I think my favorite thing to see since Emerson was born is the interaction between Penelope and Emerson. I knew it would be more beneficial for Penelope to have a sibling but never could I quite imagine what it would look/feel like to see her play with a sibling. More than that to see Emerson be quite fond of Penelope. Both of their faces light up when they see each other and Penelope is so helpful with him. Emerson just watches Penelope constantly…watching her every mood and waiting until she makes eye contact with him. Then his little face lights up with a big grin.
They're both growing so fast. I feel like I barely blink and Emerson's another month older and Penelope is going into a new school year. She starts First Grade today and I can't wait to hear all her stories about being a First Grader and all her new friends (oh and she wouldn't let me pick her out her first day of school outfit…she had to do that all on her own). Emerson turned five months old over the weekend and has started rocking on all fours and then lunging forward one time. He'll be crawling in no time.
I never knew how these two little human beings could make my heart so full.
