Emacs was created to do such things--in fact the name E-macs is a terse
form of Editor-Macros {originally a derivative of TECO}

{There is a huge list of what Emacs should stand for--my fave is: Emacs
Makes All Computing Simple}

Now, what I'm suggesting is you make a macro, and store and reuse it--to
get you started, I suggest something like this

Cx (
Cx )
Give it a name & save it & re-use it and/or EXTEND it later
