So now I am a mother of two boys!
Emmett's gender was unknown until he arrived, and a few people have said we must be disappointed not to have had a girl. I have to say I just don't feel that at all. When Emmett entered the world I was given the chance to look down and see for myself what sex he was. Before that moment, I doubted I would care, and found that this was definitely true. I was immediately so happy he was here and safe, I didn't even for a moment feel disappointed. I'm a little bit annoyed that people could suggest you would give your new child back to get a different one. When one considers the time it took for us to have Emmett, I feel especially blessed at how healthy and content he is, and know that he was meant to be in our lives.
Now that things have settled down a bit and we feel a bit more in control of our lives, I'd like to start posting regularly. To that end, tomorrow I plan to post the big sewing project that took Emmett's bassinet from this:
Check back tomorrow to see where we go with this!
