Why are you crying?!

Wow she looks like Ephrim!

Anyway, so it was cute then, you even feel sad for them when they have to cry about something... but three years later?!

I am getting frustrated now. We have worked hard on Emma this last year and we've worked hard on how we relate to Emma this year. She was a very selfish conceited little girl, now there is a shadow of that but for the most part she is a ball of frustration and sadness. She cries all the time and has even starting wailing for me at bedtime. I feel sad for her and am wondering what to do next. While typing this I can see that she needs an outlet, she needs a way to deal with her emotions. She still thinks that praying is weird and we're working on that, but I feel like she needs her own private hobby or something along those lines. I'm also thinking that having a daily pow wow with her might help too. A time for just she and I and she can just talk and maybe share a bit about what's going on in her head.

Another concern that I have is that she is always tired, she says it and she acts it. As soon as she is done breakfast she wants to get back into bed and by the time six o'clock rolls around she really could go to sleep.

Maybe she's anemic? I have also always worried about her heart too. Maybe I will get that checked out too, she is genetically predisposed?

Anyway pray for us right now as it is especially hard on Dalen at bedtime and it's no piece of cake for me either!

I really do adore my girl. She is the lovliest thing in my world.

Okay you look AMAZING in that picture of you and Emma!

I am praying for you as you go through this time with her. We are going through similar thing's with Tristan and it's a tough place to be in! Training up our children is not easy work that's for sure!
