Happy Birthday Emma!

Emma Cate - 6 months

I can't believe our little Ems is 6 months old today.

Time and I now have an abusive relationship, ever since Emma Cate was born. Most times I'm on the edge of my seat waiting for moments to come (first words, first step...) until I realize it's all going waaay to fast. I happily marvel at all of the changes in her and try to quickly dismiss the fact that I'm not getting any younger.

This year's Grammy Awards was a real eye-opener, not recognizing most of the nominees and performers is proof that I'm in fact becoming an old fogie. AND soon enough I will be uttering the words Emma turn down that music.

Gah! THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BABY! She is just getting cuter & cuter and more and more beautiful hun....I swear...Happy 6 month's sweet little Emma! I completely understand the time abuse. It is no joke...and goes way, WAY to fast. But, as far as the music goes....she might just be telling YOU to turn it down( like my girls sometimes have to say to me! ) ;)

Found you through Design Mom. Love your blog, your style and that precious babe. My youngest is almost 6 months too. I know exactly what you mean about feeling like an old fogie.

Thank you so much ladies!!
@Jamie this photo was actually taken with my iPhone using Instagram (it's a free App) and it applies cool filters to photographs. For this one, I superimposed it on top of a non-filtered layer (in Photoshop) of the same photo to get a more subtle look and removed the frame that it automatically adds to the photo.

Hi Elizabeth! It's actually not a sheet - it's a Carter's receiving blanket (swaddle sheet)
