a photo of Emmet every week in 2017
These two. Unlikely best friends. They have figured out each others quirks and know exactly when to love the other. Emmet has figured out how to navigate around Moose when clambering about the house. He strategically steps over his legs when roaming about the coffee table and crawls underneath him when he is in his way. He giggles uncontrollably when Moose runs around the yard and has even started to "throw" the tennis ball for Moose when we are outside playing fetch. Moose knows exactly where to stand to get a tasty treat, Emmet reaches down a handful of food for Moose to lick while Emmet giggles at the way his tongue feels on his hand. When he's done eating, Emmet uses his arms like windshield wipers on his high chair tray knocking all the food off on the floor. Moose runs over and cleans it up, I think secretly they have a deal. Sometimes they have run ins though, Moose will on occasion knock Emmet over or bump into him when he's excited. Sometimes Emmet will pull Moose's ears, which Moose hates but tolerates for Emmet. My favorite is when they, on rare occasion, snuggle. When they both have come down from their silly demeanors and are pooped out from the day. We'll all lay on the couch and Emmet will crawl over and lay his little head down on Moose's body, thumb in his mouth, and rest if only for a second before they are both ready to play again.
