It's about time!

It has been over a month since I blogged last. Whew! That's crazy! All I can say is I have been busy chasing around my 16 month old and sick and exhausted due to the pregnancy. I honestly don't have anything really exciting to blog about right now (and not many pictures), but thought I'd just give an update on what Emma is up to these days.

*Emma's verbal skills have really taken off lately. I can't even count the words in her vocabulary. She is very into labeling things these days. She walks around with objects saying who they belong to and what they are.

*Emma loves animals! Her favorite animals are giraffes, monkeys, lizards, ducks, and dogs. She loves to go outside and look for "didards" (lizards) and gets so excited when she sees one.

*Emma loves music. She loves to dance and sing. Her favorite songs are "Row, Row, Row Your Boat", "Wheels on the Bus", and "If You're Happy and You Know It".

*Emma loves her friends in the nursery at work. She can say all of their names and gives them hugs and kisses all the time.

*Emma's favorite foods are blueberries, green beans, and cheese.

*Emma has an obsession with shoes (and really always has).

*Emma's favorite toys are baby dolls, her baby doll stroller, puzzles, and books.

*Emma insists on having a "bow" (clip, rubberband, or bow) in her hair at all times. As soon as she wakes up, she says "bow" and wants us to put her hair up. We have to leave her hair up until right before we lay her down to bed. Her hair has gotten long and she definitely doesn't like it in her eyes!

That's our busy girl for ya!

I only have two to share. I'll try to do better!

Here is Emma with her first pigtails!

This is Emma and her friend, Lucas, who we were watching for the day.

Much love (and many prayers) to all,
