Hooray for Spring!

It has been gorgeous here in New England! The weather has been lovely, the flowers are starting to bloom, and our swing-set is finally snow free! Last year, we had to carry Emma into the clubhouse, slide down with her or hold her hand, and put her in the baby swing. This year, Little Miss Independent wasted no time in telling us "Emma do it!" Check out her face~she was so excited!
This one cracks me up~as if she is saying, "Giffy, don't even think about helping me!." LOL
Here she is, pleased as could be with herself!
And there she goes! Her favorite part is being launched off the end of the slide onto the grass. Don't worry, Mom~she only flies about four feet! (Just kidding~about 6 inches!)
Gliding with Mommy...
And no more baby swing! She kept telling saying, "Faster, Papa!"
You go, girl!

That second picture is just gorgeous, I love the way the light falls on her hair. Of course *every* picture of Emma is totally beautiful! :D

D'you think if I start showing my mom pictures of your grandbaby that she'll stop with the anvil-size hints about wanting her own grandbaby, or would that make it worse? Hmm...

I was just remembering the pictures that we took of Emma at the park near my house. Wow. She sure has grown. So, much fun to watch her become a little girl.
