Emmy Lou turned 3 today. We jokingly say 3 going on 13. She says and does things that no three year old should be able to say and do. I guess when you are the youngest of 6, you have to grow up fast to keep up.
She loves to pose. Can you tell.
Sitting on her new big girl bed that her Papaw and Daddy made. You can't see the bed here, it is still in the living room, but I'll show you after it gets set up in her room. She shares a room with sister Brooke and the bed is part of a really cute pair. The other one is in the shop being painted tonight.
She got a swimming suit and goggles from her other Grandma. I could not resist showing you this picture. I laughed until I cried. She loves these and would not take them off. I was laughing so hard, I had tears. She looked at me seriously (if you can be serious looking through those glasses) and said. "Stop laughing at me".
Eating her favorite Pscetti dinner.
She is sitting in her Daddy's high chair. It is a Jenny Lind and was maple and matched his crib and cradle.(that was the "thing" in the 70's.) I painted it white and all the grandkids used it at my house. When we moved into our
RV small cottage, Emmy inherited it.
I have been working the last week on a sort of "prom dress" for the daughter of a family friend.
It has really given me fits, or in Mr. SS's words it's "Eating my lunch". Whatever...I'm not going to give in to it.
So today, I took the day off and had some fun.
All my grandkids have a Minkee pillowcase with their name on it. Somehow, I had never made Emmy one,'
So...this is hers with her nick name on it.
I know...I said the Valentine bib was her last one, but it's her birthday and I needed a break from the "prom dress" I've mentioned before that whipping up a bib (or pillowcase) is always rewarding when I've been working on something that isn't showing much progress.
I was tempted to put Happy Birthday or her name on it, but I thought that might be pushing my luck with my machine, which has been humming along since it's last checkup.
I know it was supposed to be Pinterest Try Thursday, but with the "prom dress" and Emmy's
Birthday being today, I just didn't get a post done.
I promise a couple of tries next week.
I already have a couple of things in mind. One is my Mug Rug for March, which will have to have a bunny because I don't usually do anything for St. Patrick's Day and Easter is the last day of March.
I can't believe it is almost Easter already. We had a couple of nice spring days. I dug a couple of short sleeve shirts out of storage. (When you live in a
RV small cottage, you have to pack away each seasons clothing.) I washed windows and then of course it rained.
Today I needed a sweater again.
Not complaining though. Hot weather will be here all too soon.
Happy Birthday to my youngest grandchiled.
You keep a smile on my face and a song in my heart.
"You Are My Sunshine"
God is Good!!
Life is Good!!
