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."
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.
