My sweet girl

Yesterday I was laying on the sofa next to Emma during "rest time" and while softly rubbing my leg she said to me, "I am sorry you are sick Mom. But I really love the little baby girl in your tummy and it is just something you are going to have to go through if you want to have a baby."
For the record we don't know if we are having a girl, but Emma seems to think we are. I was a little surprised how much she understood and I am glad to know she understands why sometimes mommy just needs to lay down. And mostly I am glad she loves the baby. I just hope she will still love the baby as much if it turns out to be a boy. She went on to tell me how I need to get lots of rest and take my medicine so the baby can be healthy. It was cute. I am sure she will be a really great mommy someday.

Emma is also gaining such a great understanding of the gospel. Today she was asked if she has any brothers or sisters and she said 4. I corrected her and said no you only have two brothers. Then Emma said "Mom Jesus is my brother, he is every ones brother." I stand corrected. She was also counting the new baby. I guess this time around I don't like counting chickens before they hatch if you know what I mean.

Emma really is such a thoughtful, sweet little girl; she always has been! She'll be a great mommy someday.
Love always,
