Emma Kate’s 6 Month Pictures

Hey guys! We had an amazing weekend over here, an dI hope you did, too. My parents came in town for Emma Kate’s baby dedication, Bobby and I ran a 5k, and we had family over for a BBQ after church yesterday. More on that later though!

When Emma Kate turned six months old, we had professional photos taken of her to mark the occasion. We recently got them back, and they came out so cute! I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you.









Aren’t they adorable? I die. Rachel from Sweet Magnolia did a great job. if you live in the Jackson area and are looking for someone to take pictures of your baby or family, I highly recommend Rachel!

QOTD: Did you get 6 months photos taken of your child? Do you wish you had/hadn’t?

We now have two teeth! One popped up soon after she turned five months, and the other came just a few days later. She was a little fussy but took it like a champ. We have been consistently walking with her the correct way in the jogging stroller (no car seat) but not running that way just yet.

At her 6 month appointment, we got EK’s stats. She is 18 pounds two ounces (84%), and is in the 97% for height (no surprises there!) and 92% for head circumference.

Emma Kate is in size 3 diapers, and is busting out of her 6 month onesies. She is in 9 month sleepers full time, and most of her pants are 9 months. She is eating about 34/35 ounces of formula a day, and the new thing that was “big” this month, was starting solid food! It took her about a week to get used to and figure out the spoon, but home girl really loves her some bananas!

She is now officially in her bed full time. We had a bit of a setback when we came back from staying at my parents for a week where she slept in the swing, but we powered through and after a few rough days, she is accepting the crib (still taking SHORT naps) but she slept all night in the crib last night without waking up, hooray!

We are having a great time learning more and more about Emma Kate and can’t wait to see what the next 6 months bring. She is such a sweet smiley girl.

QOTD: When did your baby get their first tooth? Who thinks EK needs to do a diaper dash?
