11 Weeks New!!!!!!!!!!!

The weeks are just flying by!  I wish I could stop the clock and soak up as many snuggles of my little mush as humanly possible while she's still this little.  Although, she's not that little anymore!  At just over 2.5 months old, Emily weighs 12 pounds 10 ounces and is FULL of personality!!!

I think I mentioned in her 2 month post that she is so strong that she can actually stand on her own, feet on the floor supporting ALL of her weight {with a little help from Mommy for balance of course} for several seconds!  She also loves climbing up your tummy while you're holding her upright; that little mover!

As if that's not advanced enough, I am pretty sure she started trying to sit up this week!  What??  At 2.5 months old???  She keeps ducking her head down and at first I couldn't figure out why, but yesterday and today I noticed that while she flexes her neck and ducks her head, she curls her tummy in and if you are holding her hands she'll start pulling herself up with her arms!  Today while I was holding her in a lean-back position on my lap, she grabbed onto my hands and tugged herself up partially!  I'm telling you, this kiddo is going to be sitting up in no time at all!

In other "way ahead of her age" news, she's almost able to roll from her back onto her tummy!!  She started rolling from tummy to back at a very early age, mostly to escape tummy time.  ;)  But over the past week, I've seen her bend her body in a way that gets her from her back onto her side.... she just needs a little more power and then she'll definitely be able to get on her belly on her own.  I can't believe it!!

My little girl is so strong, determined and smart!  And she's growing up way too fast.

Speaking of growing up fast, for some extra fun let's have some #TBT action.  The photo on the left takes us all the way back to when Emily was 1 month old.  If Kate Middleton can recycle her outfits, so can Emily!

Can you believe how big she's gotten in just 5.5 weeks?!?!  Neither can I!


  1. She is definitely growing up so fast! I just want to squeeze those chubby little thighs!! I love when babies have leg rolls. I'm also very proud of her for being so advanced already! She may even be an early walker!

    1. Her leg rolls are awesome, if I do say so myself! ;) I too think she will be an early walker, and an early crawler too! Time is just slipping by toooo fast!

  2. yep...start baby proofing the house cause she will be crawling for sure very soon!! I'm so proud of her strength and determination. Oh and of course she is adorable!
