happy 17 weeks emma

First, just a little update on you Emma, you had your 4 month check-up today a little late but Dr. Ling was on vacation last week.  Emma bear your 17 weeks and these are your stats; You are 16LBS 3ounces, so from your 3 month checkup you gained a whole 2LBS, my little porker

 Emma this is what you’ve been up to.  You’ve have grown so much over the couple of weeks!  Joshua and Jace just adore you, you have a sweet personality and we just love to make you laugh. 

Here is what you are doing now;
  • drooling like crazy
  • loves to babble and talk
  • You smile
  • makes the "b" sound sometimes
  • makes the "m" sound sometimes (I am trying to get you to say momma)
  • likes to suck on your fingers...especially your thumb:)
  • you sit up by yourself for a short time
  • you will reach for and grasp for toys when you want too
  • loves your exersaucer
  • still taking cat naps

Emma loves her exersaucer

My sweet Emma bear, well yesterday you were much better, we are on the road to recovery.  YEAH for Emma, mommy and daddy are happy to say that you are feeling much better.  Your feeding every 3 hours, you have lots of dirty wet diapers.  We hope that it continues and that you never catch this bug again.

my sick emma day 2

Fancy Face during the day you are yourself, moving, laughing, giggling, talking and of course feeding very well but when it comes to the night well that’s a different story.  Last night Emma was a little bit better for you; mommy put the saline solution in your nose while daddy held you in his arms to tilt your head back.  That was successful, you sneezed and all that gooing stuff came out.  So again Emma bear we will see what tonight bring us, mommy and daddy hope you feel better soon..

Love Mom

my sick emma

Emma today you are 17 weeks, and last night was a rough one you’ve gone & got yourself some nasty virus, I am not sure what it is right now but  baby you’re SICK, your coughing a little bit, spitting up your feeding and you have a stuffy nose.  Last night daddy slept on the couch because mommy had you on the bed under a raised pillow to making breathing easier for you. 

Emma this really does pull on every chamber of our hearts, & we just want to kiss the sickness out of you. We wanted to tell you, we`d do anything for you, but a part of us thinks you might already know that?

thoughts while watching my Emma sleep

I wonder if it'll be like this forever. I love to watch you sleep. Even if I'm dead tired and should be taking a nap or sleep myself, I can't help to just stare at you.  You has very different ways of sleeping which always bring a smile to face.

moving to our new house!

Emma, the time has finally come for us to move into our new house! It felt like a long process as daddy purchased the house in May 2010, but the builders didn’t start to build till late 2011, so we are so happy to finally be moving in.  You've been sleeping in mommy and daddy`s bedroom, so it’s about time you have your own room.  Mommy and Daddy are so happy to start decorating your room.  Stay tuned for pictures once everything is done.   

Love You baby xoxoxo

ready to go

finally done

whitney houston

dear emma,

You’re probably wondering why I am throwing this on my blog, but when you’re old enough to understand you will see why.  I adore this women and her music, and as I was growing up I listened to her music and one day I will play it for you.  Emma you will fall in love with her voice and her music.

Whitney Elizabeth Houston (August 9, 1963 – February 11, 2012) was an American singer, actress, producer, and model. In 2009, the Guinness World Records cited her as the most-awarded female act of all time.

Whitney Elizabeth Houston

New York – February 12, 2012 – Sony Music Entertainment today issued the following statement regarding Whitney Houston:

“Whitney Houston was an icon and a once-in-a-lifetime talent who inspired a generation of singers and brought joy to millions of fans around the world. She had a voice of unmatched beauty and power that changed music forever, and she leaves behind an indelible legacy of timeless songs that will never be forgotten. She also was an important member of the Sony Music family who spent her storied recording career with Arista Records. She will be greatly missed. Our deepest condolences go out to her daughter and her entire family.”

happy 4 months emma

dear emma

Happy 4 months
Emma you are officially 4 months old today! It's amazing that it's been 4 months. On one hand, I can't believe you’ve only been here for such a short amount of time. It seems like I've known you forever, you’ve become so ingrained with my own identity. On the other hand, there's still a time of every day that I look over at you and think "holy crap, I have a baby! I'm a MOMMY! AGAIN, Woah!" That’s usually followed by a giant smile, and I say "you're my baby!" over and over and you giggle like crazy.

You can really see just how quickly you are growing. 
Your giggle is infectious.  Your giggle makes me giggle and I love it.
You are so strong.  You still can’t roll over, but you hate to be on your tummy anyways so what’s the point of rolling over?  I can carry you on my hip now and you can sit up when you are propped against something.
You know what you want.  You are so deliberate with your movements.  You practice putting your pacifier in and out of your mouth.  You love to play with your toys. 
You poop like a champ.  I’ve had to throw out a lot of onesies because you like to poop out your diaper.
Your little, raspy voice is adorable.  When you wake up in the morning you lay in your crib squirming and making noises.  When I come to get you, you greet me with the biggest smile and giggles.
You are like my little, real life doll.  I love to dress you up. 
You make us so happy.  We love you more than all the stars in the sky.
You are obsessed with your hands. You pray, you suck your fingers; you suck on your thumb. You're adorable.

Emma you’re getting your second round of shots next week. I'm dreading it!

Now that you are 4 months old...I can't believe you're already over 4 months old...I wanted to capture a few of your sweet Emma moments.  Taken with my new camera.

Emma, you smile so infectious

Happy 3 Months Emma
I can't believe Emma is already 3 months. Time really does fly by when you’re having fun! 3 months ago today this little girl came into our lives and has made every day better ever since.  We both just cannot believe how fast she is growing and how much more in love we are with her every day.  She's smiling, laughing, grasping toys, loves to feast on both her hands, makes great eye contact, even believes she can carry a conversation, I love it all.  Happy three months, Emma. I feel so grateful to have you in our lives and so incredibly lucky to be your mama.

I can’t believe that my fancy face is one month old.  Emma you surprised us at what a wonderful, easy-going, precious princess you are.   Right now, your life is simple.  You’re either eating, messing up diapers, sleeping, or awake and just checking out the world around you with your big, brown eyes.  You have spent the first month of your life making sure that we have lots to fall in love with.  And I/we have fallen...HARD.

Joshua and Jace are is enjoying having a little sister around too.  When you cry, Jace is first to inform me THE BABY IS CRYING MAMA!  Joshua runs to you to pick you up and sooth you, you have stolen each of our hearts, we love you Emma.  We have an incredible first month, looking forward to what you bring us daily from here on in… I/We love you Emma.

Happy Halloween Emma
Happy 3 Week Birthday!
Today Emma you are 3 weeks old! I honestly can't believe how fast time is flying by. I feel like we just went to the hospital yesterday and we just brought you home. I guess it flies by during this time because we are giving you our 100% attention. For the past few weeks we have done basically nothing but take care of you. And I wouldn't have it any other way right now.  -I already love you more than I ever thought I could. It's amazing how much love you can have for one person in such a short amount of time. Until you have a child you can't really truly understand what love is.
Emma you already have a ton of nicknames: mamas, peanut, Baby, Sweetie, Sister, Sweetness...we are so weird, but loving you every day more and more.

Happy Halloween Emma

Two weeks ago today we welcomed you Emma Veronica into the world.  What an amazing day it was and what an awesome two weeks it has been.   We are so thankful that you have joined our family.  We had our two week appointment with the doctor on Friday, and everything went great. You are now 8 pounds 11 ounces, over your birth weight.  The Dr. is was also impressed with how alert you are and how your already trying to hold up your own head.

Baby Girl,  I cannot believe you are already one whole week old. You are such a peanut.... a much loved peanut. Daddy & I love you so much! Your big brothers love to look at you.  I think they are anxious for you to get bigger so that you 3 can play together and get into trouble with one another :) You have made our family complete. You are such a great baby. You eat like a champ, my little porker.  You are our petite little lover girl. Daddy & I love showing you off.  I catch myself smothering you in kisses, and staring at you all day, watching you when you sleep.  It is so neat to see the differences between you, Joshua and Jace.  I feel so blessed to have two boys and one girl.  Happy 1 week birthday, sweet pea. It is hard to believe that only 1 week ago, we were just meeting for the 1st time. I will never forget that moment when I saw you - pure joy. You make Daddy, Joshua, Jace and me so happy. I love you, we love you.

Love Mommy

Happy 1 Week old Emma
