Warm Legs & Cheerios On Her Mind

I bought these cute penguin leg warmers for Mia. But with all the liquid being pumped through Sophie, her diapers were leaking bad. Which means all of her pj bottoms are in the dirty clothes pile. So I decided she needed these more than Mia. (Plus I just ordered another pair. LOL!)

Perfect solution. And what a great coincidence when I got there tonight and found her dressed in this sweet little green gown. What a stylish ensemble! She's looking at me like... "Dude what's with these socks? They have no feet." I wish I knew how to work the video function on my digital. Cuz I would've loved to have shown you all Maryellen's re-enactment of that scene in Flashdance. You know the one. Where Jennifer Beals legs move faster than any humans ever should. I think the woman has spent too much time in that little room. She's gone cuckoo.Sophie's doing so well that the hospital is kicking her out tomorrow. Yay Sophie!! Momma is very happy, too. That's 3 days ahead of schedule. So they'll be stuck at the Ronald McDonald House until Thanksgiving when they fly home. There are some follow up appointments she has to stay in town for. Cutie patootie is just excited about eating Cheerios tomorrow. She told me the no food- no drink thing really sucked. See how happy she is....Cheerios rock!And this is what she chose to play with in the playroom today. Future blogger. Just like momma.

Every little girl needs penguin leg warmers and a Mom who is kooky. That is great news that they are leaving the hospital early.

Hugs to both of them!

Leg warmers? I didn't know they even still made those! Those are great, not real handy for Florida, but great in their own penguin sort of way!
