Introducing...

Emeryck Lawrence Bradley
Born December 8th, 2010 at 10:37am
10 lbs, 23 inches

He came right on time; we had a great delivery and were home from the hospital the next afternoon. He's a good sleeper, a good eater and has such a sweet temperament. He never cries and only when desperate emits a short velociraptor-esque squawk - it's quite endearing, really. It's hard to believe he's already two weeks old!

Reagan is the perfect big brother and loves to cuddle and 'pet' Emeryck. He shares his blankie and brings him toys. He sets aside part of his cookies for 'Em-wick' and is constantly checking on him during naps (which sometimes are cut short by his big brotherly diligence - sigh).

We couldn't be more pleased with our two little boys. I just need to find something to call Emeryck that's not "little man." I've used it several times and Reagan perks up: "Yes, Mom?" since we've called him that since he was this size (or rather, about a pound and a half smaller, really). Maybe tiger, eh?

Grandma and Grandad Kochel have been here visiting; we blessed Emeryck on Sunday and had a big dinner with the Bradley family afterwards. It's been a full and busy couple of weeks and we're looking forward to a little slower pace in the next week or so as we celebrate Christmas with our little family of four. Four!

Merry Christmas all.
