4 Months of Emmy

We put together a video of our first four months with Emmy. Its really amazing to see how quickly she is changing. She is literally becoming more beautiful by the day. The video also served as a reminder of just how clueless we were those difficult first months. I didn’t even know to hold a newborn -- I still don’t know if I do.

The song in the video was very prominent during Ashlee’s pregnancy. Its a well known hymn, “Come Thou Fount”, but we were actually introduced to it through the TV show Friday Night Lights. We fell in love with the song immediately and it ended up following us all throughout Ashlee’s pregnancy. We would hear it everywhere in different forms and it seemed like a really fitting song to serve as a soundtrack for our baby girl.
