jackson started pulling to standing one week shy of turning 11 months. this warranted the lowering of his mattress. he is still not crawling just scooting or dragging himself on the ground. so maybe he will just skip to walking :)

emma taylor turns 5 {art party}

for emma taylor's 5th birthday we invited 4 friends {and their parents, no siblings} over for an art party. they each got to paint their own canvas. they also got to take home tattoos, a dance ribbon, and bead necklace at emma taylors request. we ate pb&j sandwiches, watermelon, pasta salad, and cheesy corn puffs. every girl ended up in a princess dress and emma taylor had a blast!

first lost tooth {e.t.}

 photo IMG_1868_zpsaykvfqwd.jpg

emma taylor lost her first tooth on her 5th birthday. she had had two very wiggly teeth for awhile now and just 2 days ago exclaimed to her aunt hannah that her tooth was going to fall out on her birthday. she was right. she lost it in the produce section of publix. she literally lost it. we looked and looked but couldn't find it. luckily, she didn't seem the least bit upset about not finding it. she proceeded to tell everyone including the cashier that she had lost it and it was her birthday. she cashier behind us over heard and "accidently" dropped a dollar bill and told her that the tooth fairy must have taken her tooth and left the money behind. although she knows the tooth fairy isnt real she had quite the time pretending. what a fun birthday this has been.
