Emmett was learning to clap while we were visiting my family in New Jersey and Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving last week. It was the first time my family was all together since Emmett and Gus were born, and the first time my extended family met Gus, so it was a lot of fun. Gus is a lot more interactive than the last time I visited with him, so it was interesting to see the two babies get along. Although most of the interactions between them involved Emmett sitting on and poking at Gus' face, it was great to have them both in the same room.
Some highlights in pictures:

The babies' first Thanksgiving was a big success in my opinion. And if Emmett were still in my belly, he would've been about the size of a 20 lb. turkey :) Hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving!
