And His Name Shall Be Emmett Patrick :)

We named the baby. Yes, in about a whopping 59 hours since the ultrasound. :) Our top names for Baby E were Eamon, Emerson, Emmett, and Ezra, and we narrowed in on Emmett Patrick as the name for our little munchkin-to-come. Patrick is my dad's middle name, so it's a nod to him, in keeping with our tradition of using family names for the middle name. Can't wait to meet you, sweet Emmett!!

It's been raining quite a bit here lately, which is actually quite a welcome event. The grass has been SO dry and it just looks dead around here. Cole is just a smidge excited to break out his rain gear.

So sweet. The froggy raincoat and boots have been regular attire, indoors and out. :) 

And they like to snuggle up with blankets in the cooler weather. 

Finally, the boys are getting psyched for Halloween. After changing his mind about 53 times in a few weeks, Cole settled on wanting to be a lion. Thanks to my friend Amy, Cole has a new costume for the event! I have a feeling it's going to be worn many times before Halloween. :) 

He was so excited that he ran around the apartment roaring and saying he wanted meat for dinner. lol

In other news, we re-tried the TheraTogs on Dean today and he handled them MUCH better than the time before. He is oh so close to pulling up on his own and he is quite proud of himself, as usual. :) Jen agreed with my suggestion to move PT to twice a week (yay!!!!) and I'm confident this will mean greater progress for him. He's ready for it. Dean responds so much to our expectations when we believe in him, and he responds so well to positive affirmation (who doesn't?). It's a good reminder to believe in him AND THEN to let him know how we feel. :)

LOVE EMMETT! Haven't heard it in a long time which is a huge plus. You came to mind when I read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society (if you like to read fiction I HIGHLY recommend it). Anyway, one of the male characters was named Eben. It's too much like Evan but still cool I thought. Emmett is much better though. Check out the book if you have any free time to read.

I'm very curious about Theratogs; I'll look into them and ask around.

Have a great visit with Dr. Miller and her team!
