It's funny, I still don't call you Emerson to your face. You go by so many nicknames at home, with the most predominant one as "Monster." We started calling you Monster when you were first born because you were just so itty bitty, and we love our irony. And now "Monster" has evolved into many new affectionate nicknames including Monstress, Monsterlicious, Monsterific and Monster Mash.

|I NEED a real camera! Having so many blurry pictures of you in unacceptable!|
You are obviously very advanced for your mere 13 weeks because you've discovered you own dialect, with vocab such as "Ahgoo" and "Oooeeuuu." And several times now, when someone has said "Hi" to you, I swear to Bob you said "Hi" back. I have witnesses - you are a genius.
Your best friends are still Duckie, Puppy, and the newest addition to the Wubbanub family, Horsey. Except now you use them not just for a pacifier, but you just love to gnaw on their arms and legs. Ahhh, carnivorism... so adorable.
Every single day with you gets better, and though I want you to be a baby forever, watching you grow makes me so proud to be your mom.
