All Grown Up

I blinked... and suddenly Emerson grew up.  This week.  All at once.  Let me show you...

As I was making dinner one evening I turn around to discover that Eme had gone into my purse, opened my wallet (and it's a difficult wallet to open folks... even I have trouble at times!) and stolen a $20.  Somehow amidst all the receipts she found the one single $20 dollar bill I had in there.  Caught red handed.  I can only imagine how funny it will be to find her doing this in 15 years...


And then, she started to drink from a bottle.  I'm starting the weaning process a bit sooner than planned due to my impending knee surgery that's scheduled to take place 3 weeks from now.  I'm not going to be able to feed her for a few days with all the drugs and anesthetic... so I decided it was time.  Since she will be turning one in a few weeks I've opted to skip the soy formula (it smells terrible, tastes terrible, and she HATES it) and went straight for the almond milk.  She loves it.  She loves the bottle.  She loves to drink it all by herself.  I haven't shed a tear yet... but I've come close a few times :)  But on the flip side... I'm also scheming about all the dairy products I'm going to indulge in quite soon.  Dairy Queen... watch out.


If that wasn't enough... check out what happened tonight...

Again so much like her mama.  Cookies = instant motivation.


You gotta eat quick around here.  If you listen closely to the video you will hear Caleb begging to come off of his seat.  He was put there for a very good reason.  Apparently it's difficult to not be the center of attention.


She got her cookie.  She was so proud.  Mama is pretty proud too.

Crazy how fast this seems to have happened. Glad the transition to the bottle been a smooth process so far. And way to go Eme on finding the $20!! Good eye :) Indie always goes for my coupons (which warms this frugal mama's heart).

Nice work Emerson! Alexis always goes for Tim's credit card and his cell phone. Just a little scary picture of what's to come. I love Caleb's commentary in the background!
