Updates & Recent Pictures of the Girl


The last few days have been exciting for us all. Although we spent the last week in the hospital, Emma made some progress towards meeting some milestones within this last week. Emma has been waving bye-bye for some time now and signs "more" & "daddy". Within the last couple of days Emma has been communicating with us more by pointing to things she wants and shaking her head "no" when she doesn't want something. Another exciting happening that Emma is doing is that she is so close to sitting by her self. She loves to sit in her new highchair and we have been putting her in it as much as she will let us. Due to her new found comfort in her highchair, her interest in food has increased rapidly. Emma has realized that she likes mashed potatos and coffee cake. Praise the Lord this is an answer to prayer. We have been waiting for her to show interest in food for so long. Emma also got her first haircut a couple of weeks ago and loves to brush her hair and her baby's hair (head). Emma also surpised us by sucking on a pacifier this weekend. We love seeing her progress so rapidly and are waiting to see what she'll do next.

I love this picture -- she's so peaceful, just like a big girl. God will bless her, every day.
