Please, oh please,

won’t you please slow down, Miss Em! You’re growing way too fast for mommy this week. You could just about make my cry. This week, you’ve changed to at least 2 sippy cups per day, started to actually eat your puff cereal instead of just throwing them everywhere, crawling forwards instead of backwards and today, YOU CUT A TOOTH! ¬†What’s next? Are you gonna crawl out to the truck and drive off to college???? You’re really wearing mommy and daddy out. But, we love you!

Here’s a picture of the booger last Sunday before church, wearing the dress I had made for her first Easter dress (that turned out to be WAY too big at the time).


Why There Will Be No Stokes Family Christmas Cards in 2010

I could write you a list of excuses about long nights at work, busy evenings with Robbie and the baby getting dinners ready and slaving to take care of everyone, but in this case, those are not the reasons.

The reason we have no Stokes Family Christmas cards in 2010 is IN-COOPERATION! And not from Robbie this time!! Different times now I have had Emily dressed in Christmas attire, sitting in front of the tree, and every single time she either 1. makes really strange faces, 2. won’t be still, 3. turns around and pulls ornaments off the tree or 4. grabs the branches and shakes (while making funny faces)!

Here are some examples of what we tried to get this holiday season for you. There are also some pics of her helping me make cookies. Hope they brighten your week as you get ready for Christmas!!!
