Getting Closer

 The above title could be used to describe a couple of things in my life. My house and my girls. We'll start off with my girls.

When we found out that we were having another girl I thought to myself, "Please Lord let them love each other". I don't know if it's going to stay this way (especially through teenage years), but my girls love each other very much. Emmalee is constantly astonished by her big sister. When we hold her hands and she stands she seems so proud of herself and starts looking for AK to see if she is watching. Anna Kate loves the fact that she has a captive audience. Her only complaint is that Em doesn't clap for her. I know it's still early in their lives, but I hope that this is an early projection of how much these little girls love each other.

Take a look at our last couple of weeks:

Hanging out on our new front porch (something that I hope we do a lot of )

AK has to help feed "Baby Emmawee"
Pulling up and standing alone for the first time!

I think they love each other!

Now for the house. We have a roof! The guys finished decking, felting, and putting the metal on yesterday. It took a little longer than I had hoped, but we're there! We have windows, our fireplace, and a clawfoot bathtub. Very random things all put together, but they're things that are complete and that I am proud of!
The heating and air people are installing today. Kyle and his dad are wiring the house today. The plumbing is being started today I think. It's crazy fast and I'm so excited and thankful! Soon (as in the next couple of weeks) we will be making decisions on cabinets. A-master get ready!
Windows, windows, windows!
Pops and Kyle got all of the stuff for the light fixtures installed.

Check out my metal and chimney!
