Well overdue updates

WARNING! This will be a rather long post. We've had lots of excitement the last few weeks... which probably explains why we haven't posted and therefore have lots to blog all of a sudden!

Emery's 2 month birthday!
Yeah for our cute little rugrat being 2 months old (on Feb 29th)! Her two-month fat stat was 10 lbs 9 oz so she's still gaining more than an ounce per day. (Meaning she's probably inching up on 12 lbs by now!) Go Emery! She officially declared herself a giggler yesterday so we'll have to post a video of that soon. We love being her parents and constantly find ourselves talking mostly about how cute she is in the limited time Aaron and I get to spend together these days. :)

Trip to Las Vegas
The weekend of Em's 2 month mark we took a quick weekend trip down to Vegas to visit my family. Emery was a great little travel buddy... though her wiggliness necessitated a few stops strictly for wiggling purposes (car seat doesn't give her enough room and she gets frustrated). On the trip Emery met her Uncle Bry, Uncle Jer, Aunt Mel and cousins Jacob, Emma and Abe (Em is their first cousin so they were pretty excited!). She and cousin Emma (fondly known as "Em and Em" by Grandpa) had matching dresses and pjs for the occasion. Pic of the matching dresses below. She also met her all three of her great grandparents on my side - Grandma and Grandpa Wimmer and "Great-Mama" Ila Mae Britt (my namesake and her's as well). Great-Mama loved her through a mask since she was sick and we wanted to make sure Em didn't get it! :(

A moment of wiggling frustrations for Em in the carseat on the way there. That's a seriously cute sad face.

Meeting cousin Miles
Matt and Amy were in Utah for Amy to interview for a fellowship to do her PhD at Utah State so the day after we got back from Vegas we took a quick jaunt up to SLC so Emery and Miles could meet (Miles is Emery's cousin, just 2 weeks younger than her). They completely love each other... or at least we think so. They laid on a blanket together just wiggling and holding hands and kicking Grandpa in the head. It was adorable.

Grandpa in heaven with his 2 newest grandbabies

Holding hands - soooo cute!

Miles does like Emery, despite his projected tongue shown here

Emery the nun?
The video tells the story better than I ever could. Sorry it's sideways!

Adventures at the Dinosaur Museum... sometime back in February!

Thanks to Grandmama Wilkinson, her grandbabies - even the tiniest ones - get to enjoy the Dinosaur Museum at Thanksgiving Point! Way cool!

Random cute pics!

Emery's "This isn't funny! Quit taking pictures, don't change my diaper, just FEED ME!" face.

Emery's inquisitive face in her play gym... it's fun to watch her little eyes bounce around and try to decide what is the most fun to look at!

Busted for chocolate consumption... or should I say FRAMED!

Emery and Cami Gourley hugging! We loved seeing Clint, Clare and Cami visiting from Wisconsin last week!

What cute pictures! Emery is SO adorable! In some pictures, I'll think that she looks totally like mom, and then others she looks like her daddy! It's good to see how much fun you're having with her, and it only gets better!

I seriously don't think Emery could get ANY cuter!! I have NEVER EVER (and i'm not just saying this) seen a baby as beautiful as your little Emery!(besides my own of course) WoW. She is such an adorable little girl, and her expressions are just to DIE for. You guys should be put on a magazine :)

I love all of the new pictures! They sure grow up fast, huh? I am a big fan of her videos too! Nun-tastic.

MOM! said...

Britty,

You are the cutest Mom and the best blogger I know. You are my inspiration to get posting. My Mom, Elli and I are trying to find a weekend to come down and visit. Maybe the first part of April. I will be in touch.

Britt-- Honestly she is adorable! The video was freaking hilarious--Im guessing that's Dad speaking or was it you? My sound wasn't very loud so I couldn't really tell. But the hand holding pic is classic also! Yeah, tell everyone hi for me at class-- I miss exercising so much! I can't wait to go back - except when I can means I have to go back to work too--so sad. Well talk to you soon! --Robin
