Daddy’s First Father’s Day

June 24, 2009 1 comment

James had his first Father’s Day last Sunday, so of course I did a successful job of teasing him by wrapping his presents and displaying them on the kitchen table the Wednesday before.  I know — evil.  To be fair, there were three gifts, and I let him open one each day starting on Friday.  Father’s Day itself was fun.  We indulged James’ craving for KFC, then later went out to dinner to Charley’s with his parents who were in town to help James’ step sister move.

Overall, I think James enjoyed his first Father’s Day.  I bet he’ll love it even more as the years go by and Emmett actually understands what’s going on 🙂

Baby Mashup

February 20, 2009 3 comments

My sister, Adrienne was right.  Emmett does look a lot like I did when I was a baby.  While most of my baby pictures apparently are in slide format (my dad owned his own slidemaking business back in the day before computers and PowerPoint took over the world), my parents were able to dig up a picture of a five week old me, the same age Emmett is right now!

So though we originally thought Emmett was a spitting image of his dad, it looks like he’s actually a pretty equal mashup of the two of us (depending on his facial expression, it seems) …

He Takes After His Dad

February 3, 2009 5 comments

Physically, so far it seems like Emmett is totally his dad’s son – he’s stinky (hehe just kidding – sort of), he talks/gurgles in his sleep, his feet are ginormous and he’s long and lanky.  Well, I guess I was always kind of long and lanky, too.

Still, it wasn’t until James’ mom (Grandma Lucy) brought over some of James’ baby pictures that we realized how striking a resemblance Em bears to his father …

Apparently James was very scrunchy all the time.  Here’s an equally scrunchy picture of Emmett for comparison …

Seriously – when I first glanced at the photos,  I thought Lucy had already developed some of Emmett’s pictures.  Now we know where that chin dimple came from.

Emmett may look more like James than he does me, but it’s still too soon to tell whose personality he’ll take after.  Will he be a soccer star or a lacrosse dude?  A writer or a history buff?  Maybe he’ll just get the best of both worlds 🙂
