Little Swimmer

August 9, 2010 1 comment

Admittedly, a lot of my free time lately has been taken up by wedding planning (awesome for me, not so great for my blog readers).  I’m sure any mom understands this, but having a kid (or kids) makes it extremely difficult to find time to do everything you wish you could.  Luckily, I’ve been able to motivate myself to squeeze running into my schedule (I used to be a pretty dedicated runner before I got pregnant), and as I said, with the wedding planning, unfortunately my blog has taken a back seat.  Not that I’m going to convert my blog into a place for wedding chatter in any sense, but for those interested, the wedding planning is going along quite swimmingly. We have the venue, the date, the officiant, a wedding website and I even found the dress!

I’ve partially justified my lack of blogging by the fact that Emmett isn’t hitting the milestones as freqently as he did as a baby.  Still, there have definitely been some developments:

  1. He’s been all about the babbling for quite some time, but he has also been slightly behind on his vocabulary.  Lately though, he’s really been excelling on the talking front. He can now say hi, bye, dad, one, two, blue, choo choo, ball, wow, wee and eye.  Am I forgetting anything, James?
  2. He’s developing quite a little sense of humor.   He fakes sneezes when we sneeze, and he’s just a goofball in general.
  3. He loves to dance. Like — loves it.  He dances whether or not there’s music, and I’m pretty sure he’s already a better dancer than I am.  This kid’s got moves.  I can’t wait to catch him on video.
  4. He now weighs about 28 lbs, and he’s half an inch shy of 3 feet tall.
  5. He likes to swim.  We’ve been taking parent-toddler swim classes at the Fitness and Recreation Center at Boston University, and he’s definitely a fan.

Also, can you believe Emmett is already a year and a half old?  It’s unreal …

Emmett Rocks Tummy Time & Meets the Fam

March 27, 2009 1 comment

As I mentioned yesterday, Emmett met a lot of his extended family members last week in Pennsylvania.  He also did a little bit of dancing (in his brand new Converse sneakers, just like dad’s!) …

We even learned that Em has an alien in his chest.  The alien emerges whenever Emmett has the hiccups …

Finally, Emmett showed off to the family by performing his best session of tummy time yet!

I think it’s safe to say the little guy made a pretty good first impression 🙂
