5 months!

This little love has turned 5 months! I love this time with her - she is so sweet and just takes it all in! She changes each day, and we love every second! The sticker pictures are getting harder to take - this one was eaten and covered in drool!

I just love dressing up my sweet Emmy - love this outfit :)

We also started her on some cereal - she wasn't sure at first, but once she got the hang of it, you couldn't get it in her mouth fast enough!

Another new talent!

I added sweet potatoes last night, and someone is a BIG fan! She gobbled it down!

And this crazy one - he cannot keep his hands off of her! This picture cracks me up because he thought he was going to drop her!

Friday night serenade!

We have also graduated to the bouncer - she is a fan!

Some other Emmy tidbits -

You still nurse very well - about every 3 1/2-4 hours.
You are pretty good at sleeping - you wake up every now and then for a paci (just like brother use to do!)
You have rolled over and over and over again - we have to keep an eye on you!
You still think Griffin is the best, coolest person around. No one can make you laugh like him!
You still sleep by me - we have worked on transitioning you to crib, but it is going to take ME a bit! I love you next to me!
You are doing well with cereal!
You are a chunk and wear 6-9 months clothes! 6 months are getting a little tight!

Emmy Kate,
We love you so much - what a blessing you continue to be in our life! I want time to slow down because I love each and every moment with you!

Wrapping up 2013...

2013 has been a fantastic year for the Reed family! We started it with the news that baby #2 was on the way, and we ended it with a fun holiday with all four of us! I wanted to make sure I have all the good pics to include in my 2013 blog book so here are a few to wrap up the year!

Sweet girl and her new dollhouse!

New clothes from Aunt Jill!

A few more from Christmas morning! Bike and backpack - check! Thanks, Santa!

Some more good ones from his Christmas play - my little shepherd!

Love this one!

Christmas again -- always fun with Kiki!

Emmy loved all her new gifts from Santa, too!

I think Lil Miss is getting ready for some food! Here she is checking out Bubba and his corndogs :) Don't worry - we will start with cereal :)

We ended the year with a fun night with my best friends! My goddaughter and my daughter - Gracie loves her Emmy!

After the babies were sent to the grandparents, the adults had a fun night out. My lifelong friends - Amanda, Erin, and Jenn. Amanda and Erin both came in town - I miss them greatly, and we never skip a beat on reconnecting! 

Everyone! I've known these folks for over 25 years - talk about a blessing!

New Years Eve was spent at our house with our Dinner Club friends (my sis and bro joined the fun!) - lots of food and good times! Emmy didn't make it too late, but brother stayed up til midnight!

We can't wait for the joys of 2014 - two sweet babies and many more memories to make! Thank you, God, for making dreams come true!
