Emerson's birthday

My nephew Emerson is almost 3 years old. I remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. I love being present for the birth of a baby. There is something just so special about welcoming a new baby. Today I decided to use Kellie Puddy's template challenge at Color Line Design to create a LO about this special day.


The journaling says: It was a beautiful warm day. Mom, Dad, Big Brothers, Grandma and Auntie Kathi were all excited to meet you. The doctors thought you were going to be a big baby so they were all ready to bring you into the world by c- section. We all settled into our places. Mom got ready for surgery. Dad got into his scrubs. Grandma, Delano, Elijah and Auntie Kathi all settled into the waiting room. We were overwhelmed with joy when Dad came in to tell us that you were here. A few minutes later they brought you into a room for us to watch you get cleaned up and all your little tests done. Your brothers looked on in amazement. Elijah had told us earlier that he didn’t want a brother but when he saw you he didn’t want to leave your side for even a minute. Delano was soon distracted by a game book he had. Grandma and Auntie Kathi took your proud new brothers for a walk by the fountain across the street. This gave you r Mommy and Daddy some time to get to know you all by themselves. Your brothers were so happy to think of all the things they were going to do with you. When we returned we all spent some time watching your every cute little move. Yes, in the end it was a perfect beautiful warm day.
