Seek and Her Shall Find

Three-year-old Emma enjoyed playing hide-and-seek when I took pictures of her recently. "Where are me?" she giggled, covering her eyes with little dimpled hands.

"No, Emma," I corrected. "Where am I?"

"No, Mommy," she countered, exasperated. "You right dere. Where are ME?"



Peekaboo!

Just a little something from Judy said...

She steals my heart everytime I see her adorable pictures!! Isn't so cute the things that these children come up with? Hopefully, you are recording the words in a book(yours is probably a beautifully decorated journal).

Hi Melissa,
One of my MOST favorite memories of Anna Grace's toddlerhood was watching her frolic about on her tippy-toes. Don't you love tippy-toe photos?
I'm looking forward to hearing you speak at the Faulkner Lectureship. :)

Your babies are so beautiful. You and Joe are truly blessed. I grew up in a foster home and one of my "sisters" was named Chasity. She was a beautiful biracial child, and she came to live with us when she was about 2 years old and was adopted when she was about 6. Anyway, we were sitting in church one morning and the preacher was preaching on "Chasity" in the world and he said something along the lines of "there is just no more Chasity in the world today". My "sister" Chasity, who had been sitting in our foster mother's lap and was about your Emma's age, turned around and loudly exclaimed "Uh, huh, I right here!"...the whole congregation cracked up.

Children say the funniest things! My youngest, Kenzie, cracks me up on a regular basis. :)

Jennifer, that is so cute! I'm glad there was a little chastity in your church after all! And, Tina, can't wait to see you too next week!

I LOVE those pictures! And Alise had that same dress when she was two years old. I still have it, but I'm debating on whether or not to sale it in our upcoming local Munchkin Market or Ebay.

Judy said...

Hey girlfriend! I've missed visiting with you and seeing your gorgeous babies! Taylor and Jackson came to see us Sunday after church, what a treat!

I always think about you when I go to T.J. Maxx in Prattville (like yesterday). They have a lot of the Bordello stuff. Not sure if you're still "into" that or not but seeing Bordello always makes me think of you!

Love ya,
Judy
