Jumping Bean

Emerson is a jolly jumper rookie... not that you'd be able to tell last night.  In an effort to keep her happy and occupied for the last hour before bed, Doug and I decided to put her in the jolly jumper for the first time and let her go for it.  She totally rocked it.  There was very little hanging... and a lot of jumping.

The moment we let Emerson go, her little legs sprung into action and with this stoic, serious expression on her face she bounced away...



She soon realized how much fun bouncing can be.  For the next 20 minutes she jumped and squealed... jumped and squealed.  Doug and I were like first time parents all over again, laughing, clapping, making funny faces, taking way too many pictures and video clips.  It was the best part of my day.  I opted to not put the video clip up on the blog because I sound like a total idiot shouting in the background: "Hello free time!!!"



And in case you're wondering... those are socks on her hands (no they are not arm leg warmers inspired by this week's Glee episode).  Emerson loves to scratch her face and it's making her face break out into the most terrible rashes.  So, she now wears socks on her hands all day long-- instead of clawing at her face she sucks on her sock covered hands.  Who knows... maybe she's going to inspire a new trend... socks on the hands.



And just for comparison's sake-- click here to see Caleb's first experience in the jolly jumper.  Caleb, I think your sister's got you beat...
