friends passed away and it has left a hole in many hearts. It was a terrible accident and has forever changed our lives. Waves of grief keep coming from the loss of our friend and it’s still hard to believe that Garrett is gone. But I will forever be grateful that Pitt, Mark, McCall, Dustin, Stacy, and Molly made it home. There are many emotions to sort through and we are all still healing.
I am feeling happy today though because we’re boarding a plane to California in a few hours! Things I’m looking forward to…sunshine, the beach, Pinkberry…oh did I mention SUNSHINE! We’re taking Emmett, so wish us luck!

Emmo is 18 months old this week. He is a funny guy and makes me laugh everyday! He’s learning lots of new words and we’re working on animal sounds. He’s so observant of his surroundings and points out birds, trucks and airplanes to me. He loves to play peek-a-boo and gets hysterical when he’s in his highchair and I pop out from around a corner. He’s down to 1 nap a day and I think it’s helping him sleep better at night. He’s eating well and gaining weight. I’m sure he’s over 20 pounds but just barely. Too bad they just changed the car seat recommendations, we’ll keep him facing backwards for another 6 months. He doesn’t seem to mind because that’s all he’s ever known.
