Emma enjoyed her first Christmas, and has been playing with her new toys. The rattle and the blocks are quite popular. (Lots of pictures today.)
We had a wonderful day yesterday, but this morning we received our gift from Emma: a full night's sleep. I awoke this morning to little sounds emanating from the crib, "meh...buh...deh." I listened for a few moments, then Laurie woke up and said, "She's not crying," then, a moment later, "Its light out." I put on my glasses and looked at the clock. "Its seven-thirty." We couldn't have asked for a nicer gift from our daughter.
Here are a few older pictures, since its been so long since I posted.
The seven-month smile.
Her new high chair is a hit!
Standing! This is the first time she stood up without being held. She grabbed the edge of the couch and pulled herself up. She does it all the time now.
