We are all enjoying our beautiful little Emma. She is such a sweet baby, and pretty calm and content for the most part. Molly continues to be a gentle and loving big sister.
|This is a common position for Emma...her hands are constantly up by her face, almost as if to guard out all the chaos!|
We had a great Christmas Eve with my family in Urbandale. Included was a delicious dinner, taking a walk to deliver my family's final 12 Days of Christmas gift (talk about cold!), reading the nativity, and a "concert" that included my two sisters and me. Christmas morning we spent here at home and opened presents, then had a second Christmas with my family at their house. We're so happy to live near family!
A couple of days after Christmas, David's parents came to visit and to meet Emma for the first time. It was so fun to have them here. We played games constantly. They even babysat for David and me to have an anniversary dinner out...happy 7 years to us! We were so sad to see them go.
|Emma and her Grampy. Doesn't she look comfortable?|
It seemed like Emma knew she was in the spotlight that day. She was a little out of sorts the whole day. It was interesting trying to take pictures, but we did get a few good ones.

|We have pictures exactly like this of Molly in this blessing dress.|
|Yes, she does have a left hand, it's just hiding in her sleeve. Too funny!|
