This week has been a good one! In the last few weeks, we have gotten really involved in a little "mommy and me play group" and it has been a blast! We are enjoying being "busy" and meeting new friends.
The beginning of the week was full of chilly days and rain. We were cooped up in the house on Sunday and Monday and little missy was so anxious to get outside and play. She absolutely loves being outside and will go and get my tennis shoes and bring them to me. I think she has associated those shoes with going on a wagon walk. It's so cute! I'll also tell her to go get her shoes and she waddles off to find them. She usually brings back just one shoe, but hey, that's halfway there. Haha!
Emory loves to climb up on the dishwasher and "help" mommy unload it, whether it's clean or dirty. I think it's so sweet that she sees me doing something and wants to do it, too. She loves being a kitchen helper. She also was still recovering from a sunburn in this picture - on her right cheek. Total mom fail. : (
A few nights ago I cooked spaghetti and this girl tore it up. She loves pasta and apparently spaghetti is a big favorite. She couldn't shovel it in her mouth fast enough. She has a bad habit of rubbing her head while she eats, which of course makes a huge mess everywhere! I thought it was so funny that she left a perfect spaghetti handprint on her forehead! I was getting ready for work as she was eating with daddy and I walked back in the room to find this:
All done! Clean plate award! I think she wants more!
After the rain finally stopped, we resumed our wagon walks. Our neighborhood streets flood really bad, so yes, the boots were necessary! Emory doesn't care what the weather is like - she just wants to be outside.
Wednesday we went to story time with some new friends and then had leftover spaghetti again. Side note: three cheers for me cooking routinely! Whoop whoop!
I just love her sweet little face. Also, I was thinking how this is truly a picture of innocence and naivety, in a good way. She doesn't care that her face is covered in spaghetti or that she's all messy. She's as happy as can be. I hope I can continue to teach her this - that it doesn't matter what people think about you as long as you love Jesus.
On Thursdays we have been going to a mommy and me swim class. It is SO much fun and Emory enjoys it more and more each time. In the beginning, she clung to my arm so tightly. Now she isn't as scared and plays and splashes around. It's so fun doing things with other mommas and their babies. We get a little workout and talking in and the babies get to play, too. Plus, she usually takes a big nap afterward!
Aren't these the cutest swim babies you've ever seen?!
This picture is a little blurry, but I thought it was so cute how she just sat there intently studying the movie case, as if she could read it. I was melting at her little inquisitive stare. Babies are too much fun.
Today we headed to the park with one of our new friends. Our play date didn't last long though. Emory had been swinging for about 20 minutes when she just started throwing up. I have no clue what happened. Of course I didn't have a change of clothes or anything prepared. Once we got home, she acted like she felt fine and ate a good lunch, so hopefully it was just a one time thing. She's napping now, so I'm praying that she wakes up feeling 100% normal. I felt totally clueless on what to do! Time to go make sure I have a change of clothes in the car. Lesson learned. : )
