Emmett's first Christmas was great. We headed up to Maine for Christmas Day with James' family and then back down to Boston to meet my parents and sister for Christmas round two. Needless to say, Emmett got a lot of good loot.

New Year's Eve was pretty quiet. I co-hosted my company's Internet marketing podcast in the afternoon, which was a lot of fun. Then James, Emmett and I spent a relaxing evening at home that included some yummy Thai takeout, a cozy fire, watching the ball drop and drinking champagne at midnight.
Perhaps the coolest development of the past couple of weeks, however, was the fact that Emmett took his first steps (literally fewer than 24 hours after my parents went back to New Jersey after Christmas)! In fact, in less than a week, he's become a real pro. Check out a video of some of his first few steps below ...
Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, I have to focus on my next big project -- Emmett's first birthday party! Considering it's only 2 weeks away and I still have a lot to do to prepare, I should keep myself pretty busy. I'm getting excited though; I just bought some pretty awesome themed decorations online :)
Cheers to 2010 and to more milestones, happiness and love for Baby Lump, and thanks for reading along in '09!
