Hey, Mom, I’m 6 now. I don’t need to hold your hand ALL the time.
That’s what Suri Cruise seemed to be saying today as she went with mom Katie Holmes to spend some playtime in Manhattan’s Chelsea Piers.
At first, she was her usual reticent self in front of the photographers, shielding herself behind a gigantic Angelina Ballerina doll. But later, as mother and daughter headed back to their car, Suri broke away and dashed across the crosswalk on her own.
She really has grown up! Suri has lost the babyishness in her face, and her height and long hair emphasize the fact that her toddler days are far behind her.
So maybe it’s time for Mom to gently suggest to her young lady that she doesn’t need to bring toys with her wherever she goes…
Take a look at these fun new pictures!
There’s a child there somewhere… 1 of 7Suri's Angelina toy is almost bigger than she is!
Matching buddies 2 of 7Maybe it's the camera angle, but Suri's toy seems to be wearing the same dress that Suri was seen in later in the day.
Later, Mom! 3 of 7As they headed back to their car, Suri broke from her mom and made a fast getaway.
Pretty – but chilly? 4 of 7Suri's sundress and bare legs might not have been the best choice for a cool and breezy day in Manhattan.

No worries 6 of 7Suri didn't get far, and Katie was right behind her. Mother and daughter are looking more alike all the time, aren't they?
Well equipped 7 of 7Katie's bag is both smart and a smart choice for a mom who may have to supply snacks and Band-Aids at a moment's notice.
