My little ladybugs.
March 13, 2010

When Charlotte was born, the entire hospital commented on her feet.  She has massive feet.  The hospital had a paper that they kept in the bassinet to identify her.  Her feet were so large that her inky footprint did not fit in the box on the paper.  Like mother, like daughter, my family jested.  Ignore them, I whispered to her in the night.  You have beautiful feet, with ten perfectly lovely little ladybugs attached.

And ever since, I have called her toes my little ladybugs.

These little ladybugs are perfect,
These little ladybugs are neat,
These little ladybugs are dainty,
Momma says they make a tasty treat!

These little ladybugs are pretty,
These little ladybugs are sweet,
Yes, these little ladybugs are perfect,
For they sit atop your perfect little feet!

Have a happy weekend, all!  Do you have any plans?

    Jude’s too!! Except, for some reason, we don’t get the footprints on paper here. The nurses all just randomly teased him about them…and his hands.

    Plans? We are gonna hit the outdoors and spend the day wandering. It’s over 40 degrees, and that is cause to celebrate up here in Winterland.

    WooT!

    Oh I love those! Oh… now I’m curious as to how big her feet are? Can you measure them? Just because I want to compare my son’s feet… because I’m weird like that.

    What a great photo and I love that you refer to them as ladybugs :) We had a fajita cookout yesterday with a bunch of family! Food was yummy, temps were in the 70’s and it was fun catching up with a bunch of family we hadn’t seen in awhile! Thank you for telling me the story about eating chocolate to feel the baby move. I will definitely give that a try!!!

    Great story, and super cute feet! I was wearing size 8 shoes in grade 6 and I was teased now and then. So not fun!!

    The first words my oldest heard were “ look at the size of the mitts on this kid”  The next words were, “ i’ve delivered babies small than this placenta”  What can I say, we are both overachievers.
