Spring and Summer Fun!

I'm sorry I haven't posted in so long. Life has been busy. Seems like the older she gets the busier I get.
Emme Claire is about 14 1/2 months old now. She started walking about 2 weeks after her 1st birthday and she didn't cut her first tooth until after she turned one also. She now has 4 teeth (2 on bottom and 2 on top) and I can see where 2 more are trying to come in on the top.
She is growing like a weed and learning new things everyday. She is so smart! She learns things very quickly. Sometimes (most times) she surprises me with how smart she is. I'm a proud Momma!
She has her Daddy and myself wrapped around her little finger and she knows it!

I'm going to post a few pics from the last couple of months. In June we went on vacation. My mom and brother went with us. We went to Atlanta, GA for one night then drove on to the Isle of Palms, SC for five nights then we drove to Asheville, NC for one night and then we spent a day in Gatlinburg, TN and the last night we stayed in Birmingham, AL before heading back home. We had a good time and I wasn't ready to come home. We went to the Georgia Aquarium when we were in Atlanta and Emme Claire loved it! We stayed in a beach front villa in the Wild Dunes Resort on the Isle of Palms. The ocean was beautiful and Emme Claire loved the water and the sand! She also loved the pools at our villa. She played in the kiddie pool (shallow about 1 1/2 ft deep) and she also played in the big pool. She never wanted to get out of the water. We also got to see the city of Charleston while in SC. Then we went to Asheville to the Biltmore Estate. We had already been there in November when EC was 7 months old but my mom and brother had never been and since we were so close we thought it would be a good time to go again. When we left Asheville we drove through the Smokey Mountains to Gatlinburg and spent a few hours there before heading to Birmingham for our last night.

All these pictures are from our family vacation. I'll try to post more pics soon. Enjoy!

My sweet girl on the beach, as happy as can be!

We are going to have to take her to the beach at least once a year.
