Another {Lovely} Weekend Come and Gone

4.23.2012

I love weekends. I really, really do. And this weekend was no exception. It was laid-back and relaxed and we had the best time... doing a whole lot of nothing.

We napped, we ate, and we spent lots of time in the water. It was just perfect.

As always, we spent a few hours at the pool on Friday afternoon. Emerson had a blast kicking and splashing.

But she was not thrilled when it was time to get out.

On Saturday we decided to head to the beach. We haven't been in about a month and I am so glad we went! The ocean water is finally warm enough to get in and Emerson loved sitting in the sand.
Of course, all that wading wore her out and for the first time in months she actually took a nap somewhere other than her crib or carseat.
Jesse and I took full advantage of this and read magazines and laid out. It was so nice to just relax!
After she woke up we took her over to the large grassy area near the beach so that she could play.
She was all over the place! The huge open area and the lawn furniture gave her plenty of opportunities to explore and practice walking.

She did take a little spill though and like the good mother that I am, I got it on video. ;)
Don't worry- she was fine and didn't even cry. I think she's getting used to falling! Good thing she's tough. :)

On that note, I think we can officially say that we have a walker! I couldn't quite decide if we could consider her a walker just yet but once she started walking across the room and choosing to walk more than crawl I knew it was true.
My baby girl can really walk!
We're both pretty excited about it!
Hope your weekend was as lovely as ours!

Way to go Emerson!!! We are soooo close. She's taken a few steps, but isn't doing it on her own... only when we have her walk back and forth between the two of us.
