Emma's World Vol. 1

Emma is the youngest of our three and true to the "baby of the family" stereotype, she makes herself known. Whether we are at home or out running errands, she is always saying or doing something that makes us laugh. 

Because of this, I've decided to start a blog series titled Emma's World and share with y'all some of the funny things she does and says. Also, it will be nice to go back when she's older and enjoy the stories all over again.

So here's the first installment of Emma's World!

Just a little fact about Emma, she doesn't really walk, she can, but she usually doesn't. She prefers to skip, jump or twirl to get to where she's going. She's recently even started walking on her hands at home. Now I'm just waiting for her to attempt going up or down the stairs like that. Sigh.


During our recent trip to Kentucky to meet my sweet new nephew Alasdair, Emma asked before meeting him for the first time "Are his eyes open yet?". Um, Emma, he's not a puppy.

During the same trip, we were riding with my sister and my mom says to Emma, "It's like riding a roller coaster when your Aunt Amy drives.". Which Emma responded by putting her hands in the air and saying, "I can't wait to go upside down!"  My mom answered, "I hope not!"

Recently we went to the movies and saw The Odd Life of Timothy Green, in which one of Timothy Green's soccer coaches name is Coach Cal. Emma leaned over and whispered to me, "Just like Coach Calipari mom!" That made this University of Kentucky, men's basketball lovin' momma's heart happy! GO BIG BLUE!!

So, there ya have it, Emma's World Vol. 1.  I'd like to think this will be a monthly series, but with as much as she gives me, it could be daily.

Back to school

I can't believe summer break is over, it went by way to fast.

So here we are, the first day of school. The house is empty and quiet. I'm feeling a little sad, and there is only one thing to help with that and that's to eat a cupcake for breakfast. :)

There were no tears this year. Although while I waited with Emma at her school, I felt tears welling, so I snapped a picture, gave her a hug and kiss and hit the road!

Unfortunately it was raining this morning, so all the cute, outdoor back to school picture ideas I got from Pinterest didn't happen. Instead, I got some great indoor, fluorescent lighting back to school pictures! (Insert sarcasm here.)

So, here's to the upcoming school year with the inevitable rushed mornings, forgotten lunch boxes and the after school, happy to be home hugs!
