James found this wonderfully funny video on College Humor this morning. Just another example of people’s seemingly odd obsession with manbabies. Anyway, I couldn’t help but share it with you. What do you think, would Em fit in?

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

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 …

James and I finally got around to switching the crib out of our bedroom and into the nursery last weekend. It’s funny, most parents-to-be have the nursery set up long before their babies are born, and it took us over seven weeks after Emmett’s birth to get it together. Anyway, our apartment is finally in its final formation – hooray! Here are a few pictures, which I’ll also post under the “Our Place” tab. Notice the cool stickers that form a tree on the wall. My sister, Lauren knew we weren’t planning on painting the nursery since our lease is up in September and we’d have to paint it back anyway, so she gave them to us as a Christmas gift. Thanks, Laur!
And now for a video of a very squirmy Emmett …

On Monday I had my six week postpartum doctor visit, so instead of making James babysit, we decided to make it a family outing. It was snowing, so we bundled Em up in his Eskimo suit (which every adult I’ve met wishes they had – thanks Dolores!) and headed out into the elements.
I wouldn’t have cared so much about bringing Emmett and James along, but I really wanted my doctor to meet the little guy since she didn’t get a chance to visit him while we were still in the hospital. After all, she was the one who made sure Baby Lump was happy and healthy in utero! Once my examination was complete and she cleared me for exercise without restrictions (yay – let the running begin!), she and Emmett had a little photo shoot. What a Kodak moment (too bad he slept through the whole thing). Thanks for everything, Dr. Stagg!
