This sweet girl had her 1 year check-up today and did fabulous! Here are some stats about our girl:
•23 lbs 12 oz (88%)
•31" tall (96%)
•8 teeth (with 2 more coming in)
•Sleeps through the night
•Started walking last week
•Says "What is that?", "uh oh", "hi", "momma","dadda", and "ow"
•Waving is her favorite 🏼🏼🏼
•Loves meeting new people and making new friends #EmersynisOne
I can't even BELIEVE that our little girl is going to be ONE on Tuesday (or should I say, I can't believe I've kept another human being alive for a year! ). It seems like just yesterday I was in the hospital giving birth to her but at the same time I cannot imagine my life without her!
Emersyn, you are the best thing that has ever happened to me (after @dmartin022789) and I love you with all my !#EmersynisOne

Happiest of birthdays to the beauty in the middle! God sure knew what he was doing when he paired an extrovert like you with an introvert like me! I'm so thankful and blessed to call you one of my very best friends and am grateful for the seeds of grace and wisdom you have planted in my life over the last 7 years! You are going to be an amazing mom come December and I can't wait for Mila and Shay to be besties!!
P.S. Have I mentioned how much more fun it is to be pregnant with friends?! Because it totally is.

Of all the rooms in our home, this one I've disliked most. For obvious reasons, it was outdated and just totally dysfunctional (try giving an infant or toddler a bath in a tub that has a screen door on it...). Regardless, it was usable and with the long list of other home projects, this bathroom was low on the priority list--I mean so low I didn't even think we would have it done by the time we sold this home (we aren't moving but you never know!). So it came as a total shock and surprise when David said he wanted to get the ball rolling and finish the bathroom. Have I mentioned I've been in total nesting mode this pregnancy?? All I can think about is that with David in Grad school while working full-time and me taking care of two babes under 2 projects just aren't going to happen.
LONG STORY LONG, God gives good gifts and I mean like amazing. He gave me a hubby who doesn't care at all about this kind of stuff yet has worked relentlessly to turn our house into a beautiful home because he knows how much it means to me. Thank you @dmartin022789 for showing me Christ's love.

My sweetest girl turned 11 months yesterday and this mama is already feeling sentimental trying to hold on to each and every moment before her first birthday next month. She took her first few steps on her own yesterday and in the last week has started going down for naps and bedtime without being rocked to sleep. When did she become Miss. Independent? I have loved seeing more and more of her sweet and fun personality come to life but seriously, it's time for her to stop growing!
Always have a little mom-guilt when I do things for myself but it's so good to feel like a million bucks every now and again! 🏼
My #shiplap wall is complete all thanks to my wonderful hubby @dmartin022789 who makes my Pinterest dreams a reality! On to the next project...
Our family is humbled and overjoyed to announce that Emersyn is going to be a big sister! Baby Martin #2 is due December 2017! God be the glory! #14weeks : @lisamarshallphotography

This little girl turned 10 months old last week while we were in the keys! In the past month she has started cruising around all objects, has figured out how to open the cabinets and pull down everything in sight (baby proofing in full effect now), had her first sleepover(s) with her grandparents, and now points to things she wants to look at or touch! She's changing so much these days it's hard to keep track of it all but she sure keeps us on our toes!
Happy Birthday to this gorgeous bestie of mine!! Thank you for being such a loyal, sweet, and fun friend! I love that I can just be super myself around you and that you get my strange humor (or at least pretend you do). I'm sad that we don't see each other as often anymore but we'll always be #twinningforthewinning and I can't wait to celebrate you real soon!

Happy Father's Day to my better half and best friend! This past year I've seen you take on this new role as a dad with fervor and it's so evident how much Emersyn adores you and lights up when she is around you. Thank you for being our rock. We are so blessed to call you ours.

Left our sweet daughter Emersyn for the first time this weekend and although I'm missing her like crazy, I must say, getaways with my hubby are good for the soul.
