Miss Emmy Mae is already two months old! I can’t believe how fast time is flying by. She had her two months visit today and we suffered through two more shots. That was harder for me than her, I’m sure. Something about seeing her chubby little thighs being injected and her tiny little face all tear-filled and crying… breaks my heart! BUT, evidence based medicine wins out on this one.
The past month has been one of fun and learning for this little one. Her personality is shining through and getting brighter every single day! She makes me laugh so much. I am loving being her mom a little more every second. This month she learned how to cry and get her way (already!). She also has been doing great with tummy time and holding her head up a little longer on her own. The BEST thing that happened this month…. her bright smile every time she sees me enter a room! The Lord really knew what he was doing with that one. There’s nothing like seeing your baby so happy to see you! I have also enjoyed seeing her fascination with watching me talk. She stares at my mouth as I talk to her about any and everything… and then she tries to get a little response out. It is adorable! She twists her tongue and contorts her mouth like she is trying so hard to say something back. She can usually muster up a little “ahh” in response.
Also this month Miss Emmy went to college for the first time! Well, in person, anyway. She finally met all of my classmates at our clinical seminar day. It was so exciting! She stared at several of them as if to say, “something seems familiar about you…” and I really believe she recognized their voices. It was such an exciting day for the both of us. Everyone seemed so happy to meet her and just doted on her all day long. It was so sweet :)

Dislikes: We aren’t a huge fan of tummy time, but it’s getting better every day!
Clockwise from top left: Our bar sink is now “stocked” with breastfeeding supplies instead of alcohol, my adorable Gerber baby with her dried milk chin and ridiculously beautiful eyes, Emmy waving hello in her sweet cupcake sleeper, and finally the pouty lip of all pouty lips…this girl is going to be spoiled ROTTEN!
Clockwise from top left: Getting ready to go to cousin Dane’s birthday party, Emmy sound asleep on her favorite spot: Granddaddy, Emmy at her first church service watching cousin Wilder sing Silent Night, and finally.. mommy and daddy got to get all dressed up for a night out at the Law Ball!
Clockwise from top left: An outtake with Granddaddy trying to make her smile, getting SO good at holding her head up!, at today’s visit just before her shots (:(), and finally…my girl has a big head. And that’s not surprising given how big her daddy’s head is. ;)
Merry Christmas! Love,
