We wanted Owen to be the first one to see him, well besides my Mom, who was there for the birth. I know that’s really not the norm anymore, but I could not imagine not having my Mama there.
So about an hour after I had Emery, my Mom went to get Owen.
He was pretty freaked out to see me, I was clearly in pain and he first asked “Mommy wants wrong, you ok? . Then he started crying and I had to quickly assure him that I was ok, poor guy, but it was the sweetest thing to see him so concerned for me.
And then he saw Emery, he came up to him and the first thing he said was “Ohhh tiny tooooes. Which then, somewhere along the line changed into “Toey toes” and that is now Owen’s nick name for him. Well really, it’s just what he calls him most of the time. It’s also what we find our selves calling him to, “be nice to toey toes”, “can you get toey toes a toy”. It’s a little awkward when we forget and call him that in public. We’ve gotten a few looks, “wait, what’s his name”, Oh that’s just his nick name, his name is Emery.
Emery just started saying Dada, so what he said your name first Ryan, so what!
So now Owen has been trying to get him to say his name, I can’t wait to see if Emery will have a nick name for him.
