 How precious is little Walt?
 He often makes this sweet little expression with his lips...

My newest little grandson...I'm definitely in love with him...

Happy Birthday, Gabe!

 Someone had a birthday on October 2...
someone who turned 37 years old!

Emerson helped and we made cupcakes to celebrate.
White cake with chocolate frosting
and quite a lot of sprinkles!
Emerson wanted to carry the cupcake in to his dad as we sang...
We had 3 candles across top (for '30')
and 7 candles around the bottom.
We bought a small photo book for Emerson's dad...
and we put pictures of Walt...and Walt and Emerson...
and more photos of the family in it.
Two other photos, we framed.  
We made birthday Emerson is explaining it all to his daddy!

I figured a birthday of a daddy is the perfect time to take photos!

We took some family photos...
that's always fun!

(FYI...Emily was NOT drinking this beer.)

What a sweet birthday this was!
Happy birthday, Gabe!

You'll always be MY baby boy!

Walt on October 1, 2015

 Here is Walt on October 1.
 Emily and I took a journey south...
I needed to go to San Anselmo to get some more balsamic vinegar...
so we took a little detour and went out to eat lunch at the Cheesecake Factory.
 Walt slept the entire time...
but when we got home, and he had a full belly...
I took a few pictures of him on his whale blanket.

He is so precious!

Emerson gets a haircut for picture day at school

 Emerson has his personal barber,
aka his dad!
 The barber shop is also used as
the restroom.
 Emerson decides to make a...
weird face?
 or two...
 or three...
 or four....
 or five?
 "Emerson, look down," said his dad.
 He did.

 This was actually the next morning as Emerson was getting ready to head to school.
Such a handsome young man!
Lucky Mimi, I got to go volunteer in his 1st grade classroom during reading groups.
Emerson was writing a story about he and his Mimi playing football cards.
I didn't get to read the whole story, so I'm definitely looking forward to that!

It was a fun day in a first grade classroom with a sweet young man with a great new haircut!

Emerson wanted it noted on this blog, that the guy in the brown striped shirt is his buddy, Will.

Walt goes to the doctor for his first check-up

 Isn't he precious?
Walt had his first doctor appointment today.  It was just a little check-up.
 I got him undressed for the doctor..

 She weighed him...
8 lbs. 2.3 oz.
He was 8 lbs. 11 oz. at birth...

 Walt was an excellent patient!
 Back at the ranch, Emerson and I were playing football cards.
We (well, Emerson actually had to help his Mimi who is not too up on football players) sorted them by positions.  Then we ranked them by who we would have on our first string, second string, etc.
 It was quite an ordeal!
I bet we did this about 4 hours!
 When Walt's daddy came home from work, he wanted to snuggle with his newest little man.

It was another sweet day!!!!!!
(Exclamation marks by Emerson!)
