In the Kitchen with Emerson

Robin and Kelleen from Kelleen Kreations sent Emerson a customized apron a month or so ago. Robin (aka Mrs. Bradley) was actually my 4th grade teacher! Her daughter, Kelleen, creates kids clothing and kitchen accessories (pot holders, aprons, etc.). I had actually been wanting to get Em an apron for her play kitchen for a while, so this was the perfect opportunity!

Robin asked what colors Em liked and we came up with this design - colorful pattern for the main and polka dots for the lining and pockets (of course).

When the apron arrived, I was very impressed! It looked professionally made and the quality was great. The fabric we picked was adorable in person. Emerson loved the bright colors! It fit her perfectly - we went with the size Small, which is about a 3-4 (Emerson is about 36 inches tall). 

Emerson's favorite part about the apron were the pockets! Once she realized they were there, she was obsessed! She tried stuffing all her "food" in them (they were actually quite spacious!).

You can tell Emerson loves her new apron and it definitely feels like something "special" when she plays with her kitchen. And let me tell you how hard it is to get a two year old to pose for pictures... especially a toddler with a strong will! :)

We would highly recommend Kelleen Kreations if you are looking for a great quality kids' apron! Perfect to pair with their play kitchen, especially if they love making "eggs and tea" for their Mama. :)

Teddy's Newborn Photos

Once again, we had the fabulous Tami from Lorene Photography take Teddy's newborn photos! Teddy was a champ and let us take some awesome pics (even though it took a while to get him to sleep in some of them). And, he only had one accident! Haha. Here's his newborn photos, taken at 10 days old. Isn't he the sweetest?!

Theodore Michael Kane

Theodore (Teddy) Michael Kane finally greeted us on Thursday, June 11th at 10:04 am weighing 8 lbs 12 oz and 20 3/4 inches. Thankfully, it was a pretty fast and easy delivery (thank you second pregnancy + epidural!!!). Once Teddy came out, he was having difficulty breathing and thankfully the NICU team was in the room to take care of him. I got to hold him for a quick minute before they took him up to the NICU to give him oxygen and monitor his breathing. It was probably the scariest time of both Zach and my lives. Zach didn't leave Teddy's side for the whole 6-7 hours he was in the NICU. Finally he was cleared after his oxygen and breathing levels were stabilized and he could come back down and be with me (and I could finally feed him!). I was able to visit him a couple times while he was in there, but it was so hard not knowing what was going on. I was definitely thankful to have a doctor as a husband that didn't leave Teddy's side and knew (somewhat) what was going on!!

 Emerson in the pink and Teddy in the blue. Don't they look like they could be twins?!

Teddy has been the most chill baby! He barely makes a peep except when he gets hungry or when we have our cooing conversations. He's a great eater and so far has been a good sleeper (we've even had a couple sleeps through the night!) He is the perfect addition to our little family and we couldn't be more in love with him!

Emerson's One Year Photos

I guess you could say I'm way behind on this blogging-in-real-time thing! Currently I'm typing this out one-handed while holding my little snoodled up Teddy Bear and catching up on Parenthood episodes. :) Life is good. I promise an update is coming on Mr. Theo, complete with a ton of newborn baby pictures. Promise.

For now, I'll leave you with these... Emerson's One Year Photos and our Family Photos. Again, Tami with Lorene Photography took them last August and they turned out so good. Not without a lot of effort though... as you can see, we had to use a lot of props to distract her (Hi Mr. Conductor!). I'm actually surprised that Tami got any good shots at all solely because of how Emerson was so grumpy that day (she captured those emotions too, which are actually some of my faves)! Tami truly knows how to get the smiles out of the little ones though! 

And man, do I miss those delicious baby leg rolls!
