6 years + 8 months

Emily's exciting event for this month was losing her second tooth just today!  The new tooth was almost all the way in behind the baby tooth just like the first one.  Hopefully it will quickly move into place, although there doesn't seem to be much room for it.

Although she's not currently taking piano lessons, Emily still loves musical activities.  She has been fascinated by "The Star-Spangled Banner" lately.  She has all the words down and most of the melody, but not the correct order of melody line.  She repeats the first part over and skips the high part.  However, I've decided she's definitely a soprano as she is usually singing things in keys well above what I could ever hit.  She also likes to turn random things into musical instruments.  Below is her cup band.

For reading, Emily has been recently introduced to Pippi Longstocking.  We started reading Alice in Wonderland out loud together when she found a copy and inquired about it, but she soon lost interest with the flowery language.  She really loves all the American Girl books.  She's currently working on writing a book called Meet Emily because she doesn't want to wait until she's nine before they write a series of books about her. ;)
