31 Weeks Young!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

December 25, 2014

Guess who finally started to cut her second tooth just in the nick of time for Christmas!  We didn't know it was the culprit at the time, but her new tooth kept waking Little Miss Emily up almost hourly the night before Christmas Eve, who in turn shared the fun with her loving parents!  I'm not kidding -- she slept from 8-8:45pm, 9-10pm, 10-11:20pm, 11:50p-1:20a, 1:30-3am, 3:25-3:40am, 4-7:30am, and then 7:45-8am.  We obviously knew something was up with so many wake-up-and-cry sessions, but it wasn't until Wednesday morning that I felt the tips of that tooth finally cutting through.  Needless to say, Mommy and Daddy were pretty tired when it was time to get up and get packed on the 24th.  But, we somehow managed to pull ourselves together and make the 2 hour drive north to my aunt's house. We didn't get there until after 3 pm, but better late than never!  ;)  An early Christmas present from Emily to us is that she slept for well over an hour in the car on the way there!  It wasn't all at once -- she woke up twice and then fell back asleep a few minutes later -- but that is absolutely the most she's ever slept in a 2 hour period, and by far the most she's slept in the car!  After such a rough night, that was a pleasant car surprise!  She slept pretty well at Aunt Barbara's house too... woke up her typical 2x a night to nurse, but that was much better than she was doing the prior few days at home!

Emily also figured out this week how to bend her wrist and make a waving motion with her hand.  So far, she mostly does it while holding a toy.  She keeps practicing and practicing and practicing over and over and over again!!!  It's all just so exciting that those little fingers and chubby little wrist can bend and move!  ;)

And just in case a new tooth and new found hand control aren't enough, Emily reallllllllly wants to stand up independently.  The drive this girl has is incredible {and exhausting}, and very advanced for her age!

As for Christmas, she didn't pay as much attention to the Christmas tree or the gifts as I thought she would, though OF COURSE she tried to eat the presents, wrapping paper and ribbons!  She did really like her new toys though!!!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!
