Can you believe Emma is two months old today? Me neither! Here she is sleeping in her swing tonight with the Christmas tree in the background and her Carolina Tarheels bib on in honor of the big game tonight.
A lot has happened in the last week of Emma's life. She had her first Thanksgiving...got to meet Great-grandpa who came to visit from Florida...helped decorate the house for Christmas (well, she slept through most of it, which was a BIG help - HAHA)...AND I went back to work. I was pretty sad about going back to work after two glorious months home with my baby girl, but it's time to get back to reality and settle into a schedule. Things have gone pretty good so far. I haven't cried (a small miracle) and Emma has behaved pretty well for both Eric and Judy, our great family friend who is helping to watch her through December.
Oh...and here's the best news of all. Are you ready for this? Emma is sleeping 9-10 hours a night. Yes, you read that right....TEN HOURS!!! She goes down around 9pm and sleeps until usually around 7am!! We know that this could end any day, but it sure is nice while it lasts. The only down side is that she tends to be a bit fussier during the day and is hard to get down for naps. Still, pretty awesome, huh?!
Here is Emma with her Great-grandpa and sleeping in her Christmas pants.
