    +1: #1140 How to Say “I Love You”

    A little over seven and half years ago, Emerson was born at home. We had an amazing midwife (named Mary Jackson) for both Emerson and Eleanor’s births. I’ll never forget the very first moments of Emerson’s life. I had the blessed honor of being the first to officially welcome him into the world. RIGHT after he was born (literally a couple seconds after), he looked at me and our eyes met. Then he wrapped his tiny (!) little hand right around my pinky finger.
