Happy 2nd Birthday Emerson!
We started off the day with some chocolate chip pancakes which has become a birthday tradition. You were so excited to see balloons tied to your and Aly's chair in the morning. You wouldn't let them stay on the chair you had to hold at least one all morning.
Your new train table from Daddy, Mommy and Alyssa. You love it! We organized the basement a bit and put down some foam mats so it won't be so cold and set up the table so you have good space to play in.
We played in the basement for a few hours and you couldn't get enough of your train. Its pretty cool with sensors on a few of the tracks to make train noises and light up the bridge.
Emerson, its been a lot of fun watching you these past two years. You are very independent and like to do everything yourself. You are so busy and curious and attempt to climb everything! You LOVE music, you ask daily to sit at the piano and play "kinkle, kinkle" (Twinkle little star) your other favorrite songs are Wheels on the Bus, ABCs and Jingle Bells. You usually sleep with a musical instrument most often your "drum" which is a tamborine and a set of drumsticks and you need to have at least a car or two, a tool- your favorite being your hammer and "Bear" (your Polar Bear you made at Build-a-Bear) and a Mickey Mouse stuffie from Santa. Last but not least are the books, your favorite a peek-a-boo cloth book, and the series of Brown Bear by Eric Carl. Right now you love to count everything and can count to 5 really well and you know all your numbers to 10 but not always in order :)
Emerson love, you have made our family complete and Daddy and I love you with all our hearts. You are a joy to be around everyday and Alyssa and you make each day exciting, full of laughter and challenges. I know this next year will fly by and you will grow in incredible leaps and bounds and I hope you have as much fun as we have with you. Lots of Love!
