Encyclopedia: E

E is for Emma

Emma is as girly as they come. She loves to wear dresses, and puts in the qualifier that they must spin out when she twirls. She prefers when they have a goodly amount of pink in them. She loves to play kitchen and Barbie, and her favorite movies are the Barbie movies, with the Princess movies being a close second. Luckily, she also enjoys games like catch and tag. She is a bit of a Prima Ballerina personality wise, but she also is a good sister and daughter. She loves many different types of food, including salmon, avocados, and veggie-pita sandwiches. Emma is excellent at cleaning her room. Although she is only 3, if I ask her to straighten her room, she comes back to me 5 minutes later and says it is done. Sure enough, when I go check, all clothes, toys and books are properly put away. It is a small miracle in our household!

E is for Ethan

Ethan is our resident artist. He loves to sit and draw for hours. I think this year I will actually invest in art lessons for him. His favorite subjects to draw are power rangers and dinosaurs, which is a welcome break from the Godzilla phase we were in not too long ago. Ethan is also an excellent singer. He has had a good ear and could sing perfectly on pitch since before he was two. We used to listen to the Star Wars soundtrack in my car while running errands, and I realized one day that he was humming along with it perfectly. Ethan is a great brother, and loves to entertain both Emma and Sophie for me while I try to get things done around the house. He also loves to be social and is a great friend. I have many, many parents that call me for playdates with him, and I know it is because he plays well and is polite to his friend's parents.
His favorite sport is swimming, favorite food is dinosaur chicken nuggets (thank you Costco), and his favorite color is blue.
I am so lucky to have such great kids!
Some other E's: Elliott, Easter, and England.

what great E kids. I think I speak for all the women in the extended P family when I say that I have a little soft spot in my heart for that Ethan boy. I don't know why, but that kid is very easy to love.

And that picture of Emma is incredibly cute. :)
