Randomness . . .

This is going to be a really random post about things I've wanted to blog about. I thought I'd just put them all into one post :)

A few days before Kate was born, Emmy and I were shopping. I found this white, plastic mask. Since she loves The Phantom of the Opera, I thought it would be fun for her to paint it and decorate it. She had a ton of fun painting it and she really liked wearing it at first . . .

Here she is in her "Christine dress" wearing the mask - she couldn't stop looking at it in the mirror, it was so funny!

I finally got her to stop looking at the mirror for a minute . . .

Then, Emmy realized that she's Christine and Christine doesn't wear the mask, the Phantom does. She's really into make believe lately, and daddy is the Phantom or the Prince. So she really likes daddy to wear the Phantom mask (which Jake absolutely loves . . . so much so that he hides the mask so Emmy doesn't see it and make him wear it).

Our friends, Mike, Jessica and Max, were over the other night. Emmy was wearing another one of her "Christine dresses" and Max decided he wanted to wear a dress, too. He kept getting this weird look on his face like maybe he shouldn't be wearing a dress, but it didn't stop him from wearing it! It was so funny! And, of course, Jake in the Phantom mask that he loves oh so much :)

Ever since we brought the baby home, Emmy likes to pretend she's a baby. So I gave her a binky all her own and so she uses it when she's pretending she's a baby . . .

She kept trying to steal the baby's binky, so it worked better to let her have her own

Just look at those chubby cheeks! I love kissing and kissing them!

The three girls!

I love it when Kate is awake . . . during the day, that is. It's hard to be enthusiastic about her being awake when it's the middle of the night and I just want to sleep!

Isn't she just beautiful?

Emmy absolutely LOVES her little sister. She's always concerned about where "baby sister" is and she always wants her to be awake. She loves touching her cheeks face and head and loves giving her kisses. I just have to keep reminding her to be soft with baby Kate.
I walked into the baby's bedroom the other day to find the girls like this on a blanket on the floor. It was so sweet! I had put Kate there for just a minute and Emmy just layed down next to her and started giggling.
