Oops I think I’ve missed a few updates on Emerson. I started out well but he’s the 5th baby so I tend to just take photos on instagram rather than take a picture of every single thing he does like you do with your first baby. I think I can sum up emerson in 3 words…….big happy baby. Retro daddy keeps saying ‘I know we can’t say who is the cutest baby but I really think emerson is our cutest baby’.
And look at him….he has that perfect roly poly baby look going on right now. And he’s always happy. We had a little blip with his bronchiolitis which made him cranky and he still has a cough that makes people turn and stare but he’s happy!
And he’s oh soooo snuggly when he’s in his wondersuit. I know there are fancier jumpsuits out there but I love little babies in a cuddly bonds suit. You just want to snuggle up against him.
and here’s the money shot that I snapped on instagram – I think it has a little fred astaire quality about it. Looks like he’s kicking his heels together. And combined with his sweet little happy face I’d say it’s a perfect snapshot of him at 4 months.
OK, well that’s enough bragging about that cute baby of mine. How about the quilt he’s on? No, I did not make it. The very talented Rita of Red Pepper Quilts did and I bought it. And that’s all retro daddy needs to know. It’s a need to know basis. I was going to put it away until Christmas but I had to put emerson on it and just admire the whole quilt. We have a lot of girly girl quilts in this house but now emerson has one for his room and to be a model on. And it’s perfect. But now it’s wrapped up and we’re not touching it till Christmas.
