I get all mopey and sentimental about once a month...I think any woman does :p Today is one of those days for me. Emma has always been my special baby girl. She was colicky as a baby and she's always been high maintenance. I never noticed it much before Madelyn because well, I had all my time to devote to her. When Madelyn came along and I saw how low-key she was and that she was just a completely different kid, it really struck me. She is so tender, so caring, and that just translates into so many other things. Anxiety about things a 4 year old shouldn't worry about is the big thing. She worries that our house is going to catch on fire, she worries that someone's going to get in the house, she worries that no one will pick her up from school, she worries that we're going to drive a different way, and I am constantly reminding myself that this is who she is. My little worrywart. Today is my day to really reflect on Emma. I need to appreciate who she is and not always reflect on the "bad" things. She is wise beyond her years. SO caring. The girl is seriously funny, and even though she exasperates me to no end...I wouldn't want her any other way. What 4 year old still wants to cuddle with their momma, all day long?
Anyway, my photo for today is obviously Miss Emma. :p
