Somehow, someway…Emmy is already over five months old. It is mind blowing how fast the time has gone by since she was born. I knew I would get behind with posting these monthly updates, but didn’t think it would happen quite so soon! Anyway, it has been a very busy past two months and here’s a snapshot of all that happened in Emmy’s world!
Miss Emmy Mae became a pro at the “almost” roll over at four months old. She would get her entire body turned over, but her (large) head would just stay put! It’s hard being in the 86th percentile of head size. We loved watching her learn and grow this month. I missed her four month well-baby visit, but her daddy and GiGi went for me. I hated missing out, but we are only given 3 sick days and 3 “discretionary” days to be used during the clinical year (which ends in December) and so I couldn’t take off for the visit. She was a super star, though, of course! Emmy Mae got to meet her great Uncle Gary this month. I was so excited she got to meet him. He is such a special person in my life though we hardly get to see him or my aunt Penny and cousin Christina and her little family since they live in Alabama. Regardless, Emmy enjoyed meeting Uncle Gary and listening to his crazy stories. :)
The biggest news in the fourth month of Emmy’s life is that her mommy finished her Orthopaedics rotation! Praise the Lord! DONE with Ortho! Emmy told me she is super happy that I don’t have to get so stressed out over Ortho anymore. Woo hoo! Five rotations down, seven left to go!
EM @ Four Months
Weight: 17lbs, 2.5oz (93%)
Firsts: We had our first family photo shoot and Emmy’s first professional photography session. She was such a little trooper! And the pics were wonderful. Melissa DeLorme Photography in Raleigh, for anyone interested in a great photog! :) Emmy also met a lot of fancy people at the Campbell University Scholarship luncheon. I was blessed to receive two scholarships this year, and Emmy got to meet my scholarship donors! Very exciting day for us.
Sizes: Wearing size 9-12 months. Diaper – size 4
Likes: She is getting so good at tummy time and now holds her head up for several minutes without any problems. She loves being “scared” by surprise faces or funny noises. She makes these huge eyes and then lets out a great little laugh. We bought a “jumparoo” jumpy seat and she LOVESSSSS it. She has the best time just bouncing in her seat!
Dislikes: Emmy outgrew her mamaroo and the snuggle bunny swing she has at GiGi’s. She is starting to have a little separation anxiety and gets whiny when Dustin or I walk away for a minute or two.
