Press Pause

My baby is getting really big and old and it makes me sad. :(
We're almost to her 2nd birthday (!!!) and I kind of just wanna skip over it. She can stay 23 months forever :)
I wish I could film every second of these toddler years and then show her later on how happy she made me every day. Where's my pause button? 

I catch myself watching her, thinking: She's really mine? I am so blessed.

She tiptoes. Everywhere.

She thinks my belly button is named Henry...

She can jump. Really high.

She just started potty training herself and says: "Mama, pot-tay"

And then she says: "Treep, mommy. Treep." (treat)

She could watch Finding Nemo all day, every day.

She says "Good job, mommy" when I wash my hands.

When we read books she points and asks "What's that?" to everything...

She refuses to say the number seven. Instead it is always "nemy". (idk??)

When daddy walks through the door she immediately says "Watch this, daddy!" and does a little hop and a skip. 

She would jump off the table if we'd let her.

She thinks the main purpose of our computer is to look at googled images of puppies.

She gives me this look out of the corner of her eye when she's doing something naughty. It's her "I'm- not-doing-anything-suspicious" face.

She loves "aipwanes & hewicoptoptuhs"
(yeah, that last one's "helicopters")

She says "yeah, sure" in a raspy voice to just about any question.

And I love her.
And she loves me too.


  1. I can't stand how cute you all are! Your posts always brighten my day, and I miss Annabelle! She is the funniest, smartest most beautiful girl!

  2. I just laughed so hard! refuses to say seven? Thinks your belly button is named Henry?! haha, she is so cute and hilarious! I miss her!!! And Cole does too. I love that last picture because the way Cole's looking at her reminds me of how much he loves Annabelle!! So excited to see you in December! :)

    1. We are so so excited to see you too!! They can share their 2nd birthday cake, just like last year. I like this tradition ;);)

  3. PS. I love that shot of her in her "big girl" panties. Can't wait to show Juliette!

    1. Haha. She's definitely not fully potty trained, but we're getting there. Those big girl panties lasted about 10 seconds after I took the picture :) haha.

  4. Oh my gosh, this post just made me so happy!! I love it! Her bum is so cute and these pics are adorable! I really wish there was a pause button! So sweet, Emma! :)

    1. You're so sweet, Ash. I especially wanna find the Pause Button now that baby Hailey is here. She is so so precious. (But we can unpause for the rest of my pregnancy) Can that work?! Haha.

  5. Such a sweet and clever girl. I think she misses me, again.

    1. She misses you tons, mom. We need to skype!!!
