Emma's latest answer to the question "What do...
Emma's latest answer to the question "What do you want to be when you grow up?" has become "A doctor!" Funny how things shift around.
I spent yesterday morning with Emma, just the two of us. We went to the library to listen to music and pick up books, movies, and computer games for the week. Already we've played a game, watched a movie, and read over half the books. I think we're going to have to go more often.
Emma is amazingly good at making new friends. She hooked up with a slightly older girl, who ended up teaching her ballet moves. Her mom passed along a phone number in case we wanted further "lessons". Later Emma met and danced with another little girl. Emma was fascinated because she didn't have any toes on one foot, which they calmly discussed together.
After the library, we pulled out the wading pool and splashed around at home, then had lunch and worked on her Valentine's Day heart projects. That particular book is a favorite of hers, found in the "girl's section", as she calls it due to every book being pink. It's really just all the Valentine's Day books, but she loves the color of them all.

Jamie asked Emma this morning what she wanted to be when she grew up. "Normal," Emma replied.
Taking a shower in the morning has an element of danger. Often I'll be washing away, only to hear a little giggle outside the curtain. Sure enough, Emma greeted me this morning, helping me put on chapstick and pick out clothes. Such service.
