Sunday Traditions-

So today is Sunday and I got to experience one of Daddy's favorite things today- The Dallas Cowboys! They were not on the T.V. at home today so Daddy met some friends at a restaurant with BIG T.V.'s that were playing the game. Naturally I had to find an outfit for the occasion and Auntie Sos had sent me just the right one! I think I was good luck for the team because they won their game 13-9 against Tampa Bay even without Tony Romo. I was ready to step in as quarterback if they needed me.

Love you all- Emma
Ps. Mommy added more pictures to my site- check them out!

The five week blues

I am five weeks and two days old today! I have been growing so much lately- so much that Mommy thinks I am going through a growth spurt. Both Mommy and Daddy have weighed me on the bathroom scale and I am already 11 pounds and 23 inches long! That puts me in the 90th percentile for height and the 75th for weight. It also means that I have been a little fussy lately. All I want to do all day is eat and every time I do I get a stomach ache. Everything Mommy has read says that this should pass soon but I think I will keep crying for now. Sometimes it just feel good to cry!

In other news I acquired a new skill this week. I can sit up without Mommy or Daddy's help! Well to be honest I am sitting up with the help of my bumbo chair- it is a soft foam chair that supports my neck- and since I can hold my head up all on my own Mommy let me sit in it sometimes. It is tons of fun.

So that is what is going on with me this week. I love to hear about what you all are up to. Drop me a note or give a call any time. Talk to you soon! Love

The last few weeks

Hello Emma again-

Can you believe it I am 1 month old all ready! My mommy usually sends out an email for me every week but she claims that she has been so busy looking after me that she hasn't had time so I decided to give you a little update on what I have been up to since I was 2 weeks old.

I have been growing and getting stronger every day. Mommy and I try to get at least 15 minutes of tummy time in every day. This is where I lay on my stomach and try to hold my head up and push myself up on my arms. It seems to be working because I have been keeping my head up all by myself and I even rolled over from my tummy to my back when I was just 3 weeks 6 days old. I did it three times but I am over it already and I think I will wait a while before I do it again. All of these workouts is really helping my get strong though. Check out this video of me playing with Daddy.

I also had a visit from Grandma and Grandpa von Goertz. They were here for 10 whole days! We had fun going for walks and Skyping with my cousin SoLace and Auntie Sonja and Uncle Ryan every night. If you don't know what Skype is, it is a fun way to talk to people through the computer no matter how far away you are. All you need is a computer and a webcam and you are all set to Skype. We love to chat so let us know if you are up for it! Here are a few pictures from our week with G&G as well as an update on how I am growing with my weekly photos Mommy takes. I love you all- check back soon as I will be trying to update this site as often as possible!
Love- Emma
