Farewell Fangs

As of last week, Emmett's center top teeth have really started coming through, so he no longer looks like he could be Dracula's son. Since vampires appear to be "in" right now, it was kind of fun to joke about Emmett being one of them with his silly little fang teeth on top. None of the pictures I took really do his hill-billy vampire grin justice, so we'll just have to remember how funny it was.

Emmett is getting braver with his standing. He will let go of whatever wall, person, or furniture he is steadying himself with in order to get his hands on a toy or reach to be picked up. He can only balance for a moment though, so don't go thinking he's about to walk any day now.

Liliana continues her antics. She's talking up a storm and parrots every word or phrase she hears - especially the ones we don't want her to repeat! It's amazing how bad some things sound when they come out of a two-year-old's mouth. I thought I had such clean language because I'm not a swear word user, but even some of my expressions of annoyance make me cringe when I hear my little one repeating them. "Stupid thing", "dang it" and "jerk" are definitely not as innocent as I once believed. It's amazing the things I learn and change about myself by being a mom!

I totally hear you about the innocence thing. Judah was saying "Oh my gosh!" the other day and Ricky and I felt so guilty. We didn't even really know we said that until it came out of his little mouth.
