She's a mover!

Here's a couple short videos of Em moving. She's getting quite efficient at scooting backwards wherever she wants to go. As soon as she figures out how to go forward she's going to be gone. Lord, help me, I havne't baby-proofed the house yet!

Here's the push up.

Swinging Time

Emily hit the swings over at Beth's house and had a great time. Thankfully we got some cute pics of it. Check out those chubby arms!

This is going to be a great summer full of firsts!

7 Months Today

Em is 7 months today! She's so ready to crawl, I can just tell. She's doing push ups (see pic below) and rolling and scooting all over the place. I can't believe that she's growing so fast!Big Bro just had to take some shots of his own on his camera.
Here's the push up that I mentioned. She first did this at my friend, Beth's house. When I saw it I had to laugh.

So Emily's hitting some milestones, like sitting up and eating solids. Here's the proof....

This is one of the first times I fed her veggies--Green Beans. She loved them, and peas and carrots and squash. The only problem is that she'll only eat for me!!! What do I do with that?She's also mastered sitting up. It's so fun to let her sit and play with toys. She's probably getting sick of the Exersaucer by now.
She really loves Musical Baby and Baby Einstein, she's watching it on the TV in these two pics. Her face says it all.
She's growing up so fast!
