Life is never boring

Dear Emma Claire Bear,

Happy happy birthday to the happiest of girls.  You bring us all so much joy every day.  You always have a smile on your face  and you love to laugh.  You think Ben is the funniest whether he is pretending to smell your feet, making funny faces, or just generally shrieking in your direction.  Even though Ben is the funniest, I am still your favorite.  You love Daddy and Ben, but you REALLY love me.

When I was pregnant, I secretly hoped I would get a little girl who I could buy pretty dresses for and put bows in their hair.  You have not disappointed as you clearly have the best hair in the family.  You are the perfect addition to complete the family as you are so laid back and easy going while the rest of us get crazy.  You are content to play by yourself for hours on end but are also happy to let us play with you.  You recently discovered the play kitchen and table and can sit for endless amounts of time in the chair banging and giggling happily.

You also have recently discovered your love of water and will splash and play at the pool for as long as we let you or until your fingers start to turn blue.  You wake up happy and you go to bed happy and you are pretty much happy all the time in between.  We love you so so much and wish you a very happy first birthday.

Love Mama, Dada and Benj

Happy Birthday Emma Clarie Dear Emma Claire Bear, Happy happy birthday to the happiest of girls.  You bring us all so much joy every day.

Emmy is taking a sick day today. You can gauge how sick she is by how much hair sticks up.
