Emmy has a fun little kitchen in her room that she can play in all the time. The only problem is the BIG mess she makes!!! And you know what a big mess means . . . mom will be cleaning it up! She does help put the fruit back. She's such a good little helper. Here is what the playtime process looks like:

Having fun throwing everything around . . .

Why does she look like she's been "caught"?
Aaaah . . . mom feels much better when the room has been cleaned up!

Seriously, not more than 10 minutes later, we're back to where we started . . . all in a days work!

County Fair

A couple weekends ago we went to our local county fair with our friends, the Corsers. It's always fun to go the the county fair! Here are the highlights:

Elliot, Emmitt (Emmy calls him "Emmip") and Emmy on their chairs waiting for the parade to start before the fair

Jake and Grant getting into the cage to ride The Zipper. Emmy saw Jake get in the cage and started freaking out. It totally scared her! She didn't know what he was doing. Needless to say, she was really happy when the ride was over.

The famous fair ride, The Zipper!

Emmy and mommy going down the slide. She had a blast! She had the biggest smile on her face.

Emmy Update

Everyday just gets more and more fun with this cute little sweet pea!

She LOVES to sing (wonder where she gets that from . . . ). A couple of weeks ago we were running some errands. I have a cd w/ a bunch of songs that I like and never noticed Emmy singing along to it. Well, this day she started singing along to a bunch of the songs. It was hillarious! Some of the songs she knows are:

- Miley Cyrus, See You Again
- David Archuleta, Imagine
- Shout! (don't know the artist)
- Timbaland, The Way I Are
- Abba, Honey, Honey
- Fergie, Big Girls Don't Cry
- Songs from Hairspray
- Songs from Enchanted
- Songs from Pete's Dragon
- Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
- Itsy Bitsy Spider
- Popcorn Popping

She is also talking more and more, learning new words everyday, and she's starting to talk in sentences. The ones she uses the most are:

- "Is it scary?!" (she loves scary things right now . . .)
- "Are you ok?"
- "I hold you?" (when she wants me to hold her :) )

And instead of saying "yes," she says, "OK!!!" It's so cute, so enthusiastic.

She is starting to throw major tantrums, throw herself on the floor and roll around when she doesn't get what she wants. It's a great time.

Here are some of emmy's favorites:

- Favorite movie is Pete's Dragon.
- Favorite tv show is The Backyardigans
- Favorite food is Mac & Cheese (she asks for it for dinner, "Roni?")
- Favorite drink is Milk
- Favorite toy is her Glow Worm (she calls it her baby)
- She loves playing dress-up
- Favorite book is "Elmo & Abby Want to Play"
- She loves to color with a pen wherever she can - on herself, on a table and sometimes on paper

And something we just found out is that Emmy has some major food allergies. She's allergic to eggs, nuts, peas and (not a food allergy) cats & dogs. We're hoping knowing this and cutting out those things will help with her very dry skin. I'm ready for her to be able to not have to wear pants (she scratches and scratches her knees and feet when they're exposed). She's gotten better since we've cut out those foods, but not 100%. Hopefully it will just continue to get better!

Adam Sandler

Bet you didn't know that Emmy had Adam Sandler's hair from Wedding Singer, did you? It's all about the mullet . . .
