Back and ready to roll
Well, we are back from our adventure to the in-laws, and ready to get back to normal.

DANG it is so much harder to travel with a little one. Emerson did fabulous in the car on the way there and back, but the little thing just does not want to sleep in her moses basket anymore, and I can't blame her- she's used to her crib; why would she want to be crammed into a little basket anymore?

It's time to retire it... which is a teensy bit sad for me, because I know it's time for the next growing up stage (which is exciting too).

I took her for her 4 month check up (although she is nearly 5 months) and think we got the whole eating problem thing settled- it is reflux (like I thought it was). Eating should be getting a lot easier for her now that we know what to do. :)

She had her shots today too- which I abhor doing. She sounds so heartbroken when they poke her. Funny little thing though: she is the darndest smiliest baby I've ever seen (and loads of people comment on that too- it's not just biased mommy complex!). She was sobbing her little heart out, and I'm trying to check out, and a nice lady is talking to Em. My little girl stops crying for a minute to give the lady one of her dazzling smiles... then goes back to crying.

What a little silly.

The week ahead:

I've got the week ahead of me with not a whole lot planned... which is really nice. Probably going to help my friend/aunt Ginger paint her living room today (I just love to paint- I don't know why- it's just a satisfying feeling to me!), then Grams and Mom are coming up tomorrow to do some scrapbook shopping at the most awesome scrapbooking store Scrap Etc.

Plan to hang out with a playdate later in the week... other than that, just stay home and get the place whipped into shape (how does a house get so messy when you're out of town for a few days??!!)

Ciao darlings!

What a darling girl you have!

It's such a whipping traveling with babies, and I'm glad you have not much on the calendar this week, as it may take you that long to recover!!!!
Unpacking. Ug.

Thanks! :)

I know... I feel like today I've finally gotten somewhat back to normal. :P I hate that feeling of trying to catch up.
