Happy 4th Birthday Em

Okay, for those of you who are bored by personal photos, you'll probably want to skip this one.  Come back for the next post, which will most likely involve food and inanimate objects.  :o)

Four years ago today, we went into the hospital for baby number two.  We didn't know what we were having, so when The Dad announced "It's a girl!", after already having a son, we were both pretty excited.  Turns out, she is the biggest daddies girl to ever walk the face of the earth.  And has been since day one.  For the first year of her life, if he was within a one mile radius, no one else could even look at her, let alone touch her.  Thank God she outgrew that, but she still loves her Daddy somethin' fierce.  And he's a bit smitten himself.

This girl has a personality the size of Texas.  And the attitude to back it up most of the time.  I think that comes with the territory.  I'm starting to think that girls are born with an innate bossiness and attitude that follows us our entire lives.  How lucky for the people around us.  :o)

I'm going to stop rambling and start uploading pictures.  It may take all day.  

Here's The Girl from the very beginning:

And now that that's done, I think this post was more for me than you.  
I got to look through hundreds of old photos, which was a ton of fun.
You really do forget how little they start out and all the mini milestones along the way.
Pictures have the amazing ability to bring all those memories back.
Happy Birthday Emma Rae. 
Mommy and Daddy love you so, so much.
