Wow. I cannot believe I have a spare second. Have I mentioned that I don’t have the world’s greatest napper? I may or may not have put the baby in the carrier and walked her around the house to get her to sleep more than 20 minutes during the day on more than one occasion. And that is not necessarily a sure bet. I had my first “have to leave Target –NOW - moment” on Sunday when a full on meltdown ensued. I am sure the first of many! Culprit of the meltdown – being overly tired. Go figure. Luckily, we are now to the smiling stage in her babyhood, so it makes the lack of naps much better!
Speaking of naps in the carrier, this has been a lifesaver:
Also, you can get it for free (only pay $12.90 in shipping) with the code FAMILY2012. Tommy and I have both agreed it is one of our favorite things. (And Carseat Canopy has no clue who I am!)
I have to share some of the pictures that Addie took of the baby. She is so talented and I am lucky that she has taken these beautiful pictures of Emmy even though she is not doing it as a business anymore. She did an awesome job and the subject is pretty cute, if I do say so myself! I seriously LOVE them!
This was my Christmas card pic:
Her little toes:
Addie also took our family pictures for my mom. Here’s the whole family!
And speaking of photos, I have to share this HILARIOUS photo of my sweet nephew. He was in his uncle’s wedding. Is this not classic??
So with the holiday season upon us, I have had lots of deep thoughts on Jesus being born, especially now that I am a mom. Tommy and I have totally different takes on this. I would love to know what you guys think.
1- I think about Mary and how the angel came to her and told her she was going to have a son. Um, I think Mary had to FREAK out and wonder what everyone was going to think about her. (Maybe that is because that would be my reaction.) Tommy thinks if angels are coming to you, you definitely wouldn’t be freaking out that you are having THE baby Jesus.
2- I have also wondered a lot about what Jesus was like as a baby. Do you think he was fussy? A perfect baby? Do you think he cried? I think he was the most perfect, easy baby who never made a peep and his mother always knew what he wanted. Tommy seems to think he was human and cried.
3- I have also thought about the man who turned Mary away at the inn. From a practical standpoint, I can see that he probably didn’t know that the baby being born was the one that we would be celebrating on December 25th two thousand and twelve years later and how could he kick someone out of a room, so he was being kind to offer the manger. But if I had an inn, what would I do if a pregnant person needed a place to stay – offer her my own room, stay and help her (now that I have physically had a baby – I would know she would need all the help she could get if she was having a baby in my hypothetical inn)? (Another deep thought just came to me – I wonder if Mary was spared the pains of labor and had an “easy” delivery. Yikes. Talk about no meds!) Megan said she would offer the lobby ; ).
Am I the only one who has ever thought of this (please tell me no!!!). I would love to know what you think.
Annnnnd….as mentioned, this post was going to be totally random – but did any of you guys guess who Gossip Girl was????? I am so sad that this era is coming to a close. It has been a great six years, upper east siders.
And this is what goes through my brain on any given day. At least there is still some capacity for thought up in there!
Hope to be back on here soon. Cheers to naps!
You know you love me. XOXO (That reference only makes sense to my Gossip Girl lovers!)
