Emma's smile

Last week while attempting to spend a nice famiy day out and about, my wallet was stolen. As I was about to pay for some items at the Gap I saw my zipper open and no wallet in sight. After so many previous false alarms where my heart sinks to my spine as I frantically try to loctate my wallet, I knew this time I would not find it at the bottom of my purse. The funny thing was that I was surprisingly calm. After a string of less than desirable events that have happened to me in the past months, I just felt numb and couldn't react. I look over to Emma who was mindfully watching people, and she looked up at me and just smiled. Her smile just let me know that it was all going to be ok. I realized that in the scope of things, it is just a wallet that was worth more than anything it had inside but when compared to the value of having Emma in my life, was worthless. As cheesy as this is, at times you need to just reflect and take things in perspective. Every day with Emma, she grants me the ability to appreciate what really is important in life and I can gladly say goodbye to my strong attachment to material items. I'm not saying I dont go gaga over each new season at Anthropolgie, but.....I mean, just look at her...the lil' punk...She is my Gucci purse.

pretty girl

Emma standing up on her own


I will cut you all when I get out!

haha, I see you!

I'm pooped

Reow! Savage child.


Am i breaking your heart yet?

I want to break free

I said no pictures!

The good folks of Inkwood Books in Tampa were in town for BEA, Book Expo America, and they invited us to come check it out. Emma was the star scoring 3 free books based on cuteness. She even had her own badge, in case we "misplaced her".

Free is always tastier

Excuse me, VIP coming through

I said, all eyes to the left.


Wha wha?

Emma a crawlin'

It was back in May that Emma started doing her army crawl, also known as the snake. She was so determined, tongue sticking out and grunting. All of a sudden my wee one was mobile. She could not be still and just wanted to learn the next moves that would allow her to walk. Little by little she got stronger and last week she took her first official crawl on all fours. She was proud, and I even prouder. Today she is a punk, pulling herself up on everything and like a true explorer she is climbing all that needs conquering. I swear she will be the death of me. She has adventure in her blood and shows no fear in her eyes. She is never brought down, but may be sidelined by my occasional "oh my god". She is relentless and determined and takes after her father in her quest for perfection.
