This weekend we didn't have any plans going into it which is unusual for us. Thursday night was ROUGH because we lost power until 4:30am. Emma woke up every two hours probably because it was HOT and she could hear every noise without her noise machine. I was zombie like at work Friday so we just took it easy Friday night and went to bed early.
Saturday morning tommy played golf early with Evan so Emma and I just relaxed at the house. She took a great morning nap so I was able to clean the house and enjoy a quiet breakfast.
Midday we walked over to the Hartmans to say hello to Andrews parents and see the tree they were having to chop up as a result of the storm. That afternoon my friend Lauren who lives in New York came to visit for a few hours. She just got a job with snapchat and was working for Twitter. Her life is much cooler than mine. Some baby snaps for your entertainment!
Then Saturday night my parents, nana, Bonnie, Brett and collier came over for dinner. We just did coronation chicken and rice with fruit and ice cream for dessert. My parents did most of the cooking.
Sunday Emma slept in so we didn't make it to church. Oops. We then just relaxed and went to the Hartmans for grilled pizza for lunch. The whole family took naps in the afternoon and we went to 8 degrees Fahrenheit to try thier rolled ice cream. It was an experience and yummy!
we ate leftovers for dinner before calling it a night. Not a super thrilling weekend but one of good quality family time.
Emma is changing so much lately and I just want to soak every minute of the weekends up with her!

This weekend was nice with a few activities coupled with some down time.
Friday night we just walked over to Andrew and Kyles for an hour or so before we needed to get Emma ready for bed. We just visited and let the dogs play! After Emma was down we ate dinner and watched the Olympics. Perfect end to a very long week.
Saturday morning we got ourselves up and ready for the day and around 10:30 we headed to Krog Street Market to walk around and grab some lunch. I got food from Yalla (falafel YUM) and Tommy got hot chicken from Richard's. We got a beer from Hop City and some ice cream from Jeni's for dessert (MY FAV). Emma did great and it was nice to just do something the three of us.
Photo shoot before we left. I just LOVED this dress!
That afternoon we went to my sister's to hang out with her and some of her college friends. I hadn't seen many of them in a long time. We had appetizers and drinks before we headed home for bedtime. After Emma went to sleep the Hartmans came over and we grilled some pizza and watched the olympics. Relaxing night in!
Sunday we went to church (I forgot to take a picture of Emma in her sweet smocked watermelon outfit boo) and were home the rest of the day. My college roommate from Freshman year lives in Athens and she came with her mom and husband to meet Emma. We visited with them in the afternoon then just cooked at home and went to bed early. I think I'm coming down with a sinus infection so I'm just not feeling 100%. My usual first month of school illness. Hoping to feel better in a few days. Sunday night Emma was in rare form. She is just babbling away and changes so much all the time which is SO MUCH FUN!
Great weekend and already looking forward to next weekend!!!
Update on school: School is HECTIC right now because my AP got promoted to the middle school, then my CST got promoted to my AP who is now on maternity leave, and so we are busy interviewing for CST as well as we added a literacy coach position. We are down people and so I'm having to pick up a bunch of random things that typically aren't on my plate. The only fortunate thing is the day goes by VERY quickly so before I know it I'm heading home to pick up the munchkin and all is right in the world.

Weight: 15 pounds (yes you read that right)
Clothes: pajamas size six months everything else is still three months
Diaper size: size one but will probably switch to size two soon
Sleep: goes to bed between 7:45-8 and sleeps until 6:30 on workdays and 7 am on the weekends.
Likes: starting to like tummy time, loves her paci for naps, her butterfly toy that crinkles, Sophie the giraffe, and talking to mommy and daddy!
Dislikes: naps in the crib (still), when she stops moving in her car seat and that's all I can think of right now!
This past month Emma started daycare and mommy started a new school year. She is adjusting well to school by eating well and starting to get longer naps. We had to switch from the swaddle to the sleep sack because daycare can't swaddle and so far she's done well with that transition. Her teachers are very sweet and love on her all day. She is the youngest in her class by only one week. A friend from work is starting with her daughter next month so then Ada will be the youngest. We are all on a new routine (Tommy gives the morning bottle and drops her off on his way to work) and getting in a new normal. Emma's neck is getting so much stronger and she likes to be supported while sitting up so she can see what is going on around her.
Emma you are the light of all our days and watching how you change daily brings us so much joy!!
