Dear Emmerson--SIX MONTHS!!

Dear Emmerson,

My darling girl, happy half birthday!! How has it been half a year since we first saw your precious face? It has happened in a flash, and yet we can hardly remember life before you.

Everyday, your sweet personality shines through more and more. You are our silly goose, and you love to laugh, smile, talk and sing. You've been a busy bee and have had quite an active month! Here's what you've been up to in months 5-6.

 You're weighing in at 12 lbs, 12 oz, and are 24 1/4 inches. long. The doctor is happy because you are perfect, and also happen to be perfectly petite. You're meeting all of your developmental milestones and are definitely a growing girl!

 You're in size 1 diapers still, and are rocking 0-3 month clothes, though they're getting a little small, finally! You also wear 3-6 month things, we just roll up the sleeves or pant legs as needed. :)
 This month we began oatmeal, and you love it! You have no trouble finishing your bowl each day.
 You are on the move! You love rolling all around, and that's your preferred method of getting from one place to another. You're also practicing your sitting skills, and are doing great! You can sit independently for a few seconds and love pulling up to stand. Maybe you'll skip crawling and go straight to walking?

 You love being worn in the carrier, your Daddy's jokes, being silly, playing peek-a-boo, Itsy Bitsy, being held, playing on your foam mat, rolling everywhere, grabbing anything and then throwing it, putting things in your mouth, taking things from Mommy and Daddy, bath time, playing music in your exersaucer and kick n' play piano, reading books, swinging going for walks in the park, smiling at everyone, playing with other babies, and watching/playing with Bailey and Sadie.

You don't love when Mommy and Daddy leave the room or napping for long stretches. :)

We lovingly call you Emme, Emme Kate, Squish, Silly Goose, DJ E (when you play us songs).

 I love our days together! I do not take one second for granted, and realize how amazing it is that I get to stay home with you. It's truly my dream! Our days usually start slow with coffee (always coffee) and we plan an outing or two depending on the weather. We head to Trader Joes or Whole Foods about every other day, walk in the park, go to yoga or have a play date with our friends. We play and read and you help me with things around the house. Note, I don't usually get much 'done' but that's just part of it! I don't worry too much about it and whatever 'it' is, will get done eventually. You keep mama busy!
 This month we celebrated your first St.Patrick's Day, a trip to Vermont, Daddy's birthday and Daddy ran his second half marathon. I take pictures of you all day long. I just don't want to miss a moment!

Here are a bunch of snapshots of our month:

You're a very happy baby, and we are happier than we ever thought possible. You have us wrapped around your chubby little fingers and you make life so much fun. We love you, we love you, we love you so, dear baby!

Love You,
