Emmitt 4 Months and Blanket Forts

Yep! It is that time again! Well, sort of! I am a couple of days early, but that is because I won't be able to post this actually ON his 4 month birthday. SO it is what it is!

Emmitt is growing SO fast! It is kind of sad, but yet we are glad that it means his sleeping patterns are changing for the better (at least at night!). Emmitt weighs 16.5 lbs (as of a week ago when he went to the doctor) and is almost 25 inches in length. He is mostly in size 6-9 month clothes, but can still fit into some 3-6 month clothing (as pictured below). He still wears size 3 diapers and is in a size 3 shoe.He is giggling even more. He has developed a squeal and almost scream lately. He is SO close to rolling over on his tummy from his back. He can get on his side really easily. He tries to see what is behind him which is just what he needs to do to roll over. He is still eating 5 ounces per bottle every three hours. Sometimes when he is done he will complain because it is gone, but when we attempt to give him 6, he won't eat more than 5! Just today, I started to feed him rice twice daily. Starting next week, he will slowly start eating all kinds of other foods. He is such a fun boy. He has the brightest smile! He is a cuddly boy too! He likes to hold my hand or his blanket in his hands as he goes to sleep! Much different than Jesstine! She would rather just be put in bed to fall asleep on her own! He would rather stay a while! So, here are the chair pictures! 

 His buddy the Elephant!
 Yeah, it is getting much harder to get good pictures of him without his hands in his mouth! (Also, I removed the red eye, but forgot to crop, so you will be seeing a bit of my front doorway!)
He has also been named the "Spasmanian Devil." He is constantly jerking his arms and legs (when his hands aren't in his mouth). This was probably the best picture of all of the chair pictures, but he is about to fall down because he is jerking around! LOL! Sweet boy!

So, not to leave Jesstine out, it has been fun around here this week. Both kids were sick at the end of last week, so we didn't get much playing in! We made up for it this week. Our friends Kylie and Carter came to play!
 First it was princess dress up (Kylie brought her own dress and shoes. Jesstine's were just not good enough! She likes the purple crown we have though!)
 Carter had to get in the picture too! You can't see it, but he has a magic wand as well!
 Jesstine was inspired by Emmitt's bed (see the last post) and a book, If You Give a Pig a Party, to make a blanket fort. So I made one for her, Kylie and Carter to play in. It has a tunnel out the back...
 Lots of room for a tea party....
 And even a front door!!
Have a great day!!!

In Him,
The Hutchins Family
