She also loves to give him hugs and kisses, she always asks if she can before she does it, which is really nice, we can make sure that she doesn't maul him!
On Sunday we got to come home from the hospital(I wouldn't have minded staying a little longer). Emma was so excited to see us and have her little brother home. She sat on Grandpa's lap with James and read him stories, she has a couple of interactive books that she tried to get him to participate in.
Here are some pictures from before James was born, I got a little behind and decided it was time to get everything caught up before I kept posting more. This group of pictures include pictures of Emma attempting a summersault, she hasn't gotten all the way over on her own yet, but she sure is trying. It also has pictures of Emma from the first time I straightened her hair, she looks so grown up. I also had a baby shower before James was born, of course I forgot to take pictures until everyone had left, but I did get a picture of the diaper cake that my wonderful friend Nicole made for me. Thanks to Christa and Nicole for throwing the shower, it was so much fun to get together and visit.

He is quite the mellow baby. Although he did not like his bath much. He got to hang out with daddy for awhile in the nursery while mommy was resting. He did give us a little scare during delivery, his heart rate dropped quite a bit, the nurse and dr. were running around the room and trying different things to get his heart rate up. They finally put something in my IV and that seemed to do the trick, but I was really nervous for a few minutes. Thank heavens everything was alright.

Emma just had her first hair cut a few weeks ago. She wasn't really sure about what was going on, a little nervous, but now she talks about how we go to Aunt Anita's house to get our hair cut, and keeps asking to go again. Since her hair has been cut it has gotten a lot easier to do, less tangles. She doesn't cry so much when I do her hair, it's really nice!!! Thanks to Aunt Anita for doing such a great job.
Emma has been doing so many things recently, she has advance to a toddler bed, which was much easier than we expected. She fell out the first night, but she has done great ever since. She likes to read the easy reader scriptures with Daddy before bedtime. She still loves to sing, and she is getting better and better everyday. She loves to snuggle with Mommy on the couch, recently she has seen me have some very terrible contractions, and she has heard Geoff reminding me to breath in the past, so now she will tell me to breath, and if she's not busy she will even come and hold my hand...it is so sweet. Geoff and I feel so blessed to have such a sweet little girl.
