Emmett spent last weekend up in Maine with Gran Lucy and Grandpa Mac to give James and I some time alone to celebrate our 2-year (dating) anniversary.� While it was fun to do some adult things like go out to dinner in Harvard Square, have intelligent conversation and see a movie at the theater, I'm not gonna lie - I missed the little goober.

Of course he just had to do some growing while we were away.� Lucy noticed a budding tooth in the front, top row of his gums while he was in her custody, which has without a doubt contributed to his crankiness this week.� Luckily though, Lucy also came up with what I'm calling the apple remedy: a semi-peeled apple for Emmett to chew on, which really does the trick.�� It keeps him occupied, and it feels good on his gums.� A lifesaver!� Check out the apple remedy in action:

In other news, it's my sister's (Aunt Adrienne) birthday today.� Happy Birthday, A!

At my Boston baby shower last year, I could've sworn I'd already nailed down Baby Lump's first Halloween costume (pictured here - a gift from Lindsay, Maggie and Julie).� Turns out I was slighly off at estimating how big Emmett would be at his first Halloween.� I tried Emmett's monkey suit on him last night, and well, you can see for yourself how funny he looks.� It fits him perfectly now, but I doubt I'll be able to squeeze him into it in a month... (Can you spot the toofers?)

Don't worry, I have a few other Halloween costume ideas up my sleeve, and they're all as equally adorable as the monkey suit (if not more adorable).
