peek of the week {halloween}

I swear, I am doing crafty things! But this little person takes up most of my time these days...


Hubby's company invites employees to bring their children in to trick or treat at Halloween every year. We dressed Emma up as a cupcake and showed her off around his office. No candy, just baby!


She wasn't too thrilled about the costume. Shortly after the last photo was taken, she had a meltdown in the middle of the (quiet) office. Luckily, a bottle was the answer, but she still wasn't crazy about all the strangers fawning all over her. She cried in the car on the way home and then conked out. The lighting in this next photo is awful but I wanted to show off Daddy's Little Pumpkin!


I just realized all the photos show her with her pacifier. She does love that thing.

I'm linking up with Peek of the Week over at Happily Home Sewn!

emma {2 months}

My girl is 2 months old today!


Our little family is gradually settling into a routine. We're all getting more sleep and Hubby and I are figuring out what our new "normal" looks like.


I love her smile! It melts me every time.

At two months, Emma...

~focuses on objects and follows them when they move
~coos and uses her voice (other than crying, although she does that too :) )
~is beginning to reach for things and people
~loves to snuggle with Mama and Daddy
~catnaps during the day but is sleeping longer stretches at night
