Emerson! Yes, I can finally feel good about typing your name because you FINALLY said it out loud!  Over the past few months your vocabulary has expanded exponentially, but you refused to say your name, “Emerson”.  I have no idea why because you’ve heard the word thousands of times before and you can say much more […]

I thought that someday it might be interesting to look back at a typical day in the life of Emerson Andrew Detmers at the age of 687 days (1 year, 10 months, and 17 days): 6:30AM:  Begin the wake-up process.  This typically includes a lot of moaning and groaning, some laughing and crying, and almost […]

Buddy, Well, first of all the weather has been amazing and it’s allow for us to play outside together much more lately.  If the choice was yours you would stay outside all day everyday.  You’re constantly sneaking into the back yard – which we have got to get stopped immediately.  You like to run around, […]

Emerson, I think I’ve mentioned this many times but your development amazes me.  It seems as though you learn more and more words each day.  Lately you have also expanded on your need for independence.  You demand that you open the door to let Tonka out, you close the garage door on our way in, […]

Little E, Perhaps I should just admit defeat and realize that it is unlikely that I can continue to post every week.  With that said, what’s new?!?  Obviously we’ve celebrated Halloween since my last post.  This year you dressed as a state trooper and you were so stinking cute.  A few days before you and […]

Emerson, You are simply crazy about watermelon.  I swear you would eat it and only it as long as we’d let you.  I think you’re going to have a great summer because watermelon is pretty plentiful these days. Another thing that is very funny to me is that you won’t drive your cozy coupe without […]

E, Your first visit to the park was a blast.  I believe you had a ton of fun.  Check out the pictures when you get a chance. Final Thoughts:  You are definitely going to be a dare devil.

Emerson, Things have gone pretty well this week.  You have been sleeping better lately, in fact I just heard you giggle in your sleep just now.  Not too much new this week, you and Tonka got a bath tonight (not at the same time or with the same water). We had a game night on […]

My Man, Well,  I ended up buying a second remote control helicopter.  So far you completely hate it.  It scares you because it fires up pretty quickly which startles you but also I believe you can sense your Mother’s nervousness. We are going to take Tonka to the vet tomorrow because he continues to have […]

Emerson, I speak to you now as an aged old man.  Yesterday I turned 28 years old.  I feel so much older and wiser now; I can’t wait until I turn 29! Lots happened this week.  Thanksgiving was on Thursday.  We started the day off at home, taking it fairly easy.  Our first trip was […]
