Let's Talk About It: Polite Introductions

Emma's latest little quirk is that she politely makes sure you know everyone in the room. Once Kendall was born, she quickly decided that it was her job to present her to you: "This is my sister, Kendall," she would say, as she stretched out her right arm.

Now the introductions have extended to Grandmas and Grandpas, Aunts and Uncles, and anyone else she thinks you might not know. She also considers the fact that you may have forgotten who you met last time, so she does this every time someone enters our home or if we arrive at a destination first. I think my Mom has "met" Kendall at least two dozen times!

I have a story to add to this if I may...the Sunday of Kendall's baptism one set of Emma's grandparents were sitting on the couch along with her Aunt Helene. Her cousin Martina had gotten up to go to the bathroom or something when Emma's mom's friends and their little girl walked in. Emma took it upon herself to introduce the newcomers by extending her arm towards the couch saying "and these are my cousins..." It was so funny as I looked over and saw three people much older than Emma that definitely were not her cousins. We couldn't help but laugh out loud cuz it was so cute!

Rose does the same thing with her brother. She likes to ask people "Remember Henry?" At church she's started introducing him: "This is Henry Spenry" and people are usually confused. :P
