Funny and Sweet

Funny how things change when you have a child. Evidence as follows. Before Emma, I'm not gonna say my house was ever spotless, or even really clean most days, but I did have a somewhat decorated fireplace, and we could use the dvr, tv etc without wondering who pressed a button. Of course, she's facinated with the things she isn't allowed to touch. We did have this play-yard connected into a circle at one point but she just hated it, cried until we took her out. We call this the baby fortress...for the mobile baby. About 1 month into her crawling and me not being able to get ANYTHING done without carrying her to every single place I went, I decided to buy this. It wasn't overly expensive, well worth it's cost and I truly couldn't live without it. Since it surrounds the living room, we, too, are contained with her so she doesn't mind! She has room to crawl and play wherever and Mommy can load the dishwasher or eat 3 chips before Emma has re-arranged our entire entertainment center or caused an electric shock with her never-ending slobber.

Here is a sweet picture of Emma listening to Daddy read to her. She will sit and listen and is very patient most of the time. She is like her momma, loves to read!

This is on our anniversary, Jan 20th and we were going out to eat. I had a necklace on that Emma likes and she was playing with it. She likes to put things over or on her head and she just happened to grab it and put it over her head while I was still wearing it. She doesn't look too happy here, has a little cold but she smiled! :)

Nephews and Emma picture

I just had to share this picture. This is (from left to right) Cameron Breeding (Byron's brother Ronnie's little boy), Emma Breeding and Brandon Stephenson (Byron's sister, Kim's little boy). This was taken at Patty's Restaurant in KY and they were sitting on a table and the photographer is just wonderful! Sorry it's sideways but I can't figure out how to rotate it.

I can't figure this thing out very well, so you might have to keep scrolling to read the whole thing so far. Just keep going and you'll see. I'll try to get better!

Ok, so I fell off the blogger wagon!

Hello all! Needless to say, I disappeared off the blog thing. I just kept saying I would get to it and low and behold, I never did. Emma is now 8 months old! She weighs 19lbs and is off the charts for height. I'm going to "try" to post pics from the past several months so pray for me!

This is from June. Emma fell asleep in the car sucking her thumb! She doesn't do this much anymore so I just love this picture!

This was from Emma's first 4th of July! She DID NOT like the fireworks! She screamed the whole time and had to be taken inside. Maybe this year she'll like them better!

My sweet little face!

Crazy Bath Hair!

I think this is in July also, not sure but she loves smiling at her Daddy and she loved playing with this toy!

This was in October or November at Land Between the Lakes. I had to block the sun from her face so we could take the picture

This is one of my very favorite pictures ever! I love her expression and when we take her picture, the smiles at the flash so we just keep taking them over and over!

Very First Santa Picture at Patty's in KY. She did so good! She thought about crying for a second but when she realized Mommy and Daddy weren't leaving, she was fine.

Just a little Christmas outfit I bought for her. She likes to stand up holding a hand and she was smiling at Daddy!

Handsome Daddy and Emma

I promise to keep this updated and post more pics of her as often as I take them. I'm going to try to keep this updated. We are truly blessed because Emma really is the happiest baby! She has her grumpy moments as we all do but overall, she is just the joy and light of our lives. We could not feel more complete at this moment. Love to all of you!
