a photo of Emmet every week in 2017
For the past few weeks, now that the weather has cooled down a bit, Emmet and I have been enjoying daily walks. Our favorite days are they days that I have enough energy to go for a longer walk and we can go on the trails behind the museum and let Emmet stretch out his legs. He falls so behind before I stop, turn back, and wait while he runs and giggles all the way to me. We repeat this over and over until we get to a place where he might run into the street again. He LOVES it. In fact, now most of the time he is pretty dissatisfied if we DON'T stop so that he can walk too. He loves to be on his feet and run where he wants to go. I swear, I now understand why parents get leashes for their kids! I won't ever get one, so we just enjoy the places where it is safe to run free.
