We had a fun and busy week. On Saturday we got an early and unexpected snow but what a nice surprise. It was just enough to leave a light coating. It wasn't Emma Claire's first snow as it snowed the day we brought her home from the hospital but it was the first that we have pictures of. Emma Claire also got to meet Stevie, a childhood friend of Kyle's from Ohio. He was in town so we had dinner and made a trip to the mall with him. Stevie is great with kids and Emma Claire had a lot of fun hanging out with him. On Sunday, we had my Bible Study Christmas Party. Emma Claire was getting tired so I took her upstairs to Kyle where the men were watching football so I could grab some dessert before we took her home for a nap. I never heard a peep out of her and the picture below is her passed out on Daddy's lap. We also broke out her baby doll this week that she got as a baby gift from our friends Jenn, Michael, and Lilley (Baby Tripp has since made his arrival). She is enjoying playing with her baby doll and it's so cute to see her playing with such a feminine toy.
Our most exciting development this week is we learned that when we say "yay" Emma Claire will smile and clap her hands. Here is a video of her performing her new trick. It's just the cutest thing and how exciting to know she understands us.
