Precious, darling Emma Kate,
Look at you grow, girl! Mama doesn’t even know where to begin telling you about your very busy month. I have so much to say, so I guess instead of starting at the beginning, I’ll just start at the top.
Your hair. It has lightened up some, still brown, and is thick on top and grows in a point like Dracula (just like my dream)but not a scary, blood thirsty Dracula, but rather a beautiful, bright-eyed smooch able baby girl Dracula.
Your teeth. Yep, they’re there. Two shiny white pearls on bottom. Finally. You’ve been a dream teether, you haven’t fussed one bit, but we could feel these little suckers when you were four months old and have been waiting patiently.
With those new toofies you’ve tried some real food.
In your most humble opinion:
Rice cereal= bleck!
Peas= double bleck!
Strawberries= sour bleck! (unlike my dream)
The foods that have received an Emma stamp of approval are peaches, pears, avocado, and squash. We’re trying to keep you away from sugar and junk food, but we did offer you a taste of frozen yogurt, but the cold surprised you so, I’m not sure which list it belongs on.
Your mouth. It’s so sweet, and you have the best smiles to give. You are not much of a laugher, but full of grins. You can make ma-ma, da-da, bye-bye sounds! And holy cow you are loud! We tease you that you got that from your grandy.
Your butt. You are sitting alone for really long periods of time, when just a couple weeks ago you were a weeble wobble on a round butt. Now you’re an old pro.
Your Legs. They are fat! But those thunder thighs aren’t slowing you down. You are moving and scooting! You use your elbows and one leg to pull and drag yourself around. But that left leg is like a dead man’s, just dragging around behind you.While I’ve been typing, you have gone to the kitchen, gotten into the potatoes and onions, drug yourself around to the fridge, then back to the potatoes. Lazy is NOT your middle name. You are simply amazing and are taking the world by storm.
Cankles? Yep, you got them.
Your toes. Oh my goodness, I love to get those piggies because they taste so sweet.
That’s you from top to toes, baby girl. You are our delight. It has been so much fun loving you the last six months. Gosh, you’ll never know how adored you are. I mean that. Completely, Totally, Altogether, Absolutely ADORED and LOVED from top to bottom.
You are the best thing that has ever happened to me, my dear one. I love you!!
