At the Park with Mommy


Elena and Emma have been spending a lot of time at the park lately. Emma likes to blow bubbles, kick the soccer ball, go down the slide, and ride the swing. Emma is signing more and more these days. Words like “dog”, “bird”, “flower”, “apple” “ball”, and “duck” have made their way into her vocabulary which she signs frequently when she sees them at the park. She is like a little sponge these days and will also sign words Elena and I use while we are having a conversation. She is like a little interpreter for the hearing impaired.


Emma enjoys playing with her shovel but doesn’t like to get sand on her hands. She gets this from her Daddy. 🙂 In this picture Emma has fallen down and refuses to touch the sand to pick herself up. The look of dissatisfaction is aimed toward her Mother who is encouraging her to stand up on her own. In cases like this, Emma prefers to be rescued without soiling her fingers.


  1. Emma's Mom says

    Dear Emma,
    I love spending time with you at the park. You make me slow down and experience life through your eyes. It is the neatest thing! I love when you hear birds chirping and you sign “bird” or when you want to kick the ball around and you let me know by signing “ball”. I love your smile when you are on the swing and how you look at every little thing in such detail. I love hearing you say “What’s this?” a hundred times a day. Your curiosity at this young age amazes me. You are such a happy baby! You always make me laugh and I enjoy every minute that I spend with you.

    I love you dearly,
    Mommy 🙂
