Where's Emma?

Emma, being her completely adorable self, throws both hands up in the air and grabs her head, whenever we say...Where's Emma? She kept doing it during her bubble bath last night when I'd ask her so we got to wash her hair about six times! She has also been doing this cutesy thing of tilting her head and smiling like "yeah...I know I'm cute" whenever someone tells her she is cute. It is seriously too funny. I wish I could put the video up here for all to see. :)

She is our little social butterfly now...if she sees another little kid, she will walk right up to them and start babbling. This morning at a consignment sale, she was ready to just walk away with this other family with two little was like see ya later, Mom!

Anyways, Emma has also taken up the not so cute habit of screaming...loudly in the bathtub, in the car, in the house and in stores. It is bad. We have been trying to stay after her and sternly telling her no while covering her mouth but it just isn't working. She started it last weekend while we were shopping at BAM and when I told her no, she threw herself onto the ground and started screaming at the top of her lungs. I had to carry her out to the car and I admit that she got her second real spanking from me. Not that she really felt it through her diaper but still. I've been told that it is just her age and also that it is a girl thing but I hope it ends sooner rather than later. It makes it so hard to drive, hard to cook, hard to shop and just plain hard to think! Did your child like to scream around 14 months? What did you do? How do I make it stop?
