Like Father, Like Daughter

This week Tyler has been away on a business trip in Vegas (hmmm...) and, while I've missed him, I've also become keenly aware that he is with me, just in the form of Emi.

Tyler is very creative and quite resourceful. He is always looking for new ways to use household items. Here is Emi doing her favorite thing (this week anyway): playing with our recyclables. Just like her Pop, Emi has found a new home for our trash...or perhaps the lectures I've recently given her about the economy have paid off and she is creating a "new toy" for herself.



Recently, I've noticed that Emi is quite mischievous. As her personality reveals itself, I'm finding more and more that she takes after Dad. Even though I've known Emi's Dad almost all my life, there are times when I am not sure if he is being serious. (99.9% of the time Tyler is NOT serious.)


If mannerism and personality similiarities are not convincing enough, it is obvious to me that Emi is Tyler's mini-me. I think the following photos demonstrate this best. Hello, can we say spitting image?



We are very excited for Dad to be home today. Emi and I have really missed him, and so has the garbage and the laundry. Welcome home Ty!

Funny! They do look a lot alike. I guess your job was just to carry her for 9 months.

Jillene said...

My kids are all spitting images of their dad. All 3 of them.

She is ADORABLE BTW!! And I love how inventive she is!!

amanda said...

SO CUTE!!

Ali said...

Now that's a creative kid! She can make a toy out of anything!

shopannies said...

too sweet my daughter says that her baby can tell even a 5 month old that daddy is not home yet either so no matter what they may say those babies are aware of where there daddy is

thanks for visiting my blog

Rachel said...

Cute pics!!! I see a resemblence for sure....my husband was away on business in Vegas a week ago...I wish I could go to Vegas for "work"!

B said...

What an awesome toy! I love the creativity kids have, but at the same time I am glad that we outgrow some of it. If I served my family imaginary soup for dinner, sat my stuffed animals (though sadly I realize I have NONE as an adult) at the table for lunch, or put a water bottle in toaster oven, I'm sure they wouldn't think it was so cute.

Mary Moore said...

Hilarious. Glad he's coming home today!

Julie said...

Too funny! She is too cute! Isn't it great when the hubby's home!!

Kathy said...

I love imaginitive children, especially if they have some attitude to accompany the imagination :) Those last two pics are hilarious by the way.

Emi is just precious!!!
YAY for daddy coming home!

Debbie said...

I love the recycling in the toaster oven. I must try that!

forever folding laundry said...

Oh, Kace, you are so outnumbered! There's two of them!! =)

Love those pictures. She's a total doll, as always!

FrankandMary said...

And so has the garbage and laundry....hahaha. I took on more of my Dad's traits than I am sure I ever admitted to him.

Found your journal thru Betty.

Emi is adorable and I am very glad she will have Daddy back soon.

My son is just like my husband - chatterbox, hungry all the time, full of energy! They're a handful and I love 'em.

rychelle said...

spitting image. for sure.

Live.Love.Eat said...

Oh, the resemblance is so there. So cute!!!! And I can't believe she put the trash in the toaster oven!!!!!

Me said...

I love the creative things kids come up with! Too cute!

Lana said...

Those pictures are too cute! Love the "new toys". It makes me wonder why we as parents even bother buying toys!

Grand Pooba said...

Your so funny! You little Emi is a cutie pie! And your hub too :)

Heather of the EO said...

Trouble indeed. You will surely never lack in the entertainment area. :)

This time? fluthed (I'm going to have to make up a meaning for that one..."I'm so fluthed," meaning wiped out. I like it.)

The Blonde Duck said...

I love the picture at the end! So funny!

Counselormama said...

It's hard when they are out of town. Great pics!

peewee said...

she is impossibly cute!

Oh, and HEY! at least you won't have to buy her an easy bake oven....which probably explains why i never got one either.

Tori C. (The Sweet Jelly Bean) said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, too! Your lil one is too cute!

Noah's Mommy said...

I definitely see a resemblence in the "trouble looking to happen" type of way....and maybe she thought the toaster was an incenerator.....you know the old school kind....or she was beaming it up....

Yaya said...

So cute!



Love the (hmmm....)!

-I'm gonna write about acupuncture in a post, I've had a bunch of inquiries!

Peaches said...

I love the pictures of them capturing the same expression. Too cute!!

My oldest daughter takes after her father. Once I told her she was the slowest person in America and she said "I thought that was Daddy."

Helene said...

I giggled looking at the pic of her stuffing the plastic water bottle in the toaster oven! I could see my little ones doing that!!!

My husband has business trips all the time to Vegas. And then he complains how tough it is to travel all the time. Understandably, I have a hard time feeling sorry for him!!

Lori said...

Kacey,

I'm laughing at Tyler's picture. If he ever writes a motivational book, this picture could be on the cover.

"And yes, you, too, could be as marvelous as me!"

pam said...

Very sweet way to welcome Daddy home.

Nana said...

wenbren explains it all said...
