Emma is a carb-o-maniac

Emma is a carb-o-maniac. Today she was scarfing down a bagel, working out that new tooth of hers. I had to pry it out of her hands after she started managing to rip off big hunks and I didn't want her to choke on it. She's eat just about any bread-based food. This morning she was happy eating Sam's pancakes even though he wouldn't touch them (they were buckwheat).

Her cold is getting better, though it seems she's passed it on to us. I could tell she was in a better mood when she started wiggling and clapping to the radio as we hung out in the basement tonight.

We went outside a bit today as the weather improved some. She really wanted to walk through the grass, so we managed to get a pair of her socks quite muddy. She also had a good time playing in the grass, though I drew the line at eating dried up leaves.

Emma was sick last night, sleeping poorly and running a fever. Jamie handed her off to me at five this morning where she slept fitfully, settling down to the music and dancing lights of the computer. I kept her as long as I could, then it was back to Jamie while I got ready for work. She seemed in a better mood when I left, smiling at me as I rode off on my bike.

It also turns out that she's getting her first tooth, one of the lower front ones (I'm sure my dad and Jenny know the real name, but I'll just call it that). It's hard to tell if it's bothering her or not, as she's clearly sick and already likes to chew on everything. Poor girl.

Emma continues to grow, which seems inevitable. Her mobility is becoming amazing as she'll race across the room, crawling quite quickly. She also loves to walk though she needs both hands held for that.

Her eating repitoire continues to expand. She's quite fond of Metropol bread, assuring me that she's truly my daughter.

She's also doing funny things like clapping or playing peekaboo. She loves to get into big kid stuff as well. She's currently discovered the baby monitor and is trying to disassemble it.

I'm not sure Jamie likes my baby watching skills as she seems to be making exaspirated noises as I let Emma climb a stack of boxes.
