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.

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!
