Our Weekend

On Thursday we got Little Miss all dolled up for her 6 month portraits. I had really hoped she’d be sitting up in time for the shoot but she’s not quite there yet. Luckily we had an awesome photographer who found ways to get adorable pictures anyway. Emerson did great during the whole shoot and the photographer was so kind to let me put her in all kinds of headbands and outfits.  Here’s one of the sneak peaks (sans bow.) I have to say she’s pretty adorable even without a big bow.

And here’s the other one. Look at those sweet blue eyes!

On Friday morning we got up super early to head to the beach for our family photo shoot. We took some in the park and some on the beach.  It was pretty hard to get Emerson to look at the camera because she was so focused on everything around her. It was also her very first time at the beach and she was mesmerized by the waves.  Even so, I think we got some great shots. I am so in love with this sneak peak:


Thanks so much to our wonderful photographer Jill. You can check out her website here.

On Friday evening we went for a walk at the boardwalk near our house. The weather was gorgeous and Emerson seemed to love the ride in the jogging stroller. We’ve used it almost every day since we got it so I think it’s safe to say that it was a wise purchase. Smile

On Saturday morning we got up early and did the dreaded grocery run. I have come to hate shopping for groceries just because it’s such an ordeal to actually get to the store. The one we shop at is in the mall (most are) and it’s on the 3rd floor. I’m worn out by the time we park in the parking garage, get Emerson and her gear unloaded, and go up 3 sets of escalators. This time wasn’t too bad though because we stopped at DD on the way. Dunkin coffee makes anything better. It was also the first time I used the Ergo carrier at the grocery store. I’ve put her in it at the mall a few times but never for grocery shopping. She did great in it and actually fell asleep. It was much easier than pushing the stroller around the store so we will probably do that again.

We headed to the pool in the afternoon. We are super lucky to have a membership at a beach club (at no cost to us) and yesterday was the first day we used it. It was pretty empty yesterday so we practically had the place to ourselves.


It was so relaxing to just hang out by the pool. Of course, Emerson and Daddy did some swimming too.



She has just discovered how to splash and couldn’t get enough- even when  the water was going right in her face.


After her swim, she was worn out so she took a little nap while we relaxed.


We had a really nice time and have decided that we will start taking full of advantage of our membership. It’s just too nice not to. I’m thinking I might even start going during the week. There’s nothing better than hanging out at the beach or the pool with a good book and a sweet baby. Smile

So- that was our weekend. We didn’t do anything too exciting yet it was absolutely perfect. Don’t you just love weekends like that?
