Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow....

We've had quite a bit of snow here lately, and Emily is totally loving it! She loves to put her winter coat on (weird!) and her hat and mittens too. She'll just hold her hands out and wiggle her little thumb into place. She has some cute boots too that she likes to put on. She's done a few face plants into the snow and gotten stuck because she can't move with all her stuff on-you feel bad for her, but it's kinda funny to see her trying to get up (I help her up-I promise!!). Toppling over a time or two doesn't seem to bother her though. She loves to run around and make footprints in the snow.

She always wants to go outside now. She'll grab her coat, try to put it on, and go stand and point at the front door. She'll even grab the keys and try to put the keys into the door to get it open (pretty cute actually). If that doesn't work, she'll bring her coat and the keys to us!

Here's just a few pictures that we took the other day as we were walking around in the snow. As per usual she was totally avoiding eye contact with the camera....Oh well!

That's actually our humble abode right above her hat. The first floor-little patio and the two windows to the left.....Wow, exciting-I know!!

What a mess!

Daddy was able to get a picture of Emily both looking at the camera and smiling...he's good! She was jumping on the couch and ottoman-she loves to do that. She likes jumping on the bed too-little monkey!!!

Thought I'd just give her the whole cup of applesauce and let her feed herself.....Didn't go over too well!!

It was fun to play with though!

Getting to Work

Well, I've been doing okay at getting the pictures uploaded to the site-in case that maybe I'd be able to catch a break at work to do the narrating. That hasn't quite gone as planned though. :) Usually there's quite a delay in when the post is dated and when the post is posted. Therefore, Emily decided to take things into her own hands to make sure her extreme cuteness is being shared!

She loves to sit at the computer just like Mommy and Daddy do!

OK, Crazy Bed Head, I know. Looks like she stuck her finger in a light socket! Still cute regardless!!

Saylor's Birthday!

Emily and I were able to get to Ohio for Saylor's first birthday. Aaron had to work, so he wasn't able to make it. Emily was so good for me in the car-I was so thankful Aaron's mom had given us a portable DVD player-Emily loved it!!! So did I :)

My sister's friends that were there for Saylor had kids too. It was so much fun to watch Emily interact with them. Of course I didn't get any pictures, but she was so sweet playing with one of the girls who I think was about 8 or 9 months old. Emily would start crawling following the little girl, and give the baby her paci (actually the right paci too!). Even when the baby would try to climb on Emily, she didn't mind-and was so gentle too! I haven't gotten the chance to see Emily play with babies too often, and it was so sweet to see. I mentioned it to her teachers at daycare, and they said that she is always real nice to the other babies at daycare-bouncing them in the bouncer and giving paci's and such. Our little girl is so sweet!!!

All pretty!!!

This is just her playing with her stroller, but it shows her whole outfit-and I thought she looked so cute-had to share it!!

Saylor opening presents-How fun!!

Emily feeding Saylor-Katlynn had come over to play too.

Emily absolutely loves my parents' dog 'Missy.' We taught her how to give Missy treats, now whenever Emily has food she wants to give it to Missy!!

Gee, I wonder where she learns how to do this???

Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree.....

Well, our little Christmas tree has been put up. We had gotten a small (pre-lit!) one last year for the apartment. We didn't think that we'd be using it again, but alas, here we are using it again. I put some ornaments on there, tried to keep them unbreakable. Although, just yesterday Emily knocked the whole tree over, and broke a bulb that I had. I loved that one too!! Got it at a cute shop in Mt. P-hand painted with flip-flops & 2005. I'll have to find one whenever we get down there (I'm hoping soon!). Although you lose the nostalgia of the 2005....maybe I'll paint that on there! HA!! That would be the only breakable item on there, and it would be the one to hit the ground and shatter. Take that back, there was also a palm tree that I had painted at that ceramic paint place in Boone Hall that's no longer there. That broke in two-but I'm determined to super-glue it back together. Hmmmmm I'm not clinging to the past here am I??? I promise that there are other things on our tree too-not just SC memories :) Oh yeah-how 'bout those Buckeyes??!!!!!

Here's Emily getting into the tree!

Wow, look at the pretty lights!

I did break down and bought Emily a stroller for her baby dolls ($7 at Target). She loves it!! She pushes everything around in it, covers them up with her blanky, and leans over to give them a hug-so cute!!

She loves her new mittens!
