Interview with Emma at Three Years Old

I reinterviewed Emma with the same questions I posed to her at 2 1/2 years old on the way home from Missouri the other day. You can see her previous answers here. She was consistent in some of her answers, which you can tell by the one's that are marked with an asterisk. Let me also say that a few of the answers were definitely influenced by her immediate surroundings such as "What do you like to wear?". After I interviewed her, she spent a good bit of time interviewing Brad and I. She even had to borrow my paper so she could act like she was reading the questions and recording the answers like I had done. Without further ado, here is the Q&A. The comments in parentheses are mine.
