And why? For the most superficial of reasons...
Kate and I both just got cute new rain boots.
Tired of waiting for our first opportunity to use them "for real," I decided we'd try them on with our jammies the other night. Kate was very excited about it. She often has us change out her shoes several times in a day, and she was thrilled to have a new pair, especially some so different from her usual repertoire. She learned a new word and kept saying "boo! boo!"
And look! Mommy's got some too!
She also has a cute new raincoat that I've forgotten to put on her on the two rainy days we had in September. She freaked out when I tried to try it on her with the boots, though. She just wanted to walk around in her new boots!
They were a little big, and different from other shoes, so she was a little wobbly.
But, man, are they cool!
She loved taking them off and putting them back on.
Can't wait for our first October rain!!
Now when will that be???
