Sweet Little Details:
This month Emerson has become even more obsessed with saying I love you. She says it to Jesse and me at least 50 times a day, especially after a kiss. She also liked to say it to strangers. That's habit we're trying to discourage. ;)

She has also become more emotional and easily gets her feelings hurt if she doesn't get what she wants. Instead of getting mad, she will cry.

She has become even more verbal and can repeat just about any word we say. There is nothing better than hearing her sweet little voice.

I have noticed that she is starting to observe us carefully and copy what we do. I painted her toenails a few days ago. Later that day she found a tube of chapstick and pretended to paint her toenails. I call her our little sponge because she seems to just soak in everything she sees and hears.

She can name most parts of her body and most animals and their sounds. She is crazy about animals so I think another trip to the zoo is much needed.

She has also become quite the climber and her arms have become Go-Go gadget arms. She can reach almost anything she wants from the table if we don't scoot it to the middle.

Sunglasses and hats are her favorite accessories and she will gladly keep both on. That's Momma's girl!

She is obsessed with music and will ask me to turn it on throughout the day. She also loves TV and has figured out how to turn it on with the remote or the button on the TV. Little stinker! ;)

To say that we love this little girl just doesn't do it justice. She is the light of our lives!
