Emmett on a Boat

The three of us headed up to Maine last weekend for Sara's baby shower.� Sara, with her cute little baby bump, got a lot of good baby loot, and we had a great time hanging out in the beautiful weather on the Maine coast for the weekend.

We also took Emmett out on his first boat ride!� Although I'm pretty sure he wasn't a huge fan of the life jacket we stuffed him into.� Babies have no necks to begin with, and when you put them in a life vest (which makes normal people lose their necks), they lose the lower half of their faces, too.� But man is it ridiculously adorable ...

I also took Emmett to his 6-month checkup yesterday.� He's up to 18 lbs. 3 oz. and 28 inches "tall" now!� We also got the go ahead to start him on fruits and veggies, too!� Applesauce and butternut squash, here we come!

Mr. Independent

The past couple of weeks have been a whirlwind.� We had the Fourth of July (which was a lot of fun - Emmett almost stayed awake through all the fireworks), Gus was born and I've been super busy with work.� I finally got around to taking Emmett with me to HubSpot (the company I work for) one day, too!

Oh yeah, and it's as if because Emmett is 6 months old now (I know, half a year? SO hard to believe!), he thinks he's become Mr. Independent or something.� Our little trick of feeding Emmett with the aid of the Boppy no longer works.� Instead, he wants to try to hold the bottle and feed himself.� I guess he doesn't need me anymore ...

It's official - little Rus Gus has finally made his debut into the world!� The blond Russel Augusten Nutter was born this afternoon, breathing his first fresh breath of air at 2:26 p.m.� That's right, no more swimming around for the little guy.� And I must say, he's quite a handsome little guy at that.� Though Gus was born via an unexpected C section due to his breech position, the operation went smoothly and Adrienne, Mac and the Gusbuster are all happy and well.

Some stats:

Birthday: July 7, 2009

Weight: 7 lbs. 7 oz.� (on 7/7!)

Length: 20.6 inches

Apgar Scores: 8 and 9 (same as Emmett's!)

I'm super excited to be an aunt, and I can tell Emmett is chomping at the bit for his new cousin to be his playmate as well.� Congrats, Mac and A!� Can't wait to meet the little trouble maker :)

Gus Nutter, Come on Down!

In proper Price is Right fashion, my soon-to-be nephew, Gus is "[coming] on down!"� I'm so excited!� My sister, Adrienne had a visit with her obstetrician this afternoon, and she is 1 cm dilated and 75% effaced.� Little Gus is on his way!� She is due July 11, so it could be any day now.� Some cool possibilities for Gus' birthday:

  • July 4 - Adrienne's husband, Mac's birthday, not to mention Independence Day!

  • July 9 - Adrienne and Mac's wedding anniversary (4 years)

  • July 16 - Emmett's half birthday; the cousins would be exactly 6 months apart!


I'm thrilled to be a first time aunt once Gus arrives.� It's so crazy to think that if Gus is born by July 16, I'll be a first time mom and aunt all within 6 months!� Babies, babies, babies!

Enjoy this video (taken a month ago) of Adrienne's nephew, Patrick, engaging in some prenatal care for baby Gus ...

Adrienne and Mac are heading to their friend's wedding this Friday.� Maybe some wedding dancing will induce labor ...
