I keep finding myself calling Emily "my daughter" instead of "my baby" and to be honest - it keeps catching me off-guard. Emme will ALWAYS be "my baby" no matter how old she gets. I watched the Oprah show today about that little girl Madeline McCann who was abducted in Portugal while her family was on vacation and all I can think about is my little girl. It just makes my heartache thinking about it. I really don't know how a parent can survive losing a child. There is another website that I somehow came across the other day - http://thespohrsaremultiplying.com/ - kind of ironic that this little girl's name was Madeline as well. I somehow came across this blog on April 9th - just randomly. This poor mother lost her baby girl on April 7th. I can't imagine. She was 16 months old - Em's exact age. I am not intending this blog to be depressing, it's just that somedays I think about how lucky I am to have such a wonderful little girl in my life. I am not sure what I did to be given such joy.
Emily - you are the sunshine in my life - and I am so thankful that you were given to me. I love you.
Here is a really fun video of Daddy chasing Emme down the hall and into her room. It gets dark for a minute, but then lights back up.
