2 Months Old

Emma Jane is two months old already!

She doesn’t have her 2 month appointment for a few more weeks, but she weighed in at 12.5 pounds just over a week ago. I love my chunky babies!



Emma loves to munch on her fists, but still doesn’t love her binky.

She’s been smiling since 6 weeks, although still not consistently.

She’s also been cooing since about 6 weeks but she’s a quiet baby like Nathan was.

She loves to sit up and look around and gets mad when she can’t see everything that’s going on.

We love our little sweetie and can’t wait to see her personality unfold!

I took this picture of Nathan holding Emma the other day.


It reminds me a lot of this picture of me holding my brother Kevin.

Heather and Kevin September 30, 1989

Kevin and I are almost the exact same age apart as Nathan and Emma. In these pictures, Nathan and I are 3 years and a few months, and Kevin and Emma are about 2 months old (Kevin just over and Emma just under).

Nathan was a huge baby, just like his Uncle Kevin. Kevin was 20 lbs at 4 months and Nathan was 18 lbs at 4 months. I don’t think Emma is going to be quite such a chunker, but I still love to see how huge she looks in Nathan’s arms!


On a side note, here’s me and Kevin again about 5 years ago. I was smaller then, and he was bigger. Darn for me.

I debated about whether I wanted to get pictures done right after having a baby, since I really would prefer not to remember myself in this saggy, sleep-deprived state. I’m so glad we did it, though! I’m going to treasure these pictures forever!
