My Sunday Photo

One day this week Annabelle & I had arranged to do a little soft play morning and as we were getting ready I turned to see this adorable little sight. My very own Little Miss Belle attempting to put on her very own shoes.

I acted almost like I was creeping up to a rare species of animal that I was afraid to distract and for it to run away….so I hunched down very quietly and got out my phone and was able to just sit, watch and marvel at her determination to crack this putting-on-her-own-shoes malarkey.

She carried on placing a shoe on one foot, letting it dangle there, reaching for her other shoe, for the one she put on to fall off…and she’d just repeat. All the while I could do nothing but sit in absolute wonder and joy at my baby girl trying to conquer this bit of independence for herself.

I love my Sunday photo this week, my little girl is growing up and I’m unsure if I’m completely ready for that to happen yet.

    Aww that’s a brilliant little photo of her reaching that big milestone. We’re trying to teach z to dress himself right now. There are a lot of frustrated groans from him that we’re still working on 🙂

    Oh she is absolutely adorable! Toby loves trying to put his shoes on too…but not as much as he likes wearing our shoes!
