6 months of Emerson

How can it be that you have been alive for 1/2 of a year already!  You are such an amazing little boy and I cannot wait to see what you're going to be like as you grow.  I am such a blessed mama getting to take care of you every single day for the past 6 months!

You like:
*Screaming - not crying/screaming, but squealing for joy screaming.  You have recently discovered your loud voice and you like to use it!
*Sucking on the satin part of your lovey as you fall asleep. 
* Splashing with your feet in the bath.
*Jumping in your jumperoo.

You dislike:
* Mama feeling in your mouth to check on the progress of your teeth.
* Teething!
* Riding in your carseat on the way home from Sacramento after you've woken up from a nap.
* When mama puts you in your sleep sack and starts getting you ready for bed.
* When mama takes a toy out of your hands.

Our favorite things about you are:
* Your high pitched scream!
* Your constant babbling of "nanananana."
* How happy you are!

Weight: Around 15 1/2 pounds.  You were weighed about a week and a half ago. 

Length: Around 26 inches.  You were measured about a week and a half ago.

Clothing Size: You are wearing 3-6 month and 6 month clothes!  

Diaper Size: Size 2

Feeding:  You still eat every 2.5-3.5 hours now, except at night.  

Sleep: Your night sleep has been better this last month.  Most nights you are sleeping a 6-7 hour stretch, waking up to eat, and then sleeping for a few more hours.  You get up for the day now at 7:30.  Occasionally you wake up in the middle of that to talk or fuss for a little while and then you go back to sleep.  

Milestones:  TEETH!!  Your 2 bottom teeth have started coming in.  One of them is already poking through your gums and the other one is just waiting underneath.  You have also started sitting up on your own.  You are still a little wobbly, but you are getting better and better at it! You've started scooting yourself a little bit.  You can't get very far yet, but you've started. And you mainly scoot backwards.

Adventures:  One of your favorite things to do each week is go to story time at the library.  You are so well behaved and you love watching the older kids sing and dance.  You also love hearing the librarian read stories.  You have also had some adventures in your crib. You are becoming so mobile in your crib, rolling around everywhere and scooting, that you manage to roll and scoot yourself into the corner a lot.  You then proceed to bump your head on the crib.  You have had a few major shiners and goose eggs on your head from your Crib Acrobatics!  You also rode in a shopping cart for the first time this last week!

Mama and Daddy could not get through this month without: Teething toys.  You're 2 bottom teeth are working on coming through.  I can see white shadows under your gums and even feel one of them sharply starting to poke through.  

We love you to the moon and back kid.  We think you're pretty awesome!
