8 Months Old

Emily will be 8 months old tomorrow...I can't believe it. She has grown into such a beautiful little girl. She is now 18 lbs, but she still fits in to her 3 - 6 month pants! She has no waist and no butt...it's so cute!!

She's now eating baby food - we've gone through all the 1's and 2's. We even gave her a few pieces of banana this weekend and she seemed to like that. I have this extreme fear of her choking, so I'm a little delayed on giving her people food yet. Every time she has something in her mouth I freak out to make sure she swallows and is still breathing!! I'm hoping it's just new-mommy-syndrome and that it will soon pass. I'm starting to annoy myself!!

Em does seem to like people watching, dog watching, TV watching, etc...more than eating her baby food. I seem to remember being moved to the opposite side of the table as a little girl so that I could no longer look out the window...I think we have another daydreamer on our hands!

You will also see in the pictures that Emme seems to find Daddy's nose quite tasty. We're not sure how that started, but all of sudden she started chewing on the end of his nose. She even chewed on his chin once, but we didn't catch that one in a photo yet. So needless to say - Emme thinks her daddy's nose tastes good - hey whatever keeps her entertained!!

We are getting ready for our big airplane ride trip to Texas. We leave on Sept 10th. Me, Em and Aunt CeCe (Casey for those of you who don't know the auntie lingo). It should be fun - say a few prayers for us that Em behaves herself!! I'm sure she will. Hopefully no large bowel movements while in flight - those airplane bathrooms do not have a fancy diaper changing station!!!

We've had a great summer and really can't believe it's almost labor day weekend already. Thanks to everyone for all your support the last few months. It's meant more than you know. We are on a good track - heading in the right direction with a beautiful daughter. We couldn't ask for more.

Here is her 8 month photo link: http://photos.walmart.com/shareethumbnailshare/AlbumID=32675759/albumcount=1/p=483251219711127206/l=11759430/g=3242809/cobrandOid=1011/otsc=SYE/otsi=SALB/pns/share/p=483251219711127206/l=11759430/g=3242809/cobrandOid=1011/otsc=SYE/otsi=SALB
