And here's another picture of her studying the water (just like her Dad....maybe she was interested in Mr. Jefferson's efforts to set up a place where hydraulic modelers can practice their work in peace without their spouses asking for the umpteeth time, "So...what is it that you DO?!?!").
However, the real impressive stuff comes next. I remember when Hadley was first born, walking around downtown Silver Spring with her. I saw a little girl who looked like she just learned to walk practicing her new found freedom on the grass. She fell down and I watched her push herself back up and continue walking. I thought this was simply unbelievable and couldn't imagine how it is we learn how to do that. But here Hadley is splashing in the water in one video, and in the next doing a fine impression of Cookie Monster. She is certainly becoming a little girl.
