|More About Our Family
|We live in the state of... |
We live in beautiful Oregon. We are driving distance from the coast where we can be found flying kites or riding the dunes. Matthew likes to go snowboarding in the mountains and is very much looking forward to teaching our children how to as well. There is desert land here as well that we like to vacation with family. Hiking is very popular in Oregon with great paths through the woods and the coast. There are farms close by that you can pick your own fruits. We have blueberry and strawberry farms close to us that we love to go to and pick from as a family. We look forward to sharing our beautiful state with our new addition someday soon.
We bought our home a few years ago. We needed more room to grow our family. As soon as we walked into our home we were in love! There is so much natural light that we don't need to turn our lights on at all during the day. There are 2 large living areas downstairs so Emma and her soon-to-be sibling (our dogs too) can run circles around. All three bedrooms are upstairs which is great having them separate from our living areas. Emma has her own room. The third bedroom was Emma's playroom. She used to tell us that when she gets her baby brother or sister, she will let them have that room for their own. We have been turning it into a nursery! We have a full bathroom upstairs for the children to share. This is our dream home where we plan to spend the rest of our lives.
|Our Neighborhood: |
We live in a very family-friendly housing development that was built in 2006. We have an HOA that keeps the neighborhood looking nice. There is a playground that they built that is only for residents and guests. It is 2 blocks from our home so we can walk or ride bikes there anytime we want. Emma has many friends her age all over our street. They are able to safely ride bikes and scooters and play tag in the streets. We have become very close friends with our next-door neighbors so much so that we consider each other family =). They are very kind. Most of the homes in our community are owned by young families which has been great. We enjoy spending time together out front watching the kids chase each other, having each other over for dinner and birthday parties, and walking to the neighborhood park. They are all excited to include our next child in playtime!
Emma is our happy, energetic, curious and kind daughter. She loves wearing dresses (especially her princess dresses). She loves all her baby dolls and Barbies and likes to play 'family' (recently it has changed to family ninja haha). She will sing lullabies to them and tuck them all into bed (we have gone to bed several times to the surprise of every single doll and stuffed animal she has tucked into our bed and under blankets, she has set out on the floor for them). It has been so much fun watching her little personality develop! She is very friendly and outgoing every time we go to the park and she sees someone new she will run up and say, "Hi my name is Emma. Wanna be friends?" Anytime she hears music she stops everything to put on a show of singing and dancing. She is learning to help out around the home and is responsible for feeding our dogs and putting away her clothes. She is so excited to become a big sister so that she can read stories and sing to them.
