OBSESSED.

Obsessed does not even begin to describe how I feel about this girl...


 This chick has been growing & learning like crazy, y'all!
She's over 15-months old now. Can ya believe it?!!?!

Every night before bed, I quickly jot down whatever it was we did that day. I also write down the day's "First's" if there were any. & most of the time there were!  
It's hard to keep up and remember e v e r y l i t t l e t h i n g Emmy is learning.


'They' say, Early Walker, Late Talker, right?
Well, around these parts, we have an Early Talker, Late Walker.

Emmalyn took a couple of steps right around her first birthday, but had absolutely no interest in taking things further. Honestly, I could care less because I wasn't ready to chase after her. People at playgroups would say things like, "She's not walking yet? How old is she?" & sometimes I'd respond back with a, "Nope. Not yet. But have you ever seen a five year-old who wasn't walking because they didn't start right at 12 months..?" Seriously, people.

What Emmy lacks in the mobility department, she definitely makes up for in the verbal department.
Girlfriend can talk! and talk... and talk... and talk...

& not only that... she can identify all the words she can say!
It would be practically impossible to remember all the words she knows if I didn't write them down.
Thankfully, I have a little Type A in me, and have conveniently kept a journal.

My Little PSA: This is a total 'braggy' post about my girl. What mama doesn't like to brag every now and then? Am I right?! So yeah, consider yourself warned ;)
