How time flys...

We have had a very busy couple of weeks since my last post! Emerson got her ears pierced, celebrated her first 4th of July, went on her first mini-vacation and started crawling and pulling up...! Whew...! Like I said..BUSY!

Emerson, before the piercing!
This is Emerson and Mommy having second, third and forth thoughts about this crazy idea!

It felt like a very bad idea at this point...

All smiles again! That wasn't so bad after all!

Emerson's first 4th of July!!

Emerson had 4 different outfits for the Holiday, but this one was my favorite!

Emerson, Jimmy and I went on a mini-vacation to the Lake of the Ozarks in July. Emerson loved the water and we got to spend some special time together while daddy was at his conferences.

Emerson loved playing on the floor at the Lodge and had a wonderful view. Obviously, the lake air didn't do any favors for her hair :) :)
Emerson and I spent a lot of time at the pool on our little vacation. She LOVED the water and I loved watching her enjoy this new activity!

We even had time for a quick game of hide and seek! Truth be told, she was attemping to crawl and got herself backed into a corner. She wasn't really very happy...

The happy family! Emerson wouldn't sleep in her own bed on our trip so three was company! We had a wonderful time and look forward to many more family vacations!

Life is so good...!

Jimmy celebrated his first Father's Day this year and it was wonderful! Emme of course tried to steal the show! She is a TOTAL ham...she can be in a total mood and when she sees the red light on the camera, she starts smiling on cue! That is what my dad and Jimmy are laughing at in the picture below!

Smiling with her Daddy on Father's Day!
We think she will be crawling soon! Little baby push ups!

Here is Emme sitting in her big girl chair eating (well trying at least!) oatmeal, her current favorite!

All smiles in her high chair!

She sat up by herself on this day so of course, I took about 50 pictures...!

Emerson getting some love from her Mommy and Daddy!

Life is good...Emerson is our life! She changes everyday and we are excited by every movement, glance and sound she makes. We can not get enough of our sweet girl. We love her so much and are so proud to be her parents. What a gift she is..!

The happy, fun days of Summer!

These past few weeks have been a whirl wind! We have a lot to share with our family and friends about little Miss Emme's adventures! She has started sitting up with help but will remain sitting by herself without us holding on to her. She is still a bit unsteady but she is getting there! I can't remember if I posted last time that she is very clearly saying "da da"! Talk about proud! Her daddy was (and still is!) floating on cloud 9! She occassionally says "ma ma" but just this week started saying it more regularly. It melts me EVERY time!!

We have been very lucky to have had visits from many different people in the last few weeks! We love having company and sharing our sweet angel with others! Below are a few snapshots with our recent company!

Emerson and her friend Kaylyn. They (okay I..) have been wanting for quite sometime to get pictures of them in matching outfits! So cute these two...!

Here they are again. They were very good little girls as their parents took a million photos of them!

We also had a very special visit from Emerson's Uncle Josh! This is the first time she has every gotten to meet him so she was very excited..Pay no attention to the "deer in the headlights" look..!

Lastly, we had 2 very special visitors this past weekend. Emerson's cousins Jerry and Patsy came to visit from California. We all had a great time! It is always fun to hear their stories and to get to see them. Emerson was amazed to find out that they have as much energy as she does!

Here is the whole group!

I will post more later! It says I have met my upload quota for this posting...More to come!

More pictures!

I wanted to post more pictures the other night but my computer wouldn't be agreeable! Here are some more updated pictures!

The happy family on Mother's Day!

Emerson and her Grandma Hall on Mother's Day!

Emerson and her Grandma Worthington on Mother's Day!

Emerson's First Royals Game! You can tell she is beyond amused. She got a Build a Bear Lion while we were there. She was very excited about that!

A very proud Daddy! Jimmy was excited to experience this with Emerson. Going to the game with Daddy will be a tradition they will love!

Emerson and I being pozers in front of the fountains in outfield! So fun!

She had to sport a pink ball cap and bib so no one cofused her with a boy ;)

I had to get a picture of the Jumbo-Tron. Jimmy laughed at me and said I had been watching to much of the Transformer movies because I kept calling it the Mega-Tron. Jumbo...Mega? Very close I think.... :)

Emerson lasted longer than we thought she would at the game. She made it to the 4th inning before she crashed out. We were very happy about that!

So much to blog, so little time....

I have so many pictures to share since the last time I was able to post. I celebrated my first Mother's Day this year which was so fun. We celebrated at Kaye's house with all of our family and some friends. Here are a few pictures from the perfect day!

Sweet Angel!

I found the sweetest onesie this weekend at Wild Child! It says "Sweet Angel" on it, which is exactly what I call Emerson. I also found a hat that matched of course ;)

Spring has Sprung!

We are enjoying yet another season with Miss Emerson. She loves to be outside and really enjoys the time we have spent outdoors. Today, I took her out in front of the house to get these pictures with the beautiful tulips that have popped up.

This year was also Emerson's first shot at going to the Military Ball that Wentworth hosts. I got her all ready to go complete with her fancy dress, shoes and pig tails. She was looking pretty sharp! I had a dress to match hers and even Daddy bought a pink shirt so we would all coordinate! We went to dinner with some friends and part way through, she decided this was NOT her thing. Jimmy had to pack her up and take her to Grandma Kaye's house so we could eat dinner and go to the Ball. So, she didn't actually make it to the big event, but we got some good pictures none the less!

Emerson "chillin" in her Bumbo seat...Not real sure if she likes it or not....!

Another Happy Holiday...!

Emerson with her Grand Dad

This was Emerson's first Easter and we did it up right! She had a fancy Easter dress complete with matching coat and bonnet. She was really cute and slept like an angel at church. She really loves the music!

We followed church up with another outfit change (of course)! She received many stuffed animals in her Easter Basket along with several books and even a little bit of candy ;)

It was a wonderful day spent with family. Emerson is amazing and really makes the holidays a little bit sweeter!

Easter Basket or No Easter Basket....THAT is the question..!

We took Emerson to see the Easter Bunny for the first time on Tuesday evening. He was making his appearence at the Independence Center. It was also her first visit to the mall which was pretty exciting for me too! She was very patient in line but by the time it was her turn to sit on the cotton tail's lap, she was going to have NONE of it....
You want me to do what?! Sit on who's lap?!

Not making nice with the Easter Bunny....

Hopefully, we will make a better impression next year! ;)

It has been awhile since I have had time to post some new pictures on the blog...I have been really busy...I always have time to take pictures of Emerson though!
She is 4 months old today! Where does time go?
She is wearing a hat that says "Cutie"! No false advertizing here!

Bright eyed and totally adorable!

She is sporting her first pig tails!

Playing with her friend Drew! His Daddy is Jimmy's best friend.
