This weekend was filled with sporting events and family time; my two favorite ways to spend Fall days.
My cousin, Mia, had a hockey tournament at Harvard so she stayed with us for the weekend. We shuttled her to and from her games, watched her play and on Saturday we even took advantage of having a babysitter around and went for a mommy/daddy run for the first time.
I thought for sure we would have a crying baby when we got home, but Mia and Emerson were happy and playing on the couch. Mia didn’t even have to use the bottle I left…granted we were only gone for a 30 minutes but it felt like forever to me!
After our run, we brought Mia to her game and stayed to watch. Emerson loved watching the Zamboni clean the ice and she totally followed the hockey players as they skated up and down the ice during the game. Emerson has quickly started to become more aware of her toys, people and objects. I feel like it happened overnight but now she is much more aware of what is going on around her and follows things that she is interested in.
On Sunday, my sister, Lily, had a Lacrosse tournament at Harvard. It was a total coincidence that both Lily and Mia had games at Harvard but it made it very convenient to watch both of them play. The weather was absolutely perfect too. The air was crisp but the sun was shining. Emerson was bundled up warm in my dad’s arms wearing her Patagonia vest and ski hat.
In very exciting news, Emerson surprised us all and rolled over! I was showing my dad how strong her neck was getting and how she was starting to like tummy time and she literally just rolled right over to her back. It was incredible! We all looked at each other in shock 😳. She’s since rolled over a few more times. Always from her stomach to her back, never back to stomach. She’s starting to hit some of the bigger milestones. I can’t believe how fast it’s all happening.
To top off the weekend, we celebrated my moms birthday with some crock pit pulled pork and homemade funfetti. It was delicious.
One of these days I’m going to start eating well so I lose this darn baby weight!
