Baby Emma

Our little girl, Emma Joann, was born on March 14th at 3:54 pm. She was 6 pounds 15 ounces and 19.5 inches long. 
She has a full head of dark hair and is the littlest of our babies. 

The grandparents and big brother and sister were her first visitors. 
Cole and Cate were excited about their big bro/sis gifts!
And sweet Cate was very excited to meet her little sister and wanted to hold her first. 
More pictures to come about our first weeks at home and of our sweet baby girl!

Cole's 5th Birthday

Cole turned 5 last Friday!  He's growing up so much and it's so crazy to think that he is 5 now. We had only been home from the hospital for two days, so Tony's parents helped us make his day special. 

They took Cole to see the movie Zootopia, went to lunch, and took him to Target to pick out a birthday gift.  He picked out the Paw Patroler. Both he and Cate have loved playing with it!

He came back in the afternoon and we hung out while the girls napped. Then he opened the rest of his gifts after dinner. 
Tony's parents came back for dinner and cake at our house too. Cole picked Slim's Chicken for his birthday dinner meal. 
We sang Happy Birthday and had cake and ice cream!
Cole wanted to stay up all night to play with his new toys. We spent the next few days putting together Lego sets too. 
Then Cole got to celebrate his birthday at school on Monday when they got back from Spring Break.  He brought cupcakes and Star Wars napkins for his snack to share with his friends. 
He had been talking about his birthday on the calendar at school all month!

The birthday is a big deal to the Cole Man, so we wanted to make sure his day was special and fun!

Happy Birthday Tony!

March is full of birthdays for us!  We celebrated Tony last weekend with a cookie cake on Friday night when we had some friends over for dinner. 
And then again on Sunday (his actual birthday) when we had dinner at his parents' house!  No one was disappointed about double cookie cakes!
The other good news is he doesn't have to share his birthday...our little girl was still holding out on making her appearance!

Celebrating Cole's 5th Birthday!

We celebrated Cole turning 5 last weekend with a fun party with family and friends at the Tulsa Children's Museum. He chose where he wanted to have his party this year, and it was a great idea! We had their party room for one hour first. They had these cool chalkboard table cloths that the kids got to color and draw all over. It was a huge hit!

We decided to have donuts instead of a cake since his party was at 10 AM. We ordered four different types of character donuts (Captain America, Spiderman, Super Man, and Batman) plus some glazed and chocolate iced. There were not many superhero ones left that's for sure! Cole picked out a "5 Candle" for his donut and we all sang "Happy Birthday" to him.

The cute birthday boy!
And little sis!
Then he opened gifts...lots of superhero toys this year!
Then we moved the party to the exhibit rooms at the Children's Museum and everyone had tons of fun playing, climbing, jumping, and running around!
The tape slide is always a favorite! Tony made Cate go with him.


It was a beautiful day outside, so we played on the playground for a little bit with a few friends. Cole and his friends from school all had their light sabers ready to go! We took a few family pictures too.


We have come to love birthday parties on location! Cole had such a great time playing with all of his friends all at once! He had been looking forward to his birthday party for weeks, and I think it lived up to his expectations. Now he's counting down the days to his "real birthday"! He's getting a lot of celebrating in this month!
