My Emi is doing great, she had a top middle tooth coming out, you can see it but it hasn't broken through yet, she is mostly ok with just teething tablets
...and guess who joined us this week? My perfect, amazing, beautiful nephew Lucas!!! Emi is very curious about him and stares at him and wants to touch his face. Ant is the most gentle with him, it's kind of odd since she isn't gentle with anybody/thing else haha.

Emi is such a joy, I honestly can't get enough of her giggles and incessant calls for dadadadadadadadadadadadadadadadada. Lately she has been experiencing some attachment problems, she has always been a cuddler and has always loved lots of touch from me in particular; but in the last few weeks and days there is an obsession for me, she wants me to hold her ALL the time and if somebody else has her she cries until I pick her up. We are working through it and she is toughening up a little at a day.
Food is still delicious to her, she loves everything we have tried, squash, sweet potatoes and carrots are still a favorite, and she really really enjoys gumming on frozen bell peppers.
She says dada, papa and mama.
We went to the pumpkin patch and had such a fun time. The girls are fun, they really just bring joy everywhere we go. I am loving being a mom so very much, I never imagined it would be so incredibly amazing. There are days that are challenging and I remember how time goes by so very quickly and try to laugh a little and not sweat the small stuff.

Emi had a rough week. She has decided that unless she is held she isn't happy, so week 31 consisted of Emi not being held so she learns to soothe herself and be happy playing with toys, her sister, or whatever she may find. That meant Emi cried a lot during week 31. For no reason, she just cried because she wasn't being held. Which is silly, and it's really hard for me, but i am trying to teach her she's ok crawling and exploring. As I am typing this she is standing but the couch holding unto my leg crying.
She also has been sleeping a lot better which is lovely. She is a pro-crawler and get places with ease. She decided to grab a small table we have and it fell on her. The problem was that the laptop was on the table and apparently it was hot enough to burn her sensitive skin. So she has a mark on her cheek and I feel horrible every time I look at her. She can stand using just one hand for balance and she has been saying dada more and more.
Her raspy voice is still a thing and she loves when people are looking at her and talking directly at her. She takes two naps during the day, usually around 10am and 3pm; the morning nap is 2 to 2.5 hours long, the afternoon one is 1.5 to 2 hours long.
Emi is one fun baby. And she's done crying. She is now playing with her toys on the floor. This kid!

7 Months today!
Emi scoots, stands, says dada, doesn't sleep through the night anymore and wakes once. She is going through a little bit of separation anxiety and wants me to hold her if I am around, but once she gets over it she crawls and moves all over and plays. She doesn't like being left alone in a room, loves showers and baths and kisses. She really likes to snuggle and sleeps a lot better if someone is close by, but we refuse to co-sleep =).
She makes funny noises and imitates some things we do, like tapping tables, or certain noises. She reaches for me every time she sees me, and she loves loves loves sweet potatoes and carrots. We mix her favorite orange foods with green beans and peas and get her to eat some greens.
Antonella accidentally gave her rice milk and she also got a hold of a water bottle and drank a bit. She didn't seem to be bothered by either, at least not as much as I was haha.
She is pretty fun and happy and easygoing and I love what she adds to our little family.

Somebody got earrings. On Sat the 20th we went to get her earrings pierced and it was sad for me but Emi got over it super quick. She's amazing. Also she has been getting up. She will crawl up to a couch or chair and pull herself up. She is nuts.

Somebody has been going to the pool a lot, and she loves loves loves it. We came to visit lela (grandma in Spanish is Abuela but Ant can't say it, so now we call them lela and lelo) in Palm Springs and Emi was having the time of her life at the warm pool. She love toys that are bright, the noise plastic bags make and paper wrinkling noises.

Emi has been crawling better and better every day. She is very strong and fast and her teeth are fully out and so stinking cute. She is very ticklish now, and her sister is hysterical to her, Antonella just does silly things around her and she giggles all the time.

She is still taking two naps, 10am and 3pm and sleeping through the night. She has been saying Dada Dada left and right. We think it is her first word =).

Two bottom front teeth breaking through. She is back to sleeping from 8pm to 5am, which is lovely. And she got pretty good at sitting up, not crawling fully but doing a half crawl-half scoot thing.
