Happy Birthday sweet Emma-girl!  What a fun two years this has been!  You are so full of energy and personality.  You are a constant source of joy and entertainment. 
You are also stubborn.  You know exactly what you want and won't stop until you get it.  You can express yourself well.  You talk in (mostly) complete sentences and have an ever-growing vocabulary.  You amaze us with the words you use.  When you are doing something you know you aren't supposed to (like spitting during dinner) and we ask you to stop, you usually respond with "I was just pretending!" When you don't want to do something you usually say "me no do that" and whenever I'm in the kitchen you pull up a chair asking to help. 

You love to sing and make up your own songs by combining bits and pieces of all the songs you know.  Some of your favorites are Jesus Loves Me, ABC's and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.  You love to color and paint.  You love to work alongside Mason and daddy.  Just yesterday Mason led you all around the yard on an adventure looking for rocks.

You can count to 20, know most of your colors, and are always on the move.  You hardly have any interest in movies.  You would rather look at books, play with your dolls, or fix something with your tools. 
 You seem to always have a mischievous gleam in your eyes.  You are spunky and full of attitude, but we can't imagine you any other way.  You are also so tender when you are petting Daisy or the baby chicks and you have a soft spot for all other babies you encounter. 

You eat most anything but you really like fruit, fried eggs, olives, granola, oatmeal, and cheese. 

You love for us to sing Rock a my Baby (rock-a-bye baby) every night before you go to sleep.  You sleep with your favorite stuffed animals and blanket and are finally starting to sleep through the night.  You are an early riser and are rearing and ready to go as soon as you wake up. 
We can't get enough of your chubby cheeks, crazy giggles, huge smile, and fun personality.  We love you so much.  Happy Birthday!
