Emma turned 3 yesterday. I can’t believe it. Even more surprising is she’ll be 4 next year! That is realy weird! So we had her party yesterday. We did the Princess theme although about two weeks before her party she wanted to change it to Dora although I had already bought everything. So the family came over and ate spaghetti casserole and then hung around until the other kids got there for the party at 3. Belle called at 3:30. Emma sort of got frozen when she called but you ask her what she says and she says, she says I’m 3 now. We did the pinata next and she pulled the last string and it came down on her head and she cried. The other kids liked it though. They were grabbing up candy and eating it. So we got her to quit crying by saying she could open her presents. Actually, we said she could open them after she did her (Princess castle) cake and she like ran over there and tried to blow out her candle before anyone even sang to her. She almost cried again when we were done singing but she held off. She ate without saying a word and then ran over to her presents. It was pretty cute. She is in love with her Dora house we got her. She woke up at 7:15 this morning wanting to go to the living room to play immediately. I think Lexi liked all the Dora stuff as much as Emma. She was just a snooted and laughing and patting everything. It was cute.
Lexi was sick with the croup and we had to take her to the ER on her birthday. When I took her to the dr. last week, she was terrified. We couldn’t even get her weight because she wouldn’t let go of me to sit on the scales. She said she was about 50% on everything though. I asked about how she couldn’t walk in shoes and he said it didn’t matter. So I guess I need to buy her some more Robeez. They aren’t the prettiest thing sometimes but she can walk in them!
A couple “Emma moments” the past few weeks I forgot to mention…
Skyler and Emma would not share the Dora doll. I gave Emma a big speech about how it made me sad and Jesus sad that she wouldn’t share. She never would share so I put Dora up. The next morning Dora doll was out and Lexi picked it up. Emma ran over to take it from her and then decided to share with her. She came and crawled up on the couch with me and said to me, Are you happy now? I about busted up laughing.
There were more moments but unfortunately I’ve forgotten them and haven’t had a chance to write them down.
Lexi is becoming such a ham and pretty demanding lately. She likes to yell where I really don’t remember Emma acting like that. I mean, she was impatient but I don’t remember the yelling and growling. She still isn’t saying anything very clearly. But the dr said as long as she could understand what you were saying, she probably was fine. She follows commands like come on or go get your blankie, etc. so I’m pretty sure she’ll have no problems. I think it’s just because Emma talks SO much she can’t get a word in edgewise.
