I'm Three, and I'm Cute.

Emma had her 3-year-old pix taken last week out to the Kiddie Kandids. Oh my, what a difference from last year, when the photog could hardly catch her still for more than a second or two. This time around she was downright coquettish. The guy taking her picture this year said that kids are really hard to photograph between ages 1-1/2 and 2-1/2, but 3 is a great age because they'll pose but their smiles haven't become artificial yet. Thought that was an interesting observation from one who knows. Anyway, hope you enjoy these loverly photos.
Note the stamp on her hand from Costco.

And to close, a couple cute Emma stories from recently.
- We were driving past a McDonald's the other day and she pointed to it and said, "Old McDondald, e-i-e-i-o!"
- I was outside and she yelled "Mom, come here!" (on Emma that sounds like "Come eee-uh!" Sounds like she's from Brooklyn). Anyway, I came inside and she said "Thank you for obeying."
- We made cupcakes the other day then walked around the neighborhood giving them out to neighbors and random passersby. It was a warm day and Emma kicked off her sandals, which I held along with the cupcakes. Then we walked up to a friend's house and her little boy (6-ish) was out in front playing. After taking a cupcake, he went inside and tearfully told his mother that "Emma doesn't have any shoes...We need to get Emma some shoes." [This I learned later from his amused mom.] And then he knelt down and said a prayer for Emma! His mother assured him that Emma probably had shoes and just decided not to wear them. But isn't that a tenderhearted little boy?
That's all for now....
