Mommy Lesson of the Week

Jekyll and Hyde
Apparently, Emily is a totally different kid at daycare. She eats everything and anything put in front of her. If I make the same meal at home, she won't touch it and throw a fit. She also plays the "baby card" there, if that make sense. She is so grown up at home, but at daycare she wants everyone to do things for her and treat her like a baby. At home she wants to use the potty all the time, at daycare, hasn't even used the word "potty".

I would love to hear your stories of how your child has different personalities with different surroundings.

Endless fun

Emily's new favorite thing to do is Ring-Around-The-Rosie. Luckily Lily plays the song and she can play with Emily. Mommy and Daddy get tired, that's how often Emily wants to play this game.

Meet Nolan

Emily's Best bud Zak has a new brother. Nolan Philip Kukuk was born October 11. He came a month early and is in perfect health. Emily loves to give him hugs and kisses. She is very good with babies.

Taking after Aunt Kristin

Saturday was our first Toddler trip to Urgent Care. We decided to have some fun on Saturday and take Emily to Bounce House. She was having a great time going from each bouncy activity. While alone in a bigger jumper a few older kids joined her. One wasn't paying attention and bounced into Em and knocked her down falling on her. She cried, but not too bad. It was getting to be nap time anyway, so we went home. Once we got home, Emily went down for her nap. Waking up an hour later, she wouldn't put any weight on her right leg/foot. She kept telling us "Oww, Oww". After our own self exam, James and I decided to take her in to get it x-rayed. Nothing was broken that they could see. But we need to keep on eye on it in case she injured a growth plate. She seems to be fine, she is favoring the foot and toes, but it doesn't stop her from getting around.

Happy Halloween!!!

Friday night Mommy and Daddy took me on a weird adventrure. I had to get all dressed up, get lots of pictures taken and then go around asking people for candy. It was actually quite fun. Mommy would take me up to a door, I would say "teetteet" and they put candy in my bucket. Then I politely said "tank-oo".
Mom's note: Emily did awesome... she did exactly as she said above, but once we stepped off the porch she would take out that piece of candy and carry it to the next house. Once her bucket was too heavy, she dragged it. She wouldn't let us touch the bucket, it was all hers. Or as she says "Miiine!" After awhile we had to distract her to get some of the candy out and stuff my coat pockets, just so she could carry her bucket again. She had a great time, next year will be even better when she can actually keep up with Jillian and Julia.
