Can you believe she is 5 months old already? neither can I. She is such a little doll. I can't get enough of her! I'd cuddle and kiss her all day but I've got other kids to take care of. :-)
Emily is 15.8lbs now. She can sit unassisted and of course loves to put everything in her mouth. She can locate sources of sound really well. She giggles all the time and loves to be cuddled. Hannah wasn't a cuddly baby and I realized I missed that. So I cuddle and squish Emily as much as I can.
Her hair is growing in nicely. I trimmed the last few strands of newborn hair off the top of her head right after this photo shoot so it can grow in evenly. She got to be quite bald, the baldest of my babies, but her hair is also growing in the most evenly.
This is her "about to smile" face. I can totally picture it breaking out into a big grin.
This is how she looks most of the time. With something in her mouth. I love it. Good thing we outgrow that, huh? Otherwise everyone would be mouthing stuff wherever we went. Gotta taste that shirt before I buy it! Hmmm, let me check the texture of that packaging. Nice to meet you, let me lick your cheek. ha
Emily's babyhood is flying by. I am trying to soak it all in! We love her soooo much. She is the celebrity of the Simonson house. No matter what activity is occurring when she wakes up, she instantly is cooler than it. I love it.
"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with long, perfectly manicured fingernails. I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp. I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbors children. I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden. I want to be there with children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder. I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived." — Marjorie Pay Hinckley
