Today I am….9 Months Old!

Baby Milestones development 9 months old 36 weeks

 

Today is a very special milestone for little baby Emmeline. Today, and yes TODAY (I haven’t missed this update, first time ever I think!) Emmie is 9 months old. Special because she has been out in the big wide world for as long as she was tucked away in my tummy. So it’s been another month since Emmie’s 8 month update and another 4 weeks that have passed far too quickly. She is growing up very fast and has come leaps and bounds this month. without furthur ado, Today I am 9 months old!

Emmie and I popped along to clinic this morning after I dropped Finlay at school ready to self weigh. I stripped Emmie off and popped her on the scales. The scale read 7.465kg, I didn’t have my little red book, but It was only 4oz heavier than her last weigh in.… Read More

Today I am….6 Months Old!

baby milestones development 6 months 24 weeks

 

I know, I know I am late with this one again. Emmie turned 6 months on the 06th September, wow! Half a year, how did that happen?! The last few weeks since my last update have passed in a bit of a blur to be honest as Finlay started school. So we’re just getting used to our new routine. So really Emmies half year milestone kind of blended into life, I hear that happens a lot with number two, and well anymore after that just have to be thankful for a birthday card haha! Seriously though, I don’t remember time passing quite so fast with Finlay. How it happened I don’t know, but today Emmie is 6 months old!

So last month I began with Emmie’s slight drop on the percentiles as it kind of threw me off guard. To be honest, it was silly, but as I am a natural worrier it got to me.… Read More

Today I am….5 Months Old

baby development milestones 5 months 20 weeks

 

Yay, I am only a few days late with Emmie’s 5 month update! Turn on that broken record, but man, these past 4 weeks have literally disappeared before my eyes! Maybe it’s because my last update was two weeks late, I don’t know. It just seems time is going a lot faster this time round. I swear she will be toddling in a few months. I can’t believe I am writing this, here is Emmie’s 5 Month update:

 

5 Months

 

Weight: 13lbs 4oz

I have literally just come back from the clinic after getting Emmie weighed. I was so surprised to find out she had dropped a number of percentiles. She has started looking so porky?!? Ordinarily, I don’t think I would worry too much. Emmie was always on the wee side but happily followed her 25 centile line. Now though she has dropped to maybe the 13th centile or there about’s.… Read More

Today I am….. 4 Months Old

baby milestones development 4 months old 16 weeks

 

I’m running a few weeks late with this update. My excuses reasons are: Allergic reaction to conjunctivitis (me), Sickness bug (Emmie and Fin), Head Injury (Fin), Birth of new Cousin (Aunty) and a week off together (the four of us)! However, on 06th July Emmie turned 4 months! I feel like a broken record but really, has a month passed since Emmie’s 3 month update? Time continues to fly by incredibly fast and Emmie is growing bigger by the day, the past month has been incredible and we have hit some exciting milestones before they were even expected!

 

4 Months

 

Weight: 12lbs 6oz

 

So this past month, Emmie went bald!!! Not completely, she had a fine covering, but considering she was born with lots of dark hair, she has turned into a little egg head. I expect it will grow back like Fin’s as they seem to be quite similar in colouring, time will tell.… Read More

The first 4 weeks passed in a bit of a blur, in fact, I don’t know where the last 4 weeks have gone! I looked at Emmie the other day and I couldn’t believe how big she was. Where did my scrawny little newborn go?

 

Emmie has become more aware of her surrounding over these last few weeks and I love how much she adores her big brother.… Read More
