Today, Emmy is the most vivacious 3 year old I know. haha! She's strong willed, clever, silly and very adamant that she gets her way. She's three, but most wouldn't have guessed. She acts much older and thus is treated older. It was only a few weeks ago that I myself had to remember she was only two.
Emmy was my easiest child. She was textbook easy. She continues to eat like a champ and sleeps more than 12 hours. She even gets a 2 hour or more nap in most days. Even as an infant, she had very few quirks about her. Emily was just that simple.
And then Emmy turned two. haha! This last year has proven, more than ever, that even if she was easy as a baby, she's going to make up for it in the coming years. Emmy is smart. Too smart for her own good. Nothing gets by my Princess. haha!
Emily loves to do school work, write and color, play games and build with blocks. She's fascinated with Dinosaurs and wants you to tickle and chase her. She really enjoys playdough and cooking as well. Her most imaginative play always comes across when she's tending to a baby of hers and is constantly wrapping the doll up in a blanket.
While she insists that she "can't do it" most days, she can dress herself from head to toe. She hates to have her hair brushed but likes having piggies too. Her favorite foods are any kind of noodle, hot dogs, sausage and cheese.
She has the most infectious laugh and the most sincere (and sometimes devilish) smile. When she's happy, the world is spinning as it should. Emily LOVES to sing and listen to music. She can even navigate YouTube on her own.
Three years ago today, a Thursday, I went back into the O.R. and couldn't wait to tell Izzy about her new little sister. As it turns out, I don't think Emmy could wait either. While most days the girls disagree about everything, they hate being apart. Izzy and Emmy were meant to have each other and I am so thankful they do.
So, Happy Birthday my sweet Emmy. May the coming year bring new adventures, lots of smiles and less time-out. LOL! We love you bunches!!
