Life has been pretty ordinary lately and I’m still super busy. I’m trying to catch up on my editing and I’ve still got quite a ways to go.
Mother’s day weekend was nice, though. We spent the weekend at my parents’ house, as usual. Friday I had lunch with my friend Rebecca since I was passing through Metairie and had some pictures to drop off to her. I also took a trip to Whole Foods to pick up some fruit and veggies to make baby food, but as can be expected, I haven’t had any time to do it! Saturday afternoon my sister, Emelyn and I went to lunch with my mom at Cheesecake Bistro, it was pretty yummy! Later that evening I had a bridal shoot for one of my brides who got married in March. I really love doing bridal portraits after the wedding, you don’t have to worry about the sheet and keeping the dress clean!
Mother’s day was pretty laid back – Popeye’s with my family for lunch, then headed back to MC. My laptop was my Mother’s Day / Anniversary / Bday present, but I got some beautiful flowers and cards from Wade. He did some cleaning around the house and we had a yummy dinner of homemade white pizza.
Tuesday was our anniversary and again, it was pretty laid back, nothing special. Wade gave me another charm for my Pandora bracelot and I spent the day in Lafayette because Emelyn had a doctor’s appointment. He cooked us a yummy dinner of filet topped with feta cheese, homemade mashed potatoes and green beans picked from our garden.
Emelyn’s dr’s appointment went well … she’s 22lbs 14oz and 28″ long. Still off the charts! She’s doing everything she should be doing developmentally, though she isn’t really babbling much. She screeches and coos, but not really any syllables yet. The dr said if she isn’t doing it by her next appointment, then we’ll worry. She also had to get three shots :-( We had a nice visit with my Aunt Debbie later that day. She’s doing well … her arm is healing from the infection and surgery and she’s getting around with her walker. Hayden was glad to see her, he always loves to visit with Debbiedee.
Here are some picture I’ve taken of Emelyn over the last few days, she’s working on a few new skills lately. She’s already trying to pull up! When I put her in her pack and play, she pulls up on the side, but only onto her knees (our bedroom and bathroom are a white balance nightmare and these photos are pretty much un-edited)
She’s also scooting all over the place … she gets all the way up on her toes and pushes forward onto her belly
A couple of Hayden getting out of the tub
She’s starting to transition from sitting to crawling, though it takes her a while. Her leg gets stuck under her, but she eventually gets it
I was trying to get some pictures in her cute $4 Walmart dress, but she was tired of taking pictures LOL. On the bright side, you can see her two bottom teeth pretty well!
Trying to pull up on the toy box
And a few from today … we call this her “chewy bug”
As temperamental as she is, she’s such a happy baby!
Trying to crawl to the toy, but you can see her foot is stuck under her tummy
