Where have I been?

Ooops! I haven't blogged in almost a week. But, now I have lots of pictures to share with you. My birthday lens arrived and I had fun this weekend playing with it. I could actually take pictures downstairs in my dungeon of a townhouse with no problems. Thank goodness! I thought I wouldn't go crazy snapping away but of course I was wrong. Poor Emerson probably didn't get a break for 24 hours.
This is inside with very little sunlight. Since we are an inside townhouse we don't have windows on the side so I always suffer taken pictures of Emerson playing in our living room. But, yet this picture looks so bright and sunny. Emerson was serious interested in the camera and proceeded to chase me.
You may think I'm kidding but seriously this girl can move. See how she has scooted off her blanket already. Be still is not something she understands. Several people have told me she will be crawling soon. I sure hope not. But, in all honesty what is the difference in a kid on all fours and one who can army crawl like a trooper. It definitely has not held her back.
Here is father-daughter enjoying dinner at a friends house.
Next weekend is the close of the pool so I decided for Emerson to experience the fun.
She doesn't have a swim diaper so her attire consisted of cotton bloomers and a cloth diaper cover. Then she wore a 12-18 month swimsuit with a t-shirt over top. She had a sun hat on and couldn't seem to look up from the water so her face is barely in the pictures.

I can say that she has nerves of steel because that water was cold. Not refreshing but "What was I thinking jumping in?" cold. She finally warmed up to the pool idea and kicked the water just like she does in her bathtub. I'm sure she will have a blast next year.
