Rocking her Jeans!

Cooler weather means time for warmer clothes...Emma Kate's first jean debut!  I didn't buy many clothes while I was pregnant because I didn't know how big she would be, plus people love to buy baby girl clothes for you! I did buy her these jeans with a zebra stripe running down the side before she was born because I simply couldn't help myself.  Everything is so long on her that I had to roll them up!! Enjoy :)

Rice Cereal Time!

Last week, we started feeding Emma Kate rice cereal from a spoon. I had one of those "sappy mom" moments while putting the bib on her and realizing that this milestone is just one of so many more to come.  My princess baby is getting bigger!
We got her all set up in her bib, sat her in the bumbo, and gave it a whirl.  Emma did so well.  She took to the spoon like she had been doing it her while life!  She did get fussy at the end probably because she was tired or didn't like the delay in time it takes to get one bite to the next. I've been making the rice cereal thicker as the week went on and we're going to give oatmeal a try next.  Here are some pics from her first feeding.

Lily's 1st Birthday!!

Last weekend, we packed up the car & headed up to Rogers, Arkansas for Lily's, Emma Kate's closest cousin in age, first birthday.  It was ironic because last year we went up to Arkansas a week before Angela was going to have Lily & we announced to Brett's family that we were expecting!  So as Angela was nearing the finishline to her pregnancy, I was just beginning!  We all thought it would be fun for Lily & our baby-to-be to be so close in age since the other cousins are a bit older. 
We had a great weekend celebrating Lily's 1st birthday and spending time with family.  Emma Kate did wonderful the whole weekend!

4 Month Checkup

Brett & I took Emma Kate to her 4 month checkup almost 2 weeks ago.  Emma smiled at everyone.  She got weighed, measured, and all checked out by Dr. Leon.  She said Emma Kate looked great! At the end, she had to get 4 shots.  She didn't cry as hard as her 2 month shots.  Luckily, for us she handled them well too.  Not too fussy afterwards!

4 month stats:
Weight: 12.13 pounds  (50%)
Length: 23 3/4 inches   (25%)
Head: 16 1/2 inches     (75%)
