When we found out we were having a girl I took Matt clothes shopping and this is the outfit he picked out. Emily is wearing her first pair of nikes. We have been waiting for some cold weather so she could wear it.
Matt and I participated in our first trunk or treat together:) It was a lot of fun. Emily was a monkey and we were OGs (original gangsters). We had one of those moments were you show up in costume and quickly realize that most of the parents are not in costume. We had a great time and already have plans for next Halloween.
Emily is now able to sit in the high chairs at restaurants. We went out to dinner last weekend and let Emily try out the high chairs there. She loved it. She even got to eat a little dinner while we were there. This girl is growing too quickly. I feel like she does something new everyday.
Our little girl loves getting ready for bed. Sadly going to bed is a whole different story. Here are a "few" pictures of Emily getting ready for bed. She was especially happy tonight she we had to pull out the camera.

We wash her hair every night hoping that it will stimulate some hair growth. It has not work yet, but we will keep trying.

To Emily's credit when she is this cute it is hard to put her to bed, so she might have stayed up just a little bit later :)
Matt got together with some friends to participate in the annual area Mud Run. It is a 4.2 mile run with 32 obstacles designed by navy seals. There were over 600 hundred teams. Matt's team finished in 47 minutes, which is fantastic. They were able to pass 7 teams along the way. All of the team members walked away with plenty of scrapes and bruises, but Matt was the only one that managed to scrape up his face. I was able to watch the first and last obstacles. Below is a short video of what I was able to see. Matt's team members are Chris Chappell, Daniel Brown and Eric Booth. Matt has already tried to talk me into doing it next year. I am not sold on the idea yet. I think he will have to offer a lot of bribes to get me to agree.
Matt and I have been working diligently on putting Emily's room together. It has taken us a long time, but here are some before and after pictures. We are heading to the hospital THIS THURSDAY at 6:00 AM to be induced. This 9 months has gone by so quickly. We will send out pictures as soon as we can.
So it turns out that I am not the only one who cant wait to see this little face in person. The doctors would like to see it no later then March 18th. That is exactly one week before her original due date. We will head to the hospital March 17th and she should be here the next day, unless she has plans of her own and wants to come earlier.
She is a super active baby already. Every time we have an ultrasound the technicians always comment on how much she moves and how big her feet are. This is a picture of her foot 3 weeks ago. It was 7 cm then and is 7.66 cm today. The told me not to worry because she has long legs to go with her long feet.
Matt and I met in 2005 in a BYU ward and have been teasing each other ever since. Matt and I graduated at the same time. Matt received a degree in mechanical engineering. I graduated in biology. We got married in June of 2007. We moved across the country to beautiful South Carolina. Matt keeps busy with his job at GE. Currently we our playing on a soccer team and we love it.
