My little baby girl isn't so little anymore. It feels like yesterday that I found out I was pregnant with Emma. Time flies so quickly. June 23rd she turned 4 years old. Emma is such a fun little girl. Some of my favorite things about her are...
-Every time she goes from the house to the car or from the car to the house it is a race between her and her dad. They have so much fun doing this. How every time she goes to the car with her dad it is a race.
-She loves to give her daddy hugs. She is definitely a daddy's girl.
-How every time she eats anything it is a race.
-Her smile can melt a heart.
-Emma loves to play with her little brother. They can play for hours together. They laugh their heads off. I love to see that they are truly best friends. I know that I have to cherish it now because soon enough she will be too good for him.
-How she tells on herself when she lies.
-She loves her friends. She always talks about them and looks up to them very much. Hopefully she can always keep good friends in her life.
-She loves to pray. I always see her praying in public, in private and even teaching her little brother how to pray. What a special memory.
-Emma loves Hannah Montana. She is always singing her songs and dancing like her.
-She loves to Sing. It is probably her favorite thing to do...she sings while she play's, she sings while she is getting dressed, she sings while she is falling asleep, she sings to her brother, she sings when she is in the car. She makes up songs about whatever she is doing or sings different words to songs she loves.
-Recently Emma has created an imaginary friend. Her name is Maudree (I think like audree). She always tells me about things that Maudree says to her and conversations they have. She plays with Maudree, she bathes with Maudree and she sleeps with Maudree.
-Emma loves al of her grandparents. She loves visiting them or talking to them on the phone. All of her grandparents are an important part of her life.
My Dad by Emma May 2009
I asked Emma similar questions around Mother's Day, so I figured that I would do it again for Fathers Day. Here are her answers:
I really love it when my dad works his job.
My dad likes to wear his BYU shirt and his BYU pants.
My dad always tells me, we can go to Mark's (a gas station) when Im his princess.
The best thing that my dad does is work.
It makes him happy when i eat lunch.
My dad loves to relax by my Emma.
I like it when he does something that he likes when me to do when we go to Mark's.
The best thing he cooks is pizza
When my dad shops he likes to buy fruit drinks.
My dad’s favorite household chore is clean up his room.
My dad’s favorite TV show is sports.
If he could go on a trip, he would go to College.
When my dad and I have fun we go to Disneyland.
I wish my dad could make a birthday cake.
I love my dad because he loves me.
I am glad that I have friends who love to get out together. We had a blast driving hte hour and a half there and back. We also stopped in for some lunch. If you have never had the chance to go to the Manti temple, I would suggest going. It is well worth the drive there.
Today he fell and hit his nose on a chair and it started bleeding.
Eric seemed pretty excited about it. Although we do not have a lot of space to hang it right now, Eric is really excited to have a house and eventually hang it in our basement.
Here are some more pictures from our visit to the park with our friends. The reason they are all of Marcus is because I had to chase him around. If I left his side he would have jumped off the top of the playground. Sorry to Emma for not catching all of her sand castle making.
While we were in California, the kids enjoyed some summer fun in my dad's backyard. They got their swim suits on, splashed in the pond (that now has a metal safety grate on it) and ran in the sprinklers. They had a blast in the 97 degree heat.
I believe the question was What is my favorite Disney Character.
Two of the choices were Ariel and Flounder. Most people guessed Ariel. They got the movie right, but as you can see in this picture, I use to have a Flounder doll. My little sister Tashly gave it to me before my first national meet. Ever since then I took it to every swim meet that I had. I made my friends put it onto my block after I dove in. I loved flounder. He is hilarious.
There's your proof!
