So Emerson had her 2 month well baby....she is 11 lbs. 14oz. and 25in.(my tall skinny baby takes after her daddy).That puts her in the 75th percentile for weight and 90th for height. She also had her shots...all's I could do was say sorry 4 million times..but she did well...screamed loud for just a second until I was able to pick her up...then she thankfully was all better. Poor little lady. Well as far as her eye is concerned it is definitely better, I found this massage to do just to help open the duct, and it more goop in her eye. Google is better that the Dr. sometimes. Our little girl is getting so big! I LOVE MY BUG, and that is all.

Some bunny loves you!

Emerson was a busy little bunny yesterday and just about spent the whole day outside with us...she loves to be outside. I made sure I got some great easter shots of her with her bunny ears and flower head..she hated being the flower...I got maybe 2 good shots....but thats all I really need..She is going to hate me when she grows up,I can't help myself..I love her pictures and don't want to miss anything or forget any memories so my camera is always in her face! HAPPY EASTER from Emmy!

Em's Saturday

I have the happiest little girl in my life. She wakes up all smiley and cute..smirks in the middle of eating..giggles during bath time..hoots when on car rides...She just loves everything(well sometimes not bedtime)..She is all smiles, even with a milk beard!
She is talking to us more everyday. I am really gunning for her first word to be mama...that would be awesome.
She is also starting to really focus on things, even if it makes her cross in her bouncer, she gets so serious about that the little elephant. He gets her every time.
She kicks up a storm and flails about frantically too..
When she is pleased she now raises her eyebrows in approval.
She is realizing she has hands and fingers...I can't wait till those fingers find her feet!
I have some picture ideas in the works for spring and easter...I can't wait to take them, although she may grow up and hate me for them one day...OH WELL!

So Emmy has this issue with her eye...she has a clogged tear duct, which sounds completely opposite of whats wrong with her. Her right eye since birth has had the ability to produce tears...usually babies can't do that for a few months. Well that eye drains and drains....leaving her with eye matter all the time. When she wakes up from her naps her eye is so crusty she sometimes can't even open it. I feel horible just looking at her. They gave me medicine which is not helping..and I have rubbed her eye practically raw with a warm I did my own research..And found this massage I can do to open the duct. I have been doing it all week and it seems to have worked. Thank goodness! I felt horrible wiping her eye out every 10 minutes making it all red and swollen..but I couldn't have left her eye gooped shut. Her appt is Friday so we will definitely see what they say about it. Anyways my sister should be here this next weekend for her birthday. I am excited for her to see Em's and how much she has grown in the last month. As much as I don't want her to grow up...I love seeing her do new things. I am really ready for our couple friends to get back from their Italy vacation! I need some socialization for sure :) I will leave you with a super happy photo from me and Em taken yesterday!

Sunday is NOT funday!

My cable box died and no repair folks will be out till monday.....can we say BOOORING?! I was trying to order new moon on demand last night.. As my husband was saying NOOOOOOO please..I pressed order now. Then the box went black. No lights..sound.nada. What garbage...but he felt so bad that he jinxed it that he got up this morning to get lunch for us ..and how much do you want to bet he is stopping by blockbuster to see about renting it.....but thinks I don't know it. My sweet boy...he is my favorite! So here is a picture of little bunny Lou-Lou.
Enjoy :)

I confess

I confess that I am not working out as much as I should be to get rid of this shelf my c-section has created on my lower abdomen.

I love being a mom and always knew I would...So I have never complained about doing anything associated with taking care of Em.

I ate a nutty buddy bar for breakfast....*gasp*

I hate only getting to be a mommy when I am at home. When I go out everyone wants to hold her non-stop, and bc I live with her I feel like I have to let them.

Should be totally grateful my mother in law watches her for 2 hours till Shane gets home from work, but I secretly wish someone else could do it.

I hate my cat now that I have a baby and feel really guilty about it since he is suuuuuch a sweet little guy!

That I have baby fever and as much as I dont want to miss any of Emmys baby years...I wouldnt be totally mad if I got pregnant again immediately.(uh-oh Shane-sorry!)

I am jealous that I pay $30 a week on a can of formula and the girls at work who live with their babies daddies get it for free.

I hope my friends that are pregnant don't have girls....that way I dont have to let them borrow Em's clothes.

Awh man... it feels good to get that out too. I have kind of just been hanging on to a few things that were making me frustrated and I didn't even realize it. I feel so guilty even typing some of the things out! But now that I have owned up to it maybe I can let it go!

Professional Photos

So I was going to get maternity pictures and never got around to it. I certainly wish now that I actually did. My poor stomach will never be the same...I LOVE MY GIRL to pieces but I definitly dont love what she has done to my body! But anyways I just knew I couldn't not get professional pics of my lou. Soo we were just a little late for newborn pics with the naked sleepy baby in crazy positions with weird stuff on her head and so we just have these. I think its perfect b.c I can see her pretty eyes and we caught her smirking and making bubbles...beat that newborns! I love all her pics and thank Nadean at Geneho photography in Myrtle Beach for being so awesome. JC Penny's just wouldn't cut it. I can't wait till her 6 month wait yes I can..I don't want her to grow up!

My happy little girl... I love her new ability to smile on purpose! check out her video but ignore my annoying baby talk if your volume is up. Sorry about don't realize how ridiculous you sound until you hear yourself played back. No wonder she's laughing.

Roadtrip Pictures

Roadtrip!!! Your just a month old and you have travelled more than some people have in their whole life :0

Could you be the most beautiful girl in the world?!

I think I have one of the most gorgeous girls ever! I can't help but take 5 million pictures of her everyday :) and even the "ugly" ones I can't brring myself to delete. My digital camera is on overload. I think it also has something to do with the fact that I only have a handful of baby pictures to enjoy. I want her to be able to look back and say oh thats what I looked like the first time I actually held a toy...and oh grandpa bought my first present at a museum, and it was a dinosaur! I want her to know for certain where she came from and what she has done. I am so ready and excited to show her the world. Helps you realize how awesome life many things in life are worth experiencing..and how great it is to share life's first's with someone you love more than anything.
I look forward to all the joys in my future with my husband, and daughter.

Happy 1 Month

I can't believe I have a 1 month old.. it seems like yesterday we got home from the hospital. Well I guess it kind of was almost yesterday. I couldn't imagine not having the experience of being a mother. I love every second, and I still can't remind myself enough that I have a amazing it really is. I don't want to miss anything..not a new sound, smile, or skill. I have informed all who will be around her when I am not that if she does something for the first time, just don't tell me! I am not joking either.
Anyways..Emmy Lou has been having a wonderful time in Florida. I wish it was a little warmer though. We will be heading back to NC soon :)

First V-day

Happy 1st Valentines Day Emmy!
We spend the week in Florida visiting her aunt. So that is where we celebrated.
