Although Putter Davis is not the One True Cat, for a walk-on, he's done quite nicely. When E.W. found him in the yard after the stormy Memorial Day weekend in 2007, he weighed 1 lb. 3 oz. and required bottle feeding. Since then, he's had many different looks, most notably his teenage rebel phase in the lower left corner. We're just glad he showed up, punk hair and all, four years ago today.

Despite the fact that Ellie is crazy about her baby sister, this picture from a couple of weeks ago reminded me of Freddie's reaction when Ellie arrived. Pretty sure that Ellie is really just ready for Emma to stop all that lounging around and start playing and wearing dress up clothes. These girls are going to have so much fun together!

|Three Emmetts 12-26-90|
My beloved grandmother's maiden name was Wright, so of course I am touched that Worth and Ashley chose it for her middle name. Sweet Emma...blessed with the love of family before she even knows it!

Carrie, Luther, and Kate (age 2)
|Emilio Ernesto Cavaleri|
|Rev. Emilio Ernesto Cavaleri|
That immigrant's only child was my paternal great-grandfather, Emilio Ernesto Cavaleri. After an unorthodox childhood, he married Maggie Fairbanks with whom he had thirteen children. He was a Methodist minister and retired in Birmingham. What a coincidence that Emma was born there (especially if you skim his Life Story and see the number of places where he could have landed)! There are two more Emilios (my grandfather's brother and nephew) but now we're getting into another branch of the family tree (but how cool is it that they ARE Birmingham people, too?)!

Adding to the week's joy is the arrival of our new granddaughter! We got the call in the wee hours of the morning that she'd decided the fourth of May would be a great birthday. Emma Wright Bowers arrived at 1:49 (cst) this afternoon, all 20 inches of her, and weighed in at 7 pounds 6 ounces.
Thankfully the Tifts are there, 'cause E.W. and I have a little wedding we're hosting this weekend. :)
Life is good and we are blessed beyond measure.
