Kory and I have chosen Emily's godparents and wanted to share our choice with everyone.

Her godmother will be her Auntie CeCe (otherwise known as my sister, Casey):

Her godfather will be her cousin Nathan (Kory's sister-Kalli & Mark's oldest son):

We are so excited for Emily to have such special godparents. We know all her aunts, uncles and cousins will be so very special to her, so thank you all for being so wonderful. She is so lucky to have such a wonderful group of people around her.

Her baptism is Sat. April 19th at St. Albert the Great Church in Sun Prairie. Invitations will be sent out in March.

Month 2 Photo Link

Here is the link for the month 2 photos of Emily: http://community.webshots.com/album/562609866LSmFju?vhost=community

I was counting her age by weeks instead of by the date, which is confusing. She was born on Dec. 26th, but was 8 weeks old on Feb. 20th. From here on out, I will just use the date. So on March 26th I will send out the next pictures.

Hope that makes sense!

Happy 8 Weeks!!

Emily is 8 weeks old today...can you believe it? I can't!! She's getting so big. We took her to the Dr today and it went well. She has colic, so that has been really hard for mom and dad. She got 4 vaccines at the Dr's office today, 3 shots and one was liquid in her mouth. She did good..she screamed..that's what is supposed to happen! ha ha

She weighed 8lbs 8oz and is 21" long. Her weight is in the 8th percentile and her length is in the 11th percentile. So she's still a little peanut!!

She's a little difficult tonight, so I don't have much time to write. I just wanted to give an update.

Here I am after I got my shots today. I am beat!!

Yum! I love Bud Light :)

Here I am in my Snuggle Bunny jammies that my daddy bought me for Valentine's Day..yep...we even went to Target all by himself!!

For some reason when I smile, I close one eye! It's still cute though!!

Here I am in my play gym. I'm still not so sure what I think about it. It's a little much for me yet.

Some Family Photos

Kory and I went out for our Valentines Day dinner to Johnny Delmonico's, so since we were dressing up, we decided to take some nice pictures.

Kory also surprised me with tickets to see Daughtry and Bon Jovi in Chicago on Feb. 24th. I can't wait!!!

Emily Smiling

This is me smiling on video:

Happy Valentines Day

Here I am in my two Valentines Day outfits. I wore the first one on Monday and the second one today. Even though I don't wear bibs yet, mommy put it on me just for pictures! Enjoy!

Emily's New Cousin

Cori and Jeff had their ultrasound yesterday to find out if Emily's new cousin will be a boy or a girl. The new baby is expected to arrive in July. Cori and Jeff already have a beautiful almost 2 year old, Mikaiya. I was very happy to hear that they are welcoming another baby girl to their family!! yay!!! I know how much I love my sisters, so I am very excited for Mikaiya to experience that same bond. Emily is also VERY excited!! I told her yesterday and ever since then she has found her smile!! YAY!!! I am so excited. I will try to get it on video since a still picture just doesn't do her adorable smile any justice.

So...sorry to say Dad, you will be surrounded by another beautiful little girl!!! I know you love all us women!
