3 months…

January 10, 2009 Leave a comment

Hey everyone!

Since we last talked her are a couple of things that happened to lil’ Emerson:

She got her first set of shots! Now…you would think that the shots would have been the worst part, but in actuality it was the ‘ear-a-scope’…the pokey thing that went in her ear. That started her up…but the shots didn’t seem to make it worse, and by the time all was said and done, she quite a quiet baby.

Last time we posted a video of Emerson doing her best to hold her head up…she’s still at about the same place, but continues to work on it.

Mommy’s maternity time is winding down which means Emerson will be making her first trip to Daycare on January 19th. Daddy gets to drop her off…because if it were up to mommy…it’d never happen. Think…Uncle Jesse dropping off the twins on Full House.

Annie and Emerson went out with Aunt B.K. and Grandma wedding dress shopping…NOT for Emerson but for Aunt B.K.! Talk about some fun girl time.

Emerson made it through her first trip to the Rivertown Crossings Mall…talk about a crazy time to go shopping…those “After Christmas Sales” are nuts!

We finally got together with Jeremy’s family for Christmas…we went to New Holland Brewery for dinner…the drive from our house to downtown Holland was all that was needed to put Emerson to sleep. In fact…she slept through the entire dinner!

We think that’s about it…Jeremy has been taking lots of pictures with his iPhone…here are a couple that he snapped…

That’s it for this post…we’ll share more soon!

Holy Moly!

Wow…so, “It’s been a while” doesn’t even seem to scratch the surface of how long it’s been since we last brought you some fun. So…let’s play some catch up!

In the month of November, we had…well…Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving was nice, the 3 of us ventured out to Illinois to visit that side of the family and Emerson is impressive on long trips. She made it all the way to the Ogden exit before getting frustrated completely.

November also brought light to the fact that Emerson no longer likes bottles. Ever since that fun little discovery, we’ve been battling…and losing. However…we aren’t out of tricks…yet.

December brought ‘Cookie Baking’ at Jeremy’s side of the family…which was a lot of fun, except…we forgot to bring home our cookies. Oh well…our bodies said, “thanks”.

December also brought Emerson’s first photo op with Santa. We dressed her up in her little reindeer outfit and snapped one at the mall…too bad she was sleeping! Oh…speaking of Santa…We took Emerson to the Christmas Parade in Downtown Holland…talk aboutsome¬† cold weather!

Emerson got to meet a close friend in December. The Meyerings welcomed Gibson into their family in November and Emerson finally got a chance to meet him in December. Once again…Emerson likes to sleep.

Emerson & Gibson

Emerson got her first Pony for Christmas, except Mom and Dad won’t be giving it to her until she takes a bottle. In fact, the bottle thing is holding her back in a few other aspects…She can’t go golfing with Grandpa, She can’t get a puppy either, and She can’t go to the prom. Well, maybe not that last one…

OH! One other thing we’ve been working on with Emerson is ‘Tummy-Time’! Click here to see a video!

Talk to you soon?

Going on 5 weeks…already?

November 11, 2008 Leave a comment

Yes, the title to this post is correct, Emerson is almost 5 weeks old! What has she accomplished in the last 5 weeks? Well…here’s a few things:

  • Lots of crying.
  • Lots of poop…ehem…diapers.
  • A few trips downtown Holland in the stroller.
  • A few trips to Target.
  • Lots of pictures. (more to come)
  • Visited the radio station twice.
  • And…visited 2 new states on the way to Grandma’s House!

That’s right, Emerson went on her first trip to Illinois. She did great…well…up until about 20 minutes to Grandma’s house…and then on the return trip…she did great up until 20 minutes to Home. So, looks like her Maximum Trip-o-meter is 2 hours and 10 minutes!

Anyway…here are some more pictures from Emerson’s trip!


Uncle Adam and his girlfriend Kara.

That’s all for this exciting post…check back for more pictures. (Probably in another week or so!)
