That's right - ferocious.� Or maybe just adorable.� Either way, Emmett's costume is awesome.� Too bad he's a little young for trick-or-treating and we have no place to show it off.� I'm actually thinking of taking him to the supermarket today for some grocery shopping, because at least some people will be able to see him costumed in person.� That is, if he can tolerate being in it for more than 5 minutes (the current record).

For mischeif night last night, I carved a pumpkin, toasted the seeds (which are DELICIOUS) and James built our first fire in the apartment's fireplace.� Needless to say it was a nice little fall evening.� I'm also pretty darn proud of how well my jackolantern came out.� It's an owl!

In past news, Emmett had his 9-month checkup the other week.� He was a super champ through the bloodwork.� He didn't even make a peep -� it was incredible - though he wailed when they gave him his shots.� He's now a whopping 20 lbs. 4 oz. (46th percentile) and 30.5 inches "tall" (97th percentile).� Again, one of the tallest kids in his class!

We� had a couple of fun visits this past week.� My best friend Niki stayed with us last weekend, and we had a visit from my good friend, Lauren, from high school last Wednesday.� More aunts for Emmett!

I'm also convinced that Emmett is extremely close to saying "mamma."� In fact, it sounds like he's already saying it (although he might not exactly know what he's saying)!� Check out this video for evidence.� What do you think?

Well, I'm alone again.� Sans boys.� I don't think I've mentioned this yet, but for the entire month of June (and maybe even the first week of July), James and Emmett will be spending every Wednesday night to Friday night in Maine.� James is working for his parents' business, Creative Cottages, and since I have a weekly work meeting every Friday, Emmett has to go with him.

Last week was the first week they went.� It was the first night I spent away from Emmett, and while it was nice to have some time to myself (I got a LOT of work done and was able to go to a Tweetup!),� it still felt strange to be alone, and I missed both of them terribly.� To keep myself occupied, I've made an extensive list of things I want to get done while they're away in June, which includes a ton of magazine-reading, plenty of baths and pedicures and some online shopping.

Other than that, things are going very well.� Emmett grows more and more everyday.� And all he wants to do is stand up.� Seriously, this kid is totally dying to be mobile.� Last weekend we enjoyed another lovely visit from my parents.� We went for a stroll around BU's campus on Saturday, and on Sunday headed over to the Charles for the Dragon Boat Festival.� James and I were also able to go on a date on Saturday night - we saw Angels and Demons (it was awesome!) and hung out with friends.

Hope you enjoyed the update.� Gotta get back to my magazine reading!
