So, if anyone is still checking this after a year of no updates, I am amazed and applaud you:) My Mac died and I just couldn't stand to use a PC. I now finally have a new Mac, so I guess I have no excuses for not staying up-to-date.
Emery is now a little over two. She is still the most amazing little human to grace the planet. She is still a lover, never hesitates to give lots of hugs and kisses. It is so sweet when she tells me "I love you too Mommy". She talks and talks. Although, many might not believe that because she is still very shy in large groups. Inside the home though, she says anything and everything. Funny things she says: when she is leaving a room she will turn to you with her finger out and say with authority "I will be right back", or when she wants some love she says "I need a kiss on the lips" or when she is being bossy "Shh, no talking please" or "Be nice!". Her obsession for the last 4 months has been my make-up, primarily lip gloss or chapstick. So for Christmas, she received a set of 6 princess chapsticks of her own. She carries at least one in her hand 24/7. I mean goes to sleep holding it and it is the first thing she asks for in the morning. Lately, she has been carrying about 3 in her purse and bringing the purse everywhere. She also loves ballet. We took her to the Nutcracker for Christmas and she sat there wide-eyed the full 2 hours. She now wants to wear a tutu everyday and really is quite good with some ballet moves:)
On November 9, 2011 our hearts were broken by the loss of our pregnancy at 5 months. We had been expecting a little boy to bless our family in March 2012. This loss has taken a piece of our hearts. I am so thankful for my wonderful family, friends, but most of all my husband, who thru this process I have come to admire more and have pulled from his strength to work thru this. I know people want to know if we are okay and we are but this loss has changed us forever. A day will not pass that he is not missed, longed for, and loved.
That being said, I know 2012 is going to be a great year. We brought in the New Year sitting around a campfire with dear friends. Emery loves the outdoors, like her parents, so camping was an ideal way for our family to welcome all the good 2012 holds for us.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I wish you all the best for 2012. I will try to be more diligent with my blogging:)
