Ooohhh, Pretty Dress!

Today I put Emma in this cute little dress and we headed outside for some pictures. I had to bribe her by taking her to our neighbor’s house. She loves our neighbors, Van and Margaret, and always wants to roam around their backyard! They have lots of beautiful flowers and such. So these pics aren’t the best quality due to the full sun and an uncooperative 18 month old but they are cute nonetheless. Enjoy!

One of Margaret’s beautiful flowers. Had to throw that one in!

Thanks for looking!


Yesterday Emma went the ENTIRE day without a bottle!!! Can you believe it? That was the first time ever and keep your fingers crossed that she never has a bottle again. She’s been drinking out of a sippy cup for several months now for juice/water, but when it comes to her milk she wants it only in a bottle. So yesterday she asked for it all day long but she never got it and she was fine with it. Mommy and Daddy are SO happy!

We Saw Dr. Mahesh Today!

I didn’t realize how hard it was to take Emma to the dr until today. Now that she is so mobile she is all over the place whenever we go out in public. At the pulminologist they have a door that stays closed unless you press the red button. Well Emma had cleaned out my wallet awhile back so I had to call George about our new insurance cards. In the process of calling him I notice Emma has taken off towards the exit door. Thinking the door wouldn’t open I thought we were ok until the door actually opened! Who knows how that happened but luckily I was there and caught her. Then I was updated my paperwork while Emma runs around and talking loudly and wanting to go see the little baby across the room. I was sweating by the time they called us back. She is officially a handful! :)

Now on to the visit. Dr. Mahesh and his nurses are so wonderful and it is always a treat to see them. The nurses couldn’t believe how grown up Emma looked and at her huge vocabulary. They also loved her curls!

Onto her stats-her weight with all of her clothes on was 21 lbs 8 oz I believe. I don’t know how she managed to put on a whole pound in 3 wks b/c the girl doesn’t eat at all! But I’ll take it! Her ears, nose, and chest sounded wonderful and her runny nose is due to ragweed allergies. Then we started talking about the synagis shots that Emma got last year from October-April. Technically she doesn’t qualify for insurance to cover them this year and at $2,000 a shot (I think) we can’t afford them. However, if I go back to work and she has to go to daycare Dr. Mahesh thinks we can get them covered. So if we go that route, say a prayer that it all works out and she gets the shots. I would feel much better.

I guess that’s it for now. Tomorrow we go to Dr. Dudley for her 18 month appt. I love going to Dr. Dudley too so it’ll be fun and she doesn’t get any shots! I’ll update after our appt tomorrow and until then, toodles. :)

Emma Loves Her Daddy!

Tonight Emma got to spend lots of time with her daddy. Our friend Sam was celebrating her birthday by going out to eat and I had a bad headache/stomachache so daddy took Emma out alone. Then they came home and played hard! I just happened to catch them playing for a couple minutes and it is just so sweet. Enjoy!

"Where'd It Go?"

In case you didn’t know, our sweet little Lily is a little overweight. Okay, she’s alot overweight! At our last vet visit the vet told us to get her to move around more and that cats love those red pointer lights. So George’s coworker left his at work one day or something like that and George brought it home. We thought we would try it out with Lily while we borrowed it. The funny thing is, it wasn’t Lily that chased it around, but it was Emma and Braxton! Those 2 are trouble and so funny together!

Tu Tu Fun!

So mommy decided to get brave and tackle some new pics without daddy’s help. Pictures were so much easier when she was smaller! Anyways, after much frustration, here a some super cute ones. Yes, some of them are out of focus but Emma is so fast these days. Let me know what you think and enjoy!

“What in the world are you doing to me?”

Very adorable face! Love it!

“But mooommm, daddy said I could play with his guitar!”

Doesn’t she have some gorgeous blue eyes?
