Emily's Favourite Things

Bath time can't come soon enough each day!!
Flying with Grandpa...
Laundry Baskets and Casey... what more could you ask for?
Her favourite cat, Max. The grey cat is much nicer to her, but Max is by far her favourite (maybe because he's black and white?)

I know I've neglected my blog lately, but everything I blog also goes on Facebook. And I'm pretty sure everyone who checks the blogs also checks Facebook. But for those faithful bloggers out there here's a new post!

Professional Pictures

Here are the professional photos taken by my cousin. He came to my parents house which was way easier than taking Emily and my grandmother to a portrait studio. The first picture is of the four generations on my mom's side. I love the ones of Emily!

6 months

I've definitely been neglecting my blog lately (I blame Facebook!!) but here are some 6 months pictures of Emily. My photographer cousin, Jeff, came and took some professional pictures, but I don't have them back yet. When I do I'll post some... they will be much better than my lousy at home attempt!

Emily can now sit up (although not unattended) and is showing signs of crawling pretty soon. She can crawl backwards, just not forwards. She is still spewing mucus but other than that she's back to herself. What a relief!

Emily discovered the joys of eating Watermelon a couple of days ago. She loved gnawing on the rind... don't worry, she didn't get any of the flesh of the melon. I think she was primarily using it as a teething ring.

Jolly Jumping!

Emily loves her jolly jumper! She really tries to concentrate (hence the sticking out of the tounge!).

Just thought I'd post some pictures. They're not of anything in specific, but it's always nice to look at some new photos.

Emily's first tooth.

Well Emily cut her first tooth today. She's been very fussy lately and now I know why. I haven't really been checking often to see if a tooth had popped through... my mom found it when Emily bit her thumb. So now she has become the worst drooler ever. Back to bibs I suppose!

Emily in her Bumbo... she likes it, but gets frustrated when she can't flail all around.

The Young Family

The group photo

Family Reunion

Yesterday was the Young family reunion. (My dad's mom's side). Just thought I would post some pictures since nobody really knows my side of the family! This is my soon-to-be cousin Ashley who is going to be on "Style by Jury" for a 'plain jane to blushing bride' makeover! (And Will, the 30-week premie baby - he is now 2 years old)

My mom and Emily

My dad, cousin Jamie, and cousin Cory

My cousin's little girl, Olivia, my mom and Emily. Olivia just loved Emily and spent every moment with her. She helped feed her, sang her to sleep and let Emily play with her My Little Pony.

My dad and his brother and sister. What goofs!

A Visit from Jen and Heather

A few weeks ago my roommates from second and third year came to visit Emily. Most of you know Heather Rickard (now McCallum) who now lives in St. Thomas, but Jen and her boyfriend Mark came all the way from Flesherton. We had a nice visit... we have to do it more often.

Blogging Plagiarism

Since I can't blog from home, I stole the first picture from Beth's blog and the last two pictures from Megan's camera. Enjoy!

Emily went in my parent's pool for the first time yesterday. Justin took her in and she just LOVED it. I thought she wouldn't be too keen on it since the pool was already in the shade and not that warm, but she had a blast. She kicked and kicked like crazy until she was completely exhausted! It was a great way to tire out my very active baby!

I do have a good excuse!!

I know I haven't blogged lately, but there is a reason... Our old computer (mine from university) finally gave out on us. So now we are using my sister's old, old computer (it still has windows 98 on it!!) for the time being until we can afford a new one. It's super fast compared to our old one, probably because there's nothing on it!! And I can go on the internet no problem, I just can't upload my pictures from our digital camera. I have lots to post, but no ability! Hopefully Justin will be able to put a program onto this computer to make it upload pictures.

p.s. Happy Birthday Rick!

Past and Present

I came across some of my baptism pictures, so I just thought I would post one since we're both wearing the same gown. (My sister is holding me)

Stephen and Janet have raised quite a little ham! As soon as Aidan realizes you are taking a picture of him he gives the goofiest grin ever. I have about 10 pictures of him doing this pose, but figured I would only post 3! What a cutie!

Fun at Janet's!

Instead of going to the park this morning (since none of our kids really benefit from it too much) we decided to rent a movie, eat pizza and brownies, and just hang out! Thanks Jan for a great day. Ethan and Aidan have become such good friends now that their age gap isn't as noticeable. It was so much fun watching them play together..... they are hilarious!

This is all my sweet baby can really do right now, but I must say she looks awfully cute doing it!

A sweet picture of Miss Abigail. She has the most amazing eyes ever!

Ethan was SO determined to sit in the Bumbo chair meant for Abby. Megan warned him a couple of times, but he just had to sit down. Little did he know that he wouldn't be able to get up! Don't worry, his mom pulled him out RIGHT after I took this picture!
