My Two Year Old

Emmi has been in the "terrible two" stage lately. Everything is "no" and she doesn't want me to help her do ANYTHING. That includes putting her in her highchair, getting her dressed, putting on her shoes and changing her diaper. And if I try to help her she throws a tantrum for about 15 minutes. It is AWESOME!!! She is miss independent. By the end of the day I want to pull my hair out. Good thing Clint is finishing up his Neurology rotation and getting into his really easy/vacation months. Hopefully Emmi will be okay when the baby comes...(I'm crossing my fingers and toes.)

But even with all of that she does some very cute things. She is still a little snuggler...with me... and she LOVES taking care of her dolls. She dresses them, feeds them, sings and rocks them, and puts them to bed. It is SO cute. She also loves dressing herself. For example today she took off her pjs and put on a different pair. 5 minutes later she decided that she didn't want to wear those anymore so she put on her swimming suit with her underwear over it. Then she thought "why put on one swimming suit??? I have 3 of them." So she put on all of her swimming suits and her little cover up. She wore that for about 30 minutes and then decided that she wanted to get dressed for "real". The picture below is the outfit she FINALLY decided on. I tried to get her to change into different shorts that would match but quickly decided that it doesn't matter. The shirt is also a size 6-12 months ( don't ask me why I still have it in the drawer) but she LOVES it. She was so excited when I told her she could wear the shirt that she started clapping and saying "yeah" and had the biggest smile on her face. How can you say no to that? I love my little Ems.

Don't you just want to eat her?
Nice outfit huh??
