We had a recent trip to the Wisconsin Dells.
Emma got to hang out with her buddy Alesha as well as Alesha’s big sister Brittany. Emma enjoyed the waterparks but was a bit overwhelmed by all the wild kids splashing and the noise. We went to a quiet area and Emma was right at home going in and out of the water. I took these pictures while we were there.
Emma has been picking up all of our sayings and is surprising us at random times by saying them. Here are some of them…..
“Wait a minute”
“I got it”
And…My Favorite: “Hey Ken!” Yes, she heard Melissa calling me and now she sometimes calls me not by “Hey Daddy” but by “Hey Ken!” Too funny!!!!
For the last few years I have stocked up on some kids DVDs. Emma has come to like, no love, one of them. She wants to watch it everyday and seems to be engrossed in the action everytime. I am afraid that she is addicted to it now. That movie is <em><strong>Finding Nemo</strong></em>. She really loves it and passes on The Lion King, Happy Feet, Numerous Disney titles, and even her all-time favorite show, Hi5.
Emma likes to play with toys. One that she has taken a liking to is Mr. Potato Head, or as she says it, Misterbataboohead. Too cute!
Since she turned two a few months ago, Emma has become a little chatterbox. It is cool to see her expression, concentration and animation when she tries to explain something to us. She just goes on and on then changes to another subject and starts over. I am blessed to have the honor of witnessing this on a day to day basis. Although I feel somewhat constricted or contained, I couldn’t think of anything more important that I could be doing.
