Here Horsey Horsey....OR I should say Mule

As I would think most kids would be terrified of a huge mule or draft horse for that matter, not our little Emma Claire, the bigger the animal the more she wanted to go see and of course touch them.  She would pet them and then shriek with laughter.  

During our trip to the Wilson Co Fair this past Saturday, Emma Claire decided she would not leave without a ride on a miniature donkey and to sit on the spotted mule, Hooch.  

She loved it so much that I told her Pa (Matt's dad) he better get ready to start taking her to shows.  What a little ham!

Here Fishy Fishy

Let me just start by saying, Emma Claire loves, Loves, LOVES the water!  Last night it was so nice outside, we decided we needed some pool time while Daddy mowed the yard.  She loves splashing and does not mind getting her and everything else around her soaked, aka, Mommy!

She even took a dive under a few times and came up laughing.  We are definitely going to have a little swimmer on our hands and this Mommy could not be more proud!  

Enjoy the video....Ignore my voice, I was trying to get her to look towards me

My Little Helper

I was cleaning out drawers in our bathroom last weekend and this is what my little helper decided needed to be done.  I'm pretty sure she pulled out every Kleenex in the box, and y'all know I just had to snap a picture of it! Oh and did I mention, she wanted to EAT them afterwards!

18 Months

Well, I hope y'all have been missing me! 
I have taken a new position at work, been traveling and now training two colleagues, so life is a bit hectic over here in Cottontown.  Anyways, Emma Claire is now 18 months old, gasp!  She is growing up so much and definitely has her own personality.  
EC had her check up last Friday and she now weighs 20 lbs and 33 inches tall!  She is going to be a tall girl.  We think she will probably be left handed as well.  She loves to use a fork and spoon and is really into self feeding these days which is AWESOME!  

Emma Claire is taking about 10 to 15 steps at a time and then falls down.  We are so close to walking by ourselves, I'm just so amazed by her and everything she does each day.  She is just a joy and so happy 99% of the time.  We now have 6 teeth and she is cutting one molar on top on each side.  It's funny, I never know when she cuts teeth, I just find them by brushing her teeth which I'm not complaining about, so we are thrilled every time we find a new tooth.
Emma Claire is wearing mostly 18 month clothes and size 3 diapers.  I think we could probably move up to size 4, but those are just a little big on her right now, so size 3 it is.  This sassy girl loves her milk and we go through about 2 to 2 1/2 gallons a week.  She only gets milk at meal times and then water or juice during the day, but mostly water.   She puts herself to bed at night too, around 8 PM she gets her cup of milk and then we lay her down around 8:30 and she sleeps to around 8:30 the next morning.  This little stinker loves to sleep and again, no complaints from the Warren Household!

That is about it for Emma Claire, just keeping us busy.  We have some really cool new, but until the press release is out, I don't want to share.  It's funny and exciting and we never now what new things she will do each day, but she is truly a sassy girl and knows what she wants.  Mom keeps telling me, I was this way...I can hardly believe that, but I'm glad she knows what she wants and goes for it.  She is not afraid to try something new or different which I love and I love to see her independence develop as well.  Hope everyone else is doing well and trying to stay cool!  Thanks for checking in on us and I promise to do better, I miss hearing from everyone!
