Our Last RSV Shot of The Season!

Emma saw Dr. Mahesh a couple of weeks ago and I think I forgot to post these pictures. She had a great appt and weighed in at 18 lbs 6 oz! What a chunk! Her lungs sounded great and we don't have to go back until August for a check up! Way to go Emma!

Here she is getting weighed...

A whopping 18 lbs! Whoa nelly!

Checking her oxygen saturation level

And with Dr. Mahesh! Poor guy, as soon as he walked in the room she started screaming bloody murder and didn't stop until he left. That was before the shot! He just laughed...I'm guessing he's used to it!

And a comparison shot of them from Nov 1st, 2007 when the oxygen came off! Look how much she's changed!

Our Latest Trip to Chattanooga!

So I'm starting to think we should join a playgroup here in Huntsville b/c with gas being almosts $4 gallon we are going to go broke traveling to all of our playdates! :) Our latest adventure took us to the big town of Soddy Daisy where our wonderful friends Richard and Mandy live with their 16 month old daughter, Lindsey. Richard and Mandy went to Tech and we've known them for several years. Anyways, we had a blast and want to thank them for allowing us to "trash" the living room and for feeding us! Lindsey is such a beautiful little angel and we were sad to leave.

Where's Waldo? (um, I mean Emma?)

So this is what happens when George takes Emma away for the weekend without Mommy. She gets lost in the world of stuffed animals! Ru-Rus has been wanting to do this since Graham was a baby I think and finally got all of this together. These stuffed animals were Beth's and George's and have a home in the big garage. I really don't think I would have the patience to get all of these out and then put them all back up! Looks cool though huh?

Can you find all 3 grandkids??

Where's Emma?

Emma's Got Something To Say

Emma has become quite the talker recently and she also loves to scream for no reason. Today she was watching Baby Babble (a DVD) and at the end the lady always says "goodbye" and the next thing I hear is Emma saying "goodbye!" I looked up at her and she continues to say it. It is the cutest thing! She also says cat, doggie, daddieee, good girl/good boy, and has said momma a few times. Enjoy the video!

Almost Walking!

I keep forgetting to mention that Emma took her very 1st steps last week!!! Last Tuesday while in Chattanooga she took her 1st step and again at home that night. Then on Wednesday she took TWO steps for George and me. I'm really hoping she will be walking in time for our vacation in May, but I don't know if she will be or not.

In other news we leave for Destin on May 10th and won't return until May 17th!!! I've been waiting for a vacation for the past couple of years and I can't believe it's finally almost here. Emma's already got 4 bathing suits, bathing suit cover up, pool float, sand toys, and beach towels. I get so excited about trips that I'll probably have us packed in 2 weeks! :)

She's My Blue-Eyed Girl

Yesterday we played outside for awhile & of course I'm picture happy! Here's a couple of the best shots. More to come later!

Happy Saturday!

Emma spent almost every waking minute yesterday looking at pictures of her cousins! It was so cute. She always loves looking through the photo books and occasionally ripping out pictures, but yesterday it was nonstop. And the cutest part was when she would talk to them! Recently she has been talking up a storm and just playing by herself. George and I could sit there for hours just listening to her. What a doll!

And Some More!

The Traveling T's!

A friend that George and I used to work with at O'Charley's lives in Chattanooga and has a little boy named Parker. Emma and I decided we need to get out of the house and go visit her "future boy friend". Parker is 3 months older than Emma and cute as a button! It took him a few minutes to warm up to Em, and by the end of the day he was head over heels over her. :) Or maybe he was hoping she would leave him alone if he gave her some attention...who knows. Emma loves other children and wants to touch and love on them so here are some super duper cute cute cute pics!

Tracie & Parker

Handsome Man!

I thought the purple trees were so pretty so I had to take a pic...who knows who the random couple is.
