I guess the day is officially over and it is not her birthday anymore...with a house FULL of 12 and 13 year olds I am thinking tonight is going to be a LONG night and instead of lying in bed trying to sleep and getting annoyed I figured now would be a good time to pound out an "ode to Emily" post ! so here it goes...exhausted and a kinked neck so bare with me :)
Em had colic....not as bad as her big sister but she was fussy and her dad had to put her in her car seat and swing her back and forth to get her to settle down...thankfully her daddy is big and strong! She HATED car rides...when she was old enough to communicate we discovered that she had terrible car sickness and as an infant just screamed when we were in the car....yeah NOT so fun!!
Emily became a big sister at the tender age of 15 months old...can't say she was too happy about that and left a few marks and scratches on her little baby sisters face to let us all know how she was feeling! She had a texture issue which she has thankfully outgrown unlike her youngest baby sister! and if her socks were not perfectly lined up across her toes she would do a hibby jibby dance and scream and cry "my toes are fuzzy my toes are fuzzy"...thankfully she outgrew that! at least she learned to put her socks on herself the way she liked them!
She has always been an amazing student at school. All her teachers call her a rockstar! she organizes other kids desks as she cannot stand looking at the chaos... I honestly DO NOT know how she functions so well in our family!! her side of the room is always clean and organized...she knows where all her things are all the time...her homework is always neat and complete and handed in on time...I have woken up on a Sat morning to her sitting at the table doing her homework...committed diligent and responsible describe her to the core. It is no wonder that she wants to be a teacher when she grows up.
Happy Birthday 13th baby girl
