My Sweet Emma

There has been so many changes that this little girl has been put through in the past 2 months. Leaving Hawaii and moving with my parents in Ohio for over a month. Then picking up and moving to our new home in West Virginia. Also having to learn patients while mommy and daddy slowly put our house in somewhat a livable condition.  
It sure is hard to get anything done with this little monkey around. 
So as of now we are in the process of getting our-self back on somewhat of a schedule...only to be ruined in upcoming months due to another trip out of town. 

Emma is such at a amazing age (16 months). Her personality is huge and I cant get enough of it. She smiles and waves at every person that walks by. Its amazing how many people want to stop and talk to us. She lures them in and soaks up all of the attention. 

We have been learning so many new things. She loves to look at her books and point to pictures. She is learning names and  noises that animals make. I will say it and then she copies.  Ill tell her to get her shoes and she will bring them, say 'shoes' and sit down for me to put them on. There are so many words that she knows now that I cant even write them all down  

Emma is getting better at eating finally. I am learning that she is pretty picky with food though, which I assume that most kids are. All she wants to eat is the meat. No carbs, veggies or fruits...just meat. 
When eating yogurt, cottage cheese or anything that has to use a utensil, she likes to hold it herself. I am only allowed to hold the end part of the spoon.  

I am in the process of finding a new Dr. for her. I know absolutely no one here so I am depending on Yelp reviews. :(  
I am eager to find out her weight. She is still really tiny for her age but I can tell she has gained a good amount since the last time she was weighed. 

She brings me her diapers and wipes when it is time to change her, then throws the old one in the trash afterwards.

She likes to walk around the house on her tip toes. 
 During bed/nap time she has gotten in the habit of wanting to hold my hand in till she falls asleep. She has a death grip on me in till I feel her relax, then I try my best to slowly loosen the hold.
Also, we have move into a house that has no carpet. I have a big rug in Emma's but the squeaky hardwood floor has made sleepy time challenging for me. She is a light sleeper so I have to ninja out of her room.
 Being a newborn baby is such a sweet time but the age Emma is at now has been so much fun. I wake up each morning excited to see what she will do that day.


  1. She's too cute. Have you seen the Story of My Life videos that are going around facebook (also a website). I think it was them that did a ninja movie on how to get out of the sleeping babies room. X marks the spot on where to step...

  2. She is so cute. What a great age!

  3. She always looks so happy! I love it! :)
