I apologize for my long absence from this blog....I'm still dealing with several health issues of my own, and am in the middle of transitioning from working full-time to working part-time to applying for disability. :(

But I just had to write a quick post to capture a few of the phrases and sayings that Emma has come up with lately. She's just so incredibly funny sometimes!

Recent examples:

"It's not me changing, it's the weather."

"Daddy, you're disgusting!" (after feeling his face when he had neglected to shave)

Overheard while talking to her hands....(the right one is "Handy", and the left is "Iggy"):

"Hi Handy and Iggy! How are you today?"

After doing something she's not supposed to she has been known to scold Iggy, who is usually the one to blame.

In other news, Emma may FINALLY be getting her own wheelchair soon!! More soon! I promise!!

Love the first one so much... she's all woman!

Glad you're back, I missed hearing about you and Emma.

Thanks TUC, glad to back posting again.

Emma listens to everything, including old movies, news shows, all sorts of adult conversations. I would say that she was just parroting words and didn't understand what she was saying except that what she says is always perfectly in context!! She is just too much sometimes...especially for a 3-year-old! :)
