Emily married her dear Daniel last year, so it was no surprise that the two of them were thinking about adding a baby to the family. Daniel surprised Emily on the Thursday before our birthday with a gift-- asking if she'd like it early, because "I think you might be able to use it now."
The gift was... a puppy (aren't we glad she decided to accept the gift early?). HOORAY FOR PUPPIES! I had the opportunity to stop by and meet her one night when an engagement session got rained out. Love, LOVE! I can't wait for Sammy to meet my Fred.
