|"Emma Thinks You're Funny" (Granddaughter's portrait Month 3), oil, 8"h x 8"w, ©2016 Jill Banks|
My Mom, Dad, husband Randy and I all shared the joy of a short one-day visit to see granddaughter Emma and her mom and dad -- son Sam and daughter-in-law Michelle.
Emma was showing off. At a few days shy of becoming a three-month old, she rolled over -- multiple times and on the second try figured out how to wiggle her second arm free. It's not clear yet whether she likes the result of finding herself on her stomach. Maybe she'll need to figure out the next trick -- rolling back?
Sure was a day full of joy.
