Emma the Diva

I took Emma to Kiddie Kandids today for her 4-year shots. As I helped her get her dress on in the bathroom at the mall, she asked me "Mom? Will people tell me how pretty I am in my dress?" I said probably not, but I bet everyone will be thinking it. That seemed to satisfy her and as we were walking to Kiddie Kandids a grandma pointed to Emma and told her two young granddaughters to "look at the pretty girl." Emma looked up at me with the biggest smile on her face. It made her day. Yesterday we went to Burlington Coat Factory and there are these mirrors at the end of each aisle. Emma was walking ahead of me and didn't realize I was watching her. At each mirror she would stop, stare at herself, blow herself a kiss, and then move on to the next mirror. Oh my! Jake and I are in for trouble with this one... I'm sure of it. I bought her a pink headband at The Children's Place today. Tonight she came running out of her room in her pink pajamas and new headband and said "Mom, I LOVE my new headband because it's pink and it matches my pajamas. I just looked in the mirror and I look SO pretty." She's definitely a girl, a very confident one. ;)

Oh my goodness, what a doll! I'm so jealous of her long beautiful hair, and the dress looks so adorable. I love how sassy and confident she is. She's definitely your child!

She is so beautiful. Not only outside, but her inside beauty shines thru as well. We are so blessed to have each of you in our family.

Hugs,

Emma you look beautiful! Both Hannah and Isabelle said that and they love the dress on you. I think it is safe to say you plan on keeping it? Hopefully, you like the dress, if not let me know and I will still return it for you!

Uh Oh! I think she is an older version of my Kate, but I have to admit, I kinda love it!

Emily said...

When she looks like that who can blame her. We can all use that kind of confidence in our lives. Go Emma!

She is so cute! I can't believe she is so big already. I remember you had her shortly after we moved in to the University apartments.

She's cute! I can't believe she is 4! She looks quite a bit like you, Jamie.

Haha! She is SO adorable! I think her and Meg would be best friends...until they start fighting over boys...we are in for trouble too...

Cheri said...

She is darling, and I can see you doing the same thing when you were 4! Also, can you believe we are married to 30 year olds! I feel older and older all the time. Where did 20 go?
