Five Months (Almost)

Here is Emma at almost five months old (in nearly two days). This has been a great few weeks of firsts. First meal of cereal with a spoon sitting in her big-girl high chair...first time rolling over...first time pulling mommy's hair (ha!)....and first time SITTING UP, as you'll see in plenty of the pictures below. Wonder what this next month will hold. The pictures are all in random order....just a bunch for you to enjoy!

Videos - Emma in Action!!

Here is Emma's first attempt at eating cereal from a spoon! (Don't mind the cheesy commentary.)

And here she is doing her new trick - ROLLING OVER!

And this one is so super cute of her laughing at one of her toys. You may have to turn your speakers up to hear it really well.

4 Months Old!!! (and lots of pics)

I am ashamed that it's been almost a month since I've posted ANYTHING! Time just flies by and I'm always so busy now. Being a mom means very few free minutes! Anyway, Emma is now FOUR MONTHS OLD and growing like a weed. Her check up on Friday went well. She is just over 24 inches long, and 12lbs 10oz! Still looks pretty petite.

She is now playing with toys on her own pretty well, almost sitting up, grabbing her feet all the time, and DROOLING like crazy! She makes all sort of noises like she's talking to us, chuckles like an old man, and cuts her eyes over like a flirt when you talk sweet to her. She's such a stinker!

She's doing great at daycare, but has spent a few weeks sick from the other kids. A stomach bug went around and she caught it - which was not fun. Then as soon as she got over that, her snotty nose and cough came back. We'll be SO glad when Spring is here to stay (and the warmer weather!).

Here are several photos of our big little girl!

All smiles! She is the absolute cutest kid ever.
With our wonderful friends, Judy and Rick.
