Happy Half Year!

Well, the pretty girl has made it a whole 6 months!
Her 1st beach trip to Hilton Head

I took her to the doctor for her 6 month well check Friday morning... She is healthy as can be, just little. She weighed in at 12 lbs. 12 oz. and 24 in. long which puts her in only the 5th% for her age. I, of course, panicked when I heard that. The doctor told me not to worry, she will grow sooner or later!

Emily had her first food in April. After a few days of cereal, we were able to try carrots. She loved them!We have tried it all now and her favorites are apples, bananas, and carrots. We went up to Charles and Debra's for Easter. Emily had just had her 4 month doctor appointment and was not feeling too hot, but the Easter Bunny still visited! Her big accomplishment this month was holding herself up and rolling over. It kind of scared her at first, but she got the hang of it. Don't blink when you watch the video, she rolls fast!


I was lucky enough to be able to take 12 weeks off from work on maternity leave with Emily. It was a great time for us to get to know each other and for Chris and I to figure out what in the world we were doing. Early in January, we had a huge snowstorm (huge for here anyway) and were snowed in for almost a week. We spent a lot of time visiting with family also. My grandparents came from Texas and stayed with us for a week in February.

In March, she started using her Bumbo seat to practice sitting up.

We worked hard on a Valentine's Day treat for Daddy!

It's June already?!?

Wow, I just went to check the blog... been a while, huh?? Since I last posted in November, A LOT has happened. I am just going to go month by month to get us all caught up.

So... December 2010

I wen to the doctor on the 7th for my check and she said all looked great. We decided to go ahead and induce the following Thursday.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

What a fun time of year! I love spending Thanksgiving with wonderful family and friends and then decorating for Christmas. We had a great Thanksgiving up at Charles and Debra's house. I love that my parents come there too, it is really nice to be together. Emily enjoyed the Thanksgiving feast, and I did not deprive her at all :)
I will be 37 weeks on Tuesday, so we are T-minus 3 weeks to meeting Emily. I have her bag all packed and everything ready, so I am just ready to meet her.

We got the house all decorated inside this weekend as well. We went with white lights on the tree this year and I love the looks of it.

Another fun thing we did over the break was go to the Falcons game today. Charles won a Community Quarterback award for his work at the clinic. We were able to go down on the field and watch warm ups, sit in some wonderful seats, and see Charles get recognized on the field and jumbo screen!

Happy Halloween!!

I guess it's time for an update, huh? It has been a busy few weeks, but I like it that way. This last trimester is FLYING by!! I cannot believe that we only have 7 weeks left. I am getting so excited to meet her and see her sweet face. We went back for take two of the 3D ultrasound and Emily was even more stubborn than the first time. She rolled over so we could only see the back of her head and wouldn't move. Oh well, it was still fun to watch her breathe and see her little heart beating. I went to the doctor today and she said everything was looking great. Emily was head down (which explains the sore ribs from her little kicks).

I had my first shower at Katie's last weekend. It was so nice to see everyone and get some goodies for Emily. I am so lucky to have such wonderful people in my life!

 For Halloween, my team and I dressed up as the characters from There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed a Bat. Guess who the lady was? I didn't go overboard though because we had Fall Festival that night also. Highlight of the day... one of my students was dressed up as a doctor. He walked in first thing in the morning and asked, "Mrs White, you ready to have that baby yet because I can help deliver her." HAHAHAHA... I love my job!

our stubborn baby girl at 32 weeks

Well, we went today for our 3D ultrasound. It was really awesome to get to see Emily again and see how much she has grown. And when I say grown, I mean it! She is measuring 4 pounds and 12 ounces now, which is in the 69th percentile. We could have a big baby on our hands! As with all of our other ultrasounds, she decided to be stubborn and not let us see much of her face. She had her hands up covering her eyes and kept hiding behind the placenta. We did get a couple of good shots though. We also got a DVD of the whole ultrasound. My favorite part was watching her practice breathing. It was so neat to watch her little tummy move up and down! They let us reschedule again for next week, so we will see if she wants to be any more cooperative then!
You can see 1 side of her face and her little hand covering the other side

Her profile. She is sucking her thumb :o)

This is her skinny little leg and big ol' foot... Looking more like her daddy in this one!
