Our little Emey is now 6 months old! Actually she will be 7 months tomorrow, guess I got this post done just in time ;)
In May Monica and I took Emery to Montana. Emery thinks a car seat is the worst form of torture there is... so needless to say it was an interesting drive. The way there we left in the evening so Emery would sleep most of the way and that worked great! The way back we left in the morning and that worked not so great! Poor thing. We all survived though and mom and dad were very excited to have a grandchild at their house for the first time!
It was really great for me to be home. It's hard being a mom for the first time without having the support of your own mom being right there. I didn't realize how much I needed a break and rest till I got home. I didn't have to worry about Emery at all, though sadly I did have to have night duty ;) She does NOT like sleeping in a pack n play, but it was very nice having a break in the day. Mom and dad were so great with her. Though they do fight over who gets to hold her :) Dad always has this very proud look when it's his turn with his "little pumpkin". I do wish Jason could have been there though!
Emery Kate. She has received a double portion of stubborn genes from her daddy and momma, looks a lot like her daddy, acts a lot like her mommy, and it's so much fun to see her own little personality (though I don't think her personality will be "little" much longer :) coming through.
I'll need to catch up on the rest later. Little Boo Bear is up from her nap (or Gummy Bear as Jason calls her! I'll be sad when she has teeth and we lose her gummy smile :).
