Emma-28monthsScrap Credits
Things I ♥ About You QP Freebie from Blagovesta Gosheva


9.0 kilos


Not measured.


I think she has 19.  9 bottom teeth (3 incisors, 2 canines, 4 molars) and  (maybe) 10 upper teeth (4 incisors, 2 canines and 4 molars).  I will make that call to the dentist soon.

Motor Skills

  • She’s started to wear more “regular” clothes nowadays.  Most of her early months, Emma was wearing her sleep-n-plays, which provided protection against her scratching her legs and arms, but now that she is bigger, and healing well from her eczema, I’ve started taking out more and more of Hannah’s lovely clothes for her to wear.  Emma will ask for “pants”, “shorts” and “tights”, and to “wear shirt”, while tugging at her attire indicating she wants to change out of them.  Time for Mommy to start snapping more and more pictures!
  • Can tiptoe and trying her best to jump

Communication and Social Skills

  • Emma’s stringing together more sentences now.
    Mommy: Okay, do you want me to take off your shoes?
    Emma: No take off shoes!
    Mommy: Emma, you can drink your milk and go to sleep, all right?
    Emma: No sleep.
    “Emma eat biscuit!”
    “Watch Bar-yee circle music book!” (her current favorite video: Barney’s Musical Scrapbook)
  • Terrible twos have taken off with more screaming (like a banshee sometimes), so we have had to introduce the naughty stool on some occasions.

Food and Feeding

Emma has been doing really well with self-feeding using a spoon, and can eat quite a fair amount of rice in restaurants when we go out.  Her favorite food at home is of course, still, rice/porridge with chicken or pork, and vegetables such as carrot (purple or orange) or pumpkin.  She loves soup and “char-siew” rice too.



Emma sprang another pleasant surprise on us all last week when she suddenly said, “Amen!” at the end of our bedtime prayer.  We were so surprised and just to make doubly sure, I suggested we say another prayer, after which she clearly said, “Amen!” again. :)

Ah, life’s little surprises are most definitely sweet!



This is one of the activities that keeps Emma occupied these days.  I noticed she was very amused by the Junior Boggle alphabet blocks and kept asking for “blocks”, so I dug out these gorgeous (and well-used) wooden blocks from way back when. Remember the first time I showed you these blocks on my blog?  My, how time has flown!!


Anyway, these are super sturdy and fit into her hands so well.  I’ve taught her how to stack too, as well as how to say “stack”.

It’s stack and crash over and over again now!
