Waking up to wildlife

This morning Emmett woke up early, so I put him in bed with me and turned on Little Einsteins. A few minutes later, Emmett is AHHHHH-ing over something. It is a deer outside our window. Then if you look closer she has two babies beside her. Emmett was amazed! We traveled around the house looking out different windows as they moved. We then went outside and he was in heaven. Until he expressed just how excited he was and off the deer family ran. It made for a nice start to our day.

We had our first MOPS meeting yesterday. Should be a lot of fun this year. There are lots of great women to meet and get to know. It was also great to catch up with a few moms that I met last year.

I decided to take down the gate to the stairs. Luke doesn't know yet, so unless someone tells him , he'll find out when he gets home. It seems to be just fine. I put all of his riding toys in the basement so he couldn't ride them down the stairs. No falls to speak of and he can come and go as he pleases. No more dragging you to the gate and throwing a fit because I am not going downstairs. We'll see...there's no going back now.

We are headed in to the gym and then on to coffee with the girls. Should be a fun day.
