Brad here: Lindsey is working hard again tonight. I am so proud of her. I often tell people that she is the hardest working person that I know. Emma is already following in Lindsey’s footsteps. This little girl has fully devoted herself to “Walking Bootcamp.” She has 2 different “walk-behind” toys (a learn to walk convertible wagon, and a fisher price dog that sings songs of encouragement.) Emma has started her bootcamp by running intervals. She alternates sprints and a slow, steady pace. One of her favorite things is running a sprint behind one of her toys, and then switch to the other walk-behind without sitting down.
With all this racing around, a little girl works up an appetite. Emma loves her snacks and is getting fired up about the cheerios.
Emma: I don’t know what all this fuss is about. Dad has been walking as long as I can remember. I get tired of crawling on my knees all the time, so I figured I would give this walking thing a shot. It’s hard work, but it’s kinda fun. I love to eat some cheerios. Does anyone know why dad is always taking pictures of me eating these snacks?
Emma: Today I have the winter blues! I played hard today and then read my mail. I then got a bright idea: go get my sand toys and maybe.. just maybe.. if I play hard enough with those toys I'll find myself at the beach!!
Get me to the beach momma!!!
Emma: Well, I woke up and I am still not at the beach but Lulu is here!!! she came to play with me while mom and dad work! I played with her jewelry all day long!
Today Emma enjoyed her first egg hunt. She found one egg... that was sitting on top of a chair and Brad helped her find another. She was content with two eggs. One for each hand I guess! Em was not a huge fan of the easter bunny but I think she reacted better to the bunny than to Santa Claus!
Well, Mom and Dad are up to it again. They brought me to see this huge rabbit! He could have eaten me for a mid afternoon snack. I might also add it WAS mid afternoon! I tried to be brave but my emotions got the best of me!
Emma had a good day playing with Warner and Ms. Millie today. When we got home from work Emma had fun swinging and playing some more! She is gaining confidence in walking. Any day now she is going to leave her walking toy and strut down the hallway on her own!
Pip giving Dad a swift kick in the rear!
Emma: I have not felt too sporty today. I"m tired and don't really want to eat much. Ms. Millie held me all day. When mom got home I heard her talking to Ms. Millie and they discussed bringing me to the doctor tomorrow!!! I decided to perk up real quick!! Hopefully after a good nights sleep I'll feel better.
Speaking of a good night sleep. Last night I was mischievous!! I went to bed around 7 but woke up around 11 and could not go back to sleep. Mom finally took me for a car ride and I still could not fall asleep. When we pulled back into the garage after our looong car ride I gave mom a big smile and laugh and promptly fell asleep in my crib! The look on mom's face when I smiled at her was priceless!!
After the discussion about going to the doctor tomorrow I decided to gather all my friends together and give them a speech about how I was NOT going to the doctor tomorrow!!
Emma feels a lot better today! She was back to playing, laughing and participating in her new favorite game: dog pile! She loves to dog pile on top of anyone! Here's a picture of Em walking down the hallway in her LA Tech T shirt! Go dawgs!! My dad is arriving tonight to watch Em tomorrow while Millie is out of town for a long weekend.
