This is Alina. She's 3 years old and I love her to bits. I can absolutely guarantee that I'm her favorite aunt, because no one plays with her as much as I do. She's fiercely independent and hilarious. She's also the biggest troublemaker I've ever seen. I've been chasing her around since she learned to crawl. A couple of days ago my sister-in-law told us on Facebook that while she was changing Emma (my younger niece), Alina got baby powder all over her cell phone. This, of course, is not a major issue, but Alina decided it was necessary to go and wash the phone. She comes back and says "Look, Mama, all clean!" This all happened in a matter of 60 seconds. Now my sister's left without a phone. Hahahaha.
She's really girly too. She walks around in her mom's heels and loves dressing up as a princess. I've used this as an excuse to show her every single Disney Princess movie whenever she's at our house. It's fun showing her Disney movies, because it gives me an excuse to watch them too (and force my mom to buy different Disney DVDs for "the child's sake"). Right now her favorite movie is Tarzan. :D
This is Emma. She's turning 1 in 2 days. :) She's honestly the sweetest little baby ever. She's always cheerful and I don't think I've ever seen a child smile as much as she does (not that I have much experience with other children). I have a lot of babbling conversations with her, because she's just learning to make funny noises, and she gets excited when I make funny noises back at her. She learned to crawl in one week, and within the second week, she was already walking! Haha, whenever she comes over, we have to seal off every possible staircase and open area, because if you take your eyes off of her for one second, she'll be halfway up the stairs. She also loves pressing the keys on my piano, so I'm hoping someday I'll be able to teach her piano. She's such a sweet and adorable little child, and I love seeing her grow. I can't wait for her toddler years.

I hope this post wasn't too sappy haha. I just figured, since they're so important to me, it might be nice to do a post about them. Plus, it gets me another post during BEDA. :)
