Life with two wee ones
Emerson is a little darling. I've caught a few glimpses of the little satisfied smile. She has an alarming cry for such a little thing, but other than that she's living the life of an infant... and now I remember what life with an infant is like. They eat, sleep and poop and you want to watch it all. But with all the hustle and bustle around here, I'm not doing as much baby watching as I did in Griffin's first week... sorry Emerson! I do enjoy it all the same. Those funny faces as she drifts off to dream land and taking in every moment when she's awake. Smelling that new baby smell and touching her soft skin. Those little fingers, toes and squeaks are so precious.
Griffin is taking to brotherhood just fine. He runs to see her when he hears her cry, sings her songs and likes to touch her and say "nose, head, etc". However one has to keep a close eye on him as he's lightening fast at getting to her and doesn't always have a gentle touch.
The hustle and bustle has included many good friends and family. You are not only helping welcome Emerson into our lives, but also helping finish the basement. It's been a work-in-progress for quite sometime (initially it was going to be done before Griffin's birth), but lately they've been working super hard. First electrical, moving the "things in storage" out to the garage, insulation, sheet rock, mudding & taping, texturizing (all before Emerson came). Last weekend they primed, painted and worked more on electrical. Wow, we have great friends and family to help us turn this shack around! Today Dad and Keir started putting in the flooring! It's going to be great!
So thanks to all for your hard work! We can't wait to enjoy the basement with you and have a guest room for you to stay! Also, thanks for welcoming Emerson to this world with open arms. We're so lucky to have a strong support group to help raise her. We love you!
