Tiny Tot Nature Spot- The River Bank

We had a busy weekend. These are from our trip to the zoo's Tiny Tot Nature Spot. The girls have a blast at the river bank or mini-beach as Madison calls it. Basically, an area for young kids to splash in and play with sand.

Fiesta Time in San Antonio

We had a great time at The Battle of Flowers Parade this weekend. It's an annual tradition here in San Antonio, along with the night parade, carnival, a variety of fairs, mexican food and mariachis. It had been a while since I attended any of the festivities but this year I took Madison and her friend Molly. This was Madison's first time going. Since the crowds tend to get big I was nervous to take Emma but we will make sure to take her next year.

Emma Walks

On April 16 my little chubby lovey decided to take her first steps at 11 months. She was so proud of herself and so were we.


This past week I had two days off work thanks to the end of tax season. One of those days I decided to try braiding Madison's hair for the first time. She kept complaining that I was pulling on it and kept wiggling around. Well, I told her what my mom always told me, "You want to look pretty? Well, sometimes beauty hurts!" That seemed to calm her down a bit. The next morning we were getting ready for the dentist and she had a painful look on her face. I asked what was wrong and this is what she came up with, " Oh Mommy, I'm so pretty it hurts!" I just about died laughing at her interpretation of my comment.

One step here, one step there.....

That's right! Emma started taking her first steps this weekend. A little step here and there, nothing major but I just know that any day now she'll let go and start walking. THEN, the real fun begins. She is so cute about it. She'll be sitting on the floor then gets up on her own, looks around to see if anyone is looking, then if she thinks no one is watching she'll take one or two steps then sit back down. She's such a cutie pie!! If we make a big deal about it she'll get a great big smile on her face and starts to clap so hard that she falls back.

I can't believe this time is here already. Seems like just yesterday I was waiting for her to pick her head up on her own. Now she's almost walking. WOW!
