Conversations with Emery

Emery was playing house with her cousing Rebekah and was getting a little bossy...

Me: "Emery, are you using kind words?"
Emery: "No, I'm the mom."
Me: "So moms don't use kind words?"
Emery: "No."
Me: "Does your mom use kind words?"
Emery: "Well some days you just yell my name."

Biting Medicine

Last night Emery bit Maycie. I was horrified! Emery is 3 years old and has never bit anyone EVER! I was so upset that I cried (I tried not to let Emery notice that). Scott was not home but we called him and he said that she needed to go right to bed. No stories, no songs! I knew that she knew it was wrong but it seemed like it was just out of rebellion. So I felt like just putting her to bed was not going to get the point across. I decided that she needed a drop of "Biting Medicine" (hot sauce). She was actually excited when I told her that when we bite we need biting medicine to help us not bite anymore because some medicine is actually quite tasty. I admit that I felt a little bad when I put a drop in her mouth and she realized it wasn't so good. Needless to say, I don't think that Emery will bite again!

I cannot believe that Maycie is already 6 months! But at the same time I can't really remember what our family was like without her. Maycie is off the charts for her height and in the 75 percentile for her weight. She has BIG beautiful eyes and rolly polly legs(Ilove to squish them).

Maycie has always been a cuddly baby and I love it! Although the down side of it is that it does make her a bit afraid of strangers. I usually go to the gym about 4 times a week and whenever I walk into the nursery there she starts crying, then they say she does fine when they give her a toy, and always when I come back she starts to scream. She knows how to work it! But all the way around she is just at a fun age! She is rolling around to get to things and loves to laugh and be silly. It is funny because whenever we are all laughing, which is quite often (we have a silly daddy), she will just laugh like she totally understands us!

She absolutely loves her toes, well and her socks. Whenever I put her in her carseat she immediately goes for her socks. She will play with those for awhile and then will be on to her toes. It is just so cute! Along with eating her toes... Maycie also loves to eat baby food! She has only tried rice, oatmeal, carrots, sweet potatoes, squash, green beans, and peas. And so far she loves them all! I think she just loves eating. She will fit in well with our family!

Polka Dots

Last week Emery got what she called "POLKA DOTS"! She broke out in hives and we don't really know what caused it. But I thought it was pretty bad!
