...that the promise of a Hershey's Kiss will make a 2 year old look this darn adorable:
She's been impossible to photograph lately, so I am way too excited about these shots of her. I have been trying to get some shots of Emma and Nathan since I was able to get some cute ones of Abby and Nathan a few weeks ago. She just happened to be in the right mood yesterday...or rather, she really really wanted some candy. She tries to sneak candy when no one is looking, and she is just so dang good at being sneaky. The double chin is compliments of me...and candy, I suppose. Genetics is a funny thing, and Emma and Nate both seemed to have gotten that "extra fat on your neck" trait from me. From Jay, Emma received the makings of a unibrow.
Me: (as I was inspecting the growing vanilla hairs on the missing bridge of her nose as I rocked her yesterday) Oh Em, you are going to have to pluck your eyebrows when you get older.
Emma: No Mama, don't pwuck my eye-bohws.
Me: I'm not...but you will eventually.
Abby: Yeah Emma, you have to or you'll have a universe.
Emma: I no wanna universe.
Me: She means "unibrow".
Emma: I no wanna unibrow.
Me: Then you'll have to pluck.
Emma: I no wanna pwuck.
Me: Whatever. She calls Nathan "Buddy Boo", and I just love hearing that teeny voice talking to her little brother. She's been a stinker these days...probably due to the fact that she's been waking up between 5 and 6 each morning...and because she is 2. These kid things that we have running around at our feet all day surely are a blast though...I love 'em all so much.
