More of my fave pics of my fave little girl

Hope Floats

My super talented friend Wrenda sent me a message that her neighbor had baled hay and did I want to do some pics of Emerson. Not just yeah...but hell yeah. I love them....they turned out great....they always do when Wrenda is involved.

I told my friend Jenna about what I put her in...the little, flowy cornflower blue floral dress and cowboy boots and she said, "oh, that reminds me of Hope Floats!!". I love that movie (it may have something to do with Harry Connick, Jr.)!!! He could totally read me the phone book and I would listen all day. If you haven't seen't the nearest video store...or netflix..or whatever!! Just thought I'd put in one of my fave lines from the movie!!

Bernice Pruitt:My dad says that childhood is the happiest time of my life. But, I think he's wrong. I think my mom's right. She says that....
Birdie Pruitt:Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And, it will too....

That's one of the smartest things I've ever heard.

Sprinklers and Kiddie Pools

Today I ventured out of my comfort zone to a playdate. I am finding it difficult to socialize Emerson with kids her age as my core group of friends all have kids much older and I find that I don't relate to people that do have kids Emerson's age...but I went anyway. I had a nice pressure to impress...just a chance for Emerson to be around other kids.

Flips and Rolls

I recently enrolled Emerson in a toddler tumbler gymastics class. I thought it would be a good opportunity to socialize her with other kids her age and also to burn off some energy!!! We have gone for 3 weeks now and she came home after the second week and started doing absolutely perfect rollovers. She sure makes her momma proud!!!

I remember as a kid taking gymnastics for many years....Mary Lou Retton, I am not, but I loved it!!! I watched a movie about Nadia Comaneci so many times, over and over!!! I always watch all of the women's gymnastics during the summer Olympics!! These tiny little girls are amazing!!

Oh my Goodness....

So, I had the best intentions of blogging more frequently, life ofcourse, was uncooperative. My beloved 7 year old PC died suddenly...forcing me to get this delightfully shiny HP DV-7 notebook with a ginormous 17 inch screen. Oh, and I now have hubby says he'll never see me now.

Emerson started walking since my last post. And life changed as I know it now that she is mobile. This girl has no fear. She climbs barstools, book cases, coffee tables, couches ginormous king sized bed. I enrolled her in a little toddler gymnastics class...which she loves and runs for 40 minutes solid in a padded environment. She was watching bigger girls do roll-overs last week, came home and repeated. So cute!!!

Life has been full of changes and adjustments lately...hopefully me and my little blog will get more acquainted soon!!!
