All mixed up

Somehow, my posts went out of order. Not sure how I did that. Make sure you check out the slide show from our Borger trip. It is hiding below the post with the pictures in the towel even though it was posted after that.

Here is a picture of Emma chatting with Gramma and Granddad Thompson on the webcam. She loves getting to listen to and see her grandparents on the computer!

Happy Monday everyone!

Sweet pea eating sweet peas!!!

Emma moved on from formula and rice cereal tonight. She ate sweet peas for the first time and liked it! She showed a lot more excitement for the sweet peas than she has for the rice cereal. In a few days, maybe we will add in something else exciting... like sweet potatoes or prunes.

Sweet peas on May 24th

Rice cereal on May 22nd

Emma's Half-Birthday

Believe it or not, Emma is six months old today. And she had a big day. She had her well baby check up at the doctor and got two shots. :( Then we went the the Astros game. We had a great time with friends from Pearland Bible study even though the Astros lost. They did have a great play with Matsui stealing home. (check out the clip on the Astros web page.) After the game, we came home and Emma ate some rice cereal. I think she wore more than she ate tonight, but at least she had fun. Then she had her bath which she always loves. And to finish off the night, she talked to her Aunt Melissa and Uncle Greg while she played in her towel her Gramma Thompson made for her. I just had to share some pictures.

Pictures from Borger

I wanted to post some pictures from our trip to Borger. We had a great visit with my dad. He couldn't believe how much Emma has grown. I also learned a good lesson when packing for Emma. I had packed for warm weather because it was in the high 80s in Borger on Friday. Emma had cute little sundresses and capris and only one sweatshirt. A cold front came through while we were there - high around 55. Brrrr!!! Next trip I will be more prepared.

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Baby Girl in Big Borger

We have all traveled to Borger to visit Grandpa Spelce. We flew in late last night. Emma had her own seat and did well on the flight again. These little hour and a half flights are hopefully preparing her for the eight and a half hour flight to Hawaii that is in three weeks.

We hit some of the highlights of Borger today - Walmart, JCPenney, Lorene's, and Moore's Pharmacy. I think this was my first trip to Walmart since I graduated without running into someone I know. Maybe I was just too focused on Emma to pay attention. I always look forward to eating the chili rellenos at Lorene's. I haven't found them anywhere else that can compare.

Tonight, we went to dinner with some great family friends, Tina & DC Taylor. We went to the XXL Ranch. It is about 20 miles outside of Borger going towards Dumas - pretty far out in the country. It is a very relaxed atmosphere and the food was really good. Perfect for catching up with friends and family.
