This week Tyler has been away on a business trip in Vegas (hmmm...) and, while I've missed him, I've also become keenly aware that he is with me, just in the form of Emi.
Tyler is very creative and quite resourceful. He is always looking for new ways to use household items. Here is Emi doing her favorite thing (this week anyway): playing with our recyclables. Just like her Pop, Emi has found a new home for our trash...or perhaps the lectures I've recently given her about the economy have paid off and she is creating a "new toy" for herself.
Recently, I've noticed that Emi is quite mischievous. As her personality reveals itself, I'm finding more and more that she takes after Dad. Even though I've known Emi's Dad almost all my life, there are times when I am not sure if he is being serious. (99.9% of the time Tyler is NOT serious.)
If mannerism and personality similiarities are not convincing enough, it is obvious to me that Emi is Tyler's mini-me. I think the following photos demonstrate this best. Hello, can we say spitting image?
We are very excited for Dad to be home today. Emi and I have really missed him, and so has the garbage and the laundry. Welcome home Ty!
