My Little Big Girl

13 Nov

My little girl is getting too big!

These days my little sunshine wants to sit in a seat “all by herself” no baby seats allowed. In a normal chair I would be fine, but because we sit in bar stools to eat, it made me nervous with her that high up and no chair to keep her in it! It’s been two days now and she’s doing just fine. My eyes don’t leave her side because I’m still terrified, but she is one happy big girl.

We are also potty training! It’s been a long process of trying to teach her to know when she needs to go potty and we still haven’t found out the right system – but we are trying!

Emma is also starting to show serious interest in sports. She loves to kick balls around the house, pretend she’s playing baseball, smack golf balls across the room, pretend she’s swimming like a fish in the tub, and dance like nobody’s business.

She’s been practicing conversation with random people when I’m pushing her in the cart in the grocery store. We’ll walk passed someone shopping and she knows just what to do:

Emma: Hi!

Stranger: Usually looks and smiles.

Emma: What you doing?!

Stranger: Usually says shopping.

Emma: Oh Okay! (giggles) I shopping too. I see snacks!!

Next lesson is to teach her not all strangers are nice, or want to talk – that’s going to be a tough one!

Last night she had tubby time and she got in trouble for splashing outside of the tub. She did it more than once so tubby time was immediately over. This morning when I woke her up and this happened:

Emma: I sorry I splashed and make mess.

Me: That’s okay. Thank you for saying you are sorry.

Emma: I sorry I make Mommy sad.

Me: That’s okay hunny.

Emma: I no splash again!

Me: Fantastic!

I can’t believe how much she’s growing up! This time next year she’ll be in school and I won’t know what to do with myself all day!
