Princess Emery is 16 weeks old!

Sweet Princess Emery,

You are 16 weeks old today and I still can't believe you've been with us that long! It seemed like we waited and waited for your arrival and now that is just a distant, beautiful memory.

You seem to be changing so much, getting bigger, stronger, and much more independent. You do not like to lay down anymore, you want to sit up and see the world around you. I think if you had it your way, you'd be right in the middle of the action! You are intrigued by your big brother and love to just watch him. I have no doubt that in just a few short months you'll be driving him nuts!

Your giggles are precious and we spend a lot of time trying to get them out of you. They are like a coveted prize that everyone is after! Your smile is contagious and your big, chubby cheeks adorable. That is definitely a trait that you and Chase both got from Daddy.

Your sleep has been better again and you are waking up once at night. Except for last night, it was pretty much awful, but we don't get into that! I'm just hoping tonight will be better!

Of course nothing is perfect, but we have certainly settled into a life as a family of four pretty good in my book. We have our moments, but I wouldn't trade it for the world!

I love you Princess,

***I am grateful for
1) 16 wonderful weeks
2) my bed, it's totally calling my name
3) cold weather, I love the cold, but the rain is coming, not so big on that part
4) cuddles and kisses
5) taxes are almost done!
