Emerson is 9 Months! (Almost 2 months ago...)

So, Emerson turned 9 months old on January 23rd right when we were in the middle of selling our house. Fortunately, we connected with Leah a couple of weeks after her birthday, but then we took our trip to New Mexico and...well, long story short, I am just now putting these photos up. In light of the fact that we inadvertently packed our camera battery charger into our storage unit, these are really the only photos you're gonna get from this 8 weeks or so of our lives. :)

Speaking of, we will close on the new house this week. We're just waiting for the title company to set the date, and we'll be ready to go. We've got the paint picked out and our to do list just about ready to go!

The girls are both doing great. Ellie is still hilarious and keeps us on our toes. She's a pretty great two year old, though, and is a pretty awesome kid. I can't believe how fast we're coming up on 3 years old! She's enrolled in preschool at Cottonwood Creek next year, so we're excited about that. Emerson has gotten super smiley lately and also continues to do well. She's still a great sleeper and a good eater also. She's crawling all over the place and pulling up and cruising around. She has stood on her own a couple of times, but no steps yet. I can't believe she'll be one next month! It definitely goes much faster with the second one. There's no denying that...

As you'll see, I can't say that our girls were the most cooperative for this photo shoot, but Leah did a fantastic job with what she had to work with as always. Enjoy!

I thought I'd start with this one as it's fairly representative of how she felt about the whole photo shoot. :)

We did the two of them together last, so these are pretty good considering that. I love their little Elmo outfits.
