Must remember the cuteness

This little guy:

He went with mommy and this other little guy (and his mom)

For a leisurely stroll at Two Rivers today. A couple of supremely cute things happened that I just want to remember.
A sweet older couple came spryly walking up to us and doting over our precious bundles. Like them already. I had torn up a sandwich onto E’s little stroller tray thingy (I’m good with words I know), and the older man says “Mmmmm that sure does look good, can I have some?” I chuckled and said “can you give him a bite?”. Emerson graciously and enthusiastically reached up with a bite of sandwich for him. I knew he would and thought we’d all giggle and move on. Nope. Next thing I know my son is feeding this man a bite and laughing. Yep. he put it in his mouth. Oh my word. We just died laughing, partly at the cuteness of Emerson and partly at the shock of what just occurred. The sweet, precious man said, “I just had to see what he’d do!”. Ahahaha. He and his wife then went to Shane (other bambino) and oogled over him for a good bit.
Thank you precious couple for that sweet and surprising memory.
After this we walked and walked. After a while I looked down and Emerson had fallen asleep with his head on his tray, half in his sandwich. I tried to snap a pic but the little bugger woke right up. Too sweet.
I am forever blessed to have these sweet memories with such a sweet boy.

terrific twosome takes a trip

Terrific twosome: Emerson and myself.

We took a trip! A 6 hour drive in the car by ourselves kind of trip! Crazy? Kinda. But it was great!

all ready to hit the road!

Daddy Sauer went on yet another (but almost the last one) trip to Chicago to take a class for his masters degree (he’s almost done! whoot!). These trips are SIX DAY TRIPS! What’s a momma to do!? A couple times E and I have just stayed home ad most of those times he has gotten sick and the weeks have been LONNNNG. I have tremendous respect for single mommies who are the solo parent 24/7. It’s tough even for just a week! I also have a new found gratefulness for all that Adam does when he is home. By the end of the week I’m usually sporting the jammies and a spit up shirt. :/ That’s the real deal folks. I wasn’t about to do it again. I FOR SURE wasn’t having a sick child again either so poor baby E was basically quarunteened for the week and a half before we left. No nursery, no play time, NO CHILDREN. I also decided we would mosey on over to Oklahoma to see friends and family for the week.

The road trip (6 hours in the car) was my biggest fear for the week…and we had to do it twice! yikes! To my surprise E did amazing! Aside from one very sad 30 minutes of wailing for a “ba-ba” and being unable to stop because we weren’t near anything, he did not shed a tear. He took a couple of naps and each time he woke up he gazed at his beautiful self in his mirror and played! What a relief! I strongly recommend one of those mirrors for the car and a variety of toys to switch out. Also, we planned a half way “long” lunch lunch so he could stretch out a little. It was great! The way back was equally calm and wonderful!

The week itself was awesome. We saw family and friends. Emerson met a his great-grandma for the first time and a couple other baby friends. Mommy got a haircut because my best haircuts are always by Oklahoma gals! E and I bunked up in a room at my mom and step-dad’s house and got to spend some great quality time with my brother and fam. My mom was SUCH a help with Emerson. I was scattered without everything in proper place so having some assistance was a great GREAT thing. My brother is always super sweet to Emerson and plays with him more than most 10 year olds would. Too cute. ย Emerson saw the Okc zoo with some friends…love LR but the Okc zoo is SOOO much better. Not that we will ever pass up the zoo!

formal greetings ๐Ÿ˜‰

at the zoo with his buds

he definitely saw this animal! and then cried a little..

...i guess it was too much for both of them...don't make eye contact...

mommies and boys ... around their age when we met ๐Ÿ™‚

hanging with Nene at the school store

ps..I don’t “pop” his collar, it just wouldn’t stay down

grandma sauer ๐Ÿ™‚

and grandpa (i guess i forgot the caption)

4 generations ๐Ÿ™‚

Those last few pics are with Emerson’s great-grandma…he was such the wiggle worm with her and it was as always…precious. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then we introduced him to my mom’s long time gal pal Amy!

All in all we had a wonderful time and daddy got his class finished! ย Adam got an early flight home so Emerson and I swung by and picked him up on our way home and ended the trip as our happy little family. ๐Ÿ™‚

My own kind of high.

I don’t need drugs people.

I need a craft.

I want them.

I crave them.

And this past weekend (actually 2 weekends ago now), I was on a big craft high. It was wonderful.

I have a friend who has a blog that has a tutorial for how to applique a shirt. HOW did I never do this before? Might be a new favorite hobby (thanks Mandy). I made three shirts to start off and I’m sure I’m so nerdy/ridiculous to Adam. I’m like “LOOK! It’s so awesome! AND I made this one! And this one! And oh my gosh I can’t wait to make this one!” I’m way to excited. Geezz…

I also decided our front door looked a ย little bland…all green and apartment-ish looking. So I decided to make a Valentines wreath.

I also have a friend who was having her one year olds b-day party and I was thrilled to get to make the cake and cupcakes! I was kind of on top of the world at that moment. ย I have said before that I plan to finish my cake decorating classes but I just haven’t gotten around to it SO…I was super excited to get to make a cake. It’s not perfect (which is hard for me) but it was so fun to make! It was also a bit messy which makes it even better. ๐Ÿ™‚ Emerson is seriously going to love baking with me.

Birthday boy was a fan of the cake. And oh-so adorable having his first taste of the sweet life.

Emerson was a big fan of the balloons.


In between all of this craftiness I hung out with the boys at home. The birthday party was incorporated into the superbowl which was a GRAND idea and so much fun.
