You guys, where are the weeks going? I feel like I'm all caught up on one thing and I realize that I am WEEKs behind on others. I guess that is how it goes though, right? We'll figure it out eventually though (maybe).
I've been so focused on my shop lately that I've started to develop some WAHM guilt and by that I mean the guilt is very real. I feel so awful leaving Emmet to play by himself while I work away, but sometimes you just have to get something done right? That is what I am going to tell myself.
Emmet has been getting more and more adorable by the day. Sure, he has his difficult moments, and some days those moments are hours of the day. But most of the time he is cracking me up and making me fall a little bit more in love with him. We go on daily walks to the post office. He runs along behind me in his little winter boots and adorable hat our friend Erin made him. He goes out of his way to walk through piles of leaves or to kick gravel or stand on manhole and drain covers.
He has been practicing eating with plates, bowls, and silverware. It usually ends up all over him, but he is slowly getting better! Today though, Emmet was pulling on his avanchy suction plate to try to pick it up when all of the sudden it popped off of his tray and his macaroni flew in the air and landed all over his head and highchair. It was HILARIOUS. His yogurt and apple sauce usually end up all over him too, but we shrug it off and change his clothes A LOT. It is fun to watch him learn.
He reads to himself all of the time and always asks me to read books to him. His favorites right now are "Dada" by Jimmy Fallon and "Ten Apples Up on Top" by Dr. Seuss. The other night he even sat completely still for the entire "Of Thee I Sing" by Barack Obama and my heart melted. My pregnancy hormones got the best of me as we sat there and snuggled and read together. It made me very happy.
