Baby Shoe

I had to share this sweet video. Ava has a habit of turning any object into a pretend baby doll. Water bottles, sippy cups, remote controls. In the car when she has nothing to play with, she cradles her leg in her arms, strokes her shoe like a baby's head and sings, "baby" to her leg. It is hysterical but I rarely have the video camera in the car to capture it.

The other day when I was putting her shoes on (yes, on the table, but there were 2 adults on either side of her, FYI), she grabbed the shoe out of my hand and started singing to it. I love how she is watching herself in the dining room mirror and cracking herself up. Apparently she realizes just how silly this is. I can see that she has a sense of humor developing!

There's a big smile on my face after watching "little mommy" Ava love on her shoe-doll Bless her soul(sole??!

In Edinburgh's Museum of Childhood, there's a battered old shoe that a little child turned into a doll over 100 years ago. Where there are a will and a wish, children make toys out of whatever is around them.

It's so good to see Ava's imagination - and sense of humor - at work. What a cutie she is.

It's also clear in this video that Ava is losing that toddler look and is rapidly turning into a little girl. So many changes since she came home...

Best wishes,

Ava always brings a smile to my face! And it never ceases to amaze me that children can pretend that anything is anything! I just want to reach through the screen and give her a big squeeze!
