Emma was taking a bath tonight and she bumped her open mouth on the enamel side pretty hard. Blood came out and you could see that the teeth that were about to come out seemed much more visible. I did a minor freak out, but within a few minutes she was calmly sitting on Jamie's lap feeling much better.

Thirty minutes later she was running around buck naked in the back yard with Sam and Jamie, who was squirting the hose at the flowers and occasionally the kids. Everyone was laughing and having a great time. It was one of those moments I hoped to fix in my memory for the rest of my days.

Emma had a funny thing happen last night

Emma had a funny thing happen last night. She's slowly starting to figure out how her body works and last night she was running around naked on the kitchen floor. As fate would have it, she peed on the floor.

This was a strange and mysterious event to her, which she pondered for awhile. After we cleaned it up, she stood there trying to replicate the event. Sure enough, there was soon another little puddle for us to clean up. She then ran into the living room, perhaps to share the good news with Sam, and promptly peed on the rug.

I think after that Jamie got wise to her ways and threw some diapers on the girl.

Emma is most certainly a walker

Emma is most certainly a walker. When we went to the beach, she spent a good chunk of it moving around from place to place. Most trips would end with her getting too cold and having to return home, otherwise she'd just happily play in the sand and water forever.

Her pronunciation improves daily. She was saying "blueberries" reasonably well over the weekend, a new favorite of hers. She's also figured out the word "baby", applying it to any small humanoid object she comes across. Emma's also improved on her kisses, no longer trying to eat people's lips off like some sort of giant leech.

Emma's walking abilities have improved remarkably

Emma's walking abilities have improved remarkably. Last night she was carrying a small watering can around outside, pouring water on whichever patch of concrete needed it the most. She's also gotten quite good at understanding words and I can often explain to her what I want her to do and she'll dutifully obey.

The pronunciation isn't quite there yet. Last night she was in her chair saying "Da. Da." I thought she meant me, but Jamie explained that she really just wanted down.

Emma's teeth continue to sprout in

Emma's teeth continue to sprout in. There's two fully in and another four or five popping in quickly. Unfortunately, she's picked up a couple bad habits already. I've caught her grinding her teeth. She's also bitten me a couple times, and I've strongly expressed my unhappiness with it.

Emma's been sick the last few days, very plug...

Emma's been sick the last few days, very plugged up and coughing on occasion. We're not sure if it's related to the new teeth that seem to be sprouting in left and right, or if it's something like a cold or allergies. Poor girl.

Emma's getting pretty good at walking around. She really likes her walker and she'll grab it and start hauling it around in circles in the basement. More often she'll just walk to get where she's going, though there's only a fifty percent chance that she'll actually make it.

Her tastes in playing seem to be getting more refined. She'll play in the sand box for a good long while, and loves baths as well. She and Sam will also play with Legos seemingly forever. Emma will remove then reattach hats over and over. She also has a funny habit of sitting in the Lego containers as if it were a tiny sandbox.
