Mr. Bones - Year 3/Age 2


Every October since Emerick has been here, we have taken a snapshot of Auntie Samantha and Emerick wearing a skeleton outfit. Since she was here visiting this month, and we know she won't be here this October, we had to get this years shot a couple of months early. The first shot was taken when Emerick was 25 days old, the second one at 1 year, and now this one just a couple of months shy of his second birthday. I love to see the progress, Emerick has changed SO much!

"To infinity...and beyond!"


Emerick has recently become completely obsessed with "Toy Story". He plays with his Buzz and Woody toys more than he does his cars (which he does still play with everyday). He knows that we can watch "Toy Story" on a desktop computer, laptop, cell phone, etc...so he is constantly asking to watch "Oy Soy" and bringing you your phone, or laptop if they are within his reach. My favorite thing is when he flies his buzz toy around the room and says "To infinity and beyond", which sounds more like "duhnitity eeeeyon!" It is the cutest thing on earth.


So tonight we bought him these buzz lightyear jammies, and we are going to try the Pull Ups overnights, instead of the Huggies overnight diapers, since the Pull Ups have Toy Story on them. That was the easiest time we have had putting a diaper on in a while. It has become a tantrum every time we have to change a diaper, which is so frustrating.

Medieval Times

My sister Samantha and her boyfriend Peter were in town for the last week and a half, and we had lots of fun. Emerick loves both his Auntie Mantha, and Peter (whom he became bff with!)

Saturday July 24th was my sister's birthday, and we all went to Medieval Times. It was lots of fun, and a place I have always wanted to go. Watching Emerick was priceless. When the show started Samantha was holding him, and he was scared. He buried his head into her arms for a few minutes. After that, he was fine. He watched the show intensely, and repeated his favorite phrase over and over "OH WOW!"

He also enjoyed watching "Toy Story" during the show on Samantha's iPhone (obsessed with "Toy Story"), and taking Peter's hat on and off of his head over and over again (Sorry Peter)

Some pics...














































































































































































Ate our entire meal with our fingers...

handsome monster

I know I have said it before, but it is soo hard to get any decent photos of Emerick, even more so as he gets older. He is a tough one, or maybe it is just because he is mine. I need to get an official 2 year photo to use for his birthday invitation. Hopefully the plan to meet up with a friend/local photographer to do a photo session swap will work out! Maybe she will have better luck with my little monster!

Fourth of July Fun


I didn't take a ton of pictures this 4th of July, but here are a few. On Saturday the 3rd, we went to a BBQ (or cookout as you East Coast people say!) at Jessie and Aaron's, then went and watched the Red Lion Fireworks. Emerick loved all of the fire trucks in the area more than the fireworks, but he loved every bit of it. Mostly spending the evening with his cousin's Grace and Aaron!






















On Sunday the 4th, we had ice cream at Broom's Bloom with Mom Mom & Danny. That place is so pretty in the evening. After ice cream Emerick got to run around, and then we headed to the Bel Air fireworks show.































We had a great time, and Emerick loved every bit of it. :-)

21 Months


It is so crazy 3 months from today we will be celebrating Emerick's 2nd birthday! Where does the time go? I will ask myself that question for the rest of my life! That - and, where has my baby gone?!


Emerick is about 34 inches tall, and if our scale is correct he has lost some weight, and weighs about 27 lbs. I thought he looked like he had lost some, he looks much taller and thinner to me these days. His buddah belly is still evident although it is actually much smaller believe it or not! He went from 2T clothes, to 3T literally over a period of two days.
