Flip. Flop. Fall.

Ahhh, the warmth of the sun. We are loving being outdoors in our shorts and t-shirts... and Abby Kate's new sandals, of course. She was very confused about the strap-between-the-toes thing at first. I stood her up after putting them on and she remained there staring down at her toes. I asked her if she wanted to play outside - which usually gets her running for the front door - and she didn't move an inch. She stood there frozen as if I had taken away all mobility with this pink, polka-dotted form of foot torture. After a few increasingly confident steps, she was running again. Until she fell. Then we had another first - an adhesive bandage for her scraped and bleeding knee. And then we learned a new word. We heard "boo-boo" for the rest of the day. I like putting AK in her little shorts, but now I feel guilty because I know her jeans would have prevented her scraped knees.

I have many favorite things, and one of them is definitely chubby toddler feet in flip flops!!! haha. I was so excited to get down Hannah's old flip flops to try on Madeline the other day. No guilt mama-- scraped knees are good for character building! :)

Is that a pink band-aid to match or are my eyes deceiving me?!
C-U-T-E flops!

You just made me miss Meridian. Ahhhhhhhhh, the warm weather! I'm anxious for the Navy to decide that we should live in a warm climate again. ;) I can't believe we have twin bedroom decor--but you know what they say--those great A D Pi minds think alike. Hehe!
