She is still nursing like a champ, and filling out all of her little newborn wrinkles! She's lost some of her newborn baby look and is just so adorable! Four years ago on Mother's Day I was out in Washington visiting my family. At the time I was pregnant with Josh, and my Dad gave me a beautiful little rosebud, not yet bloomed, like me, who had yet to blossom into full motherhood. It's hard to believe that here I am, four years later, a mother of three! Happy (belated) Mother's Day to my Mom, Mothers-in-law, Grandmas, Aunts, and my 3 Sisters-in-law, who are all wonderful mothers! May 13, 2007.

Colby has a knack for finding Petoskey Stones at this irrigation pond on his family's potato farm. After a nice drive we stopped here for a little picnic and to find some petoskey stones for Mom to take back to WA with her. Josh found a big bullfrog, and Emmy had fun with Daddy digging in the bank. May 12, 2007.

Here's the picture of Emmy and Elayna's footprints. Emmy's is on the left, and Elayna's on the right. You'd never tell that Emmy was my bigger baby! I wonder if Elayna will be taller than Emmy as they get older, or if it has any significance at all? And no, Emmy does not have only 4 toes on her right foot! She just tends to cross her second toe over her third! LOL! May 9, 2007.

Emmy is still adjusting to a new baby in the house. She has moments of tender sympathy when Elayna cries, wild bursts of reckless freedom when my hands are full, jealousy when my lap is occupied, and moments like these in the swing, when she seems to be thinking, "hey, this is kinda familiar! Didn't I have one of these things just the other day?" May 9, 2007.

On Monday, May 7, I woke up with contractions and so we got our things in order, asked Great Auntie Gaye to come stay with the kids, and headed to the hospital. We got there and checked in at about 11 am. Here I am in my room, sitting on the birthing ball to help the baby move into a better position. She was facing the wrong way (posterior) and I was having back labor for the third time. May 7, 2007.
