I spent most of my holiday at home, until Darrick and I went to my parents house! We ran a couple of errands and left the little munchkin with the grandparents. Our holiday was very laid back…which I enjoyed! I didn’t want to be running all around then have to come into work the next day. We drove to Akron to see the fireworks but it ended up raining so no fireworks for my munchkin on her first 4th of July!
I found her an Independence Day outfit at Kohl’s the day before so it was actually on clearance! Score for Mommy!!! It says “Mommy’s Little Sparkler”…its romper! I personally love the rompers, they are cute and easy for her and for myself when it comes to changing diapers and stuff!!!
At Emma’s last appointment she was 13 lbs and 1.9 oz. That was as of June 22, 2012…I’m sure she weighs more now.
We are in a solid 6 months for clothes now. She can still fit some of her 3 month old onesies but we use those to sleep in:) If the clothes are on the bigger side like a 6/9 month outfit, they are usually too big. She is pretty short so with her summer clothes some of the shorts are 3 months because she is short.
We are in a size 2 comfortably!
My little munchkin’s appetite has picked up. We are eating about 6 1/2 ounces every 2 1/2-3 hours. I usually put cereal in her first bottle in the morning and the last bottle before bedtime. She is getting 1 1/2-2 teaspoons of cereal in those two bottles. If I notice she is having a super hungry day I will usually put a 1/2 teaspoon in one of the mid-day feedings.
We have also introduced solid foods. The first week I started with carrots, then bananas, then bananas and cereal in a bowl together…the next food is sweet potatoes. She is doing extremely well with them considering the cleft.
Emma is completely on her own schedule when it comes to naps! Some days she can sleep for a couple of hours, then other days she is the “cat-nap” queen!!! Most days she is the “cat-nap” queen…then every now and then you will get her to nap for 45-2 hours! Its completely up to Emma and how she feels! LOL!
Emma is usually sleep between 8:30-9:15! I usually start prepping that last bottle by 8:00-8:15, I warm it and put cereal in it…and after that bottle she is usually OUT! That is when Mommy can really get things done that she needs to! HA!! If she is up any later than about 9:30-9:45 she is usually very whiny and crying! Likes:
Emma likes the music and watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse!
She is also a Daddy’s girl…if he is in the room she is sitting there looking at him!
She thinks because she has tasted a few Popsicles if you are eating one then she should be too! LOL!
She likes watching the ceiling fans, playing with her different toys, and eating her fingers!
She loves to talk! Can we say motor mouth…LOL…but I love to hear her talk!
Watching her cousin Solana (who is 5) put on a show for her (singing, dancing, and talking to her) she follows her around the room.
Sitting in a car that is not moving…if she is in the car you better keep moving!
She only likes Tummy time for a few minutes…and I mean a few minutes then its like get me OFF my stomach!!!
She wont poop if her diaper is already wet, she will wait until you change her then poops!
She doesnt like her face wiped in the morning, but she is usually super crusty so I do it anyways!
She expects us to have a bottle waiting for her if she wakes up in the middle of the night…she usually screams until its ready!
She is now full on laughing out
She has more hand and eye coordination
Reaching and Grabbing everything (and puts it in her mouth)
Scooting a little bit when you put her on her stomach
Shows signs that she wants to hold her bottle (but when you let it go she does too) LOL!
She was beat when we got home…
this is her on the bed while I was changing her into her pj’s!!
