Family Fun

We got back from the beach early Thursday morning & we all had a great time. Emma & Morgan spent a lot of time playing in the floor & on the beach with their big cousins. Kaylee & Caroline really had a great time with the babies & were a great help in entertaining them so we could take showers, fix meals or whatever.

While we were at the beach Emma turned 8 months old & she can now sit up on her own & sort small obects. She is such a busy little baby now. I have started giving her a cup (water only for now), but she still isn't quite sure what to do with it yet. She also tried peas for the first time & she wasn't very fond of them. At first the made her gag as if she was going to throw up but the next feeding when she at them she did much better. Morgan is almost 10 months old & she just started pulling up to a standing position, which she is very proud of. Morgan is also saying "bye, bye" now. These babies are growing up so fast & what a joy they bring to our lives.

Morgan & Emma playing. Notice Morgan pointing, its one of her new tricks.

Beach Bound

We are heading to the beach tomorrow after Chris gets home from work & we will be staying at Mama's beach house again. Both of my sisters, Mama & 3 neices will be coming as well, not sure if my brother will be there or not. Chris only has Friday off so he will be coming back Sunday night but Emma & I will be riding back with either Mama (on Monday) or Karen & her girls (on Tues or Wed). I am sure we will have many pictures to share.
Emma is doing much better with her baby food. So far she really likes carrots & squash. She has also started to make a sweet little noise every time she sees one of the cats or our dog Spencer. Our oldest cat, Zoie, is the only one who will really let her pet her & Emma loves it. We are still working with the rest of the animals & hopefully they will learn to relax around her soon.
