first weeks

emerick is growing sooo fast. he is nearly 1 and a half years old. he learns something new everyday, does something new everyday, says something new everyday. i love him so much, i don't even know how to begin to describe the feeling, it really is a feeling only a mom can know.

i can't sleep tonight, and so I dug out all of my CDs full of .jpegs from Emerick's first weeks of life, trying to remember what he was like those first days. I found some photos that were never edited, photos that I had just looked over. so here are some old photos turned new. enjoy.

Emerick's bracelet

My Mom keeps complaining that I don't blog enough, that it has been over a week since my last blog post, so I figured I would blog something that I have wanted to blog for quite sometime. I know this is going to make you crazy Mom! (and especially Samantha & Megan)

When James and I were married in 2006, there is one thing we knew for sure - we wanted kids. We often talked about our future children, referring to them by the names we had already chosen. We talked about our first born, always referring to him as a boy named Emerick. We loved him before he was even conceived, and when we found out we were having a boy, it was really no surprise. Of course we were having a boy, the little boy named Emerick that we had talked about for all of those years, was finally on his way.

On our honeymoon, we had an adorable little bracelet made for the boy we hoped to have in the future. A mexican on the streets of Ensenada made the bracelet pictured below. We also had him make one for the little girl we hoped, and still hope will join our family in the future. A baby girl whose name will remain a secret to everyone but James and I, until the day she is (hopefully/maybe) here.

chit chat

It seems like every day Emerick repeats a new word! He will be speaking (more than two word!) sentences before we know it. This means we are really trying to make an effort to watch our potty mouths ;-)

Emerick also turned 16 months old yesterday. I find it really hard to think of fun and active things to do with him when it is so cold outside. We have taken him to Barnes and Noble several times lately and he just loves it. He loves books, so we just let him explore the kid area, and read books off the shelves. They also have a Thomas the Train set, that he of course loves.

Some of Emerick's new words:

night night (nye nye)
ouch (oww)

Emerick must notice that his Daddy sits in his iJoy massage chair a lot. Yesterday he climbed up in the chair, and said "I Dada" and then laughed his little laugh that he does when he thinks he is being really funny. He is turning into such a little character!
