A Weekend of Firsts

Emerson experienced many firsts this weekend. On Saturday she attended her first parade with Mom and Dad. We went to the Leprechaun Days Parade in Rosemount. Aside from being scared of the fire engine horn we think she enjoyed herself. Sunday she experienced her first real food too. Mommy and Daddy fed her some baby oatmeal cereal. We think she enjoyed chomping on the spoon as much as the cereal!

She's also started to roll from her back to her tummy now (see picture), so now we really have our work cut out for us!

Hi Everyone!

Emerson here again! I received a clean bill of health at my appointment last Saturday, that was the good news. The bad news is I was deemed well enough to get my shots! I was a brave little girl for the first one, but I didn't particularly care for the next three. Mommy and Daddy helped me through it though. Later that afternoon I watched my cousin Chase play baseball, then on Sunday I went shoe shopping with Mommy and Auntie Tasha. Daddy took this picture of me tonight after we got home from daycare.

Little Sweetie

Emerson's 4 month appointment last week went fairly well, but we learned she does have her first ear infection to go along with the cold she's been carrying for the past two weeks. We've been giving her an antibiotic for the ear infection, and hooking her up to a nebulizer to break apart her cold. She has been doing pretty well with all of these new experiences.

The good news is she's right on track with regard to physical and cognitive development. She weighed 15lbs 10oz and measured 24" long.

Last weekend she attended her 3rd Twins game of the season and spent some time with Grandma and Grandpa Hubbell.

4 Months Old!

Little Emerson turns 4 months old today! Mom and Dad celebrated by going to Cold Stone for some ice cream. Her 4 month check up is this Friday and we will be sure to post more that day.

Happy 4th of July!

Emerson celebrated her first 4th of July this year. She and Mommy and Daddy met some friends at Cleary Lake for a BBQ this afternoon. We played some games, then cooled off in the lake for a bit. The weather started to look pretty ominous, so we packed up and headed home around 6:00 where Emerson went straight into the bathtub.

She is also just getting over her first real cold. Her little nose has been stuffed up for a couple of days causing a couple of restless nights, but hopefully the worst is behind us.
