Hi Doodle Bopper!
You have lots of fun at gymnastics class. Here are a few photos…
I love you cute baby girl!
Hi Cute Girl!
You Mommy and I went out to supper tonight at Pizza Delight. You had chicken nuggets and fries. When you were done, you leaned over to my plate and grabbed a chunk of lettuce from my Caesar salad. We were surprised to see you eat lettuce. You kept grabbing lettuce and croutons, putting them in your mouth and standing up with a smile on your face and saying “yummmmm gooood”.
You kept standing up on the booth seat during supper. At one point, we told you that you have to sit down on your bum… you said “Ohhh sure mommy”. You’ve been saying “sure” lately. When we ask you if you want something, you say “yaaaaah sure” or “okkaay sure”.
Get On My Back Cameron
This evening, Cameron put you on his back and did some pushups. When you got down, you got in a pushup position and said “Get on my back Cameron”. He then pretended to sit on your back.
Taking Your Puffer
You’ve had a cough and a cold for a couple weeks now. Your cough got worse last week so we took you to the doctor. They prescribed a puffer for you. We’ve been giving it to you for a few days now. You used to had when we put the mask over your face, but now you do so great. You take deep breaths just like you’re supposed to.
But you still don’t like it sometimes. On the weekend a couple times, you fought us and said “no pupper”. Tonight after we layed down in bed, I asked you if you wanted to take your puffer.. and you said no. Then I said it would make you feel better.. and you softly asked “make my cough better?” … and I said yeah … then you said you wanted to take it. I gave you two puffs from each of your two puffers. You took great deep breaths … you did so great.
Helping Daddy Work – Iiiiii Liiiiiike It
This evening, I was installing some doorway thresholds … one in the bathroom and one at the deck door. When you realize I’m working, you often want to come and help. Tonight you came over and said “I help you Daddy” … and I said OK … you asked what I was doing and looked at the tools and equipment I had … a big smile came over your face and you said “Iiiiiiii liiiiike it”. You’re so funny. You helped me hold the drill while I drove some screws and drilled some holes. Other times when I’ve been working and you’d come to watch and help, you’ve said “great job Daddy!”.
You’re such a silly girl and I love you sooooo much!
Hi Little Girl!
I Can’t Lift Mine
On the way home this evening in the van, I had my hand on the armrest attached to my seat. I was fidgeting with it and moving it up and down. I then heard you grunting behind me. I looked back and you had your hand on the armrest of your car seat (which actually looks kinda like the arm rests on our seats)… and you were trying to lift it up like me. You were saying “uhhhhgghhh .. urrrrrrr … I can’t lift mine”.
A little while later, you were saying “akkkkseattts … akkkksseattts ?” I was wondering what you were saying. I asked you what a couple times, and you repeated what you were saying a couple times. I realized that you were asking “where are the backseats?” I had the two back seats beside you stowed in the floor. You were wondering where the seats were. I pointed to the floor and said, they’re in there. You then said “Ohhh, I’ll look for it”.
Today at work, I printed off scanned copies of the art you made back around December… the ones you did with your markers. I really like them. I have them up on my wall, beside the photo of you that was taken the day we got yours and Jenna’s photos done at Sears. Every time I look at your picture, I smile. Today, seeing your smiling picture reminded me of yesterday when you and Jenna were eating pizza in the living room … I was taking pictures of you and you stood up and said “cheeeeeeeeeese!!!” with a big smile on your face. Jenna joined in too and we were all saying “cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese!!”
When I picked you up at Nikki’s today, she said you kept telling her something today but she didn’t know what it was… you were saying you have something. She was trying to get you to tell me, and finally you softly said something … you were saying “I have a toy room”. The new house that we’re moving into has a separate dining room beside the kitchen that we’re planning to make a toy / arts and crafts room for you. I think we’ve told you about it… and you’re obviously pretty excited about it because you keep talking about it.
I love you little girl!
Hi Baby Girl!
We went to Jenna’s birthday party today. You and Jenna had a so much fun playing.
For a long while, you both were hanging out the living room window, being silly and yelling. You silly girls had a blast.
You cute girls took a break from eating pizza long enough to pose and say cheeeeezzzzze.
Yaaaaaaay! Hula hoops!
I love you cute silly girl!
Hi Little Devil!
Last night, you found a set of Halloween devil horns. You asked what they are so I told you that they were horns, like a cows. You were happy to put them on. You sure do look like a little devil.
We were sitting in the living room this morning. Devon was playing his Nintendo DS game, and it became loud. It got your attention, so you went over to him and asked “what are you doing? …. You doinnnn your home-wook?” Then you guys chatted back and forth for a while.
I Liiiiike It
You’ve been saying “Iiiiiiiiii Liiiiiiiiiiike it” and “Iiiiiiiii Looooooove it” lately. It’s pretty cute and funny.
Guess What Daddy
Tonight while I was laying in bed with you, you looked at me with a smile and said “Hey … guess what …. Daddy?”. I replied with a what, and then you said something but I’m not sure what it was … I think it was something about having a toy room in our new house… which is true … you will have a toy room in our new house. You asked me “guess what” a couple more times …. One other time you replied something about going to Jenna’s party tomorrow.
I said to you “Hey … guess what Emma?” When you replied “what”, I said “I love you” …. You smiled, then leaned over and kissed me on the lips.
Later, when you were up coughing, I was carrying you … I said “Hey … guess what Emma?” When you replied “what”, I said “I love you” …. You smiled, and pushed your cheek up against my lips for a kiss.
I love you little girl!
Hi Cute Baby!
First Swimming Lessons Done
Today was your last day of swimming lessons. You have fun as always. You never did pay attention to the class much. You preferred to run around in the pool and do whatever you decided you wanted to do.
Here is your ribbon and report card. You did an awesome job.
INSERT PHOTOS LATER
Today was actually a special day at swimming lessons. We got to go down the waterslide. You and I went down together twice. You were pretty excited and had a lot of fun. You weren’t one bit scared … even when we were sitting at the top waiting to go down …. Even on your second time down …. Even when we were flying down the slide … you had fun.
Luv u baby!
I love you little cutie!
Yeah, so..... the child proof gadgets on your dresser aren't too Emma-proof. It wasn't long after we put them on (many many months ago), that you figured out how to open them. You either open and close the drawer until it pops, or you pick it with your fingers like you're doing in this picture. You're such a smart baby.
It wasn't easy, but I continued to wash the dishes around you. You kept grabbing wooden spoons and cups from the washed pile and playing with them in the water. You kept pouring cups of water, sometimes on yourself and all over the floor. There was so much water at one point, I had to move you and clean it up. You were pretty upset that I took you down off the stool... but I spoke to you sternly and told you that I had to clean up your mess that you made and that you could go back when I was done.
Don't Push Me
While I was sopping up your mess, you took a couple casual steps toward me, gave me a little push on my shoulder and stepped back. You did this twice. It was kinda like a spiteful little push. So I reached over and gave you a little push on the shoulder. You responded in a slightly high pitched voice, "dooon pusssh meeee". Its so funny when I head you say something for the first time. I don't even know where you learn these things.
Anyway, you played for a bit longer, and then needed to drink from a cup that you filled from the tap several times, then I pulled the plug. You whined a bit, but were OK.
You're In My Way
I was putting some wood in the fire place when I heard you say "dadddeeee, you're innn myy waaayy". You were on the couch watching Iggle Piggle on In the Night Garden and were cranky that I got in your way. You also said "Iiii cannnntt seeee". Oh, you're a cute one.
Swimming At Nikki's
When we picked you up this evening, Nikki started swinging her arms like she was swimming and asked if I knew what it meant. She said you were running around the house today swinging your arms like you were swimming. I told her that you've been taking swimming lessons and were doing that last night. It all made sense to her then. You silly girl.
Piggy Back Ride
Tonight, and a few other times before, you climbed up onto my back for a piggy back ride. I was sitting on your bed when you did it tonight. You hold on tight around my neck and I stand up, you say "hollddd onnnn". You then went for a ride on Cameron's back.
Popping Open The Child Locks
A blog for our very own baby Emma - to tell her about all the things she does and to remember all the mile stones along the way.
