Emma is now one year old, i can't believe it! She turned on Friday January 27, 2012. Emma is such a cute, fun, squishy little girl! She says a few words (hi, bye, mama, dada, uh oh, etc), loves to eat (chicken nuggets, fruits, toast, actually there isn't much that she doesn't like), can wave bye bye and "roll it" during patty cake, loves her mama, and thinks blake is the coolest. She loves to wrestle blake and her dad, climb on everything she can, and gets just as excited as we do when she accomplishes something new. Emma loves to swing, and help mom in the kitchen (pull out all the tupperware), and she is an excellent sleeper, but i think her favorite time of the day is bed time when tanner and i read books and sing songs to them to help them fall asleep. Emma just keeps handing us book after book and wants us to keep reading. She is just starting to walk everywhere and is such a good girl, whenever she starts crawling, tanner and i will say, "emma, get up and walk!" and she does it every time. First she will smile then stand up and start walking like she is thinking 'oh yea i forgot i can walk!'. I can't believe how much she already understands. Tanner and I always call her our ‘little rolly polly’ because she is so easy going and loves when we get down and play with her. We call her “miss emma”, “emma bemma” , “emma doo”
Blake also loves his little sister, Emma. He has grown up so much since she has come into the family by being more independent and helpful. When i ask him to help her or play with her, he does. I feel like he has become more confident in himself and loves to have someone around all day to play with him.
Emma has been a wonderful addition and blessing to our family this year.
Emma's birthday was on friday and tanner didn't get back from school untill 6pm. That night we went to dinner then to the mall to get emma's birthday gifts! The next day we had a little party with a few friends with pizza, cake, ice cream, bubbles, balloons, and lots of fun!!!.
Emma having fun at her party!!!
Very happy to get her chocolate cake! she didn't go too crazy with it just took a few bits then she was done. i think she was too excited to stop and eat.
I made emma a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting from scratch! It was so yummy! Emma wasn't sure what to do about the candle so we had to help her blow it out.
This is the only picture i got of all the kids. They had lots of fun playing with the bubble machine
