big boy emerson

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.


  1. Oh Emerson is absolutley adorable Corrie! He has those cheeks that you’d want to kiss to death! Gorgeous :)

  15. Such a gorgeous wee boy. Can’t help but love him. The quilt is gorgeous. I bought a quilt in the auction too. Should be here next week. As for Bonds Wondersuits, they are a favourite of mine too. Makes a baby look like a baby, if you know what I mean. Makes them easier to hold too. I love the dark blue Emerson is wearing. Jacinta

  16. Oh he’s definitely a very cute baby! I love babies in Bonds wondersuits too – I don’t know why, but it really does make them feel extra cuddly. My babies lived in Bonds suits. That is such a beautiful quilt!
