Emma Lynne McRae Roth
Emma entered the world at 8:30 pm on New Year's Eve, 1999 -- much to the surprise of her parents, Barb McRae and Charles Roth, who had expected her on January 18, 2000! Clearly Emma already had a mind of her own.
Out of pride, in fun, and to keep our distant friends and relatives up to date, we've put together this web "scrapbook" of pictures and stories about Emma. We hope to keep adding to these pages... at least until Emma can take over for herself.
We've divided the scrapbook into separate sections, each about a particular phase in Emma's life. (OK, we're ambitious.) Click on the thumbnail pictures or links below to see each section.
|Summer 2000 -- Emma's first motor boat ride, and the babysitter from Heaven(!).|
|First few weeks at home -- adjustments and adaptations, a new life, and funny stories about sleep deprivation. (Jedi Dad: "Emma, you must learn to feel the Force flowing through you...")|
|Birth Announcement -- we weren't even home from the hospital, and certain relatives wanted to know where the web pictures were already!|
|In the beginning -- or, Emma's journeys in utero, and how she became known as "Java Bean".|
