New meaning to "Lil' Squirt"

Another week and we're all still here. Morgan went back to work this week and boy, I never realized how time consuming it is to try to run errands with a little baby. For starters you have to make sure she's dry, fed and packed and by the time you've taken care of one thing another needs to be attended. Then there's the stupid baby carrier. We ran around town yesterday and my back is still aching from lugging that infant car seat around. Today we're trying the baby sling that I made and so far so good. It's a lot lighter than the carrier and I can still use both hands (I'm actually wearing it right now and she's loving it!). We might have found our new solution! :)

Emma is getting more alert by the day and has a new talent...for peeing on men. I never knew little girls could squirt, but Morgan swears she's peed on him twice and last week she managed to get my dad out the side of her diaper when he was holding her. Poor man, his shirt was soaked on the front. Hehehehehe. Let's just hope she keeps her hydraulic talents trained on men and that someday she outgrows it...but not just yet. *wink* I'm having fun laughing at Morgan and Emma together.

More pictures coming this dad is scanning them for me, so sit tight and check back in a bit. Till then!

We're all doing well

All is well in the house as Emma gets settled in. Morgan took the week off work so we could all get situated after his mom left. We need to learn to fend for ourselves more but to be honest, we're just enjoying the time together.

On Monday, Emma went on her first shopping trip. Gymboree was having a huge sale since it's after Christmas and we went and bought her some cute little girly outfits. She now has a little pink and cream striped jumper with bunnies on it, a pink-plum colored courdory dress with bloomers, an "Angel" sweater, and another little girly sleeper for this summer. She's adorable and I can't wait to dress her up in her new stuff. My Uncle Gary and Aunt Connie also sent us some really cute pink and purple onesies that she'll look cute in. As much as I said I wanted a boy, I'm so happy with a little girl. How else would I get away with putting her in four outfits per day? ;)

Also, she's been holding her head up. Not for long periods and not all the time, but when you put her up on your shoulder to burp her she'll push up and lift her head up and look around. Wow! I didn't think such little babies could do that.

Best for last, I think she's learning her name. If you say, "Emma" she'll start looking around until she finds your face. *sigh* I'm so happy with her and Morgan is completely in love with our new baby girl. We really are so lucky. Until later....

P.S. Matt- I'm at the library writing this and Emma is really enjoying running around in her Chariot. :) Thanks again for such a cool gift.
