Emerson Lately (15 Months!)

8.22.2012

A few days ago I was looking back at some of the pictures from Emerson's birthday and I was shocked to see how much older she looks now. It's weird to know that it happens right before our very eyes even if we don't always see it. She turned 15 months old on the 18th so I wanted to share a few highlights from the last month.

Growth: Around 23 pounds, 30 inches tall, 12 teeth with 2 more coming in

Likes: riding her bike, the playground, music, Elmo, animals, pushing buttons, climbing, blowing bubbles, putting stuff in the trashcan (sometimes it's trash, sometimes it's not!), sitting in bins/boxes, eating

Dislikes: being cooped up in inside, waiting for something, being told no or not getting her way

Favorite Foods: tomatoes, apples, milk, bananas, yogurt

Favorite Books: Happy Baby colors, Pat the Bunny, I Love You Through and Through, Baby's First 100 Words

Favorite Songs: ABCs, Twinkle Twinkle, Three Little Birds

Favorite Words: no, up, Momma, Eme (for Emerson), baby



(It's getting harder and harder to get her still enough to take video but I want to remember all of the cute things she is doing at this age so please excuse the terrible editing and the lengthiness!)

Favorite Toys: play keys, stuffed animals or babydolls, play kitchen

Firsts: went down the big water slide with Daddy, tried her first, popsicle, attended her first family reunion, tasted banana pudding

Sweet Little Details: Emerson has become quite the little copycat and will repeat just about anything that we say. I am amazed at all of the new words she is learning. I think she is going to be just like her momma: a non-stop talker!

She learned to say amen at the end of the prayer. She does it with the biggest grin on her face. It's so precious!

We went through a week long hitting phase this month but she seems to have gotten over that, thank goodness!! We also had our first real temper tantrum but we haven't had any big ones since then.

She has finally started wearing bows again! Yay! She will occasionally pull them off but she leaves them on for the most part. She has become OBSESSED with hats and sunglasses and wants to wear them all day long. 

I don't want to forget: Emerson loves to say I love you and it still melts my heart every single time. She will randomly walk up to Jesse or me and kiss our leg and say I love you. She also recognizes the sign for I love you and will say it when we show her the sign. It has to be the sweetest thing I have ever seen. She is still super cuddly and loves giving hugs and kisses. It's so much fun to see her show her love for us. I think being a Momma just gets better and better every day and I constantly thank God for blessing us with this amazing little girl!



Happy 15 Months Sweet E! I love you with all my heart!

I'm so impressed with her words! Henry still will only say Mumumumum and DAD. And then will repeat some words we say but he never says them on his own. Love the photo of you in your matching outfits!
