Ryan and Rocks hit the zoo!

While I was in surgery, a little over a week ago, Ryan had a date with her Aunt Rocks to the ZOO! Aunt Mis was sweet enough to get some pictures of their day. Looks like I missed out!

Ryan came home with some new animals to add to her collection.

She can name every one! Even the "okapi"- I had never heard of it!

(It is the one on the right!)

Daddy loading up Ryan in the convertible!

She was so excited.

Emma's favorite! :-)

He looks hungry!

Ry dancing with the kangaroo!

We didn't get to see the penguins last time we came to the zoo!

SO cool!

Hook 'em baby!

"Ride the horsie!"

She looks so big!

I remember the first time we put her on a carousel,

she looked so tiny!

Happy girls!


Emma's 8 Month Stats

Emma is already 8 months! What the heck?!?!?!?!?

Weight: 17 lbs 10 oz
Height: 30 inches!
Eating: three to four bottles- usually 20-24 ounces total. She almost always eats 6-7 oz first thing in the morning and at bedtime but during the day she sometimes only wants a couple of ounces. I think it is because she eats so much solid food! She is a piggy! She loves animal crackers, avocados, broccoli and blueberries. She is still loving the organic purees. This month she has been eating a few new puree combos cauliflower/salmon, chicken/butternut squash, avocado/mango. Yum yum!
Sleeping: Same awesome sleep habits! I cannot even remember the last time I had to get up in the night because of Emma. I think it may have been over a month ago. She is the best!
Size: 12 month clothing, Size 3 diapers, Size 3 shoes
Newest Accomplishments: pulling to stand (she started doing this right after I did her 7 month stats), cruising on the furniture, she says "mama" (and not just making the sound, but at me!)- she will crawl after me when I get home from work saying it until I pick her up!, clapping her hands, 2 teeth, going to town on her horsie, crawling up stairs.

Big sister wanted her picture on the rug too!
Emma's Great Gramma sent her this hat.
So, we did a quick photo shoot!

My fave!

And, my second favorite.

Such a little dumpling!

Big girl

She was so proud that she could make it rock.

Into the toy bucket!

Of course, Ryan wanted a turn.


Reading books with Mamaw

Her favorite stuffed animal, Zebra!

Since Ryan doesn't sleep in a crib anymore, she likes to play in Emma's .

Bath time is so fun- so glad they have each other!

Copy cat

Emma always crawls around at Mamaw and Pa's with this baby's head in her mouth!

Like this!

Her favorite thing to chew on is my IPhone cover

I can't imagine loving her anymore than I do.

It is hard to believe that when Ryan was around this age is when I got

pregnant with Emma! I am so glad it happened, but I can't imagine

already being pregnant again!
