Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to my wonderful husband! Dave, you are a blessing to all who know you. Emily is a lucky little girl to have you as her Daddy. And I am especially blessed to have such a great partner in this challenge known as parenthood. We're a great team baby! Love you!

This weekend Dave and I took Emily to Pop and MeMaw's house in Montevallo, AL. Saturday we went swimming in the pool. Daddy and Pop went to Wal-Mart to buy her this large crab floaty. Emily seemed to really enjoy it.

Emily debuted her itsy bitsy teeney weeney yellow polka dot bikini. It sure was cute, but after 20 minutes in the sun we added Daddy's giant white T-shirt to her ensemble.

She has recently entered that "separation anxiety" phase which means she pretty much wants Mommy all the time. We had fun and although she was either in my arms or actively looking for me, she wasn't scared of the water at all. Daddy even splashed us a couple of times jumping in and she laughed. That's my girl!

Below is a video clip of my adventurous little girl. Daddy's arms wore out before she got tired of this game. That little laugh is just too cute!

Pop sure enjoyed his time with his girl. And Emily LOVES her Pop. He makes funny noises.

After pool time, we took Emily inside for lunch. She is the funniest kid ever. And by the way, this handy little contraption is a mesh feeder. You can stick frozen fruit like bananas, apples or even just ice inside it and close it up. Then they chew on it and you don't have to worry about large chunks of food getting caught in their throat. It is a GREAT teething tool and it teaches them how to chew. This picture just cracks me up!

Sunday morning Daddy and Pop went to pick blueberries. They took Emily on a short ride around the yard first. She did great. My little country girl.

As I was packing up to get ready to come home, Emily enjoyed a little "Curious Buddies" DVD. This pose is too cute. And I just have to point out the pink sneakers. Love them! It was a perfect first Father's Day. Thanks to MeMaw and Pop for a great time as usual.
