Emerson is 10 months, 2 weeks and Baby Boy is almost 30 weeks

How far along: 29 weeks, 5 days

Size of the baby: 17in., 2.9 lbs (Small Cabbage)

Total weight gain: I don't go to the doctor until next week... we will see

Maternity clothes: Same as last year. 

Stretch marks: None yet

Sleep: Sleeping okay.  Nightly bathroom breaks.  Sore hips, par for the course.

Best moment of this week: We moved into our new house, which is lovely.  A yard for our babies!

Miss anything: The ability to bend over quickly, which is necessary currently.


Movement: Lots of movement


Food cravings: Still having coffee in the mornings, I wanted bugle chips and dip.  I bought caramel apples at the store.

Anything making you queasy or sick: All is well.

Have you started to show yet: I think I look about 9 months right now

Gender: It's a boy!

Labor signs: Nope

Belly button in or out: Its still all the way in.  I'm hoping it stays that way.


Wedding rings on or off: On. 


Happy or moody most of the time: Very very happy. Couldn't ask for a better baby or husband.


Looking forward to: Unpacking, organizing, nesting. Getting ready for the next chapter.

Names: Still thinking about a Jacob Charles (like his dad).  Also my parents are trying to sell Jacob Levi to us.  We kind of like Cy.  I still like Andy.






Notes on Emerson:

Miss Emerson is such a joy to be around.  What a happy baby girl we have.  She is sooooo funny and learns new things every single day.  This weekend she said drink, all done, hair, book, and I'm sure other things that I can't remember.  She hollers for her "Dad dad dad", which is so funny.  Sometimes now, she just feels like kissing us instead of us asking, which is so sweet.  She still hasn't started walking but she's so strong and can stand up without help for long periods of time.
Emerson seems to be doing okay moving to the new house.  She really likes the room we have in the living room now.  There is so much more room to play!  I'm sure she'll enjoy the back yard over the next year too.

I post videos of Emerson on a YouTube channel so I can delete them off my phone and thought I'd leave the link here for family's viewing pleasure.

Week 26


How far along:
26 weeks

Size of the baby: 14.5 in, 2lb - cauliflower

Total weight gain: I am now at 11 lbs total gained.  Not good.

Maternity clothes: Same as last year. 

Stretch marks: None yet

Sleep: Sleeping okay.  An afternoon nap would be helpful.

Best moment of this week: We took Em to the park this weekend and had a nice time at home.  The next few weekends will be packing and moving, so we're trying to enjoy doing nothing currently.

Miss anything: The ability to bend over quickly, which is necessary currently.


Movement: Lots of movement


Food cravings: Still having coffee in the mornings, nothing else really


Anything making you queasy or sick: All is well.

Have you started to show yet: Still showing

Gender: It's a boy!

Labor signs: Nope

Belly button in or out: Its still all the way in.  I'm hoping it stays that way.


Wedding rings on or off: On. 


Happy or moody most of the time: Very very happy. Couldn't ask for a better baby or husband.


Looking forward to: Moving at the end of September. Very ready to get settled before the new one arrives.

Names: Not even close to deciding.  This week at the park, there was a little boy named Jake.  I told Jacob again how much I liked his name (Jacob Charles) and I am VERY open to having a II around.  We could also call him Charlie if Jacob preferred.  I think Jacob is considering it.






Notes on Emerson:


Sweet baby Emerson is doing great.  She's really climbing and stands everywhere.  She even lets go often.  She's getting very brave and will hopefully start walking very soon.  She mimics a lot of the noises we make and tries to talk.  She loves her books and the Mickey Mouse Club House.  She dances a bit now and is still a big fan of clapping her hands.  Emerson is a very happy little girl and is getting to be more fun every day.
