Our First Month

We can't believe that it has been a month since we welcomed our precious Emory into this world. I can't get over how much Emory has changed over this past month. Last Wednesday was a big changing day for her. Emory's umbilical cord finally fell off that day and the change began. She was wide awake on the way to church so we decided to take her to her own class that evening. They said she stayed awake the whole time, but wasn't too interested in the whole thing. Other changes that came: she's getting chubbier, going longer between meals, losing her baby hair, and smiling more and more. I got in the car after church and began complaining to Aaron about how quickly the changes are coming. He laughed at me and is already preparing himself for handling my emotions on the first day of Kindergarten. haha...like he's going to be so calm.

We also gave Emory her first bath the next day. She HATED it. She screamed and cried the whole time. I think the shock of the water was a little too much for her. It was a traumatic experience for all three of us. I'm happy to report that her next bath was slightly better. I'm hoping that she will get more and more relaxed with each bath...maybe one day she will even like them.

Enjoying our time

Well I have definitely loved the past 2 1/2 weeks. I can't tell you how much fun motherhood has been for me. We have been getting out more and it's getting a little easier every time. We made it to church on Sunday. She did great and everyone definitely thought she was adorable. She was even introduced for her first time visit. That night our friend, Aaron Watson, was having a concert at the Paramount Theater. It was a perfect event to bring Emory to. Since it was a family show, it was great. I didn't ever think of the noise level until I was holding a 2 week old. It didn't bother her at all and she slept through the whole thing.
We had to get a picture with Aaron at her first concert. Kim, he was a little nervous about holding her. Do we need to keep bringing her over for him to get his practice in before little Jolee arrives? :)

She is growing and changing more and more every day. It makes me sad that she's already changing so much, but makes me excited about what the next day brings.
