*Cue the hushed National Geographic voice*

I heard from the locals that the The World’s Cutest Little Girl had been spotted. I popped the zoom lens onto my camera and am on the hunt.

I think I spotted her.

From afar

She seems to fit the description. Let’s see if I can get closer.

Getting closer

She can be camera shy, and I don’t want to frighten her.

Oh no! I’ve been spotted! I’ll pretend I am taking photos of the long weeds grass.

She does not seem to mind my presence. As a matter of fact, she completely ignores me and goes about the very serious task of moving sand from one part of the sand box to the other.


It takes immense concentration.

And drool. A lot of drool.


Drool is like the “sweat” of babies.  Or maybe not at all.  Maybe it has to do with the two-year never-ending process of teething.

That’s as creative as I can get today.

I finally edited some of the photos I have taken this week. When I got to this set of Emily playing in the sandbox I was overwhelmed with a flood of different feelings and emotions. I would love to do a post about how she is my girl, how she is my mini-me, how she is my baby. I do not have the brain cells or energy to give it justice, so I will try to sum up the feelings in one word.

She makes me squishy.

Kind of like how her poop finally is. But not steamy, or stinky, or gross, or even really much like poop at all.

I am sure that she will do something in the near future that will drive me crazy like tell me “No!” or throw something at me, or do the limp fish maneuver when I try to pick her up.

But right now?

My sweetie girl

I’m squishy.

But not at all like poop. Let’s get that straight.

* This is what Graham calls Emily. He says, “Hey, sweetie girl”. Then my heart explodes.

    What great pictures! I have been hoping I would run into you at Tumble Time, but I seem to only ever see your sweet husband. We are back in Summerland and I would love to get together for a stamping night, or even just get together. I don’t have your number otherwise I would just have called. Email me. I would love to hear from you!

    Very Sweet!

    I wish we had a sandbox that big. Rt can barely fit into ours anymore let alone any of his friends…

    i enjoyed the stalking of your prey. Quite clever!

    “Sweetie Girl”? How can that not melt your heart? I love that little girl of yours – even though I don’t know her in person! Haha…If she is anything like the way you describe her, I’m sure she is a precious little ham!

    Hi Angella, I’m not sure if you’ve seen or not, but Walmart is now carrying little miss and little mr. clothing. It is only available in Canada. I saw it in Yorkton on Tuesday.

  23. Elaine June 12, 2008 12:36 pm edit

    Graham calls her “sweetie girl??” OH my I have just melted on to the floor. How sweet is that?!

    She looks good in her “natural habitat!” HA! Cute!
