May 2010

Well, our big project for the month of May was getting the pool open!!  What a fiasco!!  Neither Chris nor I realized it was such a science experiment to do so.  You have to get the water balanced just right which took us forever!!  We finally got it right on Memorial Day weekend.  The pool looks amazing now and we have used it quite a bit and are looking forward to lots of swimming the rest of the summer!  In May Emma also tried out rice cereal for the first time!  She wasn't too sure at first but ate like a champ once she got the hang of it.  We also had a visit from Pop Pop which was so much fun!  Below is a link to pics from May.  Enjoy!

Baby Emma Slideshow

I tried out a new website today to make a little slideshow.  Didn't take long at all and turned out pretty well.  Here it is!

Happy 5 Month Birthday Emma!!

Dear Emma,

Today you are 5 months old!!  I can't believe how fast the time has gone by.  It seems like just yesterday you were still in Mommy's belly and Mommy couldn't wait for you to be born.  You have grown so much in the past 5 months. 

At 5 months old, you are a very happy girl most of the time with lots and lots of gummy grins and if Mommy tickles you or Daddy makes funny faces you have the cutest little laugh.  You also tried out your Jumperoo a few weeks ago and love to play in that.  Your big brother Jack loves to bounce you up and down in it but we have to remind him not to do it too hard! 

You are still breastfeeding at 5 months and we recently started giving you a little bit of formula each day too.  At first you didn't like the formula but now you are perfectly happy to take either the bottle or milk from Mommy. 

You are pretty much sleeping through the night.  By 8pm you are tired and ready for bed.  Mommy wakes you around 1am to eat then you usually wake Mommy around 6 or 6:30am to eat then go back to bed until 8:30 or 9am. 

We also gave you some rice cereal and prunes for the first time over the past month!  You weren't too sure you liked them at first but quickly would finish the whole bowl!!  However, the rice cereal ended up causing you some unpleasant constipation issues so we've decided to wait another month or so before trying the rice cereal again ;)

You also love to roll all over the place now.  If Mommy puts you on the floor to play, within minutes you're on the other side of the room!  You also like to put everything in your mouth but your favorite is still your thumb which you've been sucking since you were only 2 weeks old!! 

Mommy loves you so so much my sweet baby girl!! Please don't grow up so fast ;)

Love you forever and ever,

Having fun in your Jumperoo!!

So much fun you fell asleep!!
