My Sweet Emmett Boy.

Yesterday we went our Christmas shopping all afternoon with the aunties and a friend.  I couldn't be more proud of you.  The way you go with the flow.  The way you smile and laugh over the littlest things.  The patience you already show, even when you were surrounded by packages in your stroller.  I know you are going to be such a wonderful man someday.

Then last night after you went to bed, your daddy was saying how it is one of the worst parts of the curse of having work and provide.  The missing out on so much of your daily life.  He really thinks you are the coolest kid ever.  Someday I am hopeful that he and I can work out someway so he can be home with you more.  Also maybe you could try to save some of your best tricks for the evenings when we are all together, mkay?!

You are such a treasure to us and I hope you always and forever know how much we love you.  And if you can, try not to get too cool for your old mom and dad.  We sure like hanging out with you and hope you stick around for a long time.

Love you, bubs!!
