The exciting part of every doctor visit is seeing how much she's grown. Paul and I guess her height and weight before we go to the doctor. At 2 weeks I won both the height and weight catagories. This time Paul won the weight and I won the height! She is now 11pounds 3oz (she has officially passed Franklin who is about 10.5lb) and 22 1/2in. (Just to give you reference she was 8lb and 19 3/4in at birth and 8lb 9oz and 21in at 2 weeks.) I thought it would be neat to see how she compares to my size when I was a baby so I pulled out my baby book! At birth I was 6lb 14oz and 19 3/4in. At 2months I was 9lb 6oz and 23in. I think it's so neat to see how she compares to me! It also gives me lots of motivation to fill in her baby book so that one day she can look back and see how her child compares to her!
One thing that I cannot find in my baby book is the first time I slept through the night (although I'm pretty sure if you ask my mom she'll tell you it was the day my brother was born - when I was 7...haha)! However, I have Emmie's written all over her baby book...she's already consistently sleeping through the night...woohoo!

When Emmie got up this morning, I fed her and then bundled up Emmie and gathered up Franklin and out we went to play! Emmie was not very entertained by the snow...she was still recovering from being stuffed into her snow sack (she's pretty sure we were trying to torture her).
Franklin decided that 7 inches of snow was a lot more fun than a measly 2 inches! He sniffed around and plowed through the snow. We went and woke up Paul and he came out and attempted to throw snowballs for Franklin (he'd been pretty entertained by this the night before). The snow was to fluffy in the morning but we went back out after it started to melt and it was perfect for snowballs and snowmen! This evening Franklin kept going back outside and trying to find the snowballs from earlier...he also discovered that the snow was pretty tasty! He's pretty worn out tonight...he went to bed around 8...just couldn't take it anymore!

...you can't help but look forward to getting out of bed and starting the day!
(especially when you've gotten a full night's sleep!)

On a side note...yesterday Emmie made a new friend! We went to visit my friend Tiffany and her baby, Josie, who is 3 weeks younger than Emmie. Josie is so cute and Emmie told me she is looking forward to hanging out often with Josie!

So...in conclusion the good news: Emmie can poop on her on, the bad news: I have to eat prunes (insert more gagging noises)
When can I start giving her baby food prunes?
