She's Two

On Friday, September, 20th Emily Susan (or Emmy Sue or just Emmy) turned 2!
I made her a bunny from a kit from here.  Mike made her one of our lacing sets.

Every time I hold her against me, hug her and kiss her, I thank God for trusting us to raise her, knowing that we were the parents for her.

She -
holds me tightly around my neck when we have a thunderstorm and will not let go

has started to care for her baby doll and rabbit

loves her brothers and sisters and has sweet names for each of them 
Nolan she calls, "Nolo"
Thomas she calls, "Tomno"
Abby she calls, "Buddy"
Sarah she calls, "Ta"
Isaac she calls, "Isaa"

is now speaking in full sentences sometimes

has developed a very strong will, she really belts out "No"

enjoys being read to, her favorite book right now is "Barn Cat" by Carol P. Saul and Illustrated by Mary Azarian
