I once heard that puppies like to chew on shoes because they have the most intense "essence," let's say, of the people that they love the best. I don't know if that's why Olivia is obsessed with shoes as well, but I'll go with that.

The other day, dear Cousin Amy came to babysit while I got caught up on some work. When Olivia went after her shoe, Amy swiftly saved the poor tiny baby from the disgusting germs that inhabit our street, where the shoes had previously been walking. Amy will make a wonderful mother.

Compare that to my reactions:
--Yell "Stinky! Stinkpoo!" over and over in an effort to make baby laugh.
--Record on digital while baby rubs contaminants all over her face.

But it shore is funny to watch.
