Emerson is now 4 months

We are terrible at updating this blog , so as you can imagine, we have tons of cute pictures we would love to share. Emerson is growing so quickly. He has learned to pull my hair, laugh, smile a ton, and eat rice cereal. He love to read and play with all his friends. We are still waking up at night to eat, but it is not too bad bc he goes to sleep at 6:30 or 7:00. He is a light little bugger, so he is rolling all over the place as he sleeps. His latest position is on his stomach with his little booty pushed up in the air. It is so cute. Enjoy the pictures.

From One Month till now

Hey everybody. Sorry that I took so long to bring you an update, but it has been a crazy few weeks. We are still adjusting to life as parents and learning something new everyday. Emerson gets bigger everyday, and now we can actually use more of his clothes.
He got his shots not long ago, and he is a string bean. His height is in the 90% and his weight is in the 45%. I'm sure he will start to fill out soon enough. Mom doesn't know what to do with a baby Emerson's size. Soon he will be as big as I was.
Anyway, I'll try not to take so long for the next post, and I'll have another slide show to come.

First weeks at home with Emerson

Emerson has now been here almost 2 weeks. Here at home we have had so much fun getting to know him, and we are learning alot quickly. Like most babies he loves to eat and poop, and he hates bath time and diaper changes. Hopefully these experiences will become more enjoyable for him. It makes me sad to see him cry.

My mom just left on Wednesday after staying with us for a week. I wasn't sure if we would make it thru the night, but all is well. We appreciate so much all she did for us. We could not have made it without our families.

Stewart has been the best dad. Since he has the month of July off he is tons of help. He has been staying up and rocking him to sleep after late night feedings and changing lots of diapers. I have no clue what I am going to do when he actually has to go to work:)

Emerson has his first doctors appointment on Monday. Please continue to pray for his good health.

I can still hardly believe Stewart and I are actually parents. That is scary:)

...and then there were THREE!!

As one of our visitors told us in the hospital, "you come in as two and you leave as three".

It's amazing to think that the 40 week journey that started in the fall has come to a close, and now we start an even more amazing adventure. The morning sickness and enlarging bellies will now be replaced with baby diapers and sleepless nights.

On June 30th of 2008, Emerson Alexander Boyd came into the world at 7:03 PM. He was 6 lbs 15 oz and 19.5 inches long (much different from his dad who was almost 10 lbs). Melissa did an amazing job during delivery (and entire pregnancy), and she is feeling great.

Thank you to everyone that came to hospital to see us, and I really appreciate all the support and prayers. We are so very blessed to have this brand new bundle of joy and look forward to all the fun and excitement.
