I'm still on hiatus, but wanted to share all the cuteness of our girls...esp with my Mom, who might be in need of a granddaughter fix. =0)
Things are really rough right now. We are trying some new AT techniques and I'm hoping within several weeks, we will see a big difference with Eme. My girl is extremely insecure and I think I held her for 7 hours yesterday while catching up on 6 loads of laundry, mopping my floors and cleaning the pool lanai while Daddy took the boys golfing. My arms really hurt today and I'm not sure how long I can keep going at the same pace. I'm tired. Dog tired.
A few new facts: Eme is doing the army crawl and is up on all fours and beginning to get the hang of the crawl. She can also pull herself up to a standing position.
She is still a picky eater somewhat. She hates strawberries, but loves blueberries.
She says, "more (while signing) every.single.minutes" or at least is seems like that.
She just wants more, more of anything and everything. She is filling out and getting some meat on her bones.
She won't go to sleep till around 11 and is up at 8:30. Her naps are usually only 20 minutes after I spend an hour trying to get her down. She wakes up full of anxiety and stressed. She will nap in the ergo if I keep going though, it's just I need the time without her strapped to me.
Sometimes in life, you meet someone that just *gets* you all the way around. To have met Colleen on the journey to our daughters was just the first connection that we made, now it's just icing on the cake with the *added* bonus of getting our girls together. Our tastes are very similar & you can tell in our girls clothing. My house was full of lots of noise with 5 kids running around, a dog that won't stay out of the pool and ipods blaring from every angle. There was lots and lots of laughter & lots and lots of tears. Thank you Col for bringing Hannah down for a fun weekend, for being exactly the friend I needed. It's all so surreal that Eme~Grace was here with us this time, we both must have said that a zillion times and just uploading the pics made me say it again. Dreams do come true.
I love ya dearly and can't wait to see you in Sept.
