She looked like this in my arms:
She was a tiny unsure little girl. She was light as a feather.
This is what she looks like today:
She's a smart, silly, and very out going little girl. Today as I was trying to snap a picture for this post, she gave me nothing but attitude. She's such a little diva. I tried to get her to sit pretty on the stairs and she insisted she had to lay across them. Again, total diva. But I love her so much. It's hard not to laugh at her when she pulls these stunts. She is the character out of both kids. Eriks is the serious one. Her hair has gotten longer but I wish it would grow faster!
Emilija is now only 1 size behind clothes she should be wearing. She should be approaching 24 mos or 2T clothes and this week I went out and bought 18 month jeans and pants because her little belly no longer fits in the 12 mos sizes. I have been buying her 18 mos tops. We are so thankful she is catching up and I also had to buy her new shoes. The size 4's she was wearing in September do not fit anymore so I bought 5's and 1 pair of 6's.
We celebrated her 6 months of being home with this yummy creation from Sam's.Club.
And it seriously was delicious. They will be making Emi's birthday cake next month.
As far as the other things going on in our life...
- Eriks didn't have school on Friday because of the "snow" we got Thursday afternoon/night. There was really nothing there but the problem is that the super wet roads turned to ice overnight when the temps dropped to 15F. In our county alone there were over 350 accidents reported on Friday. Everything will be back to normal tomorrow.
- In other news, in yesterday's mail, Lane received a big envelope from Georgia State accepting him to their law school beginning this fall. YAY!!!! Lane had been stressing over this for months. This is a big weight off of his shoulders knowing that he will indeed by attending law school in the fall.
- I'm still healing from surgery. It's getting better. Still can't drive until Friday. My abdomen has taken on darker shades of purple and blue with bruises. Amazing how it's doing that. It looks worse than it did on surgery day.
- We've got Emi's hearing aid consult next week. So can't wait. I'm ready to watch her react to sounds for the 1st time and start living life in a hearing world.
