Four bottles of Excedin ago... This was from a month or so ago but she still talks like this!

Having fun dancing with some paper... doesn't get her skills from mommy or daddy- I guess Aunt Mary Ann Has been working with her!
Just a few videos that we finally uploaded:) I have another cute one that we have to get uploaded.... maybe I can beg daddy tomorrow night to do it:)

Thanks Papa for teaching Emma how to eat like a lady:)

There is better one to come tomorrow. This is before she really got the jump down!!

This is from May when we surprised the Goode's. Aidan could not get over Emma or have enough of her!

One more to come later.... I am tired and want to go to bed! Not going to wait up for it to finish!

What can I do????

You are starting to catch up with the other babies! You are no longer our little peanut!
- You roll over onto your stomach and like it for a short time and then cry... You are not able to roll back over yet
- You sat today with the boppy as support

- You held your bottle yesterday for the first time on your own... you then realized it was work and haven't done it since:)
- Like to hear your voice! Lots of screaching and oohhhs and ahhhhh's
- LOVE your froggy Lilly and the Wubanub.
- Love to jump in the 'Johnny Jumper' and play the music!
- Eat cereal, any veggie so far. Tried the fruit but either got sick at the same time or had a reaction to pears so we are going to put that off until seeing Dr. Butcher!
- At the doctors visit you weighed 14lbs 10oz. When we go in two weeks we will get the % for weight and heinght.
- You are an amazing Sleeper! You take 2 hour nap in the AM and a 2-3hr nap in the PM and sleep 12-13 hours at night
- Bedtime is between 5-5:30 (wish that was mine too)
- Wake up anywhere from 5:00-6:30
- Barely ever cry! Only when you are tired!!

I truly feel I have been blessed with an amazing, wonderful baby girl! I just hope she continues to be this easy and anymore that follow are this easy:)


What you learn at 6 months???

And another....

(photo shoot of 6 months!)

You all know how I LOVE pictures so here are a few more 6 month shots.... not getting what I want so I am sure there will be more tomorrow....

Not a winning team....


On a side note... I have not been able to get this family out of my mind since earlier this week when I friend posted their blog on Facebook. I have thought about them every day and said a prayer that they will find happiness in this incredibly sad time! Little Chloe is gorgeous and will bring such happiness to the family through their grieving. When you say your prayers or are thinking how thankful you are for your life please say an extra prayer for this beautiful family because they need it as they enter this new journey of life!

These are the moments when I realize how lucky I am to have an AMAZING daughter (I only hope my next can be this good) and have a WONDERFUL, CARING husband. I sometimes may take this for granted but it is moments like this that make me realize how wonderful and how lucky I am to have THIS life!

Feelin' A Lil' bit better...

Looks like a mug shot!

I went to the doctor today to see what in the world this rash was from! I am 14lbs 10oz! Getting BIG!!! The rash.... well the Doc said it is some viral rash that needs to run its course. I had my ears checked did not like that at all! My throat looked and she said it was REALLY red (probably from screamin' the last few nights! Everything else look A OK! So we came home and mommy decided that I needed to stay in bed! I thought I had her fooled! She is smarter than me! I got away with getting out of bed the last few days because mommy felt bad for me.... Not anymore... She put me down... I cried...she put in paci and WALKED OUT!!! So I thought I will flip over... I cried, she flipped me back... we did this for about 45 minutes and I got tired out- She was NOT giving in. I then decided to sleep for about 3.5hours until 5 when mommy came and woke me up (I was on my belly too!)! I was not very happy but ate and took a few picture on my actual 6 month birthday ( I am sure mommy will do more this weekend!!!) and went back to bed by 6! I have to catch up on my beauty sleep!

Here are a few photos....

Look How I have grown over 6 months

6 Months!

And not so happy! Poor baby has a horrible rash and is very cranky. I took the day off to take her to the doctors to see what is going on. For a baby that loves to sleep she is not loving it right now. Still sleeps most of the night. Slept from 9-7 today but screamed from about 4:30 last night until 9. Today when I tried to put her down for her nap she screamed. So when having trouble Baby Einstein will save the day:) I went into her room to try to go through some of her clothes and went out to find this!

Happy 6 month Birthday Sweet Baby!

The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I am sad that my Great Grandma fell and broke her hip and have to have surgery today:( Look at what Grandma found at the hospital gift shop though!

My mommy LOVES Eric Carle and we read the books all the time! I used to have the Very Hungry Caterpillar shirt but it is now to small for me:(
I love my new caterpillar and the elephant that goes with it! I just was not in picture taking mood when Daddy brought it home. Now that I get sleep during the day with Kassi and Lael being here(mommy can't believe that I am still sleeping 18hours a day! She googled me to make sure I was ok... I am! I just like my sleep!) mommy lets me stay up until 5:3o so I can see daddy! Actually I start to get really tired and cranky around 4:45/5:00 but mommy tries to keep me up so I can see daddy for a few minutes. I played with him for a few minutes and with the caterpillar and then decided bed time for me and Lilly!

Saddest Day in Television History!

That title was on Friday but it hit today when I watched the DVR'ed Guiding Light from Friday! I am so sad that the Spauldings, Coopers, Shane's and Lewis will no longer be an active part in my daily life! What will I do??? I remember watching this with my mom and sister when I was little, rushing off the bus in elementary and Middle school to catch the end and rushing home from HS (I was not speeding though!) to be able to catch the whole show. Emma and I laid in bed watching it today.

Emma with a shocked look that they really took GL off the air!

Even Guinness watched the last G with us!

Yes, we were in our jammies still in those pictures.... Rainy day here and no need to get dressed to just sit around the house!

Mema- Look at what is on my jammies!

Look at those cheeks!!!

What Do These Things Have In Common????

Nice bottle of wine...

Fruits and Veggies...

Cooking Apples...

Baking peaches....

(not shown Zucchini, avocados, bananas and carrots)

These all have...
FRIDAY NIGHTS in common!

The first picture of the bottle of wine is what used to be included in my Friday nights.... now all the above was included while making A LOT of baby food! What a fun Friday night I know.... You are all jealous. I NEVER thought I would be doing this but I enjoy it. It may be because there is some guilt not being with Emma throughout the day so I may think this is a way I can make it up to her in some way... making sure that she gets some healthy food and it is a lot cheaper to make the food then buying it.

Here is a picture of Emma Rose...

Thanks Heather, Zach and Zoe for the outfit! It fits:)
