North Carolina Debut

This past weekend we headed to North Carolina to visit Nathan’s family.  Our little munchkin did really well, sleeping both ways on the 4 hour ride.  She also had her 3 month “birthday” while we were there!

Her grandparents held an open house on Sunday afternoon and Emmy Cate met more relatives and family friends than we can count, including her new cousins, Macy and Makayla, who were 10 days old.  Emmy Cate looks like a giant next to them!!  We did try to weigh her and estimate her to weigh 14.5 pounds already!  Thanks to everyone who came to meet Miss Emmy Cate.  It was great to see you all!

She got in lots of cuddle time with her grandparents, especially Papaw, who we think has a career as a nanny after he retires!  I think it’s safe to say that Emmy Cate already has him wrapped around her little finger!!  Once he buys her that pony that she has been wanting, she will come to visit all of the time! 


She is changing so quickly, it’s hard to keep up with all of the new things she learns everyday!!  She has started batting at and grabbing toys, mostly on her playmat and in her bouncy seat.  It won’t be long before she is grabbing everything in sight including hair, jewelry and just everything and putting it in her mouth!!  That is one stage I hope she doesn’t stay in long!!  Also, she has started rubbing her little eyes when she is sleepy, which is really cute.  Most importantly she has really started working on sitting up, mainly just throwing her weight around when she is in a sitting position trying to stabilize herself.  I work with her everyday to encourage her to sit up and to bear weight on her legs.  She has to catch up with her cousin Atticus, who is exactly one month older than Emmy Cate!!  See what he can do:
