To Everyone who wrote for ‘Dear Emma’ I’M SO OVERWHELMED BY THE LOVE YOU’VE ALL SHOWN MY DAUGHTER. I know writing a letter and mailing it may have been an inconvenience but you’ve really made a little darling girl SOOOO happy every time she got a letter in the mail. It’s little things like this that can make such a huge impact on a little girl and I know she’ll remember it for a very long time, and even more so when she rereads the letters when she’s even a bit older, more understanding and appreciating. All I can say is God bless you guys for this small act of love. It definitely went a long way, even with her reading skills. We’ll try to do it again next year :). Heart you all! Sweet Mentions and Thank You Thank you MK Fabila for the postcard, Also, thank you for the international postcard! Emma says she wants to make a postcard collection which is a keen idea indeed! Ninong Jacob Christian De Leon for the postcard all the way from Singapore. Also, thanks for the sri lanka postcard and facts! It’s always good to hear from you since you’re such the jet setter.

Slowly Em is learning how to read. She knows a lot of her phonetic sounds and can sometimes put the sounds to form the words. Hopefully when Zi is a couple months, I can concentrate on Em’s reading. Today we read a book about Barney. She chose it so I couldn’t say no 🙂 .
Emma is now 3 and a half years old and she’s been pretty much on the spot with her growth milestones. Last night I heard her read for the first time. Nothing fancy, just simple, single syllable words like yes, no, good, etc. What really amazed me was her ability to identify the letter, recall what it sounds like and then connecting all the other letters together. It’s that moment of epiphany that made me leap for joy from the inside when I heard her read the word “good” for the first time. Guh-oo, Goo-d, guh-oo-d, Good! I heard her yell it out and it made me leap for joy. I know Marchesa put her career on hold when we decided for her to stay with the baby and that decision that we made 4 years ago has really paid off considering how Emma has grown. Good job both of you. You two really make me proud.
