Bad Daddy!

So Merrilee is growing like a weed. And her feet are getting big. So, she needed some new shoes. Shoe shopping is usually mommy's job. Mommy loves to shop for shoes -- for herself AND for Merrilee.

But mommy's in the big sandbox, and daddy had to do the shopping. But daddy hates to shoe shop at stores. So, he decided to shop on line.

When he got to the Kohl's site, he just couldn't make up his mind. What to pick...what to pick...

Today the box finally arrived. Here for your viewing pleasure -- Merrilee's new shoes -- all six pairs!

So which are your favorite. Feel free to cast your vote!

A package from mommy arrived the other day. It was filled with books for Merrilee.

We are so lucky to have a little girl who loves to read.

The moment we opened the box, she plopped in her Dora chair and started to read...

The subject doesn't seem to matter to Merrilee. She just loves books and loves to read. Oh yeah...she likes to open the mail too!

We haven't been updating the blog much lately. We've been so busy and just haven't had the time. Also, we haven't done much cool stuff. Everyone in Baltimore has just been letting all the snow melt.

Today though, Merrilee got to go to a birthday party for her friend Samantha. The party was as a place called the Jump Zone in Columbia, Maryland. They have a lot of inflatables, and after a few minutes of shyness, Merrilee really warmed up and got into trying out all of them...

Here are a few more shots from the day as a slideshow.

Merrilee is doing just fine. She is growing into quite a little lady and she loves going to school everyday. She loves her teachers, Ms. Jess, Ms. Debbie and Ms. Richie. She's had to spend a few nights away from home because of daddy's work, and she's really enjoyed being with Mr. Steve, Ms. Bea, and Ms. Jessica. Oh yeah, she loves being with their dog Emma too!
