Princess Emery is 7 months old - almost!

Sweet Princess Emery,

You are almost 7 months old now and it just amazes me at how fast time is flying. I totally missed your update last week and think that with time going this fast, it's time to start doing monthly updates.

So much has been going on. You had your ears rechecked on Friday and I'm so happy to say that they are all clear!!!! Two rounds of antibiotics, but all that matters is they look good. You are now weighing in at 18.2 pounds, that's almost triple your birth weight! You are getting to be such a big girl.

You would really, really, really love to crawl, but you just can't get it quite yet. I think you are pretty close and have no doubt that this time next month you will have figured it out. Even though you can't crawl, you can get to anything and anyone you want.

You have got your great-grandfather totally wrapped around your finger and it's absolutely adorable. Whenever we go into Nana and Paw's house he'll say, "Hey Puddin!" and you immediately turn his way and flash him a huge grin. I have feeling that you and him are going to be great friends!

Yesterday was Mother's Day and we had you dedicated at church. You were the cutest baby up there and everyone just oohed and awed over your picture. We are so blessed to have you as our daughter and so grateful to know that God will be in your life. It is our prayer that you will know him and love him as much as your brother does.

Here are some pictures from our first Mother's Day together!

Hello?? Can you hear me?

You and your Big Brother, he loves you so
