Memorial Day Weekend

Tag: Emily,Family,Friends,Paul,SeanAndrewEmily @ 1:46 pm

We traveled to St. Louis over Memorial Day Weekend to visit Paul’s family, and to attend Stephen’s wedding (friend of Paul’s). We had a great time and took a ton of pictures!

Still working on getting the wedding pictures online.

See pictures of Sean during the weekend by clicking below:

Sean’s getting so big! Just a few days ago, he started grabbing toys with his hand, then with both hands and then bringing the toy to his mouth. He loves this new skill and tends to hold on to his toys for 5-10 minutes at a time! He also is very talkative lately. He loves when people have “conversations” with him; mimicking the noises that he makes. He cracks up laughing and keeps the conversation going until you stop it. So cute.

I’m going to start getting some videos of Sean, hopefully on a weekly basis, and putting them on our youtube account. He’s doing so many new things each week, and we want everyone to be able to enjoy the milestones along with us. Plus, he’s so darn cute, who could resist a movie of him?? 😉

Day 2

Tag: SeanAndrewEmily @ 8:12 am

Sean did really well for his second day of daycare. His routine was much better (he ate all of each of his bottles instead of just part of them, sleep was more consistent, etc) and they said that he did great. When I got there, he was playing in a bouncy seat. I snuck up on him and got in front of his face. It took him a second to realize I was there, then he got a big smile on his face. It melted my heart 🙂

We went out last night for awhile and didn’t get home until 10pm. He of course passed out around 8 like usual, and when we got home, I fed him a quick bottle, and put him to bed. He them slept until 4:45am again! Yay Sean! I am really liking all this extra sleep and not having to get up at 2am to feed him!

Today he starts “gama daycare” with my mom. I bet he’ll sleep most of the day after being worn out so much at daycare the past two days. We’re also heading to St Louis this evening for the weekend. We’re really excited for his Gramma Narni and everyone there to see him! He’s grown so much since the last time we were there.

We should do this more often…

Tag: SeanAndrewEmily @ 8:13 am

Sean had a great night of sleep last night. He fell asleep around 6 after we got home. We had to wake him up for a bath and bottle around 9 (which he could barely stay awake for), then put him back to bed. He then slept until 4:50 this morning! I couldn’t believe it; what a great night’s sleep! After giving him a bottle at 5am, he snuggled with me until 6:30 when we woke up. I feel really refreshed today after getting such a good night’s rest! Guess daycare really wiped him out! It’ll be interesting to see how he sleeps tonight after going to daycare for his second day.

First day

Tag: Emily,SeanAndrew,WorkEmily @ 9:33 pm

Today was my first day back at work and Sean’s first full day at daycare. My day went well; it was actually kind of nice to get back to “adult land.” I’m not thrilled about starting to actually work again, but it was nice to be back in the work environment and have adult time and discussions.

Sean did really well at daycare today. He took several short naps, one long nap, and drank most of every bottle. The head lady said that he did wonderful. It wasn’t too difficult to leave him this morning; once I put him in their exersaucer, he was good to go and playing like crazy. He was asleep when I picked him up today, but was VERY happy to see his mommy!

When we got home, he had a bottle and PASSED OUT until 9pm when we finally woke him up to give him a bath and bottle and send him to bed. I wonder how long he’ll sleep tonight. Daycare seems to have worn him out!

The only negative to the daycare so far is that he came home smelling like patchouli…bleh. I don’t know what to do about it. Paul and I hate the smell of patchouli, especially on our boy! We had to really scrub him tonight and it didn’t all come off. Wonder if it’ll come out of his clothes easily. I have a feeling it’s one of the owners that wears it so I’m not sure what to do/say. Help?

It’s finally over

Tag: Emily,SeanAndrew,WorkEmily @ 7:19 pm

Well, my 12 week maternity leave is coming to a close this evening. It’s been a crazy journey! Who could have thought that my last few weeks of pregnancy I was saying “I just don’t know what I’m going to do for 12 whole weeks at home…” LOL. Silly (stupid) me! 🙂

Tomorrow I head back to work and Sean will spend his first whole day at daycare. I should have started a poll to see how many cups of coffee I’d need to make it through the day! I’m used to getting at least one big nap per day, sometimes 2-3! I don’t have any idea how I’m going to get up at 6:15a and make it until 5:00p, then get dinner ready and him into bed later, all without a nap! Whew. It scares me to even think about it! 🙂

On a happier note, Sean ALMOST rolled over today! I’ve been practicing with him and he can roll over from his back to his tummy if I flop his legs over for him first. Today, he was playing on his playmat and flopped his legs over by himself! He was laying on his side for awhile and if he had wanted to, he could have flipped himself the rest of the way over. We’ll keep up the practice and try to get a video of him rolling when he does it! What a big boy!

I bit the bullet…

Tag: Computers and ElectronicsPaul C. @ 3:49 pm

And it didn’t explode. I upgraded to the latest wordpress available (2.5.x) and I hope that does it. I guess let me know if you all still see popups. This 2.5 interface on the wordpress backend is *way* different from 2.0.3. Going to take some getting used to.
On the plus side – I can now switch themes without the site falling apart. Excellent.
