Happy Monthday....

Happy SIX MONTH Birthday, Emersyn!!


What have you been up to lately...

Well, it may come as no surprise, but you are a doll! You are becoming quite the cuddler and will just rest your head on our shoulders and let us pat your back. You do this a lot at night now right after you finish nursing and just snuggle. I LOVE it!

You have found your voice and are constantly babbling and talking. Your laugh is infectious and anytime Radley is around you laugh out loud. We can all make you smile, but your eyes just LIGHT UP when you see him. He is so caring and loving towards you and I hope that you keep the connection you have with each other. It is just priceless.

He wants to be where ever you are and if you could, you would follow him around. He also wanted to take a pic with his FAO Bear and your FAO Elephant! :)

You are finished with your size 1-2 diapers and since we have so many size 2s on hand you are now wearing those! You can still wear size 3-6 month clothes. We haven't scheduled your 6 month well check (promise to do that soon) so I'm not sure of your official stats but I would estimate that you weigh about 14 pounds and have grown another half inch or so.

Height: 25 3/4 inches = 50th percentile
Weight: 15 lbs (exactly) = 25th percentile
Head: 43 cm = 75th percentile

Dr. Henderson says that you are right on track and couldn't be any healthier! :)

You are loving food. I think your favorite is bananas and sweet potatoes. You make some funny faces on the first few bites but then you want us to feed you fast! Sometimes we can't give it to you quick enough and then other times you are content just eating like a dainty little girl.

You still LOVE love LOVE your feet! And you NEVER sit still. If you are on your back then you roll to your belly. If you are on your belly you roll to your back. We always wonder how we will find you in the morning... sometimes it's backwards to how you started the night before!

(love your Daddy's hand in this one)

You can sit up now! We are so proud of our "big girl"! I love this phase of exploration. You can be surrounded by pillows and toys and be happy. Your favorite toys right now are your crunchy lion and crinkly elephant. You can chew on them forever it seems.

Your first month at school has been an easy transition. At first you didn't like taking naps but I think that's because it was such a new environment. We adjusted your bedtime to meet your sleeping needs and you are doing just fine. Radley says he checks in on you each day, so I'm glad you have someone looking out for you.

I think that nighttime is my favorite time with you still. You are always happy in the morning but you are just so sweet and cuddly at night. I could rock you for hours. I miss rocking Radley to sleep so I hope you let me cuddle you as long as he did.


We LOVE you!
