All Smiles! *NEW VIDEO*

It's almost scary how darn cute my baby girl is. In the following video, you can see how she's started smiling. She can focus on toys and faces much better now. Here, she can't take her eyes off the bears hanging above her pack-n-play. Oh, to be a kid again. :)

Well, we woke up this morning all snuggly in our warm beds to SNOW! Just enough to dust the ground and cover roofs. I can't remember the last time it snowed before Thanksgiving! Now it really feels like the holidays.

Here's a picture from off our back porch (mostly melted here).
Here is Emma bundled up for a trip to Wally-World. She was excited about the snow, too!

Here's Looking at You, Kid!

Here are some recent pictures of little miss Emma.  So cute I can't hardly stand it...even on days like today when she's copping an attitude.  That's a momma's love for you.  :)

Officer:  "Hands Up!"  Emma: "I surrender.  I am guilty of being the cutest baby in the world."

Dressed in her Sunday Best:
Something extra peaceful about a Sunday nap:

It's a hard life for a little girl:

Doctor's Visit...Right on Track!

Emma had her first month (technically 5.5 weeks) check up today with the pediatrician. Dr. O'Kelley actually goes to our church and is super nice so we're thankful to be able to see him. Emma is up to just over 9 lbs and 20 1/4 inches long! Right where she should be. Other than a little cradle cap on her forehead (nothing some cream and time won't clear up), she got a clean bill of health AND was deemed "beautiful" by Dr. O'Kelley - but we didn't need an expert to tell us that. :)

Developmentally, she is starting to develop a real personality. She has begun cooing those sweet baby noises. She even is starting to smile at us. However, she also can have a bit of an attitude when she's impatient for food or sleepy. Gee, wonder where she gets that. Hee Hee.

"Watch Me Play!"

Watch Emma play on her play mat...looks like fun! Not sure if she really knows what she's doing at this age, but she seems to enjoy making the chimes jingle. So cute.

One Month Old!

It's hard to believe, but Emma is now one month old! As a mom, I'm amazed at how fast she is growing and already want her to slow down. Here are a few pictures we took yesterday (her one month birthday).

Happy Halloween!

We're all just about feeling better now, just in time for Halloween! Even though miss Emma did not have an actual costume this year, she did sport some pretty cute pumpkin attire to celebrate the festivities. Here are some pictures...Enjoy!

"My first Halloween and all I got was this stupid hat."

"Babies Gone Batty!"

Pat from the church carved this for Emma...great, huh?!
