Happy New Year!

I can't believe it is 2011!!! The Whiteheads have a few goals that they want to reach this year, we would love to have our own home this year and a new car and I am desperate for a new couch, but the first 2 come first!!!

This is going to be an exciting year, Emma is going to learn so much and I can't wait. I am really enjoying her at the moment even though she is making my heart race with her climbing episodes, we call a little monkey!!

We had a wonderful time with family in Port Elizabeth. I was worried that Emma wasn't going to take to anyone there but she just loved my mum and gran. It was so lovely to see my neice and nephew interact with Emma, it was just too precious! I didnt want my mum to miss a thing and was so happy when Emma started to walk just before we went, so PE was her practicing ground and she was waddling all over!

Our munchkin is 1

I can't believe Emma is 1!!! When she was a few weeks old and we were told that she would have to be on reflux meds for at least 4 months, I thought that this was going to be the longest 4 months of my life!! Well, 4 months came and went and although Emma is still on her meds, she is now 1 and doing so well and I look back and think, Oh my gosh, we did it!! So many people said that you will get through it and we did!!

Emma, my precious angel, you are such a joy to us, everyday you learn something new and everyday you make us laugh and do silly things to entertain you. We love you so much and can't imagine life without you.

Emma's party was so much fun, she was such a super star. She didn't quite know what to do with the icing on her cake and didn't like her hands getting dirty so I took the icing off and away she went, yum yum yum!

Here's to another year of happiness, fun and lots of laughter!!!

Emma has a new perspective on life!!!

Emma has starting pulling herself to stand, causing Lance and I to have many heart attacks, she can pull to stand but hasn't quite figured out how to go back down without hitting her head!!

We found some baby swings at Mitchell Park and Emma loved them, she loved to watch all the other children running around and swinging next to her. We can't wait to take her back for Adam's birthday party.

Happy 10 Months

I can't believe Emma is 10 months, my how time is just flying by! Emma is crawling so nicely now and gets so excited when she sees you, her little legs can't go fast enough! She is getting into everything, but i honestly don't mind, we are enjoying her so much and I love watching how her little mind works, how she studies things and how she loves to touch the things she shouldn't!! LOL
The days are drawing closer when she will pull herself to stand, she can only pull up to her knees but she is trying hard and will pull up on anything, the couch, the coffee table, your pants!!! And she just loves to stick her hands into the washing and throw it all about.
My angel, you are getting cuter by the day and i just love hearing your precious voice and laughs, i love when you talk to daddy and when you get so excited to see us when we come home. I love you so much

9 months

Can you believe it, 9 months gone and 3 more to go until she is a year! Wow!

Emma is such a little sweetheart, everyday she does something to entertain us and want us to teach her more!! I love the way she is picking up on all the actions and facial expressions and tries them out.

Emma has started to mimick our laugh, when i laugh, she will laugh, its so funny! And she loves to raise her hands in the air and shout yaaaaaaaaayyy and i mean shout!! i love it!

Emma is still only crawling backwards, i just need to be patient and wait, she will go into first gear when she is ready! She is eating finger foods nicely now and will stare at you if you eating, wondering why she isn't getting any!

8 months gone, soon approaching the 9 month mark!! Can you believe it, Emma is getting so big!

I am really enjoying wrapping her up in clothes these days, what a change from wearing nothing during those summer months and i now she is bundled from head to toe!!

Emma has 2 teeth and will hopefully be crawling soon, she has gotten up onto all fours for a while now, so i'm sure it won't be long.

The reflux is still very bad, we have had a few scary episodes with her choking lately, we have been told to increase her meds until she is standing / walking and then try and wean her off them. It's very frustrating and i am constantly worrying about it! I hope she will grow out of it but with me having the same problem.....well lets just keep praying!!

Here are some pics of her at the beach, she loves the sand and loves watching the waves.

COLIC.... what colic mom??!!

We can safely say that the colic is a thing of the past!!! Emma is such a cutie now, talks non stop ( Lance says just like her mother!!) and is smiling all the time... we are really enjoying her now! :)
