Woody One Boot

Today we are at the Buddy Walk, so I'm setting up this post of Sean playing with his buddy to run today.

"Momma! Momma! CHEESE!"

"AHHGGGH! Oh no, where's Woody's foot?"

"Look down here, Woody."

"Oh, here it is!"

Hours and hours and hours of fun.

This is actually Woody the Second. The first Woody doll was given to Aidan when he was 2 1/2 and had his tonsils & adenoids removed. He loved that doll like crazy, took him everywhere and played with him every day. I gleefully remember taking Aidan to the post office one day and he told the post man in his sweet-little-boy-voice, "I have a big Woody!"

Eventually, Sean took over Woody I and played hard with him. Woody lost a hand. Woody took way too many swims in the potty. Woody got coated in mud. Paint was worn off of his face. He had teeth marks on limbs, his nose. Then one day Sean did a little diaper digging with Woody and mom had enough of that. Woody I was buried in the dumpster.

Nana gifted Sean with Woody II for his birthday and Sean's face lite up with joy. Mind you, his birthday was Sept 4, so we haven't had this new doll long. Already he has had his foot amputated and has had a mud bath or two. He's been dubbed "Woody One Boot."

He sure makes a little boy a great buddy.

Oh that is just the cutest thing! I was trying to find a Jesse (from Toy Story II) doll for Kayla since when we went to Disney World and Kayla "met" Woody & Jesse, she wouldn't leave Jesse, she just snuggled up into her. Unfortunately they closed our local Disney Store, so I haven't been able to find one.

That is funny about Woody I! Sounds like the 2nd may join him in a year or two if he already has an amputated foot! He must play hard!!

Hope the Buddy walk goes great. It is so nice today here. Ours is in 2 weeks at Arrowhead stadium. I hope the weather is prefect!

That's the exact same style Woody Micah likes! He loves the flexible, wiggly legs and dances Woody everywhere. I absolutely love that your little dear loves Woody, too.
