Scales don't lie

and today the scale said that Emma weighs 17 pounds!! I'm not sure words can properly express how amazing I felt after her doctor's appt today. She gained 2 pounds in 2 months which is the best she's done since the NICU. It was the first time in ages that the doctor used the word "awesome" in the same sentence as "weight gain". He was so thrilled with her development and weight gain and everything that we've been working SO hard on. I loved walking out of there with no concerns and no sick feelings about her weight.
The walking is hilarious. I know I've been begging for her to walk, but damn she has just taken off! She loves to walk and it's all she wants to do all day long. The zoo, mall and restaurants are quite the challenge right now because all she wants to do is walk. She is SO cute and SO proud of herself and her walking around definitely makes her seem so much older.

playing in her "individual" pool in the yard

cutest baby butt!

she's a water baby, she LOVES all forms of water!

In the backyard you don't need a swimsuit :)


beautiful girl

she's finally starting to get into books. Mama was worried!

Daddy was experimenting

Playing in the grass is much more fun now that I can walk!

hooray! That is such great news. I can't wait to see her walking in person sometime this summer. I'll play hooky from work and meet you for a swimming day. :)
