Emmy Update

I haven't posted about Emmy in a while, so I thought I'd sen dyou guys a little update on what our little one is up to.

First and foremost, she is very opinionated and let's you know when she does or doesn't like something in a big way.  And if she doesn't like it, this is mostly likely what you are going to get.

But, most of the time she is a happy, lively girly girl who LOVES the Gamecocks...

Her daddy - they chase each other all over the house.  At one point she'll be a monster and chasing him, then they will change roles and she'll be Little Red Riding Hood and Daddy will be the Big Bad Wolf.  It brings a smile to my face all the time.

Animals of any kind - she asked to watch animal videos at least once a day

The song Amazing Grace - this has been her request for us to sing before bedtime for the past two weeks and we also have it on a CD that she asks to listen to over and over again if we are riding in the car.

Fairy Tales - For Emmy's second birthday I found a fairy tales book at TJ Maxx for $4.  She became very fond of the stories, but after reading all 14 stories over and over at bedtime, Daddy got a little bored (especially since all the stories in this particular book are princess related).  So, we set out to find another fairy tales book with new stories.  And we found it at Barnes & Noble.  It was a different book, but written by the same author and included stories like, The Three Little Pigs, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Jack and the Beanstalk etc.  Perfect!  Except this one was not $4.  It was $20.  But we got it anyway and I'm pretty sure we have already gotten our moneys worth.  She loves both of them.

Due to all the fairy tale reading, Emmy has had such an active imagination lately.  It is so fun to play her little games and try to figure out what she is thinking.

Her appetite has gotten much better lately as well.  

She LOVES babies!  Talking about babies, playing with her babies, singing to babies, acting like a baby, asking questions about babies.  It spawned from Aunt Crissy's pregnancy and lately I've had a lot of newborn photos shoots to do so the babies come to our house for their photo shoots.  She is surrounded by babies.  She has asked many times when Aunt Crissy's baby will come out and if mommy has a baby in her belly.  It makes my heart so happy to know that she will be excited for mommy to have a baby in her belly if it does end up happening again.

Like I said before, her imagination is amazing.  When she talks about animals or plays with her baby dolls or Noah's Ark, or her horses, they all have a role (ie mommy, daddy, baby, granddaddy etc).  It is so cute.  We were watching the fish jumping at Ama and Bopa's house the other day and she kept saying how the mommy and daddy fish were getting food for their baby fishies.  SO CUTE!!! 

She is at such a fun age and I love every minute I get to spend with her.  Seeing her learn new things all the time and put sentences together blow me away sometimes.  I can hardly wait for her wake up in the mornings when I'm off work so we can spend as much time together as possible.
