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!
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.
Emmett: 17 months, 3 weeks
Gus: 1 YEAR!
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!
Age Timer: 1 Year!
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!).
