So Much Love

Last week Emma Claire had a few visitors.  My friend from high school, Stephanie (who now lives in Texas) came over with her two boys, who are absolutely adorable!  It was so nice to catch up with her and spend some time together.   I think Steph would have packed her up and taken her home! 

On Thursday, my Grandmother from OK (my dad's mom) and Uncle Gary came in from OKC to spend a few days with us and Emma Claire.  Mom brought them up on Friday and then we spent the day with them on Saturday.  I know Grandma was so excited to see her latest great-grandbaby!  I told her so has almost as many great-grandbabies as she does grandchildren!  
As for anything else going on with us, pretty much nothing else right now.  Emma Claire turns 6 months old on Saturday and we have our 6 month checkup next Tuesday.  TEIS is coming out to set up her Developmental Plan and get us on schedule for her teacher this week, so more news to follow on that!  She is just growing and getting bigger each day!  I cannot wait to find out what she now weighs.

Mom and I were able to getting a little shopping done for her next year.  Our FAVORITE children's  shoppe had a buy 1 get 1 free event.  Mom bought her some outfits for next year.  I hope we made the right decision on sizes, however, I can make these spring/summer outfits into fall outfits as well with just a long t-shirt and/or some cute baby legs!

 Here are the outfits Nana (my mom) bought for her

I got her a diaper cover to wear under her dresses and then a cute little monogrammed onesie with her initial.  They had some baby legs (leg warmers) on clearance so I got her a couple of pairs of those as well!  She is going to be one stylish little girl!  

On Saturday, Mom needed to run out to Green Hills and my friend Heather told me babGap was having a sale, so we stopped by there and got her a couple of super cute dresses, one chocolate brown and the other one zebra print (chocolate brown and white), for 3.50 a piece.  I could not pass up that kind of deal!  I should have gotten the other colors in the dresses for that price.  Again, they are big on her, however, I can add some cute leggings and a long sleeve onesie or sweater and have a cute fall outfit.  I really try to put things that will work for both seasons, especially now so we can get a lot of use out of them!

Emma Claire in the rocking chair Nana (matt's mom) passed down to us. I think I will start taking a picture once a month in this rocking chair to show her size.
