Emily is half a year old today. Wow! I can't even put into words how that feels. It feels like yesterday remembering that frantic rush to the hospital and all those bumps along the road. And yet it feels like Emily was part of our world for much longer than a mere 6 months.
She's come a long way. She's napping, although quite irregular with the length she is napping about the same time every day which I consider a wild success. She's happy and smiling and sometimes laughing. She seems very independent. After experiencing Emily I finally understand how other people could, for example, take their child to the mall shopping etc. Nolan would not have it. That was way too confining for him but Emily seems content to observe and take it all in. She seems happy just chewing away on her toys or playing in her exersaucer.
We do see glimpses of crazy from her but it's not constant like it was with Nolan. She does have a silly streak in her but generally speaking she seems calm and content these days. She even snuggled with me this morning for a minute or so!
