The Rollover Video!!  We are so excited to have caught Emmy Cate on video rolling over!!  Sometimes you can't begin to get her to
do it and then other days she will not stop!!  We have so many posts to catch up on from the past week and also we will be debuting
the new site, so check back soon for that!!  We are so proud of our little girl changing everyday and she has done so much in the
last week!  After getting in lots of practice rolling over, she has now started rubbing her eyes when she is sleepy, reaching for and
grabbing objects on her playmat, and starting to work on sitting up!

Mom came into town for a few days and we turned her into our photographer to take some family photos.  Emmy Cate will be 3
months old in a couple of days and we realized how fast she is growing so we needed to get some pictures before she is walking!!  
Haha!!  We are headed to North Carolina this weekend for her debut so we will post some updates when we get back in town!

Big news today!  Emmy Cate learned how to roll over!!  She went with the unconventional approach of learning to roll back to front
first, but we are proud of her for getting the hard part over with!!  She worked so hard all day to learn how to do it and at one point,
she wore herself flat out!  I left her on her playmat for a minute and when I came back she was sound asleep mid-roll!  Too funny!  
We have video of the big event as well that we will get posted soon!

We are very excited that we will be debuting a new website design soon!!  It is currently in the works, but the new functionality will
allow for people to comment on posts and subscribe to the "blog" so that they will get notifications of updates.  It should also be
easier to post updates on our end as well.  And last of all, the graphics and format will be completely different and totally custom!  
Can't wait to share it with everyone!!

Two nights ago, Emmy Cate graduated from sleeping in her bassinet to her big girl room!!  She has been sleeping through the
night now since she was 7 weeks so we figured it was about time to move her since she will be 12 weeks already this week!!  So
far, she LOVES being in her room and her cozy crib!  She has kept her same nighttime routine which is bedtime between 9-10,
wake up between 6-7 to eat, and back to sleep again until she finally gets up between 9-10 in the morning!!  She is a wonderful

Her grandparents didn't like the idea of her being upstairs all alone so they bought her a video monitor so mommy and daddy could
watch over her!  Here is her slumbering in her crib and also a shot of what we see on the monitor.  It's pretty neat!

Emmy Cate had another first today!!  Ok, so I know she has never done ANYTHING as of 2 months ago and we are her parents so
we get super excited over anything new!!  But, it was super cute today when Mommy took EC to the pool!!  She had her Huggies
Little Swimmers on and she was stylin' in her cute little suit, hat, and her sunglasses!!  She loves the water and really enjoyed her
dip in the baby pool.

"Mamaw and Papaw" (names still TBD!!  :)  ) were here this past weekend and got in lots of cuddle time with Emmy Cate.  Papaw
pretty much lulled her to sleep the second he got here and they took a nice long nap together!

Emmy Cate has A LOT to say these days!!  Here is a video of some of her playtime!

We went for a long walk today and it was so sunny, Emmy Cate had to break out her shades!!  She has to prove she can take care
of those first before her first pair of Chanel or Gucci!!

Emmy Cate had her 2 month check-up today.  She is doing great!!  She had put on a few pounds ... she is up to 11 lbs., 6 ozs.!!  
That puts her right in the 50-75 percentile.  But the big news is that she grew 2.5 inches in the past month!  At her one month check-
up she was 21 and a quarter and now she is 23 and three quarters, which is in the 90-95 percentile.  That means she is going to
be tall and skinny!!  Mom thinks modeling is in her future.  Daddy thinks that she is going to outgrow him very soon!!

On the downside, she had to have 4 shots and take two medicine droppers of stuff by mouth!  It was absolutely terrible to watch her
little face through all of it.  She screamed like crazy and had real tears!  :(  Poor baby.

We also just got a Bumbo seat for her and tried it out ... here are a couple of silly pics of her!
