1st Mother's Day!

Our first Mother's Day was pretty uneventful, but special just the same. Although I didn't get the blackened toast, burnt bacon and runny eggs served to me in bed like I am looking forward to someday, I was blissfully allowed to sleep as late as I liked. Unfortunately, I am so used to the Princess waking me every morning, I woke up at 6:30 anyhow. I tried to force myself to stay in bed longer and try to go back to sleep, but I could hear Emily giggling and playing in the next room so I figured playing with her is better than sleeping any old day! But...I did cash in my sleep late card for a nap card later in the day!!!
After we were up and about, we went to breakfast at Cracker Barrel and then to Mamaw and Granddaddy's to spend the day. There I received a card from Kerry and one from Emily. Kerry had held her hand to help her write her name in it... so cute! Inside the card was a gift certificate for a manicure, pedicure, facial and massage at Dazzle Day Spa, which I got to use this past Saturday - it was wonderful!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I couldn't have asked for a better first Mother's Day. Now I am just looking forward to Father's Day so Emily and I can honor Kerry for being the wonderful Daddy he is!!

Time Marches On...

Emily is now 8 months old. That is really hard to comprehend when it seems like just yesterday we were still in the hospital. She now has 4 teeth - I think. I know her two bottom, middle ones and one of the top ones are in. I think there may be another one in on top, but little Ms. Stubborn refuses to let me see. Everytime I try to stick my finger in her mouth to check out the situation, she shoves my hand out of the way. Guess I can't really blame her. I don't think I would like someone constantly sticking their finger in my mouth either.

Still no crawling yet, but she is getting so close! She will go from sitting to putting her hands on the floor and trying to push with one leg. I think if she could just get her other leg out from underneath of her, she would have it!

She has been sleeping pretty well. Over the last several weeks she had been doing awesome! We would put her to bed around 7:30 and she would sleep until 6:30 or 7:00. But the past two nights we put her to bed, she would sleep a couple of hours and then wake up around 10:00. Maybe her teeth are hurting her... It is so frustrating to know that their is something making my baby uncomfortable and not knowing for sure what it is!

Well, that is about all I have to report for sure to check back soon!!
