Brad is working today until 4PM and then we are all heading to Winnfield for a couple days. Em is rolling around everywhere and starting to rock back and forth like she wants to crawl but isn't quite ready! We also now have 4 teeth in and a 5th one about to make an appearance! Her favorite activity right now is pulling off her socks... she prefers to pull her right sock off over her left one.
11/23/2012: We are in Winnfield! We had our Thanksgving meal last night when we arrived. It was WONDERFUL as always. Em and Syd enjoyed sitting in their high chairs eating puffs and talking to everyone during the meal!
Today Emma got to swing with Pops in her new swing set and then play all day with Granna and Pops!!
Emma: Cousin Syd is really moving!! I try to hide a toy from her and she moves until she finds it!! That syd is sneaky!!!
11/24/2012: More play today and hanging out with the family. We took some Christmas photos today once Lauren and Dad got back with the Christmas tree. I think that sucker is 11 feet tall!
Emma: Today I got to play with Christmas lights. Apparently it is frowned upon to put these lights in your mouth. Oh well, they were pretty to look at and play with. I hope we get to put a tree up in our house!! How fun will that be to pull off all the lights and ornaments!
11/25/2012: We had plans to attend church today yet last night was not very peaceful at the Thurmon household. Em woke up around 1:30AM so I went to see what was going on. I picked her up and noticed this white thing sticking out between the snaps in her PJ's. I tugged on it and it was Pip's brush!! Somehow her brush ended up into her pajamas. I'm guessing this is what woke her up... Atleast a brush in my PJ's would wake me up! After all was said and done, me, Brad and Pops were up while Emma was laughing and playing at 3AM. We finally took a short ride in the car and Emma was back asleep until the morning.
On a side note, we did not plan to dress the girls the same each day.. but it just happened! Seems they have the same personal shopper!
11/26/2012: Back to work today! Em was so happy to see her crib last night and was even more excited to see Mrs. Millie this morning!! She loves her Millie. On a different note, no rouge hair brushes were found in Pip's PJ's last night.
Today it is very rainy and humid. These humidity has done a number on Emma's curls!! We need to consult Aunt Lauren for advice on curly hair containment!
11/27/2012: Today was a day of a lot of first! First shoe shopping trip for Pip, first Christmas tree shopping adventure for Pip and first time that she said Da Da! She is also now enjoying her bottle as much and prefers baby food and puffs over milk. Where did my little infant go???
Emma loved the sock bin while we were shopping for shoes, loved to pull out the pine needle while we were looking at Christmas trees and loved to see her daddy smile when she would say da da.
Emma: Whew, what a busy day!! Mom and dad brought me to this huge store when they got off work. I loved to play in the bin full of socks because they were already off my feet...they were free socks that I could play with!!! Don't let mom fool you on the Christmas tree hunt... we were at Lowe's......She said we would go to a bigger tree farm next year when I could walk. It seems everything is "always next year". Well, off to bed to figure out my next word is going to be.. probably "jack the cat" will come out next!
11/28/2012: Today Emma decided she does not like her formula. She made an abrupt switch from breast milk to formula about 4 months ago when one day she decided to stop partaking of breast milk. This change in milk palate caused me to make a quick purchase of formula. I picked the kroger brand (gasp!!) formula as I had no clue which one to pick. Well, she loved it..... until today. Today she refused to drink it. Only drinking 5 ounces by 5PM. Thus I went back to Kroger and got another genre of Kroger brand formula. I don't know anything about those other brands and I was overwhelmed. So I stuck with what I was familiar with... Kroger brand formula. Well, Emma loves the new stuff! I'm not sure what is going on yet things are back to normal for now! Kroger brand formula with the yellow banner is now in our pantry instead of the Kroger formula with the blue banner.
Apparently with the new switch in formula came a new sleeping position.. the foot in hand sleeping position. Sweet dreams Pip!
