Our Emmy Girl

We welcomed Emerson Florence into our family on September 8th 2013. She was born at 6:08PM, weighing 7lbs 2oz and 20 inches long. She is named after Greg's grandma, who is the sweetest and best lady on the planet. 

We were so excited for her, but pretty nervous too. Last time we went through this, our whole world was flipped upside down. We felt peace that everything would be ok, but it was hard to not let our minds go to that ugly what-if place. Luckily, she is healthy & happy!

She is such a sweet girl and so cuddly. We all adore her! She weighs 18 lbs, which is how much Coop weighed at over a year old... she's 5 months. She lights up whenever she sees Greg, Cooper, or I. She is head over heels for Coop. She could watch him play all day. He is really good with her and has adjusted well. He struggled a bit at first, but is now doing really good. 

Some of her favorites:

Binky-especially her ducky wubbanubb 
Toys-straight to her mouth
Books-if she is really sad, a book will always make her happy
Blankets-she loves to have a blanket near her cheek when I rock her to sleep and loves chewing on them too
Bottle-she makes the cutest noises when she sees her bottle 
Her hands & feet-favorites to suck on

We are so happy to have her in our family & love her more than we could ever imagine.
