Back to work

Emi is now 6 weeks old- I was with some friends the other night and one said- so she's like 4 weeks now? I almost agreed and then said no- almost 5- wait- this is 6 weeks! Time is flying by- I don't know how my maternity leave went so fast, but it came and went and now I am "back" at work. I'm still at home, Peter is still going to college and Emi is with me for the day. I used to be able to get most of what I wanted to get done in the mornings and then after Pete went to bed at night, but now I feel like I am working all day to get the same amount done. I'm sure in a week or two I'll figure something out but it is still better than dropping her off at college too! I know that I wouldn't have been ready to do that!

 Our friend Shana had her baby and guess what? ANOTHER girl! Claire Leeann- She is about a month younger that Emelia and we went to have a playdate with her and her older sister, Julia, the other day. By the end, both babies were hungry and not very cooperative but we still got a picture of the two. Julia is just a little smaller than Emi is but still scruched up like a new baby. (I don't know why these pictures are turned so funny- I don't know how to fix that)
 We also went to see Santa at WSU- it was a great deal- no lines, free cookies and juice and a Santa that talked and talked to the kids- Pete loved shaking the jingle bells with Santa but when it came time to sit on his lap... a no go. There were no tears like last year though so we are thinking next year is going to be great. (I also want to point out that if you enlarge the picture above you can see how Emi is sleeping- I think that is exactly how she was inside too- I always felt jabs right where her hand would have been and was convinced that she was facing the wrong way and was always asking Suzanne if she was backwards and that I was feeling lots of "kicks" down low- it must have been her hands. She sleeps like this a LOT!)
 Emelia on the other hand didn't mind- she slept through the whole experience!

 Snuggling with her sheep in her crib.
With the bear at 6 weeks. Lots of people have been asking if the kids look alike- here is Pete with the bear at 6 weeks- I'll let you leave a comment to let me know what you think- Emi is obviously in the pink and Petey in the yellow.
(Mom- I thought that you would appreciate the fact that I gave you a picture instead of you having to flip back though the blog!)

I can't believe there is a baby who is smaller (leaner)than Pete was at the same age, but along comes my Emu. :) Yes, they do look alike, I think! Im with Pete...I wouldn't sit on that ol' guy's lap either. ;)

Erin, I think Emi looks a lot like you and Pete is more of a combo. Regardless, super cute kids. I love reading your blog!
