This necessitated a visit to the Mall, where, honestly, I go about once a year-maybe!
We found some handsome leather sandals.......
and some nice new socks!
As it happens right outside the shoe store is a little ones play area, no one over 42" tall is allowed! Well, other than parents/grandparents that is.
Matthew loves that place, he ran.......
and climbed .............
and hollered with joy for a good thirty minutes.After which he was quite worn out so we had to leave before he got fussy.
We passed the Brookstone store and there right up front were these fascinating balls that flash wonderful colors when bounced.
One of them came home with us and it is his new favorite toy-for the moment! He bounced it all over the house until GM decided it must be nap time!
He's getting too big for the Pack'nPlay but it wouldn't be quite so bad if he would lie lengthwise instead of crosswise!
I think I might skip the gym tonight, I am feeling a little weary myself!
