Emma's Room!

Well, we've had Emma's dresser for far too long without painting it. 
So, this week Jay and I painted it. Here is the before and after!



Jay's parents came down for a few days and put some shelves up in 
Emma's room and got her a few 'girl' gifts. :)

Darlynn has wanted to buy Emma this rug since
she was born; I finally gave the okay for a rug.

Emma loves her grandpa. 

Grandma got Emma a brush for her growing hair!

Beautiful!

Here's a few more pictures of our precious, growing girl!

Waking up and on the go right away.

Looks like she's having a blast! 


Darlynn brought down some amazing baskets with snowmen to decorate
our house with. Emma played with the extra paper and pine cones. 


Last, Emma wanted to tell everyone that she took 3 steps on her own, unassisted today!!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We had one of our most memorable Thanksgivings yesterday. Our good friends, Skyla and Dylan, came over and enjoyed the whole afternoon and evening with us! It was the first Thanksgiving that all of us were away from family. Different but we still enjoyed ourselves. 
Pictures tell it better than words! 

Appetizers!

The bird is cookin! 
The bird carver. 

Dylan making gravy!

The spread!!!!!!

This was the view from the only empty chair on the table.... 

Emma spent most of dinner and the day staring at Dylan.

Loving her first Thanksgiving!!! 

We had to make homemade popcorn while watching our Thanksgiving
movie, Horton Hears A Who.

Emma got pretty excited when the kernels started popping. 

Looking cute on her 1st Thanksgiving!!!

A Weekend Filled With Love

Aunt Laurie and Uncle Chaim came to visit on Saturday! We always love when they have time to come down and catch up. There's always conversation about the house, the working world, and even wood stoves this time!


Jay's mom also came down for the weekend. We had a wonderful time at the Women's Coffeehouse on Friday night as Jay watched Emma. Saturday was a girl's morning as we went to the mall together!




Emma's winter coats aren't quite fitting her yet. She has a little growing to do. So while at the mall we went coat shopping! Our good friend, Colleen, told me that Old Navy was having a great sale on coats. That was the jackpot for us! I'll get a better picture of her in the coat soon but this one will have to do for now. Of course, after getting a new coat, she needed a cute hat to go with it. After many stores, we found the perfect one! She's adorable! 


We spent some time in the play center at the mall, until big kids got there. 


Today, we had our own little 'zoo' trip! We took Emma to Petco!

FISH!!!
She loved the mice and gerbils. They were only a glass pane away! 
I think the ferret wanted to get out.
He kept tugging at the lock. Kind of a scary animal. 

She's stays busy. We're just waiting for the day that she flips into her toy bucket. 
It's bound to happen. 



What better way to teach Emma to read!?! The newspaper!




I feel like I haven't gotten a lot of great pictures of her lately. I'm sure it's because she's on the go ALL the time! She crawled all the way to the kitchen on this particular day! It's time to put the gate up!

Soon, she'll be on the go much more. Here's a video of her walking with her 'walker'. She can do this for about 10 minutes before she gets tuckered out. It won't be long....

Ah Ha!


My long time, amazing friend, Meg Rude, who has taught me so much in life,.... has taught me something again. I attempted to learn how to add new pages/tabs/buttons to our blog quite a while ago. After becoming frustrated, I gave up. BUT, Meg figured it out and passed on her wisdom to me! 

I have a lot of tweaking yet to do but have made a 'Udey Timeline' so far. 
Check it out and hopefully there will be more to come!

Busy Busy

Emma has been keeping me busy between being sick, crawling, and shuffling along everything. I look up sometimes and she's out of sight!





This is blurry but I love the smiles on both their faces.
Looking cute!


Emma's innocent face. 

For some reason, she's really into biting this.... 

More story time with Cara!

Unloading her whole diaper bag. 

Working on walking along the couch. 

Normally she has something in her hands and has been putting it on her head. Weird girl :)

'Ah, Hello!'

Sick Baby

 I forgot to put up Emma's Halloween costume. She was one of those ladies that dresses up to go work out. :) I thought since Jay works out and she had to look cute, why not put them together?!?!


Not sure what she was trying to say to me with this expression.

The last week or so, Emma has not been herself. She has fallen asleep quite a few times on me and just lounges around on the floor. She has her bursts of energy every once in a while. It's hard knowing there's nothing I can do but 'baby' her. It does make for some cute pictures and cuddle time. 

Snuggling with GiGi.

Mr. Kitty makes her feel better.

Daddy time.  



Picture perfect.

My mom came down for the weekend. As usual, I didn't get too many pictures of them together. But, here's one.

Playing with her new barn.


Cara came over for most of the weekend while my mom was here and 
Emma just loves her soooooooo much!





Cara wanted to take a nap and Emma needed to make sure she was okay. 


Whoops... must of got her hair :)
