Emma's 2 Year Check-Up

It's hard to believe Emma won't have another well exam for 1 year! Here are her numbers:
Height: 35 1/2"  92%
Weight: 26 lbs  40%

To summarize the doctor's comments:
-Wow, she's tall.
-Little light, but no worries.
-Geez, this kid has got some abs!
-She's a strong one. (as we are both holding her down to get her ears checked)

Emma is on the fast track to learning. She knows all of her colors and knows multiple letters. She doesn't stop talking and enjoys attempting all kinds of new words. I pray that this hunger for learning continues in the years to come!

This goof ball has stolen our hearts.

Happy Birthday Emma Part 3!

This is one lucky 2 year old! Emma celebrated her birthday for the 3rd time! My parents and grandma came down for a few days. It's crazy to think that the last time I saw them was back in October! Time flies; I wish it would slow down!

The keyboard was assembled, and you can just see how Emma feels about it!

Emma was a bit confused, because I call my grandma Grandma. So, she joined the club and called her Grandma too! So cute to see them together. 

Can't wait to freshen up on playing this and then teach her!

Emma teaching Dolly to play!

Grandpas and their technology :)

Ready for a nap.

Dinner time.
Blowing out the candles again!
More 'loppies'!
 Auntie Nina, Uncle Joel, and Cousin Wyatt sent a present for Emma. We had them on Skype while Emma opened it. It's sweet to see the relationship she has with Wyatt even though they are miles away. 

Auntie Nina!

A GIANT MINNIE!!!! Showing Wyatt!

Sharing stuffed animals with each other.
The other big news in the Udey household: We have an up and running fireplace! I had a chimney sweep come 2 weeks ago and make sure it was clean and ready to use. My dad helped me build our first fire. I am in love!

S'mores at 10am!

Cara got the first one!

Makes you feel all warm and cozy on a cold day!

S'mores for Grandma!
 We were attempting to get a picture with both the girls, but Emma decided taking pictures just wasn't her thing. 

Lunch: Roasted hotdogs.
Here's to another year with Emma! Happy Birthday Big Girl!

Happy Birthday Emma Part 2!

Jay's parents came down to celebrate Emma's birthday! We had such a blast!

A CD player with microphones!

A tea set!

On to her "birthday cake"! Emma had a Minnie Mouse themed birthday, & much to all of our surprise, she kept her birthday hat on! I can't take credit for the idea for her cupcakes either. Here's the blog I got it from: Balloon Cupcakes

John & Darlynn even brought balloons! Emma loved them!!!

Nap time!

Grandma time.

I love this picture! Shows how they feel toward their grandbabies!

Happy Birthday Emma!

Our Emma has turned 2! What an amazing girl we have! Enjoy the pictures! 

We made her sit down and wait for her presents.... they come....


Her own broom! No more getting hit with the big broom!
I got bored one night when Jay was working and made this dress for Emma. I LOVED Minnie Mouse growing up, and Emma has followed in my footsteps. :)

A Minnie Mouse Cinderella!

She found the front pocket!

Lily enjoyed Emma's birthday too :)
We decided Emma deserved a birthday treat. So, we went to Hy-Vee and let her pick out a cookie from the bakery. You can tell from the pictures that she enjoyed it! 

Here is our 2 year old.
