Leaps and Bounds

The other day Emily was walking with a toy that is made to help babies begin walking and then it turns into a little car. Well, you would have thought it was the most amazing thing she had ever experienced. Even better than taking a bath or eating in her highchair (two things she loves dearly).

Brenna was helping her out when she would need to turn around because she had reached a dead end. Brenna is an absolutely wonderful big sister to both Trent and Emily. She was never jealous and never acted out against them. Trent has never acted jealous towards Emily either.

Well while big sister, Brenna, was assisting little sis, Emily, she grabbed a gold beaded play necklace and put it around Emily's neck. Then proceeded to say "Here, Emily, now you can go shopping." I think I had the biggest smile smacked across my face in that moment of sweetness. It even warms my heart to think about it now.

That afternoon when Justin got home from work I had him come to the back room -where all three of the kids were playing together. I brought the 'walking toy' with us. As soon as Emily placed her eyes onto the glorious devise she lit up. A smile so wide. I put it in front of her and Justin placed himself across the room from her. She got up and placed her hands on the yellow handle and away that little chick flew. She sped across the room towards Justin as fast as her tiny little limbs would go. It was so funny. She knew what she was doing and she was going to do it the best she could.
