Sorry no pictures today, just a couple of cute stories about Emerson before I forget them. Both happened earlier today.
After lunch I let the kids have some jellybeans. Emerson always eats his quickly and asks for more which he usually doesn't get. Alyssa eats hers slowly and I'm beginning to think she might do this because she knows her brother eats them fast and she can torment him with the fact she still has some. But today after I tell him he can't eat anymore Alyssa offers to share some of her remaining jellybeans. She hands over a couple to Emerson. He says "Thanks Aly but I want ALL your jellybeans!" Haha. Nice try Emer.
Alyssa back in ballet and her first class was tonight. Emerson came with us since Travis wasn't home from work yet. When class was almost out I said to Emerson "Come on buddy, Aly's class is done in 5 min lets get our shoes on so we're ready to go" all Emer hears is "lets get our shoes on and go" I know this because he bursts into tears. Huge sobbing tears roll down his face, and he wails "We can't go without Alyssa, we have to wait for Aly, Mommy don't leave without my Aly" It was so sweet and I started to tear up and laugh. How nice that he loves his sister so much, and how silly that he thinks I would go without her. I gave him big hugs, promised we were not leaving without her.
