Hi Cutie Emma!
Nana and Grumpy were over on Tuesday night to have supper with us for Mommy's birthday. Her birthday was actually the next day. We had a great ham and scallop potato supper. You had some ham... mmmmm. Nana made a birthday cake for Mommy. You helped Mommy blow out the candles. Well, you didn't actually blow out any candles. Maybe you can help me blow out the candles on my birthday cake.
Grumpy was lifting you up and playing with you before they left. You were giving them both lots of kisses. Several times, you also turned away from their kisses like a bad little pup :)
For a couple days before the supper, you hadn't been eating or drinking very much, probably because you weren't feeling ... you had a cold. We were trying hard to get you to eat and drink for a couple days. I dropped you off at Nana and Grumpy's in the afternoon and they took you home to our house to start making supper. They bought you a small bag of cheesies. You almost all of them. We were so impressed. You sure loved them. You were eating them three at a time.
Oh yeah, later that same evening, I sat down with you on the couch to give you a bottle before your bedtime. You grabbed the bottle, tipped it up and started drinking. This was the first time I ever saw you do this. You've briefly held your bottle before, but you've never really held it up properly. Usually you just don't bother to hold it, even when we try to get you to do it. You might rest your hands on the bottle, tap the bottle with your hands, touch our faces, or just have your hands by your side. You sure are growing up :)
I love you baby girl!
