5 Months

Baby Emma turned 5 months old last week. She’s getting so fun!

Nathan in particular is having fun with Emma. and she loves him too. He loves to run to her crib and say “dood morning!” in a sweet little voice whenever she wakes up. He also likes to call her chubby chubby chubby which comes out sounding like “tubby tubby tubby”. It’s pretty dang cute.

She loves him too, as you can see in the video.

Emma is starting to get a lot more vocal and can squeal in a pitch that I didn’t know was possible for humans. She’s also getting pretty good at blowing raspberries. She somehow still manages to be cute and girly while she does it though.

This baby is a drool machine right now. I think she’s getting a tooth (Nathan didn’t get his first until 11 months!) because she wants to bite hard on anything that comes near her mouth.

Emma still has her fuzzy hair. It likes to stick straight up on the top, and goes from looking blonde, to strawberry blonde, to brown.

Underneath that fuzzy hair, Emma has a very bumpy head. It goes beyond the “I only sleep on one side” flat baby head, which she also has. I’m supposed to take her to Seattle Children’s Hospital to get it checked out.

For the last month, we have been thinking Emma was ready to eat solids. She acts SO interested in food, but every time we try she’s completely and utterly disgusted.

She’ll open her mouth for a bite, but not for the second one.

She doesn’t seem to think she’s missing anything, though.

I wouldn’t be surprised (or disappointed) if Emma decided to wait a long time to be mobile, but she is getting stronger and working on all sorts of smart baby things like rolling over.

Emma doesn’t sleep with her arm over her face any more (maybe it got too chubby). Now she pulls her blanket over her face every time she goes to sleep and I get to constantly worry that she's going to smother herself.

I don’t know where nicknames comes from, but my kids have some weird ones. All these silly names just come out of my mouth and sometimes, one of them sticks. Right now, my favorite nickname for Emma is “Chubby Muffin”. I think it fits. She, on the other hand, is a little offended!

We love our Sweetie Pie Emma!

Adorable. :) Ethnie got her first 2 teeth at 5 months and Leo got his at 9 months. Every kids is different. But she drooled like that, too, when she was teething. ;)
