Tricks

The last couple of weeks have been so much fun. Emma Kate seems to be learning a new "trick" every single day! Here is what she has been up to:

  • About 2 weeks ago she started feeding herself puffs, and has since started eating cheerios as well (which she loves!).

  • She has started bobbing her head like she's dancing, and she will mimic you if you do it first!

  • She has started clapping her hands, and she thinks it's the funniest thing. I'm not sure what the title of the song is, but we are constantly singing "Clap your hands, all ye people...sing for joy unto the Lord". This is her cue to start clapping...so cute!

  • Last Friday she started crawling for the first time. She would barely crawl from one end of the blanket to the other, and only for a cheerio. I thought about making a sign that said "Will crawl for food" and taking her picture, but she woke up from her nap today and decided she was a big girl now and has been crawling all over the place all afternoon!

  • In addition to crawling she has also figured out how to sit up on her own as well...I think it's definitely time to baby proof!

We are just so proud of our big girl, but it's so funny the range of emotions all these changes bring on! I found myself in tears earlier today because I just can't believe my baby girl is old enough to be crawling. The last nine months have gone by so quickly. God is so faithful and I'm so grateful for each day I get to spend being Emma Kate's mommy!

And of course what would a post be without a picture?! We went to the Tech game on Saturday and decided to test the waters and bring Emma Kate along to see how she would do. She was so quiet and still for about the first 20 minutes just sitting in my lap wide eyed taking it all in. Once she got comfortable she decided to let loose and ham it up for everyone around us...she definitely stole the show! She was clapping and waving and smiling at anyone who looked her way!
