Emma | 3 months

I can't believe Emma is already 3 months old. It has gone by so fast! Well, not the first four weeks, but everything else has. :) Emma is now on a set eating/sleeping schedule, which has made all our lives easier. She eats at 6:00 a.m., 9:30, 1:00, 4:00, 7:00, and 10:00 p.m. She has been getting much better at having about an hour and half of good awake time before napping between each feeding. She loves taking baths and kicks her legs the whole time. We have been working so hard to make sure she turns her head both ways so she won't have to get a helmet like Braden. So far she doesn't have any flat spots! We love to watch her become more and more alert and aware of what's going on around her. We love this stage!

Here is the comparison between Braden and Emma. I think they look a lot more similar than these pictures show. 

Since I never got to post Emma's one and two month pictures, I'll just include them here!

Family Pictures

While Kristin and Greg were here over the weekend, we decided to do some informal family pictures. We got the kids dressed, walked to the building across the street, and were done in fifteen minutes! My kind of photo shoot :) Braden was in a crazy mood since stake conference was right during his nap earlier that day. It was right before bed, so I'm actually surprised we got any pictures without him crying! 

Kristin is so good at taking pictures and Greg did a fantastic job getting all of us to smile and laugh before each shot. They make a great team!

While Devin and I were taking some pictures of the two of us, Greg was showing Braden the screen of that electrical monitor (see picture at the end). When Greg had to put him down to help Kristin, Braden had a meltdown. He cried full volume in this position for a good two minutes! I love this picture because it pretty much sums up all of the emotions he was feeling during pictures. 

Emma's Blessing

We blessed Emma on April 12, 2015. It was such a beautiful day! It was really different not having any of either of our families there, but we have become close to a lot of our ward members so we didn't feel alone. Emma was very well behaved and stayed quiet throughout the blessing. We had purchased her blessing dress a few months before her blessing so it was tight and very short by the time she actually wore it. I loved seeing her little legs with those flower shoes.
