I would also love the rest of Stephanie Meyer's books.
for scrapbooking supplies, fabric, clothes,
or to get one of my quilt tops professionally quilted.
I would also love games...computer, board, card, or mental.
This was extremely hard to think of ideas. I could only think of things that I wanted for Emerson. It is amazing how your mind becomes so focused on your child that you forget that you should be buying stuff for yourself too.

Here are some videos taken this month of Emerson.
On the second day at the ranch, we were out talking and all of the sudden people started to say that there was a bear. We watched it climb a tree, and then it stayed up there. I guess that the bear was just old enough to be away from the mama, so we didn't have that worry. I was still a little scared, so I got close enough to take some pictures, then I went to the other side of the cook house and stayed there.
I love this picture of Emerson and Aunt Olivia. He is just so little there.
Emerson rarely folds in half anymore, I had to get a picture of him here. He is just so sweet.
While at the Ranch, Emerson turned 5 months! So we had to get some pictures of him to celebrate! Right after these pictures, a big storm came in and we have big hail, lighting, and thunder! We watched it on the porch. Jason put a piece of hail into Emerson's hand. He didn't know what to do. It was just a completely new sensation for him.
Once I got back in Utah, I immediately got to go to my cousin Megan's baby shower. It was so much fun showing Emerson off the the Bush family. There Emerson got to play with another baby really for the first time. He had his first experience with sharing. They were being really cute together.
This is Emerson with his 2nd cousin, Tony. They are a month apart exactly (Tony being older), but Tony is so much lighter that Emery. I can't believe how big Emerson is getting.
We had a lot of fun this trip. We just wish that we could have had time to visit with some of our friends and have more time with our family.

Here is the best picture of showing my hair before...I forgot to take one right before the cut.
All the foil goodness.
And the hair after. I love how it turned out. It is just what I wanted. If you can't tell, it was inspired by Kherington on "So You Think You Can Dance".
And I just have to put a cute one of Emery playing with Emily (even though you can't see her) here...I can't have a post that is all about me when I have so many cute pictures to show of Emers.
