Baby Binga

Emmy has been so stinking cute lately!!!! First of all, she's been giving us kisses when we want one, she opens her mouth and sort of sticks out her tongue, cute but kinda gross. It's always initiated by me or my husband or Grammy, etc. but the other day I was burping her and she leaned forward and kissed me! It was the cutest thing ever!

Another thing that she does now is waves. I don't think she quite knows what it means yet because yesterday in church I saw her waving and I looked to see who she was waving at and there was no one there. It was really funny because she kept doing it. But I love that she does it! She just loves to copy us and it is so cute! She claps a lot, too, which is so cute. And sometimes she'll lightly hit her chest while she's talking so that it makes her voice jump a little. She's been doing that for a long time, but I thinks it's so funny.

Emmy is also getting very good at scooting around, still not on all 4's but that hasn't stopped her! I'll leave the room for a minute and when I come back, she's clear on the other side! And she also likes to "stand up" (for her, standing up is straightening her legs while her hands are still on the ground so she looks like a stink bug!). It's so much fun to see her grow and develop and to see how smart she is. My life would be so boring without her!!!

I can scoot!

So Emmy isn't crawling yet but she has learned how to scoot around the house to things she wants. And she's starting to try to pull herself up. She hasn't been able to totally pull herself up, but she is really trying! I posted a video of the scooting below this post. Check it out!

Emmy can also go from her tummy to a sitting position now. She just started doing this on Sunday. She was on her tummy and I was playing with her on the floor. I turned my head for a second and when I turned back she was on her bum! It was so funny, I was like, "how did you do that?" And when I put her down for a nap after church, she kept crying so I finally went in her room and, sure enough, on her bum again. I think she gets confused when she does it in her crib. She doesn't seem to know how to get back to her tummy, but only when she's in the crib. When she's playing on the floor, no problem. But I had to take a pic of it because it was so funny to me!

Funny face

Emmy has this face that she pulls when she gets excited. It is hillarious! She raises her elbows out to the sides and wiggles her fingers and pulls this face. I couldn't resist posting something about it because it is so uniquely her!

4th of July

We had a fun 4th of July! We went to SLC and hung out with family. Emmy even stayed up for the fireworks and didn't get fussy! At one point during the fireworks, she even started clapping - it was so cute! She likes fireworks!
