This weekend we took Emerson to her first theme park, Sea World! Travis and I thought that it would be a good place for Emerson to visually explore. She was really good and seemed to have a lot of fun!

Time to eat but mom HAD to take a picture!

Having fun at Sea World

Emerson's evaluation at Early Steps went just as expected. She is still having trouble with holding up her head while on her stomach, so they recommended that Emerson start physical therapy. We fully agree with that decision! Emerson is due to start physical therapy in the next 2 weeks. We have been working very hard on this development, but of course we are open to new ideas! Emerson works so hard and we continue to see a lot of growth and progress!
*Her other results came back looking great! Her verbal skills were very high....looks like we might be in trouble! :-)

Emerson doing very well with her head in the Bumbo.

She's had enough. I don't know if I should laugh or cry at this face?!?!

She's discovered her legs and loves to walk (surf) around.

Always up for a stroller ride but don't forget the Nuk-Nuk!

OMG -- her frowny faces are so daggum cute -- they make me want to cry with her. Sue Ann told me today that the educational literature encourages EARLY trips to theme parks -- no sense waiting until they are 3 or 4. I love you!

I think you should enter Emerson in the "cutest baby" contest! She would kill the competition! So glad to hear everything is going well.

I love all these pictures (seriously, I've made all my co-woarkers look at them) but the dancing 4 month picture is by far the most fun!
Rock on, Miss Emerson!

Hi Guys!!!!

Sign me up for Team Emerson, NOW!!!

I would love to participate in the Buddy Walk and I'm sure some of her old NICU nurses would love to join as well.

Let me know what I have to do -

Give Emerson a big kiss for me!
