I am now the proud wife of a Masters graduate! Todd had his Graduation from Keller Grad school this past weekend, it was a great time. We celebrated by going out to dinner at The Harmon and having a party in honor of Todd the next day, however it seemed more like a party for baby Emily. She was the star of the party! That little girl got passed from one person to the next, and let me tell you I was one stressed out Mommy! It made me realize that she is still so tiny and fragile! My motherly instinct has kicked into high gear! Emily also got to meet her Great Grandma Barb (GG) who is here visiting from California. Todd and I are also celebrating our two year wedding anniversary on Monday! Hard to believe it has been that long since our wedding day. It has been a very eventful 2 years:)
Today Emily is one month old! Can't believe 4 weeks have already gone by. Todd and I have learned plenty with our little love bug at home with us. We have learned that we can survive on very little sleep, we LOVED sleep and sleeping in on the weekends. That has changed, however Emily is currently sleeping 5-6 straight hours through the night, WOW! What a blessing that has been for me, while during the week I'm the one who gets up with Emily during the night, since Todd has to get up early for work. Another thing we have learned is that we know our daughter better than anyone else ever will. We know how she likes to sleep at night, different positions she likes to be held, how she loves to stretch out and watch her horsey, and how she loves being a naked baby at night before we put her in her P.J.'s for bed. We learned that just like during pregnancy, people still give unsolicited advice, and to take it with a grain of salt. :) Emily has been smiling more and more every day, you can tell her eyes are really trying to focus on certain things. She has also been making lots of new noises, coos and cries are changing day by day. She still has not had a big full out crying episode ( still waiting for that one). I've enjoyed spending my days with my little girl, I can already tell a strong bond is being created and she sure does love her mommy:) It is a great feeling when she immediately stops crying when I pick her up and rock her. She also likes it when I sing to her. Emily's Great Grandma Stone will be here next week from California, and we look forward to spending some time with her. Great family memories will be made this summer!
