Emerson is slowly but surely startying to show us her smile. She smiles all the time in her sleep, but we're getting a few glimpses during the day now too. I love it when they start to showing more personality.
This little sister could watch her big sister all day. Stella was playing and Emme just wanted to watch.
Unlike her big sister, Emerson does take a paci.
Stella wanted me to take a picture so I did.
I know Emme is super mad here, but it was really sweet because Stella just kept telling her it was ok. So SWEET.
Emerson you are growing like a weed. You still eat every 2-3.5 hours during both the day and night. We love you!
Right now Stella is really into her "lipstick" from her princess kit. Actually, she's just into lipstick period. When my mom was here she requested it regularly and if I'm putting some on or Tom is putting on chapstick she wants some. This morning she wanted EVERYONE to have some of her lipstick. Here she is helping daddy.
Of course, Emerson needed some.
A girl can never have enough lipstick.
I got some too, but we didn't get a picture. I wanted to include this picture to show off her dress. My mom (Gaga) made this and I thought it turned out super cute. I can't believe it's so cold Stella has to wear tights and a turtleneck with it, but it's still cute! Thanks MOM!
Oh and yes, Stella got this whistle as a party favor at a birthday she went to recently. Let me tell you how awesome this toy is with a newborn. ha. I might have to return to favor one day, ha!
I love this big eyes! I'm not sure they're has big as her sisters, but Emerson definitely has some pretty eyes too.
Hanging out with Mommy before Stella wakes up.
Watching Daddy on the news...very serious!
I forgot how much little ones sleep. We did a great sleep training method with Stella when she was this age, so I started it with Emerson and I was worried she was sleeping too much. But my sweet friends reminded me there is very little awake time at this age. And NO ONE wakes a sleeping baby. At least not me :)
Emerson lets me swaddle her but then I think it's her goal to bust out. She loves to have her arms free, so during the day they tend to be free, but at night they stay nice and bundled.
Stella has really been into holding Emerson more, but it's nearly impossible to get a cute picture because Stella doesn't want to look at the camera...she'd rather look at her little sister.
I love this picture. Stella has been an incredible big sister.
Emerson, you are a true joy. I really can't believe a month has already passed. For the most part you're an easy baby. You have your fussy time in the evening like your sister did (so I was able to mentally prepare myself this time), ha! You like to follow our voices, but your especially drawn to your sister's voice and you always perk up when you hear daddy. I guess you get sick of hearing from me :)
You are just begging to coo and make sweet sounds and everyone now and then I'll catch a smile. BUT you too are serious like your sister.
What?!? Emerson Kate is two weeks today. I can honestly say the time has flown by!
She is still a little peanut and has the skinniest little legs.
Yesterday was warm enough to go on a family stroll and it was super fun. Just like her sister on her first walk, Emerson did great but got a little warm a few blocks in so instead of risking it and getting on the trail in our neighborhood we turned around and headed home.
It was just what this mommy needed. A little "exercise" and sunshine. We don't have a double stroller yet, so I pushed Emerson and Tom had Stella in the jogging stroller.
Stella was super excited to take a her little sister on a walk.
Stella is still super excited about her little sister.
And Emerson usually goes along for the ride.
I don't know why but Stella loves Emerson's cheeks.
I thought this picture gives you a better idea of how little our sweet Emme is. Look at those long skinny legs...definitely a Yazwinski trait.
Like I said the past two weeks have gone by pretty fast. This week has been an adjustment because my mom went home so I've been juggling nursing, cleaning, etc and playing with Stella. Stella has definitely wanted us in her playroom with her more, so thats been interesting at times, but it's fun too. I know I didn't do a 1 week post for Miss E and I'm not going to act like I have it all together. Sometimes just sitting on the couch is more appealing during a down time then cracking open the laptop. I will do my best to stay on top of it.
I'm hoping to do a comparison post soon so you can tell me if Emerson and Stella look alike. I'm still not convinced...there are moments, but not all the time.
Anyway, we are super in LOVE. Emerson eats, sleeps, poops (oh my goodness I forgot how much a newborn poops) and then does it all over again. This week we've enjoyed some more awake time and I know before long we'll be working on a schedule, so for now I'm just trying to enjoy the moment!
