Venturing Out

Well, today was Emma's first day to stay all day with someone other than me or Joey. Joey had been home with her on Tuesdays while I had class, but he started back to school on Monday. Thankfully, one of our good friends -Kimberly- can watch her at least for a few Tuesdays. We were so glad to find someone we 100% trust; it makes it so much easier. Although I'm not going to lie - I did cry when I left this morning. I seriously contemplated staying home, but I figured that I had to leave her at some point...so Joey pushed me out the door and I made it to school somehow. Anyway, Kimberly was nice enough to email me this picture of Emma during the day. I think next week will be a little bit easier - hopefully. But, seriously, who could part with those chubby cheeks for very long? 8 hours is way too long to go without squeezing that precious baby!

I've gotten into the habit of pulling Emma into bed with me in the mornings and snuggling with her before we get up. It is my favorite part of the day! This morning Boo got to snuggle with her a little bit too.

After the morning snuggle was over, we got her all dressed up and took her to church. Today I left her in the nursery for the second time. It was still just as hard as the first time. I hear it gets easier with time; I hope that's true!

Learning to play

Emma is learning how to play with toys. Which basically just means that she can grab them and shake them around and kind of giggle at herself. She probably has no idea what she is doing, but it is totally cute to watch.

She also totally loves her leap frog learning seat. (Thanks to the Drapers for getting us this!) She loves the animals that hang down from it. She bats at them, grabs them, talks to them, and laughs at them. We call them her friends. I highly recommend this chair if you have a young baby!
