Firsts........

Last week was full of firsts for the Pell family kiddos.........

And Johnny's first word is.............. "OOSH" or Shoes!!!

He is obsessed with his shoes. The first thing he does when we open the door to his room in the morning is point to the closet and say "oosh". He will follow us around the house with his shoes and squeal until we put them on. If he finds your shoes on the floor he will insist that you also put your shoes on. It is a regular sight now in our house for Johnny to be running around with his diaper on and "oosh".



We finally bit the bullet and took Emma to her first dentist appointment. I was worried she wouldn't be willing to open her mouth and we would pay hundreds of dollars to have the dentist say "better luck next time" but Emma was on her best behavior. When we left she said it was her "favorite day ever" and begged to come back soon. Needless to say she had no cavities......


The infamous hair. I took Johnny for his first haircut last week. I was so worried he would look like a different little boy but Nikki did a great job and just shaped his fro. I love it! I think it looks so much better and wish I would have gone sooner. No more drippy curls in his face or fly away frizz. Just that beautiful head of hair in all its groomed glory......



Now that Emma has been to the dentist she is teaching Johnny the need to brush his teeth. He now has four teeth and loves to brush his teeth with big sister......

Love the picture of Emma in the dentist chair.
Love Johnny's glorious hair.
And love how Emma is so nurturing.

I know life is hard with kids, but these stories & moments keep us going!

JT looks awesome! Love his fro- And Emma's too for that matter! :) Isn't it fun to "stay home" (or more like go out and do stuff) with your kids all the time? I LOVE it! :)
