Her mother's daughter

We found ourselves with a little extra time before we had to leave for school this morning. I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to take some pictures of Emerson in the new skirt that I made her and give her a chance to run off some energy. So, we went to play outside for a few minutes. This is how it went:

"Emerson, will you come stand over here so mommy can take one quick picture?"

"Emerson will you show me a pretty smile?"

"Emerson, it is almost time to go to school. Will you please let me take your picture?"

"Emy, you are being so silly. Mommy really wants to take a picture of your pretty new skirt. Will you please hold still?"

"Emerson, if you come over here and let me take your picture then I will let you have a fig newton on the way to school."

Ah, that worked! She definitely gets her love of cookies from mommy.
PS- Please don't leave me any comments about how terrible it is to bribe my child with food, especially over such trivial things as pictures. I am fully aware of this:)
