Almost Christmas

We have had fun the last few weeks as Emma has become more aware of her surroundings. We got her a Bumbo chair for Christmas, but her dad decided she needed it early. I think I will still stick a bow on it for Christmas. She loves sitting up and watching TV. I am not so sure how I feel about the TV part, but she loves the colors. We got her a new play center too, thanks to her Gigi Nelson's gift of shopping. She smiles at the sun in the middle and has started to talk to all the toys. She likes to hit them with her fists and tries to grab them. She loves playing with her cousin are some pictures of them and her new toys.

She has an aversion to the carseat lately, or more the car when she can't see anyone's face. Thank goodness for all the smiley face toys, they really help keep her happy! We can't wait for her first Christmas! She has found her fist and likes to suck on it lately. We are also trying to wean her from sleeping in her swing, but since she sleeps with her arms straight up if not swaddled and swinging, she hits herself when she moves and wakes up so that may still take awhile....

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!
