Skeletons, Thomas, Outside, Shopping, and More

Man, this stage Emma is in keeps us more on our toes.  She likes to pick out her clothes, socks, shoes, hair accessories; and be careful not to do everything for her anymore, "Emma do it" she says!  I love this stage so far, it's my favorite.  Her little personality coming through more and more, and the things she says.  She's talking up a storm, saying phrases and paragraphs and every now and then Momma and Dadda have to say "What?" or smile and just say, "yes, that's right."  Most things though, we can understand.  She's a very meticulous little girl.  If a piece of a puzzle or a toy is not straight, she has to fix it.  Dadda's personality more than mine ;)  She's really picking up our traits.  And she is loving this Fall weather.  She is constantly wanting outside...
And just in the past couple of weeks, she has really started to climb on our bar chairs (so now see sits either on us or the chair to eat, no more booster), climb the latter of the slide, and swinging like a monkey on the bars...all because of gymnastics.  She's so excited about her new ability and becoming more confident now about doing more physical things like that.  Although she still freezes when someone else gets on the slide with her at the park.  She needs her "space" so she can practice ;)
I took her recently to the Children's Museum and then all three of us went again.  Her most favorite was the grocery store...she had to have some crab...she's got good taste...
...and she loved ringing up her groceries...
Besides the grocery shopping and checking out...she was fascinated by the skeleton.  Although, I think at first she was both a little bit freaked out by it and liking it.  So I decided to keep talking about how your bones help you move...she loves the skeleton so much we bought her a foam skeleton puzzle.  It has the names of the bones on the back, and she LOVES him and loves learning her bones...
The weather has been so nice, we went to the zoo...

For a lack of the proper name...and since she loves this statute, I just call her the yoga lady ;)  We had to stop and see the "yoga lady" every time we passed her ;)  and notice her ensemble (she partially dressed herself)
We have been busy shopping for Christmas for little chickadee, but we also decided to go ahead and give her some really cool things to play with, realizing most of her toys she has outgrown.  Since she is so into the pretending and totally head over heels in love with Thomas the Tank Engine, we got her a real Thomas train and train tracks...we also got the table that came in today...she was so excited!  It was all very pricey, but have to say, it is well worth it in quality and she loves it!
And Scrapping the Music's newest challenge song "Bubbly"  by Colbie Caillat is up this week...such a fun song and love the feeling of it, so I took the lyrics of the song and made them my own:

You're the silly 
in my tilly
and the bubbly in
the cuddly
you're the nose in my
toes
oh heavens no
but the one thing
I do know
you make me smile
wherever I go
take your time and
stay a child
for awhile

Pin It!
