Happy 4 month birthday Emmett!

My how you’ve grown, little one!

Big apologies for our absence on the blog lately.  A month ago I started working again, and shortly thereafter Emmett started going to daycare.  It’s been an adjustment, but we’re finally settling in to the new routine.  Of course there are still kinks to be worked out, but I feel like we have it mostly figured out.

I did somehow manage to get it together enough to take photos of Emmett on or near his birthday each month.  It is amazing to see him grow physically, mentally, and socially every day.  He concentrates so hard when he wants to grab an object.  And the smiles just melt our hearts.

Emmett’s growth so far:


Weight: 8 lbs, 4 oz.  Length: 20 inches.  Full head of hair.  Skills: none.

1 month

Weight: 11 lbs (approx).  Hair falling out.  Skills: tracking moving objects with eyes.

2 months 

Weight: 13 lbs, 5 oz.  Length: 24 inches.  Mostly bald.  Skills: lifting head up when lying on tummy or upright, batting at objects, social smiles (occasionally), jumping (with daddy’s help).

3 months

Weight and height: unknown, but most 3-month sized clothing is too small for him.  Hair growing back.  Skills: head control, sucking on hands, playing piano with feet (sort of), lots of social smiles, batting at objects and trying to grab them.

4 months

Weight: 16 lbs.  Length: 27 inches.  Hair growing in nicely.  Skills: standing and sitting up with support, grabbing objects and holding on, interacting with other babies, TONS of smiling, some laughing, squealing, babbling.  Sometimes taking a decent nap at daycare.  Starting to be able to sooth self back to sleep when semi-awakened.

That’s the quick recap of our sweet little boy’s first four months.  He is the happiest, sweetest baby and we are having a wonderful time.
