Tummy time anyone?

I would like some tummy my bed with my eyes closed! The doctor asked if Emily had started having her "tummy time" and recommended spending some time each day on her belly to strengthen her neck, etc. I'm not sure how she is going to do it with big sister around... JK she is doing great with her tummy time. She actually feel asleep today on her tummy while I wasn't looking- she'll do that! She falls asleep in seconds flat when you don't want her to! :) Oh I love her sleepy self so much!
She has started smiling at me this week...although this picture didn't capture it. She weighed 10 lbs 7 ounces at her 1 month appointment- which puts her in the 90% for weight (following in big sisters footsteps!) and she was only in 50% for her head and height. She was just perfect and is growing like crazy- she is officially out of her newborn sleepers and has graduated to her 0-3 month stash. Caroline has started calling her name- it doesn't sound anything like Emily, but she says "Enya" over and over for her. She is so aware of her little sister that every time I ask her if she wants to go outside, on the back porch, or anywhere she always looks at me with wonder and checks to make sure Emily is with us. She is so loving to Emily that it melts my heart every time I see her hug, kiss, or hold her little sister. These are the moments that only a mommy can treasure in her mind...I wish that when they were older I could share this special time with them (especially when they are fighting over clothes or something like that! ). I guess the videos will have to suffice. :)

Ballerina girl and her can of Hormel chili.
This video is pretty silly...but Caroline was cracking up at me during dinner. Please disregard how rough and silly I look- I'll do anything to get that giggle going though!
