Emma's really fun to talk to these days

Emma's really fun to talk to these days. She's making sentences left and right, producing such classics as "cheese triangle". She also said her first "love you" yesterday, which was fun to hear.

I was also lucky to get a phone call from her, though conversations are a little tricky. It had a lot of "um" and "okay"'s. One of her new Christmas toys was a pretend cell phone that she's enjoyed quite a bit.

Emma had a dream last night, according to Jamie. When she woke up, she said "Mom, dream." She then proceeded to tell what the dream was about - "Earring. Josh. Dave." At least that's the theory.

Emma's vocabular continues to amaze. Sam was running around saying "awesome", presumably picked up at school. After thinking about it for awhile, she piped in with her own "awesome". She also says "Yes" very distinctly, quite a bit different than the "ya" of previous months.

I stayed home from work today so that Jamie could teach at Sam's preschool. Emma and I got to hang out together just by ourselves, which is pretty rare these days. We decided to go for a walk to the park, where Emma stared at another little girl and went on the swing.

She also ate a ton of spaghetti noodles while I wrapped Christmas presents. Unfortunately she's now getting pretty cranky because she was up for four hours last night. Hopefully Jamie will be home soon to put her to sleep.

Emma's been really enjoying Christmas

Emma's been really enjoying Christmas. She oohs and aahs at the lights and tries hard to fiddle with the tree ornaments. We had one accident where she managed to pull down and step on a glass ball, fortunately avoiding any injury to herself. Everything breakable was promptly moved up another foot.

Jamie also related an interesting story about Emma from a week or so ago. I had Sam at my mom's house and Jamie was home with Emma. Suddenly she got a call from 911, asking if there was a problem. She replied that there wasn't, then called me to make sure everything was okay. After eliminating other possibilities, it sounds like Emma must have called 911 while playing with the phone. Yet another thing we should probably move up a couple more feet off the floor.

Emma can essentially talk

Emma can essentially talk. She sometimes puts two words or more together, but even then can still get her point across. I've lost track of all the words she knows, which is a pretty impressive list. She can even say "elephant", which is her word for a Dr. Seuss computer game that has an elephant in it.

She's got a few more teeth to come in and then we're done with this whole business. She's been trying out her new molars on nuts and granola and they seem to work well enough.
