my little genius

Sometimes it just absolutely freaks me out at how much my Emily is growing up. Her face just seems to gain maturity with each day. Maybe it's because I look at Paige all day long - she is a mini-Emily, but it still freaks me out all the same.

She's in school all day. She reads. She is a social butterfly - and has no problem making friends anywhere and everywhere. She is a great big sister - and quite proud of that title. She is truly getting a whole sense of herself.

She is still silly. She still cries when she can't find something. She still needs me to pick out her clothes. She still needs us - her parents to guide her. And we are quite happy to do so.....for we know it's fleeting.

My BIG girl had her very first test today - and if this is a measure on how well she will do on future academia - we had better start saving for Ivy League. I know, it's just a math test, basic addition and subtraction, quantities, patterns and such - but still - 100 percent!!!

She could not wait to tell me - the big news was coming out of her mouth the minute she got off the bus this afternoon.

I could not be prouder of my Emily Jean.
