Emma Kate was an angel her first day of daycare. She was definitely the cutest girl on the block. Mom had to work for the first time in 12 weeks. As you can see, Emma Kate LOVES her bunny hat. :-)

Daycare, Flynns, and Halloween


I’m a slacker. I haven’t updated the blog as often as I should. Here are a bunch of photos over the last couple of weeks. As always, click to enlarge:

Lots and lots of photos


We’re members at the First United Methodist Church in Griffin, GA. Alison & I joined the choir a couple years ago, and are so grateful to have a core group of friends there that we love doing stuff with. Amazingly, 3 out of the 4 couples that hang out together got pregnant at the same time. And the 4th couple is pregnant now! Valerie & Dan gave birth on July 13 to Brittain Olivia Gill. We gave birth to Emma Kate on August 15. And Kate & Justin gave birth to Robert John Evans on August 16. (They already have one daughter – Leah.) Steve & Erin are parents of Will and are expecting their second in February.

Friday night we went to a fabulous party at Justin & Kate’s. Kate’s desserts were heavenly! If you need a caterer for any event, contact me and I’ll put you in touch with her. We spent the night laughing and playing Cranium.

Everyone at Kate & Justin's

Sunday after church we (everyone except Steve & Erin) joined Seth & Tara at Spicy Thai for lunch. The portions are small, but the food’s good.

Those crazy church choir friends


Today Emma Kate her first unpleasant doctor’s visit. She had four painful vaccine shots. Alison cried about as hard as Emma Kate did. But it was only 30 seconds of screaming (from EK) and the pain was over. You couldn’t help but feel bad for the little girl. She was laying there without a care in the world and all of a sudden she feels not one, but 4 separate jolts of pain in her legs.

She is continuing to gain weight and is now up to 11 pounds 7 ounces! She’s in the 75th percentile. She didn’t get any taller this time, but her 21.5″ is still above average and the doctor thinks she will continue to be slightly above average height.

In two months EK goes back for another painful round of shots. Poor girl!

The pediatrician recommended a product called Gripe Water by Baby’s Bliss to help with her fussy spells. I found some at one of the small local pharmacies and we’re going to try it out. I’ll let you know if it works.

We can’t really tell if the chamomile tea is helping. At least it pacifies her while she’s drinking it. Beyond that, we’re not sure.
