Emma Turns 5

Emma felt like pretty big business turning five this year since now she is "one whole hand."  The entire day was pretty much a big celebration.  Brad picked up donuts for Emma to take to share with her class and she got to wear the birthday crown all day.  For dinner, Emma requested pizza, which Win and Riri joined us for.  After pizza, it was on to presents and cake.  We had one tired 5 year old girl when it was all said and done.

The following day, Emma went in for her 5 year check-up, which included an eye exam and hearing test this year.  She passed both easily and finally tipped the scales at 40 pounds.  I can't remember height off hand but she stayed right in the 85-90th percentile.  I think it is safe to say that she is hitting all of her milestones since they asked things like, "Can she write her first name and recognize her last name?", "Can she count to 20?", "Can she recognize 5 colors?"  Uh, "yes, yes, and yes."  Happy birthday sweet Emma; we can't believe you are five!
