Embry: 7-8 Weeks and Thanksgiving

I plan on doing a Two Month post soon with all her new stats (weight, how she's sleeping, etc...)! For now, here's what we've been up to the past two weeks.

A Week in Austin

Embry and I went into Austin for the holiday week three days ahead of Jacob. We rode into town Sunday with Auntie Ruthie. She was a perfect angel the whole car ride and didn't make a peep! Embry got to meet lots of new people in Austin! My mom had a "sip-n-see" Monday night where she met 36 new friends =) Tuesday my Grandma and Grandpa Premer got into Austin and she got to meet her third great grandma! And a first, her great grandpa Premer! Wednesday my aunt, uncle and cousins arrived from Missouri. Thursday Embry met her Uncle Adam and lots of people from Jacob's side of the family! Saturday she met her Great Grandpa Gordon.

Embry LOVED this toy my parents got for their house!

Thanksgiving Day

We spent the first half of the day with Jacob's family where Embry got to meet Uncle Adam and more family. We spent the second half with my family (where lots of pictures were taken, surprise, surprise!).

Her "pants" were a little short!

Decorating for Christmas

We made the decision to go back to Dallas on Saturday evening! So glad we did! Especially after reading all the Facebook posts about I-35 being a parking lot on Sunday. We wanted to spend that Sunday just the three of us and kick off the Christmas season. We got up early and went to get Embry's first tree!

The big finale

Smiles Galore

Starting Monday November 26 on her eight week birthday Embry started "social smiling". She had been smiling for the past few weeks but you really, really had to work for it and I still think it was pretty random. But the past week she has totally changed and is just all smiles and coos. It's been the most fun week thus far! It's so cute that she knows my voice. I'm pretty sure she knows Jacob's voice too, but she definitely will smile on cue with my voice so far.

Also, this week on Wednesday I took her to the pediatrician for one last check up before her sedation Thursday morning and what do ya know, she had an ear infection. I continue to be amazed at what a great baby she is. She was never fussy, slept  bad, etc. She started Amoxicilliin Wednesday evening. You would never know with the smiles and coos we got all week from her!

Her play mat is definitely a favorite!
