The Next Michael Jordan?????

Emma has started the Michael Jordan signature of sticking her tongue out. These are only a few that I took today. She loves doing it, hopefully not forever though! 

She's also learned the art of spitting her drool all over the place. Once again, the blog won't let me upload the video. Here's the Facebook link. Video

Emma's been on the, not crawling yet. She had a play date this last Saturday with her new friend Mason. Jay was helping Austin, Mason's dad, put together the swing set he got for his 1st birthday! It took the whole day, but I'm excited for another play date so we can see the finished product! Michelle, Mason's mom, and I made my first batch of homemade baby food. Overall, it was a very productive day!

"Lock Up Your Daughters" Love Mason's shirt!

A video of Emma's true giggle. Giggly Girl

We didn't have much going on today. So, I took a few pictures of our little girl who is growing up too fast. I simply asked her to smile. 

It finally cooled off enough this week that Emma and I were able to join Auntie Cara in the pool! We got before pictures and after pictures but no during :(  I'm okay with it this time, mainly because I'd rather have 2 of us watching this little one anytime.

By the time we had dinner and put Emma's pajamas on, she was ready to kick back for a few minutes before bed. I think swimming tuckered her out. I'll have to keep this in mind!

Any moms out there??? Question: What have you tried when your child decides their new wake up time is 5:45-6:15? Does putting them to bed earlier work? Do you feed them anything specific? I'm just asking around. Emma has decided to get up a little earlier than she normally does. :(

I'll saved the picture that made me laugh the most until the end.


  1. Hey Jill! Okay, so I am not anything resembling an expert on this topic, BUT the first question I would ask is : Do you think she in waking because she is hungry? If the answer to that is yes I would try adding more food or more feedings during the day. Maybe she is more hungry due to a growth spurt?? If the answer is no I would maybe try to give her a little time and see if she will fall back asleep. Let me know what you find out. I would love to know the answer too :) Some days Amaia sleeps until 7 or 8 and some days she wakes at 5:30. She is still a total mystery to me. Oh and Amaia loves to spit her drool all over the place too! Ha! Good luck!

  2. I love the last picture!! :) What a funny girl!
