Emily's First "Buffy Night"

My best friends Linda, Kristin and I started "Buffy Night" when Buffy the Vampire Slayer was still on the air.  We would take turns making/bringing dinner and we'd sit and enjoy the newest Buffy episode.  At first I only watched because it was something to do... it didn't take long to become hooked.  After Buffy ended, we continued our "Buffy Night" tradition.  We just started from the beginning and would watch two episodes a week.  Now that they both moved away, we always try to have a "Buffy Night" when they are visiting.
Linda (who is really the instigator of Buffy Night) is in town from Japan.  We couldn't let this trip come and go without a "Buffy Night"!  We watched a couple of episodes including my favorite episode "Doppelgangland".  I only thought to snap a few pictures of Linda feeding Ems in between episodes.
Ems wore her "I <3 My Auntie" onesie!!  It was a great "Buffy Night"... I hope there is time or another one before Linda has to leave again.

Emily has started going to a play group at the library.  Linda's sister, Elizabeth takes her son there (he is the cutie in orange below).  It is specifically for babies that can't walk yet.  This was Emily's first time going, and luckily for her Linda was there too.  She got to sing songs and play with Linda.

After playtime did not end at the library.  She has also just started playing in her bouncy seat.  It is still a bit big for her.  We have to put a blanket in the seat with her so she fits and David put a ream of paper in the bottom so her feet can push on something.  She is so dang cute in her little bouncy seat though!!
You can tell by the photos below that playtime can be REALLY exhausting!
I love how cute this is with her little feet on the paper!

Wednesday Weigh In

Sorry - I did Weigh In last week.... I just didn't get around to posting it.  I weighed in exactly the same.  I was satisfied with this.  The summer has not been my friend as far as headaches go.  Last week I had headaches EVERY single day!!  It was very draining and annoying.

This week, I was again plagued with headaches!  Summertime is not really my friend.  I didn't make it to the gym... I WILL get to the gym next week.... You guys better hold me to it because I gained a pound this week. YIKES!

Emily weighed in at 10lbs, 5oz! And I am still down 10.6 lbs.

Celebrating 4th of July & Week 17 Photo

Week 17 - She loved celebrating the 4th of July this week.  She got to hang out with Papa and see fireworks from the 26th floor of my work.  It was a lot of fun.

Wednesday Weigh In - Week 6

I lost 2.4 last week for a total of 11.6.   I am really excited.  Praying it continues.  
Emily weighed in at 10.8 lbs.  She is so incredible adorable.
