Emmedid turn TWO months.

TWO months?! No way. 
Yes way. 
It's already hard to imagine what our life was like before this little angel arrived. 
Eight week photo shoot. 
 Adorable baby yawns. 
Two month photo shoot.
 These photos capture your cute little personality perfectly. 
 Good golly, I love you. 
 I melt. 
 Two month appointment. 
We were ready for your appointment a little early, so Mommy took some pictures.
That never happens!
I kid, I kid. 
So stinkin' sweet, 
 Daddy was out of town, so Glamma accompanied us to this not so fun doctor visit.
She's the best! And we treated her to lunch at Panera Bread.
You were a sleepy little sweetheart at lunch.
Once we got to the doctors office, I think you knew the shots were coming! 
But, having the best nurse ever made it a wee bit easier.
 You love your Glamma.
You weighed 11 lbs and 2 oz and were 23 inches long. 
Praise the Lord for a healthy, perfect little you!
Mommy loving on you after your shots. 
Glamma had bottle duty. 
I gave you Tylenol before your appointment just to make things a little less painful. 
As you can see, the shots did not phase you one bit. 
You slept the entire time during our after appointment shopping trips. 
Look at these poor little leggies. 
You felt a little feverish that evening. But, you were acting and eating as usual so Mommy didn't take your temperature.
She knew if she did she would worry way to much about nothing. 
The less you know, sometimes the better!

Emmedid grow. 
-You change everyday, little Emme. You make different faces, squeaks, and sounds. I just watch and listen in pure amazement. 
-You have a sweet and laid back demeanor. Daddy even started calling you "Easy E" at my graduation because you are always just as pleasant as can be. We joke because that nickname can only last until you are about 7 or so. After that, being "easy" isn't such a good thing. Ha. 
-You are getting so strong! You have great head control and wiggle all around on your play mat. You have even started to gain strength in your legs and can support your weight when standing with assistance.
-You have started knocking your paci out of your mouth and inserting your hands. We play a little game that goes something like this: Paci out of mouth, hands in mouth, Mommy puts paci back in mouth, and then repeat. 
-You are now in 3 month old clothes. All the newborn things are packed up and out of your closet. 
-You have started liking baths! Wahoo. We have a pretty good wash and dry system down and I think that helps. The first bath you didn't cry during was when Mommy was bathing you alone while Daddy was out of town. Just sayin!
-You are really starting to dig hanging out on your playmat. We "play" frequently throughout the day.
-We have switched you to the Playtex VentAire bottles because Dr. Brown's made you extremely gassy. You don't get bottle fed a lot, but when you did it was not fun. We are a big fan of these new bottles. 
-You dream a lot and make the cutest faces when doing so. I would love to know what these dreams are about!
-Mommy has started reading a lot of books to you lately because you are more alert. She read "Love You Forever" the other day and couldn't even finish the book because she was crying way too hard...
It rings all too true for your Mommy!
"I'll Love you forever, 
I'll like you for always, 
As long as I'm living my baby you'll be."

Emmedid get it from her Momma.

While you did get 90 percent of your cute baby looks from your Daddy...

You did inherit a few small traits from your Momma. 
1. You love to vacuum like your Momma.
Here you are perfectly content in the Bjorn. 
Daddy got back from golfing and caught us in action. 
I even said in this post that you would be soothed by the sound of a vacuum cleaner because I am constantly vacuuming.  
Here is the proof that I was right. 

  2. You sleep like your Momma. 
With your mouth open for the world to see. 
It's way cuter on you!
Trust me. 

3. When you get mad... You really get MAD, just like your Momma. 
Daddy always says that I am calm, cool, collected, and keep everything in until one little thing sets me off. 
Well sister, you do the same. 

Momma is having so much fun learning all about you, sweet baby!

Katiedid Mother's Day 2012.

Mother's Day is my new favorite holiday. 
It's like a birthday because you get recognized all day and showered with sweet gifts.   
You also get to spend the day with all the other amazing women in your life. 
And to top it off, you are celebrating the lives of the most precious little people who made you a Mom.

I love my little lady more than I can put into words. 
Truthfully, I teared up all day just looking at her. 
Being her Mommy is a total treat! 
My Mother's Day weekend included all of my favorite activities! 
Saturday mid-day family jog. 
Saturday afternoon mani-pedi. 
Saturday night family sushi date. 
Our attempt at a family picture. 
 We tried out a new sushi place close to our neighborhood. 
It was fantastic!
And our little nugget was a perfect angel the entire time. 
My favorite man. 
 Glamma and Papa unexpectedly walked in just as we were about to leave! 
The one night we didn't talk about our dinner plans, we would pick the same restaurant. Ha!
They joined us in our booth and we helped the beginner sushi eaters order. 
Such a fun impromptu dinner date.
 Sunday morning I walked out of the shower and found this...
 My sweet sidekick and shopping partner got me a gift card to one of our favorite spots!
 And this necklace with Emme's initials is on its way!
My husbands drawing makes me smile. 
 We then headed to Mother's Day mass. 
It also was Emme's first trip to church.
Such a sweet day to share!
 Sweet baby never made a peep. 
{She rarely does!}
 After church we went to brunch at a Mexican restaurant and then headed over to Glamma and Papa's for the afternoon. 
It was a gorgeous afternoon so I took out the Canon Rebel for a little Mother's Day photography fun. 
{Here comes picture overload...}
 Sweet baby feet. 
 A little smile session. 
 Little Miss loves her hands. 
Glamma can't get enough of this girl. 

Mommy and baby Emme. 
Three girls. 
My favorite faces. 
That evening we went over to Aunt Tricia's for a family dinner.
I got our Mom's these photo gifts from Shutterfly.
The iPhone case was a total HIT.
Glamma is requesting a new and updated one every 3 months! 
I absolutely loved celebrating being a Mom and celebrating the best Mom I know!
