Emma's 3rd Birthday

 Emma had her third birthday on July 6.  We celebrated a few days early because her daddy would be traveling to Brazil on her actual birthday.
 I can't believe my baby is 3.  She has turned into a little girl, with very little baby left. 
 She is usually happy and usually right in the middle of whatever is going on in our house.
 And wherever her brothers are, you will find Emma.
 She and Ben have a special relationship.  They love to play together and she idolizes Ben.  They also fight.  A lot. :)
 But they can be very sweet together.
 A strange picture, but it is the only one I had of Emma and I on her birthday.
 I LOVED this little blue dress I found.  I had bought her a butterfly shirt and skirt, but at the last minute I found this dress.  So cute.

 Emma has been talking about having a "butterfly" birthday for months.  Anna made her this beautiful butterfly cake.  She did a great job.  It was a lot of work!

 Opening presents.
 She received some very nice girly presents.
 And was thrilled to have presents just for her.
On her actual birthday, Daddy was on his way to Brazil, so the kids and I took her out to dinner and then to see "The Croods".  We also had a little cupcake for her.  I think she enjoyed it.
She is a delightful little girl- usually!  She is 3, however, and has decided to test boundaries.  She is fast learning that the boundaries are still there.
She has added so much to our family and we are so glad to have her.
Happy Birthday little girl.  We love you so much!
