Dear Emma


I can’t believe that you will be 4 months old tomorrow. You have grown so much just in the last month, my love. Unlike your mom or dad, you are very tall and no longer fit in the top of your pack ‘n play. You love to hold hands with us while you eat (and boy do you love to eat!). So far you have tried baby cereal, bananas, and sweet potatoes and have loved them all. You have started to try to hold your bottle yourself as well as help us hold your spoon when we feed you. Last month you went out to a restaurant for the first time and have been out for several meals since then (although I’m not sure you remember since you slept through all of them).  

You only nap once in a while but when you do, you prefer complete silence from everyone around you. If someone does make noise (even a slurp from a straw or a wrinkle of a wrapper), you will often throw both your hands up in the air and shake your head as if to say can’t you see I’m taking a nap here??!! 😂 (You obviously get that attitude from your father.) 😉

You laugh every time mom or dad ask you if you have poopie in your diaper (we don’t always laugh as much as you when the answer is yes). 😂

For the most part, you sleep through the night most days. We put you down to sleep around 11 PM and you usually sleep until we wake you up at 5:30 AM to get ready for daycare and work. You wake up happy and just hang out while we get your bottle ready – smiling and “talking” to us. You love to talk all the time and tell us all kinds of things. I think you love to hear your voice just as much as we do. 

You are a very happy baby and generally only get fussy when it is time to eat (I totally understand, girlfriend!). You smile and laugh all the time. You FaceTime with Aunt Amy pretty much every day and love your weekly visits with her. You think it is hilarious when she looks in your mouth and asks you where your toothies are. You are also a big fan of Uncle Nicky and like to have him feed you, to practice tummy time on his chest, and have him take you for walks around the house. Grandma comes to see you at least once a week as well and you have her wrapped around your finger just like everyone else.

I could write books about you, but will end it here for now. When you were first born, your dad and I would just stare at you and say to each other how did we make something THIS cute? Four months later, we are just as mesmerized by you.

We love you so much, Emma Bobbi.

Happy 4 months, beautiful girl. ❤❤

Is anyone still out there?

I am not sure how many people still read this little blog of mine since my posts are few and far between, but if there are still some of you out there, HI!! I think of my blog often and want to blog more but then work, taking care of a house, and life with a newborn don’t leave too much time to do that.

For those of you that have followed me over the last few years, you know that Bosco was our world and his loss absolutely devastated Pat and I.


Today would have actually been his 12th Birthday. I still miss him more than words can say and will until the day I die. I will forever be thankful for the 11 years we spent with him though. He was our first baby and will always have a huge piece of my heart.

Pat and I celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary on May 20.


We didn’t do much to celebrate because #lifewithanewborn but it was still a great day. 🙂

Speaking of my newborn, can you believe she is already 3 months old? Emma is becoming more and more of her own little person with such a cute personality every day. She goes to daycare 3 days / week and I work from home the other 2 day.  She had her 3 month Dr. visit last week and did great – she is close to 15 lbs. already and we started her on some baby cereal last weekend. She LOVED it the first time but was less excited about it the other times we tried to feed her some. It is still early so we will work on it.



Pat and I just look at her in awe and say how did we make something THIS cute??!!

As for the house, we are still doing little improvements here and there to make it ours. We just had new carpet installed in a few rooms this past week.


Pat also has a new obsession – our pool.  I am not kidding when I say he is obsessed! haha He never had a pool before (I did growing up, but just an above ground one.) and it was an absolute requirement for him when we were looking at houses. The house had to have an inground pool or at least have a backyard large enough to put one in.


He goes outside to “check on it” first thing in the morning and again after he gets home from work. I have also never seen him so excited to clean something before (now I just have to figure out how to get him to clean the inside of the house! haha).

Well, I have a baby that is waiting to eat (again!), so I will talk to you all soon! 🙂

What is new with YOU??
