Baby Book

When we first brought Emmett home from the hospital, we realized that we didn’t have some of the things that would be most helpful for a 4 day old baby so Seamus went out to buy what we needed. One of his stops was at Target, where he found THE most perfect memory book for Emmett. It’s a “just one you” brand by Carter’s, here’s a similar version since they don’t seem to be making the monkey one any longer but I did find the same version on Amazon.

baby-bookIn keeping up with this blog and other life events, I just haven’t had the time to fill out the baby book. Obviously I don’t want to forget any little detail because I’d love to eventually have it completed for E baby, so I’m going to use the different “fill in the blank” sections as prompts for some blog posts. Then I can always print out the post and paste it in his book when I find time and I won’t have forgotten anything.

The Day of Our Engagement

The Day of Our Engagement

The very first prompt is, “all about mommy and daddy,” “how mommy and daddy met.” Well my sweet boy, your momma and daddy met in a rather nontraditional way, we met through Match.com. Momma had joined for only a month, to see who was online with maybe the possibility of a few dates but nothing serious happened in the first 30 days. The day AFTER my membership ended I received an email from someone, who in his pictures was handsome and whose profile was interesting, so I rejoined for another month so that I could see his full email and get his contact information. Your dad and I emailed back and forth for a couple of weeks and spoke on the phone to get to know one another and eventually met in person. We were both pretty smitten with one another right off the bat and spent a lot of our first date talking and flirting.  Momma spent a good chunk of the date talking about which vegetables she likes cooked and which vegetables she likes uncooked. Super exciting, right!? 😉 Your dad still picks on me about it to this day but it’s all good natured fun.

I really enjoy telling the story of how we met, so when you’re older I’ll tell it to you in more detail.

Weekend Recap

It was a pretty good weekend in our household!

Before Emmett was born, Seamus and I would go for dinner every Friday night, it was our “date” night.  Since Emmett’s come around we haven’t been able to get out much for dinners because that tends to be the “witching” hour for E, meaning he starts going crazy and crying. We’ve had to adjust our plans and have been ordering in instead. It works out because by the time Seamus gets home from work I’m pretty pooped out and not really in the mood to get dressed (in something nicer than sweats or yoga pants). This Friday we did yummy steak pizza from Just Pizza. One of my FAVORITE local pizza places!

We spent some time watching TV and then Seamus went to play WoW and I messed around on the computer. Nothing exciting but I kind of like it that way lately.

Saturday was some bumming around where this cuteness happened…

and then this…

We were at Target getting some things for him and other stuff for us and he was just being so unbelievably happy and adorable. I couldn’t take it! I wanted to take him out of his car seat and snuggle him but knew as soon as I did that he wouldn’t go back in without a fight so I left well enough alone.

Sunday we pretty much didn’t leave the house. I went to the JCC for a tour and came right back home, it was nice to be completely lazy. We did watch some of the Bills game, where they lost horribly to the Patriots, but other than that we didn’t do anything.

Later in the evening Emmett was being Mr. Cutie again so I snapped another adorable pic.

He’s really taken to wanting to be very independent! He loves to just lay on a blanket or under his baby gym and look at the toys or the things around him. I usually just lay next to him and chat while he plays, I just love watching him change each day.

How was everyone else’s weekend? Anyone do anything more productive than me?
