My sweet and silly girl.....

These days Emma keeps me in constant laughter/tears with things she says! It's amazing how she can make my mood do a complete turn around with on of her "simple expressions."

Emma is having a little separation anxiety problem these days when it comes to going to school..only when I drop her off and when i'm out of sight she's fine. Well yesterday we were pulling up to school and she started crying, so I told her it was okay, that she would have fun with her friends and her teachers were very nice and loved her! Her response was "But they don't love me like you do mommy" about rip your heart out!!! Let's just say it was very hard for me to walk her in there after that, but she was fine and had a great day!

Also from yesterday...I picked her up from school and as we were driving home she was telling me what she had learned.... She informed me that Red=Stop, Green=Go and Yellow=HONK HONK HONK..pretty cute. This is the killer.....they say prayer each day before eating lunch and I have asked her several times how it goes and she always says "I can't bemember (remember)" It's the simple prayer we all know...."God is great, God is good, let us thank him for our food, Amen" Well yesterday she finally remembered and this was her version... "God is great, God is good, please don't take our food, Amen"!!!! I literally almost peed my pants I was laughing so hard and asked her to say it again to make sure I heard her right, and I did!

Another funny that comes to mind is from the Backyardigans....There is a song one of them sings and the chorus says "I want my river bath" and Emma sings it like this.."I want my Razorbacks" LOL She really thinks that's how it goes and always says "Harkansas Razorbacks" at the end!

I could go on forever! That's my silly little girl..

Rainy Day Photo Fun.....

Well yesterday was absolutely BORING around here!!! The weather was nasty so we just stayed indoors. I got tired of staring at the walls and playing on the internet, so when Grant woke up in a great mood, I decided to have some fun! He was all smiles and laughs which made for some cute pictures. Emma woke up from her nap and decided to join in on the fun.

"I'm a big girl now mommy"

Well today Emma reached another milestone....her first day of "school!" Today was her first day at Lots O' Tots daycare (Jill's mom owns it) and she LOVED it! She will be going 2 days a week and I think this will be good for me and her. When I went inside and dropped her off this morning, she walked right in and said "Good Morning Mrs. Cindy" like she had known her forever. Then she sat down and had a snack while I was filling out thing I know she had her chair pulled right next to this little girl and started talking away. My little girl doesn't have a shy bone in her body (wonder where she got that from? LOL) and made friends within the first 5 minutes!!! I told her I was leaving now and she gave me a hug and kiss and said "Bye mommy..see ya later" and off she went. She was on the playground when I picked her up and she was yelling "HEY that's my mommy" The teachers told me she was very good and she kept them laughing all day with her funny little sayings...that made me feel good!!! On the way home she preceeded to tell me "I'm a big girl now and I go to school"...pretty cute! She is in her room watching T.V. now and is looking very relaxed...I have a feeling she will be in bed early after her long day.....

Our "Big Boy"

This past week Grant has REALLY been trying to sit on his own. He still leans forward quite a bit, but he's definately getting there!! He HATES to lean back and always wants to sit upright so he can see everything!!

Bonding Time

Well it seems like this has become an afternoon ritual and I must say it is the sweetest thing!!! Every day after Emma's nap, she pics out a movie or finds something on T.V. and pulls her chair right next to Grant and they watch it together. Sometimes they even hold hands for a few minutes and Emma talks to Grant about her favorite parts of the movie. I can't help but just sit and watch sometimes...I am so in love with my babies!!!
