Em didn't refuse to eat any meals today. Tonight we are attempting to get Emma to stay up a little later and see if she might sleep a tad later. Fingers crossed, we will see what happens in the morning.
Em woke up at 5AM, played in her crib until around 6 and then was ready to actually get up. The whole staying up later thing did not work as we thought it would! We got her up and put her at her desk while we got ready for the day. She was bouncing around for a good 45 minutes.
Emma: Mom and dad let me stay up late last night so I decided to wake up extra early to show them how excited I was to stay up late! I went straight to my desk and played for almost an hour before I was ready for breakfast!! Ms. Millie showed up and I was already at work! I feel a long nap coming this afternoon but for now it's time to play!
Note how dark it is outside... too early Pip!
Brad and I were both home this morning so Em joined us in the bed for her morning bottle. I think she likes it in the big bed!
I worked last night so Brad and Emma went to church. We then started on our Christmas cheer project. We made cookies for all of the neighbors. We got about 20 bags in and then it started to rain. Alas, lots of left over cookies! Em enjoyed walking around the neighborhood and visiting with everyone. She seems to get a little shy when we approach strangers. I think I like that quality!
Mom and Dad were some cookie making machines today. I got to see in my high chair and eats puffs while they finished up the cookies. We then loaded up and set out on a stroll. All the neighbors liked to grab my feet and comment on the 1 curl that is standing up on top of my head. Come on mom, can't we brush this thing down?? Mom and Dad then let me open a present early! The best part was the wrapping paper!!! I hope I get lots of paper for Christmas.
Brad and Em after the Christmas Eve Service. Santa came and sent me a picture of his work while I was at work.
Emma: We went to church tonight! I know it's not Sunday Morning so I'm assuming something big is happening! I went to the nursery and Ms. Kizzie let me look down from the nursery while everyone was holding a candle. It looked like a giant birthday cake! Then dad told me it WAS someones birthday tomorrow!!!
Happy Birthday Jesus!!! I got off around 7AM and Em was still asleep when I got home! She work up shortly after and we brought her in to see what gifts Santa left for her. I was expecting a big reaction.... didn't get it... but she had a heck of a time playing all morning. We then loaded up and headed to Winnfield. On our arrival it appeared my mom and dad were not feeling well at all. Em was pooped from her morning of playing so we decided to open gifts tomorrow hoping everyone feel better!
12/26/2012: Emma: Pops and Granna seem to be feeling a little better today! I heard everyone opened presents today but I was too tired to open mine. I opted out for the nap option instead. I hope Syd doesn't open all of mine!! Before and after my nap I played all day.. you see that is why I was so tired during present time. I figure those presents can wait, but playing with G and P can not wait!
Tonight mom and dad went out to eat.....without me. That is A ok with me though, I got to stay home with Aunt Lauren, G and P! We played and I got to stay up waaaay past my bedtime!!!!
There are cats in Winnfield too!!!!!!!!
