Oh that face!
Emily's bff Ava. She is 3 months younger than Emily but has always been bigger. She is so cute!
Angie's son Jake. He is just such a sweet boy !
Isn't this bathing suit so cute! Thanks Aunt Shirley!
Is that not the sweetest picture ever!! They look so much alike here too.
Carly is not your typical teen. She blows me away with the choices she has already made in her life. I am so proud of her and so thankful that Emily will have her as a role model. I love you Carly, you have been such a blessing to us!!! Congrats!!!
It is a lot of work to pack Emily up and take her any wear, that is why we appreciate when people make the effort to come visit us here. Lately it has to be something pretty special to get us to all pack up and go out. We would not miss this though!!!
A while back my aunt Shirley bough Emily a water way babies pool and we got put her in it last night. Lately if Emily is not being held or in her swing or asleep she is a little whiny. I would not say fussy just wants to be held. When we put her in the pool I was expecting for her to not like it but she was so content! She did not make a peep. She was so relaxed!!
One last belly shot.
I ended up having to have a c-section.
Beginning to see a trend?
She loved to be swaddled!
Ha! I love this!
Her little face swelled because of the steroids she took to try and stop her spasms.
Her 1st Easter. She slept through the pictures!
She did such a good job!!
Happy 1st birthday my sweet sweet girl! I can't believe how fast this year has gone by! You weigh almost 19lbs now and are just over 24in long. You wear a size 3 diaper and are in 12-18 month clothes. You are growing really fast right now! You still have very small feet and wear a size 1-2 show. Your hair is starting to grow back and I think it will be dark brown. You have become such a Mommy's girl lately and if I am not holding you you say mom over and over. You love it when daddy hold you in his lap and you face out, it puts you to sleep every time!
I am so proud of how hard you work! You have physical and occupational therapy every week. I think you like PT better though. :) It always makes you really tired. This past week you have not had any seizures or spasms!! Praise the Lord!! You act like you are feeling good too! You are smiling a lot more too!
Emily, you are my dream come true, my greatest accomplishment, and just a little grin you from lifts my spirits like nothing else can. I know that the past 6 months have been hard. I pray daily that you would be healed and I pray that one day you will be able to read this and the rest of this blog and see how much we love you along with many many other people.
Being your mom is all I have ever wanted. I am so thankful for you! I love you Emily Jean!!!
I plan on printing this blog one day and if you would like to write something to Emily for her 1st b-day I will print those comments out too! p.s. still no seizures!!!
