Emma's 5th Birthday

It seems like we have been really busy around here. I meant to post on Wednesday about Emma turning 5 and I didn't.

So, here it goes.
Not only is Emma growing in age, but her personality is growing as well. She is becoming
her own person. I love seeing her as an amazing big sister, a dedicated daughter and of coarse a loving friend. She is always the 'motherly' friend. Not only is she a friend to the kids her age, but she loves all of the younger children in our neighborhood.
She is becoming so independent. She will have nothing to do with her mother telling her how to match her clothes. She Loves shopping. Let's just say that Emma and Grandma Terre are a dangerous combination.
On her 5th Birthday she told me that she was a big girl now and wanted to learn how to ride a bike without training wheels. And she did (mostly).
She use to be very hesitant, but she is starting to become a little more daring. She is learning to swim on her own and even picks up the ants she finds in our house just to make sure they find a safe place outside.

Friday was Emma's 'Real' Birthday (as she says) because she had a Birthday Party.
We decided to do a Rainbow theme.
Emma had fun playing with her friends and making lifelong memories.
