almost 4 months!

We can't believe Emmett is almost 4 months old already. Time is flying by! He is laughing, always smiling, exploring everything around him, and is even starting to recognize his name. We've started putting him in his excersaucer toy and he likes it, but only lasts about 5 minutes in it. Such a workout lifting that big head! He is finally starting to like tummy time and arches his back like he is trying to roll over. He has his 4-month check-up soon so we will let you know his height and weight.

last bit of summer

I thought I'd post a picture of these pretty flowers Ethnie picked on our blog because we won't be seeing anything like them for awhile with winter right around the corner. Sigh... Even though the weather has been absolutely gorgeous and I am so grateful for it, I am DREADING the freezing air right behind it. Winter is so hard for me and having an infant does not make it any easier.
With that in mind, we are going to care for and savor these flowers as long as possible!

mn zoo trip

We had a family day and decided to go to the Zoo. We had a great time. We were able to see the dolphins being fed (Ethnie's favorite) and a female monkey nursing her baby! Emmett was calm and happy the entire time. The weather was pleasant so we were able to see most of the outdoor animals.
