15 Months

Sunday, November 2nd, 2014 // by alicia

Emmett has been growing up like crazy! We took him to the doctor a couple weeks ago and he is still on track for being one of the tallest kids in his age group!


Height: 33″ – 97%
Weight: 24 lb 13 oz – 79%
Head Circumference: 46.7 cm – 48%

He is walking and running all over the place, getting into cupboards, taking anything he can carry, banging it against the floor or his hands, all the while laughing and giggling and talking. I just love  watching him explore everything.

He loves to push the button on the iPhone and iPad, he loves pushing the music buttons on his toys and does a little head bob when music plays, he loves taking the pot lids and banging them on the floor (which I do not love), he enjoys getting the tupperware out and putting the lids on the containers, and he absolutely loves his daddy.

We FaceTime Joel almost every day and he gets the biggest smile on his face when his dad’s face shows up on the phone. Then Emmett takes Joel on a little walk, I’m sure Joel gets dizzy from this walk, and it’s just so cute how excited Emmett gets when he sees his dad come home. When he hears the garage door open he gets up and goes to the garage door and waits for him to come inside.

Emmett just makes our lives so happy and exciting.

Right now he has a runny nose – I don’t think it’s from teething because he doesn’t usually get runny noses from teething, but he’s had it for a week now and it’s not getting any better. :( Poor kid hates it when I suck out the snot, but he feels better when it’s finished, at least that’s what I tell myself to make myself feel better for making him cry. :(

Emmett has 12 teeth now, front 4 on top and bottom and 4 molars.


10 Months

Let’s see… what happened at 10 months old…

He walks along furniture. And gets into cupboards. He got his first haircut! He didn’t do too bad – we put him in the bumbo and Calli cut while I held his hands. It was a good team effort. I don’t think he even screamed so that’s good. :)

He also rode on a bike for the first time. Calli has a baby seat that goes on the front of her bike that he rode in. He loved it. He looks pretty cute in pink helmets as well. :)

Emmett is growing up fast. Within the last month he has learned to sit up from laying down, pulled himself up on anything he can, walks along furniture (slowly, but he does it), crawls, and walk in his walker. Oh my goodness he is turning out to be a little cutie. He is so fun to play with these days. He giggles all of the time – so cute to listen to.

He loves to play with the wheels on his cars, big legos, mom’s glasses, balls, plastic bags, and anything he finds on the floor basically.

9 month stats:

Height: 30″ – 97%

Weight: 20 lbs 4 oz. – 61%

Head: 44.7 cm. – 40%

He has 5 teeth with a sixth one really close to breaking through.

He also loves to play outside on a blanket on the grass – he doesn’t like the grass very much.

We took him on an airplane for the first time the beginning of May. He did alright – better than I expected which I was very grateful. We flew to Boston for Joel’s work meetings. Emmett and I hung out with Renee, Joel’s boss’ wife, while Joel was in meetings. We went shopping and walked around. We had lots of fun.

Here are some fun picture we took of him at 9.5 months old. Enjoy!

Faces of Emmett

I’ve been watching Emmett most of today (Saturday), and his naps have been short and not very sweet. He’s tired, but won’t admit to it, so his emotions can go from happy to sad in just a few seconds. I figured I’d document that for you.

I might add, I love the big windows in our house – window light can make some great photos with no effort! Well, having a pricey camera and lens helps too, but still!
