Today is Emma's 3rd birthday!! It's hard to believe our little girl is three years old. I remember her birth like it was yesterday. It was a scheduled c-section and the night before I was so excited and couldn't go to sleep. My mom was there and couldn't go to sleep either, so we stayed up and talked and she painted my toenails. On March 1st she was born at 11:53 AM, weighing 8 lbs. and was 20 1/2 inches long. She was such a sweet baby and adored her brother... still does. Take a look at a video clip from her birth (this was the first time I saw her.) I love you, Emma. Thanks for being my sweet and sassy little girl.
Her princess party went great. She had 6 friends over and they all had a good time, at least I hope they did. :) We played a version of musical chairs, except I used laminated pictures of the princesses and whoever landed on Cinderella when the music ended (Bibbity Bobbity Boo) was out and they got a prize. Then they had to go search for Snow White's poison apple. I hid 5 fake apples and one of them had a green bow tied to it (the poisoned one.) The kid who found it got a prize. Then I told the kids that princesses LOVE to dance so I cranked up "A Dream Is A Wish Your Heart Makes" (a recording of all the stars from the Disney Channel sing it) and the kids rocked out. It was fun watching them go crazy. And let's just say, Ben has some moves I had never seen before until today! :) The highlight of the party, though, was a visit from Snow White. The kids loved her and were enchanted by her. She sang songs, read them her story, played pin the crown on Cinderella, put lipstick and eye shadow on them, and then took a polaroid pic with each girl and gave it to them to take home. It was great!! Thanks to all of Emma's friends who came (Stella, Emerson, Katelyn, Jami, Sylvia, and Eliza) and a huge thanks to Snow White (Kendalyn, you're awesome!) HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Emma!
