Even though Emma is only nine months old (today!) I feel like I'm already experiencing that with her. She loves sitting in a shopping cart and looking at all the people as they pass. She never fails to capture their attention with her big cheesy grin, or if that doesn't work- she yells in her indistinguishable language. I'm pretty sure that she's convinced that the world revolves around her; I know that's not healthy for older children, but I'm not looking forward to the day when she learns that the world can be a cruel place. Right now I'm more than happy for her to believe that everyone is patient, kind, and good-willed. It's funny, there's just something about a baby that softens people. Today I was in line at Walmart and this lady kept yelling at her daughter, but in the next breath would turn around and talk sweetly to Emma. Or maybe it's not babies but just that my daughter is so darn cute??
I took a bunch of pictures of her tonight. She's so funny; when she does something silly that I laugh at she starts laughing too and does it again. She's a smart one! However her mommy is not. I went to load the pictures...and there was no memory card in the camera. I would have known that if I had not dropped and broken this camera (as with our nice camera) so it doesn't show pictures on the screen. Here's one from a few weeks ago of her though, looking absolutely disgusted. This is what she usually looks like after dinner- not so much the expression- but the mess.
