This is an older pic, but still one of my favs. Em cuddles with this little monkey in her crib sometimes. Brent came out of the nursery giggling during one of her naps when he found her like this:
Em can sit up on her own now, although not enough for us to leave her unattended as she still topples over now and then. She is good enough to try out a restaurant high chair, which we did this weekend. Here she is, buckled into my high chair/shopping cart cover, sitting like a champ!
We like to imagine what Em will look like when she FINALLY gets some hair. A glimpse into the future? Our own little Suri Cruise, perhaps?
I think Em is realizing what a big, big world in which she's found herself. Her new trick is bracing herself, which has translated into what we like to think are HUGS as she pulls her body tightly into ours and wraps her pudgy little arms around us! You can ask her for a hug, and there's a good possibility she'll give you one on cue! Love it, love it, love it! In addition to bracing herself via hugs, she likes to hold on tight to her changing table pad and her car seat. Evidence below.
Hold on, baby girl. Mommy and Daddy are gonna take ya for a wild ride.
