Wow! I can't believe it has been so many months since I lasted posted! Life has been busy! We have had a wonderful summer with Emily. So many "firsts" this summer. Her first time in a backyard plastic pool, her first fireworks show, her first time coloring with sidealk chalk and her first picnic at the zoo. We have had such fun! Her second birthday has came and went but not without a party with family, and of course, plenty of gifts! She is really enjoying her Barbie four-wheeler - even though paranoid Mommy makes her wear a helmet everytime she is on it.
Her two year check up went as smooth as can be. She is progressing wonderfully and her Daddy and I don't forget our prayers of thanks for such a wonderful and healthy little girl. She is talking in complete sentences now and has an outrageous sense of humor. I know that we are just barely into the terrible twos stage, but she really hasn't had too many meltdowns. She has recently really gotten into TV and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse is by far her favorite show! Kerry and I know it by heart...
We reached another milestone shortly after her second birthday, although it wasn't a very fun one. Pacie is now gone forever. It was rough going to a couple of days, but she has finally gotten used to it being gone. It actually went smoother than I thought it would since pacie was truly her best friend. Her pediatrician gave us some wonderful advice and told us to cut the end of the pacifier off. That way, she would still have it but would not get any pleasure from it. It really worked like a charm.
I really wish I was better at keeping up with this blog. But, I guess I don't want to take a minute away from living life with Emily to write about it!
