For those of you wondering, Emma is growing so fast. She is still just army crawling (I'm not sure if she's aware of her left leg at all, she just drags it behind her) but she now tries to get up on her knees all the time. It's really funny to watch her try to figure out how to crawl for real. I know she wants to do it, because she sees the youngest kid I babysit doing it and getting around a lot faster than her (and I think she's fast dragging herself all over the place!).
Also, a good friend today told me that Emma reminds her of a Weeble. If you are unfamiliar with Weebles, they are toys that you can knock down, but they just pop right back up. They are kind of like those clown punching bags that never stay down. When Emma gets wobbly she just steadies herself and pops right back up. Usually.
Everyday she is starting to look more and more like a feminine version of Nathan. She makes these faces sometimes that remind me so much of him.
Jeremy is a funny little dude. If he's in a bad mood, especially if he takes a nap and wakes up before he's ready, he doesn't want to talk to anyone. Nothing you can say or do will make him happy. . .unless you bring in baby sister. He will brighten up like a 100 Watt light bulb, that kid. For example, yesterday. He fell asleep in the car on the way home from the store and when we finally got home and he woke up he was mad. He didn't want to be awake, but didn't want to go to sleep. He didn't want to eat dinner, but didn't really want to do anything. However, as soon as he saw Emma he started to smile, his eyes got bright, and he became his normal, silly self. He looked at her and said, "Hi, Bellybutton!" Yeah. He's going through a belly button phase. Not exactly sure why and it doesn't really seem to be fading. . . . Anyway, it's really cute and sweet to see how much he adores his little sister. I hope one day this sweetness and love evolves to include a desire to protect her, like all brothers should for their sisters. Right now, he still likes to sit on her.
