Life with Ella and Emerson

This is a blog dedicated to my beautiful daughters, Ella and Emerson. Emerson was diagnosed with a rare, genetic disorder called Williams Syndrome when she was 5 months old.

Just Because...

I thought I would post a video of Emerson. She is just so lovable and I hope this captures her beautiful, sweet nature. I haven't posted a ton lately on Emerson and what she has been up to because, frankly, we have been at a bit of a standstill. She is expanding upon her single word vocabulary, but not combining a ton of words. This is how it goes with her. Huge bursts of development and then not much. This child is increasing our patience ten-fold. We continue to work hard and hope that it comes. But, we love her and will just wait.



Did you notice in the video that I asked her to not eat the crayon. She eats crayons, candles, you name it. Everything, but food really. The other day I saw her chewing and asked innocently, "Whatcha eating?" Her response, "bugs". I held out my hand and out came a very unhappy ladybug.

Very cute. She has grown up so much recently.
Abi doesn't eat bus but she sure does like them too. In fact she kisses most of them-yuck!

she is too cute for words. Caleb has eaten his share of lady bugs too. I guess maybe they look yummy to a 3 year old? Love her curls!!!

She is adorable. She sounds like her receptive is a little better than Noah's and they are about the same age. I wouldn't stress to much. I know easier said than done. Noah eat cat food all the time.:)

Adorable. She looks so much like Michaela did at that age. She loved to eat crayons too! I had to stop going to the gym the day she became mobile in the babysitting room, there were always crayons on the floor and she found every single one!

Avery puts so many things in her mouth, you name it she tastes it. Em is doing so great with her language! I am sure it helps her mom is a ST(:

She is just beautiful! I don't think I will ever get over the shock of watching a virtual stranger who could be my daughter's twin. Emerson is just like Clare! I cannot believe she is almost three - I know Emerson will LOVE school, just like Clare does!
