Wow, where do I even begin? 3 years (well, 3 years as of this Monday)? Already?
My little Emmy (I'm uncertain on stats, her appt isn't until the end of the month. But I believe she's weighing in around 33#) is soooo full of life. Unless she's throwing a tantrum, she is the happiest little person around.
I'm using her 2 year old post as a template, and despite my sleep deprived state I hope to think of more to add.
FAVORITE SONG(S): Any made up song to the tune Frere Jacques, the "Goodnight Olivia" song, "Lord's Army", "Downtown" by Petulia Clark, "Party in the USA" by Miley Cyrus, "Call Me Maybe" by Carly Rae Jepsen and still anything Johnny Cash.
FAVORITE FOODS: Nutella, Goldfish, Angry Birds shaped Graham Crackers and Ketchup (which she calls keputch or kep-e-uptch-e)
FAVORITE OBSESSIONS: walking right up to Nora's face and yelling "hey" 100x in a row, doing everything "by my own" unless of course we ask her to do it on her own- then she needs help, using scissors and cutting things you aren't supposed to at moments when you shouldn't, play dough, acting completely dejected when told no, turning the light switch to off at bedtime, YouTube, making messes but not wanting to clean them up, bubbles, ... to be continued as I remember more!
FAVORITE BOOK(S): "llama llama zippity zoom", mainly because one line says "llama llama BOP" and BOP is emmy's made up word that she uses in place of everything and "All By Myself" by Mercer Mayer
FAVORITE WORDS/PHRASES: "hand-tizer" (hand sanitizer, but we only allow you to use it when we are out and about or else you would empty a bottle in a day), "You guys are my buddies" (always accompanied by a forceful neck hug), Noria, "But I didn't touch the potty" (when she doesn't want to wash her hands in the bathroom...nice try, never works), "______ is yucky" (when she doesn't want something: graham cracker, milk, a book, a treat...anything), "that's a good idea!"and "OK" after we explain something to you
FAVORITE SHOWS: Strawberry Shortcake, Dora, Olivia and The Lion King (which we turn on almost every single day. We never make it all the way through. Her favorite part is "Hakuna Matata")
You are a sweetheart with a strong will and independent yet still a needy little being. You love with your whole heart and your little sister's eyes light up every time she sees you (even though you yell in her face and pull on her head and hair...sigh). You make the funniest faces and can be SO dramatic. What can we say? You are 3, this is all typical. We remember vividly the day we brought you home. Never in my wildest dreams could we have imagined what life would be like 3 years later. Deciding to have you is hands-down one of the best decisions we ever made. We are so thankful God chose us to be your parents. We love you.
Mommy & Daddy
