One cool chick

how do you like Emma's shades? Michael and I got these for her this past weekend at Gymboree - aren't they so cute?! This was at Michael's game Sunday. They were off a few minutes later, she can only take them for so long!


She slept 10 hours last night without waking up once. The kid is a sleeping champ! I, of course, didn't get as much sleep. She ate at 7:30 pm, then went to sleep at 9:30 and didn't get up until 7:30. That meant I kept waking up thinking she would be waking up to eat. She didn't. Tonight, I'm telling myself to stay asleep! Posted by Picasa

Too cute!

I took some pictures of Emma at 8:15 this morning. Yes, I put her in a dress and took pictures bright and early this morning. Couldn't pass up the good light! :)

I love this first picture because you see her eyes are actually blue, not black as they usually look in pictures.

Renee sent this adorable shirt set to Emma. There's a shirt for 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year. I'd meant to take a picture of Emma in the 3 month shirt on May 15th, but forgot. I plan on doing a scrapbook page with pictures on her in all 4 shirts eventually. Thanks Renee!

And as you can see, she really enjoys eating her hands. :)

Emma scrapbook pages

Hi! I thought I'd post some scrapbook pages of Emma over the last 3 months. You can click on them to see them bigger. Keep in mind, I'm not a real good scanner - so they're aren't really crooker/don't have anything cut off/have equal borders! The one page is blurry on purpose, I really like the picture of her, that's why I posted it.

More pages!


Last ones!

She's 3 months old!

so I'm seriously slacking on this blog. I'm not going to try and play catch up though. Here are some pictures from yesterday. Emma's already three months old! It wasn't a great day yesterday though, I don't think she was feeling very well. Thankfully, Michael was able to get her to smile last night and I got these pictures.

Virginia in pictures - Part One

Last week, Emma and I went with my mom to visit my Grandma and other family in Virginia. We stayed at my Uncle Hugh's and had a great week seeing everyone. The following posts recap our week, but they are in a completely random order, with pictures from different days posted together, and the same days spread throughout the various posts. You can blame Picasa/Blogger for this (since I couldn't upload them all at once) - I did. :)

Emma sleep smiles. I caught this on the way home at a Wendy's.

We went with Regina to Durham NC to go shopping. There was this really neat indoor/outdoor mall. Of course it was raining, so we didn't really enjoy the outdoor part too much!

Emma is usually so good at restaurants, but she had a major meltdown Wednesday night. We went to dinner with my Mom's cousins Reginia and Georgia Brann and my Aunt Shirley. The meltdown wore her out, and she slept like this in my mom's arms for an hour and a half! She was ten weeks old Wednesday!

I love this funny face!

Part Two

With my Grandma. She loved holding Emma, would've held her the whole time if she hadn't needed diaper changes and to be fed!

At Aunt Shirley's.

Conked out in my mom's arms.

At my Grandma's. I love this picture, my Mom's cousin Regina took it.

Part Three

In her Great Grandma's hands. I love this picture. Hands that held my mom and me just like this.

4 Generations. Thanks to the staff member who took this for us.

This was taken on the way home just sitting in the front seat at a rest area. This is her, "Mom, I'm hungry, feed me already" mean face.

With Uncle Hugh the night before we left.

Part Four

I think I've already mentioned it, but Emma's discovered her hands. It's so funny watching her watch her hands, like they're the most amazing thing ever!

See how happy this bouncy seat makes her? This is one happy kid. She would sit in here and laugh and smile and kick and grab and plain just have fun. Shirley was so nice to let us bring the bouncy seat home - Thank you!

Part Five

These were taken when we visited my Aunt Shirley (Hi Aunt Shirley!!) (as an example, these should be with the one above of me and Emma, or vice versa. Stupid blogger!) For the second picture, I had Emma sitting on this awesome blue bench Shirley has on her porch. I had to hold her up the whole time, of course, although she kept wanting to fall over. The bench is perfect for taking pictures!

Part Six

Emma in the shopping cart at the grocery store. I grabbed the camera because she had her hands up in the air in the funniest pose. Of course she was done with that by the time I took the picture. She hates the sun, and I'm sure was really annoyed that I was taking her picture instead of putting her in the car - away from the sun!

Mom and emma on Hugh's porch. He has this fantastic, huge porch with a fireplace that over looks his beautiful yard and the lake.

Emma snoozing in the bouncy seat Shirley gave us.

And, sitting with her Great Grandma.
