A Little Bit of This and That

Is it just me, or do weekends go by way too fast? I feel like this one flew by!

On Thursday night I got together with one of my girlfriends for a little belated birthday celebration. We met at this amazing rooftop lounge and hung out and relaxed for a couple of hours. Emerson stayed home with Jesse. I had an awesome time and especially loved the stunning views.

Even though I had a lot of fun, I was so happy to get home to my baby girl. Jesse said she was looking around for me the whole time. Melt.my.heart!

On Friday evening we went to the same hotel for a family event they were holding. They had bouncers and games for the kids and yummy food and drinks for the adults. Emerson had a good time watching all of the people even though she couldn’t really participate in any of the fun. It makes me so happy that she is such a laid-back baby. We were there for about 5 hours and she was so sweet the whole time.


Oh how I love this little girl!

On Saturday we went to the pool and the beach. Emerson was obsessed with the sand and wanted to get as close as possible to it. Every time I tried to take her picture she would lean over and stick her hands in the sand.

I think we might have a little beach baby on our hands!

As usual, she had so much fun in the pool. She was kicking and splashing up a storm.



I just can’t over how beautiful the weather is now! It has actually cooled down enough that they have to heat the pools. It’s warm when you’re in but it’s pretty chilly when you get out. E’s little lips were chattering as soon as she was out of the water but she was fine once I dried her off and got her dressed. All that swimming wore her out and she took a quick nap in her stroller while we lounged around and read magazines. It was so nice!

Since Sunday is considered our Monday, Jesse went to work and E and I stayed home all day. I let her hang out in her pajamas while I cleaned and organized. I finally bit the bullet and packed up some of her smaller clothes.  Even though she can still fit in some of it I feel like she has gotten good use out of everything and I wanted to make room for some new stuff.  I also finally bought some bins so that I can get my craft/sewing room organized. We’ll see if it gets done this week. Smile

In other E news, I’m excited to say that we have a (low) crawler! She started pushing herself around with one leg on Thursday and it has developed into a full-on low crawl. She’s getting pretty fast and I have a feeling she’ll be up on her knees crawling very soon.  Here’s a little video from today- sorry it’s kind of long- I don’t feel like editing it. She is obsessed with anything that crinkles including the baby wipes container.

She has also started screaming when she is excited. It’s pretty darn cute, if you ask me. Then again, I think everything she does is cute.

Sounds like the perfect weekend. I love that last picture of E in front of the tree, so adorable!!

Andrea said...

Loving her Christmas outfit! It seems like at least once a month I am packing up her too-small clothes. Breaks my heart! You will be even busier than you were before now that she's crawling! I hardly ever sit down for more than 30 seconds, but it's soo worth it! Oh, and the squealing when she's happy, that is too cute!

Kelly said...
