She is currently obsessed with puppy dogs ("ruff-ruff") and gets so excited to see any on TV or around the house or at the park. A few weeks ago when we went to Grant's Farm, she thought the goats were dogs. I didn't correct her.
She is eating so much better since her molars came in, which is a huge stress reliever for me. I hated feeding her dinner every night and knowing she wasn't going to eat.... which is why it's fairly common for her to have ice cream after dinner. I needed that baby to eat some sort of calories. (When you ask Em if she'd like some ice cream, she says: "Happy!").
She is really warming up to Ben a lot more. It's really funny when he touches something of hers and she "corrects" him. "BennnnAHH!" Emerson will now bring Ben a toy when I ask and doesn't mind as much if he touches her. Sometimes she'll even go over to him to smile and play. Her favorite time to holler for Ben and talk to him though is when he's sleeping. She loves to wake him up.
Emerson sleeps in her big girl bed every night without issue. She used to fall out on occasion so we used that pool noodle trick and she hasn't hit the ground since. I'm super good at parenting.
She gives us kisses and told Jacob this morning, "Dad, I love you". Such a sweet baby. She is also very ornery and likes to have fun. She's just got a ton of personality.
Ben is continuing his growing. He sleeps all night about once every three weeks. He just needs a snack in between 7p and 7a. He's getting too big for 12 month clothes... At 5 months.
Benny is happy all the time and has such a great smile and very pretty eyes.
All in all, it's going well and it's getting easier to have Irish Twins.
