First Birthday Party

Emma's First Birthday Party was a success!  The theme was pink and gray with elephants.  She was a happy girl all day and even took quite a few steps throughout the day and she is mastering how to walk!  There were lots of sweets and friends to enjoy the day with us!  Here are some pictures in no particular order...

12 Months ~ 1 Year

 Emma is 1 year old!!!  It has been such a fun year with lots of exciting family adventures!  She is now weighing 24 lbs (94 percentile) and is 31 1/2 (99 percentile) inches long!  Here are a few updates from the last month:  Emma is officially walking!  Every time she walks from one thing to the next she gets the biggest smile on her face and is so proud of herself!  She also now has 12 teeth and is constantly putting everything in her mouth to chew on!  She is still not too verbal, but has added a few more words to her vocabulary and really has mastered the ones she knows!  She has a favorite book called Bubbles, Bubbles and she will find it and hand it to you saying bubba, bubba.  Also, when she sees someone walk into a room she now will give you a big smile and shout HI!  She continues to love waving at anyone and everyone and of course eat!  (You will see this in my next post as she eats her birthday cake!)  Here are some of her 1 year old photos:

Look how much I have grown!

Our House Addition

We decided to add an addition onto the back of our house this summer.  We made our porch into a nice big room for Emma to have lots more room to play! A huge thanks to my parents for putting in lots of hours to make it what it is!!  Here are some pics:

11 Months!

I can't believe I will only be doing my monthly update 1 more time!  Of course I will do updates, just not ones that have Emma in monthly cute onesies!  Next month- first birthday!  
She is getting quite the personality!  She is so close to walking!  She will let go of what she is holding on to and stand independently for a good 10 seconds with a big "I am so proud of myself" grin.  Sam and I will sit across from each other and she will take 1 or 2 steps back in forth.... so we are getting close!  She continues to say mama and dada a lot, and is now attempting to say ball (ba), Lily (lili),  and banana (nana).  She has learned to smile for the camera, as soon as she sees you taking a picture she puts on this cheesy grin.  She has loved watching the Olympics too, as soon as she hears people start cheering she will look at the TV and start clapping.  Her favorite thing do to however is eat!  She eats everything from summer squash to kiwi and gets so mad when it is gone!  Well here are some pics...

Not so sure these are actually attractive... but they sure are funny!!!
