gracie had her blanket. that's about my only experience with this kind of thing. she received her blanket as a newborn and attached herself to it for the next 30 months. we were considering fashioning a backpack out of it in the event she couldn't part with it come kindergarten. her wedding dress may have been affected, too were it not for a bribery deal that involved a target shopping spree. who knew the equivalent of one's life security would be found in a vanity set, a barbie movie and a bratz doll?
well, here we are again and this time i am the perpetrator. this time i made the purchase.  asa's halloween costume came down to whatever the thrift store had in store for me yesterday.  as i turned the first corner and saw these bright yellow rain boots, i knew he would be a fireman. of course the rest of the costume came together in that store because that's the kind of day i was having. nothing slowing me down.
asa seemed to attach himself to these boots and little did i know...come naptime, my easy to sleep child turned psycho baby when i tried to pull off the boots. bedtime, same story. 

all i have to say, is it's a good thing these suckers are a couple sizes too big, cause it'll be a couple years before target bribery will stand a chance.

Heidi-Asa is so cute! I can't stand it. Jude has a similar relationship with his frog backpack. He insists on wearing it everywhere--church, football practice, errands. He gets very upset when we have to take it off to strap him in his car seat.

Hey! Fun to see you back in the blogging world! I can't believe how much this little one reminds me of Marshall when we were still living in VA! Hope all is well with your beautiful fam. :)

just don't let him shower in them. i can smell them already. he was a sweet little fire fighter, but don't limit him to fires. those boots come in handy in a myriad of situations.
