father and child reunion

Steve got home from Scottsdale tonight! Daniel and I survived three days and nights without him and did just fine, thanks in part to the friends and in-laws who came over with dinner — or just good company — each evening. (And thanks to my HBO friends Vincent Chase, E., Johnny Drama and Turtle from Entourage, my faithful companions during late-night feedings on the couch.) It was incredibly cute to watch Daniel's reaction when Steve held him in his arms. He just stared up into his daddy's face, totally engrossed and delighted. I don't know who was happier to see the other! And needless to say, I am thrilled to have my honey home.

Emilie, you're such a great mom. I just want to say that.

When I was visiting, you were so patient with Daniel. Even when he would cry a lot, I could sense you consciously breathing deep, and not losing your cool. And I know you do all of this because you love Daniel so much.

Aw, thanks Sue! (I have to admit, you haven't seen me in the middle of the night when I *really* *really* don't want to get out of bed. But I try.) Thanks everyone else, too. :)

I have to agree with the others. I love you new profile photo.

And I love how Stephen is looking at his son and how the son is staring up at daddy.
What a great shot.

Have you started scrapbooking yet?
