Eight Months!

Emma turned 8 months on Sunday! I can't believe it - it has gone by so fast! She seems to be doing something new everyday. She can stand for little bits at a time by herself holding on to things. (We stand her up-she doesn't pull up yet.) She claps her hands when we say "yay!" She dances to music and she can even say ma-ma! She loves to laugh at Boo (our dog) and she has got the cutest laugh I've EVER heard. She had to go to the doctor today for a follow up visit (she had bronchitis a couple of weeks ago), so I got to find out her 8 month stats. She weighs 18 lbs 3 oz and is 27 inches long. Here are a couple of pictures of her from this week. The first one is in the middle of a clapping session and the second one is her practicing standing up in her crib.

Cousins in Baton Rouge

The weekend before last, we went to visit Joey's family in Baton Rouge. Emma got to spend some time with her cousins. Joey and I brought the girls some blocks to build stuff with - we ended up building stuff so that they could knock it down all weekend which they seemed to enjoy.

Emma enjoyed riding this horsey that was too small for her cousins...although once they saw her on it - they wanted to ride too!

Joey entertained the girls by wearing a tiny hat - what a goof ball!

Emma really enjoyed playing in the ball pit that my mother in law has at her house for the girls.

Baby's First New Year's Eve

We had a fun New Year's Eve this year! We went with some friends to Galveston and ate a nice dinner and then went to Moody Gardens to see the Festival of Lights. Emma enjoyed looking at the lights, but she got tired by then end. We came back home and stayed up playing board games. Yes, that is right, we made it all the way to midnight! Just cause we have a baby does not mean we are old fogies yet!
We are excited about 2008 and all of the firsts it is going to bring for Emma and for us!

Baby's First Christmas

Emma had a great first Christmas. She opened her presents from mommy and daddy here in Texas on the 22nd (mommy and daddy's anniversary!) and then we went to Arkansas on the 23rd. We celebrated in Camden first with my family and then went to Little Rock to Joey's grandparents house. Emma had fun being spoiled by all her relatives, but she really had no idea what to do with the presents! Here are some cute pictures of her that my sister took while we were in Camden.
