New Discovery

Emma discovered what happens when she blew air into her bottle. She wasn't thrilled. :)

Moving Target

It's hard to get a picture because Emma is a constantly moving target. She wiggles so much the pictures usually come out blurry. She's still cute though. :P

Kitchen Adventures: Spicy Cajun Chicken

Full Title: Spicy Cajun Chicken with Smashed Sweet Potato and Fresh Corn Salsa aka... More Okra!!
Ingredients: Corn on the cob, Cilantro, Chili, Green Onions, Tomatoes, Limes, Sweet Potatoes, Chicken Breasts, Cajun Seasoning, Polenta, Bacon, Okra, Feta Cheese
I like okra. It's weird. It can go slimy if cooked too long. But after this dish, I've decided I only like it if it is sliced up. Whole... Blegh! This is another Jamie Oliver recipe that includes a fresh salsa. It can make any chicken dish taste AMAZING. The fresh crisp corn and tomatoes brighten up the chicken and potatoes. Delicious! 651 calories for a big portion.

Anna Mae's Visit

Anna Mae's is a Mennonite restaurant in Millbank with simple but extremely tasty food. We went there with Emma and Uncle Drew on Labor Day weekend. Emma had her lunch with us.
We sat by a window that looks out onto the front entryway. She had a few admirers. :)

Schooling Uncle Drew

"Can you believe this guy? He calls this programming!"
"Uncle Drew just give me the laptop I'll show you how..."
"You need something Pops?"

Emma - 7 Months Old

My ball of goo is 7 months old!! 

Emma is full of energy and on the go 24/7. If you put her down in the living room and go to the kitchen, she WILL find you... she might be sobbing and army crawling but she will do it! We can run races with her up and down the hallway as she chases us in her walker. The last week or so she's started to pull herself onto things. She's active even when she is sleeping... basically doing laps around her crib. I spend my days trying to harness this energy, stopping her from putting everything in her mouth and enjoying her little changes. The last few days she's started to "talk" with little coos and goos. The picture below captures her mid-coo. 

Like the last couple of months, the photo shoot was interesting. I had to stop her from eating her foot...

...eating the "set"...

...being silly... 

..and being sad. 

She's easy to turn around though.

That's my chick! 

I Love Google Auto Awesome

This is an "artsy" film made by Google Auto Awesome. I loaded some short videos into Google Photos just to save them. It made an "Auto Awesome" video of them. Laughing butt off commencing. Update: Can't get the sound to work on here... this is the direct link
