Photo Story Friday: Last But Not Least

This is the last addition in my introductory series.  Aren't you glad I only have three kids.

This is Emma.

Emma was born with red hair, and she has the fiery personality to go with it.  She inherited the spirited Irish blood that flows in my families veins, it's also been known to cause stubbornness.

She shows great potential as a leader.  She runs our house with an iron fist, she gets what ever wants when she wants it.  She can get anything out of anyone.  And if pure persuasion doesn't work, she simply smiles.

She loves to be the center of attention.  She is a performer, she loves to dance and sing for a crowd.  She also loves to have her picture taken.  She runs every time I have my camera out, whether I want her in the frame or not.

Emma's favorite thing to do is sit on your lap and intertwine her fingers in yours.  She calls it "holdy handy".  It's how she goes to sleep at night and the first thing she wants when she wakes up.  It's her security, and her affection all wrapped up into one.  She also hates to be alone, she loves to be in a room full of people and chaos.

Emma has an inquisitive mind.  She watches everything and misses nothing.  She can solve any problem that faces her.  She stands back and looks at a problem, thinks for a short moment then barrels in head first until she gets the result that she wants. 

Emma loves kisses and hugs.  She loves her dad and grandpa.  She makes me laugh.  She is sweet and loving, and very physical in her expression of these emotions.

Emma is independent, smart, and a tease.  And what a joy she is to have in our family, it wouldn't be complete without her.

Sounds like she will be able to handle whatever comes in life.

And I totally understand the stubborn child thing. My daughter is a red head.

Oh Heidi, she is just gorgeous!
I can see how she gets what she wants, but aren't her methods great too?
I love your account of the "holdy handy"- once again, your love shines through. And of course, I love that she had red hair- it's a sign of spirit, and spirit is good!
Emma will go far in life.

She sounds a lot like my fiery Red Head. I hope she enjoys her red hair. My daughter gets so much positive attention over her red locks.
