    A Look Back.


Hellooooo, Friday!  I am running around today cleaning and organizing – preparing for the arrival of my in-laws tomorrow.  They will be here visiting with Cullen for a week!  We don’t pretend that they are visiting us anymore.  :)

This is their first time visiting our new house, and of course we’d like it to look nice.  So we’ve finally been tackling all those projects we have avoided for the past four months – hanging things on walls, cleaning up storage areas, etc.  I’ve been trying to knock little things off lists for a few weeks now.

Casey came downstairs this morning and announced that he wants to go buy a new guest bed TODAY, because the crap futon we have in our guestroom is falling apart.  This is classic Casey – 24 hours before his parents arrive, and instead of doing all the laundry and cleaning I had planned, he wants to go furniture shopping.  I have a feeling it will be a late night!

I’ll be running around most of the day, but I wanted to share something fun with you since it’s Friday and it’s a holiday weekend.  This is Cullen’s new favorite game – peekaboo in the curtains.  Every time he does it, a little piece of my heart explodes.  Cannot even handle the cuteness.

Headed into the curtains…

Followed by fits of laughter, and then repeating it no less than ten times.

I caught him with the video camera toward the end of the game yesterday.  He usually laughs a lot harder at the beginning, but he still gives a good giggle in this one.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Ok, that is just too darn cute. I love the little headstand he does.

Your posts about Cullen always give me such baby fever! Haha


Angela     at 10:13 am

That smile could make anyone’s heart melt! If he’s anything like my youngest nephew, he will have 9 girlfriends by the age of 4. hah


Stef     at 10:17 am

So cute! I love how he comes to grab the camera at the end. My son loves reaching for ours too!


Jaime D     at 10:18 am

OMG, those pictures are too cute!! My husband is the same way – super last minute when it comes to stuff like that! I feel your pain ;)


sarah (the SHU box)     at 10:32 am

that is SO something my husband would do – and i would so flip out :) i am impressed you are so calm!! random post request for the future: BABYPROOFING! i’m guessing with cullen’s personality you have become an expert in creating safe territories for him :)


Ashley M. [at] (never home)maker     at 10:37 am

Hahah love it. My in-laws are coming next weekend. So, I know how it goes. Have a great visit!


Katie     at 10:42 am

Olivia does the same thing with our curtains! Precious!


Erin @ Girl Gone Veggie     at 10:42 am

Omg he is so adorable! I hope you guys have the best time with your inlaws! He’s a lucky little boy to have so many people that love him!


Rachel @ My Naturally Frugal Family     at 10:44 am

It is so amazing to see how much he has grown. It has been so much fun to watch him grow from in-utero to present.

Thanks so much Emily for sharing him. This video brightened my day indeed.


Christina     at 10:53 am

So hilarious! I laughed so hard. I love the way, even though he fell, he still finds the end result a hilarious success!


Andrea     at 10:54 am

We just bought a new mattress for the guest room just in time for my sister’s visit in July.From of all places- Mattress depot. The Lady Americana brand is actually manufactured locally… It’s comfy for spring mattress (hubby and I have foam). Futons and air mattresses have their limits. :)
Peek A Boo! SO CUTE!!!OMG he’s so mobile!


Angela     at 11:09 am

I hope you have a great time with the in-laws. The video and pics of Cullen’s game are so precious! Thanks for sharing :)


Sarah     at 11:17 am

Too cute! xxx


Lauren @ Sassy Molassy     at 11:33 am

I can barely handle the cuteness of his big laugh as he gets up. So cute.


Katie @ Peace Love & Oats     at 11:46 am

I could seriously watch Cullen videos all day, he is the cutest little baby and so happy! Haha well at least when we see him! Good luck with getting everything done today!


Krissy @ Make it Naked     at 11:59 am

Ohhh. Emmm. Geeee! Love it. I can NOT believe how big he’s gotten. We’re thinking of going back to hawaii in feb. You should probably come :)


Kaitlyn @ Keeping up with Kaitlyn     at 12:01 pm

I can’t even handle how ADORABLE he is!!!!


Vanessa     at 1:56 pm

Cullen is just amazingly cute and you can tell he is SO well taken care of and well adjusted:-) He has a superb mommy & daddy:-)
And my husband is that way too, he loves to get EVERYTHING done before people come…drives me bonkers.


Kelly     at 3:51 am

He is SOO cute haha, I love it! Good luck getting everything ready for the visit. The good thing is, they aren’t coming to see the house either, just Cullen so keep that in mind :)


JessicaE     at 8:50 am

My son is 6 weeks old tomorrow and I LOVE watching Cullen videos. Hard to believe he will be playing peek-a-boo and running around sooner than I realize. <3


Angela @ Happy Fit Mama     at 11:09 am

We just went through that a few weeks ago when my parents came for a visit. My hubs decided he needed to finish the new patio 24 hours before they arrived. Never mind that the project started 2 months ago.

Curtains mystify babies! My kids, even at 2 yrs old, still like to play in the curtains play peek a boo. So cute!


Amber K     at 12:28 pm

He is so adorable. Love playing peek-a-boo with kids his age!


Val     at 9:50 pm

too cute!


Marty     at 1:22 am

Took cute! Have a lovely weekend and week with Casey’s parents, what fun for Culken, his grandparents and Casey his family, and you, some extra hands and arms!


Jaclyn @ JustJac     at 4:45 am

that is one ridiculously cute baby you have there :]


Emily @ www.main-eats.com     at 7:00 am

SUPER cute!!! Hope you have a fun visit with your in-laws and that you found a great bed!


katie     at 7:50 am

That last-minute bed buying trick sounds familiar. ;-) I love how he like falls out of the curtain. Have fun this week!


Kristen     at 11:37 pm

Too cute Emily! Hope you’re having a wonderful visit with the in-laws…I’m sure Cullen is loving all the grandparent attention (more people to play peek-a-boo with!!)


Kate @ life's precious moments     at 5:45 am

This is so adorable! Too cute!!


Leah     at 6:49 am

Enjoy your visit with the in-laws. At least they will have a comfy bed to sleep on! I always wondered about folks that end up having to tie the mattress to the roof (versus doing the free delivery). Now I know! It’s all about the 24 hour window and no time to wait! :)


Tams     at 1:27 pm

OH MY GOODNESS! That video just produced some loud barking and scurrying from sunroom to front window. My little dachshund/fox terrier Cassie is not sure how to react to your voice Emily and that only entices our Bucky (black lab/boxer) to join in. Now that things have calmed down, I have to say you have the cutest little peek-a-boo partner! Thank you for sharing that moment with us!

Haha oops – sorry! My dogs do that too. They don’t like other babies crying!
