My guy sure likes shoes these days!  Yesterday on Instagram I posted his little feet trying to put a pair of shoes on from the book I read to him.  He is obsessed with putting shoes on.  If he finds anyone's shoes lying around, you can be sure to find him sticking his feet in and trying to walk in them.  It's the best!  I love watching him try and balance as he sticks his feet into the big shoe and them dragging them across the floor to walk.
Today, rather than taking a picture using my Iphone, like I normally would in this case, I happened to be sitting at my computer which is where my Nikon sits.  I quickly grabbed it and in the moment was able to grab a couple of his obsession...  shoes!  This morning they are on his hands, tonight I guarantee he will be trying to put them on his feet!

It's beginning... my little Sky is growing up and having what I would call teenage issues.  Today, while getting her ready, she didn't like anything in her closet.  She complained about there only being Matilda Jane clothes and she doesn't like Matilda Jane clothes.  I then out of frustration said, "Fine, you can start to buy your own clothes.  You can then pick out whatever it is YOU want to wear."  I know, I was being ridiculous!  I just hate thinking that she doesn't have the same taste in clothes and I already struggle with what to put her in.  Do I dress her in the cute little girl stuff or the more grown up stuff?  She's my oldest and so I haven't yet figured this out.  It's uncharted territory for me.  So after picking something out, I felt was pretty dang cute, I told her to put it on and ask dad what he thought.  Of course, dad gave her the thumbs up and tried telling her that she looked cute!  She sobbed while I braided her hair.  "I'm not cute," she said.  I told her when I was done I was going to take a picture of her and show her how cute she was.  This is what she did... out came the camera, and out came the fun, cute Sky I know and love.

Today, I sat around and watched Radd play.  His hair glistened in the sunlight.  I thought to myself "is it time to cut it?"  I can't bring myself to do it.  I love his little shag.  But how long is too long?  I've seen little boys with shags and it gets so long they start to look like a girl.
I love this little guy to the moon and back!  When I snuggle him, I stare at his long eyelashes and his cute little freckle.  I play with his hair and brush it out of his eyes.  He's my little angel!
