8 weeks

Emerson Stripes

At 8 weeks you:
Have a whole new set of "words"- ah-goo, gee, ah-gee, jai, unga.
Smile when you see me. Smile when you hear people laugh.
Weigh at least 11 lbs.
Only get up once or twice a night.
Prefer to nap on me in the afternoon.
Love Norah Jones and Alexi Murdoch.
Have grown out of all of your newborn clothes.
Have full, long eyelashes.
Still make people stop and say something about how beautiful you are.
Can really hold your head up and look around when you choose.
Can STAND with a little balance help so that big noggin doesn't pull you down.
Make us so happy.

I love you Bug. Mwah!

edit to add: At the 2 month check up you weighed in at 11 lbs, 10 oz and measured 22.25 inches. Wow!

Emerson is SUCH a cutie!!!
