11 Months Old!

11 Months Old!!!
Like my LL Cool pant leg! :)

It's official - 1 month away from our 1st Birthday!!! Emma is getting to be such a big girl. We've been saying for months now that she's so close to walking - and I think this picture shows how close. Yes - that's Emma standing on her own. She can walk a few steps on her own without crashing - but it always ends the same way! Nothing much else going on here - Emma was sick today and slept in till 8:30 - and then immediately fell asleep again on Daddy - then took 2 really long naps after that, which is really unusual since we struggle for her to take one hour long nap a day usually. She seemed to perk up this evening though so we must be okay!

Like my Outfit Grandma Debi! It's been great for this cold weather we've been having!

Emma napping with Daddy this morning - what a cutie!

We can't wait to 2 of our grandmas for our birthday next month!!!

The only update here is that when we got home from Christmas Emma was having a tough time with sleeping and kept screaming for hours when we'd go to put her to bed or down for a nap. Well - problem solved - I just have a high maintenance kid! On Sunday night I put a down blanket under her sheet in her crib - ever since then - not a peep out of her and we're sleeping through the night again! I'm in for trouble if the baby needs a feather bed already!

Happy New Year

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Yes - it's been that long sice I've posted, but now I've got plenty of pictures to share - 152 to be exact! We drove back to Warrensburg, MO on Friday for the annual "Not so Silent Night" party with Zach's friends. Emma was the star of the party and was a champ - even slept in the middle of the party on a dog bed...seemed like the best place for her! (The dog bed was new and I laid a blanket on it so don't freek out or anything!) In a non-baby proof house it's hard to find a place for a 10 month old to sleep, but this worked out perfect! We spent an extra night there to catch up with our friends the Wards and headed to KC on Sunday. We had time with Zach's mom, dad and even stopped for a massage and a trip to see Hil and the kids while in KC. Then on Christmas morning we headed to Iowa to see my family for a few days! On Sunday after Christmas we decided to drive the 12 hour drive straight through - it was a LONG dive but we made it! It was nice to have Monday to get things back to order before heading back to work.

Here's a few photos from our trip!
