A few of my favorite Em things

When we sneeze, Em says, "Bless you."

Em no longer hates the pool. Her daycare has a kiddie pool, which she's learned to love. At our last swim lesson, she actually LAUGHED. She giggled at herself as she splashed around, and she laughed at the nearby classmates.

We pulled up to my in-laws' recently and Em squealed, "GRANDMA!" When we got inside, she frantically ran around, in search of Grandma and Grandpa.

She's a toddler-size mockingbird, which is amusing and potentially dangerous.

She loves to sing, and even better, she loves to sing loudly. Her favorite song is Twinkle, Twinkle, but she'll occasionally grace us with a rendition of Happy Birthday -- "Haaaaapppppy toooo yoooou. Haaaapppy toooo yooooou."

She still loves music class.

Her obsession with all things Yo Gabba Gabba continues, so I took her to a free "concert" at a nearby shopping center last week. We trekked across town and waited an hour in the sun for TWO songs and a, "Come out to our big Yo Gabba Gabba Live show in November! KTHXBYE!" As bitter as I was, it confirmed my suspicions that Em is going to LOVE the November show. She waved to the characters and yelled for Muno, the tall and red cast member.

Em enjoys coloring, but more than anything, she loves to remove and replace the crayons from the bucket again and again and again...

Finally, speaking of again...

"I don't get why parents are always complaining about how tough it is to raise kids. You joke around with them, you give them pizza, you give them candy, you let them live their lives... They're adults, for God's sake."
- Michael, The Office


  1. She is so adorable.........."again....again" - so sweet!

  2. I imagine Em and Brent can do this "again, again, again" forever. By the way, I LOVE that Em loves music class! Learning the piano is probably the most rewarding thing I did when I was a child.

  3. again! again! again! haha she is too darn cute.

  4. Awww i love that she loves yo gabba gabba. granted my only experience is knowing that celebs join the show every once and awhile :)

  5. I am dying over how cute Em is! Her little voice repeating "again"... I mean, how could you NOT do that again?

  6. Em just keeps getting cuter and cuter! She was saying again before the dip was even over! =)

  7. Em is the cutest thing ever. Her guitar face is much more adorable than some people we know.

  8. Ali is OBSESSED with Gabba as well... I am holding out on buying tickets when they come up North in November- hoping and praying she outgrows it by then!

  9. Such a little cutie pie!
