Oh my Emma Lou

Her real name is Emma Louise but she often hears the phrase "Oh my Emma Lou" as she crawls on my lap for some cuddles. She has a new hair do that I had been wanting for quite a while. Everytime I take her to the shop to get it cut the lady always tells me it's too thin to cut short and have it curl under. Well, while I was taking nap one day Emma decide to take matters into her own hands. So what she started her Dad eventually finsished. Yep, that's right. This lovely hairdo is her thanks to her Dad. And the bangs are straight, even though the picture doesn't look like it.

I need to journal more about my kids because I know these treasured memories will fade a little as time goes by. Emma is my child that would share her last piece of candy with you. She loves puzzles and organzing things. I have found her at the grocery store straightening the cans. I have yet to fully utalize this quality at home. If you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up, she consistently says a mommy. The other day we were shopping and she asked to buy this baby outfit that she thought was so cute. This was before we had told the kids I was pregnant, so I asked her why we should buy it. I'll save it for when I have a baby in my tummy was her response.

After telling the kids about my pregnancy Emma often rubs my tummy. She asked once if the baby could feel her rubbing my tummy.

Her latest craze is standing on her head. It's been at least a month since this fetish started and she's gotten quite good. It stated with her balancing against the couch upside down watching TV, but she's really strengthened her stomach muscles and has become quite the gymnist.

Woah! That's really really impressive! I thought that Roxanne was a good gymnast. Maybe you've got the next Shawn Johnson there!

I love your hair cut. It is very cute. You look like what I think an Emma Lou should look like. Not sure if that makes sense, but I guess that is to say the hair cut fits you. Love, grandma.

Love the hair, it really suits her. Between Roxanne, Emma and Elise this could be quit the aerobatic Christmas!
