Emerick has never been a snuggly baby, so the rare moments when he stays snuggled on the couch with us for more than 5 seconds is a big deal. He is usually up faster than I can grab the camera, but not today. He stayed snuggled on the couch with Daddy for a good 5 minutes.

Today Emerick got his very own lollipop. He was in heaven as he sat on the back steps and wiggled and danced, and repeated "mmm...mmmmm" over and over again.

If you are wondering why he is wearing a rainbow sweater, you may remember THIS POST. The sweater was worn by myself and many of my cousins.

I photographed twin girls yesterday, and I really feel like I want a daughter now :-/


On another note, I think we have decided to go ahead and trim emerick's bangs. Eeek!

to trim or not to trim?

emerick has bangs. long bangs that cover his beautiful eyes. i am constantly pushing them out of his face, even though he does not seem to mind them being there. we don't want to cut his hair, we want to let it grow for a while and see how it looks. i just can't decide if i should trim the bangs a bit, or suffer through this awkward bang stage!!!

please chime in, i would love to hear your thoughts. if you don't know how to comment, just click where it says comments underneath this post, you do not have to be a member of blogger.

one and a quarter

Emerick turned 15 months old on Saturday, and yesterday was his 15 month Dr. checkup.

His stats:
weight: 28.6lbs (90%)
height: 32in (75%)
head: 49cm (90%)

He is walking like a pro now and trying to run, which makes for lots of noggin bonks and falls. He can identify his nose, ears, belly, and sometimes tongue.

Some of Emerick's words:
mama (he usually calls me MOM!)
bath (baaaa)
what's that?
bottle (baba)
papa (for my dad)
bye bye

his favorite saying that he repeats constantly is "ooooohh wowwww!" He can also count to three (minus the one!) If someone says ONE.... he will say "twoooo...trheerrreee" :-)

He is wild and crazy (& sweet)

and he is not too sure about the snow
