I can not believe that my baby is 2. My baby!!! The one who was just born what seems like 2 minutes ago, is now two years old. Time just flew by the third time around.
My Emme girl has been such a joy in our lives, and our little sunshine. She is almost always happy and her smile lights up our hearts. After two boys, it is so wonderful to experience a girl. She is so different than her brothers. She sits back and watches more, observing, she is already turning into such a little mama and making sure everyone is okay and comfortable. She often comes up and just starts rubbing our backs or stroking my face with a look of concern as she asks "you ok, mama?". She loves her baby dolls and wearing everyone's shoes and carrying around "backpacks". But don't underestimate, this girl. She's a tough one. Maybe my toughest kid. I guess you have to be with 2 older brothers. As much as she has her quiet moments, she can hold her own in a wrestling match with her brothers. She is starting to become much more independent than her brothers were at this age. She hates the carseat, stroller, highchair, anything that restricts her. She's a big girl, and has places to go, she can't be slowed down or restrained.
Emma loves all things Moana and Poppy ("Trolls"). She loves her brothers so much and always wants to be with them. She adores her Daddy, and has him wrapped around her finger.
Emma is always always always dancing. I personally, can not wait to sign her up for dance lessons one day.
I love her crazy hair that no matter how much we tame it, it becomes unruly in no time. I hope her curls stay forever.
She is a sweet girl with a huge heart and so caring. She's a spitfire. She is a wonderful addition to our family.
Recently, I took her out to do her 2 year old pictures. And I will say, she loved every minute of being in a pretty dress and having some one-on-one time with her mama, hamming it up for the camera. These images truly capture who she is now. But my absolute favorites were when she was getting tired. When she began sucking her thumb and playing with her neck. This is something she always does, but I know it won't last forever. But it is something that I love about her.
Happy 2nd Birthday, sweet baby girl!
We love you so much and we are so excited to watch you grow.
