Our Little Monkey

Not that I in any way believe in the whole Chinese zodiac thing, but interestingly enough - Emma was born in the year of the Monkey. And yes, she is quite the little monkey. This was taken during gymnastics. To give a little bit of a visual, the place she takes gymnastics is in an industrial type building so the ceiling is quite high. The rope area is built up off the ground but it's still a LONG way up to the top. Little Emma goes up that rope like it's no big deal and it just cracks me up!

They also have a climbing net over on the other side of the building and she was going up that thing when she was a little bitty chicka. Her teacher/coach would turn around to say something to another child & up the net she would go. I would bust out laughing when the coach would turn back and around, see Emma and say "Oh dear".

Believe me when I say, we've said our share of "oh dears" since the day she became ours.

All that to say, she's been a little monkey since day 1!

Oh my!!! She is really high. It makes me nervous to look at that picture. Emma really is a little monkey.

Amazing. I keep thinking that rope looks really rough and scratchy and how it must hurt her legs. I am very impressed.

lol.....Lottie was born in the year of the Monkey too...I don't believe in all of that but it is certainly curious huh? Lottie can grasp things with her toes like no one I have ever seen....just like a monkey!
