This year, we spent Christmas at our house with just the 4 of us. It was so much fun spending the time together and doing all the fun things on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day that we used to do with our parents. We even started some traditions of our own. Emma and I baked cookies for Santa and decorated them. She got a special plate from Honey that has a spot to leave a note for Santa right on the cookie plate! Thanks, Honey. Then, all of us went to a movie together. We watched Alvin and the Chipmunks. Finally, we made it home to open presents. Emma had fun and Hannah wasn't quite sure what to think about all of it. Then, we read the Polar Express, I Love You Forever, and the First Christmas. We did lots of talking to Emma on the real meaning of Christmas. It was off to bed after that! The next morning, Santa left LOTS of presents for the girls and they had a blast opening them and playing all day. We had a wonderful time together and can't wait to continue our "Williamson Family Traditions" next year.

9 Months

On December 21st, Hannah had her 9 month check up. I was busy with work trying to get all the stores instock for the holidays, so Travis took her to see Dr. Lovell. She did great is and progressing well. However, Travis was upset, because she had to get her follow-up flu shot!
:( No fun!

Hannah is 9 months old, weighs 18lbs 10 ozs, and is 29 3/4 inches longs. She is taller than 50% of 14 month old girls! She is pulling up and trying to walk around things. She is still not crawling and Dr. Lovell said she may skip that altogether. Hannah is talking alot and starting to make more words. She is saying Bye Bye, Hi, Ni Ni (night night), Ma ma, Daddy (no more da da), Ba ba (for bottle) and working on Go, but it comes out more like Doe! Hannah can cover her face and play peek a boo. She LOVES to chase Emma around the couch and play their version of Hide 'n Seek. She is eating 8 ozs every 4 hours, baby food at every meal. We are working on table food, but since she has had so many stomach problems, I am super cautious! She is still sleeping well. Overall, Dr. Lovell said her cognative skills are very advanced and her motor skills are right on track.

Dress Up and Pajama Day

The pretty princess
Hannah...the rapper!?
Pajama Day!!!

The week before Christmas, Emma's preschool had lots of fun activities. We were very busy that week as well. One night at home, Emma played dress up. While I was helping her get dressed, Travis decided that he and Hannah would get in on the fun as well. That next day was pajama day. All the kids dressed in their PJs and brought their sleeping bags. They played slumber party games, watched movies and had their Christmas party. Emma had so much fun! I thought I would share a few pictures from those two days with everyone. ENJOY!

Come on, girls. Pay attention!

We have been so busy this year that I have not had a chance to send out Christmas cards. And, since it is just 6 days before Christmas, I think we are going to just skip it this year. But, I do want to share these pictures of the girls in front of the tree. Everyone have a Merry Christmas and safe travels!

Coleman's Christmas Program

Last week, Emma had a Christmas Program at her school. She did so well! Of course, being her mother's child, she sang LOUD and PROUD! She even had a small part with a few other kids during Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer. She was so cute and excited that Mommy, Daddy, and Hannah were there.

Pulling up

A few weekends ago, Hannah was down for a nap and I was cleaning the kitchen. I heard her back in her room playing around, so I finished what I was doing before going to get her. When I got back there, much to my surprise, she was standing up in her crib! I ran out, hoping she would stay that way, and grabbed my camera! I was so excited. She is getting sooooo big!

She's a Star!


Last Tuesday, Emma was in a commercial! She was asked with two other kids from her daycare to be in a regional commercial to promote the preschool. She came home and was super excited. All she talked about what wearing her red shirt and sparkly red shoes. So, that's what she wore. I haven't seen the commercial yet, but I heard she did wonderful. Emma keeps saying "I am a movie star, Mommy!" Hopefully, we will get a copy soon to share with the family. We are so proud of her!

Happy Thanksgiving

Over Thanksgiving, we went to Hot Springs to spend time with Honey and Daddy Brooks. We had so much fun spending time with everyone. GrandDa, Daddy Ben, Uncle Jon and Nicole all came to Honey's for dinner and fun. Daddy Brooks and Emma went to the Mid-America Museum. We got a little worried about them when they were gone for almost 4 hours, but apparently Emma had so much fun that they "stayed until even the workers were gone". Emma and Honey made cookies while Hannah had lots of fun playing with Uncle Jon and Nicole. Overall, we had a great Thanksgiving and can't wait to see everyone at Christmas!

She speaks!

Last Tuesday, Hannah and I had the house to ourselves. Emma was in Hot Springs with Honey and Travis was hunting. After I picked her up from daycare, I had to run back up to work to pick up my laptop. We came in and visited. Cassidie was holding her while I ran into my office to grab my computer and I said "Bye Bye, Hannah". She responded "Bye bye!" with a half wave. I was SHOCKED! She did it a couple of other times that night and even did it for Daddy Brooks when we were leaving Hot Springs after Thanksgiving! I was so excited! This week, she has started calling me Mama! I was thrilled since I got to be called before Dada!!! We are so proud of how big she is getting. She can talk, but still no crawling! But, being my child, I would expect nothing less!

" hat is TOO BIG!"

This weekend, Travis went hunting. So, it was just the girls and I. We had lots of fun together. We played outside, watched movies and played together. Emma said we had a "Girls Only Slumber Party". It was nice to spend time with just the girls, but we sure missed Travis.

Hannah and Daddy after a long night of Trick or Treating!

At daycare, Emma had a Halloween Party. They played lots of "scary" games and got treat bags. Both girls wore their super cute Halloween outfits!

For Halloween, both of the girls dressed up like bumble bees. We had a great time taking them trick or treating. Hannah got a little sleepy at the end of it all, but was a very good girl. Emma loved it and asked if she could go trick or treating again tonight! :)

Always happy after filling her tummy!
So sweet!

This weekend, we spent lots of time at home. It was a beautiful weekend, so we played outside with the girls. Travis finished up some things around the house in preparation for hunting season. I thought these pictures of the girls were cute. This is what we do on a relaxing weekend at home! :)

Emma and Hannah's check - up

Emma: 3 1/2
Hannah (dirty face): 6 months

Emma can write her name

Last week, Travis and I took the girls for a check up and for shots (Yuck). Everything went great.

Emma is 3 1/2 years old, 38 inches tall and weighs 32 lbs. She is talking, writing and drawing at a kindergarten level. Emma can write her name and recognize most letters of the alphabet.She is on a 4 year old level with motor skills...who would have thought she gets her coordination from her mother! She can almost dress herself, but has a VERY hard time jumping on one foot.

Hannah is 6 months old, 28 1/2 inches tall and weighs 18 lbs. She is sitting up on her own and holding her own bottle. She can roll over from front to back and turn in circles on her belly to face the direction she wants to go. She is also inching along like a little worm. She has two bottom teeth and is working on the two top ones to match! She is eating all vegetables and fruits great. She has cereal for breakfast, a veggie for lunch, and a veggie and fruit for dinner. She is still taking 6 oz every four hours in her bottle. She sleeps from 7pm to 7am every night.

Overall, both girls are developmentally advanced. They are also happy and healthy. Travis and I couldn't be more blessed!

Chubby Hannah and Nicole we go again. It's been a while since I posted anything, but I have lots of good pics to share. At the end of August, the girls and I went to Hot Springs to visit Honey and Daddy Brooks. We had lots of lake fun and spent time with Uncle Jon and Nicole.
