Dear Emery Jack,
It’s crazy how the time flies! You are 10 months old now and I cannot believe that we’ve made it this far! Your dad and I always say things like, “Where did the little baby go?” It seems like only a little bit ago we were saying, “When do you think he’ll get on those knees and crawl?” Now we’re saying things like, “Emery Jack, get your fingers out of the VCR!” This is something that just recently has peaked your interest 🙂
You are a very independent baby and you want to do everything you have your mind set at. We walk with you everywhere until our backs are breaking, you have decided recently that you want to hold onto fingers and walk. EVERYWHERE! If for some reason you cannot get ahold of our hands, or if we hide them behind our backs you go into meltdown mode. You seem to be Very Dramatic. Maybe you’ll be an Actor? The other day you were so upset at me for telling you No that you cried so hard I thought you were going to throw up. You were gagging yourself in between blood curdling screams….
A couple days ago we took family pictures and had to cancel them mid-way through because you decided you didn’t want to have pictures taken right then, you wanted to sit on the photographers lap. You definitely do not know a stranger, you smile at everyone that looks your way and lift your arms up to them. I’ve had to many times tell strangers, that they need to leave you in the cart while shopping at Wal-Mart. You’re just that irresistible.
I love you.
