A Big Week

Emma is 10 months old today and she has had a very big week. As mentioned earlier, she learned to push herself up to a sitting position earlier in the week. Yesterday she got a new tooth in and she started crawling - not super skilled crawling, but she can slowly get to where she wants to go. I am amazed everyday by everything she is learning. She has figured out which of her toys make music and likes to push their buttons so she can dance to the music. She puts her phones up to her ear and says hello into them. She likes to pass toys back and forth with me. She plays peek-a-boo. And occasionally she'll amaze us by saying "thank you".

Well, and one more thing happened this week - I got a job. I will be working three days a week doing computer drafting for a residential design firm in Houston. I start next Tuesday. It was a really hard decision, but I feel that it is the right one for right now at least. Emma will be in good hands and it will help me to start paying back my student loans. Pray for us as we adjust to being apart.

Surprise, Mommy!

Emma has learned to push herself into a sitting position from her stomach. Yesterday when I went in to get her after her nap, I found her sitting up in her crib waiting for me. Today when I went into get her, I found this -
Guess we'll be moving her mattress down to the next notch so she won't fall out of her bed!

Last Weekend

Last weekend Joey's parents came to visit. Emma enjoyed being spoiled by her grandparents. We went to the Rainforest Cafe which she hated. I thought she would like the animals and stuff, but it just scared her. We also went to the Rainforest Pyramid at Moody Gardens and she really enjoyed that even though it was super hot in there. Here are some pictures from inside the Rainforest Pyramid.

Easter Eggs

I got Emma an Easter basket this week and filled it full of eggs. She has been having a blast dumping all the eggs out and then throwing them around. Our cat, Maggie, has been helping her spread them around downstairs. Maggie has played more with Emma's Easter eggs than any other toy she owns!
