Heidi and her chocolate

video

Well lets start with a little story... if you all do not know, Heidi LOVES chocolate! The obsession with chocolate got even worse while she was pregnant with Emmalyn. Lets just say going to the grocery store was a treat. Now lets get to the video... we, or should I say I like to harass Emmalyn when she is sleeping. In this video Heidi gets the trophy. I think Emmalyn will also have an obsession with chocolate. When the lighting gets better take a look at Emmalyns outfit (the left side to be exact). I think those spots on her outfit are what you would call CHOCOLATE stains from her mother holding her and eating what she loves at the same time.

Emmalyn's first cooking lesson!

Well our little one is already learning the Knisley way. At only 3 weeks old she is already learning her way around the kitchen. Emmalyn and mom are preparing an Italian feast, or maybe it is just that mom and daughter can not be separated. I always thought those baby Bjorn things were a waste of money, but i guess it gets the job done.

Sleeping beauty

a little early for her christmas jammies but they were just too cute!

one of the few pictures of me and Em... self portrait of course
sleeping so peacefully

such a sweet baby

my favorite picture of Nathan and Em so far





Here are a few new pictures of Emmalyn on her 2 week birthday! We are a little partial but we think she gets sweeter by the day.

Our determined 2 week old




This was probably a fluke but the other day Emmalyn was playing on her play mat when Nate called me in the room to tell me she was trying to roll over! Of course I'm thinking, yeah right, a two week old? not possible. When I got into the living room she was indeed tring to roll over! By the time I got the camera ready she was attempting the roll again and got stuck half way! She seems to be a very strong little girl. Already trying to roll and always lifting her head up on her own to see what's going on around her. We are so proud :)

Miss photogenic











Here are a few new pictures of our little peach. She is changing every single day! Her little hands and fingers are getting chubby as well as her feet. I discovered yesterday when she was giving me the worlds prettiest smile that she may in fact have her mother's dimples :) She is so beautiful, we can't believe she is all ours to watch grow and change each day!

Comfortable?




Emmalyn has been sleeping in the funniest positions these past few days so we decided to capture them before she stopped doing it. She is just so sweet when she sleeps but Nathan and I can't help but stare and laugh when she sleeps like this.... :)

1 week old!


Well mom, dad, and Em made it through the first week! It flew by so fast! Emmalyn had her first check up at the doctors yesterday. She impressed the doctor with her weight gain.. our little milk monster weighed in at 7.1! When we left the hospital last Thursday she was at 6.11! At least I know all those late night feedings are paying off! :) She was still looking a little yellow so she had her blood drawn (which she did not appreciate one bit) and her "billi" level was at 15, the high normal range. She has to go back on Thursday to get another blood test just to be sure it's getting better. The doctor said he's not conserned so mom and dad are resting easy right now. She has been such a great baby girl all week. The first few nights were tough but each day it gets easier and her sleep pattern is getting more consistant. I find myself just sitting and watching her all day long. We are truly blessed with the best gift in the world!

Our Special Gift!










Here is our little angel, Emmalyn Georgia Sharp! Born November 3! She is perfect in every way possible! 6lbs. 13 oz. 19 inches long. She is such a great sleeper right now, so quiet and content 100% of the time! We are truly blessed with this little bundle of sweetness. We just stare at her all the time thinking how beautiful she is! Parenthood is an amazing thing and we are loving every single moment of it!
