Friday Update

It's Friday night. The babe is asleep and I'm finally sitting down! I am not exaggerating when I say that she has been on the move non-stop for the last few weeks. She has more energy than she knows what to do with. I'm usually one step behind her, trying to make sure she's not getting into anything she's not supposed to. At home I can kind of keep her contained in one area but that's not the case at Mimi's house. Trust me when I say that she is loving every second of it!
And oh my is she growing! Her blonde hair is getting so thick and long and she's pretty much completely lost that baby look. It's just amazing watching her change and grow.
 Have I mentioned just how much I love this baby girl? I just can't get enough of her and her sweet personality. She keeps me smiling and laughing all day long.
Anyway, I guess I'll stop gushing for now and tell you a little bit about what we've been up to.

Right now I'm catching up on blogs and watching Army Wives. I started with Season 1 when I was home last year and I made it halfway through Season 2. I never got to finish so I decided to pick back up. Y'all, it is SO good! I really hope I get to catch all the way up before I head back later this summer.

Earlier this week Emerson and I headed to Kohls and the mall to do some shopping. It was the first time in a long time that I didn't buy anything for E and actually bought some clothes for myself. We were gone most of the day and Emerson was an absolute doll. She usually starts melting down after about two hours of shopping but she seemed to be happy to get out of the house and she actually napped in her stroller at the mall. It was just a great day and I'm so excited about some of the cute clothes I got!
It was also her first time riding in the little rides at the mall. Oh. my.goodness. did that sweet girl have fun! Just watching her grin from ear to ear was enough to make my heart melt.
Next week we have a very important visitor coming! My very dear friend Mandy and her darling Ann Elise are coming to stay with us for the week. Mandy was my very first friend when we moved to Jacksonville 10 (yes 10!!!) years ago. Believe it or not, we haven't seen each other in almost 7 years but we have remained the best of friends despite the time and distance. I am so, so excited to see her and her sweet girl. Trust me when I say there will be LOTS of pictures of E and AE together.
Other than that, things are pretty quiet around here. Jesse seems to be settling back into life at home and E and I are both missing him. Thank goodness for FaceTime! Emerson just loves to kiss the screen over  and over. Such a little Daddy's girl!

Happy Friday everyone! I hope y'all have a blessed weekend!

She is too precious! And I know the feeling - they grow up way too fast. Kinda sad, but with each new stage it gets more fun! :)
