It’s been really hot lately, which means our outside time has been cut in half. Lately, I’ve been taking Emory out in the morning for a few hours and returning home before it gets too unbearable. The excessive heat has me brainstorming more exciting indoor activities, which is why we recently brought out the paint and made a massive mess. I knew Emory would love this; what kid doesn’t love painting? But what I hadn’t anticipated was how much Murray would enjoy the activity. He was at Emory’s side the entire time.
Here are a few pictures from that day.
When Toby and I first discussed having kids, we agreed that we only wanted one. And even after Emory was born, we still only wanted to have one child. It wasn’t until I saw him interact with Murray did I begin to realize how nice it would be for Emory to have a sibling.
So, should we one day feel lighter about our recent tragic setback and have a go at another child, that decision can be blamed entirely on Murray.
I just wanted you all to know that.
