1 month!!!

Where has the time gone? Our Emma is already 1 month old today. Goodness, it seems like her birth day was just the other day, but it also seems like it was such a long time ago.

Emma is our little angel baby. From day 1 she's been the most peaceful and content baby. She only really cries when she needs something or when she's super tired...but really, she's such a dream girl. And the cutest little one!

Things she's done within the past month of life:

*she grunts ALL the funny!
*in the first couple of weeks she would cross her eyes and do the Elvis lip curl just before tooting.
*She puckers her lips up, and makes me want to kiss her all over, cause it's so cute!
*she's got SUCH a strong neck! All the nurses noticed at the hospital, and people will comment whenever they see her about how strong she is. Her legs are super strong too.
*she loves to stretch and we LOVE to see her stretch. SO CUTE
*she sounds like such a girl when she cries. They're cute little kitty cat cries. And she'll make little wimpers that sound like she's talking to us. I only wish I knew what she thinks about.
*she is good with just about anyone. We've had visitors and she behaves well with all of them.

Anyway, to wrap it up, Emma is our little love bug. She's the sweetest angel and we are just so grateful she came into our lives 1 month ago today. I love you Emma bean. :)

Blessing Day

Our little Emma girl was given a name and a blessing yesterday at my old family ward at 9am, by her daddy. What a beautiful day! And she was SO good! I thought for sure she'd cry during the blessing because she took a long nap beforehand...and we thought she'd get her dress all dirty because she was poopy just a half our before as well, but she did wonderfully, and the dress was spotless by the end of the day. She slept during the blessing and was very reverent during sacrament. At one moment I just looked at her and cried. She knew it was a time to be quiet and peaceful, and she was just that the whole time.

My mom made Emma's dress, Jamison's mom gave us Emma's blessing blanket, and I made her little headband. So the whole outfit was really special for us, and I'm so excited to use it for our next little girl. :)

We had family and friends that came to support Emma on her big day, and I am SO grateful they could all make it.

We are loving our Emma bean. Jamison and I can't get enough of her. She smiles ALL the time, and now she's also got the puppy dog lip down so good....breaks my heart to see it, but it also makes me smile cause it's just so darn cute! No picture of it yet, but i'm working on getting it.

Thanks to all who came! We love you all so very much. :) What a happy, sacred, spiritual day for our growing family.
