Two Simple Things That Make Me Smile

I crept into the bedroom with the camera.  The room was completely dark and all I could hear was the faint sound of her baby breath.  I took one picture.  She didn't stir.  I took another. 
One soft sweet baby leg hanging out of the crib.  Dangling in the air in all its cuteness.  I wanted to kiss her toes.  I wanted to tickle the bottom of her foot. 
I resisted and closed the door smiling.

So girly and so sweet.  Even cuter now that she is standing and walking.  Rufflebutts make me smile,
make me appreciative that I am blessed with a baby girl. 
Who is girly, loves her shoes, and loves her daddy.
(She's not really playing with the outlet, and it is covered, so don't go calling DCFS on me...and odd how this baby has muscle tone....seriously, you can practically see her hammies and quad muscles.)

I love when there's a random foot hanging from the crib! ;) So dang cute.
Girls are sooo much fun, right?

That is the cutest Carol! I love it! I would love to use glass containers in school, but I did not think it would be allowed. No one ever said anything? Maybe I am going to start sending her with glass. That is what we use at home and when we are out together. Have a great day!

I love rufflebutts! And I agree... having a girl is a lot of fun! I love my boys of course, but there is just something special about dressing up baby girls! :)

Jealous. I tried to get pics of her sleeping last night and she didn't cooperate. :( Love the baby feet!

Love the little foot! I love the way babies sleep and I love being able to capture it in a picture (which is very hard to do). I have never heard of rufflebutts but it is adorable. I actually didn't notice the outlet in front of her, but your comment about DCFS made me giggle. :)

Awwwww, how precious!! I feel cheated that I didn't know about things such as Rufflebutts when Nut was a baby. I wonder what would look less ridiculous - a 2 year old in them or her baby brother in them? Hmmmm....

Just kidding. I wouldn't do that to him.

When anybody was home.
