Happy 11 mos

~Emersyn Kate~

Happy 11 months!  What a fun, sweet baby you are!  You are Ms. Serious for the most part, but break out a lot of smiles,  but you always look like you're thinking and processing things.
You finally have 2 bottom teeth that have just started to pop through.   You have been sleeping great these past few weeks, well, except for naps.   You are full of fun - you give big sloppy kisses, head hugs, you can wave, make a smushy face, cruising around the furniture, and started crawling up the stairs.
You still have red hair that gets us stopped on a daily basis and pretty blue eyes.  I think you're still average weight and a little bit long.  You are still good at going with the flow.  You like being outside and going on walks.  I'm not sure why you are pinching yourself in this picture.
Ms. Serious.  You have a tiny little bruise on your left cheek- we're not sure how you got it.
Wish I would have fixed your hand and your leg in this picture

You pull yourself up on everything and cruise around everything - and this little mischievous face gets us every time.  You and Beckett have a cute little bond and you like it when Hudson carries you around.
You are smart!  You were teasing me during pictures.  I was trying to get you to sit still, but you kept crawling in and out of the room taunting me.  
Happy 11 months our sweet little baby!  We love and adore you so much!  We're so thankful for you and thankful for what a sweet little blessing you are.

We love you!
Mommy & Daddy

Happy 10 months!

~Emersyn Kate~

Happy 10 months!  What?!  How can that be (I know I say that every month)?  We had a great last month, minus your colds - pretty much cold after cold after cold.  
You have learned to pull yourself up and just started to cruise around.  You were just army crawling everywhere, and just in the past 2 days have started actually crawling.   You have been fussier this month because you know what you want to do, but can't, yet.  You also prefer to be held, a lot, so if you don't get your way and get held, you tend to cry.

Your eyes are more of a navy blue now and your hair is still red and getting a little longer.  
You're still not a very good sleeper napper - 2 per day about 20-30 minutes each.  We think we've figured out your nighttime routine, though.  You tend to wake up a lot and cry out, so we always came in and patted you back to sleep.  We've been letting you cry it out and you have been going back to sleep on your own- you still wake up a lot, but you can put yourself back to sleep.  You've started turning over on your belly and sleeping and you seem more content.

We went to Disney this past month and you did great and had a blast!   You did great on both plane rides.  You loved Disney!  You slept maybe 10 minutes the first day we were there because you loved looking at everything and everyone.  You LOVE people watching!

You started waving this past month and giving big sloppy kisses, it's pretty sweet.
You love food, but don't really like baby food and spit most of it out.  I've mashed up avocado and tried feeding it to you, and you spit it out, but if I cut little pieces and let you feed yourself, you'll eat it and you love it.  You're very independent with food and want to try everything and feed yourself, too bad you still don't have any teeth, so you can't have too much, yet.  You take 4 bottles a day.  I officially stopped pumping this past month.
You love being outside and going on walks.  You love your little walker and cruise all over the house and will knock over anything in your way.  Pictures were hard this month, you weren't interested at all.  You wouldn't keep your bow on and you wouldn't sit still.
We love you sweet girl!   We pray big things for you!
Love, Mommy & Daddy
