The Hokey Pokey

The Hokey Pokey is one of Emma's favorite games.  She loves the arm movements the most.

The Many Faces of Emma

Emma is very expressive when she sleeps.  Here's a little taste of what you might see when she starts to wake up from a nap:

Sleeping peacefully...


Starting to wake up...


Making sure there is something worth waking up for...


Maybe waking up wasn't such a good idea...


Almost there...


Success!!

Flying Lessons

Emma turned her tummy time into a flying lesson yesterday.  It is usually a struggle to get her to spend time on her tummy, so I place a rolled up blanket under her arms to help lift her up a bit.  I was pretty amused when she pushed herself onto the blanket and lifted her legs straight up in the air.  She's so strong- she'll be crawling before I know it!

Mother's Day and One Month Checkup

I was so excited to celebrate my first Mother's Day this year.  I went out to a great lunch with my mom, Tonia and Kimi.  In the afternoon, we visited Andy's parents.  Emma (and Andy) bought me a beautiful diamond necklace for Mother's Day.  Emma has great taste.  

Today was Emma's one month checkup.  She weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz. and measured 20 1/4 inches.  The doctor said everything looked great and that she was very healthy.  It's hard to believe that she's already a month old.  She's holding her head up really well and is starting to make different noises to "talk" to us.  She knows our voices and will start to smile when she hears us.  She has found her tongue and LOVES to stick it out all the time.  We are looking forward to hearing her first giggle!
