What's Emma Grace been up to?

Rachel here. Emma Grace is all over the place. I put tasks on her shelves only to have her throw them on the floor, and then she meanders around the house to get into shenanigans... or she does the things on Reese's shelves... and by does the things on Reese's shelves, I mean she throws those things on the floor as well. :)

Next week I'm going to put the crayon tin on her shelf, and she'll ignore it. Last week, she poured every single one on the floor... repeatedly. She managed to put a handful of them back in the can, but as soon as I put the can back under the easel, she would pour them back onto the floor. She's such a charmer that one.
She does the same thing with Reese's Little Miss Sunshine band aid tin.

This is a hammering toy, but Em just likes to put the pieces in the holes.
Our generic Melissa & Doug magnetic bug puzzle. It was on sale at Michael's for $2. Reese loves them, and Emma definitely gets a kick out of anything Reese does.
The girls both love the pea pod seesaw at the library, and when I saw this brand new IKEA model at the consignment sale for $4 I knew I had to have it.
EG can get the animals to the correct spots on her puzzle, but she definitely can't quite get them in the holes yet.
Emma Grace is big into wearing things around her neck. She's always digging in the dress up drawer to accessorize.
If she doesn't find what she wants... she wears her sister's underpants... seriously. (And yes, those are Christmas pajamas... I'm getting my money's worth this go 'round.)
This week I introduced the color orange to go with all of our Halloween shenanigans. You can really tell she's learning a lot... taking it all in. ;)
Halloween "rattles."
Emma Grace loves to play with her basket of gourds. She tends to lick them and pretend they are ice cream cones. She'll lick it and then say "Mmmm... nunny!"
I can't tell you how many jam sessions/dance parties we had this week.
The girls play with play doh every. single. day. without. failure.
Each of the three pumpkin baskets had Fall/Halloween trinkets in them. One had bouncy eyeballs, one had silk Fall leaves, and the last had glow in the dark spiders.
Em's new favorite thing is sitting on the potty, which is more than I can say Reese would do FOR THE LONGEST TIME. I sat her on it the other day just to see what she would do. Now she wants to be on it all the time. She'll come up to me, touch her diaper, and say "potty." I strip her down, and then she just pops a squat and relaxes. She brushes her teeth, reads, you name it... except for actually using it. :) It's REALLY REALLY cute.
Emma Grace loves to pull Reese's tasks off of her shelf and attempt to do them herself. She mocks us all big time, but never gets it quite right. ;)
Painting with REAL paint... washable of course.
All hail Crayola and their Color Wonder products!
She REALLY dug dumping the spiders out of the jar and then putting them back in. :)
I have a few more activities that Reese did last Friday to post, but we have a busy weekend of marathon trick or treating, AND Bryan and I have promised one another to have a computer free weekend. That means after nap time tomorrow I leave the world of cyber until Sunday evening. So until then... HAPPY HAUNTING!
