Emily Ann, you are such a blessing to me and your Daddy. You are so sweet and happy- we are so lucky to be your parents. Each day I can't wait to spend time with you, watch you grow, and watch you interact more with us. From your sweet smile when I wake you up to your heavy eyes when we lay you down at night, I could never imagine a more precious little girl. We love you so so much.
Firsts: overnight trip, Thanksgiving, meeting Santa, first trip to Bass Pro, first Iron Bowl, first Black Friday shopping
Milestones: Growing like a weed, rolling onto your side
Measurements: A little over 13 pounds, about 23 inches, 3-6 month clothes, size 1 Pampers diapers.
Like Mommy: You love bath time.
Like Daddy: A definite morning person
Food: You are eating every 3 hours and eat between 5 oz. and 7 oz. every other meal. You are beginning to fight with your bottle a little more, so it makes the feedings last longer, but overall you are a fabulous eater!
Sleep: You sleep from 9:00 pm to 8:00 am every night. During the day you sleep for about an hour between every feeding. I usually lay you down for a longer nap between your 2 and 5 o'clock feedings.
Challenges: Recently, you have started fighting with your bottle at the end of each feeding. You have also started to get fussy as it gets later in the day. But honestly, you are a great baby- you are very chill and just love to be around people!
Our Days: I wake you up at about 8:00 each morning. After eating, we play for a little while before you fall asleep again. You eat again at 11:00 and 2:00. We usually go out around those two feedings. You lay down for a nap after your 2:00 feeding and sleep for about an hour and a half to two hours. When you wake up, you spend time with Daddy, eat again, take a bath, then go to bed.
Mommy's Favorite: Watching you lay on Mommy and Daddy's bed and talk.
Daddy's Favorite: Watching you smile at him.
