My Doll Baby
Lucy has been turning on the two year old charms lately in the most fantastic ways.
Last week, we were driving around town running errands at sunset and she just up and noticed how pretty it was-ON HER OWN. She just said, "Look mommy! The pretty colors!"
Be still my heart.
On Saturday, we were getting ready to go play in the park and it was really nice out and I was putting on my Chaco sandals that my girlfriend Natalie has as well. And Lucy said, "Are you wearing Natalie's shoes?" But in an adorable two year old voice that sounded like "Wear Natalie's shoes?" with a very high pitch to it.
I love this for so many reasons.
1. I haven't worn my Chaco's in months. Maybe since September or October. Neither has Natalie. But Lucy knew that Natalie had these shoes.
2. Lucy noticed my SHOES. Hello. Someone NOTICED ME IN MY HOUSE. It's like a miracle that I am becoming a person worth noticing again. And not just that she noticed me. But my shoes. Only a little girl would do that.
3. I was wearing my Chaco's in February because it was 78 degrees in February. The Lord knew that I was about to lose my mind with all of the snow days and nonsense that this winter has brought. I am so ready for Spring that I am about to snap.
Of course all of this changed on Sunday when Lucy peed in her underwear and so Matt was letting her run around the porch without anything on under her dress. She was crawling into my lap when she pooped right onto the floor next to my chair.
Thank goodness she did not poop on me or I might have thrown up right onto my child.
