2 months old

You're two months old Emma Kate!  Your favorite activities include eating, pooping, smiling, blowing bubbles, hitting the elephant toys on your bouncy chair, dancing with mommy in the kitchen, looking in mirrors, and still staring at fans :) You have become so alert and responsive and it's really fun to watch you discover new things. You now weigh a whopping 10 lbs. 9 oz and you are 21 and 3/4 inches long. You are a happy camper in the mornings and you show us your wide and passionate range of emotions in the late afternoons :)  Excited to see what growth and changes your month ahead brings!

laying low

I haven't written in a while, so I thought I'd drop in and say hi.  Since it's snowing out, Emma Kate and I are laying low today and having fun at home.  My "if I get free time" goals include write a blog post (check!), order birth announcements, finish the wreath I started last year, and maybe order some baby leggings online :) Oh, and I should add shower and brush my teeth to that list!

Last night was my work Christmas Party, tonight is a friends Birthday party and tomorrow is Adam's work party. Don't we sound like such the socialites?  Actually Emma Kate is the real socialite! We don't stay very long but she loves seeing new people and falling asleep to the murmur of people talking.

Now that Emma Kate is more alert and responsive, we are finding new ways to entertain her. Her new favorites are lots of kisses from mom and dad in the mornings, spinning ceiling fans, and her owl toy who she loves to look at and coo at.  Here's some recent pics for your viewing pleasure :)
