12 months… one whole year. Wow how I can’t believe it. I seriously can’t believe it. To say to myself that yesterday was her first birthday doesn’t seem possible. I sit here in complete denial, not knowing how it can be that an entire year has passed since she graced us with her presence in this world. This 12 month update will be the last monthly update that I do for her and to say that I am sad is an understatement. Watching the growth she has made over the past 12 months has been an incredible experience.
I am surprised that I am even allowing myself to write this update on her actual 11 month birthday. My usual course of practice would be to avoid it completely in hopes that if I do so she won’t actually turn 11 months and I can therefore hold onto this time a little bit longer… But here I am trying to get my thoughts together while I hold back the tears. I seriously can’t believe she’s going to be one in a month! This past month flew by. I’m having a hard time even recalling what has really occurred as it all feels like a blur.
This past month we took our first plane ride with Miss Lace! She did absolutely incredible. We took the advice of friends and nursed her during take off and this seemed to prove effective. However, while burping her after this nursing session she proceeded to puke her milk up all over mommy. I wasn’t nearly as prepared as I should have been as she hasn’t done this in a very long time. As a new mom, you quickly learn that the smell of fresh milk is quite okay compared to the smell of old milk so I took it with a grain of salt. After I air dried off the rest of the plane ride went seamlessly. She played with toys, enjoyed the multiple television screens, as well as the many interactions with the other people on the plane. The in flight safety demonstration provided her with great entertainment. Continue reading
Life has been hectic this past month as we prepared for a local craft market. It’s no excuse but unfortunately Emsley’s 9 month update got pushed aside in the chaos. So here it is, better late than never! Hopefully she will forgive her momma when she’s older.
Today marks 8 wonderful months of having our sweet Emsley in our lives! I have recently mentioned on Instagram how each milestone or month that passes I find myself saying “this is the best part” only to find myself saying it again as a new milestone or stage emerges. This wonderful, tiny human being has filled my heart with great amounts of joy as she grows and develops into such a fun, silly, and exciting girl. I am so grateful each day of this motherhood journey as it only keeps getting better and better!
Today our girl is 7 months old! It seems as though each month that passes brings the feeling of time moving faster. It feels like yesterday I was writing her half birthday update.
Our little pumpkin is officially half a year old! She currently weighs 14 lbs. 2 oz., however don’t let those delicious leg rolls fool you; she’s still on the tinier side being in the 15th percentile for weight. She is no longer long like her father and instead seems to be following after her mother’s short stature being in the 15th percentile for length as well.
Our little pumpkin turned four months old on the weekend! Wow, how time flies! She currently weighs 11 pounds, 7 ounces and is still a tiny one as she is in the 5th percentile for weight. She is now back to being average for length and that is definitely showing in her onesies!
Our little pumpkin was 2 months old yesterday! Some days it feels like just yesterday that we came home from the hospital whereas other days it feels like we have been doing this for a long time (mostly when we are experiencing the 3am fussiness after feedings!). Yes, that’s right; to all of you that absolutely hated us after reading our 1 month update we have now officially lost a few night’s sleep. But perhaps to your dismay it’s only been a FEW nights. Our babe is still an amazing sleeper overall and on average we are still stretching 6 hours between feedings each night. Typically we feed her around 11 pm and she doesn’t wake up until somewhere between 5-7 am, which makes mommy very happy. It also makes mommy even happier when she falls back asleep for at least another 4 hours! She feeds anywhere between 3 to 5 hours in the day but is still usually more consistent with the 3 hour mark.
