Emilija is definitely sticking to the stereotypical spiciness of girls from Hunan Province, China. With Emi, you never know what she's going to do next. Hence the inspiration for the title of my blog. There is very rarely a dull moment around here. I've neglected posting photos of the kiddos. So this is my update on them but more specifically about Emi because she's done some interesting things lately.
The first recent Emi craziness was nearly 2 weeks ago. We went to dinner with our dear friend Liz. That was the night Eriks got sick during dinner and slept in the booth almost the whole time. The next day we found out he had strep throat. Upon returning home, Eriks was immediately put to bed. After Emi got dressed for bed way past her usual bedtime, she became wild! She ran circles around her room. Falling down several times on purpose and laughing every time she did. Of course how could Lane and I not laugh either. Then she pulled this:
A few days later she found Eriks karate gear and decided to play dress up. Eriks took a hiatus from karate at the beginning of the year and hadn't done it since then. Just this week he decided to give it a try again. But what was amazing about all this was that she knew, without prompting what to do with it all. She put the vest on, the foot protectors, the headgear and she even knew that the mouthpiece was meant to go in her mouth. It was really cute and how could I not take photos of her in her martial art glory.
And the last bit of recent craziness came from Emi last night. We were finishing up coconut creme pie from Father's Day. Emi decided that it wasn't only delicious, but made for a great facial. We took out the video camera too. Hopefully I can get some stuff uploaded and posted here. I'm behind in video posting. It was funny watching her smear it on her face and then lick her fingers. Of course she was promptly given a bath afterward.
