Catching up

My computer hasn't been working for the past three weeks- oh how I've missed it! I've been using Kevin's computer but haven't been able to blog because all my pictures are on my computer. So I have a lot of catching up to do.

Here's what we've been up to:

We've been doing lots of cheering for Auburn!

Touchdown Auburn!

Thanks Natalie for the super cute Auburn dress! :)

I promise Jackson is a happy boy! He was having so much fun with this chef hat and of course I turn on the camera and he quits smiling and laughing.


Last week ended up being a big week for Emmy. She turned seven months and accomplished some new milestones! A couple of days before officially turning seven months she rolled from her back to her belly for the first time. She rolled from her belly to her back at four months but wouldn't go the other way until last week. Now she does it all the time and seems to tolerate being on her tummy a little better. Then later in the week I went into her room one morning and found her sleeping on her belly! I was shocked but glad to see it simply because she has hated being on her tummy so much. Now she can easily go back and forth from tummy to back and back to tummy with little effort.

Emmy at seven months:

Up until last week Emmy was still taking three naps a day. The day she turned seven months she decided she was done with her evening nap. I have been ready for her to give it up just because it makes it difficult to go out in the evening. But I put her in her bed just like always and she just didn't fall asleep. I decided to try again the next day just to be sure and again she didn't go to sleep. So she now officially takes two naps. Her morning nap is usually 1.5-2 hours and her afternoon nap is usually 1-1.5 hours. She goes to bed at 6:30 now that she dropped her evening nap and still sleeps until 7 and sometimes a little later. I'm hoping her afternoon nap will start stretching out a little longer and then her bedtime can move back to 7. Either way I'm not complaining because she is such a good sleeper.

And last week was Emmy's first time on a swing. Of course she loved it! Now that the weather has turned I'm excited to spend some time at the park. Jackson loves it and Emmy did so great in the swing!

And Jackson wanted in the baby swing because Emmy was:

I just think Emmy's face is so funny in this picture. Not sure what she's looking at:

So that's basically it. I think I'm all caught up!

War Eagle!

We were so excited about kicking off football season this weekend. So glad that Auburn won their first game- we weren't sure that was going to happen!

And the weather was beautiful! It ended up being a hot day but the early morning breeze made it so nice!

Love these pictures of Emmy:

Have you noticed how expensive game day attire can be? Pretty expensive...I was excited to be able to make this dress for Emmy for only a few dollars! :)
