Emma woke up very hungry this morning! She ate two waffles, half of my bowl of oatmeal, and then some "O's and milk." It was interesting watching her eat cereal, while Jack the cat circled underfoot. Jack likes to pester and beg for the leftover milk in a bowl of cereal. It was pretty funny seeing Jack hop up on the table for the milk, and Emma saying, "No Jack...Jack down!"
Emma's Version: Dada served me a great big breakfast this morning. I was so hungry and I even got to eat some "O's and milk" in a cereal bowl. It seems like I always drip some milk (and a few O's too) off my spoon into my lap. I keep telling Dada "Uh, Oh!", but he ensures me that it is OK. Jack was so funny at breakfast. He kept talking and talking and saying meow. Then he jump all the way from the floor to the table and tried to get my "O's and milk." I had to shoo the cat away and finish my breakfast. I was so hungy!
Em decided today would be the day to get out all of her old art work from school. She was very impressed with herself while looking at all the pictures she had painted or colored. She even decided she would make some finishing touches on some of her artwork. I guess an artist is never truly done!
Today my buddy Landon came and visited me! We decided we wanted to go to the zoo; so we went! I have to brag for a second --I rode the merry go round without crying!! I was so proud of myself!
We walked around and looked at the animals but the end of the trip was my favorite and Landon's favorite as well. We rode the choo choo train!! It was a bright red train that had a loud horn and a nice conductor! We wanted to ride a second time but our parents vetoed that plan.
After a short nap and lunch we went to the park before Landon had to go back home. Hope to see you soon Landon!!
Waiting on the train to start moving!
Emma had a small party last night! She woke up wanting to eat and then was not quite ready for bed. Brad was the participant in the party last night. Let's hope these parties calm down!!
In other news, Em has decided to eat apples.. straight off the core. Note that fruit and veggies are not commonly agreed upon by Emma but we will take the apple!
Last night I had another party! This time I decided I had so much fun at my party the night before that I would let this one last until 2:30 in the morning!! I got to go on 2 car rides, read multiple books and even got to go look for the moon three times!!
I'm not sure if Mom was excited about my party but I had fun!
I am off this week!!!
Me, my mom and Em are going to Baton Rouge as soon as Emma gets out of school today to spend a few nights with the Wiley family!
When we arrived Syd and Em hugged and went straight to the trampoline! They jumped and jumped and we thought they would go to bed without a hitch.. we were wrong. After two car rides (one for each girl) they both slept the night away.
Today was quite a day!! We started off buying shoes for me and Sissy. We then got to eat pizza for lunch followed by no nap!! After no nap time we went to the mall to ride the merry go round and eat ice cream!!! Mom even got to do a little shopping for her birthday that is coming up next month. While mom shopped me and Syd were able to ride around in these cool strollers that looked like fire engines!!
You would think that me and Syd would be tired tonight but I foresee another car ride in my future!
the nap time that never happened!
Showing off our dancing skills.
Emma was correct in her prediction regarding the car ride. Yet, a funny thing happened. 1 hour into our car ride and Emma still wide awake I decided to lay down the law. I told Emma we were going back to Sissy's house, Emma was going to go to bed in her crib without fussing. We got home and as soon as we pulled in the drive way Emma said, " go to sleep, no fuss" and she did just that! Went to sleep without one peep!
I guess I should have tried that approach long ago!
I sure was glad to see dada tonight after church!! I showed dad all my new shoes then we got all my stickers out and put them all over the floor!! I sure do love my dada!
I almost forgot, I got to pet the church cat, pretty, while we were at church. I tried to pick Pretty up but she ran away. I'll try again Sunday! Watch out Pretty!
