Emerson is doing well, though she is getting a little emotional...little fits, etc. when she can't communicate well or she doesn't get her way. She has been very good about calming down though when we stop and tell her why something is happening or we talk to her about using her words. I hope she stays logical and reasonable as she learns how to talk.
Emerson has a large vocabulary that is getting bigger, but I thought she would talk more by now. She turned 17 months on 4/22/15. I'd say she probably knows 50-75 words, but she is sporadic in using them and really only has a use for words like "up", "helpa", "pleeeeaaasssseeee", and "done". She will surprise us with new words every few days though - wow, blueberry, and ruff ruff are a few from the last few weeks.
Benjamin is doing great too. He is still a lover and I can't tell you how nice it is that he loves me so much. He is almost googly eyed when I talk to him and he now reaches up to touch my face. He still loves kisses so much and smiles so big when you tell him he's handsome.
Ben went to the doctor today for his 4 month appointment/vaccinations. He's 4.5 months old and I was so excited to hear what percentile he would be in for height/weight. I knew he weighed a lot from his last cold and being weighed (and my arm going numb if he falls asleep on me), but I wasn't sure if he was tall or not.
The verdict is in. Benjamin was 19lbs, 11 oz. and 27 and 1/2 inches long. He is in the 95th% for weight and the 99th% for height! He's the size of a 9-10 month old! Our ped recommended we start feeding him more than the one meal a day he's eating. After all, he is a growing boy.
And finally, my HANDSOME, WONDERFUL, AMAZING Husband turned 31 this week. I couldn't ask for a better man or a better life ❤️😍!
