Since I'm doing general updates, let's go for another, this time Emily style. Here's Emily rocking her shades and favorite hat for her first day of preschool. That's my girl. She's learning a lot there, and I'm proud of her.
Playing with blankets is her other deep love. She rolls them up and makes a "couch" (pictured). She spreads them on the ground and asks me to turn on music so she and Elliot can run in circles on them. She requests forts. She makes beds for Elliot using couch cushions. She plays peekaboo. She does anything she can think of that involves blankets.
Other than that, she gets really excited when I let her help me do laundry and unload the dishwasher. She's getting more confident talking to adults - she'll now whisper to most adults, not just a select few. We'll work on talking to them. She really enjoys singing. And she's growing and growing.
