Happy Birthday Emmett
Today Emma turned 21.
We spent most of the day watching "baby videos" remembering little, tiny Emma, and looking back on the last 21 years. Our family is big on home movies.
Twenty-one years ago, when Emma was born, my parents took me to the hospital to meet by new baby sister. I was only two and a half and could not have been more pleased to be taking a new baby home with me.
My parents hadn't decided on a name for our new baby before she was born, so I didn't have any idea what to call her. When I first met Emma, I made it very clear that I thought Emmett was a better name and I insisted on calling her that instead.
Twenty-one years later and the name, along with many others, has stuck.
So happy birthday to you baby sis, I sure love you, Emmett!
