January 2009

Emily is 13 months old now. She has turned into such a little princess. She is a chatter box and is so funny. It's neat to see her personality finally coming out. She got 4 teeth this past month - all on the top. Poor thing! She is really cruising around the furniture, I bet she will walk anytime now. She loves to be tickled! She loves playing and snuggling with her daddy.

We went to Portland to visit Kalli, Mark and the boys in January. Emily and I flew out together on Saturday morning. Kory was already out there because he was in California for the NAMM show - more photos to follow on that one. Then we stayed until the following Friday. Emily did great on the flights-she was a bit of a handful for me by myself - but we managed!!! We had a wonderful time in Portland. We enjoyed seeing the boys and Mark and Kalli. We also got to see Kurt and Gretchen a little bit - but weren't able to see Rory. He wasn't feeling well, so we didn't get to see him. Hope to see you soon buddy!!! Kurt showed us around downtown Portland and we got to see his work which was fun. We also went to VooDoo donuts which is a riot! Kalli took us to the pool one day with Reese and Tyler. Emily loved to swim! We went on some walks. Kalli and Mark even babsat Em overnight while Kory and I took a trip up to Washington to see the waterfalls and to stay overnight at the Bonneville Resort - it was a mineral springs resort - we enjoyed some wonderful spa treatments! Thanks Aunt Kalli and Uncle Mark!!! I even got to stop in and see our Covance clinic in Portland. It was lots of fun to finally meet the people I've worked with over the phone for the last 2 years.
Here are some pictures from the last month. I also put in the link to the rest of them.
Here is a picture of our cranky kid. Everyone said she never cries, so we had to take a picture of her throwing a fit!!!
Here we are Portland:

Here we are at the coast - Kory, Em, Teresa and Kalli. We had such a nice time. It was a beautiful day.
I love this pic of Kory and Em
Here's the waterfall that we went to on our way to the mineral springs. It was so pretty!
Here's Kory riding AJ's scooter
This is the "stash" where they store all the bottle caps and wine corks. It's pretty fun to throw them up there.
Mark and Kalli - thanks for letting us hang out for the week! We had a blast!!
I took this one just yesterday. She loves bath time.
Oh! One last thing - Emme is going to have a BOY cousin in June. Aunt Kacey and Uncle Tony found out that we have a little Zander Luke Vosberg joining the family. She had her 20 week ultrasound and all looked good. Can't wait to meet him!!!

One Year Check-up

Emily just had her 1 year check up today. Everything went well. She handled all the shots okay - gosh that is hard to watch!! I'm glad Daddy came and helped me with her. I always feel so bad when they keep poking her. They are so compassionate though, that it makes it much easier to handle.

Here's the stats:
Height: 28.75" (36% percentile)
Weight: 19 lb 10oz (25% percentile)
Head: 46.5 cm (86%)

So we still have a little peanut with a big head :)
No switching to the big girl car seat yet - but we are close. Emme better hurry up and gain some weight so we can ship Baby Marquardt the car seat and bases!!!
