Emerson, Hello there, sorry it has been so long since I last wrote.  Work has been very busy lately as I lost a colleague and our team is taking on his work.  This is quite a challenge, but at least it keeps us out of trouble.  In addition to work I’ve recently joined the Chatham […]

Emerson, Happy summer, young man.  We’ve had a busy summer, but it’s not over yet!  In a few weeks we will be heading to Florida, our first real family vacation.  Your Mother has done a great job of organizing the trip and prepping us all for the journey.  We’ve been banking movies for the ride […]

Old Man, Emerson, you are now four years old!  This year was even more special because we shared the day; your birthday was on the same day as father’s day!  We celebrated your birthday on Saturday (a day early) and it was a wonderful time.  You got lots of toys, but your larger gift was […]

My man, Emerson, you are quite an amazing little man.  As I have mentioned in previous posts, we’ve recently moved.  Since my last post we’ve moved into the new home, sold the old, and started playing soccer! The old house sold very quickly.  We are happy that it sold, but very sorry to see it […]

Holy smokes!  It has been a very long time since I last blogged!  Thankfully we’ve been working on a audio diary, so all is not lost. We are so busy right now because we are moving!  We found a larger home and were lucky enough to be able to purchase it.  We rolled the dice […]

Daddy, Wait, did I just call you daddy?  Yes, why yes I did.  Why you ask?  Because we are currently playing a game (that you created) where you and Arden are daddy and Mommy and your Mother and I are Arden and Emerson (respectively).  I love when you are in your silly moods, because it […]

Happy Thanksgiving! I have a lot to be thankful for this year, most of all being two beautiful, smart, and healthy children.  You are growing up so quickly.  You’re getting bigger and looking older, but most importantly your mental capacity is growing at an astonishing rate.  You are picking up complicated concepts very quickly and […]

Emerson, Things are going very well lately. You’ve been quite well-behaved, you seem to be loving school, and you’re getting along well with your sister. Occasionally I will hear you in the other room playing with her and that’s a beautiful thing. You’ve been much more outgoing ever since starting school, I think there’s hope […]

Bird Dog, Time has surely flown by.  You are growing up so fast I can barely believe it.  I’ve started a few posts, but never got around to finishing them.  Today is the day we catch up!!! We celebrated your third birthday, which was great.  On Friday we had your Mother’s family over and they […]

Emerson, With deep sorrow I am writing to report the passing of your Grandmother, my Mother, Pati.  It’s been nearly a month and things haven’t gotten much easier.  I believe I’ve gone through most of the phases of loss and now I’m stuck here at sadness.  I think about all of the things she’ll miss […]
