All Girl

Ember is all girl sometimes. She loves carrying around her purse and packages. She is ready for her first trip to the mall I think.

It's My Party...

Happy Birthday Miss Ember!
We had a pool part with some of her cousins and family last week for her birthday and had a lot of fun. Here are some pictures of the festivities.
Ember, however, wanted no part of the pool. She was much more interested in other things, like rocks (she gets it from her Dad). She spent most of the party climbing on the rocks. It was fine with me but was still a little funny.She loved the cake. She ate the raspberries on top of it right away but then she didn't know what to do with the rest. She patted it a few times then finally got a bite. She was very dainty and clean about it at first. By the end she was pretty messy though. It was cute to watch.

It is hard to believe it has already been a year since this little girl joined our family. We love her so much.

I had been out of town for a couple days for work and I came home and laid down on the floor. Ember walked around me and then proceeded to sit down on my face. Repeatedly. Oh how nice it is to be home.
Ember loves shoes. She is constantly talking shoes out of our closet and carrying them around the house. One day, Josh found her in our closet with shoes piled one top of her and she was happy as a clam.
She has entered the wonderful world of climbing. She can get on almost all of our chairs which means that everything one the tables is within grasp. Oh what an adventure.
She has begun talking up a storm. I call her a babblefish (from Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy). She loves to turn pages to books and read stories to us. It is pretty cute, especially when she starts to blow bubbles.
