The months are really flying by...I write this as Emerson is actually
Milestones this month:
- First Halloween: This isn't really a big deal to me, we hadn't actually even planned on dressing the girls up until about 2 days before when we heard a friend was having a block party. Thanks to my MIL giving us matching PJ's I whipped together some cat costumes (i.e. eye-liner as whiskers and DIY felt ears and we're done!!). We went to a block party then took Kinley (along with about 15 other kids) around the block to trick or treat. Emerson hung out in the baby carrier and was wonderful!
- Lots and LOTS of smiling =): We definitely turned the corner from serious, fussy, pensive baby to easy-going, smiley, happy baby! Emerson is basically looking for an excuse to smile at this point. I love her toothless grin!
- Holds head up well
- Curious - looking around
- Drooly baby!
- Easy to read cries. I never once felt like I could decipher Kinley's cries at this age, but Emerson seems a tad easier to read (or maybe I'm learning a thing or two as a mom?!). Emerson has a distinct cry for needing time to have some freedom and lay by herself, time to cuddle/sleep, time to eat, and for when she's just plain bored. I am loving that I can help her out a little more by knowing what she needs!
- First Baylor Homecoming - We took the girls up to Waco on a last minute whim (literally decided mid-day Thursday and drove to Waco that night!). Mom and I took the girls to the ChiO breakfast, to the Homecoming Parade and actually took them to the game as well! Emerson handled it like a champ!!
|This was at the game...with cheering fans all around. It didn't phase her a bit!|
