Life with a Toddler

Emmy keeps us so entertained these days...smiling and giggling at her silly Daddy, chasing kitties, pushing her little cart, and jumping on the couch are daily events around here.  Today, she was sitting in her carseat, waving madly at the road behind us and saying "bye-bye"!  She says "ba" when she'd like to toss the ball around, and today learned "poo-pey" when Mommy was changing her diaper.  She proceeded to say it for the next 20 minutes, as she was playing with blocks.  She's learning to use her spoon & fork, and seems to be getting the messy hang of it...although it's still WAY easier to just dip your hand into the applesauce than spoon it up.  She walked between Keith and I tonight at the video store, holding our hands and giggling.  Such a big girl!  No independent steps yet, but the day is closing in...don't worry, the camera is ready.

Back on Track

Hi All!  It's been a while since I blogged, but life got a little hectic after the break-in.  We've now got the security system in, window fixed, insurance stuff worked out, and are slowly replacing items.  It's a total bummer having to work through all this stuff, as it's a major time-suck.  As if we didn't have anything else going on in our lives!  

Emmy is over her cold, and off antibiotics.  She's such a fun little squirt, we can't get enough of her.  The personality is really starting to shine, and she's a total ham.  She giggles all the time, stands/cruises around all over, and loves to "hide" so we can find her.  She obviously understands a lot of what we say to her, and if asked, will go get a specific book, and then crawl onto my lap for a story.  It's so totally sweet.  She remains the "Daycare Bully", in spite of being the youngest one there.  She makes all the other kids cry by taking their toys.  Typical toddler mentality..."if I want it, it's mine...if you have it, it's mine...if I see it, it's mine".  I guess we need to start working on manners next!  

We're looking forward to Easter, and Em's Easter basket.  We'll see what she thinks about hunting eggs, and finding treats.  I suspect it will be a hit.
