I am denying that my child is now a toddler! Emmy has learned so much lately. She knows what all the animals say, she can run, she can feed herself with spoon, she can say so many words i cant even count anymore but it has just hit me that my baby is not a baby anymore. She is now a toddler. I came to this conclusion last week when i was shopping with my sister-in-law. She has a 6 week old baby and Emmy kept pointing to her and saying "baby baby". After shopping we came home and she went into her play room and got a small baby doll that my mom got her months ago. She then came into the family room and said "My baby". Apart of me wanted to cry because i realized that she is not the tiny little baby that i thought she was anymore. I feel like she learns so fast! After reading her some books on babies and playing with her she now takes the baby with her everywhere. She will put it on her shoulder and say "sh sh sh". She will give her hugs and kisses and even put her baby "nigh nigh". So i guess it is official... MY BABY IS A TODDLER! I honestly can not believe how fast time has gone. I feel like I just had Emmy and now she is walikng, talking and learning more everyday. I love my Matt and Emmy so much and am so grateful that I have been so blessed!

The past 2 months have been some of the slowest months of my life! We booked a 7 day Mexican Riviera cruise and I have been counting down the days! Matt and I just booked one of our shore excursions. We are going to rappel down waterfalls in Puerto Vallarta and canopy across the jungle. I cant wait! We decided to spoil ourselves before we think about having another baby. We realize it won't be as easy to just pack up and leave when we have another one. It's hard enough with one baby I can't even imagine life with two! We are so excited to spend some time alone without attending to our wonderful Emmy and changing her diapers! I hope she does not hate us when we leave. I have heard from numerous people that if you leave your baby they will be mad at you when you get back :( Well wish us luck and don't be too jealous when i get back 10 pounds heavier because of all the food on the ship ha ha ha jk!
