Emerson @ 8 Months

I can't believe my sweet baby boy is already 8 months old!!! I am so in love with that lovey bug! I thought I'd do a little blog all about my favorite son!

He is such a busy guy. He was my most active baby in the womb and that is still holding true. He is always on the move, into everything. He will make for one interesting toddler. He can sit up and army crawls around the whole house.


He has been awarded the "Best Davis Baby" award. Seriously, he is happy, content, chill, a good sleeper, on a great schedule, and never really fusses. Finley was a happy baby too, but not on a great schedule..but that's mostly our faults! Ha! Rowynn....well RoRo, was not a happy all! Thankfully she is now a pretty happy and incredibly sweet kid, although she has her beast moments.



Anyway, back to my lovey bug. He is on formula now because he wasn't gaining weight on Mommy milk, so we switched him to formula and is gaining weight nicely. He is 16 lbs and in a size 3 diaper. He had an ear infection at his 6 month check-up but that has cleared up. He adores his big sisters, loves to swing, loves balloons, swimming, avocado, banana, sweet potato, his glo-baby, Mr. Fox, his blanket, his daddy, reading, balls, and climbing in tight spaces. He can say "Ma-ma" and "Da-da" and ALWAYS has his tongue sticking out. I call him "Brother-Butt" or "Lovey Bug" and Kyle calls him "Boudreaux" We have a thing in our family where everyone has several nicknames! That's just how we roll!

He is our one and only thumb sucker and it is the cutest thing ever! He usually wakes up between 6-7 and goes down for a morning nap between 9-10 and sleeps until about 12. His afternoon nap is sometime between 2-4 and goes to bed at 7:30 and wakes up about 11 for his last feeding.

I have made up a song for him (I make up songs a lot. Like all the time...I'm my father's daughter. And apparently I've passed this on to Finley because she makes up songs too)

                         Lovey bug, lovey bug
                         Oh my lovey bug
                         Lovey bug, lovey bug
                         Sweet-sweet lovey bug
                         Lovey bug, lovey bug
                         Oh my lovey bug
                         You are my lovey bug!

  (and sometimes I'll sing a second and third verse and trade Emerson or Baby Boy for Lovey bug)

Dear Emerson,

I love you so much lovey bug! You have made us all so happy and filled us with so much joy. Your sisters are enamored by you, they absolutely love their baby! Your Daddy is so smitten, he's so proud to have a son and so tickled that you both share a middle name. He loves reading poems to you and you get so excited when he comes home in the evenings. Although you are quite the Momma's boy!!! You are my little love bug and are always snuggling with me. You love to pull my hair and take off your Daddy's glasses. You aren't too fond of large crowds, but are a very happy baby. You love water..swimming, bathtime. You are such a sweetie pie and I feel so blessed that you are my son. I love you so much baby boy and pray that you grow into a man after God's heart. You are so strong and love to explore. You are my baby boy and I will love you forever!!
