  • 10 months old

    What a fun little guy we have. I remember thinking at one point there was no way I could love another child as much as I love Theo. But everyone told me your heart makes room and grows for more children and they were totally right. Emmett is the perfect addition to our family and… Continue reading 10 months old

  • 9 months old

    Can we really be getting that close to a year old? Time is so non-linear when your baby has two ages and you vacillate between viewing him as a nine month-old (because that’s what he is, and he’s been in your life for nine months) and a six month-old (because he looks and acts like… Continue reading 9 months old

  • 8 months old

    How do we have an eight month-old? It truly does not seem possible. We’ve had kind of a rough month, with Emmett being constantly sick. In the past six weeks he’s had bronchiolitis, three ear infections, and been to the doctor seven (yes, seven) times. He’s been tested for RSV, influenza and pertussis (whooping cough).… Continue reading 8 months old

  • 7 months old

    True to form, this seven-month update is closer to his eight-month birthday. But at least the photo was taken at exactly seven months. Time is flying and this little man has become such an important part of our lives. I’m so proud of him and how far he’s come. Adjusted age: 4 months Stats: 13.4… Continue reading 7 months old

  • 6 months old

    It’s hard to believe half a year has passed already. By this time with Theo it felt like he’d been in our lives forever. But since we only got to take E home three months ago, he still feels pretty new. I remember when he was born, I tried to adopt an optimistic outlook about his… Continue reading 6 months old

    Time is flying. This will be the last monthly post I write while on maternity leave, as I return to work on Monday. I know it’s time to get back to the real world, but it’s going to be hard to leave my boys again, after getting used to spending every day with them. At… Continue reading 5 months old

  • Why? 

    Theo has entered the why phase and it may be the death of me. Why did you go that way? Why did you say that? Why is that man sitting there? Why does that duck have feet??? The questions never end and are often so obscure I have no idea how to even answer them.… Continue reading Why?

  • 4 months old

    I had drafted the following post weeks ago – on his actual 4 month birthday- but never got around to finishing it until now. You could say life has been a little busy.  I can’t even describe how good it feels to be writing this update from home. I know I keep saying this, but… Continue reading 4 months old

  • Bless you!

    I really need to do a better job writing down the funny things Theo says. Just recently he started using “bless you” as a verb for sneezing — i.e., I just blessyoued. It’s so cute I don’t have the heart to correct him.

  • Hello? Is this thing on? We’ve been home now for about a week and a half and things are going well. I’ve had a lot of people tell me they miss the daily Emmett posts so I thought I’d give a quick update on how things are going. I definitely don’t plan to blog every… Continue reading Meanwhile, back at the ranch…
