A Little About Our Little Girl

January 13, 2013

This is the face of a little girl who didn't eat her dinner but insists she still needs a cookie... and then she gives her daddy a little smile, strokes his cheeks with her tiny hand, and get's her cookie... 
Emily: "Mommy, say 'let me go!'"
Me: "let me go..."
Emily: "Nev-ahhhhhhh!!! Muah ah ah!"

Emily is the sweetest little girl. She loves to stroke our faces and whisper the sweetest little things before she gives us kisses. But she is very particular about those kisses too. You have to have her permission before you give her one. When she gives you a kiss, it will probably be on your forehead. She'll move your hair back and then count to three and give a sweet soft little pucker. And if she wants to give you another one she will whisper, "I give you one more right there..." and point to another place on your face.
She has recently discovered a love of jumping. She jumps and jumps with no real reason other than just to jump. And she is always so proud and eager to hear our praises when she finishes her little jumping spells. When she jumps she does a huge squat, pushes off as hard as she can, holds her breath, and barely gets 2 inches off the ground. When she comes back down she lands with straight legs on the heals of her flat feet and lets out a big sigh of relief. It's pretty much the cutest.

I loved that "learning to jump" phase. It's hilarious.
