    I wonder if Emmy's ajumma walk is similar to LN's "funny walk" where she sticks out her tummy and sort of waddles while somehow looking defiant.

    I LOVE the corn smile! That's the cutest smile I've seen all day!

    Does she wear socks with clogs or sandals that slap-slap the bottom of her feet as she walks?

    I really like the last picture, where she has her backpack *and* a purse. Too cute! I'd love to see that ajumma walk.

    Carol, reading your comment made me bust out laughing! I'll have to look into getting her a pair of old lady black sandals and "matching" white athletic ankle socks. So hip!

    And ladies, the proper ajumma walk is as follows:
    1. Hold hands behind waist
    2. Bend over a bit
    3. Shuffle away slowly
    The funniest thing is that she looks so PROUD to be doing it! LOL

    I keep coming back for the corn smile :-)

    Oh good, glad you explained the ajumma walk—it's exactly what I pictured in my head. Although Carol's question and MN's 'looking defiant' made me laugh!

    Emmy's corn smile: best. smile. ever.

    Love her getup too—she's so fashionable and ready to go. School? Or shopping? I can't figure out which! :)

    Seriously! That girl LOVES to dress-up... and she picks all of her ensembles by herself. She'll be quite the fashionista one day. Latest fad: cute hats. And um, oven mitts.

    I can't get over all the cuteness. I hope we get to see pictures of the ballet outfit.

    OVEN MITTS!! Now that's hysterical. Please get a picture up of that!
