I'm NOT A Boy!

Everyone seems to think Emma is a boy even when she is decked out in pink, so I thought I would dress her up in one of daddy's ties. I get so tired of people asking is she a boy even though she is in pink b/c she just really looks like a boy. UGH! Why can't people keep their mouth shut?! People are just drawn to Emma anywhere and everywhere we go and I love it...until they say something dumb!

It has been awhile since I dressed her up in the "itty bitty titty committee" shirt so I thought I would see how well it fits now. It actually fits!

"What? Me? But I'm an angel mom!" I can hear it now.
This is what too many pictures will do to a princess in one afternoon.

Sweet angel

"Why am I in a tub?"

Where'd My Clothes Go Mom?

I can open my mouth...

this wide! Can you see my tonsils already??

"Hey mom, I have a hand!"

"I can make some funny faces too!"

"And I'm pretty cute."

El Salvador Lady

My cousin Kelsey went to El Salvador last summer on a mission trip and was so incredibly sweet to bring Emma back this dress made over there. It was soooo cute on her! Thanks Kelsey!!

More Presents For Me?

Paul and Carmen stopped by the other night to give Emma her birthday presents. She got some awesome clothes from Hannah Anderson and a cute toy. Thanks Paul & Carmen!!

We Have A Crawler!

Emma has crawled for a second before but last night she slowly took off! Of course, she was chasing a ball. She crawled a few different times and usually she gets frustrated but not last night. Yay for Emma!

Sweet Laughter!

While trying to get Emma down for a nap today Braxton sneezed so I said "bless you". Well Emma thought this was the funniest thing ever & was laughing so hard I thought she was going to stop breathing! After a few minutes I ran to get the camera so I could catch it on video. Here is the end of her laughing spell!

Sunday Night Fun!

We started off Vday with pancakes & eggs! Yum! Some of the pancakes were made into cupids & hearts.

Here's some random pics of Emma this afternoon.

This spoon is so filling.

This is from last night when she passed out on the floor! She was a tired girl.

Back to today!

Look at her 4 teeth!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine Day! We didn't do much around our house. George got me a Biggest Loser workout DVD & a new book. I got him a new travel coffee mug. What awesome gifts! Last night we ordered to-go food from O'Charley's and somebody (I won't mention who!) forgot the chocolate cake that mommy had waited for all day! Boy was that somebody in trouble when he got home. He ended up going back to Outback to get me one of my favorite desserts. What a great husband!

Enjoy the pictures!

Emma's 12 Month Dr Appt

Yesterday we saw Emma's pediatrician, Dr. Dudley. Everyone was so excited to see Emma & to see how big she's getting. She weighs 16 lbs 2 oz and is 27 inches long. The doctor was happy with her weight gain & everything. We also talked about everything she does now like waving bye-bye, eating some food by herself, standing, walking with help, etc & she says she is right on track for 9-12 months. We will wait until May to start whole milk all the time b/c Emma needs all of the nutrition from the formula still. However, she said if we want to give her milk some of the time that is fine, just don't use it for her main intake. Other than that the appt was great...well not the shot part! She got 2 shots & then they pricked her finger which was pitiful! It's so hard to sit there & hold your baby while she's in pain & not be able to do anything. She had tears streaming down her face and she just looked at me. After a few seconds she was fine and enjoyed her new purple band-aid. So it was a wonderful appt & we go back in 3 months!

Today is Emma's actual birthday so here are pics from today! She wore her birthday Princess shirt today and her new cute headband.

Mommy & daddy got her a "big girl" carseat for her 1st birthday & it was waiting for us when we got home tonight. Isn't it pretty? She loves it already!
