Day at the Library!

Hello all!

Things have been super quiet for the four of us and that's just the way we like it! It's been really nice to not have anything pressing to do and to just play each day by ear. One of Ethan's favorite things to do is to go to the library where the "choo-choo" is. Our library is so fantastic and provides such an awesome experience for young kids....even babies Emerson's age! Ethan's favorite part is definitely the train table.

He also loves to play in the kitchen area, with the legos, and with the magnetic alphabet letters he can stick on the wall.

Ethan likes to sit at the computer for a couple minutes and watch an educational video.

There's also a station where you can color with markers and colored pencils.

We are so lucky to have such a great resource here in our community. One of these days, Ethan will actually read books while at the library and not just play with the toys =)

The library has a special area for babies Emerson's age...look how much fun she had!

{Six Months Old - Emerson!}

Hi Family and Friends!

What a milestone - I'm SIX months old! I can barely believe it (and neither can my family)! I've been doing great things since my last update. Here's a peek:
  • Guess what I did last week? Rolled off the couch...oops! Mommy had me sitting up in my boppy pillow on the couch while she went a couple feet away to make Ethan some cereal. Little did she know that I've been lunging forward to grab my toes and I just went right on over...thud! Mommy was there to pick me up in a flash (and it scared her more than it did me).
  • I weigh 14 pounds and am 26" long!

  • Speaking of my toes, they are my new favorite thing! Not only do I love to stare at them and see them wiggle, but I love to suck on them too! They taste so yummy because mommy keeps them clean.

  • My big brother, Ethan, makes me talk/laugh like no one else. He loves to get right up in my face and say "ahhh-oooo" and then I say the same thing back. We are going to be best friends.
  • Ethan loves to help me take baths. He pours water on my feet to keep me warm.

  • I still don't let anyone hold me longer than 15 seconds.
  • I love tags - tags on burp cloths, tags on stuffed animals, etc. They are silky and smooth and I like to put them in my mouth. I actually like to put everything in my mouth.

  • My toes, fingers, and toys taste nice, but know what tastes even better? BABY FOOD!!! I had my first bite of real food and it was delicious. It was sweet potatoes. I've also tried carrots. I get so excited when I see the spoon!
  • Water bottles make a very fun toy.
  • I celebrated Christmas this month. You can read all about it here. I got my picture taken with a strange man who had a fluffy white beard. I did not like him. But for some reason, mommy and daddy were really happy we got this picture:
  • I'm sleeping 11-12 hours at night (9ish-8ish) with a morning nap and afternoon nap.
  • I have big blue eyes.
  • It takes next to nothing to make me smile. All you have to do is look at me and I light up! People say I smile with my whole face!

I know 2015 is going to be a great year for me. I hope you'll continue to check in on our blog so you can see everything my brother and I are up to. Happy New Year!
