This is a blog to keep up with our crazy life. Emilia Grace is a little spitfire....seriously. The Dr. calls her "spirited." She is all sass. Every day is an adventure of some sort, so this is a great way to share it.
Well, I have to say that potty training has gone better than I had expected. She has adapted well to panties during the day and she finally let me get a pull up on her at night. This morning she woke up and was ready to go potty right away, she was dry! She had held it all night! I was so proud of her. Yesterday, she had no accidents at school, but had 2 once we got home. I hope that she makes it this morning with no accidents before school. We may have this done sooner than I expected. I am so proud!
Well, I don't have any pictures to show, but I wanted to update you guys on what's been going on with us.............not much!
We are getting ready to go to MS, woohoo! We don't have much planned, which is kind of nice. We are going to a friend's house for food and fun on Friday night and the game on Saturday, but other than that, we don't have any plans.
Emilia is just getting so smart. I tell you, she amazes us with the things that come out of her mouth. She got a boo-boo on her knee several weeks ago and we are still putting band aids on it, not because she needs it, but because she insists that it needs one, even though the band aide goes no where near where the boo-boo was. The other night, when she actually needed one, I asked her if she wanted me to put it on and she says "no right now, mommy." What!?!?!? Where did that come from. And her latest is "leaf me 'lone, mommy." This goes right a long with what she used to say, which was "go night-night, mommy."
She is obsessed with her Uncle Craig's pets, Trapper and Dominick. She is also in love with Delta, her Aunt Debbie and Uncle Frank's dog. She talks about them all the time. She has become quite the little chatter box. She talks about all kinds of thing. She is even still talking about Amber, who stayed with us a month ago. She says "see amber soon." I can't tell her that she is going to see Amber again in November, she would be pestering me nonstop if she knew that.
I even found out that there is a little boy that she follows around at school. Could this be her first crush? It is too cute. For the longest time, she talked about Jacob and sang Happy Birthday to him all the time. Now I find out that she follows Heath around...she is boy crazy already. Sheesh!
She is getting so cuddly. She likes to snuggle in my arm pit while we watch cartoons and she curls up in this little ball. She can be so sweet. She is still a mama's girl, which makes me happy and so frustrated at the same time. I try to slow down and take a step back because I know it won't be like this all the time and I will miss this not to long from now, but for right now, I am eating it up. I now know all about Handy Manny, Dora, Diego and the Backyardigans because of this. She never watched TV until probably August and now she watches it all the time. Dora is by far her favorite.
I love my little nugget to death! She is the coolest kid I have ever met. I know all parents think that bout their kid. To clear things up, I have met some pretty cool kids, I mean, really cool kids, but she is by far the coolest to me!
