How is it possible that my littlest angel is already 9 months old? Baby Em had her 9 month well child check on Thursday. She's on the same track as her big sis. Weighing in at 20lbs 1oz  and measuring 28 1/2" long. Percentage speaking...80th% for weight and 100th% for length. It seems as though big E always has the same percentages. They are one in the same! There are moments that I look at Emma and see the spitting image of Elly and other times I look at her and think she is all her own...looks wise :) She is full of vocal play with her favorite consonant vowel combo being Mamamama. I love it! I remind Kris daily that she obviously loves her mamamama the most :)  She is crawling all over the place and pulling up on everything in sight. I caught her yesterday STANDING at the coffee table! Sweet girl also has a mouthful of teeth. The bottom two came first followed by the top two incisors. I can see the two front about to poke through. That sweet little smile brings a smile to my face every time I see it! My sweet little vampire :) I can't believe how fast time is flying by. I try to soak it all in but at times it seems as though I can't keep up. In three short months we will be having her first birthday! I just can't handle it! I decided to celebrate our babe's 9 months with a little photo sesh in the tub tonight!   

Oh the personality of this one! Loves her baby Em 99% of the time. She had an early bedtime after chucking a big ole bag of clothes at sister's head. I've got to say...girls got some aim! It was like one of those carnival games where you throw the bean bags at the little clown heads trying to knock them over. Soon enough she'll learn to do that when mommy and daddy are NOT watching!

Dusting it off...

...the blog that is. I'm a little ashamed that it's been two+ months since I last blogged on here! All I can say is that I am oh so BUSY! The photography business pretty much took up all my free time over the last few months. Something had to give and it was this good ole blog of mine. Well, I'm back now and I promise to do better :) 

Elly sure knows how to make her daddy proud...Do they allow tutu's in the LPGA? If Elly has anything to say about it they do! 

Let me out there! I want to play too!

Sweet cousins on Christmas Eve...waiting for the big guy in red to arrive

*I'm in the process of transferring pictures from one place to another. Loving our new Mac...not so much loving learning the ropes of a new computer AND new editing software! More Christmas pictures to come soon, I promise! AND a special blog post for Donna aka Howell. Your letter made my day and Elly made sure to follow through on your request...much to Baby Em's dismay ;)
