Emily is now 14 weeks old today.

That’s just over 3 months.

Whoa.

Let’s just let that sink in for a moment….

14 whole weeks.

Happy Sad Jim

 

 

Right, so, rather than give you a big ol’ blog update on things, we’re going to give you a run down on some of Emily’s milestones and bunch of stellar photos with some captions on recent adventures! We thought about doing something for each one, but let’s be honest: ain’t nobody got time for that when they have a baby in the house!

 

MILESTONES

13 Week* Weight: 4.85 kg / 10.7 lbs

13 Week* Height: 60 cm / 23.6 in

Likes: cooing with mom and dad, hugs from mom and dad, seeing the world at the same level as mom and dad, having mom sing, smiling, eating, napping and nighttime sleep, stroller walks (most of the time), using the rattle, playing with hands, baths (sometimes – progress!)

Dislikes: being strapped tight into the car seat, being hungry, the feeling of falling, baths (most of the time)

*Growth tracker is based on last pediatrician visit with Dr. K. Because Emily’s VSD decreased in size so much, she decided Emily doesn’t need to check-in weekly but instead will do so every 2 weeks!

 

ADVENTURES

Emily’s First Photo Shoot:

Most babies are photographed professionally a few days after they are born, but because Emily was in hospital for the first 24 days of her life, we had to wait until she was just over 4 weeks old. Check out some of Emily’s photos below and more on the Diamondview Photography blog!

Baby Movie Dates:

Every Thursday at 1pm, select Cineplex have ‘Stars and Strollers’: a baby friendly movie experience for parents and caregivers. The theatre has dimmed lighting, lowered volume, change tables/diapers/wipes, and a microwave for heating baby’s food. They also have 2 new movies each week to choose from. As a family, we all went to see Keanu. Then, Emily and I then went to see Captain America: Civil War the next week, and then just this past week we went to see X:Men Apocalypse. Landmark Cinemas also has something similar, but only every 2nd Tuesday.

 

Ottawa Comiccon:

Emily joined us for 3 days of Comiccon goodness! We were nervous bringing her to the event, as a) she was still only 10wks at the time and b) we weren’t sure how much we would be able to move around on the weekend with the stroller. We like going for the 3 days so that Friday can be spent exclusively walking the market hall with all the vendors. It’s a lower key day, so walking with a stroller is much easier. Additionally, we spend the entire Saturday and Sunday going to the celebrity Q&A panels. Emily was the darling of the Con and she wasn’t even in costume! The staff loved her (and us) so much, that they made sure to come say hi to us and chat with us at the back. We didn’t want to disrupt any of the other guests, so we made it a point to snag the very back seats for all the Q&A’s. Except the special “Ponds and Friend” special; we were front and centre for that one!

Toronto Field Trip Music Festival:

Just this past weekend, Jody and I took Emily on a trip to Toronto for the annual Field Trip Music Festival. We’ve been attending the festival since it’s beginning – 4 years ago – and realized the 1st year how family friendly it was! So many great activities for kids and just a really laid back atmosphere. This was Emily’s first big car trip too, and though she did great on the way down to Toronto, coming home was a whole other experience for the girl who hates car seats. Emily and I attended only on Saturday as Sunday was calling (and had!) massive rains – so much so, the festival closed down for a few hours while they monitored the weather situations in the surrounding area(s).
