Shortly after Emerson's first birthday, Danny had to take a trip to Minnesota. We think this was one of the first times that Emerson realized that her Daddy had left for an extended period as she often would say "Dada". Danny decided to get Emerson a little present to bring home for Emerson and since she was (and still is) so into animals, the My First Barn toy was perfect. Emerson loved pulling out each animal, squeezing it, and hearing the noise that it makes. Danny, on the other hand, didn't realize that this would be the first of many presents (see previous post) he would be bringing Emerson from his business trips.
