This week we moved her crib to Ant's room and they are officially roommates. They have done so well!! Most mornings Ant just comes in and tells us that Emi is awake. She gets a little worried that her sister is awake and can't escape the crib, when we walk back to the room with her she runs to Emi and pats her head, Emi doesn't like it haha. 

Emi has a new smile, she scrunches her whole little face and it's adorable. She took 3 steps this week, and kept taking little steps here and there. She will be walking in no time. She is more and more comfortable being away from me, but she is still happier if I am around her. She loves to explore everywhere and listens to commands.

Emi tried on her Christmas Eve outfit. Isn't she adorable? She is not a big fan of shoes, she just sits there and tries to take them off for a while until she gets them. Sometime Ant helps her, for some reason neither one of my daughters likes shoes, what is that?

It takes her about 30 seconds to get up the stairs which I think is crazy. She is more and more comfortable meandering around without seeing me at all times. She still prefers if I don't leave the room but she can leave it and all is well.

This week she officially has been out of my belly longer than in my belly. Isn't that crazy?

Emi gets cuter by the hour. I honestly don't know what we are going to do with her. She moves so much, she doesn't want to stay still, but then she comes over and kisses me and snuggles me for a few minutes. She loves staring at me and playing with my face. I love it.

She had some candy thanks to her older sister haha, she of course loved it, but I am hoping that's the last she'll see of candy for a while. She loves rice, and crackers, and beans, and pretty much everything but green beans. Her hair is getting longer and curling up more and more, and she keeps being an amazing sleeper. I love her.

This week we officially took out the 9-12 months clothes and all the 6-9 months clothes were put away. Emi tries to take steps here and there, and she takes one and falls but has never done more than that. She is such a happy baby. She now knows how to crawl up and down the stairs, and if she can see me she is happy crawling for hours at a time, she loves exploring and playing with different things.

Ant and Emi are playing more and more together. Mostly Emi plays and Ant gets annoyed haha. But sometimes Ant plays too and it's cute. I love seeing them together.

Emi caught a little bit of a cold while in Palm Springs for Thanksgiving. She is a trooper and is handling it great, but she's stuffed up and is hard to breathe. She absolutely loves the pool, started eating rice, noodles, quinoa and pretty much anything she can get in her hands. She is super fast crawling and gets up without any help from anybody. she says papa, mama and bye bye, and does it when we ask her too. If we make the hand motion for bye she says bye, and we are learning more sign language but just like Ant it is taking a little bit.

Emi just keeps growing. The pajamas she's wearing are 9 months and barely fit, she's not 9 months yet. She is taller than Ant was at this age, and heavier, somehow still under 10%.

Her top two teeth are officially out and it looks like the top teeth next to those are coming too. She is still dealing with separation anxiety and barely lets people hold her. It's ju

Emi is moving more and more, she goes up the stairs quick, and is learning how to go down them, she can only go down one or two right now. She still loves food, it's crazy how excited she gets about it, and she still loves snuggles, kisses, and love. I can't even handle her most of the time, I just want to squish her and kiss her non-stop. She has such a sweet and loving personality, it's crazy.

My little happy baby. She has her two front teeth coming and still is happy as a clam. Loves bath time even when Antonella is ready to attack her with water and hugs and dangerous pats on the head. Still standing all the time and walking while holding onto objects. She really does love to snuggle and in the morning when she wakes up Caleb moves her to our bed, she nurses and then she just stares at me and plays with my face for 20-30 minutes.

She says mama and papa clearly. And she DOES NOT like it when I leave the room. The nursery at church is no fun right now because of separation anxiety. Thank goodness the nursery volunteers are amazing.

Ant is still learning how to love on her sister.

 photo Week35-1_zps33a9a062.jpg Emi keeps growing faster and faster. She stands all the time and without effort, but hasn't started taking steps quite yet. She is sleeping beautifully, and continues on her schedule of two naps and a 9-10 hr night. She loves loves loves food, all kinds of food, and whatever she finds goes to her mouth. All eyes on her!

Emi is amazing. She really is. She learned to crawl up two stairs this week, only problem is she ends up stuck there because she doesn't know how to get down, she may have fallen a couple times. She loves being outside and exploring everything. We started giving her mums (rice crackers for babies) and she loves them. Her top two front teeth are still peeking but not quite out yet. She laughs about everything, Ant is super funny to her, I am funny to her, dad is funny to her, life is funny to her, everything is just so enjoyable for her.

Big development this week she stood without assistance, she was standing there for about 6 seconds and then fell, but she stood without assistance!!! CRAZY.

 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.
