March for Babies

Here are pictures of our adventure today. The first of course are the cutest. This is Emma in her sun hat.






Emma and I are currently accepting applications/nominations for next year's March of Babies Family Team, to be known a Emma's Entourage. I think we need a whole crew. We will have T-shirts and everything. Let us know if you are interested....

Growing with Grins and Giggles

Tomorrow (if the weather cooperates) Emma will visit the University of Houston for the first time. We are going to attempt to participate in the March for Babies walk. See link on the right...

However, today when Emma woke up, she was all grins and a giggle.

And just for comparison purposes... This was Miss Emma on March 3rd. Take a look on the tiger in the picture on the left to compare size.

Another illustration of Miss Emma's growth. Emma, yesterday, getting ready for Miss Kim's.

Okay...and Mommy's first attempt at a video. Sorry for the dark picture. But listen closely at about 8 seconds. Then the video stream broke. Let's just say I won't make any money making professional videos in the near or distant future.

Okay okay.... a lot has happened...

since I last posted. Let's see if I can condense.

I was given a lovely baby shower or rather Emma was given a lovely baby shower. This was the "makeup" baby shower for the shower scheduled in January when let's just say I was avoidably detained.

Here are a few pictures:


Ladybug in ladybugs!


Emma spent her first few days at the Miss Kim's house (day care). And yes, that means I went back to work. I started off slow only going in Tuesday and Thursday of last week. I think the hardest day was Wednesday. I am a deep end of the pool not one torturous toe at a time person. Wednesday was just a tease. Please don't get me wrong, Monday night was hard. Tuesday morning was harder. But Wednesday was the hardest because I knew what it was going to be like to be away from her yet I had another day to enjoy her and cry because I couldn't be there. However, Emma rewarded me on Tuesday night. She couldn't be consoled by Daddy or Aunt MiMi, only Mommy would do. :)

But it's official now, I am back to work full-time. And Darren takes Emma to the sitter's because I think if it were up to me, I would just turn around and go home with her.

In case you didn't notice, there is a link to the March for Babies walk on the right side of the blog. I have decided to become a volunteer with the March of Dimes organization. To quote the organization:

"The money we raise for March for Babies will support lifesaving research, services, education and advocacy that help babies get a healthy start.

Please help by donating today!

The mission of March of Dimes is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth, and infant mortality."
