And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair. ~ Kahlil Gibran

Little Sprout loves her 'water-soop'. For those of you not in the know, 'water-soop' is LittleSprout-ese for bathing suit. This pic is of her wearing a regular diaper, swimsuit, and swim diaper. Oh yeah. She likes to wear the 'water-jacket' all the time, too.

Goof ball.

Unfortunately, she doesn't like the water half as much as she likes the 'soop'. I figured it out, though. I got her one of those ridiculously small inflatable wading know, the kind for bitsy little infants.... and stuck it out in the yard next to the sandbox.

She loves it! The water is only ankle deep, so she feels totally safe. She gets to wear her 'water-soop'. And it is all hers, because Big Sprout just doesn't fit in there.

Happy Day, Little Sprout. Happy Day.

cute picture! At least she's not wearing her boots with the "soop" I've seen that on some little kids and it always cracks me up!

Awe, she is so cute. I enjoyed this little story so much.

Thanks for sharing a little glimpse into your life.

Love the soop! At least she is willing to wear it and not spend all her time trying to peel it off! Voice of experience talking!

Oh, she has done that in the past. I hope her fashion sense gets better as she ages!

You are welcome

Are you kidding?! I can't get the dang thing off of her. Of course, I have to admit that this must be nicer than having a little nudist child.....especially in a MN winter!
