Sock it to me
Oh no! Heidi is entering my least favorite phase of baby/toddler mode. She knows how to take of her socks. I think sometimes when I put her in her crib for nap time that I should leave her shoes on because she apparently hasn't figured out how to take those off with much success. Now every time I go in there after a nap she has become sockless. I hate to admit that I am becoming a grumpy old man but it's annoying. To have to put her baby socks on repeatedly is a challenge because she won't sit still for anything. Sometimes I get her to put them back on while she is help captive in the high chair but laughs repeatedly as she Jackie Chan's my hands with her tiny baby feet. When I ask her why she took her socks off she laughs which just goes to show she knows exactly what she is doing. When Sarah was her age she quickly learned to take her shoes and socks off with much dexterity. Even short car rides with Sarah you would hear her taking her shoes off, throwing them down like she was Rob Gronkowski and squealing with laughter as she turned each sock inside out. I would get to the destination and have to reapply socks and shoes almost every time. I can honestly say I am looking forward to summer and to have an alternative to shoes and socks.
