20090612_0927 I got these adorable baby shoes in the mail this week from my bloggy friend Valerie from the Frugal Family Fun Blog. Valerie and I started our blogs at around the same time, and I’ve loved reading about all of her wonderful ideas. She has amazing recycling craft ideas, and posts a lot of outdoor activities too. I’m so glad I got to meet her (virtually, at least), and I can’t wait to try these shoes on our little baby girl in a couple months – Thank You, Valerie!

In other happy news, Johnny wore THE SHORTS with no complaints yesterday, so that sewing paid off after all. Doesn’t he look handsome?

This is as “still” as I could get him to be for photos – my little 18-month-old climbs, runs, and turns somersaults(!) nearly non-stop these days!
