It's a new age

Someone pointed out that they had never seen so many pictures of one baby before. Mom and I figured out that we are at about 250 pictures for Emily's first three months. What makes this figure so significant and so inconsequential all at the same time is that all of the pictures are digital. No film was exposed in the making of these pictures. I would be surprised if even fifty of the two hundred and fifty pictures were even printed. Until Emily arrived, I only shot on film. It's amazing and a little sad to see how fast things can change.

My face hurts

Emily's spending a lot of her time studying faces so I try to give her a wide variety of choices. By far smiles get the best response, if you give her a big smile she gives you a smile back. Emily still smiles with her whole body. It's a whole baby body workout.

stop me if you've heard this before

There is nothing like coming home after a long day and seeing Emily peering up over the crib rail looking for you. I'm amazed how long she can hold her head up and just watch you. Mom was worried that after a long day of chasing little kids around all day I'd be too tired to face another one when I got home. The thought never occurred to me. I can't wait to get home and have mom and Emily Grace tell me about their day. It's great fun to sit down and see how long you can keep Emily talking. She always seems amazed that I speak fluent baby and when she smiles she uses her whole body. There's nothing better.
