Emerson wanted part of the action… and as you can see in the full length photo, so did Ruckus. Last night my husband gave me the best present – he stayed with Emerson all night with a bottle so I got six hours of UNINTERRUPTED sleep! I thought I was doing okay, but last night I went to hug Ruckus and fell asleep on him. Didn't even realize it, it was like once I hit his fur I passed out. I have also hard a hard time finding the right word for what I am thinking. Now I feel so much more like… me! Don't get me wrong, Emerson is a fabulous baby who goes to sleep right after eating, but still she eats around every three hours. This was a much needed treat for me to keep plugging through the work week!

  1. Boy! how I miss those baby cheeks. All of my kids had very chubby cheeks lots of rolls and were in the 90+ percentile.

    My kids still have big cheeks but filled out now.

Good news is this – when Emerson is the age of my girls – she will admire you and you will be one of her heros (I am sure Daddy will be the other)!
