Walking with my girl: this child absolutely loves to be outside.  As soon as I mention the word, she chirps, “Ow-diye! Ow-diye!” and will go to the coat closet, pull out her pink cowgirl boots, and attempt to put them on, yelping for help.  When I produce her pink mittens, she tries to put them on.  She is an adorable little spitfire all day long–but when she is outside or fully dressed for it and just waiting by the door, she is perfectly calm.  I think we will be living outdoors this summer.
