This little guys smile continues to brighten everyone's day! He is trying so hard to crawl these days...give him a few weeks and I think he will have mastered it!

We're going to Florida at the end of March so I was trying on some summer clothes...does he look ready for the beach or what?

While we were away...

While we were at camp the big boys stayed with Nana and Papa. As you can see they has a lot of fun. THANKS!

OneLife 2010

This year Emmett made the trip to OneLife with me. I really wanted to go but wasn't ready to leave him for that long. Emmett and I stayed at Kyle and Jenny's which allowed me to go to the sessions once he was asleep for the night. Thank you so much for letting us stay with you and for watching Emmett each night! Oh, Kendell rode up on the bus with us, she was a volunteer, which meant she helped in the kitchen a few times and played with all her camp friends the rest of the time! It was fun to have her around as well.

Emmett could not have been any easier. He just went with the flow and really enjoyed being with all the students!

Stitches for the Stroms!

Here he is all stitched up....I had to put this picture first!

This morning just as I was leaving to take Caleb to preschool (Erik was home packing for a retreat) Jackson slipped going up the stairs. Erik told me we had to go to the ER and I did not want to believe him. Thankfully Linnea was able to pick up Caleb and the rest of us headed to the ER. Jackson was so good and kept saying "I just wanted to see Emmett." He had been on his way up to see Emmett when he slipped! In the car he asked for Gramma to pray for him, so we called her of course.

They first gave him a numbing cream and then we had to wait 20 minutes. He was totally himself, often saying things like "I can't do that (smile, bend over, etc) because I have this thing on."

The open wound.

All swaddled up like Emmett.

Still smiling.

He got 6 stitches total and was a perfect patient. The PA and nurse could not believe how good he was. Way to go buddy! We always thought Jackson would be the first injury!

Sanne's birthday

New favorite picture! Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the birthday girl! It was a fun party...starting at the Swedish Museum followed by ice cream across the street and a book exchange instead of gifts. So fun!

Do you think these boys love their little brother? They pulled these chairs out of the closet to sit and watch Emmett playing in his exersaucer.
