Darling Emora

I had imagined that I would have all this time with Emora this year with the big kids in school. Well, it's just not what I had imagined. First of all, Dominique is only gone half the time, then there is the school schedule that cuts up the day and then regular life, like errands and we want a social life too- add that all up with super long afternoon naps and we don't get near as many moments alone as I had thought!

I guess that makes the moments we do have that much more precious.

I love it when she tells me "I love you too" and gives me the greatest bear hug ever.

I love how she snuggles up and gives me loads of kisses when I put her down for her nap.

I love her super huge words and expressions. One of the cutest: "naps are horrible!" Yeah, some days she doesn't want one, but she still needs them.

She wants to be all grown up and do everything the big kids do, but just can't all the time.

I think it does get easier with the 3rd though. The big kids help mother Emora too and she's in such a hurry to be big like them, that she seems to become independent earlier. Yes, some times she is terrible, but 2 is a really amazing age- still so loving, learning so much, fascinated and amazingly cute!

Is it possible to do your errands and set up social get together after you drop the big kids off?
After that a nap might seem to be a really good thing. She is a cutie!
