We can’t, of course, forget sweet, sweet Emma amid all the gushing over her darling brother Henry.
She’s been enjoying Grandma and Grandpa Mandel’s visit with us immensely. There’s generally been a “warming up” period when they visit as she gets used to someone other than Mommy and Daddy tromping around the house and wanting to play with her.
Not so this visit.
The very first night she was up and in their laps at supper time eating from their plates as she so loves to do. Food is just so much more delicious when it is a) someone elses and b) fed to you by someone else.
The last half of this gallery is from the 15th, when we were all dressed up for Henry’s naming at the synagogue. (We couldn’t bring ourselves to do the Bris where the Hebrew name for a boy is traditionally given. I have too many Seinfeld memories.)
At any rate, after the naming we went to Corner Bakery in Tustin for tasty lunch and some play at the fountain there. It was only later that I realized that on a day all about Henry I hadn’t taken a single picture of him. Oops!
Emma enjoyed herself thoroughly. Running, running and running. And a little more running. I’ve got too many favorites from the fountain to name them all, but I’m particularly tickled by the exchange captured between her and Grandpa Mandel. Too cute.
