Yay! Emma is getting to the age that she's recognizing everybody. She is remembering names and faces and places!

She especially loves her Uncles and Poppa.

She asked the other day to see Uncle O-nan (Owen) so she could tickle him. The way she asked was adorable... "Mommy? See Onan's house? Cookie, cookie?" (as she scrunched her face and imitated tickling with her fingers).

 It will be a sad day when "tickle, tickle" is no longer described as a delicious baked goodie. 

We had a full week of cousin visits this month! A few days before we were to leave for Montana, my sister and her kids came to Utah for the week. Luckily, we were able to see each other for a day before our trips overlapped. They stayed at our place and took care of our crazy cats and watered our plants while we were gone, thank you Jensen family!!

Emma loved playing with Sophia, Sara, and Brandon. She asked what they were doing the entire time we drove to Montana. 

Aunt Shannen and Uncle Ben gave us Sophia's toddler bed for Emma, so far so good! She loves it!

Sophia was holding her smile in, it was the cutest thing ever.

Sara turned 13!! Holy crap! The oldest niece of the family :)

More cousin love! Emma met her second cousins little Eddie and Griffin when we drove to Montana:

We love cousins!!

She's 7 1/2 months! Where did the time go?! 

From this:
(about 1 1/2 months old)

To This:

She is absolutely precious, and I love every minute I get to spend with her! She recently learned a new trick, where she scrunches her face and breathes out of her nose. It is one of the cutest things I've ever seen.

We also put her in a jumper while we were in Montana, and she had a blast in it! Matt said she jumped the poop right out of her! When she was done jumping she had made a nice little present in her pants for him :)

I love re-living the baby stages with her! This time around I feel so proud and excited for each new step she learns, because I remember it with Emma and I know what comes next. It's so fun having little babies around! I figure as cute as my Charlotte is, I can wait a little longer before I get to sleep through a full night again :)
