Gemma, so far.

So I had just resumed blogging when the holidays hit and suddenly I had tons of pictures and too many things to blog about. Instead of getting overwhelmed, I just decided to bag it and not blog about anything. :) Gemma will be 6 months in a couple of weeks, though, so I figured I should give an update on her, since she is the primary reason I started blogging again. She is, for the most part, a good baby--very mild mannered. She has, however, become a horrible sleeper (on and off). We've been attempting to sleep train her for about 2 months. Ha! It's more like she's training us. We've tried just about everything, and some nights she is great, and others, not so much. We've got a system down that we're sticking too, and it seems like she's becoming a little more consistent with it, but she likes to mix it up every now and then just to keep us on our toes.

Here are some highlights from the last few months.

Gemma's blessing

Tummy time--which has led to rolling on her back.

Bath Time--every kid needs one of these pictures.

She was not amused at having her picture taken after a long day at church.

She found her feet, which eventually found their way to her mouth.

And I had to post a picture of her wearing my old, blue dress from when I was a baby.
And she loves, Loves, LOVES her sister.
I just have to say that Lily is such a good big sister. She helps me out all throughout the day with Gemma and is very attentive and loving (although she does occasionally do stuff like poke her in the eye for no apparent reason). Anyway, even with the horrendous nights of sleep (no sleep, that is), Gemma manages to worm her way back into our good graces. Seriously, how can you stay mad at that?

She is adorable! Thanks for the update to us people not frequently on FB:). Although, I did see on your updates something about a new Jane Eyre? I'll have to go back and watch the trailor. I just watched the first half of the BBC version last week and need to watch the rest this week.

Cute pixs! Glad to see you're occasionally blogging again. It's the only way I know what's going on with you guys.

I LOVE your pink flower chair. I worry that I'll never get to have things like that. I'm pretty sure I'm always gonna have a house full of men. Also, your girls are beautiful!
