More Project 365

Em has grown to be much more cuddly when she's awake. She'll give us unprompted hugs and will want to snuggle more before we put her down for the night. And instead of immediately waking up when we take her out of her car seat, she's started to rest her head on our shoulders and continue to slumber.

Day 21

Friday we met up with Alyssa, Jenny and the Bean for lunch and shopping. Em sported this lovely dress that Alyssa gave her for her birthday. Super cute! I wish it came in my size!
Day 22

Saturday Em and I had lunch with a bunch of my friends, one of whom brought her gorgeous little boy, F. He's a few months younger than Em, so he mostly sat there quietly and smiled, while Em ran around like a terror, getting into EVERYTHING. I trailed her most of the time, but at one point she ran into the kitchen and came back out with a sandwich from the garbage! This garbage was in a cabinet, by the way. My girl is FAST, and apparently hungry -- even after her own lunch and half of mine. I noticed the trail of panini on my friend's carpet and knew exactly what happened.

Anyhow, Em and F did humor me by sitting close together long enough for me to snap some pics.

"You think you're getting your chair back, F?"
"Oh, yeah?!?!"

"Ok, but only because you have nice eyes and fun hair."
"Nice eyes!"

"Mom! Don't embarrass me in front of my date!"
Day 23

The next day we went to my in-laws', where Grandpa read Em a used Richard Scary picture book that Grandma bought from a nearby library. We all laughed as he pointed out the tagging by "Smiley," a local gang member who had also decided to pencil in male genitalia throughout the book. "That's a dentist....and he's putting *something* in his patient's mouth....what in the?!?"

Day 24

Day 25's photo features Em with her stuff-around-her-neck trick. It's a flower headband I bought for her last year, but she loves to wear it like a collar.

Day 26 is a post-bathtime/pre-bedtime photo. Yes, those are her FEET.
Day 26

Lastly, here's a photo from tonight's dinner. Em was probably thinking, "Why are you taking pics during this meltdown?!?! Seriously!"
Day 27

"Books are the legacies that a great genius leaves to mankind, which are delivered down from generation to generation as presents to the posterity of those who are yet unborn." - Joseph Addison


  1. I LOVE the picture of Em with her Grandpa! What a lovely moment. "Smiley" sounds very . . . artistic. Em looks so grown up in the 2nd picture!

  2. Love the one of her sleeping with the hubs. She's so precious.

  3. I love that dress too- how about if it came in a maternity size as well? I would buy it! I love cuddly babies- too bad I didn't get one. At least not yet. I'm not hopeful though. I wasn't a cuddly baby and I think it is payback now that I don't get one either.

  4. It's so fun watching her grow up! She's so fashionable, too. I could use some tips from Em.

  5. Em is not only adorable, she's a fashionista! I want those silver flats!

  6. yup, that first photo is precious. priceless! she's going to love that one when she gets older. i do.

  7. Dying over the, um, creative additions to the book. Hehehe.

  8. What Winnie said. The gpa pic is precious.

  9. Beautiful pictures of an adorable little girl :)

  10. She is getting so big, and she is beautiful!
    I love snuggly babies- my fav is when Ali is asleep on my shoulder- doesn't happen much anymore :) so I cherish it!

  11. Ha! Not even Richard Scarry is safe. The pics are too cute! Em is stylin!

  12. i used to put my feet in my mouth all the time when i was a kid, there are so many pics of me doing it, haha. if only i was that flexible now, haha.

  13. So cute! That dress looks so adorable on her :) That first pic is priceless!
