Emma opened her birthday gift from her Grandmom, Grandpa, Uncle and Auntie last night. When she saw the Elsa gown and crown, she gasped. Right in that moment I was so giddy being a mommy to a little girl. I put her into her gown, and she looked down and said, "Ooh wow!" and touched the Elsa pendant. My heart could have exploded watching her turn into a little princess.
Emma is a tough girl. She likes to push her brother around, play in the sand, play superheroes, and do all things that Max does. Ian says she's going to be his little tomboy. I'm completely fine with that too, but when my rough and tough little girl put on her dress and crown for the first time...it was a special moment that I wish I would have captured in a video.
She held up her dress in her hands and twirled until she was dizzy. Then she looked at Max and started to chase him around the room.
That's my girl.
