Emma is such a delight to me at this stage in her life. She is a huge help around the house. She unloads the dishwasher, sweeps, wipes counters, switches laundry from washer to dryer, and even feeds Rascal. She has such a compassionate disposition that seeing anyone in pain hurts her as well. I am always challenged to show more compassion when she is around.
She adores her little sister and loves trying to make her laugh. Their favorite game right now is hide and seek and to hear them giggle....oh, I never thought something would sound so precious.
She loves to play HiHo Cherry O and carry around bags full of knickknacks.
We don't watch much TV, but she loves the occasional Disney Movie. Her current favorites are The Jungle Book, The Lion King, and the AristoCats. (We do still throw in Toy Story for good measure).
She has a Jesse doll that almost never leaves her side and must always be tucked in right beside her at night.(see above)
A few of my favorite Emma-isms....
blowing- "windin" for example- Mama that fan is WINDIN me!
How old are you? -"what old are you?"
Her get out of trouble techniques....
If I ask her why she's doing something she says "a cause when people do (fill in the blank) they don't get spankings"
She runs in the room with a very guilty look on her face and the following conversation begins....
me-"Emma what did you do?"
emma- "mama, just be happy, ok?"
me- "Emma what did you do?"
emma- "don't cry, but I (fill in the blank)"
She loves our Tuesday Bible Study Fellowship. We are currently working on bible memory verses and saying our own prayers.
Emma is very excited about the new little baby in mommy's tummy. She says its a girl and we should name her Baghera. HA!
I am constantly amazed at the little lady Emma is becoming. I can't wait to see what the future holds for her.
