11 Months Old and a Hair Cut

Emmett is 11 months old.  In one short month he will be a one year old and for some reason that is really hard to believe.  I look at photos of him from when he was a new born and it is actually hard to recognize that baby anymore.  I can still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday and when I really think about it I still get teared up about how special that day was.  
As much as I loved him as a new born I enjoy him more and more everyday!  And as he grows and develops his own personality and individual qualities I love him more and more.  I know that what goes into making a person who they are has a lot to do with how they are raised, but I am finding it very interesting that he also has his own traits that were never taught to him that are all his own.

  • He is very cautious 
  • When he is done eating he will let you know by throwing everything on the floor
  • He likes to run 
  • He will be an early talker because he already has a lot to say
  • He doesn't cry very often, even when he slams his fingers in the drawers 
  • His newest trick is clapping! Sometimes he will clap at the funniest things
  • He loves the remote control! When he gets it he quickly pushes every button!
  • He loves books!  I was shocked cause for the first 6 months I had to force reading 
  • Yesterday he got his first real professional hair cut and he was so good.






 Make sure you stop by the blog tomorrow!  There will be a big giveaway going on all week long.

Lately

Lately we have just been hanging out at home, well I guess I should say Emmett has been staying home.  He has been sick for a week now!  Coughing and sneezing all over the place.  Thank goodness he is finally starting to get better.  Luckily my mom was able to watch him one of the days I had plans and Grant and I have been taking turns on the weekend to watch him while the other went out and did what we had planned.  When kids get sick its sad because they don't know what is going on.

Improv in Brea

Last night we went to the Improv and saw David Spade and Kevin Farley opened for him.
I could not believe we got to see Kevin Farley!  My all time favorite movie growing up was Tommy Boy.  It was fun to get away for the night and laugh.  I was surprised by David Spade's act because I had no idea what to expect.  I was imagining he would be a little more animated because that's how he is in the movies I have seen.  It almost seemed like he was trying out some new material on us, everything was funny, but of course some bits were funnier than others.  Kevin Farley was hysterical, I felt like I was watching Chris Farley because they look so much alike.  I just kept wondering why Kevin Farley is not more known.

Such a fun night I am so happy I went!
