Every morning we say good bye to daddy by waving to him in the front window. Daddy waves back while backing out of the driveway. This morning we did the usual routine and I saw daddy stop halfway up the street, and reverse back to our house. I ran onto the steps in my bathrobe and shouted to him "Do you need anything?" His response was that, No - he just wanted to wave to his girl again...

So you can imagine my surprise the other night when I was going through our pictures to update the blog and found these 3 pictures. I was SO confused. My first thoughts were that 1) I had amnesia. Of course - I took these pictures, hit my head and totally forgot I took them OR 2) A robber came into our house, decided to steal our camera, saw how cute Emma was and took a few pictures of her. After taking said pictures, he got so distracted he left without ever stealing our camera.
Here are the excuses we heard yesterday afternoon for getting out of bed:
1. Mommy! You wanna sleep with me?
2. Daddy! There's a monster in my room!
3. Daddy!! I love you! Will you come back!? Followed shortly by - Mommy!! I love you! Will you come back?!
Bed time was the same thing - lots of "I need my milk", "I have to go to the bathroom", or we would walk out in the hallway and see her light on, go into her room and she would be playing in her Rose Petal Cottage. We think she finally fell asleep around 10. We'll see how tonight goes :)

Her crib injury - nothing that a little Boo Boo Bunny couldn't take care of!
Thursday, August 20, 2009
Weight: A little over 11 pounds. I'm going to have to update this when we have her 3 month pedi appointment.
Height: Probably about 24 inches - again, I'll have to update this
Schedule: She usually wakes up around 6 or 7ish to nurse. After that, she's usually asleep until around 10. She's up for about 4 hours or so and takes a 2 hour nap. She's been going to sleep around 9:30ish and is down for about 6 hours and nurses. She's still an awesome sleeper!!!
Recent accomplishments: In the past month, she has continued sleeping through the night every so often and the nights she doesn't sleep through the night, she never fully wakes up. She'll nurse while sleeping then Matt puts her back into her room. I have an amazing husband who helps out SO much during the evenings. He gets her when she cries, brings her to me and I nurse her until she's done, then he brings her back to her room.
Matti and I are both wondering if she's teething...she's been drooling quite a bit, chewing her hands and we think we can see something white on her bottom gums.
The other accomplishment is that she started laughing this month!! It's the best sound in the world!!

Please forgive my complete obsession with the windows! I couldn't help but think the entire time that when I was looking outside at the beautiful view, I was looking through the same windows and had the same views as the owners of the home had many years ago.
