The Things Emerson Says

7.23.2013

Emerson is constantly cracking us up with the things she says. She is such a little copycat right now so she repeats a lot of what she hears. She also comes up with some pretty interesting things all on her own and I always wonder where in the world she gets this stuff from. I always say I need to start writing them down but I feel like I forget them so fast. Before I forget these, I wanted to share:

-We're sitting at the dinner table and we're all pretty quiet because we are chowing down and she suddenly looks at me and says,
"Mommy, is there something wrong?"


-While waiting for me to come get her out of her room in the morning.

"There's a monster in here. A scary monster."


-Me: "Emerson, go put this puzzle piece with the car puzzle."

Emerson: "Ok. Where's the car puzzle?"

-Almost every morning when she wakes up she asks me, "Is Daddy home?" (This was pre-deployment and she hasn't asked since he left because we talk every day about him being far away.)


-I noticed a scratch on her face and I asked her what happened.

Emerson: "A kid did it."
Me: "A kid did not do it. You haven't been around any kids."
Emerson: "Daddy did it."
Me: "Daddy did not do that. That's not a nice thing to say."
Emerson: "Mommy did it."

(This is one of her new favorites and she will go through this dialogue anytime she has a boo boo.)



-While driving:

"Be careful momma (or daddy). Slow down."

"Are we going to turn left?"


-First thing in the morning as we are coming downstairs.

"Momma, my diaper is full."


"You feel bad, Momma?"


When she passes gas:
"I have a toot."


"Wow. This is amazing." (This was while eating a donut but she says it about just about everything.)



"This is incredible"


I came out of my room dressed for church.
"Mom, that looks so good on you."


"You look like a model" (She definitely got this from me because I tell her that when she's dressed up and she's posing."

"My tummy hurts. I need a snack." And then after she eats. "My tummy feels better."


When she wakes up in the morning and I go in to get her, "Eme waked up."


She is obsessed with the little stool in the bathroom eventually figured out that she can move it to different places. She uses it to turn on the lights in the living room and reach stuff on the shelves. Yesterday she left the room and I asked where she was going. She didn't answer me but came back with the stool and said "I need the stool so I can reach higher."

I know there are more that I am forgetting, so I have no doubt that I'll be back for round 2. Needless to say, this girl keeps us laughing all day with the silly things she comes up with! I always tease that she is 2 going on 15. :)

I love these!! I wish I was better at writing down all cute/funny things my kids have said over the years. I know I could have written a book!

April said...

So cute! Love her big words like "incredible" and "amazing". She sounds like Jonah, always trying to say big words we say. It's amazing how much they understand at that age.

Liam tells us to slow down in the car too! How funny! I really need to write stuff down too - I bought that One Line A Day book with the intent of writing down his quotes and am failing miserably :( I also keep a page of notes in my phone but haven't updated it in a while. They will be so funny to look back on later!
