Two steps forward, one step back

After the bliss of Emerson sleeping through the night for the first time on Monday night, last night was not good. She woke up several times and basically did not go back to sleep after 4:30 this morning. I don't know why I am surprised. With every major skill that Emy has learned so far, she does it a few times and then "forgets" for a couple days or weeks before deciding to do it again. This was the case with smiling, talking, using her hands and rolling (we are still waiting on her to "remember" how to do this one).

One good thing about last night was that she actually played in the bathtub for the first time. Before last night she would basically just sit there and chew her hands while we washed her. Last night Steve was holding a bath toy above her head and she started kicking excitedly and reaching for it with both hands. When she finally got the toy, it of course, went directly into her mouth. Then Steve would hold up a different toy and she would drop the first one and get all excited about the new one. It was absolutely precious.
