12 months

One year ago today little Miss Emery Lane came into our lives.
Emery Milestones this month:
31 inches
20 pounds 12 ounces (50%)
Head Circum: 46 cm (75%)

You started walking about 2 weeks before you turned 1. It was gradual at first and then about a week before your birthday you were walking everywhere! We love that you are walking. You were into everything before so this didn't change much.
You got your top 2 molars. They didn't seem to hurt nearly as bad as your bottom ones but you were still pretty fussy. You now have 12 teeth.
You said your first real word, "Balloon" Maddix got balloons for his birthday and you are obsessed! You wake up in the morning and literally the first thing you say is balloon and then want to play with one the rest of the day.
You also say: Momma, Dada, up, uh-oh, balloon.
You mimic what a dog says all the time. Aunt Coley came down with her new puppy and you were in Love! You followed her around all day and loved to play with her.
Emery loves:
Her Silky and Binky, so obsessed!
Maddix, she follows him around all day long and loves to fight over everything with him!
The bath. As soon as she hears the water turn on she hurries as fast as she can to get there.
Food. She is such a good eater. Loves watermelon, grapes, blueberries, cereal, cheese, asparagus, squash, pretty much everything!
To Play peek a boo!
Sing songs, loves when she is upset and I sing, it calms her down.
To be crazy! This girl is into everything and is all over the place. She doesn't stay still for 1 minute and is a climber!
Her dolls, balls, stroller, and her rocking horse!
To Dance. Whenever she hears music come on she starts to dance.
Animals. She is a little scared of the noises they make but loves to look at them.

Emery Hates:
Sharing! She is so not good at this.
Being left alone. If she leaves the room it's ok, but if you leave her she loses it!
When she is done eating she starts throwing her food everywhere!

Holding you for the first time...
Ready for your close up!

We could not feel more blessed and proud to be your parents!
We Love you!
Happy Birthday baby Girl!

I cannot believe that I have a 3 year old.
We had a great day today and Maddix loved every minute of turning "Fwee!"

I seriously remember it like it was yesterday. How could this little boy grow up so fast.

Maddix you are seriously one of the cutest, funniest, smartest kids I know. You make me laugh constantly and I love that you are such a sweet boy. You are so tender hearted. I love the way you run, smile, the gap in your teeth, that you still sleep with your binky and silky, that up until tonight you have slept in a crib and that you still cuddle and love to give me hugs and kisses.
You love all kinds of cars and are obsessed with airplanes. You love anything that moves and you love to dance. Anytime music comes on you start shaking your booty and mom and dad have to dance too.
You are such a good big brother. Emery loves you so much and you love her too. You love to play with her and share your toys with her. I can't wait till she gets a little older and you too can play even more together.
You love going to school and love to learn new things. You know all your colors, can count to ten and know most of your ABC' get a little mixed up with LMNOP.
You can ride a bike with no training wheels. We are still practicing starting and stopping but you can ride for quite a long time.
We went miniature golfing today with Cohen, Zander, Uncle Dustin and Aunt Lisa.
This is your new Jeep. You love driving it and Emery loves to be the hot babe in the front seat!
Here's your new bike, no Training wheels!!
First night sleeping in your big boy bed! We'll see how this goes!

We Love you Maddix and Happy 3rd Birthday!
