Our beautiful baby!






Sorry it has been so long since I have posted, but I feel like I have been in survival mode. I have been using my free moments ( are they relly free?) while Emma naps to sleep myself or find time to eat. I feel like my life has been stolen by this precious little one. This is what it means to be a mom. And even though I am frustrated during the moments where she is screaming for 3hours if we stop bouncing her because she is colicky or when she decides her bedtime isn't until 1 in the morning, everytime I look at my precious daughter I am grateful to have her in our lives.

We are both adjusting to our new surroundings. Everytime I think we may be developing some sort of schedule, Emma changes it. I think she is going to have the stubborness her mom and dad have. Although I am starting to get used to the lack of sleep. If onlymy tailbone would get better. We have been having so much fun though getting her dressed. It is like having a little doll. She has started to love her bath times and if fussy before going in the water, she stops immediately and calms down. She loves the warm water. She also loves her daddy who has been wonderful when her mommy needs naps. He is very willing to share the load and help out wherever needed. Emma is 3 weeks old today. Here are some pics of her over the last two weeks.

I know what you mean about feeling like you have a little doll. I felt a little guilty about that one for a while, now bows, earings, shoes, tights, and dresses are a nonnegotiable part of our daily routine. Girls are the best. I see Roderick is getting some good sleep too... I love falling asleep with my baby in my arms.

She is precious! My baby is now walking, hitting, running and talking - it flies by way too fast! The last picture where she is wrapped in the green blanket she looks so much like Rod! I love the one of Rod sleeping with her. Those are the best pictures. Congrats!

My first blog experience

Halloween in AZ

This is the first picture I could find of us. Really it is Christmas now. Rod and I had fun planning this Halloween party. I even thought it would be a good time to make costumes ( I will think more about that next time).

Europe up till now

We spent a month this summer in Europe and it was so fun!! Then we packed up and moved from Bullhead City to Tempe, AZ. Roderick is enjoying his time finishing his Economics degree at ASU ( although finals stink). I am being a dental hygienist in Scottsdale, which is very fun! I love the people I work with and it keeps me busy. We are getting ready to head up to Utah next week for our Christmas break and can't wait. This blogging stuff is fun!
