I couldn’t resist . . . I had to buy Elle a pair of Crocs. I bought Owen a pair when he was about the same age. I remembered photographing them for my blog so I searched for the post. I had to smile when I read what I wrote . . . check it out HERE (scroll down below this post). I spent about the same amount on Elle’s adorable Crocs. I must have been a little smarter back then because I photographed Owen’s Crocs without him in them. I had a tough time getting Elle to stand still long enough to get a shot of her feet. Owen wanted to show me his “new trick” on the swing set. He’s getting so big. He made me nervous at first, but I quickly realized he had it all under control 🙂 . The last two photos show an emerging personality trait of Elle’s. As I was driving home from school today I heard Elle saying “woof, woof” in the backseat (however she sounds more like a hooting owl than a barking dog). I thought to myself, “Isaac used to sit in the car seat and yell “DUTCH!” (his word for car- we have no idea why), Truitt used to look for “choo choo’s”, Owen spotted every flag we passed and now Elle talks to the dogs”. Elle absolutely ADORES dogs. She calls Nancy’s dog Bodie “Bo-bo” yet she calls all three of her brothers “Isaac”. She pets the dogs and “loves” the dogs by laying her head on them. It’s truly amazing how different each of my kids are.
