Emma’s 10 Month Update

***Below was written around the 10 month mark and I got so busy that I never finished til now***


I can’t believe the only time I ever update this blog is when I force myself to do Emma’s monthly updates. That just tells you how busy being a parent is!! Emma has been a little under the weather and extra clingy so it’s been ultra time consuming lately. I’m so tired!!! But I know if I don’t get this update in I’ll forget everything. Don’t worry, I am just doing these updates for her 1st year. I am doing a Project Life album for her first year and I am SO behind on that….this helps me remember for when I catch up later. Thanks for sticking with me…I am sure these updates are probably boring for people who don’t really know me…maybe year 2 will be easier? I can only dream right? :)

At the beginning of February I was put on a jury case so I got to spend a bunch of time with Emma. It was SOO nice and totally made me wish I worked part time. I took her to the park, went shopping with her, and it made me wish that maternity leave had been as relaxing and fun for me as this was! Maybe the 2nd time around it will be now that I sort of know what I’m doing ;)

As Emma gets older, we are sort of getting a glimpse of her personality. She’s still very stubborn (we had lots of trouble with the bottle again this month), has quite a temper, and can be very shy! She’s actually like me in that way….quiet around strangers but once she gets to know you she warms up quite quickly.

This month we took Emma to the park a few times. She got to swing for the first time and we tried to get her to feed the ducks but she just kept putting the food in her mouth!


Don’t worry we didn’t actually let her eat this proscuitto sandwich!


We went to another Mommy and Me class. I love going to these but I wish they weren’t so expensive and that I had more time to take Emma. This particular class we went with Emma’s friend Sydney!

We took Emma to get her very first haircut at one of those kid salons. She seemed to enjoy it! Ever since then she likes when we put clips in her hair. So hilarious! She will hold her head very still as we put them on which is weird because she is so fussy whenever we try to put anything on her like clothes/hats/socks etc.

Emma’s first valentine’s day

Every Sunday we go watch daddy play basketball!

Loves sitting on dad’s shoulders

Milestone-wise she doesn’t have many new things. She started semi-crawling, playing peek-a-boo, and saying hi/bye while waving. Well more like making some noises that sound like hi/bye while waving. :)

Ok that’s enough pictures….hopefully I’ll get her 11 month out this week too!

I enjoy reading your updates on Emma, especially her milestones! I love seeing how you guys are handling being parents and seeing how the gang interacts with her, it’s a fun time for all of us! I can’t wait to see her again!

I enjoy reading Emma’s updates too! She is getting so big and getting cuter and cuter by the day. I can’t believe her 1st birthday is coming up! Can’t wait to see her again this year!
