the games we play

being a 'mostly' stay-at-home-mama has afforded em and i all kinds of bonding time / fun having time / game playing time.  now that you are is getting bigger / older / wiser you are into all kinds of things little lady.  i thought i might as well jot them down before we forget!

you love things that aren't toys the most [i hear cardboard boxes are all the rage].  you love empty water bottles, crinkly diaper wipe cases, remote controls & cell phones a lot.  i also think there is some kind of magnet force field between your and the electrical sockets on the wall.  p.t.l. momma finally bought those little safety plugs so i say "no touch please" about 400 times less in a day.  [she doesn't know what that means fyi].

you have your own "cabinet" which is actually the bottom of our pantry.  there are all kinds of kid-friendly non-toys for you to get your hands on, and you do.  quit judging my pantry.  you just crawl your little self on in there and momma can actually wash a bowl or something before you need more attention.  it's pretty awesome!  you really enjoy pulling every.thing. out of the cabinet.  every. thing.  ;)

you like to stand at the front door.  the screen door is glass, so i don't know what you call that but you like it.  you can see outside, sometimes you sit and play with dirt on our floors [yikes] and sometimes you stand, press your face to the glass, blow bubbles and slam your tiny baby palms on the door as if to say "HELLO WORLD!! it's me, emmie!"

we go on walks just about every pretty day here in ky.  we've had really crazy weather, one day 80 degrees the next day 40 degrees so we have to take advantage when we can.  we get all around the neighborhood and when we can we lay out a blanket in the yard so you can get some outdoor exercise too!  the big tree in the front yard shades you pretty well from the bright sun on pretty days so we can stay out there for a while.
on those pretty days we've also had our air conditioner kick on and that is a whole new 'something amazing' that you enjoy.  you love to find the air registers on our floor and put your hands and feet on the cold air blowing out.  i have to stop you eventually because your tiny little self turns into an ice cube.  a few times you tried to lick the registers too.  it was gross.  auntie cory said "get that girl a popsicle"  - i say summer prophesy!
my current faves include you interacting with your poppa.  when he gives you tickle kisses you laugh so loud!  and you just recently started leaning into him when he stops so that he'll do it again.  precious.  you also have fake laugh battles with your dad.  you love mimicking noises, grunts, squeals, words but most of all we love to see you fake laugh.  you two exchanging ridiculous giggles is just about the most hilarious thing I've ever seen.  the only sad part is that rarely will share this side of you with other people.  it kills me because i know the world would LOVE to see awesome baby antics too but, sigh, so be it.  we're you're audience.
sweet girl, we wouldn't rather play with anyone else.  you're pure awesomeness!


  1. I love how the simplest things will make a baby laugh. Mason giggles at the most random noise and objects. And like Miss Emmie, he mainly shares this joy with Hubby and I and close family. Everyone else gets a staredown.
