Happy Birthday to the Gusbuster!

July 7, 2010 Leave a comment

Today my awesome little nephew, Gus turned 1!  I just got back from spending a few days in Michigan visiting my family and celebrating his birthday, as well as my brother-in-law’s birthday and the 4th of July in an all-in-one extravaganza.  Needless to say, my sister the event designer made sure it was fabulous!

1 Year Old Gus!

Emmett had some reservations about Gus at first, but in the end, I think he warmed up to him.   Here are a few shots of the birthday boy and the awesome weekend.

Happy First Birthday, Baby Lump!

January 16, 2010 5 comments

I have a million things to do to finish getting ready for Emmett’s party today, but I couldn’t leave his first birthday without a post on the blog, so here’s a quickie…

I’m going to be completely trite here and just say it — man, does time fly!  Exactly a year ago today I was being admitted to my hospital room at MGH in excruciating pain, waiting to welcome my little baby lump into the world (at 11:47 a.m.), and now he’s a whole year old!  Happy Birthday, Emmett!

I spent most of last weekend putting together Emmett’s baby book (yes — an actual book, with pages), which meant I spent a lot of time reviewing Emmett’s major milestones within the past year, mainly through pictures.  While I realized I have about a googolplex’s worth of photos of Emmett, James and I both agreed that the following is one of our favorites (he’s about 9 months here).  And feel free to leave some Happy Birthday wishes for Em in the comments.  It’s been an awesome year!

Stay tuned early next week for a birthday recap.  I’m assuming there will be tons of messy cake pictures to enjoy!

A Shower for Adrienne and Gus

March 26, 2009 1 comment

So much to blog about!  It’s been a busy past couple weeks – a visit from my sister, Adrienne and my brother-in-law, Mac; a trip with Emmett to New Jersey for Adrienne’s baby shower; and Emmett’s first run-in with the extended family – second cousins, great aunts and uncles, great grandparents.  Plus, I’m back to work.  Rather than overwhelming you with the past couple weeks’ events in one long post, I’ll plan on a series of posts in the next few days.

Last Saturday we had Adrienne’s baby shower.  We went with a spa theme, complete with candles, a hand scrub, peppermint soaked washcloths, a cool spoon eye treatment and soothing, spa-like music.  Everyone had a great time, and Adrienne was showered with some great gifts for Baby Gus (and some gifts to pamper herself as well!).

Check out some of the day’s events in pictures …
