May 16th: Happy 3 Months!

I can't believe that my baby is a quarter of a year old. He is growing so quickly. Sometimes I look over at him and it shocks me how much bigger he is.

Emerson's stats (a rough at home estimate):
Height: 24 inches (50%)
Weight: 13.5 lbs (just above 50%)
Things about Emerson:
  • He loves sucking on his hands.
  • Swaddling calms him down but then he gets out of it so he can suck on his hand.
  • He still nurses a lot, but he takes bottles with breast milk. This way Daddy can feed sometimes :)
  • He loves to smile.
  • He loves to be apart of the crowd, so he loves sitting in his Bumbo.
  • He loves to move...so thank goodness for the weing and vibrating chair.
  • He makes such sweet cooing sounds.
  • He just got moved into his crib!
  • He sleeps most nights all the way through. Sometimes he has a feeding, but I think that he likes his sleep more than eating...he is mommy's boy!
  • He grabs things. I made him a little blanket (pictures to come), so he would stop grabbing and sucking on his burp clothes.
  • He has a HUGE HUGE HUGE belly. (As you can kind of see in the picture above.)
  • He wears 0-3 month clothes (except for gerber onesie's which he wears 3-6)
  • He is in size 1 diapers.
  • He is the BEST baby boy for our family to have right now.
  • He is so loved by is parents!!!!

We were sitting on the ground playing a game tonight, so we put Emerson in his Bumbo. Then he started to fall asleep, but it looked uncomfortable, so he put the little pillow there. So this is how he fell asleep this night. We think that it is so cute that he uses the sides as little arm rests.
