to the park we went…

… it was there, at the park, this afternoon, that we met “Tutty” {not Tooty, Tut-ty}. I was glad I had my camera.

She has eyelashes like I’ve never seen on a child.


And since my kids were looking very RESISTIBLE…


and she was looking rather IRRESISTIBLE… I took pictures of her instead.


I absolutely LOVE her hair. She can wear it. Don’t you think? I think Paige may have stolen one of her bee cookies in this picture.


Tutty, if your mom didn’t seem so sweet I might have tried to hide you in my diaper bag and made a mad dash for the car.


But then Morgan would have insisted that we take her to get her ears pierced too and since I told her she had to wait until she was 25, I let you go home with your mom. But I do hope we see you at the park again soon!

Round 2 coming soon….

    Julianna has the same ear piercing rule as me… 16 years old. I don’t know why it really matters but since I wasn’t allowed to, neither is she! haha
    Precious little girl. Does her mom read your blog? Did you have to get a consent form signed to post her pics? haha

    Beautiful!! How is that children have such gorgeous eyelashes?
    My mom made me wait til I was 13 to get my ears pierced. It took me a long time but I now understand why!

    What a cutie! I love baby’s ears pierced! I got both my daughters’ ears pierced when they turned 6 months. My husband made me WAIT until then!

    I was hoping she was a “Too-tie” like me. I always feel encouraged when I meet another person with my name. It’s lonely, you know.

    Don’t tell M, but my dad brought me to the mall ( mom wasn’t present) and I was maybe 4 or 5?.. any way I decided I wanted to get my ears pierced and well…daddy let me! I have no idea what my mom thinks about that…20 years later!

    I love reading your blog! I feel I have to ask, though– did you ask the mother of this little precious girl if you could post her pic and name? You might want to let her know, since many readers (and we know all are not ‘stable,’ from previous posts clearly) know the city in which you live. Some parents are incredibly guarded about the digital age and the exposure of their children. Hope this is not meant as a criticism rather than a concerned comment about the little girl. You do great work!
