We had Daniel's children squadron Christmas party tonight. We had pancakes and that the kids sang songs and they read a story waiting for Santa come. I was worried that Emma was going to hate sitting on Satnas lap but I was wrong. She was fine and tried to take the present out of his hands. She got a ball that will hopefully help her to crawl. Emma has been rolling over to the Christmas tree and trying to open her gifts so it was fun to see her finally get to open one.

They gave all the kids elf hats. Emma kept hers on for about 5 minutes and than wanted to play with the bell on the end and found it easier to do if she wasn't wearing it.

Emma loved sitting on Santas lap.

They gave all the kids teddy bears she was happy to get one.

The two little girls we watched for a few hours so their parents could get all their stuff moved into their house.

Emma likes to feed herself

She is reading the night before Christmas

Christmas Projects

My mom gave me these cookie jars and I painted them.

When we got our tree I was looking at tree skirts and couldn't believe how much they were. So I came home and went through the fabric I had and made my own.

Emma was outside with us putting up our lights outside and it was kind of cold so I put her coat on her to keep her warm

She loves to play with the decorations. Every time I would put them in the basket she would roll over to it and pull them out one at a time till they were out and than look at me and smile.

We went out and got a tree and got it all decorated last night. I went out the day after Thanksgiving and got presents and I couldn't wait to to put them under the tree. Now all I have to do is make the skirt so I can put them under there. Emma was having fun playing with the bulbs. She had three around her she would reach for them but only pushed them farther away from her. She would go for one and couldn't get it than look up at me and make noise. When I didn't do anything she would go for the one on the other side of her and when she couldn't get it she would make noise. When I still didn't do anything so went for the one behind her and couldn't get that one either so she started to cry. I asked Daniel to help her out and when he looked over to where she was sitting he saw that she was in the middle of a triangle. It was a fun night.


So Emma has been eating rice cereal for about a month and she really likes it. What she doesn't like is how long it takes me to give her some. So she grabs my had and put the spoon in her mouth and doesn't want to give it back.

She is getting used to being with her Daddy. She lets him hold her but gets worried if she can't see me. Yesterday at church she went to him. She was on my lap and was reaching for him so he took her and she did fine with it. So she is slowly getting there. I am loving seeing the two of them together. I am trying to let them get to know each other but I am having a hard time when she cry's to not take her. It is nice to not have to be the only one to go get her when she cry's I just have to remember that I am not the only one that can. It is wonderful having Daniel home but I think it will be a while till I am used to having the help.

We took Emma to the park behind our house. I went down the slide with her and she wasn't sure if she liked it. I think it kind of scared her but she did like the swing. She was smiling and laughing so I had Daniel go get the camera so we got record it.

Daniel's home

So Daniel got home two days ago and it is great having him home. He flew into Lemoore so we didn't have to go far to get him. But it was past Emma's bedtime and she fell asleep on the way there. By the time we got there the plane had already landed so as I was walking in I saw Daniel walking in. Emma was just waking up and not sure where she was. I got her out of the car seat and she just looked around. She just looked at Daniel. We didn't stay at the airport very long. They had food and treats for us and we ate some and left. Daniel gave a buddy a ride to his room and Emma and I stayed home. She was talking and laughing just being very happy. Than Daniel got back she just kind of sat there. She went to bed soon after and woke up in a better mood. She was smiling and talking she even let Daniel see and hear it. She was more comfortable with him but still got worried when I left the room. But we all stayed close together. We went to the store and got some things. It was nice to have help and not have to do everything by myself. Daniel pushed her in the cart and she just watched him. Daniel is great with her. He gave her her bath last night and got her ready for bed. He has been so great with it all. We had a fun day just being together. This morning I was able to leave Emma with Daniel while I got ready and she was fine with him. Daniel had to go to work today so Emma and I get to have our time together. As new things happen I will keep everyone updated.

First diaper change from dad

The internet hasn't been working very well so I wasn't able to update it lately so I will put some pictures up of the last week or so.

Emma trying to see me while I am sitting behind her.

Sitting back and waiting till we have to go pick up daddy.

So out of all the toys on her jumper she likes to try and get the things holding it up.
