Training camp

Football season is almost here. And Emerson is ready! Thanks to Paul and Anne for the Titans duds!

It remains to be determined if Emerson will be the youngest fan in our local sports bar.

Baby in a box

At dinner, Eric suddenly says: "That box is perfect!"

For what, you ask?

I believe this is what fathers are for.

Four months old

He's quite the little dude, this Emerson. He's starting to grab things with his hands and has gotten much better at getting things into his mouth (including but not limited to his hands). He rolls over on occasion, both directions.* His pediatrician reports that he is in the 95th percentile for height at nearly 27 inches, but only the 50th percentile for weight. Good thing he's kind of skinny because otherwise his 25th percentile head might look a little weird.

*When I first heard people use this phrase I thought they meant he could roll over to the left and roll over to the right. I guess I have seen Zoolander too many times. Luckily, Emerson seems to be an "ambi-roller."

Emerson almost goes swimming

In Healdsburg this weekend, we spent some time at the "beach" on the Russian River.

Better than a swim - a nap in the beach shelter.

Emerson and Aviv "play"

My friend Polina kindly agreed to watch Emerson for me for a little bit yesterday. When I went to pick him up she said: "I tried to make them play together but they mostly just kicked each other."

Thanks to Tim Logan for the hipster onesie and to Emerson's Great Grandmother Dorothy for the quilt!

Found one!

Turns out we did take one photo from the weekend. This photo was taken on the deck in front of our cabin.

I like how Eric and Emerson are making the same face. Not long after this photo was taken, Emerson needed a diaper change. That's all I know.

Underphotographed weekend

We took Emerson and Gama, who is visiting to help take care of him, with us to Jamaica and Nelson's Love Party in the Santa Cruz mountains this weekend. It was an amazing event all around. Emerson was a great traveler. Gama was wonderful taking care of him while Eric and I enjoyed the festivities. However, we completely neglected to take photos. I have no explanation for this other than that we were so enjoying ourselves in the present moment that we completely forgot it should also be captured in photographs. Sorry! More to come soon, I promise.
