Emmy Update

I've been in a little bit of a blogging rut lately. With the holidays and having family around, we were pretty busy, and now I'm just out of the habit, I guess! And I haven't really been taking many pictures lately.

So to get me out of this rut, I wanted to post about Emmy. She is growing up so much and just gets cuter everyday. Here is what she has been doing lately:

- She loves to sing and make up songs. She just sings about random things - cleaning, marshmallows, anything she can think of!

- She also loves to sing "Twinkle Twinkle" and "I am a child of God." The other day, after we put her down for a nap, we could hear her singing (loudly) a song from Pete's Dragon. And, of course, she loves to sing the songs from the Disney movies.

- The terrible two's are definitely hitting hard these days. She loves to throw a good tantrum when she doesn't get her way.

- Her favorite TV show is Max and Ruby. She asks to watch it ALL the time! We have been cutting back on TV time, so she doesn't get to watch it as often as she'd like (or as I'd like sometimes . . .)

- Her favorite foods are macaroni & cheese, chicken nuggets, apples and fruit snacks. Her favorite drink is milk.

- She loves to make me "food" in her kitchen. It's usually eggs, strawberries and juice :)

- Everywhere we go, people just love Emmy! She's got such a spunky and outgoing personality, she makes friends wherever she goes.

- She always calls older women "grandma". It is so funny! We'll be in the grocery store and she'll just yell out, "Grandma!" Of course, the old ladies love it :)

Emmy is such a special little person for us to have in our home. She brings challenges and joys everyday. And I know she will be such a fun big sister!

Singing must be in her genes. I'm glad Ellie's not the only one with the crazy tantrums. That's so cute that she call old ladies,"Grandma."
She's such a sweetie!
