All About Emma

Baby Emma. God's little surprise! We were soooo done at 3, but God had other plans. There is no doubt He had her for our family and I can't wait to see her grow up and see who she is going to become.

She is THE sweetest baby. I like to think that God knew that if He was going to surprise me with #4, He was going to have to give me an easy baby and He did. She is the most laid back little thing. She never cries. The only time she does is if she's poopy or tired. And she smiles all the time! She has the absolute cutest grin. Her whole face lights up when she smiles.

She loves to play with the kids. She screams with joy when one of them walks into the room. It's so precious. I love to see that she loves them even as little as she is.

Everyone comments on what a sweet and cute baby she is. The nursery workers at our church love having her. It is such a blessing when they ask about her if she's been sick or tell me when I drop her off that they are excited that she's there. (I'm sure they love having one who doesn't ever cry!)

She is starting to become more independent and makes her will known. She has started really trying to crawl. She gets her legs up and moves them, but she can't figure out to pick her head up and leave her hands down! It's the funniest sight. She scoots her head along the floor for a few inches and then gives up. She'll get it pretty soon and then it's look out!

And she is cracking me up with her yelling! She has discovered her voice and she's not afraid to use it! I have been pretty laxed about working sign language with her. I have used a few signs with the other kids to make it easier on them so they don't get so frustrated trying to communicate. I need to start working with her more. She seemed to understand "more" tonight. And that's a big one to be able to use. I think she'll catch on pretty quickly.

I can't believe she's going to be 9 months in 4 more days! She'll be 1 in 3 months! It's amazing how time flies.

She my fourthborn, surprise of all surprises, sweet, innocent, happy, laidback, precious Emma Noelle.
