Sandbox, snowboots, & power nap

This past weekend was gorgeous and we got to a park both Saturday and Sunday.  Bing-Bing really enjoyed the sandbox, becoming really intent on her shoveling.

This afternoon I went to a consignment shop to look for snow boots.  I did great, finding snow boots, her next pair of sneakers (she’s outgrowing shoes quickly), a pair of PJs, and an awesome shirt for under $25.00.  I love this place.  Anyway, I showed The Bing her new boots and she had to try them on immediately and then wouldn’t take them off!  We went for a walk outside and she insisted on wearing them, even though it was warm enough for the next door neighbor girls to be barefoot.  Bing-Bing looked ready for a ski trip.  It was great to see her run in these babies, though, as clunky and too-big as they are.  After I put her to bed, I hid them or I know she’ll want to wear them to The Academy and I just don’t think they are appropriate for all day.  We’ll pull them out for special occasions – like SNOW!

These boots are awesome!

Here she is taking one of her odd and wonderful power naps.  I took a picture of one before, but this one is much better – head on the floor, butt full in the air and always with one thumb in her mouth and the other hand holding a Taggies blanket or ball.  She’ll do this for 10 to 30 seconds, feel revived, stand up and move on.  After several power naps and we know it’s time for bed.
