She had high hopes. Those hopes were dashed oh so quickly.
To be fair to carrots, oatmeal isn’t a winner either.
So much happened in July and August!
Hanging out with Daddy and Daniel Tiger
Helping Daddy count his money in Star Wars Monopoly… before Mommy won it all.
Ready for a summer garden party!
We got a small backyard pool. Emma loved it!
Helping Daddy get the mail
I need a bigger face so I can smile more! More more more!
Kayaking with family! It was amazing (and very wet!) fun!
Thunderclouds came and crashed the kayaking party, but not before we’d had all our fun!
For both daddy and daughter.
There was much rejoicing! Many thanks to our excellent hosts Chrissy and Bret!
Daddy’s watch was first on Emma’s entertainment itinerary.
- We don’t feed her lemons, we promise.
Ewww! Boy kisses!
Even Great Grandma got in on the popit action!
The parachutes were awesome this year!
Jason and Trevor enjoyed the fireworks
Someone got a little sleepy…
Sometimes the autofocus didn’t quite choose wisely, but it’s a cool effect.
The aerials were fantastic!
What a beautiful day! Thank you too all who shared it with us!
Isn’t my dress just the prettiest? Thank you Grandma van der Horst!
Smiling is my favourite!
Cousin Marshall loves smiling too!
Here Emma appears with her entertainment director and her head chef.
No! Too much love! It smothers me!
All this adorableness is exhausting…
She was a CHAMPION.
Just look at that smile.
All those wires are attached to stickies on her skin, and all of them had to come off. Only as the last one came off did a little frown appear.
After her EEG, she had a two hour echocardiogram, which is an ultrasound of the heart. She didn’t like being naked covered with cold gel while being pushed and prodded. But she did like her “sweeties,” the sugar-water the tech gave her to keep her happy. Poor darling.
Daddies make for the comfiest pillows. And mattresses.
But she definitely makes her opinion known.
Here she is doing her best impression of Queen Victoria: “We are not amused.”
Just look at that sassy little eyebrow.
And she’s a lady about it too.
Good thing, cause she doesn’t like her carseat very much at all.
Isn’t she just the cutest?
